Amid this, all over the world an untested drug with no significant data has been released and circulated by the government for treating and is very famously known as chloroquine or hydroxychloroquine which is not only used in the treatment of malaria but also its substitute used for psoriatic arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, etc. I am shortlisting the problems which can be aggravated with these medicines and hence the one who is treating and the one who is getting treated should know that they are sitting in front of a double-edged sword.
