This article shows how hydroxychloroquine, even at high doses, has no effect on the viral load of patients with SarsCov-2. Hydroxyloroquine was used for the first few weeks and then, also in light of the results reported in the research, it was eliminated from the hospital protocols.
This was announced by Professor Matteo Bassetti , coordinator of the GECOVID research group for the part of infectious diseases, a group that to date has published as many as 14 scientific articles in peer-reviewed journals with high impact index on COVID- 19 and SarsCoV-2 and is preparing to publish 15 others.

Data released yesterday by the Ministry of Health tell us that ICU patients (48) and in other hospital wards are continuously decreasing. This compared to an increase in the number of subjects who tested positive for SarsCov-2 or rather, for the majority, asymptomatic, healthy carriers of viruses. It is clear that today everything is very different from 5 months ago.

These are numbers. No hypotheses and assumptions. “
