President Donald Trump approves chloroquine for coronavirus treatment in US



President Donald Trump has just approved the use of chloroquine for the treatment of the coronavirus.
Mr Trump in a statement to journalists at the White House on Thursday said that:
“It’s been around for a long time, so we know if things don’t go as planned, it’s not going to killing anybody”
The said Chloroquine has been in use for decades, this was used for the treatment of malaria. Though it was phased out for malaria treatment after researchers revealed that the disease was becoming too resistant to the drug.

In China, doctors had earlier reported using chloroquine for successful coronavirus treatment, although, the World Health Organisation (WHO) has expressed doubt on its efficacy saying more research was needed to make final conclusions.

US has since reported over 9,000 cases of coronavirus with over 150 deaths.
