The Health Ministry has emphasized that there is no shortage of the TNT drug which is used for heart patients.
Certain newspapers had reported of a shortage of this particular drug in hospitals. The Medical Supplies division of the Health Ministry said that these reports are baseless and unfounded. There are stocks sufficient for seven months and these have been released to all hospitals. The Medical Supplies division has around 1.8 million more tablets. This is sufficient to meet the needs of all hospital countrywide for another one and half months. Accordingly, the Health Ministry emphasized that the report published in certain newspapers about a shortage of this drug was mainly intended to mislead the people.
