For the past two weeks, 57-year-old Narine has been treated for a coronavirus infection at home. In an interview with NEWS.am Medicine, he told how much his treatment cost.

The clinic's therapist prescribed antibiotics to the patient from the macrolide group (we do not write the name for obvious reasons). Narine paid 5,600 drams for 6 pills. He also needed to take vitamin D for a month (6,000 drams a month) and inject blood thinners. He had to be given a total of 10 injections, and each of them cost 3,500 drams. Thus, Narine paid 35,000 drams for this medicine.

At some point during the treatment, Narine's condition began to deteriorate, and she was prescribed another antibiotic from the cephalosporins group, for which she paid 4,200 drams. He was also prescribed bronchodilators to make his breathing easier. It cost 2200 drams. The patient also took medicine against the fever, but he did not go because he had it at home.
