He says that Taiwan, which has had only 7 deaths from Covid-19, Singapore, which has had only 26 deaths from Covid-19, and Japan, which has had only 982 deaths from Covid-19, are all using inhaled steroids to treat patients with Covid-19.Read the entire article | Email this article

How many lives could have been saved if the U.S. would have used hydroxychloroquine for Covid-19?
How many lives could have been saved if the U.S. would have used hydroxychloroquine, with or without azithromycin and zinc, to treat Covid-19?
4,076 people had died from Covid-19 in the US as of April 1, 2020 when infectious disease specialist Stephen Smith, MD said, “It’s a game changer [referring to using hydroxychloroquine plus azithromycin]. This is the beginning of the end of the pandemic.”

“Dr. [William] O’Neill says he has prescribed hydroxychloroquine to help numerous coronavirus patients, and saw improvement in all of them,” Sharyl Attkisson noted on her television show, Full Measure.
William O’Neill, MD is a cardiologist and medical director at the Henry Ford Health System which has six (6) hospitals in Detroit, Michigan.
Dr. O’Neill was one of the coauthors of the study (article posted here) which analyzed 2,541 COVID-19 patients hospitalized between March 10, 2020 and May 2, 2020 across Henry Ford Health System’s six (6) hospitals, and found that patients given hydroxychloroquine alone were 66% less likely to die than patients who were not given the drug; those given hydroxychloroquine plus azithromycin were 71% less likely to die.Read the entire article | Email this article

Hydroxychloroquine, 66% lower risk of death from Covid-19, Henry Ford Health
An analysis of 2,541 COVID-19 patients hospitalized between March 10, 2020 and May 2, 2020 across Henry Ford Health System’s six (6) hospitals found that patients given hydroxychloroquine alone were 66% less likely to die than patients who were not given the drug, and those given hydroxychloroquine plus azithromycin were 71% less likely to die.
None of the patients given hydroxychloroquine, with or without azithromycin, developed heart arrhythmias.
Among a subset of 380 COVID-19 patients (190 + 190) who were matched for age, gender, race, etc., those given hydroxychloroquine alone were 51% less likely to die than matched patients who were not given the drug.Read the entire article | Email this article

HYDROXYCHLOROQUINE | COVID-19
Countries using hydroxychloroquine have lower Covid deaths per million people vs U.S.
Countries using hydroxychloroquine to prevent and treat Covid-19 have a much lower death rate per capita than the U.S., who is preventing its use.
India, for example, has 12 Covid deaths per million people versus the U.S. with 389 Covid deaths per million people.
If the U.S. had the same Covid-19 death rate per capita as India, more than 124,000 lives in the U.S. would have been saved — only 4,055 people would have died from Covid-19 to date rather than 128,744 people.Read the entire article | Email this article

Vast majority of Covid-19 cases are mild to very mild as of June 2020 notes Texas ER executive
Here is a very interesting email sent to investigative reporter Alex Berenson, from a Managing Partner of a Texas based company that owns and operates 13 free-standing emergency clinics in the State of Texas, about how Covid-19 is becoming milder than it was a month or two ago.
The email reads, “Vast majority of the cases are mild to very mild symptoms. ... Vast majority of the patients are better within 2-3 days of the visit and most would be described as having a cold (a mild one at that) or the symptoms related to allergies. ... The hospital ICUs are filled with really sick people with non-covid issues. ... [hospital] discharge planners are being pressured to put Covid as primary diagnosis-as that pays significantly better.”
Alex Berenson posted screenshots of the email on Twitter.Read the entire article | Email this article
