Governor, Bala Mohammed of Bauchi State has maintained his stand inauthorising health workers to chloroquine in treatment of COVID-19 despite arguments that such authorisations are exclusively reserved for professional medical personnel.

  The governor who said he had no regrets in telling his health officials to treat COVID-19 patients with Chloroquine, stated that as the index case of COVID-19 in Bauchi, chief amongst the medications that got him well were Chloroquine, Zithromax and Vitamin C, adding that he would rather ask medics managing the state’s COVID-19 patients to treat them with chloroquine and Zithromax than watch them die of the disease.

  Recall that the National Agency for Food Administration and Control (NAFDAC) last week, in a tacit reaction to the governor’s directive, warned Nigerians not to use any drugs for the treatment of COVID-19 other than what the NCDC approves.
