Topic: Stop prescribing Anti H.I.V drug

With reference to Ministry of Health & Family Welfare &  Directorate General of Health Services (EMR Division) the guideline on Clinical Management of COVID-19 as is displayed in “” as on 20th April – 2020, it recommends the following medicine for the treatment of COVID-19

1)      Lopinavir/Ritonavir  (HIV/ anti Viral Drugs)  as given in Page 14 & 15


However on  Page 14  itself, the ministry accepts – , “There is no current evidence from RCTs to recommend any specific treatment for suspected or confirmed with COVID-19. No specific anti-virals are recommended for treatment of COVID-19 due to lack of adequate evidence from literature. The use of Lopinavir/Ritonavir in PEP regimens for HIV (4 weeks) is also associated with significant adverse events which many a times leads to discontinuation of the therapy.”

The use of the above drugs Lopinavir/Ritonavir (antiviral) for the treatment of COVID-19 should be withdrawn with immediate effect.
