Gilead applies for clinical study of coronavirus treatment compound
3rd February 2020

 Gilead Sciences said it is working with health authorities in China on a clinical study to see whether a new compound remdesivir can be used to treat novel coronavirus 2019-nCoV. 

 
The Center for Drug Evaluation of the National Medical Products Administration received a clinical trials application from the company over the weekend.  
 
The China-Japan Friendship Hospital also said in an official statement that it would carry out studies in disease-stricken Wuhan for use in clinical treatment. 
 
A source familiar with drug evaluation and approval work told Shanghai Daily that these approvals are only for emergency treatment purposes. Once the epidemic is under control, the new drugs will have to file for new clinical data to be used in treatment for other patients and diseases.
 
Remdesivir has demonstrated in vitro and in vivo activity against coronaviruses that are structurally similar to 2019-nCoV. It was first developed as a treatment for Ebola virus and Marburg virus infections.
 
“At the request of treating physicians, and with the support of local regulatory agencies, Gilead has provided remdesivir for use in a small number of patients with 2019-nCoV for emergency treatment in the absence of any approved treatment options," Gilead said in a statement over the weekend. 
 
According to a paper published in the New England Journal of Medicine last week, the condition of a US patient with 2019-nCoV infection showed improvement after treatment with remdesivir.
 
Fosun Pharma said its diagnostics division Shanghai Fosun Long March Medical Science Co is also working on expedited approval for its testing kit for 2019-nCoV. 
 
Several kinds of of nucleic acid reagent test kits for the novel coronavirus had been approved by the National Medical Products Administration and received medical device registration certificates at the end of January.

 More than 70 new medical facilities have joined in the battle against the novel coronavirus epidemic in the rural areas of central China's Hubei Province.

The facilities will help battle the pneumonia caused by the novel coronavirus in the countryside, where poor prevention awareness and a shortage of medical facilities could stymie efforts against the epidemic.
 
Authorities will raise public awareness with training sessions in villages and communities, in addition to handing out brochures. They will also measure and record the temperatures of people returning to rural areas on a daily basis.
 
Hubei reported 1,220 new confirmed cases of caused by the novel coronavirus and 42 new deaths on Thursday, authorities said Friday.

No need to stockpile' as supplies assured
29th January 2020

 Shanghai will ensure ample supplies of fresh food and there is no need to stockpile, Shanghai Commission of Commerce said on Tuesday.

 
Shanghai is able to offer ample fresh food, including vegetables and pork, to satisfy demand at the moment, it said.
 
However, due to more people choosing to cook at home and some restaurants closed for the holiday, which used to be a low season for fresh food, demand is surging and the commission is ordering wholesale markets to increase supplies.
 
“Starting from Monday, we have observed a noticeable day-on-day rise in purchases of pork and vegetables in Shanghai’s three major wholesale markets, but there are still reserves after trading,” the commission said in a statement.
 
“To ensure supply, we have contacted suppliers in provinces including Guangdong, Fujian, Hainan and Yunnan to expand supply,” the commission said.
 
It is expected supplies of vegetable will be kept at over 5,000 tons a day in two days’ time and the supply of other foods will also be guaranteed.
 
There is no need to stockpile fresh food, the commission stressed, and fresh food needs to be eaten “fresh.”
