Covid-19:  “The Answer?!?!? Pandemic controlled.  Economy saved.  (April 7, 2020)”  The First Draft Of History A Score Months Later (December 6, 2021)

. . .

This e-mail note was sent on April (4) Seven (7) Twenty Twenty (2020), a score months ago to the date tomorrow, to four score folks who all without exception denied, dismissed, disparaged, disregarded, and denigrated it without hesitation or reservation: 

April 4, 2020

Dear ____________,

The problem is obvious and the answer almost as obvious.  On one hand, it should be forwarded to the world.  On the other, the regimen may not be right for every single person and thus is risky to forward. 

Over the last few days, there has been an explosion of articles and observations made available that this is really a blood disease rather than a respiratory disease.  It is now making sense.  Think mountaineering.  I recall being at 19,000 without oxygen in Nepal in 1985.  In that situation, the blood was able to transport all the oxygen, but there was little oxygen to transport.  The problem with Covid-19 is not that the lungs are unable to deliver the oxygen to the body; the problem is that the blood is not able to deliver the oxygen to the body.  The solution is . . . hydroxychloroquine or chloroquine with zinc and azithromycin.  (I plan to write an more detailed analysis for myself tomorrow to make sure that I understand exactly what I think I understand.)

Pandemic controlled.  Economy saved.

On March 29, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) accepted 30 million doses of hydroxychloroquine sulfate donated by Sandoz, the Novartis generics and biosimilars division, and one million doses of Resochin (medical grade chloroquine phosphate) donated by Bayer Pharmaceuticals, for possible use in treating patients hospitalized with COVID-19 or for use in clinical trials.  These and other companies may donate additional doses, and companies have ramped up production to provide additional supplies of the medication to the commercial market.

The US of A is more than ready for the Plague.



This comment/discussion reflects my conclusions:

“Battlefield Medicine”: Covid-19 Treatment, Chloroquine/Zinc/Azithromycin and Dr. Vladimir Zelenko

To answer your specific question directly, Dr. Zelenko prescribes the chloroquine/zinc/azithromycin treatment as soon as patients show breathing distress.  I am not going to try to summarize all the details, but watching the first ten minutes or so of the video below should give you adequate information.

Here is a letter I put on my Facebook page…I hope it is useful to my friends. Some of my anti-Trump friends reacted along political lines.  Too bad.

“First, here is a link to Dr. Zelenko’s own letter (over a week old now) to the world-wide medical community regarding his use of hydroxychloroquine in combination with zinc and azithromycin to treat Covid-19.

My out-patient treatment regimen is as follows:

1. Hydroxychloroquine 200mg twice a day for 5 days

2. Azithromycin 500mg once a day for 5 days

3. Zinc sulfate 220mg once a day for 5 days

I don’t see any reason why Dr. Zelenko would be misleading us deliberately.  He is obviously a dedicated physician.  He has nothing to gain and a whole lot to lose by speaking out like this.  Zelenko frankly acknowledges that his treatment of hundreds of patients was not a regular clinical trial, it was more “battlefield medicine.”  But we are actually in a war with this thing—so battlefield medicine is appropriate for the situation.

Here is a recent video featuring Dr. Zelenko that describes his efforts to help his patients with this treatment.

Note that Dr. Zelenko prescribes this treatment as soon as anyone shows breathing distress.  If you wait too long, the treatment is not as effective and the outcomes are much worse.

Last week, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved emergency use of chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine as a possible coronavirus treatment, concluding that the potential benefits outweigh the risks. Here is the whole letter from the FDA

And here is the most relevant quote from the letter (top of page 3):

“Based on the totality of scientific evidence available to FDA, it is reasonable to believe that chloroquine phosphate and hydroxychloroquine sulfate may be effective in treating COVID-19,” FDA Chief Scientist Denise Hinton wrote in the approval letter.

“When used under the conditions described in this authorization, the known and potential benefits of chloroquine phosphate and hydroxychloroquine sulfate when used to treat COVID-19 outweigh the known and potential risks of such products.”

The FDA is now directing a number of clinical trials to better understand the efficacy of hydroxychloroquine and other treatments, so we will have such information before too much longer.  Please see the third paragraph of the next letter regarding these on-going trials.

It appears to me that this potentially valuable therapy got politicized the moment President Trump mentioned it weeks ago.  Sadly, a medical issue became a political issue: full bore Trump Derangement Syndrome on display. I wonder how many lives politicization of this issue will cost.

Doctors other than Dr. Zelenko who are using the chloroquine treatment have found the same political issue emerging as they have treated patients. You can read about these other doctors and their experiences at this link.

Hopefully, we will soon have supporting evidence from the clinical trials.”

Please read it through to the bottom and ignore the stuff on the side—typical web clickbait.

I am taking an adult multivitamin, 2500 mg of Vitamin C, 50 mg enhanced zinc with 2 mg copper and 5000 mg of D3.  I am also sporadically taking Echinacea, Olive Leaf, Sambucol/elderberry, a Chaga concoction that a friend prepared and a shot of ETOH that is admittedly AMA.  I am also drinking daily black and green tea with honey including some Manuka honey that may be over-hyped.

At this time and subject to daily reconsideration, if I am in respiratory distress, I will take the recommended regimen of Hydroxychloroquine or Chloroquine combined with Zinc and Azithromycin hopefully in the early stages.  I believe it is the most promising cure.  I will give it a go.  I will not get near a hospital.

For reasons that can be explored, there are alternative medicines for lupus and arthritis that will work for them in the interim.

This is a total mind @#$%.  Donaldo Trumpi may be right.

I will be on the phone and e-mail tomorrow presenting this tentative conclusion to others.
