The National
March 22, 2020

Nigeria reported two cases of chloroquine poisoning after US President Donald Trump praised its sister drug as a treatment for the novel coronavirus.

Health officials are warning Nigerians against self-medicating after demand for the antimalarial medicine surged in Lagos, a city home to 20 million people.

Two people were admitted to hospital in Lagos for chloroquine overdoses, Oreoluwa Finnih, senior health assistant to the city’s governor, said in an interview.

“Please don’t panic,” she said by text message.

3. There's not much info at the link.

Such as, where did the chloroquine come from? Pharmacy? Street brew? Was it a doctor's prescription?

What was the recommended dosage for malaria? Is that what was taken? Or were ten or a hundred doses taken?

Taking drugs because somebody on TV praised them? Yes, that might be dangerous without supervision.

4. Nigeria Has Chloroquine Poisonings After Trump Praised Drug

Nigeria reported two cases of chloroquine poisoning after U.S. President Donald Trump praised the anti-malaria drug as a treatment for the novel coronavirus.

Health officials are warning Nigerians against self-medicating after demand for the drug surged in Lagos, a city that’s home to 20 million people. Two people were hospitalized in Lagos for chloroquine overdoses, Oreoluwa Finnih, senior health assistant to the governor of Lagos, said in an interview.

“Please don’t panic,” she said via text message. “Chloroquine is still in a testing phase in combination with other medication and not yet verified as a preventive treatment or curative option.”

. . .

The president doubled down on Saturday, telling his Twitter followers that hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin “taken together” could be “one of the biggest game changers in the history of medicine.” He urged they “be put in use IMMEDIATELY.”

6. People everywhere should avoid listening to Trump

Just listen to doctors and qualified medical professionals, not politicians, especially not some bloviating windbag with a history of spewing complete falsehoods.

14. You are so right

I can't believe the number of people on this site who watch the daily briefings. You can read about any useful info andhour later, and not have to suffer through it.

7. He's probably got stock in the companies that make the stuff.

Or he bought the companies as soon as he heard they might be of help. Why else would the crook-in-chief be hawking the stuff like a carnival barker?

8. Yep...coming to a magat household near you.

The magats are all about chloroquine on the internetssss and are rushing to find some...without professional medical guidance of course. A recipe for disaster or darwinian evolution at work. You be the judge.

9. Antimalarial Hoax: "A hoax is a falsehood deliberately fabricated to masquerade as the truth..."

"...hoax tends to indicate "relatively complex and large-scale fabrications" and includes deceptions that go beyond the merely playful and "cause material loss or harm to the victim.""

12. How many dead is the Holy Orange Cheesus responsible for now?

Americans, Syrians, Kurds, Immigrant children, and now Africans.

I hope the evil bitch starts rotting in hell very soon.

15. Parasite drugs for Virus?

Not sure of the diagnosis process , but I thought malaria was caused by a parasite or protozoa.

Isn't CoronaVirus...a Virus?

17. 45 is NOT a doctor

and as such cannot act like one, prescribe, advise,etc. the blood is on HIS hands and he should be personally sued by every person who takes his advice based on conspiracy thinking and ignorance. He is, Heaven help us, the President - and should NOT be speaking about medical issues about which he has absolutely no education or knowledge. He is getting his information from the National Enquirer for God's sake!

Someone must step up and put a stop to this - why are they letting him make statements that could literally kill people? At what point will the GOP finally realize that they are as guilty as he is, because they could have stopped him and would not do it.

greed, power, racism - this is the GOP. And it is going to get people KILLED as if they held the gun.

Acting President Joe Biden - please get out there and lead us. We need a consistent voice of reason and point of light to focus on.

Everyone, enjoy your family time or if you are alone, use it for introspection, study, reading, self-improvement. Whatever we can do to add to the light we should do because only by adding to the light will we be able to overcome this darkness.

embrace your space

19. When you listen to someone who is NOT medical personnel for medical advice,

that is what happens. Give it to that fucking prince of yours who keeps trying to get people's little tiny tad bit of money left over after our government took away the rest to do nothing in return but use it on their own stock portfolios.

21. I took Cloroquine for autoimmune disease.

The treatment was almost as bad as the disease. Nausea, headache, and my eyes burned constantly. Initially I had bloodwork weekly as we adjusted the dosage, tapering down to once a month. I can’t imagine someone taking it without a doctors supervision.
