Lagos granted clinical trial permission for virus cure

 

 

Lagos State has been granted permission to commence clinical trials of a combination of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) and Azithromycin for the treatment of the dreaded coronavirus that is currently burning through human populations around the world.

The federal government was said to have been impressed with the state government and consequently decided to grant the approval for clinical trials of the drugs for treatment of the virus.

This is seen as a major step forward towards the usage of the drugs but it is not certain yet how the trials would pan out as French researchers had announced last week that a combination of both drugs was effective 100 percent cure in treating Covid-19 patients.

The Federal Government through NAFDAC and the Ministry of Health granted the permission.
