Covid-19 impact on China Cancer Drug Market:

The coronavirus epidemic has significantly impacted all sectors of society. Consequently, the healthcare industry has been particularly affected, including cancer treatment and the development of new drugs. Throughout the pandemic, many clinical cancer experiments were halted in China. For patients with advanced cancer, some of these experimental medicines represented their final hope.

Furthermore, the pandemic directly impacted the supply of oncology drugs to patients, due to which China cancer drug market declined. Remarkably, the pandemic negatively influenced China's oncology drugs industry, which depended on quick testing and diagnosis as well as prompt and coordinated multimodal treatment. However, the initial and long-lasting impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on the use of cancer drugs diminished during the post-pandemic period in China.
