The Egyptian Minister of Health, Hala Zayed, announced on Saturday evening that the controversial drug “hydroxychloroquine” has achieved tremendous results in treating coronary patients in the country.
The Egyptian minister stated, during televised comments, that the drug “Hydroxychloroquine” was placed in the treatment protocol for people with coronavirus from the first day.
She said: “We put him in treatment from the first day, and all the cases that were treated with him recovered greatly, and achieved great results in Egypt.”
“When some research papers appeared demanding not to use it, we insisted on using it because we have scientific research evidence and reports that talk about its importance. And the research papers that criticized it receded and talked about its importance.”
It is reported that a medical study reported that the malaria drug promoted by US President Donald Trump as a treatment for Covid-19 is not effective in preventing infection in people who have been exposed to the Coronavirus.
Earlier, the Egyptian Ministry of Health announced the registration of 1497 new cases that proved positive for its laboratory analyzes of the virus, as part of the ministry’s surveillance and investigation procedures, according to the guidelines of the World Health Organization, pointing to the death of 32 new cases.
