This Directive is established under § 52 of the Government of the Republic Act and § 59 (4) of the Health Services Organisation Act:

1. Due to the following:
1.1. on 12 March 2020 by Order No. 76 the Government of the Republic declared an emergency situation in the entire territory of the Republic of Estonia in connection with the worldwide pandemic spread of the corona virus causing the COVID-19 disease and the ensuing threat of mass infections in Estonia;
1.2. owing to the spread of the disease, the nature of the new infectious agent and the resulting scarce resources, the COVID-19 epidemic has become a health emergency;
1.3. increased demand for medicinal products along with other measures established in the international emergency situation may result in difficulties with the availability of medicinal products.

2. Due to the need to ensure people the availability of effective, high quality and safe medicinal products, I decide as follows:
2.1. [repealed – RT III, 08.05.2020, 16 – entry into force 08.05.2020]

[RT III, 08.05.2020, 16 – entry into force 08.05.2020]

3. This Directive shall be made available to health care professionals entitled to prescribe medicinal products and to pharmacy service providers.
