The FDA is Monitoring the Supply of Drugs During the COVID-19 Pandemic

The FDA is constantly monitoring the availability of medical drugs with expectations that COVID-19 will disrupt the supply chain. The FDA is in touch with more than 180 manufacturers of human drugs so that they are informed of any up-coming shortages including shortages of active ingredients produced in China. The FDA is also aware of the possible disruption of the supply chain for medical devices. COVID-19 movement restrictions, quarantines, and travel restrictions have all impacted the supply of medical drugs. The FDA will continue to monitor and update about the supply chain of human drugs, medical devices, biologics and blood supply, food and animal drugs during the pandemic.
