Outbreak globally
Study that halted hydroxychloroquine trials retracted
The Lancet Medical Journal said that after the study was published “several concerns were made with respect to the veracity of the data” involved. The study claimed patients taking hydroxychloroquine faced higher mortality rates, causing trials of the drug as a treatment for COVID-19 to be halted. A third-party peer review of the paper was unable to gain access to all the data required and its author requested it be retracted. WHO has since resumed trials of the drug. from twitter

Today, three of the authors have retracted "Hydroxychloroquine or chloroquine with or without a macrolide for treatment of COVID-19: a multinational registry analysis" Read the Retraction notice and statement from The Lancet https://t.co/pPNCJ3nO8n https://t.co/pB0FBj6EXr
