WHO banned hydroxy chloroquine again, know what was the reason behind it


Geneva, Reuters. The World Health Organization, the World Health Organization, has prohibited the administration of coronation doses of the malaria drugs Hydroxychloroquine and the HIV drugs Lopinavir and Ritonavir to the corona patients. WHO says that this drug is not reducing mortality. The use of these two drugs in a statement by the WHO has revealed that there is a slight or negligible reduction in the mortality rate of corona patients compared to other standards of treatment.

The WHO said that it has been decided to ban the use of these drugs on the recommendation of the international body monitoring drug testing. Recently, the US National Institutes of Health (NIH) put a stop to ongoing clinical trials to evaluate the effectiveness of the anti-malarial drug Hydroxychloroquine for the treatment of corona patients. The statement issued by NIH said that this drug is not very beneficial for hospitalized corona virus patients.

Recently, the UK's Medical Regulatory Agency had given permission to restore trials of hydroxy chloroquine to treat corona patients. The test will see whether health workers are protected against corona virus infection by taking the drug. Let us know that the UK drug and health care products regulatory agency had stopped the testing of this drug after a research release in the prestigious magazine Lancet last month.

The anti-malarial drug hydroxy chloroquine came into the limelight when US President Donald Trump said the drug was effective on corona patients and could prove to be a game changer. The medical journal Lancet Journal recently published a report on hydroxy chloroquine stating that the drug (HCQ, Hydroxychloroquine) is not effective on corona infected patients. However the Lancet Journal later retracted from its report.
