The Corona Experts Advisory Group (CEAG) of the government of Punjab has issued advice against the use of chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine drugs for the treatment of the coronavirus patients following a death of a man in the US after taking a dose of the drug.
The panel comprised by the provincial government for the clinical management of the coronavirus patients said in a statement that there is no proof indicating the positive results of the use of any of these drugs for curing the affectees of the virus.
Previously, a man died in the area of Phoenix and his wife is in serious condition after the couple took the chloroquine phosphate, which is an additive for cleaning the fish tanks that are also found in an anti-malaria medication.
There were rumours that this anti-malaria medication is also a possible treatment for the coronavirus.
On Monday, Banner Health, the couple that is in their 60s got sick within half an hour of taking the additive. The man was unable to survive but the woman was able to throw up much of the chemical. The woman told media personnel that “Trump kept saying it was basically pretty much a cure”.
She said that her advice would be not to take anything and not to believe in anything, only contact your doctor.
