United States President, Donald Trump, has insisted that chloroquine is effective for the treatment of the dreaded coronavirus (COVID-19).

In a post on his Twitter page, Trump said the drug was potent and can be used to cure cases of the global pandemic.

He said: “HYDROXYCHLOROQUINE & AZITHROMYCIN (an antibiotic), taken together, have a real chance to be one of the biggest game-changers in the history of medicine.

“The American leader urged that they “be put in use IMMEDIATELY.”

“What do we have to lose?” he later said at a news conference at the White House.

In a statement, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration confirmed it has been working closely with government agencies and academic centres investigating the use of the drug.

It said they will jointly “determine whether it can be used to treat patients with mild-to-moderate Covid-19.”

Meanwhile, the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) on Sunday announced that three new cases of coronavirus (COVID-19) have been confirmed in Lagos State.

The NCDC confirmed the fresh cases in a post on its website.

“On the 22nd of March 2020, three new confirmed cases of COVID-19 were recorded in Nigeria. Till date, 25 cases have been confirmed, two cases have been discharged and there has been no death from COVID-19 in Nigeria

“All three new cases are in Lagos State. They are being treated at the Infectious Disease Hospital, Yaba,” the NCDC said.
