    Hydroxychloroquine helped save coronavirus patients, study shows; Trump campaign hails 'fantastic news'

    Hydroxychloroquine helped save coronavirus patients, study shows; Trump campaign hails 'fantastic news'

    Researchers at the Henry Ford Health System in Southeast Michigan have found that early administration of the drug hydroxychloroquine makes hospitalized patients substantially less likely to die.


    The study, published in the International Journal of Infectious Diseases, determined that hydroxychloroquine provided a "66% hazard ratio reduction," and hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin a 71 percent reduction, compared to neither treatment.

    In-hospital mortality was 18.1 percent with both drugs, 13.5 percent with just hydroxychloroquine, 22.4 percent with azithromycin alone, and 26.4 percent with neither drug. "Prospective trials are needed" for further review, the researchers note.

    "Our results do differ from some other studies," Dr. Marcus Zervos, who heads the hospital's infectious diseases unit, said at a news conference. "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 patients can have with COVID."

    A statement from the Trump campaign hailed the study as "fantastic news."

    "Fortunately, the Trump Administration secured a massive supply of hydroxychloroquine for the national stockpile months ago," a statement read. "Yet this is the same drug that the media and the Biden campaign spent weeks trying to discredit and spread fear and doubt around because President Trump dared to mention it as a potential treatment for coronavirus."

    Got mine from a Canadian Pharmacy site, since Whitmer makes it impossible to get in Michigan. She prefers that we die at her feet, just like the nursing home patients did. She won’t release those numbers of deaths from nursing homes because.......you don’t question your dictator. Even when it came out that a black 20 something mental patient was sent INTO a nursing home because he tested positive for covid....where he brutally beat an elderly patient......the local news looked the other way. Sending him into a nursing home was a non story locally, because it outed the atrocity that our leftist female governor was committing. The local media loves their leftist female governor. Don’t you think they might question why he was sent to a nursing home? Why indeed.

    She was trying to show Biden how mean she is and she did prove it.
