El Centro doctor used Hydroxychloroquine as treatment for COVID-19 patients

EL CENTRO (KUSI) – A doctor in El Centro said he has treated almost 1,700 COVID-19 patients with Hydroxychloroquine, Z pac, and Zinc.

Dr. Brian Tyson from Valley Urgent Care joined Good Morning San Diego to discuss why he uses the controversial drug.

Numerous rigorous tests of hydroxychloroquine, including a large one from Britain and one led by the National Institutes of Health, concluded that the anti-malaria drug was ineffective for treating hospitalized coronavirus patients.

Dr. Tyson said the drug is a safe and successful treatment for coronavirus patients, and explained why he believes there is such strong criticism of the drug from many people on the left.
