Hydroxychloroquine, Covid-19 And The Scare Tactics
Hydroxychloroquine, Covid-19 And The Scare Tactics
Every single time the anti-malarial drug, Hydroxychloroquine, is mentioned in connection with Sars Covid-19, the media and medical experts scream in horror. Is this a dangerous drug? Does it have efficacy in the treatment of Covid-19? What are the problems with its use? Nobody will ask the questions because of the scare tactics and derision that will be heaped upon the questioner. The Cancel Culture zealots leave no room for questions or doubt. Once a subject, science, law or today’s weather, is considered settled, no questions are allowed.
This morning, a high school friend posted some interesting information on Uganda, Hydroxychloroquine and Covid-19. I will not use her name, but she is quite credentialed. Her Ph.D. is in biochemical endocrinology, her post-doctoral work studied receptors and viruses in and on cells, and purification of proteins, RNA and messenger RNA. She is one of the authors in a study on Glucocorticoid Receptors. In other words, she knows about this sciencey stuff. I do not.
Now about Uganda. Uganda, not a first world country, has a population of 45 million. The country has 1140 confirmed Covid-19 cases, and two (2) deaths. Uganda treats Covid-19 with Hydroxychloroquine, Azithromycin, and Zinc. Whether or not you believe in this therapeutic regimen, you have to have questions, right?` Malaria is a huge health problem in Uganda and what is the main therapeutic for Malaria? Go ahead and shout it out. Any way, my high school friend’s big brain got me thinking about this “controversial” therapeutic.
Here in the good old U.S.A., just saying the word Hydroxychloroquine will get you shunned, cancelled and/or fired.
Speaking of Sub-Saharan Africa and getting cancelled, let’s talk of Dr. Stella Immanuel. Dr. Immanuel is one of a group of doctors who promote the use of the malaria drug as a therapeutic for Covid-19. She was born in Cameroon and received her medical degree in Nigeria. She is also a Christian pastor. To say that Dr. Immanuel has some different religious beliefs is a definite understatement. I saw on social media some of the most wypipo, snarky Karen comments. Something about demon lizard people. I will let Kenzie Bryant of Vanity Fair “whitesplain” it for you:
Understanding how “demon sperm” entered the discourse should start, I suppose, with the woman who inadvertently introduced the phrase to the broader public in the first place, pediatrician and fire-and-brimstone-type minister Stella Immanuel. The Houston doctor joined the group of other medical professionals on Monday in D.C. in what they’ve called the “White Coat Summit,” a Tea Party–driven gathering meant to drive a wedge of distrust into COVID-19 consensus. They have some pretty kooky ideas in general. Immanuel, for example, recounts in sermons and books the devil’s various plots to take over the world, which is obviously wrong because as I stated above, we are already living in hell.
Kenzie makes me not want to be a wypipo anymore. I am going to call myself Pinkish. Kenzie Bryant represents the highly intellectual refutations of hydroxychloroquine we have come to expect from the wokerati. What happened to all cultures and beliefs are equal?
With Dr. Immanuel at the White Coat Summit was Dr. Simone Gold. Dr. Gold was fired for attending the Summit. In this video, Dr. Gold talks about this whole kerfuffle:
Yes, Dr. Gold said that pharmacies are refusing to fill prescriptions for Hydroxychloroquine. I don’t understand everything she said about heart arrythmia, but many drugs are contra-indicated for certain patients. Have you ever read the insert that comes with a new prescription. Yeah. I take Levothyroxine for hypothyroidism. Here are the adverse reactions listed for that life-saving drug:
Ruh, roh, Shaggy. There is that scary word arrythmia. Which is why when you take any drug, your doctor will monitor the effects. Duh. Also, some of the adverse effects were found in .00000001% of the population.
The favored therapeutic drug of the “medical professionals” advising President Donald Trump on Covid-19 is Remdesivir, which is priced at $0.93/day per patient. Hydroxychloroquine is priced at less than $0.08/day. Things that make you go hmmmm?
Two years ago, President Donald Trump signed the “Right to Try Act”. This act gave terminally ill patients the right to try unproven therapeutics. Wouldn’t an off-label use for a 50 year old drug fall into this category?
Finally, we have no vaccine for AIDS or the common cold. How can the experts develop a vaccine for a novel virus so quickly?
Every citizen of the United States deserves answers to the questions I asked at the start of this article: Is this a dangerous drug? Does it have efficacy in the treatment of Covid-19? What are the problems with the use of Hydroxychloroquine?
If we had any real journalists in all of the media, we might have someone digging into this. Sadly, they are all part of the cancel culture mob.
