Coronavirus gave a massive shock to the world resulting in immediate lockdowns and an escalating number of deaths. The researches and tests are being done under immense pressure as the pandemic has shown no mercy! Different suggestions are popping out from almost every country to combat the COVID-19 upshot. However, recently U.S. president, Mr Donanld Trump addressed the world where he explicitly mentioned that Hydroxychloroquine can be a huge relief for the patients of COVID-19. He also brought up the need for more hydroxychloroquine pills and implored India to export Hydroxychloroquine to the U.S. as India is a huge country and produces such medicines in a massive quantity. This does not signify that the U.S has a negligible possession of these tablets since the country has ordered Hydroxychloroquine tablets from around the world and many countries are sending them the tablets too! That being said, India can be a strong support to the U.S as it is a great producer of such medicines. Right now, India’s production capacity is a whopping 20 crore tablets every month.
DOES HYDROXYCHLOROQUINE CURE COVID-19?
Well, as mentioned earlier, this medicine is just being considered as a “relief” for the COVID-19 patients and not a cure! Hydroxychloroquine is just a less-toxic version of CHLOROQUINE, which is a malaria drug and is used worldwide.
(DO NOT TAKE ANY MEDICATION WITHOUT CONSULTING THE DOCTORS, THESE DRUGS ARE BEING “CONSIDERED”, THE VACCINE IS YET TO BE FORMULATED!!)
This drug came into limelight, after Donald Trump’s Tweet on 21st of march about the use of a combination of “Hydroxychloroquine and Azithromycin”. According to him, this concoction could be a game-changer in the history of medicine!
However, the danger has to be highlighted, as many reports have confirmed that Hydroxychloroquine medicine can not be used without a doctor’s prescription and special emphasis has to laid on this fact again and again!
