New medical guidelines call for hospitals and doctors to stop using hydroxychloroquine.

The Infectious Diseases Society of America updated its Covid-19 treatment guidelines last week and strengthened its stance against the use of hydroxychloroquine in the treatment of Covid-19.

It cautioned hospitals to stop using the anti-malarial drug to treat Covid-19 patients, even in the context of a clinical trial.

While the group previously called for limited use of hydroxychloroquine in trials, it now recommends that hydroxychloroquine not be used, either by itself or along with the antibiotic azithromycin, for patients with the coronavirus, even in hospital settings.
