      Dr. Didier Raoult would prefer that mass testing is used and HQ applied early rather than as a last resort to serious patients.

      “…Raoult was part of a clinical trial that in which hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin healed 90% of Covid-19 cases if they were tested very early. (Early, massive testing is at the heart of the successful South Korean strategy.)

      Raoult is opposed to the total lockdown of sane individuals and possible carriers – which he considers “medieval,” in an anachronistic sense. He’s in favor of massive testing (which, besides South Korea, was successful in Singapore, Taiwan and Vietnam) and a fast treatment with hydroxychloroquine. Only contaminated individuals should be confined. ..”

          The virus that causes COVID-19 remains for several hours to days on surfaces and in aerosols, a new study published in the New England Journal of Medicine found.

          The study suggests that people may acquire the coronavirus through the air and after touching contaminated objects. Scientists discovered the virus is detectable for up to three hours in aerosols, up to four hours on copper, up to 24 hours on cardboard and up to two to three days on plastic and stainless steel.

          “This virus is quite transmissible through relatively casual contact, making this pathogen very hard to contain,” said James Lloyd-Smith, a co-author of the study and a UCLA professor of ecology and evolutionary biology. “If you’re touching items that someone else has recently handled, be aware they could be contaminated and wash your hands.” […]

              It’s already well known that influenza can drift through the air. It’s not at all surprising that SARS-CoV-2 can as well.

            Remains on certain hard surfaces BUT starts dying quickly, quicker in direct heat, and as it dies, loses its ability to infect.

            This behavior of a virus was detailed by the doctor interviewed on Dan Bongino’s show. He debunked the WaPoo scare article that the virus could live for 9 days. He said that if it actually lives for 9 days, it could infect for only 2-3 of them at most and in heat such a direct sun, much less.

            Handwashing still best preventative. HCQ sounds like the next best.

      The “no toilet paper” thing is odd. Like, WHERE THE HELL DID IT ALL GO? I mean, how many freaking rolls of T.P. are manufactured in this country per year? A billion? More Anyhoo.

      Due to my somewhat… ahem… anal proclivity to “stock up” when buying early and restocking the essentials around the house… light bulbs, T.P., whatever… we’re all good with the T.P. for a few more weeks. But I felt it was my duty as a responsible husband and father to come up with…

      The Piddles Family Plan B For Significant And Prolonged Toilet Paper Shortage

      For whatever reason, it seems rolls of Bounty Select-A-Size are plentiful. A Bounty Of Bounty, if you will. I was in Walmart last week, and the T.P. isle was barren, save for four 8-packs of Bounty Select-A-Size. I exclaimed out loud: “Don’t mind if I do!”, and grabbed two. A few days later my wife and daughter come back from the store with another 8-pack. I go to CVS the other night… boxes of single rolls sitting right there. It’s all Bounty, too. The good stuff. High Test.

      So, I think you know where I’m going with this. Sure, it’s not flushable… but I figure we’ll cross that bridge when we get to it. Hopefully not. But I also just so happen to have a box of like one thousand of those plastic tee-shirt bags that I use for scooping cat litter. Fitting, I suppose.

    Talked to a friend who is Chinese, her husband is Chinese, they live and work in the U.S. and do not plan on going back to China for any reason, whatsoever.

    My friend said her parents — in China — are doing great. She said they don’t live anywhere close to a “problem area,” and most of the people she knows don’t either. She said the Chinese government lies.

    On a side note, in case you have not seen it a hundred times already, here is the letter from Dr. Zlenko, with the drugs he has successfully used to treat patients with the wuflu — the same drugs taken by the man on his death bed who came back and said he felt as though he was never sick.

    Dr. Vladimir (Zev) Zlenko
    Board Certified Family Practitioner
    501 Rt 208, Monroe, NY 10950
    845-238-0000

    March 23, 2020

    To all medical professionals around the world:

    My name is Dr. Zev Zelenko and I practice medicine in Monroe, NY. For the last 16 years, I have cared for approximately 75% of the adult population of Kiryas Joel, which is a very close knit community of approximately 35,000 people in which the infection spread rapidly and unchecked prior to the imposition of social distancing.

    As of today my team has tested approximately 200 people from this community for Covid-19, and 65% of the results have been positive. If extrapolated to the entire community, that means more than 20,000 people are infected at the present time. Of this group, I estimate that there are 1500 patients who are in the high-risk category (i.e. >60, immunocompromised, comorbidities, etc).

    Given the urgency of the situation, I developed the following treatment protocol in the pre-hospital setting and have seen only positive results:
    1. Any patient with shortness of breath regardless of age is treated.
    2. Any patient in the high-risk category even with just mild symptoms is treated.
    3. Young, healthy and low risk patients even with symptoms are not treated (unless their circumstances change and they fall into category 1 or 2).

    My out-patient treatment regimen is as follows:
    1. Hydroxychloroquine 200mg twice a day for 5 days
    2. Azithromycin 500mg once a day for 5 days
    3. Zinc sulfate 220mg once a day for 5 days

    The rationale for my treatment plan is as follows. I combined the data available from China and South Korea with the recent study published from France (sites available on request). We know that hydroxychloroquine helps Zinc enter the cell. We know that Zinc slows viral replication within the cell. Regarding the use of azithromycin, I postulate it prevents secondary bacterial infections. These three drugs are well known and usually well tolerated, hence the risk to the patient is low.

    Since last Thursday, my team has treated approximately 350 patients in Kiryas Joel and another 150 patients in other areas of New York with the above regimen.

    Of this group and the information provided to me by affiliated medical teams, we have had ZERO deaths, ZERO hospitalizations, and ZERO intubations. In addition, I have not heard of any negative side effects other than approximately 10% of patients with temporary nausea and diarrhea.

    In sum, my urgent recommendation is to initiate treatment in the outpatient setting as soon as possible in accordance with the above. Based on my direct experience, it prevents acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), prevents the need for hospitalization and saves lives.

    With much respect,

    Dr. Zev Zelenko
    cc: President Donald J. Trump; Mr. Mark Meadows, Chief of Staff

      Sounds like a sensible protocol until further data is published. IMO, (for what that is worth) the use of hydroxychloroquine is more questionable for prevention, especially in the elderly. The higher risk group for serious COVID-19 complication are over the age of 65 (?) and this is the same group that is at increased risk for cardiac rhythm complications with hydroxychlorquine. Need more data, which should be coming out fairly quickly.

  15. I believe this strain came out of that bio lab in China and the government has no idea what it is or how to treat it because it is a new UNKNOWN. Its a learning curve and I believe PDJT is doing everything in his power to protect us.

    Give the Boss a break. We can speculate, bloviate, predict, complain, suggest, demand, wish for, hope and pray all we want. The bottom line is we don’t know. Blame the Dems if it makes you feel better (it works for me).

    Trust PDJT; he’s the best hope we have.
