Combination of two drugs to have better results in treating corona patients: Dr Ata
ISLAMABAD: Chairman of Task Force of Pakistan Science and Technology Dr Ata ur Rehman on Sunday said the combination of anti-malarial and Erythromycin drugs tried by the Pakistani doctors in treating the coronavirus patients would have better results.
The Americans had tested Hydroxychloroquine in treating the coronavirus patients with no success, while the clinical trial of combination of Hydroxychloroquine and Erthromycine in Lahore and Karachi would hopefully produce positive results, he said while talking to PTV.
Chairman of Task Force of Pakistan Science and Technology Dr Ata ur Rehman said the combination of two drugs was being tested on some 1,100 COVID-19 patients under the supervision of University of Health Sciences (UHS) to check their effectiveness. “Our scientists, experts and pathologists are working with different approaches” in their research on the coronavirus treatment, he added. - APP
