Hydrochloroquine banned in France for use against covid-19

The French government on Wednesday banned the use of hydroxychloroquine for the treatment of COVID-19, reversing a previous order from March that allowed the anti-malarial drug to be used as an experimental treatment for the disease caused by the new coronavirus.

The change, reported first by Reuters, is effective immediately. Hydroxychloroquine — approved the US Food and Drug Administration in 1955 — is typically used to treat rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and malaria.

On Monday, the World Health Organization announced it was temporarily suspending the drug's use in an ongoing trial over efficacy and safety concerns. The chief scientist of the WHO said the committee in charge of overseeing the trial, known as the "Solidarity" international clinical trial, said it decided to "err on the side of caution and suspend enrollment into the hydroxychloroquine arm."
