A Twitter user has sparked outrage on the platform after he shared a pack of Hydroxychloroquine sulfate and claimed it was sold for ₦50,000 in a Port Harcourt Pharmacy.
Recall that the drug became highly sort after a Nigerian-trained US-based medical doctor said she has used a combination of hydroxychloroquine, zinc, and Zithromax to treat over 350 Covid-19 patients and none died.
The doctor’s claim has been highly disputed but the demand for the drug has skyrocketed and this has made it expensive.
There are claims that a pharmacy in Port Harcourt is selling a packet of Hydroxychloroquine sulfate, containing 60 tablets, for ₦50,000 and Nigerians are shocked.
