Study: Hydroxychloroquine effective against COVID

When U.S. President Donald Trump recommended the commonly used Malaria drug, hydroxychloroquine, back in April for the treatment of COVID-19, the mainstream media and left-wing politicians completely lost it. One politician even said she would charge Trump with crimes against humanity because of the recommendation.

However, it is becoming increasingly apparent that taken during the early stages of COVID, hydroxychloroquine is an effective tool in fighting the virus.

The Blaze reports on the most recent study:

A peer-reviewed study analyzing the effectiveness of a triple drug cocktail including hydroxychloroquine in treating COVID-19 patients found that the treatment was effective and that it significantly reduced hospitalization and mortality rates for those in the treatment group.

The study, authored by the controversial Dr. Vladimir Zelenko in partnership with two German doctors, was accepted for peer-review and will be published in the December issue of the International Journal of Antimicrobial Agents. An online-only version of the study was published Oct. 26. […]

The study found that treated patients were 84% less likely to be hospitalized than untreated ones. Of 141 treated patients, four were hospitalized, which was significantly fewer than 58 of 377 untreated patients who were sent to the hospital. Additionally, the mortality rate for treated patients was lower. Only one patient in the treatment group died versus 13 patients in the untreated group. The patient who died had a history of cancer and only took one daily dose of the triple therapy before hospital admission.
