The following is a meta-analysis of various reports that used hudroxychloroquine (HCQ) for COVID-19 treatment. Based on their research, authors Chadwick Prodromos and Tobias Rumschlag offers these four important results: (1) HCQ is consistently effective for COVID-19 when used early in the course of the disease. The earlier it is used, the more effective it is at preventing disease; (2) HCQ has efficacy against COVID-19 in a majority of studies; (3) there are no unbiased studies which showed that HCQ had a negative effect on COVID-19 patients; and (4) HCQ is safe for COVID-19 treatment when it is used responsibly.
Editor’s Note: This research is one of many showing the efficacy of HCQ as treatment for COVID-19 [see AAPS: Countries using hydroxychloroquine have lower coronavirus fatality rate, The key to overcoming COVID-19 already exists, Read it yourself: Transcript of the first press conference of America’s Frontline Doctors, and Study: Treatment with hydrochloroquine cut COVID-19 death rate significantly to find more, also visit https://twitter.com/CovidAnalysis for more researches].
Why then are we waiting for a vaccine if COVID-19 is preventable by a drug that is proven to be safe and effective? Several articles on this website may offer some clarity on why there is a massive smear campaign against HCQ for the treatment of COVID-19 patients, see Alternative views concerning the COVID-19 vaccine and Vaccines: Trojan Horses for Global Sterilization and Surveillance.
