Skip to comments.FEMA ships out nearly 20 million Hydroxychloroquine tablets

The Strategic National Stockpile has sent out 19.1 million tablets of hydroxychloroquine, the malaria drug that some doctors have prescribed to Covid-19 patients, a spokesperson for the Federal Emergency Management Agency confirmed. The tablets, sent out in two shipments, are heading to cities around the country.
About 10.1 million are going to the Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs, as well as Washington, D.C.; Baton Rouge; St. Louis; Philadelphia; Baltimore; Miami; Milwaukee; Indianapolis; Houston and Pittsburgh.
Another shipment, of 9 million tablets, is headed for Detroit, New Orleans, New York City and Chicago, according to the spokesperson.
Those last four cities particularly New York have been hit hard by the pandemic. Others slated to receive the medication have fewer cases but may face upticks. Allegheny County, where Pittsburgh is located, has fewer than 900 cases, according to the Pennsylvania Department of Health. And Milwaukee County has fewer than 2,000, per its county government. Miami-Dade County, meanwhile, has 7,555 confirmed cases of the illness, according to the Miami Herald. And Cook County in Illinois has had more than 15,000 cases, per the countys Department of Public Health.
Erin Fox, senior director of Drug Information and Support Services at the University of Utah College of Pharmacy, said most courses of hydroxychloroquine treatment for Covid-19 take 12 to 14 tablets. So the shipments will cover treatment for about 1.4 million patients.
Its a lot, she said.
Fox added that the data on the drugs efficacy for coronavirus patients is anecdotal, as there have been no clinical trials showing that hydroxychloroquine is effective in treating Covid-19.

Keep track of ‘em! I don’t trust FEMA.
Are you saying there are imbedded dem operatives in FEMA who would lose these drugs to further thwart Trump? Are you saying they would let thousands suffer and die due to their TDS? If you are, I agree.
re: “Fox added that the data on the drugs efficacy for coronavirus patients is anecdotal, as there have been no clinical trials showing that hydroxychloroquine is effective in treating Covid-19.”
Ya - no clinical trial AS IF it was just another face or ‘acne’ cream as opposed to a life-saving treatment ...
20 million antidote anecdotes.
Ken commented on Of Quinine And Chloroquine:
Dr Didier Raoult who became noted during this crisis by publishing the results of his first small test where he combined hydroxychloroquine with azithromycin as a new Covid-19 treatment has just released the results of his latest test where he has 1061 patients. The most basic result is he saw 5 deaths.
Perhaps we should do some simple math since the so called experts in the medical profession still seem to me mathematically challenged.
5 deaths out of 1061 patients is 0.47%
As of today France has recorded 129,654 confirmed cases and 13,832 deaths.
This is a death rate of 10.67% per confirmed case.
Currently the same random population in France shows a death rate that is 22 times as large in the population who was not treated compared to the 1061 in this test that were treated. This incredible result is the definition of statistically significant.
For those asking for a control group as some magical requirement for statistical significance in their rigid illogical and unthinking brain, I recommend they use 1061 of the 129,654 confirmed cases which has resulted in the 13,832 dead French who are available in the morgues of France. They represent a truly random group and the only significant difference in their outcome compared to this treated group is they were blocked from a treatment the Chinese and Koreans have been dispensing FOR MONTHS and have published generally positive if not PERFECT results.
I personally could not care less if Dr Raoult is arrogant, or labeled a quack by other self important quacks during any previous studies. I only care about results of any useful treatment to reduce the suffering from this deadly virus. This treatment has never been called a cure for this disease, it is a treatment when used early can limit the number of people who eventually DIE.
This is not a study on the latest treatment for hair loss, or skin dryness, this is an attempt to have less DEATH. Any fear mongering about a drug which has been safely prescribed for 70 years is the mindless blathering of a fool. I dont see any indication this drug came close to KILLING 10.67% of the 1061 patients who took if for the short term of this test. We would expect 10.67% of these patients would be DEAD using the average death rate from the rest of France. What is so difficult to understand between 0.47% and 10.67% DEAD.
At this point anyone who is blocking this treatment should be removed due to there being only 2 possible reasons for their obstruction. Either they are grossly incompetent, or they are criminally blocking a viable safe treatment for financial or professional benefit.
Screw Fauci. Word’s out. 1st responders and medical personnel are quietly taking it as a preventative. Heck, India (where it’s made, and widely used) mandated it for that group.
Hope they ordered another 100,000,000 doses.
Sweet wormwood/artemesia works the same way as chloroquine. Both focus on the iron and destroy the virus that way.
You can get your hands on the sweet wormwood.
Take it at night by itself with a glass of milk before bed.
By my math that is 108 less dead people out of the 1061 people who took the doses.
Fauci’s billion dollar vaccine is rapidly vanishing into thin air.
The virus mutates so a vaccine probably would not work next year (yeah, I think we are stuck with this thing).
On the other hand HQC + Z-Pac + Zinc (with a dash of chelated copper) should work just fine.
Tough toenails Fauci.
Trump Floods Market With Hydrochloroquine, Somehow It's Bad. Orange Man Bad!
So the democrat cities and on taxpayer paid healthcare get all the medicine.
I want those 3 sitting on a shelf, ready to go. And I want to take just HCQ right now! as a preventative. After initial doses, only need it once a week. Stay on it for 2 years if you want, $50. You won’t get, nor spread, Covid-19 when on it.
I hope to begin taking it within the next year, as it becomes more available.
As a preventative.
Hate to admit it, but I’m in a high risk category, and no, I’m not overweight.
I read the entire article. One thing you’ve got to say about the left wing press. They can’t figure out how to print a story about Biden’s alleged assault, or Brennan’s assault on the presidency, or the IRS’s abuse of conservatives, but when they want to get every single possible objection to the use of hydroxychloroquine into an article, they never fail.
This one was no exception. By now they must have those five or six paragraphs built into a one-keystroke macro in just about every news agency in the country.
The interesting thing about all those risks they cite is they can’t seem to find any examples of them occurring despite the drug now being prescribed to hundreds of thousands of patients worldwide. Because if they could find them, you know they’d be broadcasting them far and wide.
Democrat thugs will burn it.
But but but I thought the media said it was a Trump quack cure hoax./s
Take That Fauxi !

Do you have a serious existing health condition?
