Coronavirus has caused COVID 19, which is a viral infection that started last year and has now become a pandemic. COVID has caused more fear than actual happenings by the deadly virus. Doctors have become a part of the stigma and many people are more afraid of going to a doctor. This is all mainly because of fear-mongering and less information around the disease. People are afraid that doctors and health line workers are more prone to this infection.

However, the information is not true, as most of the doctors take more time in their personal protection while they are against the COVID-19 patient.

Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) is a prescription medicine and its sale is totally prohibited without a valid prescription by a doctor.

Adequate quantities of HCQ have already been procured for the following categories, which means it cannot be used for general public usage and only for the below-mentioned categories.

  1. Patients who have been clinically advised
  2. Health workers at risk due to their direct contact with COVID-19 patients
  3. Household contacts of confirmed COVID-19 cases

Remember it’s harmful to consume HCQ without prescription as it may have adverse effects on your health. That means HCQ should be consumed without medical advice.

For information related to COVID-19 call the state helpline numbers or Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Government of India 24*7 helpline number 1075 (Toll-free)
