London - Sana
A committee of experts at the World Health Organization recommended that the drug hydroxychloroquine not be used to prevent corona virus, stressing that it does not have a significant impact on the infected.
Reuters quoted the team of experts as saying that "the anti-inflammatory hydroxychloroquine should not be used in the emerging virus, as it is not worth the effort to search for further studies."
The experts explained that this recommendation is based on evidence of a high degree of certainty that they reached through six randomized trials that included more than six thousand participants, confirming that this drug is no longer a priority in research and that resources should instead be directed to evaluating other promising drugs to prevent Corona .
The organization is issuing guidance that can be updated as new evidence emerges to advise doctors and health care providers on how to deal with this respiratory illness and help them make better decisions about patients.
