Covid body storage trucks, with statue of "liberty" in the background

Remember how everyone castigated Trump last year for asserting, “without evidence,” that HCQ was an effective covid-19 treatment?

Every MSM organ circulated the same talking points last year on this. Here’s an example from The Hill from July:

President Trump on Tuesday doubled down on his defense of using hydroxychloroquine to treat COVID-19, despite substantial medical evidence disproving its effectiveness, saying he believed the debate about it had become “very political.”

Naturally The Hill provides no source for their claim that “substantial medical evidence” existed. In other words, The Hill and the rest of MSM hypocritically made their claims… without evidence!

Contradicting all of that, a paper published in the January 2021 edition of The American Journal of Medicine specifically concludes that early use of HQC in covid-infected patients significantly decreases mortality:

Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) is an antimalarial/anti-inflammatory drug that impairs endosomal transfer of virions within human cells. HCQ is also a zinc ionophore that conveys zinc intracellularly to block the SARS-CoV-2 RNA-dependent RNA polymerase, which is the core enzyme of the virus replication.21 The currently completed retrospective studies and randomized trials have generally shown these findings: 1) when started late in the hospital course and for short durations of time, antimalarials appear to be ineffective, 2) when started earlier in the hospital course, for progressively longer durations and in outpatients, antimalarials may reduce the progression of disease, prevent hospitalization, and are associated with reduced mortality. In a retrospective inpatient study of 2541 patients hospitalized with COVID-19, therapy associated with an adjusted reduction in mortality was HCQ alone (hazard ratio [HR] = 0.34, 95% confidence interval [CI] 0.25-0.46, P <0.001) and HCQ with azithromycin (HR = 0.29, 95% CI 0.22-0.40, P <0.001).23 HCQ was approved by the US Food and Drug Administration in 1955, has been used by hundreds of millions of people worldwide since then, is sold over the counter in many countries, and has a well-characterized safety profile that should not raise undue alarm.

The paper was originally written in August, 2020. We can only speculate as to why AJM didn’t publish it until after the election

The new recommended “emergency response” treatment algorithm in the paper includes immediate treatment with HCQ for those over 50 or with a single comorbidity – i.e., the most vulnerable populations:

In other words, everything MSM and the left told you last year about HCQ was wrong. And by July 2020, based on published studies, they knew it, or reasonably should have known.

Are you tired of being lied to yet?

Here’s another site that tracks over 200 studies of HCQ used for covid-19. Meta analysis of those studies confirms what’s in the AJM paper above: early use of HCQ is effective against covid-19. And the site notes on this page that “studies from North America are 4.0 times more likely to report negative results than studies from the rest of the world combined, p = 0.00000005.”

Gee, why do you think that is??

Could it be for the same reason that the US lags most of the world in HCQ use?

Can we call MSM and the left’s anti-HCQ statements last year “denialism?” After all, HCQ denialism has caused 1.3 million unnecessary covid-19 deaths – and for what? To prevent use of a cheap, well-known anti-malaria drug that “has a well-characterized safety profile?” Even if it were ineffective against covid-19, what negative difference would widespread use of an OTC drug have made?

The Ministry of Truth is alive and well. Sickness is health. Poverty is riches. Madness is sanity. And Kamala Harris and Rachel Dolezal are both “black.”
