I have been very disappointed by the Associated Press and the Pilot. They’re careful not to mention the important work of Dr. Raoult in France and Dr. Zelenko here.
Basically, Zelenko says that his hydroxy cocktail, if used in the first five days, has an almost perfect record of nullifying the infection.
If a patient goes another week or two and become really ill, the hydroxy medicine is of little use. However, it was precisely this set of patients that was treated and reported on in the newspapers. So, many people have the impression that the hydroxy approach is not an option. It is the best option.
At this point, I’ll sum up my own conclusions by saying that I trust Zelenko 99% and I trust Fauchi 9%. I have always heard that the pharmaceutical companies are brutal in their quest for profit.
Here are two really smart medical people explaining the situation.
Dr. Zelenko has started something called Crowd Protocol. He hopes to enlist the participation of doctors all around the world. They will report their experiences to help reach a consensus on best treatments.
