Low blow for Trump: High mortality rate in Covid-19-patients hydroxychloroquine

Covid-19-patients treated with antimalarials, hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine, have a large-scale study found a higher mortality rate. “Hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine show no Benefit at Covid-19-patients,” said study author Mandeep Mehra from the Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School in Boston on Friday. Rather, the collected data pointed to an increased risk of death. In addition, the medication increased the risk for heart rhythm disturbances.

The result of the study is another low blow for US President Donald Trump, the promoted for weeks, the two Malaria funds in the fight against the Coronavirus. To be had only at the beginning of the week, he announced that he is taking hydroxychloroquine as a preventive measure even. He gave the impression, taking to be safe. For that, Trump has been criticised massively, even from his home station, Fox News, the US President covers since then, with insults.

Donald Trump: critics are correct

But on Friday in the journal “The Lancet” published a study Trumps the critics are clearly right – and it is not only a further investigation. A research team at the Harvard Medical School in Boston and the heart centre at the University hospital of Zurich, was evaluated for the study, the data of 96,000 patients in hundreds of hospitals around the world.

The researchers distinguished four groups: One group received hydroxychloroquine, a further chloroquine. The third group was treated with one of the two agents in combination with antibiotics and a control group received none of the drugs.

Hydroxychloroquine: mortality rate is the highest

The mortality rate of the control group was nine percent. In the patients who were treated with hydroxychloroquine, it was 18 per cent, of those in the chloroquine revenues 16.4 percent. In combination with antibiotics, the mortality rate was even higher at 23.8 percent (hydroxychloroquine) or 22.8 percent (chloroquine).

In the case of a treatment with the Antimalarials, the patient would die, therefore, up to 45 percent higher risk, explained the authors of the study. “For the effectiveness of hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine in Covid-19 there is no scientific evidence. On the contrary, in particular in the case of Covid-19-patients with heart diseases, we observed severe side effects, especially life-threatening heart rhythm disorders,” said Frank Ruschitzka, head of cardiology at the University hospital Zurich.
