FG Reveals Drug Used For Treating COVID 19 Patients In Nigeria...

The Minister of Health, Osagie Ehanire, has revealed the drug used in treating COVID-19 patients in Nigeria.





Ehanire during a press briefing on Tuesday said Nigeria has started using Remdesivir.

Remdesivir is an antiretroviral drug, in managing COVID-19 patients.

“We have been using that (Remdesivir); we have tried that in Lagos too,” he said.So, we have tried the antiretroviral drug to see what effect it has.”

He added that Nigeria has moved from disease importation to community spread.

Recall that the US had approved emergency use of Remdesivir, for treatment of the disease.

The US National Institute of Health had said the drug proved effective against the new coronavirus disease.

    1. This drug was made specifically for Ebola but did not work. Somehow, they decided to try it on some patients and it worked Ian’s it is now widely used in hospitals across the United States.

  29. A doctor I know gave a lecture sometime last month(zoom meeting) on COVID-19, and he was asked the drugs the use in treating the COVID-19 patients, and he said it is one of the antiretroviral drug.

    When pressed to mention which one exactly, he refuse to say because in his words"i don't want to be quoted anywhere "

    For some of us thinking the copied from US, it is not true
