    Following Prof. Montagnier's discovery the SARS-CoV-2 bug contains Malaria genetic material, it may be no surprise that that bug displays some of the chronic behavior of that Malaria component:


    Stable, mending patients become critically ill with little warning. Doctors aren’t sure why… ‘Second-week crash

    https://www.investmentwatchblog.com/...nd-week-crash/

    […]

    But people with the coronavirus can crash before or after they are hospitalized. Doctors report seeing patients who wait too long to seek care, including those who do not feel the symptoms of plummeting oxygen levels, such as shortness of breath, until they are in crisis. No one is sure why. Many people’s lungs remain flexible for a while, allowing carbon dioxide out and forestalling the sensation they aren’t getting enough oxygen.
    The people who actually crash, they’ve actually been sick a while,” said Merceditas Villanueva, an associate professor of medicine at the Yale School of Medicine.

    “They’ve underestimated how sick they are, or they’ve just waited.”

    Dozens Of Patients In Wuhan Have Developed 'Chronic' Coronavirus Infections

    by Tyler Durden
    Fri, 05/01/2020 - 04:55

    A few weeks ago, we reported on several Reddit threads where COVID-19 patients from around the world - many of them young men - shared their struggles with a virus that they just couldn't seem to shake. Some patients who were six or seven weeks post-confirmation (meaning they probably had contracted the virus two months earlier, or possibly even longer) complained of symptoms coming back in waves, while others complained that they were still testing positive for the virus weeks after their symptoms disappeared.

    Though rare, these cases have alarmed researchers who fear that some patients might become chronic carriers of the virus. And the scientists leading China's response to the outbreak are particularly concerned about dozens of apparently chronic patients in Hubei who still haven't cleared the virus, even as the region - which was bolted shut during the outbreak crisis - slowly reopens to the outside world.

    According to Chinese business newswire Caixin, more than 30 patients in Hubei Province have seemingly recovered from COVID-19, but continue to test positive, said Jiao Yahui, an inspector at the National Health Commission, in an April 24 interview with the state broadcaster.

    Typically, patients infected with COVID-19 will test negative on nucleic acid throat swabs roughly 20 days after detection. However, for a small number of patients, throat swabs will produce positive tests for more than 40 days. Some patients are still producing positive swabs, despite being infected in the first wave of patients.

    Of course, the existence of patients who still test positive raises the question of whether they are still infectious. It's certainly possible that these tests might be picking up errant pieces of genetic material leftover from the infection, but it's also possible that the virus could have burrowed deep enough to become chronic, though, as scientists say, that's not 'typical' behavior for a naturally occurring coronavirus.

    Hold that thought.

    Scientists say there's "little possibility" that humans can be lifelong carriers of this virus. But it's not impossible.

    Whatever the reality might be, infectious disease experts in China are recommending that these patients be kept in isolation in what we imagine has become a singularly hellish experience for these unfortunate patients.

    Whether this is evidence of chronic infection, or simply an extended process of "viral shedding", the issue has perplexed some of China's greatest virologists.
    Doctors in China and abroad are puzzled by some patients’ longer process of of viral shedding. In late March, a preprint essay by Wuhan military doctors Wang Qingshu and Niu Hongming discussed a patient who remained positive in virus tests for 49 days.
    The patient, a middle-aged male, showed fever and other symptoms Jan. 25 but recovered after a week of medication. He tested positive for the virus Feb. 8 after one of his family members was confirmed with the infection. The man took nine nucleic acid tests in the following weeks, and only one test on March 11 showed negative.
    He also received two antibody tests in late February and mid-March, reading positive for one form of immunoglobulin but negative for another. Such results suggest that the infection has lingered for a while and faded from the acute phase, the doctors wrote.
    The patient received plasma therapy March 15, which involves transfusing antibody-rich blood components into patients. He had high fever hours after the infusion, but his temperature returned to normal the next day. His virus tests on the following two days turned negative.
    "Without plasma therapy, this patient may turn to a chronic infection case," the doctors wrote in the paper. "We want to know how many patients have similar situations.” The authors said they were unable to conclude whether such patients could infect others or how long their infections could last."
    The patient was part of a family cluster, the researchers wrote. One of his infected family members, an elderly female, also took a longer-than-normal period to test negative. The authors said the cases suggested that family-cluster infections may be less virulent but lead to longer periods for patients to resolve the virus.
    What was that again about SARS-CoV-2 being a "man made" virus?

