A new drug against the coronavirus has arrived in Serbia from the United States, president of Serbia, Aleksandar Vucic, announced on his Instagram account.
„A new drug against the coronavirus has arrived in Serbia. It was purchased in the USA, and in Europe, apart from us, it has only been purchased by Denmark, Lithuania and Slovenia. People’s lives and health are priceless!“, the president wrote.
He said that these were tablets and that one box was enough for a patient.
„We procured enough of them for 11,500 patients, and we will procure them for 50,000 patients.
