There have been conversations across the globe on whether or not hydroxychloroquine should be used in the treatment of COVID -19 infection.

But the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control says the use of hydroxychloroquine in the country is only limited to clinical trials.

The agency made this known after a US-based Nigerian doctor, Dr. Stella Emmanuel, claimed in a viral video that she had treated over 350 COVID-19 patients with a medication combination of Hydrochloroquine, zinc and Zithromax.
