U.S. Food and Drug Administration and WHO confirms that hydroxychloroquine does not have clinical benefits in treating COVID-19.
World Health Organization (WHO) said that the Solidarity Trial to find an effective COVID-19 treatment was being stopped as the results from the U.K.'s Recovery trial and French Discovery trial data both showed that hydroxychloroquine does not help in the reduction of mortality of hospitalized COVID-19 patients nor help people with mild or moderate symptoms. It also said that the use of hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine is accepted as generally safe for patients with malaria and autoimmune diseases.
Dr. Anthony Fauci, a member of the White House coronavirus task force, has said that hydroxychloroquine is not effective against the COVID-19 and not appropriate to treat the COVID-19 patients.
The COVID-19 pandemic has given rise to a lot of potentially dangerous misinformation. For reliable advice on COVID-19 including symptoms, prevention and available treatment, please refer to the World Health Organisation or your national healthcare authority.
