A trial investigating the drug hydroxychloroquine as a preventative treatment against Covid-19 may never find out if it’s effective, say scientists involved.

Controversy around the drug – touted by President Trump and the subject of online misinformation – is stopping completion of the trial, they say.

It is ineffective in hospitalised patients, but investigators hope it might work if given earlier on.

Hospitals have pulled out of the trial.

‘Intense politicisation and negative publicity’
The Oxford University-led trial is aiming to enrol 40,000 frontline workers around the world.

Investigators hope the large-scale, double-blind randomised study will show if early use of the treatment prevents the virus from getting worse.

“We know now that it doesn’t work in treatment of hospitalised patients,” says Prof Nick White, one of the study’s investigators.

“But it’s still is a medicine that may prove beneficial in preventing Covid-19.”

In this day and age, understanding bacteria and viruses and developing vaccines are national security issues. In my view sizable part of every country’s defense budget should be spent in these pursuits rather than making tanks and other weapons.

  1. God works in this world through science. Those who oppose science including all those who proposed homeopathy, hot water, lemon, and other such non-sense in the wake of Corona virus, stand against God. Results are before everyone to see. Masks, social distancing and frequent washing of your hands will prevent infection, not Chloroquine. Let science work. US president has successfully killed 150,000 Americans and another 150,000 will die before the end of the year.
