Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that as the world channels concentrated efforts against coronavirus crisis, WHO said it had finally halted hydroxychloroquine trial for Covid-19 treatment.
The global health agency made the declaration on Wednesday, June 17, in a tweet, saying the pill was not effective in treating the highly-ravaging infection.
The decision came in barely three weeks after the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) stopped the drug use.
WHO said findings had shown that the anti-malaria drug does not reduce the mortality rate of coronavirus.
"The Solidarity Trial’s hydroxychloroquine arm is being stopped, on the basis of evidence showing it does not reduce mortality for hospitalised #COVID19 patients," WHO said in a tweet on Wednesday.
