Hydroxychloroquine vs COVID-19: WHO suspends Trump drug trials

The World Health Organization has temporarily suspended the testing of hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine as drugs for COVID-19.

A WHO decision is linked to a recent study that showed that using these drugs directly or in combination with antibiotics increases the risk of death from coronavirus. The organization emphasized that they would continue to study all currently available materials.

At the same time, the WHO emphasized that hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine continue to be considered safe in the treatment of malaria and autoimmune diseases.

U.S. President Donald Trump said he is taking hydroxychloroquine to prevent coronavirus infection. Trump emphasized that the doctor at the White House, with whom he had consulted, was not opposed to taking this drug. On May 25, Trump announced that he had stopped taking the drug.
