100% Cure Rate for Patients Infected with the Coronavirus

President Trump discusses virus wonder drug hydroxy-chloroquine…

President Trump announced that chloroquine has been fast-tracked by the FDA for use in coronavirus patients in the United States. During a Thursday coronavirus press briefing, Trump noted that the drug had been recommended by international teams, and that New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said in a Wednesday night phone call that he wants to immediately deploy it in the state.

The drug, chloroquine, was first approved in the US in 1949, and has been widely used as a low-cost method to treat a variety of diseases, including malaria, lupus and rheumatoid arthritis. In several studies and through anecdotal evidence, chloroquine appears to significantly limit the replication of COVID-19, particularly when combined with antibiotic azithromycin (Z-Pak).

In a study published Wednesday by French physician-researchers, a total of 36 patients (20 who were treated with chloroqine and 16 controls who were not) revealed that 50% of the treated group turned from positive to negative on the third day – which grew to 70% by the sixth day.

Six test patients were treated with both chloroquine and Z-pak, and all six tested negative for coronavirus on day six. “Despite its small sample size our survey shows that hydroxychloroquine treatment is significantly associated with viral load reduction/disappearance in COVID-19 patients and its effect is reinforced by azithromycin.”

Read about this earlier. Not sure it’s a long term cure but anything that helps is a good thing. And at least it’s not a new drug that hasn’t been tested properly.

The conspiracy theorists will have a field day with this. We have created so much stuff in laboratories around the world that there was bound to be some sort of answer coming soon. Now this news out of the US comes the day after the Chinese say no new cases in Wuhan.

This sounds all too convenient.
