The Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 has affirmed that the World Health Organization has resumed its use of Hydroxychloroquine in the fight against COVID-19.
This was confirmed by the Chairman of the Committee and Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, during the PTF’s briefing today.
The PTF Chairman warned however, that Nigerians must desist from rushing to buy the drug in a bid to self medicate.
The Secretary General assured that the PTF will continue to monitor situations across the country and stressed that the committee will not hesitate to review its decisions if need be.
He urged members of the public to cooperate with the government and health authorities when it comes to contact tracing.
