    Covid-19 medication

there’s now a paper on chloroquine effectiveness against COVID-19

https://www.jstage.jst.go.jp/article/bst/advpub/0/advpub_2020.01047/_article

the source seems legit but I’m no expert…

excerpt from this article
“results from more than 100 patients have demonstrated that chloroquine phosphate is superior to the control treatment in inhibiting the exacerbation of pneumonia, improving lung imaging findings, promoting a virus-negative conversion, and shortening the diseasecourse according to the news briefing. Severe adverse reactions to chloroquine phosphate were not noted in the aforementioned patients. Given these findings, a conference was held on February 15, 2020; participants including experts from government and regulatory authorities and organizers of clinical trials reached an agreement that chloroquine phosphate has potent activity against COVID-19. The drug is recommended for inclusion in the next version of the Guidelines for the Prevention, Diagnosis, and Treatment of Pneumonia Caused by COVID-19 issued by the National Health Commission of the People’s Republic of China”

    Covid-19 medication

Ok so pulling out that thread on Chloroquine being an effective treatment.

For french-speakers there is an interesting channel from the director of Marseille infectious disease institute.
He’s an expert in the field of “communicable diseases” as per expertscape
http://expertscape.com/au/communicable+disease/Raoult%2C+D

He’s confirming the Chinese have tested with success the use of Chloroquine for 500mg/day over 10 days.

here is the article that talks about the treatment protocol (in chinese with abstract in english 🙂

and here is the french expert on infectious diseases.

This scientist looks quite optimistic overall, saying that coming spring would slow the spread (and even stop it) and that chloroquine should bring CFR way down.
He’s much more worried about the panic than the COVID-19 itself.

Interestingly, he agrees quarantine is futile on that type of virus and the diamond princess is a shameful scandal.
