Nigerians have expressed shock and disappointment after a pharmacy started selling Hydroxychloroquine sulfate for N50,000.
Nigerians have raised alarm after a Twitter user shared a pack of Hydroxychloroquine sulfate and claimed it was sold for ₦50,000 at a Port Harcourt Pharmacy.
The hike it is believed comes 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.
The claim that a pharmacy in Port Harcourt is selling a packet of Hydroxychloroquine sulfate, containing 60 tablets, for ₦50,000 has left many people in shock.
