A few days ago, we posted a blog about Government Opium and Alkaloid Works stopping the manufacture of morphine in their two factories, Ghazipur and Neemuch: Looming crisis in India: opioid access is challenged!

Now we hear that production of opium has restarted in Ghazipur factory (but not in Neemuch). The crisis seems to have been averted for the time being. We do not know yet how long it will take for morphine to reach the consumers; we pray and pray that there is no interruption in supply for any person in pain in any institution in India.
