As you know, last week the Executive Group of the Solidarity Trial made a decision to implement a temporary pause of the hydroxychloroquine arm of the trial, because of concerns raised about the safety of the drug.
The Data Safety and Monitoring Committee of the Solidarity Trial has been reviewing the data.
He said that based on the available mortality data, the members of the committee recommended that there are no reasons to modify the trial protocol.
The Executive Group will communicate with the principal investigators in the trial about resuming the hydroxychloroquine arm.
