It is interesting to know that Chloroquine phosphate that used to itch our body back in those days, has proven effective in treating coronavirus #COVID19 and shows positive clinical effects. The stone that the builders rejected has now become the cornerstone.

Lol. It has been revealed that Chloroquine cures Corona virus and now It all makes sense why no African died of the disease.
Nigerian hospitals used to give us that drug like candy, growing up. If you search our systems, I’m sure you’d still find remnants of the drug inside. 😂

My fear is that Nigerians are about to abuse Chloroquine
One person said: “Chloroquine can cure everything”
The drug will still need to pass further trials before it can be said to cure “the coronavirus”
For now, let’s be glad that something seems to be working against it.
