…Says it is only for use in trials at the moment
By Nwafor Sunday
Having said the United states of America has approved the use of chloroquine for the treatment of Coronavirus, the Food and Drug Administration, FDA, Thursday disagreed with President Donald Trump, noting that ‘chloroquine’ was never approved for use with Covid-19 patients.

Clarifying journalists at a press conference, FDA chief Stephen Hahn said it was only for use in trials at the moment.

Dissecting the White House briefing on Coronavirus, Bloomberg highlighted key takeaways from President Donald Trump’s news conference on the coronavirus response:

Trump spent the bulk of the press conference touting possible treatments for Covid-19, even though the FDA commissioner repeatedly tempered expectations. There are a number of open questions, including when Americans can expect testing to be widely available and when supplies like masks will be more readily available to protect health-care workers.

Like previous White House briefings, this one suffered from conflicting messages from the president and his advisers. Trump, for example, said the malaria drug chloroquine had been approved and could be given to coronavirus patients with a prescription. But an FDA spokesperson clarified mid-press conference that the drug had not been approved for use with Covid-19 patients and FDA chief Stephen Hahn added it was only for use in trials at the moment.

Trump threw his support behind the the possibility of the federal government taking equity stakes in companies hurt by the virus outbreak as part of an economic stimulus plan, an idea floated on Wednesday by top White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow. Stocks went up immediately following the news conference, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average rising more than 200 points in the immediate aftermath.

Trump’s approach to the virus response seems to be throwing it against the wall and seeing what sticks. He revealed the head of cruise operator Carnival Corp. offered its ships to the federal government on a temporary basis. But when pressed on the idea, Trump was vague about how they would be used and suggested the decision to use them would be up to states.

The president escalated his rhetoric against China, saying the world could have stopped the spread of the coronavirus if Beijing had been more transparent at the beginning of the outbreak. He also did not rule out the possibility of retaliating against China for their handling of the virus, even as his own administration fights criticism it was too slow to respond in the U.S.

It's progress in the right direction. It gave a lot of relief to many people when it was announced that chloroquine can treat it

Which do you think is better to the ears:

There is no cure yet for coronavirus
or
We have found chloroquine effective in treating coronavirus, though it is still in trials

Which news do you think is better?

People should be wary of self-medication. You don't just rush into the market and buy off products that are still undergoing clinical trials.


The side effects, complications and contraindications as it relates to the Corona virus are yet to be ascertained.


Let's be patient and stop all this panic buying.



But I have bought 2 Satchets today. See below, in case cheesy

And some wicked souls and buying up the whole stuff in the market.

Na we de do ourselves.

You think if you buy it up so only your family members can get it it would come back to haunt you?

If you buy for only your family members and other people outside don't have it, when your family members get in contact with people who have it, they contact the virus.

That's back to square one

Everyone wants to use Donald Trump to shine.
What's the difference between the 2 speeches? If chloroquine isn't effective, why are they running trials if it hasn't proven some efficacy?

We need to be careful with these things.

Hydroxylchloroquine is different from Chloroquine Phosphate which is popular in Nigeria. Hydroxylchloroquine is less toxic and has fewer side effects than Chloroquine Phosphate.

No one has approved Chloroquine yet. It's still under testing. Trump jumped the gun with that statement. They later corrected him.

Our Chloroquine can still help sha. But be careful with it. Don't use it without a medical prescription.

And please, stay safe people. The availability of Chloroquine doesn't mean that you should still put yourself at risk not every one that used Chloroquine survived Coronavirus.

People older than 65 years of age are susceptible to death from the virus. People that are hypertensive, people with breathing and lung problems, people with an underlying health condition, people with weak immune systems, and people that are chain smokers will die easily from the virus.

And forget all that nonsense talk about Africans not dying from it. The Vice-President of Burkina Faso has died from the virus.