    --------------------------------------------------------------

    Hence that warning of those PTBs there is another wave coming soon to enforce mandatory vaccination?

    Big Pharma Beware: Dr. Montagnier Shines New Light on COVID-19 and The Future of Medicine

    Fort Russ Anglo 5Headline NewsNews
    Last updated May 1, 2020

    By Matthew Ehret
    First posted at Strategic Culture Foundation


    This April 16th, Dr. Luc Montagnier became a household name around the world. This occurred as the controversial virologist decided to publicly state his support for the theory that Covid-19 is indeed a laboratory-generated creation and not a naturally occurring effect of viral evolution.

    Referring to a study published at the Kusama School of Biology in New Dehli on January 31st, Montagnier (the 2008 Nobel Prize winner for his 1983 discovery of the HIV virus) made the point that the specific occurrence of HIV RNA viral segments spliced surgically within the COVID-19 genome could not have originated naturally and he described it in the following words:
    We have carefully analyzed the description of the genome of this RNA virus. We weren’t the first, a group of Indian researchers tried to publish a study showing that the complete genome of this virus that has within the sequences of another virus: that of HIV.”
    While the Indian team was induced to retract their publication under immense pressure from the mainstream medical establishment (which never bothered to seriously refute the content of the study’s research but rather used the “random-mutation-makes-anything-possible” argument), Montagnier stated “scientific truth always emerges”.

    Not China: Montagnier Misdiagnoses the Culprit
    Montagnier’s political ignorance became all too clear when he was asked who the culprit could possibly be.

    By asserting his belief that China’s BSL4 lab in Wuhan was the source, Montagnier has fallen into a trap set by Anglo-American Intelligence circles which have been promoting a military confrontation between the USA and China for a very long time.

    Now even though Montagnier denies that China released this virus with malicious intent (unlike many fanatical droves of neoconservatives currently itching for war), the “Wuhan Lab origin” hypothesis completely ignores the reality of the Pentagon’s globally extended 25 bioweapons laboratories which have openly created novel coronaviruses including varieties that arose in bats as journalist Whitney Webb’s remarkable February 2020 paper demonstrated.

    Even though a 2014-2017 temporary ban on “dual-use” funding was imposed onto America’s bioweapons research, nothing prevented this work from occurring internationally or even covertly within the 11 military labs on American soil itself and tied to the same Fort Detrick that was shut down in July 2019 under suspicious circumstances. As I pointed out in my previous paper The Project for a New American Century, 9/11 and Bioweapons, over $50 billion has been spent on bioweapons research since 2001 which the Project for a New American Century manifesto claimed would play a major role in the arsenal of 21st century warfare stating:
    advanced forms of biological warfare that can “target” specific genotypes may transform biological warfare from the realm of terror to a politically useful tool”.
    Luc Montagnier’s Wave Therapy: Quackery or Brilliance?
    The most powerful aspect of Montagnier’s April 16th intervention into world politics in my view is not really found in his support for the laboratory-origins theory, but rather in the scientist’s often overlooked proposition for an international crash program in something called electromagnetic wave therapy. Rather than investing in vaccines, Montagnier has explained that it were much wiser for nations of the world to launch a crash project into a very different approach to viral treatments than is currently common in polite society saying:
    I think we can make interference waves which are behind the RNA sequences that can eliminate those sequences with waves and consequently stop the pandemic”
    Before brushing this off as “quackery” as so many are wont to do, one should keep in mind that President Trump himself has indicated his interest in Montagnier’s approach in his April 23rd briefing telling reporters:
    Supposing we hit the body with a tremendous … whether it’s ultraviolet or just very powerful light. And I think you said that hasn’t been checked, but you are going to test it… And then I said supposing you brought the light inside the body, which you can do either through the skin or in some other way. And I think you said you are going to test it.”
    While Trump has been vilely attacked as “unscientific” for these utterances, it is only due to the vast ignorance of Montagnier’s incredible discoveries into the electromagnetic properties of life that such mockery can go unchallenged. Montagnier’s innovations into “bleaching therapy” which Trump referenced in the same speech are also much more complex than mainstream detractors assume and has nothing to do with simply “injecting”disinfectants into the blood stream. These therapies are highly interconnected with the electromagnetic waves emitted by certain types of bacteria which Montagnier has discovered to be the most likely driving mechanism to many of the diseases both chronic and acute plaguing humanity. More will be said on that below.

