Hydroxychloroquine was suggested as a possible prevention or treatment method against coronavirus but insufficient evidence was found to support the effectiveness of this drug.
New Drug Called Hydroxychloroquine Used by Trump to Fight Coronavirus

Starting with this article about the hydroxychloroquine, we know that this particular drug has currently shown no evidence that it may be active in preventing any person from contracting the coronavirus.

The use of hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine to treat hospitalized patients with coronavirus has been the subject of multiple conversations and discussions including longstanding medical reports of patients with serious heart rhythm problems and other special issues including disorders of the blood and lymphatic system, kidney injuries and liver failure problems all updated last June 15, 2020 on a comprehensive basis in analyses on various.

The "FDA" has revoked the emergency use authorization to establish the use of hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine as a special treatment for coronavirus in terminally ill patients who are hospitalized when no chemical assay or specific tests can be done to treat coronavirus related to this drug.

Plaquenil Hydroxychloroquine and Coronavirus


Several studies of hydroxychloroquine and Covid-19 have been conducted and the best available evidence currently suggests that hydroxychloroquine is not an effective drug in the absolute treatment or prevention of the coronavirus, as well as the potential benefits of this drug do not outweigh the known and potential risks from the same virus.

The only fda-approved treatment for coronavirus on the antiviral pathway is the Remdesivir (Veklury). It is trended and tested for all patients older than 12 years and weighing at least 88 pounds who are hospitalized with coronavirus. It is now known that the Federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is reporting that the shortage of hydroxychloroquine has been resolved over time and that some people may still be unable to fill their prescriptions.

Currently, there exist doubts that people or patients who are already taking the drug hydroxychloroquine have less chance, lower or higher risk of getting coronavirus because the lack of effectiveness increases the chances of spreading the virus. All that is known is that, there is no evidence that taking hydroxychloroquine, planquil, chloroquine is effective in preventing a person from contracting the coronavirus. For all people who have the superstition of taking hydroxychloroquine as a method of preventing the coronavirus or the spread of coronavirus, they must:

  • have several foods on hand and daily supplements
  • take precautions with others between personal and external spaces
  • keep away from others whom you consider to be in a condition, respective to their state of health
  • limit close contact and wash your hands very often in order to avoid the virus
  • avoid crowds and non-essential travels to foreign countries in order to prevent the spread of the coronavirus

The current problem with people who have not gotten the coronavirus is that they are not aware of the state of the problem, going out in a public place or in places where they don't exactly know if many people have an asymptomatic state of health and are not presenting symptoms to the virus and thus infect people who do not believe that these people have had a coronavirus before. It is recommended to be attentive to the symptoms and emergency signs and to be prepared to face any type of difficulty or adversity.

In many countries, the rumor spread, that hydroxychloroquine could be used as a preventive measure to treat patients with the coronavirus and thus avoid that people were infected when taking this drug, even the ex-president Donald Trump and President Bolsonaro of Brazil have already taken hydroxychloroquine as a preventive measure against the coronavirus. It is clear to know and recognize that, hydroxychloroquine is used to treat malaria as well as other conditions such as arthritis and lupus.

Some studies considered that hydroxychloroquine was used to reduce inflammation and fever and that... hopes in this drug were high that it could inhibit the Virus to students who showed symptoms in a shorter time. It was even said that hydroxychloroquine helped people with shown symptoms while other people indicated that it had no effect on their lives.

One of the longest studies by Oxford University has stated that 11,000 patients were employed for the use of the hydroxychloroquine effectiveness test and its effectiveness against the virus along with other potential treatments. They concluded that there is no beneficial effects against hospitalized patients with coronavirus, and that the drug has been taken out of play and put out of sight of cures or vaccines against Coronavirus.

Currently the whole planet is facing a global pandemic caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus and, contrary to the ideas and lack of hope of many infected patients that hydroxychloroquine could be effective against presented symptoms in the same another study was discovered in a diagnosis with patients that this drug is not going to be effective in combat against the coronavirus, letting people know that they have to take precaution against any source of contagion.

Also, the scientific community is advocating the use of chemoprophylaxis in people who are at increased risk of infection by using various methods of anti-infection, aids or vaccines, including many antimalarials such as chloroquine, hydroxychloroquine and the antiretrovirals:

  • lopinavir
  • ritonavir

Even though they have not been effective, there is greater interest in the use of chloroquine and hydroxyquin as a fighter against coronavirus. Two drugs that have been shown to be experimentally effective are: procaine, hydroxyquin, because of its antiviral capacity and prophylactic potential.

It is even known that some results were reported in an observational study in South Korea after a large coronavirus exposure event in a hospital. At the end of the quarantine such receive subsequent prophylaxis position with hydroxychloroquine corresponding to 400 mg for 14 days and all the follow-up observational tests turned out to be negative in about 211 exposed to the index cases, being the result that, many countries have already adopted plans for chemoprophylaxis and its use against Covid-19.

Regarding an updated search and follow-up, it was represented until April 15th, 2020, an objective follow-up of drugs or antivirals against the coronavirus including the antimalarial Hydroxychloroquine that did not turn out to be effective to be able to fight the virus at a global level. In conclusion to this, it was considered that Hydroxychloroquine did not turn out to be a beneficiary factor to be able to fight the disease both in patients who were already infected and for people as a prevention measure against the COVID-19.

The coronavirus has affected millions of individuals across the globe, it has also changed and transformed many people from countless others; despite the countless efforts that many have made with coronavirus prevention, hidroxychloroquine was suggested as a possible prevention or treatment method against coronavirus but, insufficient evidence was found to support the effectiveness of this drug.
