Stop revealing details of drugs used for your treatment – FG warns COVID19 survivors

The Federal Government on Friday, May 15, pleaded with COVID19 survivors to stop giving details of the drugs used for their treatment to discourage self-medication.

The Chairman, Presidential Task Force on COVID19, Mr. Boss Mustapha, made the plea at a press briefing in Abuja, following recent video testimonies of some high profile survivors, talking about the drugs administered on them at the treatment centres.

Mustapha, who is also the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, expressed concern that some of the testimonies disclosing the prescription for treatment of the virus could encourage patients to indulge in self-medication instead of seeking help from health authorities.

He urged all Nigerians that have symptoms of COVID19 to test for the virus and, if positive, go into the isolation centres for care by experts.

Mustapha said: “The PTF congratulates and appreciates the testimonies of Nigerians who have recovered from COVID19, 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 COVID19 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.”

He also said that five states in Nigeria were currently participating in the on-going World Health Organization (WHO)-coordinated solidarity trial to find a cure for the pandemic, saying that at the end of this trial, relevant health authorities would make statements on acceptable drugs for treating COVID-19.
