Serhat TUNAR -TDO- United States President Donald Trump's promotion of the drugs, which he said were good for coronavirus (Covid-19), drew backlash.
Trump argued on Saturday (yesterday) in his social media account that it was good for Covid-19 disease, naming two drugs whose effects have not yet been proven medically. One of these drugs is known to be tried on only 20 coronavirus patients.
Trump said in a statement: "If Hydroxychloroquine and Azithromycin are taken together, it has a chance to come to a ground-breaking place in the history of World medicine. The food and Drug Administration (FDA) has moved mountains. Thanks. Hydroxychloroquine is more effective in combination with Azithromycin, according to the International Journal of the Antimicrob Agency. I hope both of these drugs will be released immediately. People are dying, hurry up, God bless everyone."
But when we look at the data from the tests of French researchers, which the president of the United States cited in his message, it appears that there were no controlled clinical trials. The drugs Hydroxychloroquine and Azithromycin mentioned also contain anti-bacterial properties and are known to have been tried on only 20 cases of coronavirus.
