Directed Treatment

Current Clinical Management

At present, no drug has been proven to be safe and effective for treating COVID-19

Current clinical management includes infection prevention, control measures and supportive care

Chloroquine & Hydroxychloroquine

Currently, best evidence failed to demonstrate or to exclude a beneficial effect of chloroquine or hydroxychloroquine on clinical progression of COVID-19 or on viral clearance by PCR tests

Furthermore, several case reports and 2 studies have described significant QT prolongation illustrating the high risk for clinically relevant arrythmias for this treatment

Until new information is provided, chloroquine or hydroxychloroquine treatment is not recommended at HGH
