CNN reported a study Friday writing that “a surprising new study found the controversial antimalarial drug hydroxychloroquine helped patients better survive in the hospital”.

Dr. Marcus Zervos, division head of infectious disease for Henry Ford Health System, said 26% of those not given hydroxychloroquine died, compared to 13% of those who got the drug. The team looked back at everyone treated in the hospital system since the first patient in March, reported CNN.

CNN reported: The Henry Ford team said they believe their findings show hydroxychloroquine could be potentially useful as a treatment for coronavirus. “It’s important to note that in the right settings, this potentially could be a lifesaver for patients,” Dr. Steven Kalkanis, CEO of the Henry Ford Medical Group, said at the news conference.

President Donald Trump, though, was widely criticized in the media for saying that if hydroxychloroquine proves to work in treating coronavirus, it could be a game changer.

In May, he revealed to reporters that he was taking Hydroxychloroquine for a preventive measure after several White House officials were diagnosed with Covid-19.

“You’d be surprised at how many people are taking it, especially the frontline workers before you catch it. The front-line workers many, many are taking it,” the president informed reporters. “I happen to be taking [Hydroxychloroquine]. I happen to be taking it. Right now, a couple of weeks ago I started taking it. I think it’s good; I’ve heard a lot of stories.” Video Below

The leftwing media, some reporters, and even Democratic lawmakers for months, warned that Hydroxychloroquine was “not safe” to use for the treatment of coronavirus, appearing to want to go against the president, just to say that he was wrong.
