Canada sends 25k vials of Remdesivir, 350 ventilators to India

Canada is sending as many as 25,000 vials of the antiviral remdesivir and up to 350 ventilators from its National Emergency Strategic Stockpile to help respond to the critical COVID-19 situation in India.

A plane equipped with the remdesivir vials and 50 ventilators that were ready for shipment left a Canadian Forces Base in Trenton, Ont. on Wednesday bound for India, where almost 4,000 people died from COVID-19 in the space of a day.

The 25,000 vials of remdesivir, used to treat patients with severe COVID-19 symptoms, is equivalent to more than 4,000 courses of treatment.
