Is hydroxychloroquine effective in treating COVID-19?

Several studies have evaluated the use of hydroxychloroquine in treating COVID-19. Current best available evidence does not show clear benefit of hydroxychloroquine. The Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA) treatment guidelines for COVID-19 recommend hydroxychloroquine use only in the context of a clinical trial.
