Original Message The antimalarial drug hydroxychloroquine did not speed up coronavirus patients' recovery in a trial in China, scientists have revealed.

In a disappointing blow for the promising drug, which is being trialled against COVID-19 in the UK and around the world, doctors said it did not work as a cure.

Patients who were taking it suffered fewer symptoms than others who were treated alongside them without the medication but their recovery time was the same.

It is the second setback in a week for the medication, after a clinical trial in Brazil had to be stopped because patients developed heart problems.

In a scientific paper published online, doctors from across China, including in Wuhan and Hubei, the centre of the coronavirus outbreak, revealed their study's disappointing results.

'The overall 28-day negative conversion rate was not different between [standard care plus hydroxychloroquine] and [standard care] groups,' they wrote.
