The HCQ study that determined the possibility of a comorbidity of the heart existed for HCQ patients was rapidly performed in Brazil. The public word that emerged from it, was that HCQ was dangerous and potentially lethal. This statement is false – the study did not have a control group so the effect of CQ treatment itself is unknown. Furthermore the bad result of lethality occurred in patients that were already very ill, with other conditions also, and administered twice the lethal dose of the treatment. It was also not verified in many caes, that the patients had COVID-19.
What a horrible public statement emerged from this. Science failed. Blame the editors and reviewers? Blame the press? Blame the CDC? I guess we’ve gotten accustomed to ignoring the real science, and making up whatever we want people to believe. They even created a fly-by-night company to retrieve records to demonstrate that HCQ was nontheraputic, which refused to disclose it sources of data. This is similar to all those bogus climate studies. Our national standards have slipped. In this case it may have hurt many patients that would have been helped by HCQ. People could have received outpatient treatment, and the hospitals/ER would have been safe for other patients. IT shows we seem to believe in making up anything as a therapeutic in a pandemic, especially if it costs a bundle. Certainly this is nothing unusual in DC, where giving away a quarter of a trillion dollars as a boondoggle, is becoming commonplace. The funds are given away when no one is looking, and now with the flimsiest of excuses. This is a corporate attack on our government, for it cannot continue like this. IT is looting within the beltway. You could call it globalism- but hey, besides the mafia, there is nothing much actually going on internationally. Maybe it is just robbery? We have created a wealthy class of criminals. Meanwhile some are having trouble breathing. Robbery is one thing, but the criminality finally is breaking out in places. The disorder they have caused is becoming a jeopardy for all our citizens. COVID fear and disinformation has endangered our elderly, and anyone with a serious health problem.
