Twitter Removes Tweet Reporting 'Hydroxychloroquine' As Treatment For Wuhan Virus

•, By Chrissy Clark

"Lenox Hill in New York among many hospitals already using hydroxychloroquine with very promising results. One patient was described as 'Lazarus' who was seriously ill from Covid-19, already released," Ingraham tweeted.

According to Mediaiate, a Twitter spokesperson said Ingraham's tweet falls under Twitter's "misleading information policy under heightened-risk health claims."

Twitter is censoring the successful use of a drug which is already approved by the FDA.

On Sunday, March 29, the FDA approved the malaria drug for emergency use for patients with COVID-19. According to Yahoo! Finance, the drug is currently being tested in New York hospitals.

According to the FDA, taking hydroxychloroquine sulfate "may benefit certain patients hospitalized with COVID-19 for whom a clinical trial is not available, or participation is not feasible."
