Happy that WHO resumed trials of HCQ: CISR

World Health Organisation (WHO) has resumed trials of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ).

Speaking on it, Director General of Council of Scientific an Industrial Research (CSIR), Dr. Shekhar C Mande said, "We are happy that the WHO resumed trials of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ).

I firmly believe that the WHO's decision was taken in haste.

It was a kind of knee-jerk reaction.

They should have analysed the data on their own before temporarily suspending trials."
