NOW THEY TELL US: Hydroxychloroquine may have some use to treat COVID after all, NJ study shows. I took it when I had Covid and my case was mild, for whatever that’s worth.
A new Hackensack Meridian Health study shows that people with mild symptoms of COVID-19 may be helped by a controversial drug that had been widely used in the early days of the pandemic before several studies questioned its benefits and safety.
The recently published study looked at a group of people treated as outpatients last year and found that those who received an anti-inflammatory drug, hydroxychloroquine, which is often used for malaria, were significantly less likely to end up in the hospital. Doctors who conducted the study say the findings suggest that it should be tested further.
