Trump drug hydroxychloroquine raises death risk in Covid patients, study says
Coronavirus hospital patients given hydroxychloroquine were more likely to die, medical journal study says.
The Lancet study involved 96,000 coronavirus patients, nearly 15,000 of whom were given hydroxychloroquine - or a related form chloroquine - either alone or with an antibiotic.The study found that the patients were more likely to die in hospital and develop heart rhythm complications than other Covid patients in a comparison group.
The death rates of the treated groups were: hydroxychloroquine 18%; chloroquine 16.4%; control group 9%. Those treated with hydroxychloroquine or chloroquine in combination with antibiotics had an even higher death rate.The researchers warned that hydroxychloroquine should not be used outside of clinical trials.
Mr Trump says he has not tested positive for Covid-19 and is taking the drug because he thinks it has"positive benefits".Media playback is unsupported on your deviceMedia captionTrump:"If it's not good, I'll tell you right, I'm not going to get hurt by it"
A trial is under way to see whether the anti-malarial drug could prevent Covid-19. More than 40,000 healthcare workers from Europe, Africa, Asia and South America who are in contact with patients with the disease will be given the drug as part of the trial.
When asked about the Lancet study, White House coronavirus taskforce co-ordinator Dr Deborah Birx said the US Food and Drug Administration had been"very clear" about concerns in using the drug as either a coronavirus prevention or as a treatment course.
Dr Marcos Espinal, director of the Pan American Health Organization - part of the World Health Organization - has stressed that no clinical trials have recommended the use of hydroxychloroquine for coronavirus. Read more: BBC News (UK) »
So it’s been used for years but is now suddenly soooooo dangerous. If such a dangerous drug has been allowed for years maybe we should be investigating the regulator! Trump drug? BBC imbeciles. Extremely dangerous and could cause many deaths, keeping a distance is highly important. Covid is also bad Hopefully most of his supporters are taking it
Is saying 'Trump drug' a bit like when he says 'Chinese virus'? You do know he didn't invent it yeah ? decrease the surplus population ploy 🤔 If people think hydrochloroquine is weird wait til they find out what they put in vaccines... Bbcstudysuggests CCBGB So why are wee bothering to test it I was responsible for raping kids on BBC premises and nobody gave a fuck.
Sorry , but it isn't Trumps 'drug' , he isn't a fucking pharmacist,he didn't create it , he just endorsed it , stupid headline 'Trump drug' what a biased, stupid and misleading headline that is. The drug has absolutely nothing to do with Trump. 1: Trump is taking it as a prophylactic, not treatment, according to your own reporting. 2: Its only available on prescription. Anyone with heart problems wouldn't be prescribed it. 3. It's been used to treat CV19 by 1/3 of doctors worldwide. Results vary.
Take with zinc and take early on. There are situations where it works. Need to be wise and also, know your own body. This is really a serious matter. A grave concern about public health. Who is going to sue Trump? And we're meant to be surprised? bbcnewsuk? Oh. What’s this? Against all the studies and doctors' on the grounds evidence to the contrary. Sure
Yet it has been tested on NHS staff. More money for the pharmaceutical companies if it's anything to with cowboy businessman trump Trump drug? Ok! BBC the anti-Trump brigade and Liberal/DemocRAT MSM brigade should visit a pharmacy and get some medication listed below for their hysterics Does it Studies have just started. No one has published an honest appraisal yet, because its too soon.
“Trump drug”... slick. WHO adviced to use this drug from the beginning. It’s in their official 19 drug protocol list and should be used with antiviral drug and an antibiyotics. You have to use them all together at the beginning of the virus symptoms. It’s not effective if you use it at the late stage.
Absolute rubbish. I read the report. There was a lot of ‘coulds’ and ‘mights’ and that report I tweeted about Hydroxychloroquine on April 5. No one paid heed.. Please Mr President, continue with your treatment Joelfc91 PS feel free to give some to your mate Murdoch too. I don't understand why he promotes such lethal solutions to his own base. Those are the ppl that will theoretically be voting for him. How can they vote if they're dead?
Some other countries are using this drug already. Their death rate is much lower than UK. You have to use this drug in an early stage of the Covid not in later stage, that’s how it works. One truck full of hydroxychloroquine being delivered to Trump right f'kin NOW... BBC raises rates in peadophilia and sexual inequality aka Jimmy Saville and Gary Linekar
Liar If you are right why are we trialing it to see what it can do against the virus? Quit. If this is true .... provide us with data showing someone who took this and still died! I call your bluff. Fake news, the tests were rigged to not use the necessary complementary additive, zinc. Big drug corps at work.
If the headline starts with 'Trump Drug' then the purpose of the article is clearly not science. It's politics. Lies Boris and Trump look healthy to me! Any person who listens to this fool and takes this drug deserves all they get! if in four years u haven’t understood he promotes nonsense to make him or his sad robbing friends money even if it cost him YOUR life u will never understand!
he is still alive, for the second presidency FakeNews How much did bill gates pay you to write that, or was it included in the 53 million he already gives to the BBC? awilliamscomedy Lot of Dr's about saying it works in the right conditions, it won't save someone very far along it seems. the fat guy is a fool what does he know FXXk all
Concerted effort by the MSM to rotate this same article between outlets in an effort to convince you the Lancet article is factual. There are countless more articles & studies promoting HCQ & it's effectiveness & safety - it's been around for 65 years & many take it today. Aren't we starting a test run of this on our NHS staff
Well i guess he can kill people and no one is doing aything about it Culpable homicide realDonaldTrump Have some more Mr. President! And wash it down with a nice big glass of Clorox. :-) Give it a rest. The drug has been used for years. You hate Trump. We get it.

Coronavirus: China begins key political event delayed by COVID-19 pandemicChina's president Xi Jinping held a silent tribute to victims of coronavirus at the start of the country's most important political event of the year It's nice to see him acknowledging the people he has killed. He should also hang his head in shame, over his Nazi like treatment of the Uighurs in his concentrationcamps . ChinaLiedPeopleDied so China must also become a state universally condemned to the extent, that no civilised state deals with them until they stop abusing humanity. After the silent tribute, he continues to silence the dissents in china and hk

Coronavirus: Northern Ireland rejects UK's COVID-19 contact-tracing appThe health minister for Northern Ireland said it was working on a separate app that could share data with the Republic of Ireland.
