Hydroxychloroquine reduces time to clinical recovery when treating COVID-19 disease patients:

The accelerating debate about the clinical benefit of treating COVID-19 disease patients with hydroxychloroquine became a little bit clearer with a new study.

Previous studies have indicated that chloroquine (CQ) shows antagonism against COVID-19 in vitro. 

As a derivative of CQ, hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) is reported to offer similar therapeutic effects, but with fewer adverse effects. 

However, the scientific evidence regarding this antimalarial drug efficacy in COVID-19 patients is limited, since it is a new disease. 

A new, small, non-peer-reviewed clinical study published on March 31, 2020, evaluated the efficacy of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) in the treatment of patients with COVID-19 in China. 

From February 4 to February 28, 2020, 62 patients suffering from COVID-19 were diagnosed and admitted to the Renmin Hospital of Wuhan University, located in China.

All participants were randomized in a parallel-group trial #ChiCTR2000029559, 31 patients were assigned to receive an additional 5-day HCQ (400 mg/d) treatment, Time to clinical recovery (TTCR), clinical characteristics, and radiological results were assessed at baseline and 5 days after treatment to evaluate the effect of HCQ.

“The effect of censoring debate on these early treatments could have possibly been responsible for the death of hundreds of thousands of people.
So, where we should have been having more open debate and more free debate, shutting down debate is likely to have killed people. Not just one or two people, but probably hundreds of thousands. This is why throughout the last 250 years people have said free speech is so important. This is why people have said, ‘I may not agree with what you say but I’ll fight to my death your right to say it.’”
