Two Russian-made coronavirus treatment drugs have been approved for pharmacy sale from Monday.  

The Health Ministry announced that in a statement to the state-run RIA-Novosti news agency Thursday. 

Both drugs are Russia-manufactured variants of favipiravir, the generic version of an anti-flu medication developed by Japan’s Fujifilm. Russia claims that clinical trials have yielded positive results for both drugs.

R-Pharm said on Friday it received approval for Coronavir after Phase III clinical trials involving 168 patients with COVID-19. 
The Russian news agency Moscow Times reports that two drugs, Avifavir and Coronavir, will be available at various pharmacies in Russia from Monday.
