Stop the killing

Latest Lancet article says hydroxychloroquine should be more widely used. Not to do so will result in needless deaths, as during the last six months.

It’s good to see a politician getting really upset about stupid government policy.

    1. What is the latest on worldwide use of HCQ?

      I noticed the referral to the Lancet study, but that was last spring and summer. First it was not effective, then effective. Then the Ford study which has all but vanished.

      With probably hundreds of thousands of medical and epidemiologists worldwide there must be more info. They can’t all be conspiracists.

      1. The problem is with the FDA.

        Peer reviewed studies of outpatient treatment are nearly impossible and placebos would be unethical anyway.

        HCQ is most effective when given very early, and in combination with Zinc and steroids. But how do you test that?

        Just remember, Tamiflu, which has saved tens of thousands of lives, would fail if tested the same way the FDA has tested HCQ.

          1. From your link

            “Hydroxychloroquine treatment appears to have no increased risk in the short term among patients with rheumatoid arthritis, but in the long term it appears to be associated with excess cardiovascular mortality. The addition of azithromycin increases the risk of heart failure and cardiovascular mortality even in the short term. We call for careful consideration of the benefit–risk trade-off when counselling those on hydroxychloroquine treatment.”

            Note that NO RISK was found in short term use of HCQ unless used with Azithromycin.

            Since early treatment is only 2 weeks and Doxycycline works just as well for opportunistic infection, I see no problem.

            HCQ is safe enough to be OTC in most of the world, and people take it for decades.

          2. Right now. the obstacle to using HCQ in Virginia is Northam’s Dept of Health, hiding behind the fig leaf of the FDA directives.

            So, ask your question of Northam. He could release HCQ in VA with a phone call.

          1. Tsk, tsk. You know the president is not responsible for anything.

            China, Obama, MSM or the Democrats. Those are the choices.
