With the supply and demand increasing as a result of Covid-19, medication such as paracetamol and other cold medicines have been very popular with many, therefore the distribution of this medication has had to be improved. In addition to this, there are several medications needed to be sent to pharmacies in order to ensure that patients can get the medication that they need even during the lockdown period.
