The World Health Organization declared a pandemic against COVID-19 on the 11th of March 2020 after observing an upward trend of spread and severity of the virus globally. Scientists have been racing to create a vaccine that can protect the people of the world against this potentially-fatal respiratory virus. For those who have unfortunately been stricken by this virus, scientists and doctors are working around the clock to look for a cure. The drug Chloroquine was then introduced to the whole world as THE drug by the President of the United States of America, Donald Trump in his press conference following the uprising of COVID-19 cases in the USA. Following this, a couple in Arizona took matters into their own hands and self-medicated with chloroquine phosphate, which they had on hand to kill parasites in their fish. Sadly, the husband died and the wife was hospitalised after taking treatment advice based on anecdotes which were not proven by clinical trials. Hence, the question at hand is: Is Chloroquine an effective drug against COVID-19?
