Sisolak banned the use of hydroxychloroquine for Nevada patients with CV19. But a new study, set to be published in the International Journal of Antimicrobial Agents in December, found that “Low-dose hydroxychloroquine combined with zinc and azithromycin was an effective therapeutic approach against COVID-19.” The result was 84% fewer hospitalizations for patients treated with controversial drug hydroxychloroquine. As reported in the Washington Examiner: A total of 141 patients diagnosed with the coronavirus were treated with the three-drug cocktail over a period of five days and compared to a control group of 377 people who tested positive for the virus but were not given the treatment. The study found that “the odds of hospitalization of treated patients was 84% less than in the untreated patients,” and only one patient died from the group being treated with the drugs compared to 13 deaths in the untreated group.
