Opinion - The left Is Responsible For Thousands Of Deaths!
Peer-reviewed journal reports hydroxychloroquine can reduce mortality rates in COVID-19 patients
This is proof of how the left has politicized COVID-19! (Do not get me wrong, the right has "overreacted" to the left). But the left, including the "MSM," the Dems and social media, are responsible for thousands of deaths due to COVID-19. All because Donald J. Trump encouraged the use of hydroxychloroquine! OUTRAGEOUS!!!
I have quoted excerpts from the article (below) published by The American Journal of Medicine and a PDF (above) of the article for reference, it is only 7 pages.
The actual article was originally published August 6, 2020.
The Peer-reviewed journal reports:
“...These efforts, although well-justified, have not addressed the ambulatory patient with COVID-19 who is at risk for hospitalization and death. The current epidemiology of rising COVID-19 hospitalizations serves as a strong impetus for an attempt at treatment in the days or weeks before a hospitalization occurs... Hence, it is conceivable that some, if not a majority, of hospitalizations could be avoided with a treat-at-home first approach with appropriate telemedicine monitoring and access to oxygen and therapeutics.
...On May 14, 2020, after about 1 million cases and 90,000 deaths in the United States had already occurred, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) announced it was launching an outpatient trial of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) and azithromycin in the treatment of COVID-19. A month later, the agency announced it was closing the trial because of the lack of enrollment with only 20 of 2000 patients recruited. No safety concerns were associated with the trial. This effort serves as the best current working example of the lack of feasibility of outpatient trials for COVID-19. It is also a strong signal that future ambulatory trial results are not imminent or likely to report soon enough to have a significant public health impact on clinical outcomes.
Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) is an antimalarial/anti-inflammatory drug that impairs endosomal transfer of virions within human cells. HCQ is also a zinc ionophore that conveys zinc intracellularly to block the SARS-CoV-2 RNA-dependent RNA polymerase, which is the core enzyme of the virus replication. The currently completed retrospective studies and randomized trials have generally shown these findings: 1) when started late in the hospital course and for short durations of time, antimalarials appear to be ineffective, 2) when started earlier in the hospital course, for progressively longer durations and in outpatients, antimalarials may reduce the progression of disease, prevent hospitalization, and are associated with reduced mortality. In a retrospective inpatient study of 2541 patients hospitalized with COVID-19, therapy associated with an adjusted reduction in mortality was HCQ alone...0.34, 95% confidence interval...and HCQ with azithromycin 0.29, 95%. HCQ was approved by the US Food and Drug Administration in 1955, has been used by hundreds of millions of people worldwide since then, is sold over the counter in many countries, and has a well-characterized safety profile that should not raise undue alarm.”
So if (apparently) not enough people would participate in the trials discussed in the article, was that because of the Left or the Right? Listen to what the left had to say in the short video (to the right) about HCQ. Things like, "it will kill you!" Because of, and while, the Trump Administration was promoting its' use!
My post was flagged by Facebook "Fact Checkers." THEY ARE STILL CENSORING THE TRUTH!!!! The article in the post is completely accurate and you should be at least half as angry as I am! AND I AM FURIOUS!
