It is noteworthy that the drug “Hydroxychloroquine” was officially approved in 1950 to treat and stop malaria, and it’s also wont to treat autoimmune diseases like arthritis and lupus.
The drug is described as having high safety ingredients and is certified by the World Health Organization and the US Center for Disease Control and Prevention.
With the spread of the Coronavirus, several studies have been conducted in France, China, South Korea and the United States, examining the possibility of treatment of the emerging epidemic.
Last February, a study by doctors from the Chinese Academy of Sciences showed the drug succeeded in stopping the spread of the new corona virus in human cells.
The Chinese study, followed by another French, at the University Hospital Institute in Marseille, confirmed that all those infected with the Coronavirus had recovered after being treated for six consecutive days with the drug “hydroxychloroquine” and the antibiotic “azithromycin“.
As “hydroxychloroquine” prevents the reproduction of the virus in the human body, and works to reduce the viral infection to end it in Corona patients.
Several countries have taken a decision to start clinical trials to treat a number of people infected with Coronavirus with this drug, but they remain experiments to confirm its effectiveness in terms of detection and side effects.
Although the drug treats malaria and other diseases, it has several side effects, including headache, dizziness, nausea, and rash, in addition to other complications, such as blurred vision, hearing difficulty, and muscle weakness.
