Contrary to recommendations from some quarters that chloroquine tablets cure coronavirus, the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) has advised Nigerians against the use of it.
NCDC in its official twitter handle warned Nigerians against self-medication, explaining that the use of chloroquine is yet to be approved or validated.
“Please remember that the use of chloroquine and its derivatives for the management of coronavirus disease has NOT been validated and approved. Self-medication can cause harm and lead to death. Do not misuse drugs,” stated the tweet.
