Former Senior Special Assistant to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, on Public Affairs, Dr. Doyin Okupe has revealed the drugs used for his treatment while he battled COVID-19 infection.
Recall that Dr. Okupe had announced on his Facebook page days back that on the 23rd of April, he and his wife, Aduralere tested positive to COVID-19 and that on the same day, they were moved to the isolation centre in Sagamu.
The couple survived the deadly Coronavirus disease and later were discharged after spending about two weeks at the isolation centre.
However, Okupe has given an update on his recovery on his Twitter page. He went ahead to disclose the actual drugs used in curing him of the virus infection.
He tweeted: “My medications for Covid-19. Hydroxychloroquine 400mg twice daily for 2days then 400mg daily for 3days.
“Azithromycin 500mg fly, Zinc sulphate 100mg dly. VitzC 1200mg daily.”
He added that “I supported with a mixture of ginger, garlic, tumeric and lemon.
“There is no global consensus among the scientists or medical experts on any one treatment regime. No credible scientific research document is presently available or acceptable for treatment of COVID-19.
“Key factor is the immune status of the patient. Boost your immunity with known supplements

He went further to warn against self-medication saying; “If you must take hydroxychloroquine, please speak to your doctor to confirm if you have any cardiac ARRHYTHMIAS. If you do, you need close monitoring before embarking on the use of these drugs. Note that 90% to 95% of all infected patients will go through even without hospitalization. 90% of young people will survive attack.”
