Hydroxychloroquine and fake news, by Jeremy Gordon

It’s one thing to fudge the coronavirus case and death statistics for political effect, it’s another thing to outright lie about the efficacy of a drug that could save the lives of some coronavirus patients. The one makes you a propagandist, the other makes you a killer. From Jeremy Gordon at theduran.com:

The anti-hydroxychloroquine media has been full of the supposed dangers of hydroxychloroquine and its failure as a treatment for the virus. Does hydroxychloroquine work or does it not, is it safe or dangerous, and should we be using it as a treatment for the virus? Here we examine the evidence for and against it.

A New York doctor Vladimir Zelenko looked at treatments being used in China and Korea and gave it to 405 patients over 60 or with high-risk problems such as diabetes, asthma, obesity, hypertension or shortness of breath. In this high risk group he claimed to have cut hospital admission and mortality rates compared to what could be expected without treatment by 80 to 90%. https://internetprotocol.co/hype-news/2020/04/14/a-detailed-coronavirus-treatment-plan-from-dr-zelenko/

Dr Zelenko sent a letter to President Trump urging him to issue an executive order to roll out the treatment which the FDA was blocking. Trump announced that hydroxychloroquine looked like it could be a “game-changer”, and thus the politicization of hydroxychloroquine began.

Dr Fauci the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases who was supposed to be advising Trump disagreed with him and backed Gilead’s rival treatment Remdesivir. YouTube deleted a video of Dr. Zelenko talking about the treatment on his Rabbi’s channel and despite objections that there was nothing wrong with the video YouTube never reinstated it.

  1. Call your Dr’s office–probably ask for the nurse– to find out what the COVID-19 policy is. Ask what they do if you have the following COVID-19 symptoms such as cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, diarrhea?
    Do you get referred to a COVID-19 testing center? Does the Dr even treat COVID-19 or will you be told to stay at home, isolate, wait for test result, and/or go to ER if you are feeling worse? Does the Dr treat COVID-19 with Hydroxychloroquine, Zinc and possibly Azithromycin (ignore this treatment if you think it is wrong and ask about your favorite drug(s)of choice) based on your symptoms or only after lab result is back?
    I have tried so far with 2 Drs and have struck out. My search continues.
    Early treatment can be obtained e.g. the video below(15 minutes); others of his on Utube, his facebook page.
