The WHO reversal came after its “data safety and monitoring committee” found no reason not to continue the HCQ clinical trial, “on the basis of the available mortality data,” Director-General Tedros Adhanom told a briefing in Geneva.
The medical journal concerned, meanwhile, issued an “expression of concern” about the quality of the study it published earlier.
The Lancet said that pending the outcome of “an independent audit of the provenance and validity of the data” now underway, “we are issuing an Expression of Concern to alert readers to the fact that serious scientific questions have been brought to our attention. We will update this notice as soon as we have further information.”
The short version is that the Lancet published a fraudulent ‘Scientific’ report from a company, Surgisphere Corp, that exists mostly on paper.
Why did this happen? Trump Derangement Syndrome. Everything about Surgisphere Corp stinks. The Lancet did not vet this company. Lancet did not verify anything about the study. WHO did not act responsibly either.
