AVIJIT NANDI MAJUMDAR, ANM News: Super powers move over, now it’s India’s time to be the benefactor. China, USA, France, Spain, Japan, UK, Russia, have all done a lot of research but failed to come up with any vaccines or antidote against Coronavirus so far. The only possible medicine to combat the pandemic is hydroxychloroquine made in India. The drug has been acknowledged to be effective and in great demand in United States of America and other developed countries. India had banned any export of the drug so that it is amply available for domestic consumption. With coronavirus cases in United States rising daily and people dying, a desperate President Donald Trump called up Prime Minister Narendra Modi and requested for lifting of the ban on the drug. Sources close to the union health ministry mentioned that Modi called an emergency meeting of health department officials and after a series of discussion, decided to lift the ban partially. Union cabinet secretary issued an order lifting the ban on the drug but with a definite rider. Apart from USA, western nations like France, Spain, Italy are also asking India for the medicine.
