Another day, more news and some more video covering both old ground and new. Glenn Beck had Dr. Simone Gold on his program recently for a segment, and it was quite revealing. They talk about the backlash against here, the institutional objection to Hydroxychloroquine, and more.
It’s a good segment (below). Dr. Gold surprises Glenn with a lot of facts, one of which our readers had way back in May when we shared the 2005 NIH Journal study that demonstrated the effectiveness of Chloroquine and Hydroxychloroquine on SARS CoV1.
The Virology Journal – the official publication of Dr. Fauci’s National Institutes of Health – published what is now a blockbuster article on August 22, 2005, under the heading – get ready for this – “Chloroquine is a potent inhibitor of SARS coronavirus infection and spread.” (Emphasis mine throughout.) Write the researchers, “We report…that chloroquine has strong antiviral effects on SARS-CoV infection of primate cells. These inhibitory effects are observed when the cells are treated with the drug either before or after exposure to the virus, suggesting both prophylactic and therapeutic advantage.”
(The 2005 NIH report can be read at either link in the pull quote)
Something we learn that’s new from this video is that according to Dr. Gold, SARS CoV1 and SARS CoV2 (COVID19) share 78% of the same biological makeup. They are similar enough that any mediation that was a “potent inhibitor of SARS coronavirus infection and spread” in 2005 should have been the first thing on the table when it became apparent that its close cousin was coming here with a vengeance.
When consulted, the first thing Fauci and NIH and the CDC (and FDA) should have recommended was that Pharma ramp up production of both. What did we get instead?
It is untested (a lie), has dangerous or unknown side-effects (a lie). Instead of allowing doctors and patients to decide on a case by case basis, the drug became rapidly inaccessible. How? State and Federal interference. State Medical Licensing and Pharmaceutical Boards via governors emergency orders shut down access. You know that tale, but Dr. Gold shared something else new.
According to her remarks, you could get these drugs over the counter (in most countries to this day), but she referred explicitly to France. It was an over the counter (OTC) drug, like aspirin or regular cold medicine. Widely available and affordable. But on January 13th, they changed it from OTC to a prescription-only drug.
Why? When they need it most, you make it harder to get?
Why do we continue to see mountains of press reports about how HCQ and Chloroquine must undergo months or years of testing(or that they are unsafe) when the NIH said, they worked for SARS-like infections fifteen years ago?
These drugs have been around for longer than most of us have been alive and are still over the counter medication in many countries. But not in Western or European countries.
Watch the video. It’s just over 11 minutes and more than fascinating.
