France Sanctions Chloroquine After 78 Of 80 Patients COMPLETELY Recover From COVID-19 Within Five Days

The French government has officially sanctioned the malaria drug chloroquine to fight the SARS-CoV-2 virus, France 24 English reported Saturday.

“This ensures continued treatment of patients who have been treated for several years for a chronic condition with this drug, but also allows a temporary authorization to allow certain patients with coronavirus to benefit from this therapeutic route,” France’s Director General of Health Jérôme Salomon said.

The French move came after Didier Raoult, an infectious diseases specialist, reported that clinical results show 78 of 80 patients treated with chloroquine recovered within five days,.

This was Dr. Raoult’s second successful treatment against the coronavirus.

According to Trustnodes.

Doctors in France now will finally be able to treat patients with Didier Raoult, a renown doctor that specializes in infectious diseases, announcing new clinical results that show out of 80 patients treated with chloroquine, 78 recovered within 5 days.

That’s considerably more than the usual 14 days and for some it can go up to 28 days if they recover at all.

The Minister of Health, Olivier Véran, further said on Thursday that doctors can now prescribe chloroquine both in hospital and for home usage:

“Hydroxychloroquine and the combination of lopinavir / ritonavir may be prescribed, dispensed and administered under the responsibility of a doctor to patients affected by Covid-19, in the healthcare establishments which take charge of them, as well as for the continuation of their treatment if their condition allows it and with the authorization of the initial prescriber, at home.”

In America considerable politics has developed over chloroquine, but New York should be out with the results on Monday which may lead to a US wide sanctioned usage of treatment.

On Thursday, France’s Minister of Health Olivier Véran said: “Hydroxychloroquine and the combination of lopinavir/ritonavir may be prescribed, dispensed and administered under the responsibility of a doctor to patients affected by Covid-19, in the healthcare establishments which take charge of them, as well as for the continuation of their treatment if their condition allows it and with the authorization of the initial prescriber, at home.”

The liberal Washington Post reported on Thursday that New York is using the drug as treatment.

“New York will use three medications — hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine in combination with the antibiotic azithromycin — contributed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency and Amneal Pharmaceuticals,” The Post said, citing state officials. “The first wave of patients will receive hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin.”

This “successful” trial of chloroquine has already been refuted. It was not peer reviewed. Worse, one of its co-authors is also an editor of the journal that published it. The trial was not rigorous, the protocols inadequate.

Read that too and though it’s not a proper rigorous study I wouldn’t discount out of hand as a tissue of lies. Shouldn’t take long to do a more rigorous study or even if prescribed without it’s going to take a week before we know if there’s anything to it.

Intravenous vitamin C is highly effective and even in China the doctors found patients up and running after a few days. But that makes no money for Big Pharma and of course that’s one of the reasons for this manufactured panic. As someone in England has said: ‘with this level of control, which is effectively house arrest, where are all the bodies to justify it?’

The only report of this comes from one doctor, Dr Cheng, who is the editor of Orthomolecular Medicine News in China. His links are often dubious and do not say what he says they do. A paper of his on the use of vitamin C claims that one study showed a 97.8% decrease in the hospital stay of patients. Reading it, the actual figure is 7.8%. There is currently a clinical trial happening in China using 24g vitamin C per day on covid patients but the results are not out yet. The official guidelines from the Chinese health authority does… Read more »

Vaping ethyl alcohol (Ever-clear) is probably a better treatment. The virus doesn’t like alcohol and vaping is direct to virus treatment….or preventative.

That is not “treatment”, and it may well cost someone their life. Stop spreading unverified claims about untested and potentially dangerous, or even lethal, “treatment” methods.

The problem with this is that they don’t have any chloroquine or HCQ. Their entire stocks disappeared and the Drug Dealers said it will take “weeks” to replenish them at a unknown cost.

Try vaping ethyl alcohol. Puts alcohol at the point to entry for the virus.

Information such as this ought not to be shared publicly. The last thing we need is for people to self-medicate.

This needs correction – Hydroxychloroquine is the drug we are talking about, NOT chloroquine. Is this where Trump got his information from?
