Greece Bans Export of Dozens of Drugs to Avert Shortage

drugs_390_0206Greece’s drug agency EOF announced on Wednesday a temporary ban on the export of dozens of pharmaceuticals to the EU and other countries in order to avert a possible shortage caused by capital controls.
“As an emergency measure to protect public health, there will be a temporary ban on the export” of 73 drug types, the agency said.
“This decision has immediate effect, and while it remains in force, all stockpiling of these products is prohibited,” it added.
The list includes drugs for diabetes and asthma, and vaccines for polio, hepatitis and chicken-pox.
Capital controls were imposed in Greece last month to keep banks from running dry before the radical left government reached a draconian deal with its international creditors on Monday.
