The companies are Boston Vietnam Pharmaceutical Joint Stock Company (Boston Pharma), Stellapharm Joint Venture Company (Stellapharm) and Mekophar Chemical Pharmaceutical Joint Stock Company (Mekophar), which respectively prepared Molravir 400mg, Molnupiravir Stella 400mg and Movinavir 200 mg.

As a result, Molravir drug 400 mg in the capsule manufactured by Boston Pharmaceutical Company is sold at 11,500 VND per tablet. A box contains one, two or five blisters of 10 tablets each. Another approved Covid-19 antiviral drug is Movinavir 200mg, which has been shown to work quite well through research and testing, according to its Ho Chi Minh City-based manufacturer, Mekophar. Stellapharm offers its products to consumers for 250,000 VND ($10.9) per box of 20 pills.

Authorization for the above three drugs is valid for three years. Vietnam’s pharmaceutical administration required institutions to manufacture and register manufactured drugs in accordance with records and documents registered with the Ministry of Health. In addition, they must coordinate with medical institutions to strictly comply with relevant regulations on the safety and efficacy of prescription drugs and the side effects of drugs on Vietnamese, and report to the administration.

The Ministry of Health of cities and provinces should notify medical examination and treatment institutions, medical personnel and distributors in the region to inform patients of the benefits and risks of using the drug as well as drugs alternatives in the treatment of Covid-19.

At the same time, it is necessary for the units to strengthen surveillance by detecting cases of adverse drug reactions, sending reports to the National Drug Information Center and monitoring adverse drug reactions in Hanoi or the Center national drug and adverse drug reaction information system. Monitor reactions in Ho Chi Minh City in accordance with applicable regulations.
