Regrettably some reputable pharmacies and department stores were engaged in the unwholesome practice to distort the market, or temporarily restrict availability in order to unreasonably increase prices.

According to reports coming from IgbereTV, Immediately after Stella Immanuel Texas, US doctor publicly stated that hydroxychloroquine, zinc, and Zithromax have been used to cure COVID-19 patients, a drug store in Port Harcourt, Rivers State Nigeria, EBUS Pharmacy Ltd, now sells a packet of this drug for Fifty Thousand Naira – N50,000.
