An insulin maker will give free insulin to diabetes patients whose jobs were affected by the coronavirus pandemic

(CNN)One insulin maker is trying to alleviate the financial strain that people are experiencing due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Pharmaceutical company Novo Nordisk announced on Tuesday that it will offer insulin free of charge for 90 days to diabetes patients who lost health insurance coverage because they lost their jobs.
"Patients have enough issues to worry about at this moment," Doug Langa, executive vice president of North America operations and president of Novo Nordisk, said in a statement. "We don't want being able to pay for their insulin to be one of them."
