Efectuando una búsqueda en los meta buscadores de Pubmed, HINARI y Scielo con los términos “prophylaxis” “Hydroxychloroquine” y “COVID-19” enlazados por el operador booleano AND, de igual forma se utilizaron los términos “Chloroquine” “prophylaxis” y “COVID-19”, enlazados por el operador booleano AND. La búsqueda con el término “Hydroxychloroquine” no arrojó ningún resultado, mientras que la búsqueda con el término “Chloroquine” arrojó dos publicaciones en HINARI, de las cuales se descartó una por no mencionar el uso de la cloroquina (o la hidroxicloroquina) como alternativa terapéutica. Con respecto al uso como profilaxis para prevenir la infección por SARS-CoV-2 con CQ o HCQ, no contamos con evidencia que permita extrapolar o tan siquiera recomendar un esquema con tales fines.
