WHO temporarily halts trial of hydroxychloroquine over safety concerns

https://www.nbcnews.com/news/world/who- ... d_nn_tw_ma
The medication, best known for use against malaria and autoimmune disorders, has been touted as a possible answer to COVID-19 by President Donald Trump.

But WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said evidence has shown harmful side effects of hydroxychloroquine, including heart problems.

"The executive group has implemented a temporary pause of the hydroxychloroquine arm within the Solidarity trial while the safety data is reviewed by the data safety monitoring board. The other arms of the trial are continuing,” Tedros told an online briefing.

Dr. Soumya Swaminathan, WHO's chief scientist, said the organization's own investigators and regulators in individual nations have raised enough red flags about hydroxychloroquine to prompt this halt.

Wish I'd saved a screenshot, just for her crazy eyes.

For those that didn't get to see her insane video rant, this now suspended nut case (with QMAGA in the middle of her name) was very upset that her doctor refused to give her a scrip for hydroxychloroquin, and even more outraged that said doctor had the nerve to tell her that her beloved President, Donald J. Trump, is an idiot who doesn't know what he's talking about & is going to get people killed! Can you imagine?

"This tweet is from a suspended account."

Edit: It looks like the suspended account is the woman who claimed she couldn't get hydroxychloriquine. https://twitter.com/ MiaRubee/status/1265344129443065856 (I broke the link)

“Doctors all over are denying us the right to try when we have legal right to try.” And her doctor is suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome. And she shared some facts with him.

Boy is she angry.
Edit: I bet she’s pro-choice because abortion is legal and she has a legal right to do what she wants with her body. :sarcasm:

Someone took those "ask your doctor if [x] is right for you" commercials a little too literally.

Because sometimes the answer is "no."

I don't think TDS means what she thinks it does, she has it. Also too, it is ONLY legal if your doctor will prescribe it for you.
The fact that you sincerely and wholeheartedly believe that the “Law of Gravity” is unconstitutional and a violation of your sovereign rights, does not absolve you of adherence to it.

It's astonishing that these idiot doctors think they know more about medicine than the Psychobozo who couldn't pass high school biology if he had to. The nerve! :madguy:

France bans hydroxychloroquine to treat COVID-19 amid safety concerns

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-heal ... 233197?il=
...
The move, which takes immediate effect, is the first by a country since the World Health Organization said on Monday it was pausing a large trial of the malaria drug on COVID-19 patients due to safety concerns.

The cancellation of the decree, which in effect means the drug is now banned for such use, was announced in the government’s official bulletin and confirmed by a statement by the health ministry. It did not refer to the WHO suspension.

France decided at the end of March to allow the use of hydroxychloroquine, which in addition to malaria is approved for treating lupus and rheumatoid arthritis, in specific situations and in hospitals only for treating COVID-19 patients.

British medical journal The Lancet has reported that patients getting hydroxychloroquine had increased death rates and irregular heartbeats, adding to a series of other disappointing results for the drug as a way to treat COVID-19.

He somehow needs to get rid of the unusable national stockpile that Jared prepared for dotus. Later he can bash the nasty brown people for not admiring the big donation they just received and need to dump it somewhere after the medicine expires.

At least Brazil has some malaria to treat. And if not, Bolsonaro can regift it to another country.

The story on hydroxychloroquine is apparently not yet complete....

Lancet, New England Journal retract Covid-19 studies, including one that raised safety concerns about malaria drugs

https://www.statnews.com/2020/06/04/lan ... SSk3VbdnnM


And a Yale professor of epidemiology recently published a paper in the American Journal of Epidemiology, arguing that hydroxychloroquine (in combo with other drugs) may be extremely important for reducing the hospitalization rate of Covid-19:
