WHO halts malaria drug in COVID-19 trials

The World Health Organization is discontinuing its trials of malaria drug hydroxychloroquine - and a combination HIV drug - in hospitalized patients with COVID-19 after they failed to reduce mortality.

Saturday's setback came as the WHO reported more than 200,000 new cases globally of the disease for the first time in a single day.

But the WHO on Saturday said the decision does not affect other studies where those drugs are used for non-hospitalized patients or as a prophylaxis.

Last month the U.S. Food and Drug Administration revoked its emergency use authorization for hydroxychloroquine, which President Donald Trump in March touted as a possible game changer, to treat COVID-19.

Another branch of the WHO-led trial is looking at the potential effect of Gilead's antiviral drug remdesivir on COVID-19.

The European Commission on Friday gave remdesivir conditional approval for use after it was proven to shorten hospital recovery times.

Dems: Biden Could Shoot Me on 5th Ave. And I’d Still Vote for Him.

Yahoo News - 12 hours 56 min ago

 Biden Could Shoot Me on 5th Ave. And I’d Still Vote for Him.In a call-back to simpler times—before the unprecedented global pandemic and nationwide civil unrest—supporters of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden have co-opted a notorious joke made by President Trump four years ago on the campaign trail.The year was 2016, and there were just two weeks until the Iowa caucuses. Reality-TV star and real-estate mogul Donald Trump was the Republican frontrunner, and he was, well, confident about his chances.“I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody, and I wouldn't lose any voters, OK?” Trump said, mimicking firing a gun with his fingers, at a campaign stop in Iowa. “It’s, like, incredible.” Afterward, Trump tweeted: “My speech was very well received. Truly great people! Packed house—overflow!”“His audiences love it,” NPR reporter Don Gonyea wrote at the time: “They say, ‘Yeah, sometimes he makes me cringe, but I still like him and I still think he’s the right thing for America.’”But now Biden supporters are co-opting the joke on Twitter, for their own amusement, even jokingly offering to take a bullet themselves in a sign of just how passionate the November election is shaping up to be.“Joe Biden could shoot me in the middle of 5th Avenue& I would apologize to him for using up one of his bullets and then I would crawl on my hands & knees thru invected proven class to the polling place to vote for him on Nov. 3 [sic],” wrote @rmertel. In reply, @PattysYorkie tweeted, “I may have a hard time doing all of that, I’m a little old. But I’ll be damned if I wouldn’t try!”“Joe Biden could shoot me on 5th Avenue & I would ask the ambulance to drop me off at the polls,” wrote @maryruthedk.“Joe Biden could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot Joe Biden and I’d still vote for him,” added @if_you_see_kaye.“Joe Biden can stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot one hundred people and we’re still voting against Trump,” tweeted @FrankXMjr. “The con is up.”“Joe Biden could shoot me on 5th avenue and if I survived I would vote for him, if I didn't my last words would be...he did it in self-defense so vote for Joe,” @Hamsteronstilts wrote.Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.
