Coronavirus: No proof of chloroquine’s effectiveness in treating disease ― WHO

Dr Matshidiso Moeti has said there has been no proof of chloroquine’s effectiveness in treating the disease.

World Health Organisation (WHO) Regional Director for Africa, Dr Matshidiso Moeti, said this on Thursday during an online media briefing.

According to her: “We are aware of some trials of the use of chloroquine in dealing with some previous coronaviruses, not this virus.

“We are not aware of any evidence that demonstrates that this is one of the medicines that could be used but we can find out some more information about that.

“There is a number of ongoing trials of other medicines and we are awaiting the outcomes of those observations. But for now, we are not aware of any conclusive evidence to show that chloroquine could be effective in treating this virus.”

  1. Hello there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which
    blog platform are you using for this website? I’m getting tired of
    Wordpress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m
    looking at alternatives for another platform.
    I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  2. I’m not sure why but this site is loading very
    slow for me. Is anyone else having this problem or is it a
    problem on my end? I’ll check back later and see if the
    problem still exists.
