CoronaVirus is locking the whole world right from December as a pandemic. The World Health Organisation, as well as many Health Departments of many countries, are seriously in the drug developing process to cure the contagious novel CoronaVirus circling around since there is no medicine for it to date as per the therapists' world.
Trump's game-changer drug:
The American President Donald Trump has recently touted a statement as a CoVid-19 cure and the much-needed medication of this time increased the research as well as revolts all around. Yes, Trump's anecdotal suggestion of Chloroquine and Hydroxychloroquine last week gained attention from the drug therapist everywhere and many involved in trials to find the effectiveness. But Dr.Anthony Fauci, Head of National Institutes of Allergies & Infectious Diseases, immediately corrected the president's statement as an anecdote, and that was not based on clinical trials.
However, hearing the president describing Hydroxychloroquine drug as a game-changer, a couple from Arizona decided to self-medicate themselves from the contagious CoronaVirus and took a form of Chloroquine. But the man died, and the woman was hospitalized.
Besides all, Chloroquine and Hydroxychloroquine are two Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Antimalarial drugs which are highly prescribed during the times of malarial infection. But these drugs are not proven to cure the CoVid sustaining now and are highly used in the cure of rheumatoid arthritis as well as lupus worldwide as per WHO's approval.
Does Hydroxychloroquine treat CoVid-19?
Dr. Anthony Fauci also clarified several facts about whether Hydroxychloroquine treats the pandemic CoronaVirus or not. He clearly says 'No' for the self-medication using HydroxyChloroquine until the approval of the FDA and WHO since CoronaVirus is caused by a virus named SARS-CoV-2, and malaria is caused by a parasite called Plasmodium (malariae, falciparum, Ovale, and Vivax) via mosquitoes.
US President Donald Trump recently announced that Corona could be remedied if hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin were taken together. But the statement is not proven among the medical community as a cure against CoronaViruses and trials are undertaken for precaution.
Various parties who oppose Trump's announcement have accused the drug of not being scientifically proven to be a good remedy for Corona. Further, Various medical researchers claim that hydroxychloroquine is only used as a test for coronavirus prevention. However, Chloroquine and Hydroxychloroquine is not a proven treatment for the pandemic CoVid-19.
Meanwhile, the Central Government of India stated that it is necessary to regulate the sales and distribution of the hydroxychloroquine drug. It is necessary to prevent their misuse.
Chloroquines are just a suggestion for now. Not a cure.
