The Government of Japan has provided the Lao PDR with the antiviral medicine Avigan as part of a clinical study into the use of Avigan against Covid-19. The medicine, which is enough to treat 100 people, was handed over to the Ministry of Health.

This assistance, aimed at expanding the clinical study into Avigan as a measure against the spread of COVID-19, was provided following a request from the Government of Laos.

It is expected to contribute towards preventing the further spread of a potential second wave of Covid-19.

The Government of Japan highly commends the Government of the Lao PDR for its strength in implementing measures to control Covid-19. This effective containment has resulted in no deaths and no new confirmed cases over the last two months.

This year marks the 65th anniversary of Japan-Laos diplomatic relations and the 5th anniversary of the bilateral strategic partnership.

Japan, as a strategic partner of the Lao PDR, proactively continues to provide assistance not only in the COVID-19 response but in numerous other areas for the people of Lao PDR.
