Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has signed a bill that will help register certain coronavirus treatment medications in Ukraine, reads an update to the bill’s profile on the parliament’s website.
The medications which will be allowed a truncated registration period in the country are those recommended by official health bodies of the U.S.A, E.U., U.K, Switzerland, Australia, Israel, Canada, and China. The bill also accelerates the approval of drugs whose off-label uses have proven to be effective against the coronavirus, or if that off-label use has been recommended by the health bodies of the aforementioned countries.
The bill has now entered into force as a law, and will continue to do so for a duration of three months.
