Ohio pharmacy board backs down on banning drug for COVID-19

Published: August 7, 2020

COLUMBUS (AP) - The Ohio pharmacy board reversed course last week and tossed a rule that would have prohibited use of a malaria drug for patients with COVID-19. The decision followed public feedback and a request by Gov. Mike DeWine to ditch the rule.

At issue was the prescribing of the drug hydroxychloroquine, whose effectiveness for the coronavirus has been widely questioned. On Wednesday, July 29, the pharmacy board banned its use as a coronavirus treatment, noting that the Food and Drug Administration previously revoked the emergency use of the drug.

The FDA "made this determination based on recent results from a large, randomized clinical trial in hospitalized patients that found these medicines showed no benefit for decreasing the likelihood of death or speeding recovery," the state pharmacy board said.

But on Thursday, July 30, FDA Commissioner Dr. Steven Hahn said on NBC's "Today" show that the drug's use should be between doctor and patient. DeWine said he agreed with that assessment.

The board of pharmacy's process in issuing the rule "fundamentally flawed" because a full hearing that sought out additional medical advice should have been held, the governor said at his recent afternoon briefing.

DeWine said he should not be taking a medical position as governor on using the drug to treat patients. He said there's a distinction between that issue and his decision to order mask-wearing statewide.

While there's "no credible minority view on masks," there's some information suggesting hydroxychlorine possibly has value when used with other drugs, DeWine said.

"There's a fundamental difference between when it's overwhelming evidence in regard to the mask, and in a case where it's a question of what a doctor should prescribe to an individual patient," the governor said.

The pharmacy board said it decided to roll back the rule as "a result of the feedback received by the medical and patient community and at the request of Governor DeWine." It plans to reexamine the issue along with the state medical board.

On Tuesday, July 28, President Donald Trump once again promoted the use of the drug when he retweeted a viral video of a group of doctors promoting the use of the drug. Both Twitter and Facebook have removed the content in efforts to keep the sites free of harmful misinformation about the virus.

The number of daily coronavirus cases reported by the Ohio Health Department remains high, including 1,733 cases reported last week, the highest one-day total to date.

Also last week, the Health Department said an all-time high of 1,122 COVID-19 patients were being treated in Ohio's hospitals on Tuesday, July 28, including 348 in intensive care and 174 on a ventilator.

The number of patients on a ventilator was up to 179 last Thursday, according to the COVID Tracking Project.

"Ohioans have worked hard to slow the spread of this disease," said Lance Himes, the agency's interim director. "However, these numbers are a stark reminder that this virus is very much still with us."

In response, DeWine said he's asked the state liquor control commission to hold an emergency meeting to stop the sale of alcohol at bars and restaurants at 10 p.m., with consumption of already purchased drinks ending by 11 p.m.

The governor is also asking the board to increase to three the number of alcoholic drinks that can be purchased with each takeout order.

In Columbus, a judge last week quickly shot down a city order closing bars and restaurants at 10 p.m., setting a hearing in two weeks where evidence can be presented for and against such a shutdown.

Columbus Mayor Andrew Ginther and City Attorney Zach Klein say the order is needed because compliance with social distancing worsens late at night.

Franklin County, home to Columbus, has reported 16,311 confirmed and probable coronavirus cases, the most of any county in Ohio.
