SALT LAKE CITY – In a story April 24, 2020, about states stockpiling the drug hydroxychloroquine, The Associated Press erroneously reported that 200 patients in South Dakota were being treated with the drug. Sanford Health says that as of Tuesday, there were 200 patients who have recovered from COVID-19 in a registry, and that some of them may have taken hydroxychloroquine, but it was not a requirement.
