The drug which was titled as “game-changer” by President Trump, has been banned for export by the indian government. The drug is said to have the potential to cure corona in India.
This action was taken after Trump’s decision of“retaliation”, if Indian authorities did not dispose of the ban on the export of hydroxychloroquine. Trump has acclaimed that the drug has a possibility to treat the coronavirus irrespective of the fact that it’s not proven yet.
India is among the largest manufacturers of hydroxychloroquine in the world. But now it’s far unclear how much will be exported. Anurag Srivastava (spokesperson),the ministry of external affairs stated in one of his statements that: “the stock function could permit our businesses to meet the export commitments that they had contracted”.
Why Did it All Start Between India And The US?
According to the New York Times, the United States President Trump owes a personal monetary hobby to Sanofi; a french drugmaker which makes the brand-name model of hydroxychloroquine. It all started the day after India banned the exports of the drug, on April 5 President Trump invited Prime Minister Narendra Modi for a meeting
On 6th April, the day after the meeting, WHO reported 3981 active cases and 114 deaths of coronavirus in India. The next day the local media requested the authorities to take necessary action on the request of USA President Donald Trump.
Following this, President Trump said in a press conference, that “he did not like the decision on banning the export of the drug by Indian government”.
India’s trendy announcement says: apart from “countries badly affected by the virus” it will deliver the drug to the neighboring countries in an appropriate handiest quantity as the gesture of humanity.
What is Hydroxychloroquine?
Wikipedia says; hydroxychloroquine is a remedy used to save you and deal with malaria, in areas sensitive to chloroquine. Other uses include the remedy of rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and porphyria cutanea tarda. It also deals with other illnesses that have attracted attention during the last few years .
President Trump stated that the drug was approved by FDA( US meals and drug administration) and heals the coronavirus infection, however, this assertion is then denied by the FBA itself.
Later on, the drug was approved by the FBA for compassionate use only, because of this: a medical doctor can use the drug on the patient only in a life-threatening condition.
In India, hydroxychloroquine can be used in hospitals as it is fairly inexpensive and affordable. But it’s purchase and use had been restricted the day it is said: corona in India can be cured through it.
Can This Drug Cure Corona in India?
In lab research, the chloroquine drug seems to dam the coronavirus. Some unscientific evidence by the doctors also said that it seems to be damming.
James Gallagher, BBC health correspondent says: until now there had been no entire clinical assessments of this drug on actual sufferers which is an important project to do. Although many countries like China, the United States, and Spain are working on this project.
Dr. Joyeeta Basu, a senior medical doctor in India, in an interview with the BBC, stated that: if this drug works to cure the corona in India, then it will certainly have a modest effect on sufferers at its best.
Despite the truth that the trail has not been started yet at a professional level, people have started to self medicate, which so often ended in negative results for them. A research in Telangana (where a recently sanitized tunnel is installed) also says that: many human beings were poisoned from the overdose of this drug.
