France bans hydroxychloroquine to treat severe forms of COVID-19

The French government has banned the use of hydroxychloroquine as a treatment to patients suffering severe forms of COVID-19. The move is the first by a country since the WHO said it was pausing a large trial of the malaria drug on COVID-19 patients due to safety concerns.

Good bcs there is no supporting evidence that it actually works. Which obviously it doesn't. Trump just wanted all you SUCKERS to buy so he and his rich pals stocks would bump up

Well, its banned for severe cases of COVId, cuz those are the scenarios where its more dangerous, than it is helpful.

I suppose France must have TDS. Or they are doing it to spite Trump. Or they have looked at the research, looked at the numbers and decided it doesn't work.

My 85 year old mum was on oxygen. Hydroxy and she got better within 6 hours. Saved her life. I understand a 45ct pill that has/is being taken by 100m people over 50 years with a 1/1,000,000 chance of a heart problem... could be a threat. After all the Manhattan vaccine project awaits. Aids has been going since 1980 .... still no vaccine. 40,000 by doctors are now on it in nhs.

If this virus is so dangerous why ban a drug that could (and actually has) saved lives? This drug has been on the WHO list of vital medications for years... now suddenly it's danger? This action probably means the drug is effective but the big pharma and other powerful people won't make money off it. That's what this "pandemic" is coming down to.

Based France. Seeing countless trials, both before and after Trump shot his mouth off on this topic, conclude this drug to only provide negative effects should have made this standard practice long before now.

Because the drug is risky to take even for reasons that have made it thru clinical trials.... Try reading the side effects some that are lethal or permant loss of vision due to retina damage.... It's closely regulated for patients who are on it for lupus... It's sole purpose is to help reduce cytokine production that leads to flare up... N there is no clinical data that's been done in random trials with it alone.... Further most who get covid disease already suffer from the very issues like heart disease that makes it lethal in first place... And another side effect is internal bleeding which if you are suffering from covid d 19 disease you already show a super high d dimer which leads to you guessed it internal bleeding from the alveoli at the lungs swinging you in that deadly almost always fatal condition called disseminated intervascular coagulation... Aka bleeding to death with major organ failure........ It is a red herring drug.... And when smoke clears n data fully in.. Gonna discovered it killed far more than it cured.... By accelerating the Co morbid conditions when given to patients in act of desperation... You ppl know zero about French medicine n French pharmacopeia... U should be kissing their asses.. Tis the French who first genetically mapped hiv... N French that helped fight n respond to ebola... Back in the seventies n eighties.... They aren't a racket like the ama....

I have read every study I’ve come across on the subject. There is almost no evidence that HCL works for cases already serious, BUT there are strong indications that HCL works well during early stages of the desease, limiting the severity of desease.

I dont think wearing masks will cause or prevent CoVid-19. I dont get sick. I have not changed 1 thing since this out break. I am around random people smoking, and partying. Not 1 person i know has been sick. It's been really nice have not having the cops patrolling. Crime is definitely down people are happy they're visiting family they're doing things with family that they wouldn't normally do it's been great but we can stop running the masks let's keep this Corona virus thing going it's kind-of nice. (X the MASK)
