Chloroquine doesn’t work for coronavirus, see why?

According to a new study published on Monday from Journal of America Medical Association which shows that the virus doesn’t respond to chloroquine. It rather exposes the patient to heart conditions as one of the complications of the drug.

Researchers at the University at Albany looked at 1,438 patients with coronavirus who were admitted to 25 New York City area hospitals. After statistical adjustments, the death rate for patients taking hydroxychloroquine was similar to those who did not take the drug. The death rate for those taking hydroxychloroquine plus the antibiotic azithromycin, was also similar.

However, the patients who took the drug combination were more than twice as likely to suffer cardiac arrest during the course of the study.

This study likely won’t be the last word on the drugs. Researchers at the University of Washington, New York University and other centers are still testing the drug in patients.
