Early HCQ: Does it Work? n=7,295 In Iran says…
This was a massive “trial” in Iran on mild/moderate outpatient treatment with HCQ. Because of the controversy surrounding HCQ at the time, some patients accepted treatment, and many others did not, resulting in a monster de facto RCT on HCQ outpatient treatment. Tiny p-values (< 0.001) leave no doubt as to the answer:
Yes. HCQ works. In early outpatient treatment, within 3-7 days of symptom onset.
Via my international hero COVID19Crusher:
A total of 7,295 (25.37%) patients who presented with mild COVID-19 within 3 to 7 days of symptoms onset received HCQ (400 mg twice daily on day 1 followed by 200 mg twice daily for the next four days and were then followed for 14 days).
The main outcome measures were hospitalization or death for six months follow-up. COVID-19-related hospitalizations or deaths occurred in 523 (7.17%) and 27 (0.37%) respectively, in HCQ recipients and 2,382 (11.10%) and 287 (1.34%) respectively, in non-recipients. The odds of hospitalization or death was reduced by 38% (odds ratio [OR] = 0.62; 95% confidence interval [CI]: 0.56–0.68, p = < 0.001) and 73% (OR = 0.27; 95% CI: 0.18–0.41, p = < 0.001) in HCQ recipients and non-recipients. These effects were maintained after adjusting for age, comorbidities, and diagnostic modality. No serious HCQ-related adverse drug reactions were reported.
In our large outpatient national cohort of adults with mild COVID-19 disease who were given HCQ early in the course of the disease, the odds of hospitalization or death was reduced significantly regardless of age or comorbidities.
Or, more briefly, 38% reduction in hospitalizations, and 73% reduction in deaths.
I’ll leave the calculation of the number of dead Americans due to the deliberate suppression of early outpatient treatment using HCQ by our national “health” authorities dating back to March/April 2020 as an exercise for the reader.
Perhaps Two-Mask Fauci can do the math for us? How many American grandmas needlessly perished as a direct result of that “No HCQ For You” policy?
Once more we are rescued from the dark depths of Western Institutional Medical Nihilism by the kind, caring, and free-thinking doctors from yet another Third World Country, operating far outside of the control of The Empire.
So. Raoult was right. So was Zelenko. And by extension, so was the Bad Orange Man.
Who would have expected that the punchline would be delivered by Iran??!
myfreedoctor dot com is a source of HCQ, IVM and others. Donations are appreciated. One of the doctors was interviewed on One America News a few days ago. Appears to be a legitimate group. He said they prefer to do it by texting instead of telemedicine, that it’s more efficient. Apparently only serving the USA, South Africa and Namibia at this time but they’re trying to recruit more doctors.
Fauci & the rest of the Borg Medical Collective have sent a response:
Resistance is futile… You will be vaccinated!
I think Rick Bright’s role in surpressing HCQ usage merits further investigation. See https://americaoutloud.com/fda-bureaucrat-brags-on-blocking-physicians-prescribing-hcq-in-early-covid-19/
“Whistleblower” Bright said: “Specifically, and contrary to misguided directives, I limited the broad use of chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine, promoted by the administration as a panacea, but which clearly lack scientific merit.” Meanwhile, he promoted both remdesivir, a never-approved experimental antiviral in development by Gilead Sciences, and a vaccine for COVID-19.
I seem to remember someone bragging they had discarded a lot of HCQ doses from the US stockpile so they couldn’t be misused. Was it that same Bright?
