Skip to comments.Did FDA cause second COVID-19 wave by suppressing Hydroxychloroquine?
Posted on 09/01/2020 6:59:19 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
Much has been written about the effectiveness of hydroxychloroquine, for example here. We now have indications that recent restrictions on it caused the second wave of COVID-19 in the United States.
On 15 June 2020, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) revoked emergency authorization for hydroxychloroquine to treat COVID-19 patients. Dr. Harvey Risch, epidemiologist, recently pointed out that this caused people who were not hospital patients to be denied access to this drug. Sure enough, 15 June was the start of the second wave of COVID-19 cases. The second wave had twice the first wave's high for peak cases at 60,000 per day. Better yet (for the Democrats), they can now brag that the peak cases came in late July instead of early April. Since people in hospitals still got this drug, the number of cases increased a lot, but the number of deaths increased only a little. This is apparently the FDA's idea of being humane.
Does hydroxychloroquine work? As of August 2020, there were about 175,000 COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. Contrast this to 62,550 deaths in India, where hydroxychloroquine is manufactured and recommended for use. With populations of 328 million in the US and 1,352 million in India, the number of COVID-19 deaths per million is 528 for the U.S. and 46 for India. In malaria-infested countries, where hydroxychloroquine is greatly needed, the numbers are even better. In Nigeria, 1,011 people have died from COVID-19. Its COVID-19 deaths per million is 4.9. Similar numbers can be found from the America's Frontline Doctors Summit.

Ping as per your request
In before chopperk (L) starts spamming us with his cut and paste solution once again.... :)
Wonder if Quine is as effective .......
The resurgence in cases also correlates to more universal masking. Maybe the masks made people feel immune and encouraged bad behaviors along the lines of why the original guidelines did not encourage mask use.
“Wonder if Quine is as effective .”
I’ve been drinking a lot of gin tonics lately, I’ll let you know.
Please by all means ..... ping me
Even without HCQ, the waves, spikes, and surges were fake crises pushed by the fake news media.
Simple solution to the pandemic,,,,Make HCQ and Azithromycin OTC drugs so anyone who develops a cough and/or fever can go the nearest drug store and self medicate with the drugs along with Zinc Sulfate with correct dosage within 48 hours of symptoms and pandemic over.,,,,,instead of waiting a few days to get tested and 5 days for the results,,,,if over 60 years of age,,,,youre dead.
Watch what happens after Nov 3rd. You are going to see the CDC will announce Hydro-Zinc cocktail is really really effective after all unless the drug companies can stop it.
Its is simple masks only slow the spread..like social distancing...like the lock downs..
There is no second wave...the first wave has not got to the beach yet....
Herd immunity will get here they just made it take a lot longer
There just scaring people with the second wave crap
The major problem is not that the FDA made what appears to be a no-brainer error. It is that someone in the Deep State chose to withhold a needed medicine for political reasons. From the previous paragraph, it appears that 99% of the U.S. COVID-19 patients could have been saved. If so, then 173,000 people died to increase the probability that President Trump will lose the upcoming election.Bring Out Your Dead
No price is too high to remove Orange Man Bad from the White House.
175,000 deaths? No biggie. Devastated economy? No biggie. A generation of children stunted by what amounts to solitary confinement? No biggie. Black owned businesses burned and looted out of existence? No biggie.
These people should be grateful that we saved them from Orange Man Bad.
Post to me or FReep mail to be on/off the Bring Out Your Dead ping list.
The purpose of the Bring Out Your Dead ping list (formerly the Ebola ping list) is very early warning of emerging pandemics, as such it has a high false positive rate.
The false positive rate was 100%.
At some point we may well have a high mortality pandemic, and likely as not the Bring Out Your Dead threads will miss the beginning entirely.
*sigh* Such is life, and death...
If a quarantine saves just one child's or one old farts life, it's worth it.
Correct me if I’m wrong but the hydroxychloriquine only helps get the zink get into your cells so why does India have such low death rate? Are they taking the zink as well?
The SWAMP is deep with many agencies and UNaccountable bureaucrats.
It is also very wide...oceans wide.
If you dive deep enough and can hold your breath long enough, you’ll eventually come up GASPING FOR AIR in CHYna.
Sum Ting Wong.
Besides taking hydroxychloroquine India has the second lowest obesity rate in the world. The United States has the highest except for 11 Small islands with the total population of less than 1 million. Obesity is one of the major comorbidities associated with dying from coronavirus.

READ THIS ARTICLE:
TITLE: This Indian slum contained a possible COVID-19 disaster with hydroxychloroquine; On July 9, 2020, Asia’s biggest and densest slum shocked the world by announcing just one new positive COVID-19 case despite being a cluster and hotspot.
“Officials have credited this turnaround to “[a] combination of hydroxychloroquine, vitamin D, and zinc tablets along with homeopathic medicines.”
BELATED WELCOME ABOARD!!! More thinkers = MAGAKAG.
I knew you’d come. But I pre-empted you in Post #3.
You beat him by 5 posts.
Do you disagree with chopperk’s solution?
It’s backed by actual data.
It reduces government interference in people’s lives.
It would actually save lives.
What exactly do you hate about it?
