Coronavirus and Hydroxychloroquine

The good news is the FDA has approved the use of two forms of chloroquin for treating the coronavirus. The bad news is when: for "hospitalized" patients. This may be better than nothing, but the best ways to use the drug appears to be as early as possible after the infection is identified. Apparently the drug, or combination (some studies recommend use combined with another drug), stops replication of the virus but does not kill existing virus. Taking it after the patient is already dying is much less helpful than starting before the virus has taken over.
