Bauchi State approves use of Chloroquine for COVID-19 treatment

Bauchi State Governor Bala Mohammed has authorised the use of Chloroquine to treat COVID-19.

He offered to take responsibility for any consequence of approving such drugs.

The governor, who was the COVID-19 index case in the state, said he was treated with “chloroquine and Zithromax.”

He spoke while giving an update on COVID-19 in the state at the Government House, Bauchi.

Mohammed said: “Our medical team is using their own ingenuity to use chloroquine and Zithromax to treat the patients, even though in some places, they said it is against the protocol.

“As the governor, I’m taking responsibility for that because I don’t want anyone to die.”

He added: “I have given you the directive that you must use something that I have used to get well, just as you have used for all other cases that got well.

“Rather than saying that something is harmful, we should not follow what the white people are saying by not taking anything and die.


“We are used to taking chloroquine in Nigeria. We are going to use them. We have taken responsibility and I have taken responsibility.

“Zithromax and chloroquine are not harmful to our body, our physiological system has adapted to it. If you are having a fever you take chloroquine.”
