ALGIERS- Deputy Minister for Pharmaceutical Industry Lotfi Benbahmed said that the locally manufactured and imported drugs are available.

Professionals of the pharmaceutical industry have been expressing "concerns" over the impact of the Coronavirus pandemic on the national drug market.

In a statement to APS, the deputy minister said that public authorities had taken preventive measures, from the beginning of the Coronavirus outbreak in Algeria and around the world, urging local importers and manufacturers to "stock locally-produced raw materials to continue to supply the national market with drugs."

Since the outbreak of the Coronavirus pandemic which had negatively impacted social and economic sectors in several countries in the world, "the national laboratories have anticipated their purchases of raw materials to counter the situation," he said.
