(Do you prefer to be intubated but still alive, or dead?)
Death / Primary Outcome
HCQ: 157 / 262 = 60%
No-HCQ: 75/ 84 = 89% !
In other words, COVID patients who developed a respiratory failure in the NY hospital turned out to be 4 times more likely to survive when treated with HCQ!
Why did they choose to study that "composite" and not simply the mortality?
