A recent study has been published in the International Journal of Antimicrobial Agents and has discovered that a combination of a popular anti-malaria drug called hydroxychloroquine, or Plaqenuil, and an antibiotic called azithromycin could be extremely effective in treating COVID-19 cases. The researchers conducted the experiment on 30 separate cases of COVID-19 and split the total number of patients in three separate groups.

The groups were split into the following categories: One group who just received hydroxychloroquine, another group that received both hydroxychloroquine and the antibiotic azithromycin and the final group who received neither. What they found was that while hydroxychloroquine was effective on its own, the effects of the treatment grew exponentially when hydroxychloroquine was combined with azithromycin. While this study does have a small sample size, the results in these patients, in particular, are quite promising, and could potentially lead to another avenue for treating COVID-19 globally.

Jak's love for technology, and, more specifically, PC gaming, began at 10 years old. It was the day his dad showed him how to play Age of Empires on an old Compaq PC.
