    Among 568 critically-ill patients treated in a similar manner, 45.8% of those not given hydroxychloroquine died (238/520) versus 18.8% of those given hydroxychloroquine (9/48) — 200 mg twice a day for 7-10 days — according to a retrospective study from China.

    The authors of the study concluded:

    “Hydroxychloroquine treatment is significantly associated with a decreased mortality in critically ill patients with COVID-19…
    Therefore, hydroxychloroquine should be prescribed for treatment of critically ill COVID-19 patients to save lives.”
