The World Health Company has halted a trial of the anti-malaria drug Hydroxychloroquine – the drug promoted by US President Donald Trump to treat coronavirus – regardless of there being no safety issues reported within the trial.

WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus stated the decision to suspend the trial was out of an abundance of care.

” The Executive Group has actually executed a temporary pause of the hydroxychloroquine arm within the solidarity trial while the safety information is reviewed by the Data Security Monitoring Board,” Mr Ghebreyesus stated.

” The other arms of the trial are continuing.”

President Trump backed the drug and said he was taking it himself to safeguard versus COVID-19
