New Delhi (NVI): In order to ensure timely treatment to COVID-19 patients, Delhi government today announced that it will set up a control room and directly oversee the entire procurement and distribution process of both Remdesivir Injections and Medical Oxygen.

According to the order, all the drugs inspectors have been directed to personally monitor the whole procurement process of Remdesivir injection starting from placement of order and its receipt by the dealer from the Company depot.

“They will ensure that all the supplies received by the distributors/dealers are entered in their relevant records and all the inventories made are properly accounted,” the order read.

The government also said that all the drugs inspectors will have to submit a daily report on sale and distributions of Remdesivir Injection.

“All the drugs inspectors shall be personally liable for the implementation of this order with immediate effect and this shall include end to end monitoring of Remdesivir Injection,” it said.

“Any deviation from above would be viewed seriously and would attract stringent action as per law,” it added.
