No confirmation that Chloroquine destroys COVID-19, says medical doctor

Sat Mar 21st, 2020 - Ogun

Dr Tinuade Ogunlesi, a medical doctor with the Ogun State Teaching Hospital, Abeokuta, has said that there is no confirmation yet to the claim that Chloroquine can destroy COVID-19.

Ogunlesi told News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Saturday against the backdrop of reported claim that Chloroquine is an antidote to COVID-19.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the United States President, Mr Donald Trump, had earlier in the week said that Chloroquine could cure COVID-19.

Ogunlesi, however, said that the U.S. Food and Drug Agency had not recommended Chloroquine for clinical use to prevent or treat COVID-19.
