from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:
Something rather remarkable has occurred just recently regarding the Chinese/Wuhan coronavirus. And yes, I said it. Go ahead and call me a racist if you wish.
A treatment has been developed that shows promise at stopping the virus in virtually all patients for whom it’s been administered.
Early tests suggest that it can stop the virus from being contagious in just six days, with little to no side effects.
This is a huge breakthrough that’s happened in no time flat.
I stress that this appears effective as a treatment. It is not a vaccine, but if it’s as effective as advertised, it will buy the time needed to develop one.
Professor Didier Raoult from infection hospital l’Institut Hospitalo-Universitaire (IHU) Méditerranée Infection in Marseille, France, said that, “the first COVID-19 patients he had treated with the drug chloroquine had seen a rapid and effective speeding up of their healing process, and a sharp decrease in the amount of time they remained contagious.”
Chloroquine is a drug that’s been around since 1945 and was originally developed to prevent and treat malaria.
Interestingly, virtually the same drug, Chloroquine phosphate and hydroxychloroquine, have been and are being used in China and Korea with similar results. This appears too unlikely to be coincidental, but there doesn’t appear to be collaboration between the Chinese, the South Koreans and the French.
However, in my opinion, there must be something there.
Whatever the case, it may be the reason why the Chinese have announced such a rapid turnaround, and drastic lessoning of reported cases and deaths.
And it also may be the reason Great Britain has banned the export of any stockpiles of the drug. The word is evidently getting out.
Recall the New Jersey physician’s assistant, James Cai, who contracted coronavirus. After his doctors consulted with Chinese physicians, he was given a combination of chloroquine and the HIV drug Kaletra. He is now recovering, but says that without this treatment he would have “been a goner.”
