Questions over Data Used in COVID studies
Two very influential medical journals have issued concerns about the data used in the different coronavirus studies. A study by the Lancet shows that administering the hydroxychloroquine to the coronavirus patients was linked to an increased rate of mortality and causes serious heart rhythm problems.
They published their paper to alert the readers about the fact that serious scientific questions have been brought to our attention.
In another study, it is found that heart disease drugs, ACE inhibitors, didn’t worsen the risk of death for COVID patients. The data used in both of the studies was provided by Surgisphere, which is a public service organization. Surgisphere describes itself as the public service organization dedicated to making the world a better place.
Scientists conducting the studies concluded that data mix up did not affect the results of the studies, which begs the question over the data.
