COVID-19: Reactions As Pharmacy Sells Hydroxychloroquine Pack For N50,000



Social media apps most especially Twitter has been greeted with a barrage of reactions after a Nigerian netizen shares a pack of Hydroxychloroquine sulfate he bought at the sum of N50,000 Naira at a Pharmacy in Port Harcourt, the capital city of Cross Rivers.

Nigerians, as usual, are known to always lookout for ways to make gains for themselves even out of unpleasant situations, Naija News observed.

Naija News reported earlier that a Nigerian-trained US-based medical doctor, Dr Stella Emmanuel, has revealed the cure to Coronavirus pandemic which has led to the death of thousands all over the world.

According to the physician, while speaking at a news conference organized by a group of American doctors under the aegis of “America’s Frontline Doctors” in Washington about a week ago, hydroxychloroquine, zinc, and Zithromax were effective cures for the novel virus which has brought countries of the world to its knees.

Demand for the drug has, however, became high since Emmanuel made her submission, despite disagreement by some people also in the know.

The report which claimed that a pharmacy in Port Harcourt is selling a packet of the Hydroxychloroquine sulfate in such a huge amount has, however, stirred up reactions among netizens as some Nigerians consider it a joke.

See below some of the reactions;

“They’ve moved from hand sanitizers, gloves and facemasks/face shields to this. SMH. They will end up eating it when there’s no demand. 50k ko, 100mil ni,” asked Angela Esugo [@DrAngie_babe] who recalled the experience with Hand Sanitizer when the dreaded disease first entered into the country.

Another social media user, Joseph Olusanya [@The_UncleJoe] who was shocked of the said amount tweeted; “N50k for 60 tabs? Even if this life balance ehn, this country no go still balance.”

Others not sure of the development, called for some investigation to confirm if the pharmacy truly exists in PortHarcout as claimed by the poster.

Meanwhile, Naija News reported earlier that a 43-year-old Kano State indigene, Idris Dangana, has invented a cancer-detecting brassier to help and save the lives of more women from dying.
