The triple-drug combo of the anti-malaria pill hydroxychloroquine, azithromycin and ZINC improved coronavirus patients' chances of being discharged and cut death risk by almost 50%, a study found.
Researchers at NYU Grossman School of Medicine looked at 932 coronavirus patients hospitalized between March 2 and April 5
Half were given a combination of hydroxychloroquine, azithromycin and zinc sulfate and the other half did not receive zinc
Patients receiving the triple drug combination were 1.5 times more likely to recover enough to be discharged and 44% less likely to die
The team believes hydroxychloroquine helps zinc, which has antiviral properties, get into infected cells
Then there is the Professor of Medicine Dr Peter McCullough, who contracted a serious case and treated himself. He has other medical issues including asthma and heart disease but was successful using hydroxychloroquine and other drugs.
In India, where there are high density populations, apparently covid is rife. It was used early in home treatments and deaths per million were less than 100. In America deaths at that time were 800
He emphasised that It is not used by itself and has to be early home treatment.
"Hydroxychloroquine really works," says Professor of Medicine Dr Peter McCullough, describing the treatment as “the most widely used therapeutic” to treat COVID-19 in the world. “The chances that it doesn’t work are calculated to be one in 17 billion,” he told Sky News. “There’s no controversy over whether or not hydroxychloroquine works. The controversy is on the public health approach to COVID-19." Mr McCullough said “the virus invades inside cells, so we have to use drugs that go inside the cell and work to reduce viral replication". “The drugs that work within the cell and actually reduce viral replication are hydroxychloroquine, Ivermectin, doxycycline and azithromycin”. “Sadly, in the United States and I know in Australia this happens all the time, patients get no treatment whatsoever. They literally are told to stay at home until they are sick enough to go to the hospital” “I think that honestly it’s atrocious. History will look back on that and think it was the worst way to handle a potentially fatal illness."
It is not used long term, it has been around and widely used with few contraindications for 65 years.