    What is Optical Biophysics and What did Montagnier Discover?
    Optical biophysics is the study of the electromagnetic properties of the physics of life. This means paying attention to the light emissions and absorption frequencies from cells, DNA, and molecules of organic matter, how these interface with water (making up over 75% of a human body) and moderated by the nested array of magnetic fields located on the quantum level and stretching up to the galactic level.

    Not to discount the bio-chemical nature of life which is hegemonic in the health science realm, the optical biophysician asks: which of these is PRIMARY in growth, replication, and division of labor of individual cells or entire species of organisms? Is it the chemical attributes of living matter or the electromagnetic properties?
    Let me explain the paradox a bit more.

    There are approximately 40 trillion highly differentiated cells in the average human body, each performing very specific functions and requiring an immense field of coherence and intercommunication. Every second approximately 10 million of those cells die, to be replaced by 10 million new cells being born. Many of those cells are made up of bacteria, and much of the DNA and RNA within those cells is made up of viruses (mostly dormant), but which can be activated/deactivated by a variety of methods both chemical and electromagnetic.

    Here’s the big question:

    HOW might this complex system be maintained by chemical processes alone- either over the course of a day, month or an entire lifetime?

    The simple physics of motion of enzymes which carry information in the body from one location to another simply doesn’t come close to accounting for the information coordination required among all parts. This is where Montagnier’s research comes in.

    After winning the 2008 Nobel Prize, Dr. Montagnier published a revolutionary yet heretical 2010 paper called “DNA Waves and Water” which took the medical community by storm. In this paper, Montagnier demonstrated how low frequency electromagnetic radiation within the radio wave part of the spectrum was emitted from bacterial and viral DNA and how said light was able to both organize water and transmit information! The results of his experiments were showcased wonderfully in this 8 min video:

    Using a photo-amplifying device invented by Dr. Jacques Benveniste in the 1980s to capture the ultra low light emissions from cells, Montagnier filtered out all particles of bacterial DNA from a tube of water and discovered that the post-filtered solutions containing no material particles continued to emit ultra low frequency waves! This became more fascinating when Montagnier showed that under specific conditions of a 7 Hz background field (the same as the Schumann resonance which naturally occurs between the earth’s surface and the ionosphere), the non-emitting tube of water that had never received organic material could be induced to emit frequencies when placed in close proximity with the emitting tube! Even more interesting is that when base proteins, nucleotides and polymers (building blocks of DNA) were put into the pure water, near perfect clones of the original DNA were formed!

    Dr. Montagnier and his team hypothesized that the only way for this to happen was if the DNA’s blueprint was somehow imprinted into the very structure of water itself resulting in a form of “water memory” that had earlier been pioneered by Jacques Benveniste, the results of which are showcased in this incredible 2014 documentary “Water Memory”.

