We’ve been hearing a lot about this combination of drugs and the potential near “miracle” effectiveness in treating COVID19.
Some are even suggesting to take the drugs as a prophylactic (preventative) measure.
So what is the truth and why is it so difficult to prove something which is being touted so strongly be people like Elon Musk and Donald Trump alike?
What it boils down to is that, to date, there is no study to prove the claims made.
This is important because without a randomized study, we can not claim it was the drugs that resulted in an improved outcome.
As we know, COVID19 has a recovery rate in the 99% range. Proving any treatment would have to be randomized across a similar body of patients and compare the results from the two groups. One which receives the treatment, and the other (placebo) group.
On this thread we will try to maintain the latest information on this particular treatment.
