The World Health Organisation, WHO has warned patients with mild or moderate cases of COVID-19, against the use of fluvoxamine, an antidepressant drug, and colchicine, a drug for gout.

The WHO said current indications did not justify using colchicine to treat non-severe illnesses, and that fluvoxamine should not be used without clinical trials.
