    Reply To: Another HCQ Study from Scotland

I read the Google News Page every morning to try to get a read on what narratives are being pushed. The study you mention is on the Google News Feed with this headline.

Does A New Study Really Show That Hydroxychloroquine Might Be Effective Against Omicron?

I found it odd to see a headline like that on the Google News Feed. It is like all the other back peddling that has been done recently.

The article that the Google headline links to is equivocal. It cites the fraudulent study purporting to claim that “Hydroxychloroquine doesn’t work and is dangerous.” But, yet again oddly enough, it actually admits that people are now challenging the validity of the original Anti-Hydroxychloroquine study!

WTF?

An article like that is on the Google News Feed?

The article concludes that more Hydroxychloroquine studies need to be done but says that it is not that important now since we now have “plenty of drugs to treat COVID including antivirals, such as molnupiravir and remdesivir, anti-inflammatories, such as dexamethasone, and antibody therapies.”

The whole thing is odd. It seems like another “limited hang out.” Maybe, “butt covering” as things start to unravel.

    Their bottom line for alternate therapeutics is unrealistic

The bottom line in the conversation piece is a bit unrealistic.  “We’ve already got Paxlovid, so who needs HCQ anyway”.

The therapeutic window for Paxlovid (and all antivirals) is only 3-5 days.

So you’ve got to recognize symptoms, get verifiable test from a source your GP will be able to authenticate; get the test to your doc and get a turn-around prescription; and finally, find a pharmacy which has your med in stock & get your prescription filled.  All within 3-5 days?

Omicron replicates so rapidly, one would about need a starter pack on standby in their medicine cabinet.  Something easily done with HCQ; not so much with Paxlovid.
