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 -- a finding that conservatives say validates President Trump's early statements on the drug, even as various media outlets mocked him for suggesting the treatment might be effective.
Researchers analyzed the health outcomes of 2,451 patents over a six month period; analysis from cardiologist Dr. Ramin Oskoui, CEO of Foxhall Cardiology.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,publishedin 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 fromsome 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."
It added: "The new study from the Henry Ford Health System should be a clear message to the media and the Democrats: stop the bizarre attempts to discredit hydroxychloroquine to satisfy your own anti-Trump agenda. It may be costing lives."The findings, conservatives said, highlighted efforts by media partisans to undermine confidence in the drug simply to undercut the president.
"So fewer people died because they took the drug @realDonaldTrump suggested.... Thank you, POTUS for doing the right thing even in the face of a DC culture attacking you no matter what you do," wrote former Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell.
The Federalist's Sean Davis added: "Media and incompetent corrupt government officials lied to you about social distancing. They lied to you about hydroxychloroquine. They lied to you about risks to children and the general population. They lied not to help you, but to control you, and they’re not going to stop."
At a March 19 White House briefing, Trump had remarked: "Now, a drug called chloroquine, and some people would add to it, hydroxychloroquine, so chloroquine or hydroxychloroquine ... [has] shown very encouraging, very, very encouraging early results." The president acknowledged that the drug may not "go as planned" and that more testing was needed, but that "we’re going to be able to make that drug available almost immediately."
That statement prompted immediate mockery from journalists. Read more: Fox News »

About the bleach? Yes! Go do hat! I’m not sure what you’ve been saying, but you convinced my Fox watching friend there’s going to be a covid “cure” by the end of summer on Thursday, & that boy is in for a world of heartache. Thanks, assholes! The study showed will work but didn't show which age. They are only said 'likely will not die ' but not sure. I don't trust any trash come out Trump administration. They are never tell the truth. Next will be ?
Is he ever wrong? 👏👏👏👏 You know what else have save lives too, staying in your freaking house!! So with it he can get in the crowd at Mt. Rushmore, shake lots and hands and show everyone he’s been right all along. If he doesn’t what does that show? And yes you plus other media outlets did say the President was wrong
I love this POTUS,,,!!! Stay healthy and Strong.. Meh Where is that fake doctor TeamCavuto ? Tell Neil Cavuto TeamCavuto How much pharma companies paid for this stupidity? Researchers? Do they mean unregistered hostile foreign agents using our citizens for criminal experiments and spying in U.S. while on work visa? It takes 5 seconds for any real doctor to know that Hydroxychloroquine is a scam.
Trump be like! This from a tweet I screenshot. Sorry I didn't include the tweeters name. Sooooooo, we should all be getting an apology from NBCNightlyNews CBSEveningNews ABC CNN MSNBC ? Are you getting all of your narrative pushes directly from DNC or is there a middle man? You’re all so blatantly biased it’s beyond ridiculous at this point. Laughable.
No kidding! We all knew that. It's just that MSM and deep-state Fauci did nothing but denounce it as effective. Any state official who prohibited drs. from prescribing it to their patients has blood on his/her hands. Read the whole study. Was not given to older and sicker patients only to younger that would have survived anyway.
Well, well, well… Bad orange man was right again. 😑 Fake news cnn was discouraging people to stop taking it while WHO condemned it Great news! In Brazil all private hospitals are using 'hydroxocloroquine + some medicines' with extraordinary success since the beginning of the pandemic... Media and fauci have blood on their hands! How many lives could have been saved?

Too bad that it was too late to save ‘this’ man. People in these comments overjoyed by a 13.5 percent mortality rate saying Trump was right lol. Just wear a damn mask! Vindicated, Even sick CNN is having to swallow their own lies on this one. Omg Fox against the rest of the world scientific population !! What a joke you guys are FAKE NEWS
