Hydroxychloroquine and the AMA

Christopher Boyle reported, “The American Medical Association, in a surprising move, has officially rescinded a previous statement against the use of Hydroxychloroquine in the treatment of COVID-19 patients, giving physicians the okay to return to utilizing the medication at their discretion.
“Previously, the AMA had issued a statement in March that was highly critical of HCQ in regards to its use as a proposed treatment by some physicians in the early stages of COVID-19. In addition to discouraging doctors from ordering the medication in bulk for off-label use – HCQ is typically used to treat diseases such as malaria – they also claimed that there was no proof that it was effective in treating COVID, and that its use could be harmful in some instances.”
