Pharma versus coronavirus: interviews with General Directors 

General Directors of the leading companies on the market have discussed with the Russian Pharmaceutical Forum the main challenges they are facing during the pandemic, and possible approaches to collaborating with the government on developing both a vaccine and treatments for COVID-19. 

The SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus pandemic has kicked the rate of development in the pharmaceutical industry into a new gear. At the early stages of the epidemic in Russia, the demand for medical masks, antiseptics and antivirals soared. A series of regulatory decisions followed, taken at an unprecedented speed, outlining a new set of rules for maximum retail prices and distance selling of medical products. 

The pharmaceutical industry is undergoing enormous change fuelled by a global crisis in healthcare. But pharma also has a key role to play in the search for ways out of the current situation.
