Bauchi State Governor, Bala Mohammed, said Wednesday he had not encouraged self-medication by COVID-19 patients despite revealing the drugs he used during his treatment.
Mohammad had said last month the state’s medical team administered chloroquine and Zithromax on him during his treatment for COVID-19.
The governor, who tested positive for the disease in March, stated this while giving an update on the pandemic situation in the state.
He said: “I was a COVID-19 patient; I told the world and I have been asked to say how I got cured and I told them how I got cured.
“I recommended that should be done to other patients too; I have no apology for saying that I used chloroquine, Zithromax, zinc, iron, and vitamin C to get cured.
“However, it was God that cured me and to me, it is better to take something rather than sit down and die.
“If you have symptoms of fever, you can take chloroquine to cure it; if you have symptoms of infection, you can take Zithromax to cure it.
“You do not need a doctor, but the doctors are prescribing; I didn’t take these things on my own and I’m not recommending that people should go and use these without the recommendation of their case managers.”
