Multi-dose packaging must ensure fewer “touchpoints” for the processing of a patient’s prescriptions during the COVID-19 outbreak, while avoiding the uncertainty that occurs with self-medicating. In addition to the regular illnesses’ precautions and treatments, the need for pharmaceutical unit dose packaging is forecast to rise with the global roll-out of COVID-19 treatment programs. Over the COVID-19 era, the demand for pharmaceuticals and medical items has increased, leading in an increase in blister packaging demand.

New hospitals and COVID-19 centers are springing up all around the world as the number of COVID-19 patients rises, increasing the demand for medical treatment. Unit dosage packaging helps existing and post-COVID healthcare delivery operations by minimizing the risk of handling and pouring liquid doses from the same bottle. Furthermore, a surge in demand for unit dose packing in vials has occurred from the increased demand for the COVID-19 vaccine, as well as the government’s large number of immunizations programs.
