The Ministry of Health announced on Tuesday that drugs based on chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine are again available in pharmacies, in sufficient quantities, from June 1, 2021.
It should be noted that at the start of the pandemic, it was decided, as a preventive measure, to reserve the use of these drugs for prose in charge of advanced cases of coronavirus.
However, notes the ministry, and in view of the progress of the vaccination operation, and the adhesion of all citizens to this national immunization campaign, the department of Ait Taleb considered it appropriate to authorize the return of these drugs to pharmacies, while monitoring stocks and flow levels.
Medicines containing chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine are prescribed by doctor for people with chronic diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus erythematosus and malaria.
