49,492 Deaths and Rising - Death Toll Mounts With FDA Denial Of HCQ For Outpatient COVID Therapy

"The FDA denied August 10 the urgent request for emergency approval for COVID-19 outpatient preventive and early treatment use of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) filed July 1 by Dr. John McKinnon’s team at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, supported by Dr. Peter McCullough’s cardiology team at Baylor Heart and Vascular Institute in Dallas.

Approximately 48,000 more Americans have died during the FDA’s 48-day delay since this Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) was requested on July 1. Dr. McKinnon’s clinical trial found an impressive 51% reduction in deaths if HCQ was begun within 24 hours of admission to hospital.

An outpatient primary care study by Dr. Vladimir Zelenko, using HCQ, azithromycin and zinc given within less than 7 days of COVID-19 symptoms, showed approximately 80% decrease in deaths, and less than 1% of his patients needed to be admitted to hospital. These extraordinary results show how many lives can be saved with early HCQ treatment.

Dr. Harvey Risch, Yale epidemiologist, projected that widespread early treatment for COVID-19 with the already FDA-approved HCQ could have saved 100,000 American lives.

The physician head of the FDA, Dr. Steven Hahn, has again betrayed physicians and patients by preventing Americans from having the “right to try” HCQ for early COVID-19 treatment. Dr. Hahn knows full well the FDA approved HCQ as safe in 1955, and it has been used in millions of patients worldwide for 65 years with an impressive track record of safety in patients of all ages, all ethnic groups, and even pregnant women and nursing mothers."

    It can't be allowed. Trump said it worked; therefore, it must be bad.

    Good things can not be allowed to happen until after the election if Biden wins.

      If the left really wanted to help the unemployed, they would open everything up again, and make sure everyone has a prescription of HCQ to stop the virus before it spreads.

      But that wouldn't suit the Trump haters or big pharma - who corrupts the con-gress by paying to get them elected over grass-roots candidates who aren't lifetime looters.

      Cheap, simple solution is never what government wants. If the so-called experts had listened to Trump instead of shutting down there'd be 20 million more employed and $3 trillion saved.And 100,000 less dead from the virus.
      And a Trump and GOP landslide in November.

        The last is the fundamental reason for fear mongering.

        This president communicates like a child, and does not behave very presidential. However, no president has ever faced this level of undermining and resistance from the government itself and the media. From the drummed-up, fraudulent Mueller investigation to this COVID crap. Bias and fraud are an all time high.

        Many of you guys are older than me, but I recall from experience or history, nothing like this, short of a totalitarian revolution.

          I agree, Thor. I didn't vote for Trump (or for Hitlery) but I did think Trump won and deserved the same respect as other presidents. Which meant that the previous presidents were given a chance to make the case for the programs they wanted to start or end. Every previous president was given that chance by the opposition party - without exception regardless of differences of ideology.
          Trump was opposed by both parties before and after his election. Democrats have illegally tried to remove him from office ever since he was elected. Republicans opposed Trump's programs when they had a majority in both houses for 2 years, even though they knew Trump's supporters wanted those programs, specifically the Wall and repeal of Obamacare.
          Now we have Democrats allowing thousands to die from a virus because they want to stop Trump's re-election.

          We also have George Soros paying people to betray their country and to promote a new Nazi Kristallnacht against innocent people in cities across America. Democrat authorities in those places have encouraged those paid criminals to loot, burn, and murder those who are innocent.

          If I had the power I'd declare Soros a terrorist and enemy combatant and send a drone to execute him.

            It mystifies me that they are even allowing thousands of their OWN to die to achieve this end! Seriously! What are they thinking?

              Motivations are clear. Their own? "They" have bodyguards and guns. Others don't merit them. Same with COVID. "They" will get any arbitrarily expensive, and superior treatment, including HCQ. Others are just there to be herded as cattle.

              Totalitarians are sitting in plain sight in DC, and willing, ignorant lemmings are worshiping them.

                Those "cattle" have 400 million firearms and billions of rounds of ammunition. Please treat them like sheep.

                  Yep. Worrisome. Events coming as the sheep sitting next to the men, ask the men to disarm themselves so the sheep feel more comfortable, while the government hyenas cackle having precipitated the argument among the proletariat.

                    When heavily armed men are treated as sheep, the result may make the Battle of Athens (TN) seem like a walk in the park.

                    In 1946, a group of veterans and disgruntled citizens went to war with the local government of Athens, Tennessee. The small farming community had spent the 1940s dominated by a crooked political machine led by sheriff and legislator Paul Cantrell, who was known to rig elections in his favor through ballot stuffing and voter intimidation.
                    Sound familiar?

                    Corruption ran rampant until 1945, when hundreds of young men returned to Athens fresh from the battlefields of World War II. After they experienced repeated harassment by law enforcement, the ex-GIs organized their own political party and ran several veterans for local office in the hopes of ousting Cantrell and his cronies once and for all.

