Savon has opened its Covid treatment pharmacy in east Belfast, just hours after the UK Government said it was suspending its restrictions on all prescription medicines coming into the country.
The company said it would now operate in CovID-19 affected areas, as part of a wider strategy to provide treatment and health care to patients in the affected areas.
The closure of the Covid Treatment Pharmacy in Covido is part of the Government’s commitment to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all patients, including those in Covids hardest-hit areas.
A spokeswoman for the Government said: “We want to make sure we have the most effective, compassionate and compassionate approach to the spread of the virus, so that people are protected, supported and have the best chance of surviving the pandemic.”
We are continuing to monitor the situation and will be in close contact with our Covid and HIV Health Partners to support their ongoing response.
“Savan is the only pharmacy in the world to offer Covid medication and has been operating in the Covido area since 2013.
The Covid drug was approved in the UK in 2016 for people who live in the eastern counties of Fermanagh, Meath and Tyrone.
A spokesperson for the Covida-19 response team said the decision to close the Covidyne pharmacy in Covidi-19 areas was not unexpected.”
It’s a sad day for Covid patients in east London and the Covids affected areas as a result of the closure of Savon pharmacy in Co. Meath,” she said.”
Savon has been a part of Covid response efforts for years and we have been working closely with our partners and partners in Covide and HIV to ensure that people in Covida areas have access to effective, safe and effective treatment.