    An alternate link for those outside the country restrictions for the above video.

    Just as Benveniste suffered one of the most ugly witch hunts in modern times (led in large measure by Nature Magazine in 1988), Montagnier’s Nobel prize did not protect him from a similar fate as an international slander campaign has followed him over the past 10 years of his life. Nearly 40 Nobel prize winners have signed a petition denouncing Montagnier for his heresy and the great scientist was forced to even flee Europe to escape what he described as a culture of “intellectual terror”. In response to this slander, Montagnier stated to LaCroix magazine:
    “I’m used to attacks from these academics who are just retired bureaucrats, closed off from all innovation. I have the scientific proofs of what I say”.
    Describing the greatest challenges to advancing this research, Montagnier stated:
    We have chosen to work with the private sector because no funds could come from public institutions. The Benveniste case has made it so that anyone who takes an interest in the memory of water is considered… I mean it smells of sulphur. It’s Hell.”
    Casting Montagnier’s Research in a New Light
    In a 2011 interview, Dr. Montagnier recapitulated the consequences of his discoveries:
    The existence of a harmonic signal emanating from DNA can help to resolve long-standing questions about cell development, for example how the embryo is able to make its manifold transformations, as if guided by an external field. If DNA can communicate its essential information to water by radio frequency, then non-material structures will exist within the watery environment of the living organism, some of them hiding disease signals and others involved in the healthy development of the organism.”
    With these insights in mind, Montagnier has discovered that many of the frequencies of EM emissions from a wide variety of microbial DNA is also found in the blood plasmas of patients suffering from influenza A, Hepatitis C, and even many neurological diseases not commonly thought of as bacteria-influenced such as Parkinsons, Multiple Sclerosis, Rheumathoid Arthritis and Alzheimers. In recent years, Montagnier’s teams even found certain signals in the blood plasmas of people with autism and several varieties of cancers!

    Over a dozen French doctors have taken Montagnier’s ideas seriously enough to prescribe antibiotics to treat autism over the course of six years and in opposition to conventional theories, have found that amidst 240 patients treated, 4 out of 5 saw their symptoms either dramatically regress or disappear completely!

    These results imply again that certain hard-to-detect species of light emitting microbes are closer to the cause of these ills than the modern pharmaceutical industry would like to admit.

    A New Domain of Thinking: Why Big Pharma Should Be Afraid
    As the filmed 2014 experiment demonstrated, Montagnier went even further to demonstrate that the frequencies of wave emissions within a filtrate located in a French laboratory can be recorded and emailed to another laboratory in Italy where that same harmonic recording was infused into tubes of non-emitting water causing the Italian tubes to slowly begin emitting signals! These DNA frequencies were then able to structure the Italian water tubes from the parent source a thousand miles away resulting in a 98% exact DNA replica!

    Standing as we are, on the cusp of so many exciting breakthroughs in medical science, we should ask: what could these results mean for the multi-billion dollar pharmaceutical industrial complex which relies on keeping the world locked into a practice of chemical drugs and vaccines?

    Speaking to this point, Montagnier stated:
    The day that we admit that signals can have tangible effects, we will use them. From that moment on we will be able to treat patients with waves. Therefore it’s a new domain of medicine that people fear of course. Especially the pharmaceutical industry… one day we will be able to treat cancers using frequency waves.”
    Montagnier’s friend and collaborator Marc Henry a professor of Chemistry and Quantum Mechanics at the University of Strasbourg stated:
    If we treat with frequencies and not with medicines it becomes extremely cost effective regarding the amount of money spent. We spend a lot of money to find the frequencies, but once they have been found, it costs nothing to treat.”
    Whether produced in a lab as Montagnier asserts or having appeared naturally as Nature Magazine asserts, the fact remains that the current coronavirus pandemic has accelerated a collapse of the world financial system and forced the leaders of the world to discuss the reality of a needed new paradigm and new world economic order. Whether that new system will be driven by Pharmaceutical cartels, and sociopathic bankers running global health policy for a technocratic elite of social engineers or whether it will be driven by nation states shaping the terms of that new system around human needs, remains to be seen.

