COVID-19: Study in The Lancet on Chloroquine Has Validity Questioned by Scientists in Open Letter

The letter titled “Hydroxychloroquine or chloroquine with or without macrolide for the treatment of COVID-19: a multinational registry analysis”, in literal translation, questions the methods used by the study published in The Lancet to determine the ineffectiveness of the drug that is used to treat other diseases such as lupus, malaria and rheumatoid arthritis.

The conclusion of the study was that hydroxychloroquine is not effective in the treatment of coronavirus, but also increases the mortality of patients, similar to what was observed in the study conducted in Manaus, where 11 died while receiving higher doses of the drug.

In view of this, dozens of professionals thoroughly analyzed the publication and discovered several strange points such as lack of access to the basic information of the research and ethical review of the results and these data.

In view of this, researchers and physicians from around the world who sign the open letter ask the WHO for a thorough review of research by a respected and independent institution. Subscribers include members of Harvard and even Imperial College London who dispute and want more comprehensive information about how the study concluded that the substance is not effective.
