On a day when the far-left media was yet again pushing recycled headlines about a New York “study” of very ill patients who were NOT actually given the combination of hydroxychloroquine and zinc which concluded these near-death patients did no better or worse when given the drug, another study showing a very different result was largely ignored by these same media outlets.
Check out this headline coming out of New York as well which showed the combination of hydroxychloroquine and zinc slashed the risk of death from the coronavirus by nearly half.
NEW YORK – Researchers at NYU’s Grossman School of Medicine found patients given the antimalarial drug hydroxychloroquine along with zinc sulphate and the antibiotic azithromycin were 44 percent less likely to die from the coronavirus.
“Certainly we have very limited options as far as what we have seen work for this infection so anything that may work is very exciting,” said Dr. Joseph Rahimian, Infectious Disease Specialist at NYU Langone Health.
The study looked at the records of 932 COVID-19 patients treated at local hospitals with hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin.
More than 400 of them were also given 100 milligrams of zinc daily.
Researchers said the patients given zinc were one and a half times more likely to recover, decreasing their need for intensive care.
If one were to do an online news search right now for similar studies as above you will find story after story on the recycled New York study that showed no benefit from hydroxychloroquine while this other study (also from New York) that indicates the hydroxychloroquine + zinc combination shows remarkable promise, is receiving almost zero media coverage. This is the same combination that has been touted by physicians all across America and the world as proving highly effective and yet here in the U.S. there are forces both in government and the media who continue to push this success to the side while also pushing yet more fear and panic of the disease.
Did you know that in Italy, one of the nations hardest hit by Covid 19, once doctors started initiating mass use of hydroxychloroquine and zinc, the death rate plummeted from a high of nearly a thousand a day to less than 200? This drug combination protocol has been repeated in other nations like South Korea, France, Bahrain, Turkey, Brazil, etc., with similar rates of success there as well as outlined in this excerpt from an April 21st scientific journal release:
“On March 23, 2020 a physician (Vladimir Zelenko) in Monroe, New York state, published online similar excellent outcomes on treating his patients with shortness of breath and any patient in the high-risk category with HCQ, azithromycin and zinc sulfate for five days in order to prevent hospitalization.
On April 17, 2020 doctors from a health care provider focused on mostly elderly and chronic patients in Brazil confirmed Raoul’s and Zelenko’s findings reporting that out of 636 symptomatic outpatients of the 224 who refused treatment (control group), 12 were hospitalized (5.4%), and of these 12 hospitalized, 5 patients died (41%) . On the other hand, of the 412 outpatients treated with HCQ and azithromycin, only 8 were hospitalized (1.94%), and no deaths were observed. In case of early treatment (<7 days of symptoms) only 1.17% of treated patients needed hospitalization, while the percentage raised to 3.2% for late treatment (>7 days of symptoms). These outcomes were even more remarkable considering that patients in the treatment groups had higher prevalence of comorbidities including diabetes, immunosuppression state and stroke . “
Again, why is there such push-back going on in the United States from the far-left media to dismiss what appears to be the undeniable effectiveness of hydroxychloroquine + zinc in combatting Covid-19?
