The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has withdrawn the emergency use of hydroxychloroquine for the treatment of COVID-19.
President Donald Trump has been calling for a cure.The FDA has said that, following the latest evidence, it would be unreasonable to believe that hydroxychloroquine and related drugs are effective drugs for the treatment of COVID-19.
Hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine have been used to treat malaria, skin disease, lupus, and joint pain. President Trump advertised hydroxychloroquine, and for some time he himself used it. Although many studies have stated that these drugs are not effective and doctors have warned that they can cause heart problems, the FDA has allowed them during clinical trials and in hospitals.
After the world’s largest trials by the University of Oxford, it was recently stated that “no beneficial effect of hydroxychloroquine has been observed in patients coming to hospitals due to COVID-19.”
