Hello and welcome to XXXXXXX

Thank you for your query.

1. The use of Lariago (chloroquine) is considered safe in the prophylactic (preventive) treatment of malaria (which means the patient does not necessarily have malaria) is considered safe.

2. Yes ma'am, although extremely rare, iatrogenic intestinal injury during a C-section is possible and is mainly because your intestines are very close to the region where a c-section is conducted. Thus, during surgery, the instruments used can cause a hole/perforation in the intestines. This has to usually be stitched closed as soon as possible to avoid infections or other complications.

I hope this information is what you were looking for ma'am. Do write back to me for any further information or clarifications. I would be glad to help.

Best wishes.
