The latest on hydroxychloroquine: Dr. Didier Raoult met with French President Emmanuel Macron yesterday, and the infectious disease expert sent an update following their meeting.
Professor Didier Raoult, the director of the Research Unit in Infectious and Tropical Emergent Diseases (URMITE) based in the southern city of Marseille, tested the drug on 1,061 patients, with 91.7% having recovered within 10 days, according to reports published by French media outlets and compiled by Anadolu Agency (AA). Among patients between ages 74 and 95, only 0.5% percent lost their lives.
And a reminder: do not seek these medications without the guidance of a doctor.
