Following requests from Swedish Minister of Health Lena Hallengren, Norway is sending 2,600 units of a medicine used to treat corona patients.
“Norway has received a request from the Swedish authorities for assistance, and the Norwegian Medicines Agency has therefore permitted parallel exports of the drug propofol to Sweden,” says Health Minister Bent Høie to Dagbladet.
Propofol is a short-lived anesthetic that allows you to continuously administer it for heart rate and blood pressure, the newspaper writes.
As a result of a completely different infection situation than in Norway, with 3,679 deaths and over 30,000 infected, Sweden has had a shortage of the remedy.
Among other things, Swedish authorities asked veterinarians to limit the use of the anesthetic in April.
