Didier Raoult is in the sights of sixteen learned medical societies. On Sunday May 28, the latter published a column in Le Monde. They denounce treatment with hydroxychloroquine received by several thousand patients from the University Hospital Institute (IHU) in Marseille. A pre-published study last April revealed that 30,423 people who tested positive for Covid-19 had received hydroxychloroquine as part of this trial between March 2, 2020 and December 31, 2021.
“The systematic prescription to patients with Covid-19, whatever their age and symptoms, of drugs as varied as hydroxychloroquine, zinc, ivermectin or azithromycin, on pre-printed prescriptions, is is first carried out without solid pharmacological bases, and in the absence of any proof of efficacy”, write the signatories.
In view of the various data available, the authors of this platform consider that it is “probably (the) largest ‘wild’ therapeutic trial known to date”. Moreover, these prescriptions “have been continued, which is more serious, for more than a year after the formal demonstration of their ineffectiveness”. As a result, learned societies are calling on health authorities to take “measures adapted to the faults committed”, in the name of “patient safety”. Before concluding: “Inaction is no longer an option! “. In April, the Medicines Agency (ANSM) estimated that the use of hydroxychloroquine exposed “patients to potential adverse effects which can be serious”.
