New York implements naloxone vending machines, the “magic” drug against overdose

naloxone, the drug that quickly reverses the opioid overdose, will be distributed free through vending machines in New York.

He is known as the magical medicine that saves life to those who don’t even know they are dying. A small dose of this substance allows the person who suffers an overdose to recover in just a few minutes. The doctor Jorge Zarco has told laSexta that it is “a new device that is easy to apply, through inhalation.”

The United States lives an authentic fentanyl epidemic that has marked an entire generation: About 100,000 people die each year from an overdose of this substance.

Beatriz Marín Padura, director of the FAD Youth Foundation, told laSexta that “the crisis is terrible… and it has affected upper-middle class white peoplewho went to the doctor for a prescription for pain issues”.

The figures are already unapproachable and require emergency solutions, such as the one taken in New York. You can learn more details by consulting the video located at the top.
