Ruth Papazian is “a Bronx-based health and medical writer, and a political junkie.” She reports on the medical options available to those diagnosed with COVID-19, a/k/a Wuhan virus, in a report at American Greatness titled “Fauci’s Folly.” Here’s a brief extract:
. . . a clinician’s job is to save lives. And in the midst of a burgeoning global pandemic when speed is of the essence, field experience with two drugs whose safety profiles are well understood suffices to treat patients who are likely to die. For this reason, the FDA-approved chloroquine and remdesivir, an Ebola treatment, for “compassionate use.” Both drugs can be administered immediately to patients who have serious or life-threatening cases of coronavirus.
The combination of HCQ+AZ could cause abnormal heart rhythms and would not be given to patients with known atrial flutter or atrial fibrillation. Research suggests one alternative for these patients: The combination of chloroquine and zinc, which can stop the virus from replicating.
