Earlier, the Drug Controller General of India (DCGI) had approve the usage of this drug to treat COVID19. This tablet was developed in Japan and is most commonly used for treating influenza.

"Given the current scenario of grave health concerns and economic challenges surrounding COVID-19 in India, if we as a pharmaceutical company cannot make a significant positive difference to the society, our company's very existence is inconsequential," Jenburkt Pharmaceuticals Chairman and MD Ashish U Bhuta told CNN News 18.

“The company hopes that the easy accessibility and affordable price point of an effective treatment such as Favivent will offer Indian citizens a timely, much-needed therapeutic solution,” he added.

Cipla too has received regulatory approval to sell the anti-viral drug. “Cipla said it would launch favipiravir as "Ciplenza" in the first week of August, priced at Rs 68 (91 cents) per 200 mg tablet,” NDTV reported
