A.J,

A friend in life sciences had sent me a graph displaying results from the initial NYC study. I just don't have a mechanism to post the visual but here's my attempt to translate the results:

There were three groups of 19 patients (57 total) in the study.
1. 19 Control patients
2. 19 Received hydroxychloroquine
3. 19 Received hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin

All had tested PCR-positive with nasopharyngeal samples.

After 6 days:
1. 90% of the control group still tested positive
2. 50% of the hydroxychloroquine group tested positive
3. At day 5 NONE of the hydroxy and azithromycin group tested positive

Apparently there are trials now in multiple cities.

Doug
