Study ties hydroxychloroquine use to lower COVID-19 death rate

A study released on Thursday links the use of hydroxychloroquine on COVID-19 patients to lower death rates, as health experts around the country try to find an effective treatment to combat the pandemic.

The study, conducted by Michigan’s Henry Ford Health System, states that hydroxychloroquine, the controversial anti-malarial drug heralded by the White House as potential treatment for the coronavirus, “significantly” lowered the mortality rate among COVID-19 patients.

In patients that received the drug, the death rate was 13 percent as compared to a death rate of 26.4 percent in patients who weren’t administered the treatment.

If you have a bad case, might as well get it if you can. Other repurposed drug studies are being done, if anything helps even a little if is worth. Lowering such a great percent helps a lot though.
