Medicines regulator warns consumers not to use malaria drug for Covid-19
SA’s medicines regulator has warned consumers to stop buying an antimalaria drug in anticipation of Covid-19 infection, saying there is no evidence that it combats the coronavirus.
The regulator also said stockpiling the drug could deprive patients in dire need of the product. The call comes as the number of confirmed cases of Covid-19 in SA reached 554 on Monday, and the global tally soared past 395,000. ..
