French Doctor treats 36 Covid-19 patients with Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) + ZPAK and obtains great results. The worst of this virus could be over in a couple of months if U.S. could secure supply.

TEVA PHARMA RUSHING SHIPMENTS TO U.S.

BAYER SENT U.S. 3 MILLION TABLETS.  

U.S. Surgeon General said chloroquine won't be available until mid summer. WHAT ? 

The excuse is "we need to do trials"

* In reality The U.S. is late to the party.  CAN'T GET SUPPLY !

* South Korea has been using this drug with great success.  THAT'S WHY SOUTH KOREA HAS IT UNDER CONTROL !

* These are existing drugs. We know the safety profile.  A NYC Doctor that has successfully been prescribing the Hydroxychloroquine said supply is dwindling.  Getting hard to get supply.  

* The trial in FRANCE cleared 100% of the trial patients IN 6 DAYS ! The control group that was give placebo did not. 

The results speak for themselves.  The safety profile is already known.  It's currently used to treat malaria, rheumatoid arthritis and lupus.

Your doctor can prescribe it to you off-label now BUT U.S. SUPPLY RUNNING OUT. 

The French tests showed it can both treat and prevent the viral infections.

I checked my local Krogers Pharmacy.  It would cost me only $22 for 60 200mg tablets. 

The successful trial prescribed 600 mg a day for 10 days. For $22 can treat two people.  That's retail. 

The worst of the crisis could be over in a couple of months and minimize the damage to the economy.

If  the virus continued without therapeutics this Chinese virus could cost the U.S. economy $7 to $9 Trillion.  Still could, nothing certain yet. Cutting that in half would be great.

If it works the sooner the better for the economy.  The FDA wants to do some trials to determine the optimal dosage and duration of time.

Oil will benefit only when virus is under control. With a functioning economy the excess oil supply will never come close to the projected 10 mm bbls/day.

Saudis could still go forward with their "Scorched Earth" strategy.  Saudis can't last very long at $30 oil. There would be an insurrection before the end of this year. (might not necessarily be a bad thing). Don't believe their bull____. 

Expect U.S. shale to substantially decrease production.  Shale will be back stronger and better. Saudis still screwed long term.  Can't believe there are no adults in KSA to get control of those Salman brothers, MBS and ABS.  The  King's health is not good.  Maybe after .

Let's see what Trump has to say at today's Covad-19 update.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hydroxychloroquine

Research

Hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine have been recommended by Chinese and South Korean health authorities for the treatment COVID-19.[31] [32] In vitro studies have demonstrated that hydroxychloroquine is more potent than chloroquine against SARS-CoV-2 with a more tolerable safety profile.[33]

On 16 March 2020, advisor to the French Government on COVID-19, Professor Didier Raoult, announced that a trial involving 24 patients from the south east of France supported the claim that hydroxychloroquine was an effective treatment for COVID-19.[34] [35] An amount of 600 mg of hydroxychloroquine (brand name Plaquenil) was administered to these patients every day for 10 days. The drug appeared to be responsible for a "rapid and effective speeding up of their healing process, and a sharp decrease in the amount of time they remained contagious".[36] The study also suggested that taking chloroquine in combination with the antibiotic azithromycin - which is known to be effective against complications from bacterial lung disease - led to even better outcomes. Professor Raoult said the results showed there was "a spectacular reduction in the number of positive cases" with the combination therapy. [37]At 6 days, among patients given combination therapy, the percentage of cases still carrying SARS-CoV-2 was no more than 5%.[38]

On March 17 after testing in several hospitals around Italy the Italian Pharmaceutical Agency has included hydroxychloroquine in the list of drugs with positive preliminary results for treatment of coronavirus disease 2019.[39]

If you start coughing stop taking them; unless you have severe hypertension or heart failure.

In Poland thIs medicine is not available for a few weeks, people somehow got knowledge about it probably directly  from China and bought out all storage from pharmacies and wholesalers.

Also Tonic is being hoarded I do not know why.

If you still has access you can be rich.

But it is also a huge problem as hospitals would need to purchase it abroad or at black market.

A farmer visits his neighbor: "Hey Jimmy, what did you treat your horse with last summer, you know, when he had the gripes?"

"Last summer? Well, I fed him some molasses."

After a month, the farmer visits again:"Jimmy, remember our talk about treating gripes with molasses? I gave some to my horse, and he died a few days later."

"Yep, mine did die too last year."

Yes, which is why we are trying to dissuade my mother from leaving home.

The results are fantastic for the combined Hydroxy-chloroquine and azithromycin protocol.

10 days to clear >90% of patients to the level of no live virus is downright spectacular. 

The covid 19 crisis is now likely to wind down.

Time for the FDA to shut up and get out of the way. Why is it there anyway?

Fast track that despite complaints by the retroviral makers and vaccine makers. Shut up the deep state moochers and their clients. I sense a Monty Python giant foot coming down on the FDA from the White House.

Just be prepared for the most vivid, intense dreams of your life. I took Plaquenil as an anti-malarial many years ago, and it was almost like a psychedelic. I hope it can be made widely available in days. Anyone know the availability? Bayer?

I believe it works by pushing Zinc into the cell, which has proven anti-viral properties. This would be very exciting.

In general, I have been interested in France and its history for years.

Although France has been experiencing considerable problems for 2-3 decades due to excessive socialism and statism, it is one of four great European nations and science in France is at a very high level - for example the Frenchman, among others, received the Nobel Prize for isolating the HIV virus.

So if it's true, it remains for me to tell Viva La France and recognize that I should still be interested in this country because it is not so bad as if the mass protests of the Yellow Vests and the burning of the Notre Dame Cathedral could indicate.

I don't believe China has no new cases. I believe as Breitbart and Epoch Times are reporting, that they simply decided that it is over. Probably relying on herd immunity developed over the last 4 months since the start of the epidemic. Statistical models based on an R0 of 2.6 or so as measured earlier in the pandemic, would have extended the virus to most of the population by now whether at the low speed of the quarantine period, or before quarantine started. The risk of allowing Chinese travelers remains just as high as during the highest reported progression period. 

The Chinese reporting is entirely fictional. They only bother to say something if it is demonstrably false - in order to hide the embarrassing reality.

You say "it is one of four great European nations"

It was one of four great European nations

All the FDA has to do is "APPROVE FOR OFF-LABEL USE". It would take 10 minutes and a signature.

DOCTORS IN THE U.S. ARE ALREADY USING THE DRUG ACROSS THE COUNTRY. CHLOROQUINE IS AN APPROVED DRUG FOR MALARIA, ARTHRITIS, LUPUS.  DOCTORS CAN PRESCRIBE AS "OFF LABEL". THEY ARE ALREADY.  MY DOCTOR IN NYC SAYS SUPPLY IS GETTING LOW.

TRUMP NEEDS TO LOCK IN SUPPLY.

ISRAELI COMPANY TEVA PHARMA IS RUSHING SHIPPING THE PRODUCT TO THE U.S. , BUT NEED TO RAMP UP.  

It typically is mfg in 200 mg pill. The trial standard of care was 600mg/day for 10 days = 30 200mg pills.

Bayer has shipped 3 million 200mg doses that can treat 100,000  patients for the 10 day treatment period. 

You can imagine the volume of of pills you need for even a percentage of U.S. 350 million population.  

Thanks to Bayer for helping. 

You know the real reason for the test kit delays was the CDC wanted to develop their own test kit.  They did , and distributed the first batch, they did not work very well. Start over.
