Here’s some upsetting news that has us questioning the science: The Ohio Board of Pharmacy has banned the use of hydroxychloroquine as a treatment for COVID-19, although it can still be used in clinical trials.

Cleveland 19 News reports that as of Thursday, “pharmacies and clinics will be banned from dispensing or selling the drug.” We really hope they mean “banned from selling the drug as a treatment for COVID-19,” because hydroxychloroquine has been safely been prescribed off-label for things such as lupus. And even then, what we really hope is that this is just a big misprint and there’s not really a ban.

Unreal.
