The World Health Organization (WHO) has halted the trial of the malaria drug hydroxychloroquine for the treatment of coronavirus due to safety concerns. News agency AFP has reported about this.

The World Health Organization said on Monday that it has temporarily closed the clinical trial of hydroxychloroquine to treat corona virus as a precaution.

The organization has taken this decision after the report of a study published in Lancet last week. It was said in the report that the use of this drug increases the chances of death of corona patients. The WHO chief gave this information at a virtual press conference.

ICMR, India’s top health research institution, is also considering reviewing its recommendations for the use of hydroxy chloroquine (HCQ) in the treatment of corona virus-infected patients. This is being done after doubts arising about the effective potency of the medicine. Asked whether the government is planning to remove HCQ as a precautionary medicine from the medical scheme.
