BREAKING: WHO Suspends Clinical Trial of COVID-19 Drugs

The World Health Organisation (WHO) has suspended the clinical trials of hydroxychloroquine as a potential treatment for coronavirus (COVID-19).

Naija News reports that the COVID-19 drugs trial is being carried out across a range of countries.

WHO took the decision after last week publication of a study in the Lancet indicating that using the drug on COVID-19 patients could increase their likelihood of dying.

This was made known by the Director-General of WHO, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus during a virtual press conference.

He stated that the WHO-backed trials had been “suspended while the safety is reviewed.”
