The Ministry of health updated recommendations for use of lopinavir against COVID-19

the Drug lopinavir (plus ritonavir), previously recommended for the treatment of a novel coronavirus, now removed from the recommendations of the Ministry of health. The updated document noted that this drug is not recommended either children or adults suffering from coronavirus.

the Ministry of health said that lopinavir was used in adult patients with COVID-19 in China, USA and Iran. There is no evidence base of effectiveness and safety of using this drug for the treatment of children.

“currently the drug is not recommended either children or adults,” concludes the Ministry of health.

Recall that in June the recommendations stated that lopinavir can be used in combination with ritonavir.
