  • An international poll of 6,227 doctors released Thursday found that the antimalarial drug hydroxychloroquine was the most highly rated treatment for the novel coronavirus. Donald Trump issued high hopes of the antimalarial drug earlier this month, mentioning it multiple times during coronavirus press briefings, even claiming that hydroxychloroquine, when used in combination of azithromycin could be “one of the biggest game changers in the history of medicine” in a tweet. As more representatives and those in the medical field continue to come around on the idea of using the drug that is now backed with thousands of testimonies from experienced doctors across the globe, the true scale of its effectiveness for fighting the coronavirus will be revealed in just a matter of weeks.
@ff777:matrix.org@ff777:matrix.orgI want to say some things about hydroxychloroquine: It has a nearly 100% cure rate. It is less than $5 per person (if a place doesn't price-gouge you). It is OUT OF PATENT, meaning it is patent-free now. It is a drug that has been taken by millions of people to treat malaria and arthritis since the 1940s. It usually cures you in 2 days, and by day 6 you test negative for coronavirus in most tests. There is no drug found so far that works better than hydroxychloroquine. It can be a complete game-changer if places/countries would start using it more. Vaccines (once they are made) will have the same problem that flu vaccines have; the virus mutates fast enough that the strain you get in your vaccine probably won't match the strain of coronavirus you get (in the future when there are many more strains of it). The usual dosage of hydroxychloroquine to fight coronavirus is 200mg TWICE a day. Doctors have also been giving people Zinc to help fight the virus, and azithromycin (an anti-bacterial). Hydroxychloroquine supposedly disrupts the outer shell of the virus so that your body can easily recognize and attack the virus. Zinc helps your body to fight it. And azithromycin is to kill off any bad bacteria that has had time to grow in your body while your body was distracted trying to fight the virus.09:31:10
@ff777:matrix.org@ff777:matrix.orgI have to say one more thing about it: I didn't want this channel to get political at all, but some of the democrats in USA have been calling hydroxychloroquine the "trump cure" and many of them don't want to see it successfully work because they don't want trump to look good. This is why democrat governors in the states of Nevada and Michigan have banned hydroxychloroquine in their state; they seemingly would rather more people in their state needlessly die rather than admit that trump might have been right about some thing. (although i think the michigan person recently decided to use it after all.)09:34:52
@ff777:matrix.org@ff777:matrix.org Two days ago, Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, who initially prohibited doctors from using the antimalarial treatment for the coronavirus, asked the federal government for supply of hydroxychloroquine in a stunning reversal of policy. 09:35:55