    If nation states manage to stay in the driver’s seat of this new system, then it will have to be driven by certain fundamental principles of healthcare for all, science practice reform and broader political/economic reform whereby the sacredness of human life is placed above all considerations of monetary profit. In this light, such crash programs into long term projects in space science, asteroid defense, and Lunar/Mars development will be as necessary in the astrophysical domain as crash programs in fusion energy will be in the atomic domain. Uniting both worlds, is the domain of life sciences that intersects the electromagnetic properties of atoms, cells and DNA with the large scale electromagnetic properties of the Earth, Sun and galaxy as a whole.

    Researchers from the University Of Surrey found that in Enshi, which has the highest selenium intake in China, the cure rate for covid-19 was almost triple the average for all the other cities in Hubei Province. In Heilongjiang Province, where selenium intake is among the lowest in the world, the death rate was almost five times as high as the average of all the other provinces outside of Hubei.

    A role for selenium may also help explain the blood clotting in covid-19, because selenium is known to have an anti-clotting effect.

    In studies, supplementation of between 50 and 400 mcg/day of selenium has been used. The average daily intake is around 60 mcg/day, and the tolerable upper intake level is 300 to 450 mcg/day. So 50 mcg/day is enough to boost selenium above the average intake, and will be safe long term and so should be used for prevention. The dose in the Naturelo One Daily multivitamin is around that. If someone actually gets the coronavirus, then they should take an additional 100 mcg/day, which is available in a selenium supplement.

    Brazil nuts are the best food source of selenium, but the amount varies widely with a selenium content of between 8 and 219 mcg/nut, with the most common value of 96 mcg/nut from the USDA database. Because the amount of selenium in brazil nuts varies widely, taking one brazil nut per day for treatment could do almost nothing, on the other hand taking many to ensure sufficient selenium might lead to an overdose, with effects including nausea, vomiting, and loss of fingernails and/or hair. For treatment, to be sure you're getting the correct amount of selenium, it is recommended to take selenium from capsules rather than food.

    I think having read/watched quite a few Dr's talks that there is no real Covid 19. as separate from the seasonal flu.
    Each year the flu is different some, years more contagious - higher death rate.
    This year it has been hijacked and for nefarious reason used to justify lockdown.
    Lockdown is a serious threat to human life and well being and of course the financial ruination of more than a few--that has health consequences too.
    Social distancing is a threat to health because it does not allow the immune system to develop through exposure to flu -- call it what you will.
    The immune system has saved millions of lives since time began --it is extremely efficient and now we are being told it cant handle this years virus. WHY?

    The patients that have experienced extreme symptoms may be living in a polluted atmosphere -- it may even be because they have been exposed to 5G -- which has not been tested in the normal way.
    The frequency coming from 5G --90 -- whatever-- is known to be dangerous.
    It may cause the body lung damage.
    Investigate dont take my word for it.

    So my thought for good health is, treat this as a variation of normal seasonal flu.
    Dont have the inoculation.

    Vitamin D Level Is Directly Correlated to COVID-19 Outcome
    by Dr. Joseph Mercola
    May 08, 2020
    https://articles.mercola.com/sites/a..._rid=867378680

    Using a classification of symptoms based on previous research, he employed statistical analysis to compare the differences in clinical outcomes against the levels of vitamin D. Of the 212 people, 49 had mild disease; 59 had ordinary disease; 56 were severe and 48 were critical.
    "STORY AT-A-GLANCE
    An analysis of medical records revealed a direct correlation between levels of vitamin D and the severity of illness in people infected with SARS-CoV-2
    Low vitamin D levels are normally found in people with dark skin. This may be a compelling factor in the higher rates of COVID-19 illness and mortality
    The U.K. recommends vitamin D supplementation during this pandemic, concerned people are not getting enough sunlight; yet the U.S. continues to focus on drugs and vaccine production
    Vitamin D needs vary widely, so it's important to get your levels tested before deciding how much vitamin D3 supplement you should take
    There is strong scientific evidence vitamin D plays a central role in your immune response and your ability to fight infections. In this video, Ivor Cummins, biochemist and chief program officer for Irish Heart Disease Awareness, explains how recent studies supporting higher levels of vitamin D may reduce your risk of negative outcomes from COVID-19.

