From the very beginning of the pandemic:
[P]hysicians worldwide discovered that high-risk patients can be treated successfully as outpatients, within the first five to seven days of the onset of symptoms, with a “cocktail” consisting of hydroxychloroquine, zinc and azithromycin (or doxycycline). Multiple scholarly contributions to the literature detail the efficacy of the hydroxychloroquine-based combination treatment.
Besides the “hundreds of physicians in the United States and thousands across the globe who have had dramatic success treating high-risk individuals” with HCQ, there are also “at least 10 studies demonstrating” its effectiveness.
The three MDs go on to cite an article by esteemed Yale epidemiologist, Dr. Harvey Risch in the American Journal of Epidemiology that urged in its very title – sadly to no avail – that prescribing HCQ should be “…Ramped-Up Immediately as Key to the Pandemic Crisis.”
That’s just a small sample of Drs. Fareed, Jacobs, and Pompan’s rebuke to Fauci. Their letter contains a list of 121 very pointed questions that every member of Congress ought to be studying for when Fauci makes his next inevitable appearance required to ensure the mindless state of fear he’s so intent on keeping every man, woman, and child in America oppressed by 24/7 is sustained.
Many Americans will likely find all the facts about HCQ hard to believe given that Fauci has repeatedly insisted that “the overwhelming evidence of properly conducted randomized clinical trials indicate no therapeutic efficacy of hydroxychloroquine.”
Dr. Risch and the thousands of physicians worldwide who’ve had such great success using HCQ, however, recommend it only for high-risk patients within the first five to seven days of the onset of symptoms.
It also has to be administered in a “cocktail” along with zinc and another medication.
No one has ever claimed that HCQ is effective when taken by itself or more than a week after symptoms first appear.
Yet, as Drs. Fareed, Jacobs, and Pompan directly rebuke Fauci’s shameless deception, “NONE of the randomized controlled trials to which you refer were done in the first five to seven days after the onset of symptoms.”
Nor did any use the full cocktail consisting of hydroxychloroquine, Zinc, and Azithromycin.
The studies Fauci’s touting to suppress HCQ might as well be about some other drug entirely for all the relevance they have to the actual course of treatment those who’ve been saving lives with it since the pandemic began are recommending.
Fauci is also deceiving the public about the safety of HCQ.
Despite 65 years of use for malaria, and over 40 years for lupus and rheumatoid arthritis, with a well-established safety profile, [HCQ] has been deemed by you and the FDA as unsafe for use in the treatment of symptomatic COVID-19 infections.
Yale epidemiologist, Dr. Risch has rejected Fauci’s attempts to stifle HCQ by branding it unsafe as well, insisting that after 65 years on the market, there’s simply no evidence that hydroxychloroquine is any more dangerous to prescribe for COVID-19 than for malaria or any of the other ailments it’s been safely used to treat for decades.
