HCQ, Azithro & Zinc in the Outpatient Setting for COVID
764

Lots of excitement today over this recent article/video about hydroxychloroquine, azithromycin and zinc. We need to take a deep breath and review the literature. Turns out there's no data support that it does work and no data supporting that it doesn't work. Thank you for your support.
