The key study claiming hydroxycholoroquine is dangerous has been retracted by the New England Journal of Medicine and Lancet.
The journals say after the study was published, more than 100 scientists took issue with it, and it turns out the data cannot be confirmed.
Among other things, the scientists criticized the methodology of the study. They also questioned why the authors refused to identify any of the hospitals that contributed patient data, or even to name the countries where the hospitals are located.
The study's lead author was Dr. Mandeep R. Mehra, a Harvard professor.

While we're at it, watch my report on Fake Science: why top authorities from medical journals say much of what's written in their pages cannot be trusted:
Winston Mitchell says
Thank you...two more sources I don't have to waste time reading anymore.
John H Abeles MD says
There were two different studies retracted - on in each journal
“It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of the New England Journal of Medicine.”
― Marcia Angell
A HARVARD PROFESSOR YOU SAY. WHY AM I NOT SURPRISED. IVY LEAGUE IDIOTS HAVE DONE ENOUGH DAMAGE TO THIS COUNTRY. PERSONALLY, I WILL NEVER AGAIN VOTE FOR AN IVY LEAGUE PERSON RUNNING FOR PUBLIC OFFICE.....INCLUDING DOG CATCHER.
Integrity! do these professors / Doctors know the word and its meaning?

Stan W. says
B-B-B-But the Big Bucks are in the new medicines, not some "old, out-dated" stuff such as hydroxychlororoquine!
I wonder how many lives could have been were it not for believing in and relying upon this study? Can people be any more despicable? One can only assume they did this to try to discredit President Trump, once again. It's a sick society we are living in.
