Skip to comments.Italy Finally Starts Mass Treatment with Hydroxychloroquine
Posted on 03/29/2020 8:22:26 PM PDT by cba123
Doctors in Italy have finally began widely prescribing hydroxychloroquine in certain combinations in Rome and the wider region of Lazio with a population of around six million.
According to Corriere della Sera, a well known Italian daily newspaper, Dr. Pier Luigi Bartoletti, Deputy National Secretary of the Italian Federation of General Practitioners, explains that every single person with Covid-19 that has early signs, like a cough or a fever for example, is now being treated with the anti-malaria drug.
The drug is already giving good results, Bartoletti says while Malaysia reveals they have been using it since the very beginning. Bartoletti further adds that the drug:
Must be used with all the necessary precautions, it must be evaluated patient by patient. It can have side effects. But those that take it are responding really well.

it must be evaluated patient by patient. It can have side effects.
Finally some common sense.
Its been used for 60 years so they are pretty familiar with the side effects.
GEEZE the horse left the barn weeks ago is there anyone left alive in Italy besides the damn Pope???
Thanks for posting; prayers UP!!!!
But, but, I was told it was unsafe by CNN. /s
Fauxi: “wait for me!”
Only for cleaning aquariums
and Zpack has been around for a while too..my brother has taken it twice, its a good drug docs loved giving it since you would only have to take it for 3 days depending on what you were taking it for
Dr Zelenko has perfected a therapy in the United States which has three components proven to work, every time, if administered before the lungs fill with mucus.
What is being used is a combination of drugs , not just Hydroxy-chloroquin, which shows that the Democrats and Big Pharm do not want what is working should be understood by the People.They rail against a single part of the therapy without revealing the rest of it because IT WORKS.But it has to be administered before the lungs fill with mucus.
But what President Trumps agent, Rudy Giuliani has done is created a populist end run around the CDC ( Fauci) and the FDA. This to save lives.( See video link below)
If you are a Trump supporter you know what to do. Contact your physician and ask whether this therapy can be available if you need it. If not shop around. And if you find a Jewish doctor, youre in like Flynn.The therapy cost of the drugs is $20.00, so it wont break you.
Its really up to you.
President Trump has arranged for millions of dosages to come into our country from Israels Teva Corporation....Free. Availability will be no problem.
Secondly there is a pretty sure possibility that hydroxy-chloroquine acts as an prophylaxis, taking 1 x 200 mg HCQ per day along with a 200 gram Zinc supplement.Almost all of the front line doctors in NYC are doing this, so why not everybody. We soon will have enough HCQ to do that.
THIS CAN SAVE YOUR LIFE

To all medical professionals around the world:
My name is Dr. Zev Zelenko and I practice medicine in Monroe, NY. For the last 16 years, I have cared for approximately 75% of the adult population of Kiryas Joel, which is a very close knit community of approximately 35,000 people in which the infection spread rapidly and unchecked prior to the imposition of social distancing.
As of today my team has tested approximately 200 people from this community for Covid-19, and 65% of the results have been positive. If extrapolated to the entire community, that means more than 20,000 people are infected at the present time. Of this group, I estimate that there are 1500 patients who are in the high-risk category (i.e. >60, immunocompromised, comorbidities, etc).
Given the urgency of the situation, I developed the following treatment protocol in the pre-hospital setting and have seen only positive results:
1. Any patient with shortness of breath regardless of age is treated.
2. Any patient in the high-risk category even with just mild symptoms is treated.
3. Young, healthy and low risk patients even with symptoms are not treated (unless their circumstances change and they fall into category 1 or 2).
My out-patient treatment regimen is as follows:
1. Hydroxychloroquine 200mg twice a day for 5 days
2. Azithromycin 500mg once a day for 5 days
3. Zinc sulfate 220mg once a day for 5 days
The rationale for my treatment plan is as follows. I combined the data available from China and South Korea with the recent study published from France (sites available on request). We know that hydroxychloroquine helps Zinc enter the cell. We know that Zinc slows viral replication within the cell. Regarding the use of azithromycin, I postulate it prevents secondary bacterial infections. These three drugs are well known and usually well tolerated, hence the risk to the patient is low.
Since last Thursday, my team has treated approximately 350 patients in Kiryas Joel and another 150 patients in other areas of New York with the above regimen.
Of this group and the information provided to me by affiliated medical teams, we have had ZERO deaths, ZERO hospitalizations, and ZERO intubations. In addition, I have not heard of any negative side effects other than approximately 10% of patients with temporary nausea and diarrhea.
In sum, my urgent recommendation is to initiate treatment in the outpatient setting as soon as possible in accordance with the above. Based on my direct experience, it prevents acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), prevents the need for hospitalization and saves lives.
With much respect,
Dr. Zev Zelenko
Great article. Learned a lot reading it.
I mean, if people can call Gropin' Joe Biden's wife a doctor when she's not, why can't we call President Trump a Doctor?
They will never admit they were wrong.
“More good news, on Hydroxychloroquine.”
OUTSTANDING! Hopefully, in 3 years, the FDA/CDC will approve its use here.
It will never be allowed in NY or MI.
