The World Health Organization is discontinuing its trials of malaria drug hydroxychloroquine and a combination HIV drug in hospitalized patients with COVID-19

The World Health Organization ( WHO ) said on Saturday that it was discontinuing its trials of the malaria drug hydroxychloroquine and combination HIV drug lopinavir/ritonavir in hospitalised patients with COVID-19 after they failed to reduce mortality.

“These interim trial results show that hydroxychloroquine and lopinavir/ritonavir produce little or no reduction in the mortality of hospitalised COVID-19 patients when compared to standard of care. Solidarity trial investigators will interrupt the trials with immediate effect,” the WHO said in a statement, referring to large multicountry trials that the agency is leading.

The U.N. agency said the decision, taken on the recommendation of the trial’s international steering committee, does not affect other studies where those drugs are used for non-hospitalised patients or as a prophylaxis.Another branch of the WHO-led trial is looking at the potential effect of Gilead’s antiviral drug remdesivir on COVID-19. The European Commission on Friday gave remdesivir conditional approval for use after being shown to shorten hospital recovery times.

The solidarity trial started out with five branches looking at possible treatment approaches to COVID-19: standard care; remdesivir; hydroxychloroquine; lopinavir/ritonavir; and lopanivir/ritonavir combined with interferon.WHO director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told reporters on Friday that nearly 5,500 patients in 39 countries had been recruited so far into its clinical trials and that interim results were expected within two weeks.

Some 18 experimental COVID-19 vaccines are being tested on humans among nearly 150 treatments under development.Mike Ryan, WHO’s top emergencies expert, said on Friday that it would be unwise to predict when a vaccine could be ready. While a vaccine candidate might show its effectiveness by year’s end, the question was how soon it could then be mass-produced, he said.

Mauritius races to contain oil spill, protect coastline

Thousands of students, environmental activists and residents of Mauritius are working around the clock to reduce the damage done to the Indian Ocean island from an oil spill after a ship ran aground on a coral reef

The WHO wrong yet again. If WHO (Communist China's Propaganda Spokesperson) says it is bad, it probably works. WHO wins Corrupt Organization of 2020 Award. Its funny that people think they are experts now on viruses and pandemic, its so easy to criticize if have no clue what's going on.. FROM WARCRIMINAL TEDROS...

Educated fools running an asylum. The cure is in Ayurveda morons. Do it as you have done it before, steal our teachings & knowledge and pose as if you did the hard work to invent or discover. Typical European and Western pirates!!!! Cannot control this pandemic till date. Can't control the mortality,and cannot control economic crisis. Then what actually had done by WHO - everything happening as per the creator of this universe.helplessness.

WHO does work for? WHO WHO? They fail at most everything. Useless organization. WHO needs to be disbanded This is untrue. WHO got BYG from CCP. Believe WHO, people die fast. The WHO is pissed that the new study that came out, disproves there rhetoric 🤷🏽‍♂️ This appears to be late news, because they had formally reported their findings on this drug, fir quite some time.

WHO Why world is not saving lives by using most successful medicine launched by PypAyurved in India. It is safe. It has no side effects It's costing only $10. It's has shown 100% success against Covid19, in clinical &oth tests. yogrishiramdev has team of 500 scientists Isn’t it a sudo Opiate ? A bit of Quinine added ,!?

People are desperate for solutions and we are chasing everything that looks promising Covid-19 is still new there is not enough known about it but the basic preventative measures seem to work And trumpers pushing a drug that causes ventricular arrthymia Badly written. HCQ with other things proven to work. Just this combination doesn't.

The WHO are corrupt. Their studies are of poor quality. Hydroxychloroquine must be gives AS EARLY AS POSSIBLE WITH ZINC. Why isnt Vit D being talked about? THIS IS B.S. The WHO has already lost U.S. Funding and has been proven to be fraudulent in its reporting, recommendations, etc. Quinine = Hydroxychloroquine with zinc, Vitamins A, C, D, & Bcomplex works and THE WHO doesn't want you to know it.

DEEER! Don't take any notice of TRUMP There was another recently reported study that said it DID reduce mortality.... The mere fact they PURPOSELY and administer this incorrectly sheds light on how corrupt they are, feeding the fear theme and playing political games with peoples lives Because it provided positive outcomes?

This is the one they want: “Another branch of the WHO-led trial is looking at the potential effect of Gilead's antiviral drug remdesivir on COVID-19.” This is a repeat of an older story from some time back. It's essentially meaningless. WHO PICE OF SHIT Yeah coz probably Africa has plenty of those in their labs

WHO, what, where, when, die....they’re corrupt. Byeeee byeeee Why were they even wasting time & resources on this trial? Any positive result that helping hospitalized patients? CDCDirector Sir,please advise your comment matters a lot. Different counties are using different medicine for human trial By mistake it may develop something new infection or dangerous issue.WHO CDCemergency CDC_eHealth

WHO = We Hide Outbreaks. Kick the entire UN into the Atlantic and let them paddle back to China. MAMMONIST WHO IS NO LONGER OF YESTERYEARS !!! Who? The corrupt shill WHO is contradicting itself every 5 minutes, so who cares...!? Why? It works. Now realDonaldTrump did lose his investment in that hydroxychloroquine.

The drug was meant primarily for prehospitilzation, why did the WHO do no trials of the drug with pt's with early symptoms instead of telling them to go home self isolate and treat them if they come back and it is too late for anything. CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY! Fake News is working overtime. Propaganda

Weird... And this just after CNN reported that this drug was actually working. Makes one wonder 🤔 Note the very relevant distinction that this 'trial' only concerns hydroxychloroquine used on hospitalized patients. No mention of specifics but the fact is that it has long been known that once hospitalized the effects are minimal to none. Taken early BEFORE hospital is ongoing.

It's not clear, is 'lopanivir/ritonavir combined with interferon' also discontinued, or only 'lopinavir/ritonavir (HIV drug)' alone? why is this relevant. Is there nothing more? Crikey.
