A malaria drug taken by U.S. President Donald Trump to prevent COVID-19 did not show any benefit versus placebo in reducing coronavirus infection among healthcare workers, according to clinical trial results published on Wednesday.

The study largely confirms results from a clinical trial in June that showed hydroxychloroquine was ineffective in preventing infection among people exposed to the new coronavirus.

Trump began backing hydroxychloroquine early in the pandemic and told reporters in May he started taking the drug after two White House staffers tested positive for COVID-19. Studies have found the drug to offer little benefit as a treatment.

In the study of 125 participants, four who had taken hydroxychloroquine as a preventative treatment for eight weeks contracted COVID-19, and four on placebo tested positive for the virus.

All eight were either asymptomatic or had mild symptoms that did not require hospitalization, according to the results published in the JAMA Internal Medicine journal.

  1. Of course not because it’s vaccine that this Big Pharma’s “study” need to promote, not something President Trump suggested, esp since Trump cut down on their pharmaceutical prices?

    Have they figured out what Covid-19 is because no doctor seems to know?

  2. Hydroxychloroquine is a MEAN of delivery for ZINC. Zinc fighting virus. Plus antibiotic to fight inflamation. This is Zelenko protocol. NO ONE said hydroxychloroquine alone effective against Covid.
    Search Zelenko protocol.
    Now, ask yourself why this study made…
    What about other “studies”?
    Research yourself before trusting “news”

    • I don’t know enough about hydroxy to know whether or not it contains zinc. But I DO know that antibiotics DO NOT fight inflammation!! They fight bacterial infections ONLY. Not viruses, and not inflammation. Anti-inflammatories and steroids fight inflammation. You have completely discredited your whole ridiculous post.

      • Dear 1:12am seicheless, please study a subject matter BEFORE you develop an opinion. Look up opportunistic secondary bacterial infections – that’s what antibiotics are for. This pertains to all viral infections, not just covid19. We live in a sea of bacteria, who will always seize an opportunity when the immune system is weakened by a virus. Hence antibiotics.
        And, no, HCQ does not contain zinc. Which is why this particular study is useless, as it seems that the study participants were not given extra zinc supplements.

    • this is Newsmax a right-wing source dont be paranoid and ignore medical science because its telling you you made a wrong conclusion. get over yourself it doesn’t help

  3. How about details: was zinc taken as well, how many were on HCQ versus how many on placebo, what was the dosage of the HCQ, were HCQ and placebo groups identical in health/age and exposure to the virus? Besides, 125 total group is too anecdotal to draw any conclusions – a real scientific study needs thousands of people. Basically, this looks like another non-scientific political “study”.
    For now, I’ll trust the data collected by the front line practitioners, such as Dr Zelenko(who has treated way over thousand patients for Covid19, by the way), who claim that HCQ works under certain conditions and in tandem with zinc. Besides, it’s better to err on the side of caution, since Covid19 is a serious disease for some, but HCQ has a 65-year/millions-of-patients safety-record, with no serious long-lasting adverse effects with the dosage used for the corona treatment. Basically, HCQ is way safer than Tylenol – any opposition to this very likely treatment of Covid19 is an evil socialist-fascist plot to sacrifice human lives in order to destabilize our society and consequently usurp the power.

    • Fake News!
      No one ever claimed its a preventive med, rather, it reduces the symptoms and prevents the further damage that Covid causes.

      Some have been taking it just in case they have contracted Covid, and is thus affective on the early stages.

  4. Perhaps it doesn’t PREVENT it. I’m not sure. (But I would be wary of any ‘study’ that comes out nowadays, considering the political climate.)
    One thing I DO know, though: the Zelanko protocol of Hydroxychloroquine together with Zinc and Zythromax – given early enough in the illness and at the right dose – was H-shem’s shaliach to save my close relative’s life when he was very ill from Covid. I know many others who had the same experience.

  5. Dr. Zelenko’s experience in Satmar with over 300 patients contradicts this lie. A doctor in charge of a large medical group also contradicts this story. Many labs want to propagate this lie to make more money on some as yet nonexistent vaccine.

  6. Haven’t they beaten this dead horse to death already. The other mineral and medication that must go along aren’t used, mentioned, and disregarded. Why trust a 60 cent drug when billions of $ are at stake.