                    The “battle” unfolded during a tense Election Day on August 1, 1946. When the veterans’ accused Cantrell of vote fraud, armed sheriff’s deputies began beating and detaining the GI’s poll watchers, and one officer even shot an elderly voter in the back. After Cantrell and his deputies confiscated the ballot boxes and barricaded themselves inside the local jail, hundreds of ex-GIs armed themselves with high-powered rifles and laid siege to the building. The two sides traded fire throughout the night, leaving several men wounded, but the deputies finally surrendered after the veterans began lobbing dynamite at the jailhouse. When the votes were counted, the GI candidates were declared the winners and immediately sworn into office. Their upstart political party would go on to restructure local government and clean up much of the corruption in Athens.

                      That is a great example. The "worrisome" comment was relative to the scope of the next example.

                      1945, Tennessee? I bet the corrupt local government were...Demonrats! Right? E.H. Crump...Democrat. shocking.

                I suppose you are right. I'd just think they'd have the grace to spare the people who voted for them....but I suppose they are useful idiots, aka just in the way.

                  Sheep sitting next to dogs, asking the dogs to remove their teeth and dress like sheep to make them feel more comfortable. All the while, the government hyenas watch. Why would the hyenas care about a couple of sheep, if they get to disarm the dogs and then feast?

    If you are on Medicare, especially with a supplemental, or have any other insurance, they may deny coverage without a concurrent or existing lupus or malaria diagnosis, thereby triggering the pharmacist to refuse to fill your doctor's prescription. But the drug is so inexpensive, get it from the doctor in script rather than have it called in to you normal pharmacy, and take ti to a local owned (not a chain) pharmacy and say you don't have insurance and will pay cash. This is easy to do since the drug costs pennies/dose.

      That's probably what we will end up doing. This is one advantage of Oklahoma: we have a lot more independent pharmacies than Texas does. I needed a compounded drug a few years ago in Texas. There was ONE pharmacy in the DFW metroplex that had what I needed. Up here, though, they are everywhere.

    Follow da munny. This works in 150% of all cases involving the government.
    Gates Vaccine? $1 trillion business
    Remdesivir? $1000/day treatment
    State of fear? Priceless.
    Me? HCQ prophylaxis , $10/month. MD in 40th year of practice, half of it in academics teaching the little darlings how to be discerning physicians. HCQ has worked on not 50%, not 60%, 70,80,90%. Nope, 100% if given with zinc at ONSET of symptoms. It's so safe it is better than aspirin, tylenol or NSAIDs, because it kills the virus and breaks the fever, r/t masking the fever while the viral load explodes exponentially. I say sue the bastards. Only way to get their attention

    If enough patients demand HCQ the gov't swamp docs might have to change their minds. American citizens must educate themselves on HCQ by talking to medical professionals not via the internet. I did a search on HCQ and most of the entries are ambivalent about its use and efficacy. So, there is a definite bias against it.

    Yup . The only issue that I am aware of is HCQ is problematic for people with psoriasis. I have psoriasis.

      Dob-
      This is a warning seen often on the medication info sheets.
      I did a search on this. I found only one paper!
      One patient with psoriasis was given HCQ in a hospital (or clinic) and was monitored. This one patient was a middle aged woman. No change in the psoriasis condition was observed.
      I have deleted the link.
      I'd be curious if you come up with anything.

      The other issues are-
      - heart rhythm irregularity, yes a possibility, a very small number of people (about 1%) are at risk here.
      - Iris damage. Yes, this condition has been observed in some long term (five year) HCQ users. Long term HCQ users should have a special color vision test every six months.

      My husband's doctor has said he would prescribe HCQ if/when he will arrange for a Zoom interview, to explain the downsides and contraindications. I expect that the interview to happen fairly soon. (The doctor is well-acquainted with my husband and his various health specifics, so it's not just a doc-in-the-box type thing.)

      The only thing left is to find someone to fill the prescription. So far, all I am seeing is online sources, which otherwise would be OK but how do I know what they are sending? It's literally unconscionable that a pharmacy would refuse to fill an otherwise reasonable prescription (thus, facilitating many thousands of deaths) just to thwart a sitting President, which is what it boils down to.

        You should be able to get it filled at any pharmacy, if you have him also prescribe an appropriate OTC NSAID.... which together are common approved treatments for your.... lupus....

          Right, I get that, but I am not sure he's willing to lie on his diagnosis. My ire is mostly aimed toward the pharmacies which have no business doing this! But thank you for the suggestion!

            The diagnosis doesn't go on the prescription. Just ask him to write what dose of snaid you should keep in the house for general purposes, it's OTC anyway. :)

              I have heard here locally of the pharmacy calling the doctor to ask specifically what the diagnosis was! And if the magic words aren't said....no fulfillment. (The doc himself said "I don't know where you are going to get this filled.") Anyway, right now I'm waiting on hubby to get his video appointment.

    The nation producing (nearly) all the global supply of HCQ is India. Back in about March, Trump made an agreement with India for supply of 29 million tablets for the US.
    Where did they go?

    A discussion here on the Gulch a month ago was about supply of HCQ. A member complained about sufferers of Lupus not being able to get it. I asked that question then. Supply of HCQ is not being cornered by CCP19 sufferers, it is in locked storage, or where?

    However, medications that are not 'touted' by Trump, not yet on the big pharma hate list, and are cheap, and still legal are Quercetin and Ivermectin. Do not look up in ggl.
