    A Hopeful cure for Covid-19?

    I have just read this article in The Daily Mail:
    'There is a cure': California biotech company claims it has discovered an antibody that can block '100%' of coronavirus infections.
    Here is the link:

    Definitely interesting, but at this point it's strictly in vitro, so calling a "cure" is really premature on their part.

    If they can manufacture it, rather than trying to collect plasma from people, then this would be the best interim solution. If it works in the real world.

    Antibodies will give you instant immunity for a time, but you will need to keep getting 'booster' shots every so often (monthly?) to replenish the antibodies. Your body can't make it's own antibodies from these antibodies. It has to make them by trial and error by having B-Lymphocytes create antibodies and when one works, that B-lymphocyte is cloned and released into the body to create more of those antibodies.

    Chloroquine still remains the best option.

    Source: Liberal Treated With Hydroxychloroquine Hopes He Still Dies Of COVID-19 To Prove Trump Is Stupid


    When Jeffrey Walton tested positive for COVID-19, he hoped for a speedy recovery. But since he has been treated with hydroxychloroquine, the experimental treatment President Donald Trump has been touting, he now hopes he dies quickly to help prove that Trump is an idiot.


    While Trump has been giving people hope that hydroxychloroquine could save lives, his political opponents have called it false hope and claimed Trump has no idea what he’s talking about. Walton, a lifelong Democrat and progressive, had joined in calling Trump “irresponsible” and an “ignoramus” and now has an opportunity to prove it by simply dying. “It’s such an opportunity, I don’t want to pass it up,” Walton said.

    Doctor Glenn Logan, Walton’s physician, says he’s been up and down. “After we gave him the hydroxychloroquine, he got really excited about the idea of dying to prove Trump is dumb, and his good mood helped his condition, and he started to improve. Because that would only help Trump, his getting healthier made him depressed, which caused his condition to deteriorate. Which made him really happy. Which helped him recover and... Well, it’s been a weird cycle.”

    Dr. Logan has been warning Walton that there is a chance he could fully recover. Walton is trying to prepare himself for this -- a world where everything isn’t black and white and Trump can be right about some things -- but he insists he’d much rather die.

    The above is satire from the Babylon Bee but it is amazing how often the folks on network and cable news stations acted visibly delighted whenever they read a story that cast doubt on the effectiveness of hydroxychloroquine. This was especially true for the shoddy VA study.

    This is TDS in action. They would rather that hydroxychloroquine not be beneficial so that Trump would be wrong even if it means more deaths.

    I posted that Bee piece on Facebook with the comment that the patient should have just had one of his fellow libs smother him with a pillow, since the CDC would still have counted it as a Covid death.

    It's crazy how this issue has become so partisan. You'd think something that just might have a ray of hope in all this would be something to at least treat with some positivity. If it turns out to be a real medical cure, this is going to turn out to be one of those realizations (like Covington, Jussie Smollett, etc.) to a whole lot of people just how utterly tribal left and fake the MSM have become in their reporting.
