Hydroxychloroquine cut death rate 'significantly' - Trump

United States President Donald Trump took to Twitter to note the Henry Ford Health System had revealed hydroxychloroquine proved to be effective in treating COVID-19, going on to urge the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to act on the findings, as the drug allegedly "cut the death rate" in some patients "significantly."

"The highly respected Henry Ford Health System just reported, based on a large sampling, that HYDROXYCHLOROQUINE cut the death rate in certain sick patients very significantly. The Dems disparaged it for political reasons (me!). Disgraceful. Act now @US_FDA @TuckerCarlson @FoxNews," Trump wrote.

Previously, the FDA had decided to revoke emergency use authorization for hydroxychloroquine as a treatment for the coronavirus, claiming the malaria medication in question produced little evidence of being effective against the disease, and that the benefits no longer outweighed the "serious side effects" it would cause.
