PIL KINA OR MEDICINE KINA SAFE, KAN IN CONSUMPTION WITHOUT RECIPES DOCTORS?

And is it safe if consumed for people who are not exposed to the covid 19 virus? because I read a few articles he said the drug can prevent or treat vicur covid 19. Is it safe? and can be consumed by healthy people?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Until now there has not been found any drug that can treat or prevent corona virus infection. Vaccines for this virus have also not been found. Quinine or chloroquine is a drug that was used to treat malaria. This drug is indeed one of the drugs currently being studied to help treat (not to prevent) corona virus infection. However, research is still ongoing and has not shown specific results, so it has not yet been approved to be a treatment for COVID-19 (a disease caused by corona virus infection).
Therefore, you are strongly discouraged from taking this drug in order to prevent corona virus infection. This drug is classified as hard drugs which also have many potentially dangerous side effects if not used properly. To prevent corona virus infection, you are advised to stay at home and not leave the house if you do not really have to. Some other recommended prevention methods are:
Wash your hands frequently with soap (washing hands for at least 20 seconds) in the right way. If hand washing and soap are not available, use hand sanitizers with a minimum of 60% alcohol content Avoid going to crowded and crowded places, you should also avoid using public transportation if you are forced to leave home Keep a safe distance from others, at least 1.8-2 meters, also avoid direct contact such as shaking hands with others. Masks are only recommended for use by people who are sick, people who care for the sick, or health workers when treating sick people. Therefore, do not use a mask if you are healthy or hoard a mask in your home. Maintain your immune system by sleeping and resting enough, eating enough, drinking enough, and avoiding smoking.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
