President of the Pharmacy Board of Trinidad and Tobago, Andrew Rahaman, says India’s decision to limit medicine exports amid the coronavirus can result in the country seeking other markets to source the items. 

India is one of the world’s largest producers and exporters of drugs, with the US and Europe heavily reliant on the supply.

The coronavirus outbreak has led India to restrict the export of dozens of drugs and various antibiotics, leading to fears of a global shortage of essential medicines.

Mr. Rahaman reflected on the development during an interview with News Power Now on Monday afternoon.

He also underscored the importance of persons seeking professional medical advice.
