Hydroxychloroquine: Trump’s Covid-19 ‘cure’ increases deaths, global study finds
Malaria drug should not be used to treat coronavirus, scientists say, after study shows high death rate
Hydroxychloroquine, the anti-malarial drug Donald Trump is taking to prevent Covid-19, has increased deaths in patients treated with it in hospitals around the world, a study has shown.
A major study of the way hydroxychloroquine and its older version, chloroquine, have been used on six continents – without clinical trials – reveals a sobering picture. Scientists said the results meant the drug should no longer be given to Covid-19 patients except in proper research settings.
