Study: Hydroxychloroquine Helps Coronavirus Patients Survive

WASHINGTON (Newsmax) – A new study reveals that the hydroxychloroquine doubled the survival rate of patients hospitalized with COVID-19.

Doctors at Henry Ford Health System in southeast Michigan said that 26% of patients who did not receive the antimalarial drug died, compared to 13% of patients who received hydroxychloroquine during their stay in the hospital.

The team published their findings in the International Journal of Infectious Diseases, adding that patients who were given hydroxychloroquine alone did even better than the ones who received this drug along with azithromycin, according to CNN.

Other studies have shown no benefits of taking hydroxychloroquine for COVID-19, and some said that it may increase the risk for cardiovascular complications. President Donald Trump told reporters in May that he was taking the drug and called it a possible “game changer,” according to ABC News.

The Food and Drug Administration revoked its emergency use authorization for hydroxychloroquine on June 15, and trials around the world that were sponsored by the World Health Organization and the National Institutes of Health were stopped, according to CNN.

“Our results do differ from some other studies,” Dr. Marcus Zervos, division head of infectious diseases at Henry Ford, said. “What we think was important in ours is that patients were treated early. For hydroxychloroquine to have a benefit, it needs to begin before the patients begin to suffer some of the severe immune reactions that we have with COVID-19,” he added.

A French study published in Science Direct posted similar results. Researchers noted: “We believe there is an urgency to evaluate the effectiveness of this potentially life-saving therapeutic strategy at a larger scale.”

  1. Those of us who have family and friends who used this knew it all along.
    The evil Satanic Democrats and the TDS haters want millions dead however, in order to defeat Trump.
    This inexpensive med has also been used successfully in Europe.
    Fauci needs to be immediately imprisoned.

    • There is no way for you to know this all along: the only thing you know were stories from family and friends.
      Whether or not hydroxychloroquine works or not should be a question for science and medicine, not politics.
      As for your politics, wow.

  2. Wonder why every doctor says it works the Detroit study sAys it works yet WHO and CDC day not enough proof. Could it be the recommended Med which costs 3,500 per dose is a major contributor to WHO. No trump has said all along it works so maybe it’s the democrats controll of cdc nih thsts the problem

    • The world is not crazy, you are crazy. CDC, Fauci all work for Trump, he pays their salaries and he stands right behind them when he speaks on National Television. They cant say a single sentence without his approval r be fired like all others who don’t say what Trump tells them.

    • The FDA revoked. FDA = Foodl Drug Administration ADMINISTRATION. You still cant get over that Trumps is the President and he names (and fires) the ADMINISTRATION. Move on, Hillary and Obama are gone for years. In Six months when the Biden ADMINISTRATION takes over you will say its Trump???

    • Only the Republican world is getting crazier from taking this hydroHoax and drinking Lysol etc. Every State with new record COVID is a Republican State.(Do IU have to post them or you can read the news?) Liberal Europa, New York, NJ, Connecticut, Mass is near Zero, Fla, Texas have 10.000 new every day and record death every single day.

      • You are right about the record number. You LIE about record death.
        In fact, the death rates are WAY down. Because they figured out how to protect the sick and old and it is the young and healthy who are contracting Covid. Thus creating herd immunity and lowering the risk for the elderly.

      • More dead just in NY nursing homes alone because of Cuomo The Geronticide than in the whole state of Florida and Texas, the only ones saying to drink Lysol are the lying democrats and their propagandist media, the rates NY are going down because they were so high and most of the vulnerable population is dead already, more than 10 times the number of dead in Florida.

    • The DemocRATs are hustlers of hoax’s like the Russia collusion hoax the man made global warming hoax the America as a systemic racist country hoax now the Russia paying Afghans to kill American soldiers hoax (they gladly do it for free) and so and so forth.

  3. Very interesting.

    When all is said and done there will be a logical explanation which does not involve a conspiracy or evil intention by anyone.

  4. Take hydroxychloquine early on and it should work ,, there’s no downside . studies show that chocolate ice cream and vanilla ice cream can also qicken the healing process . Strawberry icecream needs to be experimented with a little more , however , before we can determine any thing about it’s healing abilities .

  5. Over the weekend a large randomized clinical trial was stopped because hydroxychloroquine failed to help. Randomized clinical trials are the gold standard and that pretty much is the end of the matter.
