Retrospective 932 patients showing that the addition of zinc to HCQ+AZ reduced mortality / transfer to hospice, ICU admission, and the need for ventilation.
risk of death/hospice, 37.7% lower, RR 0.62, p = 0.002, treatment 54 of 411 (13.1%), control 119 of 521 (22.8%), NNT 10, adjusted per study, odds ratio converted to relative risk, multivariate logistic regression.
risk of mechanical ventilation, 18.0% lower, RR 0.82, p = 0.40, treatment 29 of 411 (7.1%), control 62 of 521 (11.9%), adjusted per study, odds ratio converted to relative risk, multivariate logistic regression.
risk of ICU admission, 23.5% lower, RR 0.77, p = 0.17, treatment 38 of 411 (9.2%), control 82 of 521 (15.7%), adjusted per study, odds ratio converted to relative risk, multivariate logistic regression.
