New Delhi: Drug firm FDC Ltd on Tuesday said it has launched two variants of the COVID-19 drug Favipiravir under the brand names PiFLU and Favenza.

“Early diagnosis and treatment will help in arresting the deteriorating condition of patients, and we will be working with the government and healthcare fraternity to make Favenza and PiFLU available across the country” FDC spokesperson Mayank Tikkha said.

Both the products are currently available across the country, the company said.

The price per tablet is Rs 55 for both the variants, it added.
