Health officials warn against the use of chloroquine phosphate, or anything a health care provider does not prescribe

ALERT: Do not use chloroquine phosphate, or anything a health care provider does not prescribe, as a COVID-19 remedy. It could kill you.

Summary
Chloroquine phosphate, when used without a prescription and supervision of a healthcare provider, can cause serious health consequences, including death. Clinicians and public health officials should discourage the public from misusing non-pharmaceutical chloroquine phosphate (a chemical used in home aquariums). Clinicians should advise patients and the public that chloroquine, and the related compound hydroxychloroquine, should be used only under the supervision of a healthcare provider as prescribed medications.
