This is looking promising. It's not a controlled study, but looks like there is success in treating what looks like Corona Virus symptoms with the hydroxychloroquine, azithromycin, and zinc sulfate regimen, in the outpatient setting. This regimen is Not for treating panic. It's for the more vulnerable set of people who are being kicked hard by viral infection. Dr. Vladimir Zelenko is using shortness of breath as a major sign dividing who needs meds and who does not. If you have patience to see him interviewed (lawyer style) by former Mayor Giuliani, it's worth a listen. If this news is shared, hope will grow, as well as desire for this treatment to be made more available. (Since many are conserving the supply of meds for patients in the ICU, the treatment is often coming too late - after much damage to the lungs is done). If we increase production and distribution of the meds, we might prevent people from needing hospitalization.
The golden nugget in this article is how the U.S. got recognition as having the most Corona virus cases of any country in the world. Notice the 2 asterisks next to the US number, which includes PRESUMPTIVE cases (pending test results). None of the other country's numbers show those two little asterisks. This is not a valid comparison, and has produced many fake headlines and claims. In addition, very few actual cases are covered by the testing. No one knows what the real totals are.
The infection was apparently at the wrong end, and so a corona virus test was not indicated. However the diarrhea and vomiting could possibly attend innumerable other problems such as food poisoning, noro virus infection, even toxic shock syndrome. (The article implies that Kathy Griffin does not know which end is up.)
Virus panic kills small businesses first, (except my soap biz will grow). STOP THE PANIC!!
Seems very crooked to me, like a form of insider trading.
We need a vaccine against media generated panic each time a novel virus becomes apparent. Who can be sued for damages caused by the purposeful fear mongering? Just look at the performance of various years' flu vaccines. The claim that a vaccine can ELIMINATE these viruses is not based upon historical data.

Well, that was an in vitro study and old generic drugs are not a big money maker to bring to market for a new indication. Sorta slows the interest in clinical trials, ya know. Maybe our philanthropists could be diverted from chasing climate change to fund some of these kinds of things, as well as trialing the good medicine that can be derived from our weeds.
Apparently Europe has too many nurses and they aren't afraid to lose some. Nurse Midwives lose their right to practice without killing.
Guuuuuuurrrrl, get a real job. Life with purpose will make you happier.
