Following the announcement that Chloroquine, an anti-malaria drug, has a curative effect on the deadly coronavirus, Nigerians have taken to their Twitter handle to react.
Some in their reactions have pointed out that the drug could also be a cure for corruption- a slight dig at Ibrahim Magu, EFCC acting chairman who said corruption was caused by a coronavirus.
Others expressed a hilarious view by stating that no wonder the disease could not make it to Nigeria because of the amount of Chloroquine in the system of an average Nigerian.
What Nigerians are saying:
Chloroquine cures Cononavirus!! Unbelievable!! If what I am hearing is true 🤗 we are finally safe in Nigeria!! They kinda sound alike sef

Chloroquine as the anti-viral drug for coronavirus isn’t too shocking, really. I mean it wasn’t bitter for nothing. Even coronavirus couldn’t stand it.
All Hail the good ol’ Chloroquine
