So much for peer review.
The study on which the WHO discontinued research on HCQ was written by a science fiction writer and an adult film performer, neither with any training in epidemiology. with cherry picked data. Yet it got through the Lancet’s peer review until questions were raised by other researchers.
FWIW, I am uninterested in any HCQ study that is not conducted on patients treated early in the disease. It has already been established that when patients are already at death’s door it is too late for it to be of use.
