@iSlimfit: Who would have ever thought that Chloroquine, of all drugs, would be the anti-viral drug for Coronavirus. Those medical researchers deserve a medal.

@Harri_Obi: Lol. It has been revealed that Chloroquine cures Coronavirus and now It all makes sense why no African died of the disease.

– Nigerian hospitals used to give us that drug-like candy, growing up. If you search our systems, I’m sure you’d still find remnants of the drug inside.
