The pharmaceutical giant AstraZeneca reported a total of USD 25.8 billion in product sales and a total revenue of USD 26.6 billion for the year 2020. This includes USD 7.4 billion in the fourth quarter alone, reported CNBC.

She added that the additional investment in new medicines in oncology and biopharmaceuticals helped grow their business.
