The world is grappling with an unprecedented crisis. The focus remains not only on controlling the spread of Covid-19, but on ensuring the safety of those who are working at the frontlines of the pandemic to contain it and those whose livelihoods have been severely impacted by it.
At Lupin, we are moving ahead with a clear strategy of safety and preparedness. At the onset of the crisis, we set up a centralized ‘Covid-19 Taskforce’ to monitor the situation daily and put in place adequate safeguards to ensure the health and safety of our employees, develop a business continuity plan, and support the communities we operate in.
All our factories have been maximizing the production of life-saving drugs to ensure that despite the ongoing crisis, our drugs remain available for our communities around the world. We have ramped up production of hydroxychloroquine sulphate and Azithromycin – two drugs being explored as potential treatment for Covid-19.
While our manufacturing site employees are committed towards meeting your healthcare needs, we are committed to their health and safety. We have ensured: complete sanitization of our premises, as well as that of the company buses and cabs that our employees use; thermal screening for employees working at sites; providing sanitizers and masks to employees and support staff at all our premises. Additionally, we are also following all protocols and guidelines issued by global health organizations for COVID-19 to keep our employees safe.
Our Supply Chain team is taking all appropriate actions to ensure that any disruption is minimal and we continue to function regularly during this uncertain time.
Our team at Lupin Human Welfare and Research Foundation is dedicating efforts towards production of face masks for personnel involved in essential services; packed meals are also being served in Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan to migrant workers who have been worst hit in this crisis.
The fact remains that this is a complex situation where despite our best efforts, we all face an uncertain tomorrow. You have our promise that we remain committed to providing you with access to quality healthcare at an affordable price.
