Drugs that are part of the country's basic medicine system are already covered by the electronic monitoring network, reported Xinhua.

The system is used to monitor the entire drug production and circulation process, allowing for the timely and effective control of drugs in the event of safety risks, said authorities.

The system will also help prevent counterfeit drugs from entering the market.
