    Shortages of COVID-19 drugs in India lead to huge queues and a spike in the black market
    As cases of COVID-19 continue to climb across the country, drugs like Tocilizumab and Remdesivir, known to treat the virus, are becoming scarce. Some people have travelled across states to queue at pharmacies known to have stocks of the drugs, while others have turned to the black market.

    Yesterday night over 300 people, all kin of Covid-19 patients, queued up outside SK Pharmaceutical in Ghatkopar to buy Tocilizumab. The drug, used for Covid-19 treatment, has been irregular in supply. Hospitals are asking patients to procure it on their own
