There have been 3 international tests on using chloroquine for patients with DTMNBN (Disease That Must Not Be Named) and the results of those three tests showed that 100% of the patients in all three studies recovered within six days.
That gives patients hope unless you live in Nevada where Democratic governor Steve Sisolak banned it’s use in his state.
The three international studies were done in Australia, China and France.
Now, Dr. William Grace of Lenox Hill Hospital says that since they started using Hydroxychloroquine the less toxic version of Chloroquine, they have treated 100 patients and not a single one died.
Seems to me with the success rating that Hydroxychloroquine has, he would want the citizens of his state to have it.
That means that if a citizen of Nevada wants to use the only known cure, they will have to leave the state which could cause severe financial problems and the poor will just have to take their chances.
The Associated Press reported (emphasis our own):
LAS VEGAS (AP) — Nevada’s governor on Tuesday night issued an emergency order banning gatherings of more than 10 people in the state indoors or outdoors, a more aggressive move to try to stop the spread of the coronavrius.
Sisolak said the order does not apply to private homes or the homeless, but includes places like social clubs, parks, libraries and sports fields.
Sisolak signed an emergency order earlier Tuesday barring the use of anti-malaria drugs for someone who has the coronavirus.
The order restricting chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine came after President Donald Trump touted the medication as a treatment and falsely stated that the Food and Drug Administration had just approved the use of chloroquine to treat patients infected with coronavirus. Sisolak said in a statement that there’s no consensus among experts or Nevada doctors that the drugs can treat people with COVID-19.
