Panaji: Goa Health Department is working on additional treatment protocol for COVID-19 positive patients in the state with the introduction of Baricitinib medicine.

Health Minister Vishwajit Rane on Saturday tweeted that the additional protocol will prevent patients from reaching the oxygen stage and also proven to be effective in preventing a Cytokine storm.

In a series of tweets released, Rane wrote “subsequent to our meeting held yesterday with the expert team of doctors, the Health Department is working on additional treatment protocols recently adopted by the Karnataka Government and approved by DRDO and ICMR for emergency use.”

Rane also tweeted “Dr Anoop Amarnath, Head, Scientific Board and Chairman Geriatric Medicine, Manipal Hospital and member of state’s Critical Care Support Team, has supported and approved the usage of Baricitinib. It is to be administered orally from the 5th day of the symptom along with Remdesivir.”

“The use of Baricitinib has prevented patients from reaching the oxygen stage/breathlessness and also proven to be effective in preventing a Cytokine storm. We shall be further modifying our treatment protocol with advice of expert doctors under the guidance of CM,” he tweeted.
