The Chinese Government closely followed the progress of Covid-19 drug r&d, and ensured the stable and adequate supply of drugs to achieve "drug waiting for patients" situation, after the relevant drugs are included in the Diagnosis and Treatment Program. The coordination of chloroquine phosphate, abidor and fabivir in the treatment plan was strengthened, and production was fully resumed in early February.

The enterprise has been producing at full capacity, with relatively sufficient inventory and guaranteed market supply. Up to now, Lianhua qingwen capsule has a daily production capacity of 2 million boxes and a stock of 30 million boxes.
