In 2019, the general public had no clue what hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) was. It is not a drug that appeared out of nowhere once the Wuhan Bat Flu spread around the world – it’s been around for quite some time – longer than many of us have been alive.
When we first heard about this, it was touted as an “anti-malarial” drug, but it turns out that it’s had another important use for a different malady. Ask any person suffering from lupus, and they will know what HCQ is, as that has been prescribed for their condition since 1956. That’s not a typo..some intern over at Fox News also might want to tell Neil Cavuto (& CNN, MSNBC,Reuters, ABC, CBS, AP, etc.) that little nugget. Due to the increase in demand from the current China-induced pandemic, those suffering from lupus have been concerned over shorter supplies.
Is it a miracle drug with no side effects? Of course not, every drug has effects, some are worse than others. As the link above lays out, “may cause gastrointestinal problems, such as nausea, vomiting, upset stomach, cramps, or diarrhea. These may occur for the first few days a person takes the drug while the body adjusts to the medication. Loss of appetite, tiredness, weakness, or headache are uncommon side effects and typically go away over time.” That said, lupus sufferers take HCQ as a therapy.
In the case of the Bat Soup Hangover, people only need to take it for a few days (plus a zinc-based medicine like Zpak). That isn’t stopping the Democrat Indoctrinators from over-hyping a extremely rare side effect of it damaging the eyes – but that is NOT a concern for someone taking it for a few days or even a week. It’s only for people that are taking it for months and years, where the recommendation for lupus is to take it “throughout their lifetime,” where such a case the person needs to have annual eye check-ups. Not daily ones like the knuckledraggers in the media seem to think.
It should also be noted that the US Propaganda Brigade that is actively attacking HCQ is directly causing death in other parts of the world. Thanks to CNN constantly touting that there is “no scientifically proven benefit to HCQ,” propaganda outlets in places like Brazil (who only get their international news from the voodoo doctors over at CNN) loudly tout the same thing. This has caused a lot of political friction in the country against Bolsonaro, who has been madly trying to get doctors there to prescribe the drug for the Lo Mein Pain.
Why does it work for something like the Shanghai Shivers though? The answer is found in this great video (which amazingly hasn’t been banned by YouTube yet), where the science behind it is described in great detail. The short of it is: Zinc. Zinc effectively works against viruses, but the problem with just taking straight zinc is that it doesn’t get into your cells by itself – a drug like HCQ essentially serves as a chaperone for zinc to get inside of infected cells and lay waste to the Wuhan Wobbles in no time:
Thousands of patients have already been taking HCQ to treat the Ow Chi Lung, and have come away with a short duration of Chinese Flu, not a longer one. Of course, the media and other political dimwits are thoroughly invested in attacking anything that can diminish the impact of the Flu Manchu, since this is what they see as finally taking out the Bad Orange Man.
Once again, Trump is the one leading the charge on real science and saving lives because of it, while Leftists are continuing their usual hypocrisy of proclaiming that they’re all about “saving lives” by staying home, while they actively work to murder anyone by spreading false information and attack effective treatments like HCQ.
