After reporting on the success of chloroquine treatments earlier this week, we are here to pass on some more potentially good news. There are three international studies that support the earlier hypothesis! France, China and Australia have been studying the effects of chloroquine when it comes to treating the coronavirus and the results are encouraging.
The CDC is on board as well. According to President Trump, the CDC has already approved the drug for treatment of patients who are suffering from the coronavirus. Now, a former Army Flight Surgeon is providing additional context to these studies. Azithromycin is being combined with chloroquine to provide patients with a clean bill of health.
A 100 percent success rate has been reported. While there are obviously reasons to be skeptical, multiple international studies provide us with a small beacon of hope. Chloroquine is typically used to treat malaria patients but medical personnel is finding success when it comes to COVID-19.
At a time like this, we need all of the good news that we can possibly get. If this mixture sounds familiar to you, that is because it is the very same Z-Pac that we are usually given when we are suffering from bronchitis. The studies claim that the virus was cleared within a period of three days.
Update: As per @DiderRaoult – the study shows combination of HCQ * Azithromycin is most effective treatment
1 control group (placebo)
1 HCQ group
1 HCQ * Azithromycin group

The news is promising but we still have a long way to go. In the meantime, it is encouraging to see medical personnel making so much progress. This is especially true now that we are not going to have access to the proper vaccines for at least a one year period. After all, there is only so much social distancing that we can do before we have to get back to our normal routines.
China has done its best to send everyone home for an extended period and they are aggressively decontaminating their public spaces. Even with these efforts, they will not be sure if they have slowed the spread of the virus until citizens are allowed to return to work and school.
This is informative for the rest of us. Experts believe that we will need to enforce social distancing for at least a few more weeks, if not months. If this cure is successfully implemented, all of the people who were down on Donald Trump and his reaction to the coronavirus are going to be eating their words going forward.
It is too soon to say what is going to happen next, though. All we can do is hope that the predictions about this medication are accurate so that we can enjoy a return to normalcy as quickly as possible. These are unprecedented times and unforeseen measures are going to have to be taken if we are going to be able to survive the spread of the virus.
At a time like this, every option needs to be made available to the general public. The presence of a vaccine would certainly provide everyone with the peace of mind that they need but what happens until that day comes? There are far too many questions being asked that the average person simply does not have the answer to at the present time.
That’s what makes stories like this one so encouraging. The solutions that seem toughest to find can often be the simplest and this gives us a small measure of comfort during a very uncertain time. Doctors are already looking into the drug and we hope that there are more positive stories to report about citizens’ health being restored.
While the medications in questions have already been approved by the FDA for separate usage, these are not blanket policies. Hopefully, the pharmaceutical companies are able to come together and do the right thing. The health and welfare of the entire world is at stake and Big Pharma cannot allow themselves to lose sight of this important fact.
Those who are going to attempt to politicize the virus and the efforts to find the proper medication must be silenced. This is not a moment for either side of the aisle to claim superiority to the other. All nations and all people have to come together and make sure that we are doing everything that we can to keep each other safe.
This includes the governing bodies that are responsible for making the key decisions on vaccines and other medications. Thank goodness for our nation’s leaders, who are working tirelessly to ensure the continued health and safety of all Americans. We will pass along any additional developments of this nature the moment that they become available.
