The federal government yesterday pleaded with COVID-19 survivors to stop revealing details of the medication used for their treatment to discourage self-medication.
The Chairman, Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, Mr. Boss Mustapha congratulates and appreciates the testimonies of Nigerians who have recovered from COVID-19, which has given us more insights and further strengthens the need to adhere strictly to guidelines issued.
However, an emerging issue from all these testimonies is the issue of prescription for treatments.
We should always remember that the symptoms of COVID-19 mimic some illnesses we already know but treating the symptoms is not the same as treating the virus.
For this reason, we strongly discourage self-medication,” Mustapha said.
