The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control has again warned Nigerians against the use of Chloroquine to treat Coronavirus.
Mojisola Adeyeye, NAFDAC’s Director-General, told journalists in Abuja that all COVID-19 patients must submit themselves to a doctor.
She said, “Nobody should buy Chloroquine and use it. If you have COVID-19, go to a doctor. We have warned Nigerians and shall do that again. Do not take Chloroquine.
“The delay in approving some of the drugs for treatment of the virus is because of the clinical trials the agency is carrying out on them.
“So far, no group or individual has proffered any solution to the treatment or management of the pandemic.” Mojisola said.