    He also singles out some of the conditions associated with low vitamin D levels, such as low sun exposure, insulin resistance and high levels of inflammation.

    In 2017, a review of randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trials using vitamin D2 or D3 was published in the BMJ.1 The data revealed vitamin D supplementation was "safe and it protected against acute respiratory tract infection overall." They found people who were most deficient experienced the greatest benefit.

    I am beyond excited to announce a groundbreaking new study by an organization that we have supported for over 13 years, GrassRootsHealth. Many of you have ordered their vitamin D test in the past, and the funds from that were used to do this clinical trial that could change the entire treatment strategy for COVID-19.

    A recent clinical trial to investigate the efficacy of vitamin D against COVID-19 was announced April 3, 2020.2 Days later, Mark Alipio — who received no funding for his work — published a preprint letter3,4 in which he released data from an analysis of 212 people with lab-confirmed COVID-19 and for whom there were serum 25(OH)D levels available. You can read Alipio's full study here.https://www.grassrootshealth.net/wp-...04-22-2020.pdf

    Using a classification of symptoms based on previous research, he employed statistical analysis to compare the differences in clinical outcomes against the levels of vitamin D. Of the 212 people, 49 had mild disease; 59 had ordinary disease; 56 were severe and 48 were critical.

    In the initial study group of 212 patients (see Table 1 below), 55 had normal vitamin D levels, which Alipio defined as greater than 30 ng/ml; 80 had insufficient levels of 21 to 29 ng/ml and 77 had deficient levels of less than 20 ng/ml. Vitamin D levels were strongly correlated to the severity of the illness experienced. It is important to note that most experts consider 30 ng/ml half of what an optimum vitamin D level should be, which is 60 to 80 ng/ml.


    Of the 49 with mild illness, 47 had normal vitamin D levels. For those of you who are not good with math that means that 96% of the patients with mild illness had "normal" levels of vitamin D. Note again this "normal" level was above 30, and most experts would raise that to 60.

    Of the combined 104 with severe or critical illness, only four had normal levels of vitamin D. That is 4% or the reciprocal of the mild group. How much stronger a correlation could one hope for? Alipio concluded:5

    "… this study provides substantial information to clinicians and health policy-makers. Vitamin D supplementation could possibly improve clinical outcomes of patients infected with Covid-2019 based on increasing odds ratio of having a mild outcome when serum (OH)D level increases. Further research may conduct randomized controlled trials and large population studies to evaluate this recommendation."
    Further Evidence Vitamin D Significantly Impacts Outcomes
    The writers of a recent editorial in Alimentary Pharmacology & Therapeutics6 used a different metric, but arrived at similar results. They argued a marked variation in mortality occurs above or below 35 degrees North latitude. This is also the line above which it is not possible for people to get enough sunlight to retain vitamin D during the winter months.

    When the mortality per million is plotted against latitude, the results suggest vitamin D plays a role in the outcome of infection with SARS-CoV-2. Data were gathered from countries reporting more than 150 people infected by April 15, 2020.

    Although Nordic countries are far north of the demarcation line, vitamin D deficiency is also relatively low, potentially from widespread use of supplements. In countries where deficiency is common, such as Spain and Italy, mortality rates have been higher. The writers stress the importance of vitamin D on the outcome of infection, concluding that, while there is modest evidence, it protects against infection:7

    "… the hypothesis is not that vitamin D would protect against SARS-CoV-2 infection but that it could be very important in preventing the cytokine storm and subsequent acute respiratory distress syndrome that is commonly the cause of mortality."

