Anti-malaria drug touted by Trump has high death risk in COVID-19 patients, new study shows
By Nathaniel Weixel - 05/22/20 10:48 AM EDT

Hospitalized COVID-19 patients who were treated with hydroxychloroquine, an anti-malaria touted by President Trump, had a much higher risk of death than those who were not, according to a new study of 96,000 patients.

The study, published Friday in the medical journal The Lancet, found that patients who were treated with hydroxychloroquine or chloroquine also faced a much higher risk of abnormal heartbeats, called arrhythmias, which could result in cardiac arrest.

The study looked at patients across six different continents, and is the largest analysis to date on the effects of treating COVID-19 patients with hydroxychloroquine or chloroquine.


Nearly 15,000 of the 96,000 patients in the analysis were treated with hydroxychloroquine or chloroquine alone or in combination with an antibiotic called a macrolide, similar to azithromycin, within 48 hours of their diagnosis.

Someone's lying. From a recent Am Spectator article:

Is HCQ as dangerous as the media and Democrats claim? Although the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently warned about HCQ possibly causing irregular heartbeat in COVID-19 patients, it provides no similar warning if the drug is used to treat malaria, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, and other diseases. The FDA has yet to explain either this contradictory position or how its newly minted warning regarding possible cardiac arrythmia in COVID-19 cases squares with HCQ’s six-decade record of safe use by millions of patients.

Those millions have taken HCQ on an outpatient basis without hospitalization or undergoing EKGs, cardiac monitoring, or similar medical surveillance. Over the decades, HCQ has proven to be very safe, and that excellent safety profile is well established and well known to health-care providers.

If Fauci had proclaimed this as a treatment, it would not be criticized. Since Trump made the proclamation it is deemed as dangerous.  I question this validity of this study as it was my understanding that it is the Zpack that causes the arrhythmia -- I've stated this before, as a heart patient, I can't take this drug. I was given a 3 day dose several years ago, I did ok, but info came out since then and my doc will no longer prescribe for me.

Also, the NIH has decided to stop its remdesivir study.  There seems to be conflicting evidence;some studies says it works some studies say that it doesn't work so well and can cause death.

I'm not trusting of any study or vaccine now because of the continuous discrepancy in reports. Is the true information being withheld from the public so that this virus claims a higher death toll, which would give reason for mail-in voting and another shut down??

What about the people who have been helped by the chloronique/zinc/z-pack combo and remdesivir?

Hydroxychloroquine shows no virus benefit, raises death risk: study

Patrick GALEY,AFP   •   May 22, 2020


Paris (AFP) - A study of nearly 100,000 coronavirus patients has shown no benefit in treating them with anti-viral drugs hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine and even increased the likelihood of them dying in hospital.

https://news.yahoo.com/hydroxychloroquine-shows-no-coronavirus-benefit-raises-death-risk-144240073.html

Yet another study which did not include zinc sulfate.  One hundred thousand coronavirus patients put at risk because THE crucial ingredient of the treatment was purposely omitted in order to make a political point.
If a political party does not have its foundation in the determination to advance a cause that is right and that is moral, then it is not a political party; it is merely a conspiracy to seize power.
