    Hydroxychloroquine was widely denounced as dangerous and ineffective after being touted by President Trump as a treatment for the novel coronavirus, but newly released research found the drug actually works.

    A peer-reviewed study published Thursday in the International Journal of Infectious Diseases found that 13% of hospitalized patients treated with hydroxychloroquine alone died of COVID-19, compared to 26.4% who died who were not treated with the drug.

    Our analysis shows that using hydroxychloroquine helped save lives,” said Dr. Steven Kalkanis, a neurosurgeon, CEO of the Henry Ford Medical Group, and senior vice president of the Henry Ford Health System in Detroit, where the study was conducted.

    “As doctors and scientists, we look to the data for insight,” said Dr. Kalkanis in a statement. “And the data here is clear that there was benefit to using the drug as a treatment for sick, hospitalized patients.”

    Also from the article:
    Dr. Zervos added that “other studies are either not peer reviewed, have limited numbers of patients, different patient populations or other differences from our patients.”

    In a peer-reviewed study of 2,541 patients hospitalized at Michigan’s six Henry Ford hospitals during the coronavirus peak, scientists found that hydroxychloroquine “cut the death rate significantly” without “heart-related side-effects.” Treatment with Hydroxychloroquine Cut Death Rate Significantly in COVID-19 Patients, Henry Ford Health System Study Showspic.twitter.com/6BWINcWSw1

    Now it is clear in the Henry Ford study along with several international studies that hydroxychloroquine saves lives.

    This study should also end Dr. Fauci’s career in medicine.
    Dr. Fauci has fought against the use of hydroxychloroquine in treating coronavirus since it was first discovered as a successful treatment to the disease.

    Dr. Ramin Oskoui joined Raymond Arroyo on The Ingraham Angle to discuss this latest study.

    When all is said and done, I have to believe this will be the biggest medical scandal in history. Corruption is the only thing that can explain the FDA's actions.

    since Fauci opposed the use of hydroxychloroquine, (he certainly did not promote this), and many people have died, likely quite a few could have lived, so Fauci's advice has been deadly to the sick.

    If covid cases are spiking up, we still have no vaccine, and not any effective approved drugs yet, making this drug even more critical to future lives of the sick. It continues to be shown to work worldwide when NOT given as a last ditch emergency drug to those about ready to die. Seems deliberate attempt to squash the use of this drug for purely political reasons as in the 2020 election. These people are evil to do that.

    The drug has been used in other countries successfully. I notice cases falling off rapidly in Europe, (are they using it there?) and get this ,AFRICA, where lots of people take hydroxychloroquine prophylactically to prevent malaria, they have FEW cases of covid 19, the disease is rare in Africa and has not accelerated like it has in the USA.