    • curious do you think the human diet doesn’t contain zinc? because theirs no reason nobody showed any positive result considering zinc is a active part of a human diet. even if it isn’t a high number of supplementation

  7. I saw this study. They did not give the patients zinc so of course it did not help. Any study that shows hydroxy did not work either gave lethal doses of hydroxy OR did not give Zinc as well, OR did not give the protocol (hydroxy, zinc, azithromycin) early enough in the disease.

  8. Can’t believe how no one cares for the real prevention: always wearing masks, staying home as much as possible, distancing from others.

    • but that requires effort. and that insults peoples egos. so instead do the opposite. jews are supposed to have 3 traits apparently they have 2 because rachamim is not one of them

    • The very best real prevention, which would, IY’H, sharply cut down on Covid and numerous other serious diseases that plague the world is:

      1.) Living in a good clean environment with nothing harmful around. This means no insecticides or other pesticides and no 5G radiation (even 4G and other radiation needs to be limited and contained).

      2.) Totally eliminate all of what is well known as “junk food” and, instead, eat only a good diet of pure organically produced wholesome food.

    • (Continuation of my Remark)

      As it is often not possible to live in a clean environment and to eat a good diet, and thus people are much more susceptible to getting hit — or may have already been hit — by Covid, the old drug Hydroxychloroquine and several natural remedies (for example: Zinc, Quercetin, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Elderberry, Colloidal Silver, and Ozone), IY’H, can greatly prevent and (where already hit) even cure the problem.

      These good remedies thus make it totally unnecessary for the enactment of Lockdowns and Stay-At-Home orders and Mask Wearing and Six-Feet-Distancing.

    • (Continuation of my Remark)

      Lockdowns and Stay-At-Home orders and Mask Wearing and Six-Feet-Distancing DO NOT prevent the Covid disease; on the contrary, they are severely abusive measures for governments to impose on the population. As they stifle and shut down people’s ability to be properly active and productive and to properly communicate, they cause people to gravely deteriorate financially, emotionally, and physically, making them horrendously susceptible to get Covid and countless other diseases that are infinitely more dangerous than Covid.

  9. it doesn’t matter if zinc was taken because their is zinc in the human diet already so hydroxychloroquine should have shown some difference yet it didn’t. stop believing everything you read. medical science has a process yoy dont throw things on the wall and guess.

    • Yes, Zinc certainly SHOULD be in the human diet. However, as I pointed out in my remarks on the above comment, very unfortunately, the contemporary modern human diet is comprised of huge amounts of very poor quality foods with very weak nutritional values. Therefore, vast numbers of people today ARE gravely deficient in Zinc and many other crucially needed minerals and nutrients. And, this is certainly one of the reasons for the widespread problems of many current serious diseases.

      So, as the people who were in this study most probably had very little Zinc in their systems, and no additional Zinc was given to them in the study, then it is understandable that the Hydroxychloroquine that was given to them would help very little.

        somebody in the study would have enough zinc in their diet to effect the results. it would be a feat to manage to avoid all dietary zinc. and yet no positive results.

  10. Dear editor. Please skip the articles that show you as a true hateful liberal. Nobody ever said that hdc prevents covid19. The claim is that it reduces symptoms and avoids hospitalization. You claim “hdc shows no benifit” yet you agree and I quote “All eight were either asymptomatic or had mild symptoms that did not require hospitalization”. Nobody suggested that without hdc you will get ards, the claim is the opposite, with hdc the risk of ards is extremely low. So please keep your disgusting controlling and misinformation to yourself. Please convince yourself of your invincibility before attempting at convincing any rational human being.

  11. Didn’t you hear the latest news? THC (weed) supposedly prevents the inflammatory overreaction to the virus. If it doesn’t work, at least it will make you feel good. Enjoy!

  12. What’s to worry? I got my flu shot so I’m good to go. I’m protected and will live forever. Whe needs masks or social injustice? I’m all vaccinated up. Join me please.

    • or maybe trust that he knows somethjng you don’t. hmmm go get your plumbing advice from the grocer. im sure it won’t be a problem

    • You haven’t got any shame? Can you think what the “diet” in the ghettoes or worse in the camps was? “Poor quality food with very weak nutritional values” is a phrase you are incapable of understanding and should not have the audacity to write. You are a spoiled brat or princess, who never faced reality in your life. I hope you have a soft landing, because most certainly, face reality you will.
