Baseline use of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) in systemic lupus erythematosus does not preclude SARS-CoV-2 infection and severe COVID-19.

 

These efficacy data establish that patients with lupus on baseline therapy with HCQ are not universally protected from COVID-19. BMJ Journals, Ann rheumatologist Dis, 05/07/2020. (Also see Treatments for Lupus)

Morning - very useful information as Gareth has been on Plaquenil for 13 years.  I was silently hoping it would offer some protection as he also has immune deficiencies, too.

Stay safe and healthy, everyone.
