Doubts about Lancet HCQ/CQ study continue to mount
Following the infamous Lancet study "Hydroxychloroquine or chloroquine with or without a macrolide for treatment of COVID-19: a multinational registry analysis"—which recently prompted the World "Health" Organisation to "pause" its Solidarity Trial of HCQ as a treatment for Covid-19—The Guardian reports that Australian researchers are now disputing the reliability of the Lancet study: "Questions raised over hydroxychloroquine study which caused WHO to halt trials for Covid-19".
Plus this coming out of Columbia University's "Statistical Modelling, Causal Inference, and Social Science" website: "Doubts about that article claiming that hydroxychloroquine/chloroquine is killing people".
And an update: "Hydroxychloroquine update".
(Again, just for the record, I am not medically qualified, and I do not know if hydroxychloroquine is effective or safe for anything whatsoever. But I will say this: if I ever come down with this wretched Covid-19, I would want my GP to be free to exercise their professional judgement and be able to prescribe HCQ for me if they believed it to be beneficial.)
