In the peak time of the Covid pandemic outbreak, countries like Brazil sought a shortage of essential medicines and medical aids. The National Association of Private Hospitals (Anahp) conducted a new survey with its member hospitals to identify the lack of medication and supplies to treat patients infected from coronavirus. 71 institutions participated in this survey, and the conclusion is that the situation was still critical. About 30% of hospitals had a stock of anesthetic and “intubation kit” for only five days or less.

To overcome this shortage, hospitals looked for an alternative to import medicines and other medical aids from India, the only country capable of supplying the Brazilian pharmaceutical market requirements. India is known as one of the largest generic medicine manufacturers in the World, and in those crucial times, India helped Brazil meet its required demands. India helped Brazil keeping in mind the rules and regulations, and Anvisa (National Health Surveillance Agency) helped by providing solutions to bureaucratic obstacles in facilitating prerequisite treatments at the time.

The significant role played by Ikris during the Covid-19 pandemic.

According to the survey conducted, Brazil urgently needed oxygen, anesthetic medicines, an intubation kit including a set of anesthetics, sedatives and muscle blockers, and ICU beds due to critical Covid-19 cases. India helped Brazil in every way possible.
