COVID-19: Chloroquine worked in some tests, herbs claims unproven – Nigeria

The Nigerian government says chloroquine had been found in some tests to work in a test-tube as a treatment for coronavirus.

Dr Osagie Ehanire, Minister of Health, disclosed this on Tuesday in Lagos State.

NAN reports that he spoke at the Presidential Taskforce (PTF) briefing on the COVID-19 global pandemic.

Ehanire said that some people claimed they had herbs and local cures for COVID-19, “but the efficacy of medicine needs to be proven before the government can recommend it for people to take”.

He noted that other states were prepared but that “Lagos State is a forerunner because it has the most cases”.

According to the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), there are 238 confirmed cases of COVID-19 with five deaths.
