Remember all the liberal crying when Trump suggested Hydroxychloroquine could be effective defending against the China virus? Their responses ranged from saying Trump encouraged people to drink bleach to how Trump's comments were responsible for killing Vets at the VA Hospitals. Even some scientists urged caution as doctors began to report potentially deadly changes to the heart’s rhythm. In April, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration warned against use of the drug outside a closely-monitored hospital setting or clinical trial. Then, last month, the FDA withdrew hydroxychloroquine sulfate and the related chloroquine phosphate from the Strategic National Stockpile for use among hospitalized COVID-19 patients. The New England Journal of Medicine and The Lancet had articles saying that it was not effective in fighting Covid. But "suddenly", those articles were retracted after researchers questioned irregularities in the data. This past Friday, a Henry Ford Health System study (being published in the International Journal of Infectious Diseases) shows the controversial anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine does help reduce the death rate of COVID-19 patients. Even though officials with the Michigan health system said the study found the drug “significantly” decreased the death rate of patients involved in the analysis, many major hospitals in Michigan still refuse to implement hydroxychloroquine in their covid treatments.
