WHO Expects Hydroxychloroquine Safety Findings In June

The World Health Organization on Tuesday promised a swift review of data on hydroxychloroquine.

This review should be available probably by mid-June, reports Reuters.

Safety concerns prompted the group to suspend the malaria drug’s use in a large trial on COVID-19 patients.

A final decision on the harm, benefit or lack of benefit will be made once the evidence is reviewed.

There are already 17 countries currently studying it under a group called Solidarity.
