The story

Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ), sold under the brand name Plaquenil among others, is a medication used to prevent and treat malaria in areas where malaria remains sensitive to chloroquine. Other uses include treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and porphyria cutanea tarda. It is taken by mouth. It is also being studied as a treatment for coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), although evidence for its efficacy is lacking. The US Food and Drug Administration has warned against taking the drug outside of a hospital or formal study, citing 'serious and potentially life-threatening heart rhythm problems'.
