According to a Yale professor there is a political propaganda war being waged against hydroxychloroquine in its usage to combat the Coronavirus. The drug is commonly used medication to battle multiple issues including Malaria.
In an op-ed published by Newsweek, Yale Epidemiology Professor Dr. Harvey Risch wrote that hydroxychloroquine is “highly effective, especially when given in combination with the antibiotics azithromycin or doxycycline and the nutritional supplement zinc.”
Risch said the drug works against the virus when taken early before it multiplies throughout the body. He said some physicians who prescribed hydroxychloroquine to patients are now being scrutinized for their actions.
Professor Dr. Harvey Risch added:
“I myself know of two doctors who have saved the lives of hundreds of patients with these medications but are now fighting state medical boards to save their licenses and reputations. The cases against them are completely without scientific merit.”.
And don’t take his word for it.
