The Zambia Medicines Regulatory Authority (ZAMRA) has seized consignments of Ivermectin Tablets from three pharmacies in Chipata district, Eastern Province.
The three pharmacies are Motala Pharmacy, Chipata Chemist Limited and Healthcure Pharmacy Limited.
ZAMRA senior public relations officer Christabel Illiamupu disclosed in a statement that proprietors of the affected retail outlets have since been warned and cautioned for illegal sale of Ivermectin pending regulatory action.
“In Zambia, Ivermectin Injection has been registered and authorised for veterinary use only. Currently, there is no conclusive clinical evidence to support the use of Ivermectin for prevention or treatment of COVID-19,” she said.
