The pharmaceutical industry in Russia is experiencing difficulties due to the spread of coronavirus. From China, the supply of pharmaceuticals for the production of medicines was suspended. For some drugs, supplies will last only until April.

As reported "News", according to experts, the lack of supplies can lead to higher prices for some drugs or their complete disappearance from the shelves of pharmacies. Industry representatives are now trying to find suppliers in India.

Last year, 13,2 thousand tons of pharmaceutical raw materials were brought from China to Russia. This was done with a margin, as from the new year new rules for its marking were to enter into force.

Due to the epidemic of coronavirus, the work of many pharmaceutical Chinese plants has been stopped. For example, in Hubei province, from which 1,5 thousand tons were supplied. If enterprises are idle for more than a month, then Russia will experience an acute shortage of raw materials with all the ensuing consequences.
