According to reports, the couple in both their sixties, ingested chloroquine phosphate, and the additive commonly used at aquariums to clean fish tanks made their bodies react, moments later.

Most patients who become infected with COVID-19 will only require symptomatic care and self-isolation to prevent the risk of infecting others, Brooks said. Check first with a primary care physician.

Banner Health advised medicos not to prescribe chloroquine to patients who aren't hospitalised. During the study, those who received conventional treatment received antivirals that are now recommended for use in China, including Iopinavir and ritonavir, and after one week, 13 of the 15 control patients showed no signs of the virus, while 14 of the 15 who were treated with hydroxychloroquine showed the same.

One of the difficulties facing American investors during the COVID-19 outbreak is separating fact from fiction, rumor from truth and speculation from confirmation.
