Decision to give anti-HIV drugs to coronavirus-affected Italian couple in Jaipur
Health ministry officials said on Thursday the decision to administer a combination of anti-HIV drugs — lopinavir and ritonavir — on a coronavirus-infected elderly Italian couple at a Jaipur hospital was “initially taken locally”.
The hospital has been asked to inform the health ministry and the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) before administering the drug combination on COVID-19 patients in future, officials said. It was the first time that a combination of the two drugs was used to treat COVID-19 patients amid mounting coronavirus cases in India. The Italian couple are currently undergoing treatment at SMS Hospital in Jaipur.
“The decision to administer lopinavir and ritonavir combination initially was taken locally as they thought it was a severe disease and started the medicine. But we should not draw more conclusions from the same because single patient experiments do not reveal the truth more often.
