Cardinal Health is partnering with our suppliers to continuously monitor supply chain implications for pharmaceutical products used to treat coronavirus, which includes brand and generic pharmaceuticals, seasonal cough remedies, and cold and flu over-the-counter products.
Our partners at Red Oak Sourcing have been actively collaborating with pharmaceutical suppliers to understand current and future product supply. Many of our suppliers have confirmed they hold several months’ worth of Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API), used to manufacturer their pharmaceuticals, and finished dose safety stock.
As the COVID–19 situation progresses, we are continually evaluating to determine how we can best manage our inventory. With that, we are balancing requests for urgent needs while continuing to allocate products to meet existing demand.
