TNW, March 23. The National Task force for COVID-19 Constituted by Indian Council of Medical Research has approved the use of Hydroxyl- Chloroquine as preventive medicine for health-care workers and for people who are looking after the Corona infected patient from close proximity.

The advisory contained detailed information of eligibility, doses, contradictions and other considerations for its uses.
