Tunisia came at the forefront of those countries that brought chloroquine from the Kingdom of Jordan, where King Abdullah II sent a plane loaded with this drug, for the Tunisian medical laboratories to work on.
The Moroccan government has also authorized the use of the drug "chloroquine" and "hydroxy chloroquine" in the treatment of people infected with the "Corona virus", after it proved its great effectiveness, according to a document issued by the Moroccan Ministry of Health.
The decision came after an agreement between the Moroccan Ministry of Health and the technical and scientific committee of the national program for the prevention and control of influenza in the Kingdom.
The Moroccan government has started working to provide these drugs, and to adopt strict measures for their use, for the benefit of people with coronavirus infection, according to the official document circulated by the Moroccan media.
The Moroccan document indicated that the effectiveness of the drug has been proven by a number of national and foreign studies, confirming that this encouraged the competent Moroccan authorities to authorize its use.
The Moroccan government added that the Ministry of Health received, earlier, all the stocks of the drug from the company "Sanofi" Morocco in Casablanca a few days ago. In the midst of the journey to search for an actual drug to treat the Corona virus, 5 of those infected with HIV in Morocco recovered from the 143 confirmed cases recorded by Morocco, according to the latest statistics issued by the official authorities in Morocco.
