World’s main health regulatory organisation has finally halted the clinical trials of hydroxychloroquine.

Naija News Understands that hydroxychloroquine which is perceived as a potential treatment for coronavirus (COVID-19)  was stopped with the view that the drug has no meaning full impact on the virus.

World Health Organization (WHO) revealed that several studies have indicated that Hydroxychloroquine (an anti-malaria drug) has no impact whatsoever on the virus, and does not result in the reduction of mortality of hospitalised COVID-19 patients.

This is coming days after U.S Food and Drug Administration (FDA) revoked the emergency authorisation for Hydroxychloroquine to treat hospitalized COVID-19 patients, amidst several pieces of evidence that it could cause serious side-effects, and that it does not work.

The WHO made this known via the tweet below:
