The World Is Embracing The Hydroxychloroquine/Azithromycin Cure, But America Lags Behind

The World Is Embracing The Hydroxychloroquine/Azithromycin Cure, But America Lags Behind

Let’s look at the reasons and remedies.

A GLOBAL SURVEY OF MORE THAN 6,200 DOCTORS reveals that hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin* are being very widely used outside the US and is deemed the most effective COVID-19 treatment overall. (See a survey results summary here.)

Unfortunately, the use of this treatment in the USA has been hampered by unconscionable (and irrational and illegal) restrictions on hydroxychloroquine (also referred to as simply “chloroquine”, which was the original form of the drug). Those restrictions were originally imposed:

  • as an expression of institutional arrogance and defense of turf (WE haven’t determined that the treatment works, therefore no one else may proceed as though it does, harrumph, harrumph…);

  • as an expression of “Trump Derangement Syndrome” (because soon after Didier Raoult’s groundbreaking tests of the treatment were posted on this page and others, Donald Trump began tweeting enthusiastically about it, leading those who can’t stand the idea that he could get anything right to reject the treatment out of hand); and

  • in response to a quick blizzard of fake news about the supposed hazards of chloroquine (as discussed, documented and debunked here).

These restrictions have been largely relaxed or lifted over the last week (and some good doctors who properly put their ethical obligations and professional judgment over reflexive subordination to state diktats had been ignoring them anyway). Thus, the roll-out of this cure for the virus infection in America is finally ramping up.

HOWEVER, SOME RESIDUAL EFFECTS of the initial reaction to Raoult’s announcement of the cure (and Trump’s advocacy) persist, with very dangerous consequences. US doctors are in many cases misusing the hydroxychloroquine/azithromycin treatment by withholding it until a COVID-19 victim is at death’s door, whereupon the treatment is given as a sort of a “Hail Mary pass”. This application will fail.

In short, the last-minute application of hydroxychloroquine/azithromycin is an attempt to cure a patient who has already suffered fatal damage to tissues from the prolonged presence of the virus. After the treatment in such cases, there may be no virus left in the patient, but he or she is going to die anyway.

This outcome of ignorance is bad enough. But wait, there’s more and worse. The failure of the misapplication of the treatment will lead to the renewal or persistence of skepticism about the treatment overall.

THE SERMO SURVEY DISCUSSED ABOVE reveals that the misapplication of the hydroxychloroquine/azithromycin treatment I describe is, in fact, the ongoing practice of most US doctors:

Outside the U.S., hydroxychloroquine was equally used for diagnosed patients with mild to severe symptoms whereas in the U.S. it was most commonly used for high risk diagnosed patients.

It must therefore also be feared that this practice of misapplication which leads to discouraging results will taint the recently-begun “officially-sanctioned” clinical tests being conducted in various places around the country. The false conclusions which will be drawn will, in turn, hamper the immediate embrace of the hydroxychloroquine/azithromycin treatment nationwide which SHOULD be taking place (and the immediate abandonment of the insane, illegal and hugely harmful governmental impositions on Americans’ liberties and the American economy to which that roll-out of the cure should lead).

I URGE EVERYONE READING THESE WORDS to share them as widely as possible right away, so as to forestall any of these adverse outcomes. DON’T “leave it to the professionals”, imagining that they will discover what is presented here on their own.

Many of “the professionals” in government have given reason to suspect that they have purposes and agendas which are neither comfortable nor aligned with the information presented here.

Those who are actually doctors working with patients in many cases simply won’t find their way to this information– and no real surprise.

After all, such folks are right now a very weary and overburdened bunch. Further, even at the best of times, they have the deeply-ingrained bad habit of taking direction from centralized governmental institutions which, as noted above, operate on the basis of political motivations and agendas.

IN ANY EVENT, you and I have no business taking it for granted that someone else will seek out, discover and act on this information. This is OUR well-being at issue, and it is largely NOT being optimally-looked-after, as all of the above makes clear.

We must take charge, and be truth conduits.


*NOTE: For some reason probably borne in simple bureaucratic incompetence azithromycin is listed as a separate subject of inquiry within the survey. This makes it appear to the uninstructed reader that the antibiotic is being used by itself to treat COVID-19 patients.

In fact, the use of azithromycin is as a supplement to hydroxychloroquine, as pioneered by Didier Raoult (who keeps on rockin’…), and with a dramatic elevation of the cure rate over hydroxychloroquine alone. But not all treating doctors use the combination, leading to a misleadingly separate rating for the antibiotic in the survey results.

This point should be made to your doctor and local media when passing on this information: BOTH DRUGS SHOULD BE USED TOGETHER FOR BEST RESULTS. There is also good biochemical reason and at least anecdotal evidence in support from a number of treating doctors for the addition of zinc supplements to the treatment regime.
