    Chloroquine: The cure for covid-19?

    CHLOROQUINE: THE CURE FOR COVID-19?

    Chloroquine is likely the treatment sufficient for people who encounter extreme respiratory problems. We shouldn't be rushing to a future untested vaccine to save all humanity.

    This medicine has been used with Malaria and SARS. It is time to call an end to this massive stay-at-home policy -- with some precautions for those people who are most susceptible to the effects of flu.

    We don't need some rushed-to-the-market vaccine in hopes that it will work and that it will do more good than harm.

    Are you just having a bad day? Sorry about that. This world's stupidity should end quickly.

    One of the big concerns I have is that the media has over-hyped this. They like using anything they can to cause fear and to speak against the President. The media will promote fear even if there is nothing to fear but fear itself.

    Even those who are the most optimistic about it have not presented it as any sort of cure or vaccine but rather think it might help in treating those with it.

    That's what this guy wants to do with the chloroquine, rush to market and hope that it'll work.

    One of the big concerns I have is that the media has over-hyped this. They like using anything they can to cause fear and to speak against the President. The media will promote fear even if there is nothing to fear but fear itself.
    At one point of time when the virus was mostly in China, they were spreading some story about people collapsing in the street supposedly due to coronavirus. Of course, there was zero evidence that it was due to coronavirus. Demi has seen no reports about it happening in Italy or European countries, so most likely Fake News.

    Oh right. We rush to market medicine that has been used for 80 years. And we simply disregard the insight of Dr. Didier Raoult, MD, an Infectious Disease specialist.

    Also, the use of intraveneous Vitamin C is being used in China to heal people.

    We don't have to try to innoculate billions of people for something that can be treated sufficiently well.

    Several people overdosed on it in Nigeria after rushing to self-medicate with it (presumably acting on their own): https://www.bloomberg.com/news/artic...p-praised-drug

    Yes, experts will and should be cautious, because they don't want non-serious cases panicking and killing themselves by overdosing on this generic drug.

    From wikipedia, for you
    There is not enough evidence to determine whether chloroquine is safe to be given to people aged 65 and older. However, the drug is cleared by the kidneys and toxicity should be monitored carefully in people with poor kidney functions.[19]

    Chloroquine is very dangerous in overdose. It is rapidly absorbed from the gut. In 1961, a published compilation of case reports contained accounts of three children who took overdoses and died within 2.5 hours of taking the drug. While the amount of the overdose was not stated, the therapeutic index for chloroquine is known to be small.[22] Symptoms of overdose include headache, drowsiness, visual disturbances, nausea and vomiting, cardiovascular collapse, seizures, and sudden respiratory and cardiac arrest.[19]

    Chloroquine has been recommended by Chinese, South Korean and Italian health authorities for the treatment of COVID-19.[48][49] These agencies noted contraindications for people with heart disease or diabetes.[50]
    It's always been considered a dangerous drug.

    Doctors and hospitals are absolutely using it to treat, but they need to be careful with dosage since it's toxic, has significant contraindications, and can have serious side effects.

    If you have heart problems or diabetes (which are common in the USA) it's dangerous.
