A new study shows that the controversial drug hydroxychloroquine touted by former President Donald Trump increased the survival rate of severely ill coronavirus patients.
The observational study, published by medRxiv, found that antimalarial drug hydroxychloroquine, along with zinc, could increase the coronavirus survival rate by as much as nearly 200% if distributed at higher doses to ventilated patients with a severe version of the illness.
The article goes on to state the following:
“We found that when the cumulative doses of two drugs, HCQ and AZM, were above a certain level, patients had a survival rate 2.9 times the other patients,” the study’s conclusion states.
Conducted on 255 patients by Saint Barnabas Medical Center in New Jersey, the study also reports: “By using causal analysis and considering of weight-adjusted cumulative dose, we prove the combined therapy, >3 g HCQ and > 1g AZM greatly increases survival in Covid patients on IMV and that HCQ cumulative dose > 80 mg/kg works substantially better. These data do not yet apply to hospitalized patients not on IMV. Since those with higher doses of HCQ had higher doses of AZM, we cannot solely attribute the causal effect to HCQ/AZM combination therapy. However, it is likely AZM does contribute significantly to this increase in survival rate. Since higher dose HCQ/AZM therapy improves survival by nearly 200% in this population, the safety data are moot.”
When then-President Donald Trump promoted the drug last year, he was mocked and ridiculed, and Donald Trump Jr.’s Twitter account was also restricted when he shared a video of doctors promoting the drug.
Dr. Anthony Fauci, and the World Health Organization warned against using the drug to prevent the coronavirus, claiming data showed it was ineffective.
Now, the new study, posted on May 31, suggests otherwise.

Bryan Dean Wright, a former CIA Ops Officer, tweeted, “Fauci was wrong. Big Tech was wrong. Our smug media was wrong. Trump, as it turns out, was right.”
“Here’s the new study showing the efficacy of weight-adjusted HCQ and AZM therapy for seriously ill COVID-19 patients. It‘s a therapy that Fauci dismissed and the FDA refused to authorize,” Wright added.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) shared a July 2020 report in which Fauci claimed that “valid” scientific data shows hydroxychloroquine isn’t effective in treating the coronavirus.
Referring to the new study, Taylor Greene tweeted, “How many people died bc Dr. Fauci said trust the science and Hydroxychloroquine isn’t effective? New study shows: Hydroxychloroquine + Azithromycin therapy at a higher dose improved survival by nearly 200% in ventilated COVID patients. Trump was right.”