    A second paper8 published in April 2020 hypothesized that vitamin D protects the body against SARS-CoV-2 infections and sought to assess if there was an association between vitamin D levels and the number of COVID-19 infections. The data included only European countries and found a significant relationship between the mean (average) vitamin D level and the number of infections.9

    People who were most vulnerable to this respiratory infection were the most deficient. They concluded the results support the advice to supplement with vitamin D to protect against the SARS-CoV-2 infection. These results support the 2017 review of studies published in the BMJ noted above.10

    Yet another paper evaluated the role vitamin D deficiency plays in preventing respiratory infections and found similar results.11 The researchers wrote that vitamin D had "a significant protective effect" and reduced the risk of an acute respiratory infection from 60% to 32% in participants. The researchers also wrote vitamin D may help prevent respiratory infections and lower antibiotic use.

    African-Americans Experiencing Higher Rates of Infection
    A letter to the editor was then published in the BMJ, signed by 30 scientists from around the world, including Alipio.12 They pointed out the disproportionately high number of individuals who are Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME), or those living in care homes in the U.K. who die from COVID-19.

    They also identified obesity as another risk factor, with co-morbid conditions including diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Each group of people — those living in care homes, BAME and obese — also tends to have lower levels of vitamin D.

    The letter included the research results from Alipio's preprint letter, indicating the 30 scientists agreed with how the data was collected and analyzed, as well as the conclusions. The group identified the lengthy process vaccines require and the 100 years of research on vitamin D.

    They hypothesized that vitamin D has clinical relevance to COVID-19 and may reduce the number of fatalities. Although there is a need for clear clinical evidence with research, it's important to note the widespread vitamin D deficiency, including the risk groups mentioned. They quote Dr. Hugh Sinclair, who nearly 100 years ago observed:13

    "The deficiency of any nutrient which is essential for every tissue will eventually lead to abnormal function in every tissue. That is so incontrovertibly obvious that I am continually astonished it must be repeatedly forcefully restated."

    They then went on to give a reason for why vitamins have so often been overlooked:14

    "Human nature is such that simple solutions to complex issues, for example vitamin C for scurvy, and hand washing prior to baby delivery, are often not readily embraced; but surely the scale and impact of the COVID-19 pandemic demands all avenues are fully explored; more so when no other effective treatment strategies as yet exist.

    A safe simple step, the correction of a deficiency state, vitamin D this time, convincingly holds out a potential, significant, feasible 'COVID-19 mitigation remedy."

    Others connect the heavy toll in the African-American community with an increased prevalence of obesity, diabetes and high blood pressure, which are risk factors for increased severity of COVID-19.15 In the states of Maryland and Louisiana and the metropolises of New York, Chicago and Washington, D.C., the percentages of BAME individuals dying from probable COVID-19 are higher than the percentages of BAME who live in the area.

    However, while there is a correlation between the higher prevalence of health conditions that increase disease severity in the African-American population, there is also a higher prevalence of vitamin D insufficiency due to reduced production.16 Darker pigmentation produces less vitamin D with exposure to the sun.

    Vitamin D in COVID-19 Treatment
    Findings from The Irish Longitudinal Study on Ageing (TILDA)17 and a vitamin D review paper18 published in the journal Nutrients, April 2, 2020, also suggest vitamin D deficiency could have serious implications for COVID-19. As reported by Medical Xpress, April 6, 2020:19

    "The report,20 'Vitamin D deficiency in Ireland — Implications for COVID-19. Results from the Irish Longitudinal Study on Ageing (TILDA),' finds that vitamin D plays a critical role in preventing respiratory infections, reducing antibiotic use, and boosting the immune system response to infections.

