05 Apr 2020
The smoke was in the air for so long. Now the fire? Some scientific quarters confirms that the Hydroxychloroquine answers the riddle, COVID-19. Recently, Donald Trump demands the Malaria Drug Hydroxychloroquine from India. India has recently stopped exporting Hydroxychloroquine to other countries. Now the US apply pressure upon India for the release of Hydroxychloroquine otherwise media sources smell Retaliation between the words of Trump. However, Indian health department sources say that Hydroxychloroquine is not at all a drug to treat for COVID-19 patients but it is administered to the health workers as a precaution to prevent infection to the health workers.
Believe it or not, media sources reveal that Dr. Didier Raoult, a renowned doctor in France has treated 80 patients with Chloroquine, the drug applied for the curing Malaria claim the clinical results that out of 80 patients treated 78 recovered within 5 days.
The Minister of Health, France Olivier Véran, further said as per the same media sources that “Hydroxychloroquine and the combination of lopinavir/ritonavir may be prescribed, dispensed and administered under the responsibility of a doctor to patients affected by COVID-19, in the healthcare establishments which take charge of them, as well as for the continuation of their treatment if their condition allows it and with the authorization of the initial prescriber, at home……. as well as for the continuation of their treatment if their condition allows it.”
The liberal Washington Post said to be reported recently that New York is using the drug as a treatment for COVID-19. However, in America, considerable political confusions have developed over Chloroquine, but New York should be out with the results which may lead to a US-wide sanctioned usage of treatment. It is known from the media sources that “New York will use three medications; Hydroxychloroquine and Chloroquine in combination with the antibiotic azithromycin, contributed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency and Amneal Pharmaceuticals…… the first wave of patients will receive Hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin.” Amidst these facts and figures, the other day BBC has reported that the use of Hydroxychloroquine for the treatment of COVID-19 patients as it has been said to be reported is fake news.
