Hydroxychloroquine linked to increased risk of death in COVID-19 patients

The journal Lancet published an observational study spanning 671 hospitals worldwide, the anti-malarial drugs Hydroxychloroquine and Chloroquine are linked to a much higher fatality rate. The study covered 96,000 patients hospitalized with COVID-19 including nearly 15,000 who were treated with one of the drugs, often in combination with an antibiotic. The study controlled for age and other factors

Interestingly FDA stated its a very safe drug until now. It's too cheap and can't be patented... maybe that's their problem.

Pretty tough to know what is true these days. From a different study: Conclusions and Relevance Among patients hospitalized in metropolitan New York with COVID-19, treatment with hydroxychloroquine, azithromycin, or both, compared with neither treatment, was not significantly associated with differences in in-hospital mortality. However, the interpretation of these findings may be limited by the observational design. https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jama/fullarticle/2766117

The link is: people who are about to die try it as a last ditch effort. Just like the people who are more ill tend to be the ones being tested. Stop blindly following statistics.

Nice try big pharma lobbyists. Why hype the far more toxic remdecivir and a rushed vaccine over a decades old drug if safetey was the real concern?

Once again we have a study that supposedly debunks chloroquine by focusing on chloroquine's effect on hospitalized cases instead of those showing early or moderate symptoms. The whole point of chloroquine is to inhibit viral replication which is rendered pointless by the high viral load of hospitalized patients. Once severe symptoms kick in removing the viruses will no longer be usefull. The earlier it used the bettee.

Hydroxychloroquine failed the study because the math didn't add up enough... At the early onset of symptoms 5 Days of HCQ 5 days Azithromycin 5 days of zinc sulfate is less than $100.00

Yep... N permant unreversable eye damage. Fools... The fda never called it a safe drug.. Always upfront about the deadly side effects.. Those on it for the prescribed known use are strictly monitored.... When smoke clears it will show many deaths to elders n African Americans where accelerated by mis application of plaquinel aka hydrochlloroquine... As in that's medical malpractice text book case

Trump literally pushing it like a cult leader pushing kool aid and his cult buys into it! Then further analysis says probably not a good idea to take this drug as it does more bad than good for Covid, trump’s cult then says fake news. Trusting dear leader’s history of lying over scientists and health experts. Ha, you can’t make this stuff up.

I call bullshit on this study based on who is funding it and some of the references they use, such as the fda and the who.
