Pharmacies will be re-supplied as of June 1 with sufficient quantities of essential medicines based on chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine, the Health Ministry announced on Tuesday.

As part of the concern of the Health Ministry to ensure basic health services and treatment for patients, it was decided to re-supply, as of Tuesday, June 1st, 2021, pharmacies with sufficient quantities of essential medicines based on chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine, said the ministry in a press release.

The ministry recalled that, in accordance with the preventive measures taken against Covid-19, only hospitals were supplied with these essential medicines to treat patients of the new coronavirus.

Given the success of the vaccination campaign and the enthusiasm of Moroccan citizens for the anti-Covid19 vaccine, the Health Ministry has decided to re-supply pharmacies with sufficient quantities of these essential medicines, with the obligation of a rigorous monitoring and control of the national stock and the degree of use, said the same source.

These medicines will be delivered only on prescription given to patients suffering from rheumatoid arthritis, lupus erythematosus and malaria, said the ministry, calling on these patients to respect health measures and to follow the advice of doctors and pharmacists.
