WHO temporarily suspends trial of hydroxychloroquine over safety concerns

Just to drive this home...

The World Health Organization is temporarily pausing tests of the anti-malarial drug hydroxychloroquine as a coronavirus treatment in order to review safety concerns, the agency's director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesu said Monday.

Why it matters: The decision comes after a retrospective review published in The Lancet found that coronavirus patients who took hydroxychloroquine or its related drug chloroquine were more likely to die or develop an irregular heart rhythm that can lead to sudden cardiac death, compared to those who did nothing.

The Executive Group has implemented a temporary pause of the hydroxychloroquine arm within the Solidarity Trial while the safety data is reviewed by the Data Safety Monitoring Board. The other arms of the trial are continuing. This concern relates to the use of hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine in COVID-19. I wish to reiterate that these drugs are accepted as generally safe for use in patients with autoimmune diseases or malaria.

— Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus

It will be because as an entertainer and member of SAG, in his professional opinion the WHO is a political organization totally dedicated to removing a virus from elected office. He thinks they ought to focus on their own business and instead delve into all those cover bands violating DMCA who are currently illegally covering copyrighted material.

It is, after all, a matter of priorities.
