    New Study Makes Discovery About Controversial Drug Hydroxychloroquine (westernjournal.com)
    Reduced the number of people being hospitalized by a significant amount in the US with no side effect.

    The drug was used in the early months of the pandemic as clinicians were desperate to help patients.

    Physicians throughout the Hackensack Meridian Health system reported that of over 100 people who received the drug from March to mid-May, one in five ended up in the hospital.

    Do you think this drug was only questioned because Trump said it would work?
    Yes No

    One in three people who did not receive the drug were hospitalized.
    Ip added that there are also no reports of cardiac arrhythmia after using the drug, which is a potential side effect.

    “I’ve gotten messages from doctors saying [the study] supports what they are seeing in their clinics,” he said.

    American doctors lost prestige for their political message. The French led the way on this medicine in the west. The Nigerians led the way in Africa.

    Fauci and his medical group are responsible for Covid, not only the creation of the virus in China Wuhan, but also the epidemic he caused, he made it worse.

    Biden by executive order has outlawed calling it the china virus.‍

    I call it the China virus so I suppose that Biden will send the FBI for me in the dead of the night.

    You are being watched. What you say goes right back to government organizations if you use interconnected technologies of big tech.
    Do you think the smart phones are listening all the time for key words? They are never off unless the battery is dead. Maybe even turning it off is not off.
    I have an Echo Show 8, and recently found all conversations with the device are recorded and stored on Amazon servers. It is constantly listening, and it has a camera.

    I think that we should call it the Biden virus. Thousands of people have died of the virus since Biden took office. He said that he had a plan. Why did he say that he had a plan when he didn’t have a plan?

    While we're at it, we can renaming Disease after the scientist that discovered/found a disease:

    1. Crohn’s disease
    Crohn got the first choice among his fellow researchers to have this inflammatory disease to be named after. The disease was discovered in 1932 by three NY based physicians. However, Burill Bernard Crohn was the first author of the paper and thus the disease was named after him.
    2. Salmonellosis
    Daniel Salmon never thought that his name would be associated with the deadly Salmonella that causes the Salmonellosis. Theobald Smith who was in the research team of Daniel Elmer Salmon in the year 1885 discovered the Salmonella. However, the teammates decided to honor the boss and named that pathogen after his name.
    3. Parkinson’s disease
    Parkinson was a learned fellow who was master of multiple languages and various streams of science. He was active in politics and his name figured in a group of people alleged to be behind the assassination plot of King George III. However, after that brief turmoil, his focus shifted to medicine where he published a paper on Shaking Palsy that was named after him in 1817 as Parkinson’s disease.
    4. Huntington’s disease
    George Huntington was an average researcher with excellent reputation. In 1872, Huntington graduated from medical school and published a paper on a specific neurodegenerative hereditary disorder. The disease is named after him.
    5. Alzheimer’s disease
    This disease created quite a furor when film makers made some classics out it. However, the disease got its name from the Alois Alzheimer who was studying a patient with memory disorder in a Frankfurt asylum. Alzheimer dissected the patient’s brain after her death and presented the serious disease that is now named after him.
    6. Tourette syndrome

    Tourette never thought that the neurodegenerative disorder will be named after him. He named it Maladie Des Tics, but the Supervisor of Tourette thought otherwise and named that hard-pronounced disease as Tourette syndrome. Tourette was never successful in treating this disease and got even shot in his head by a suffering patient. However, he survived and so is his name after the disease.
    7. Hodgkin’s lymphoma
    Thomas Hodgkin of Britain first identified the lymphoma in 1832 in his studies on spleen and glands. The disease was categorized as cancerous melanoma but Samuel Wilks rediscovered the disease and named it after the original discoverer.
    8. Bright’s disease
    The disease is no eye disease. The disease was actually named after Richard Bright who discovered this kidney disease in 1927. The disease was later found to be bunch of smaller diseases, so the name is rarely used nowadays.
    9. Addison’s disease
    Thomas Addison was colleague of Bright and Hodgkins. He discovered the Addison’s disease in 1855. The disease is an Adrenal gland disorder. The Guy’s hospital has a big place in medical history as founder hospital of so many diseases.
    10. Tay-Sachs disease
    In 1881, Warren Tay was a British Ophthalmologist, who first discovered the disease with red spots on eye’s retina. Bernard Sachs, who in 1887 found the root cause of the disease, further researched the disease. The medical community however decided to give commemoration to both Tay and Sachs for their useful contribution and named the disease after both of them.
    11. Turner syndrome
    Turner Syndrome is a genetic chromosomal disorder. In the year 1938, Henry Turner first identified the disease and found the root cause behind it. Later, the condition was named after him for his useful contribution in identifying the disorder.
    12. Klinefelter’s syndrome
    Harry Klinefelter, an endocrinologist from Boston identified the genetic disorder of men having a pair of X chromosomes with Y chromosome. Later the disease was named after him with the efforts of his mentor Dr. Fuller Albright.
    13. Asperger’s syndrome
    Autism is a serious disease among children. However, the founder of the disease, Hans Asperger never got any recognition as his work was mostly in German. The recognition came in 1981 when the work was redrafted and published in English. He studied nearly 400 children to identify the disease.

    Here is the AMJ article talked about in the first post which not a study at all but a proposal for a protocol for treating patients before they need hospitalization or early in hospitalization with drugs like HCQ. It references previous studies to support its position, the most recent for HCQ from July 2020. So no new data

    Here is the article referenced in the 2nd post which is an article from BMC Infectious Disease publishing data from Hackensack Meridian Health. It was a retrospective study looking at mildly symptomatic out of hospital patients. Here is the abstract.

    Hydroxychloroquine in the treatment of outpatients with mildly symptomatic COVID-19: a multi-center observational study

    Of the 97 patients that received HCQ compared to the 1177 that didn't, there was a lower percentage that went to hospital but a higher percentage that developed arrythmia.

    This is their conclusion:

    Biden is so Stalinesque in his attention to the great reset, which he calls build back better from Boris Johnson. He is a devotee of Davos and the leader Klaus Schwab, another George Soros but with even better German credentials. So it is no surprise that Biden grovels at the feet of Xi Jinping, who has given Biden and his son tens of millions of dollars in business deals. How else could Biden have 5 mansions on a government paycheck? Of course, Biden got his start on Russian money through the DC Soviet lobby Council For A Livable World.
