Skip to comments.VA Chief: Actually Hydroxychloroquine Has Been Working Against COVID-19; Stopped Disease Progression on Middle-age and Younger veterans
Posted on 04/22/2020 11:41:11 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
The anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine has been working in COVID-19 patients, Secretary of Veterans Affairs Robert Wilkie said on Wednesday.
Wilkies comments come after a study looking at the effects of the drug in 368 patients in Veterans Health Administration hospitals found no evidence the drug is effective against COVID-19, a new disease caused by the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus.
Responding to the results during an appearance on MSNBC, Wilkie said, Thats just an observational study. Its not a clinical study. It was done on a small number of veterans; sadly, those of whom were in the last stages of life, and the drug was given to them.
The drug has been working on middle-age and younger veterans, Wilkie added. By that, he meant that it was stopping the progression of COVID-19.
The study in question can help inform doctors who are caring for veterans who have the CCP virus, Wilkie said.
Doctors across the nation have been prescribing hydroxychloroquine but there are a number of concerns about its effectiveness and, if it proves effective, medical workers want to pinpoint the correct dosage information and other matters regarding how and when to prescribe it.
Clinical trials of hydroxychloroquine are underway in Minnesota, Tennessee, and New York. Andrew Cuomo, the governor of the Empire State, asked for more doses of the drug to be delivered to New York City while in the Oval Office meeting with President Donald Trump, according to Wilkie.
Also this week, doctors and experts on a panel created by the National Institutes of Health said they were recommending against using hydroxychloroquine in combination with azithromycin, an antibiotic also known as Z-Pak.

Glad he’s clarifying.
And nobody mentions zinc.
too late. the “retrospective study” is already being blared from the mountaintops — which was the whole idea in the first place.
The issue for the Deep State and the HCQ protocol is that NOBODY GETS RICH OFF A GENERIC DRUG!!!!
We need to find out who’s been buying stock in Gilead.
It doesn’t matter if a hundred thousand Hunan coronavirus sufferers are helped by hydroxychloroquine.
If even one of them has any sort of adverse health reaction, the Monica Media will focus on that one case to support their Orange Man Bad messaging.
RE: We need to find out whos been buying stock in Gilead.
ME, the Hydroxychloroquine fan, through my mutual fund. Anything wrong with that?
I think it is obvious that the drug has some benefits if started early in the course of the disease. Not when someone is on intubation.
The news media, academia, entertainment and any Democrat LIE, LIE, LIE!
But those facts did not get in the way of the NAZI Institute of Health from issuing a decree that HCQ is bad and the media then hyperventilating in a coordinated effort between NIH and them.
It's been obvious for some time that front-line doctors are ignoring the received wisdom from the medical establishment and HCQ+Zinc+Azythromycin has become the de facto go-to treatment for most patients.
Ah, but the recipe that works was derived from a Jewish Doctor treating Jews, very religious Jews. So that must be set to the side, not used as proof of efficacy don’tchaknow. The gatesian minions must make sure there are very mixed results with what stops this devilish virus. Must not have a ‘cure’ until Gates’s vaccines arrive complete with tracking systems. The sheeple must be controlled you see, because a nation of we the people sovereigns must be obliterated so the new world order can take over the planet.
RE: I think it is obvious that the drug has some benefits if started early in the course of the disease. Not when someone is on intubation.
That was what Dr. Zelenko’s successful treatments on hundreds of patients concluded. And Zelenko kept emhpasizing it -— the purpose is TO PREVENT the disease from progressing to a point a patient has to be intubated !!
He repeated it in EVERY interview and even PUBLISHED IT!
I don’t know how many of these people who performed the trials even bothered to talk to him. Whatever it is, the unsuccessful trials were NOT DESIGNED to replicate Dr. Zelenko’s successful cases. Those who succeeded replicated what he did ( e.g. Dr. William Grace, Dr. Stephen Smith ).
RE: Ah, but the recipe that works was derived from a Jewish Doctor treating Jews, very religious Jews.
Dr. Zelenko said that his idea of using HCQ was NOT ORIGINAL. He simply referred to past successful cases in China, Korea and France. All other Doctors who replicated Zelenko succeeded ( e.g. Dr. William Grace and Dr. Stephen Smith of NJ, two examples ).
Wilkie said, It was done on a small number of veterans; sadly, those of whom were in the last stages of life, and the drug was given to them.
Trump keeps talking that we the people are at ‘war’ with the invisible enemy. He mentions it occasionally, but ‘we the people’ are also at war with the GLOBALISTS, DEMOCRAT LEADERS, THE MEDIA, AND MANY ‘DEEP STATE’ BUREAUCRATS.
