Hypothesis: Restrictions on Hydroxychloroquine Contribute to the COVID-19 Cases Surge was published in WUWT on July 5, 2020.
The main thing about Hydroxychloroquine treatment for COVID-19: HCQ+AZ given early. They are administered together in the early, viral stage of the disease, before the viral load reaches its maximum (around 5 days after onset of symptoms) or even overwhelms the body. Individually, HCQ & AZ have some antiviral activity against Wuhan coronavirus. However, administered together, they have a synergistic effect, and are very strong antiviral. Zinc is for a bonus effect. I think that the synergy created by combining HCQ+AZ is what Dr. Fauci and other knowledgeable doctors missed.
The spike in new cases in Texas after June 15 is very pronounced. Florida and Arizona had a rise in new cases since June 1. I think it is caused by the fear to use HCQ, caused by the FDA. In any case, an early HCQ+AZ (+Zn) treatment is an effective measure to prevent spread of COVID-19.
Dr. Zelenko tweeted today:
Each day I get emails from people who want prescriptions for hydroxychloroqiune, azithromycin, etc. … Doctors won’t prescribe because it’s become so political
Big Tech Pandemic was published in WUWT on June 8, 2020.
Other than typical cold/flu medications (acetaminophen, anti-histamines, etc.) to treat COVID-19, physicians report having recommended or seen recommended to their patients Vitamin C (32%), Zinc (21%), and Vitamin D (19%).
There is a disagreement about vitamin D. One needs to get vitamin D from cod liver oil, wild caught fatty fish, or careful sun exposure. Vitamin D in supplements might be not effective.
In terms of overall efficacy, 16% of physicians have seen Vitamin C as effective in treating COVID-19
They probably meant that vitamin C in large doses helps in treating COVID-19.
28% of physicians have recommend taking daily Vitamin C (supplements/fruits/vegetables) to protect themselves from COVID-19
Distributed Denial of HCQ to COVID-19 Victims was published in WUWT on May 11, 2020. Doctors using HCQ for COVID-19 felt under attack. Doctors and Patients Are Pawns in a Dangerous Political Brinkmanship (AAPS, April 27, 2020):
Front-line physicians treating patients with COVID-19 are seeing an alarming, escalating, orchestrated attack on chloroquine (CQ) and its safer derivative, hydroxychloroquine (HCQ).
