The use of Chloroquine has been ordered for the treatment for COVID-19 in Bauchi state. The Governor of Bauchi state, Bala Mohammed once tested positive for the virus and he recovered after he was isolated and treated.
In a brief conference where he was addressing the fight against the deadly virus, he said he was treated with “chloroquine and Zithromax” and that he is fully ready for the aftermath if anything goes wrong with the approval of the drug for use in Bauchi state.
“Our medical team is using their own ingenuity to use chloroquine and Zithromax to treat the patients, even though in some places, they said it is against the protocol.
“As the governor, I’m taking responsibility for that because I don’t want anyone to die.
“I have given you the directive that you must use something that I have used to get well, just as you have used for all other cases that got well.
“Rather than saying that something is harmful, we should not follow what the white people are saying by not taking anything and die.
“We are used to taking chloroquine in Nigeria. We are going to use them. We have taken responsibility and I have taken responsibility.
“Zithromax and chloroquine are not harmful to our body, our physiological system has adapted to it. If you are having a fever you take chloroquine.”
He also added that the drug he treated as stated above has been in use for the treatment of disease caused by Coronavirus and that is why they have not recorded any death in Bauchi state.
