Covid-19: Chinese Patients Who Depend on Indian Drugs for Lives

Chinese patients who depend on Indian drugs for their lives have been helpless this year with unscheduled flights, noway to mail, and strict customs inspections. As a result, some packages have been on the road for more than 80 days.

A package sent from New Delhi, India to Jiangxi Province, China, contains medicines that patients depend on for survival. In February and March, the life-saving package took 42 days and 20 hours to arrive. But usually, it only takes a week or two.

Indian generic drugs, because of their low prices, in China, cancer patients, HIV-infected patients, and chronic disease patients have formed a secret and huge drug purchase group. Every day, many of the express delivery from India to China are anticancer drugs or AIDS drugs.

The common feature of these patients is that they cannot stop the medication, but the epidemic disrupted their medication rhythm.

On July 23, 2020, an official document from the Department of Posts and Telecommunications of the Ministry of Communications of India once again made Chinese patients worry: from July 25, India’s international EMS is only open to more than 20 countries on the list, and there is no China.

Officials of the Indian Post confirmed the news to a reporter from Caijing on August 4, explaining that due to limited flights between the two countries, business to China was suspended. “But we are weighing the situation and we hope to resume services to many destinations including China.”

A few days later, news came that from August 6th, international EMS services from India to China resumed, but it was also emphasized that during the epidemic, the capacity was still insufficient, and parcels might still be postponed or there might be no flights. “The reporter confirmed again.

Six months after the new coronavirus pneumonia swept the world, there have been multiple suspensions in the mailing of drugs from India to China in 2020. Chinese patients have no choice but to accept the reality, such as price increases, and it is difficult to distinguish between true and false drugs.

Relying on global medical resources to find a way to cure diseases is always blocked this year. Some severely ill patients used to hope to go abroad to see a doctor, but this year they were delayed due to poor traffic in the epidemic and severe epidemic at their destination.

In 2020, Chinese patients still hope to be supplemented by foreign medical resources, but they have to endure more uncertainty.
