The World Health Organisation suspended testing of hydroxychloroquine as a possible Covid-19 treatment. 

A study suggested the drug could cause heart problems in patients and increase the risk of death. 

Tablets containing chloroquine have long been used in the treatment of malaria to reduce fever and inflammation, and the hope is that they can also work against the virus that causes Covid-19.

There are ongoing trials in various countries on using the drugs to prevent the illness. As part of these studies, frontline workers who are highly exposed to the virus are taking it as a prophylactic. 

A trial has begun across Europe, Africa, Asia and South America, testing 40,000 people with either hydroxychloroquine, chloroquine or a placebo to see if it’s effective on those who might be exposed to the virus.
