No, Remdesivir cannot be purchased directly from the Pradhan Mantri Jan Aushadhi Kendras at ₹899

A post claiming that Remdesivir can be purchased directly via Pradhan Mantri Jan Aushadhi Kendra at ₹ 899 as against ₹ 4000 charged by medical shops is being shared on social media platforms. Let us verify the claim made in the post.

Claim: Remdesivir Injection can be purchased directly from Pradhan Mantri Bharatiya Jan Aushadhi Kendra for ₹899 as against ₹4000 charged by medical shops.

Fact: Remdesivir cannot be purchased directly from Pradhan Mantri Bharatiya Jan Aushadhi Kendra. This anti-viral drug is not part of the list of generic medicines given on the Jan Aushadhi government website. The claim that Remdesivir can be purchased at ₹899 is also misleading, as only one Indian manufacturer (out of seven) has slashed its price earlier in March. Hence the claim is MISLEADING.
