Hydroxychloroquine & azithromycin plus zinc: outcomes in hospitalized COVID-19 patients

Study performed in New York City:

After adjusting for the time at which zinc sulfate was added to our protocol, an increased frequency of being discharged home (OR 1.53, 95% CI 1.12-2.09) reduction in mortality or transfer to hospice remained significant (OR 0.449, 95% CI 0.271-0.744).
