Question #1: A recent report by a prominent infectious disease physician (don't remember his name) touted his successes in treating 79 patients successfully with hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin. Why are people dying by the thousands if this treatment proved successful for 79 patients? I just read an article that hydroxychloroquine can cause heart arrythmias in some people. Is that sufficient reason to deny tens of thousands of patients with no heart problems the two drugs? Is it not better to attempt to administer a hopeful drug rather than to ventilate and let the person die? Suggestion: Each person with the disease should be evaluated for possible heart complications. If they have a low risk, then, by all means, administer the drug combination. Why on earth has the news media avoided alerting the country of this promising drug combination?
Question #2: We have been told that in many people the virus is very mild. And in others the virus is deadly, regardless of age. Is there more than one strain of this virus, a mild one and a deadly one? If you get the flu virus, it will most certainly be very serious illness. I never heard of a mild flu case. And when I got the flu 3 times in my life, it was very serious. How can the same virus infection be so dangerous to some people and very mild to others, even the healthy and the young? It does not pass the smell test.
