The pharmaceutical industry Uni-pharma SA on Friday announced that it has launched production of the medicine Unikinon, which has recently been widely cited as a possibly successful treatment of Covid-19, after receiving a shipment containing five tons of chloroquine from India the previous Saturday.
Uni-pharma said that it will provide 24 million free doses of Unikinon to the Greek state and the treatment regime will be decided based on the suggestions of the scientific community.
In an announcement, the company noted that “Uni-pharma SA received the licence to produce chloroquine for the first time in Greece in 1984. With a high sense of historic responsibility and social
contribution, Uni-pharma SA states that is always close to Greek patients and their needs by supporting public health, as it has does in the last 57 years, because above all our aim should be the equal access of all patients to treatments, particularly in times of need.”
