Coronavirus: We Are Now Receiving Patients Suffering From Chloroquine Poisoning, Says Lagos Govt, NCDC Cautions Nigerians
On Mar 20, 2020

The Lagos State government on Friday disclosed that following the announcement by President Donald Trump on Thursday that chloroquine can cure coronavirus, hospitals in the state has received patients suffering from chloroquine poisoning.

This was just as the National Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) told Nigerians to desist from self-medication over the coronavirus as the World Health Organisation (WHO) has not approved chloroquine for the management of coronavirus.

The Lagos State government, through the Senior Special Assistant (SSA) on Health, Dr. Oreoluwa Finnih was quoted by the Chief Press Secretary to the governor, Mr Gboyega Akosile, as saying that some hospitals in the state are now treating patients who took too many quantities of chloroquine, leading to poisoning.

She, therefore, urged residents of the state to desist from the massive consumption of chloroquine in the hope of curing coronavirus, adding that the best to do is to visit hospitals.

According to Akosile in his twitter handle @gboyegaakosile: Please note: Hospitals Now Receiving Patients Suffering From Chloroquine Poisoning, Says Gov @jidesanwoolu’s SSA on Health, Dr @Oreoluwa_Finnih. She urged people against massive consumption of Chloroquine as a measure to fight #coronavirus.”

Also, the NCDC has told Nigerians to desist from taking self-medication for treatment of coronavirus as it may cause harm and lead to death.

The NCDC in its twitter handle on Friday said: “@WHO has NOT approved the use of chloroquine for #COVID19 management. Scientists are working hard to confirm the safety of several drugs for this disease.

“Please DO NOT engage in self-medication. This will cause harm and can lead to death.”

this people taking chloroquine already, did they test positive to coronavirus or are they trying to cure the sickness in advance?
If we approach this situation with panic, we'll suffer more than the worst hit countries.

Don't give room to panic. Allow medicals to do their work

Please write intelligently. Trump has nothing to do with the stupidity in Nigeria. Trump announced that a French study showed that Chloroquine appears to be effective against the novel virus.

My country people always sometimes do things in an upside manner. Why should you overdose chloroquine when you’re not even sure you have the virus.

I heard some people said using chloroquine can improve your immune system against the virus, it’s still speculations and not a certified method by WHO.

The government should sensitize people at this stage to stop the impending case of overdose. When it is certified by the WHO, then people can start consuming it.

Trump is neither here or there, his statements need to be revalidated multiple times coz he just speak his mind even when it’s crazy for a president to do so!

This is just dumb asf.

How can you take chloroquine if it isn't recommended to you by a doctor?

Did they assume it's just like vitamin C tablets?
