Drug advisory stuns doctors

The Telegraph

India's health research agency on Friday recommended that healthcare workers in all hospitals take hydroxychloroquine as a shield against the novel coronavirus, defying calls for caution from doctors and disregarding evidence that the anti-malarial drug does not work against Covid-19.

The Indian Council of Medical Research had earlier recommended this drug for healthcare workers at Covid-19 hospitals and the household contacts of coronavirus patients. It has now expanded the recommendation to include healthcare workers in all hospitals and paramilitary and police personnel on Covid-19 duty.