    With one in eight Irish adults under 50 deficient in vitamin D, the report highlights the importance of increasing intake … TILDA researchers recommend that adults over 50 should take supplements — not just in winter, but all year round if they don't get enough sun …

    Professor Rose Anne Kenny, principal investigator of TILDA, said: 'We have evidence to support a role for vitamin D in the prevention of chest infections, particularly in older adults who have low levels. In one study Vitamin D reduced the risk of chest infections to half in people who took supplements.

    Though we do not know specifically of the role of vitamin D in COVID infections, given its wider implications for improving immune responses ... at-risk cohorts should ensure they have an adequate intake of vitamin D.'"

    The second paper, published in the journal Nutrients, carries the telling title, "Evidence That Vitamin D Supplementation Could Reduce Risk of Influenza and COVID-19 Infections and Death."21 As reported in the abstract:

    "This article reviews the roles of vitamin D in reducing the risk of respiratory tract infections, knowledge about the epidemiology of influenza and COVID-19, and how vitamin D supplementation might be a useful measure to reduce risk. Through several mechanisms, vitamin D can reduce risk of infections.

    Those mechanisms include inducing cathelicidins and defensins that can lower viral replication rates and reducing concentrations of pro-inflammatory cytokines that produce the inflammation that injures the lining of the lungs, leading to pneumonia, as well as increasing concentrations of anti-inflammatory cytokines …

    Evidence supporting the role of vitamin D in reducing risk of COVID-19 includes that the outbreak occurred in winter, a time when 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D) concentrations are lowest; that the number of cases in the Southern Hemisphere near the end of summer are low …

    Vitamin D deficiency has been found to contribute to acute respiratory distress syndrome; and … case-fatality rates increase with age and with chronic disease comorbidity, both of which are associated with lower 25(OH)D concentration.

    To reduce the risk of infection, it is recommended that people at risk of influenza and/or COVID-19 consider taking 10,000 IU/d of vitamin D3 for a few weeks to rapidly raise 25(OH)D concentrations, followed by 5000 IU/d. The goal should be to raise 25(OH)D concentrations above 40–60 ng/mL (100–150 nmol/L). For treatment of people who become infected with COVID-19, higher vitamin D3 doses might be useful."

    UK Recommends Supplementation
    Public Health England is recommending their citizens take a vitamin D supplement while they are spending more time indoors.22 The National Health Service23 routinely recommends their citizens take a supplement during the fall and winter months. They also recommend a supplement all year round for those who aren't outdoors, are in a care home, usually cover all their skin or have dark skin.

    The chief nutritionist at Public Health England is concerned that Britons may not be getting enough vitamin D from sunlight as they spend more time indoors. They counsel their citizens that while an adequate amount of vitamin D cannot stop an infection, it does have benefits, including improved outcomes in those who are deficient.24

    Yet, despite radical changes in the way people are living during the pandemic, the guidelines in the U.S. have not changed. The National Institutes of Health recommends that most people get their nutrients from food and beverages, including fortified food products. However, dietary intake is not sufficient to maintain healthy levels:25

    "Dietary intake of vitamin D from natural foods traditionally plays only a minor role with few available natural sources: animal sources such as fatty fish, cod liver oil, or egg yolks contain vitamin D3, and fungal sources such as mushrooms and yeast exposed to sunlight or UV radiation contain vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol)."

    The U.S. health agencies appear to have little interest in helping the public support their immune system through appropriate nutrition but would rather rely on drugs and vaccines.

    Some Public Health Officials Recognize Value of Vitamin D
    Although the official recommendation from government agencies is to wait for drugs and a vaccine, some are speaking out. Former CDC director Dr. Tom Frieden wrote an opinion piece for Fox News in which he suggests vitamin D may reduce COVID-19 mortality rates, especially in those who are deficient.26

    He goes on to say supplementation has reduced the "risk of respiratory infections, regulates cytokine production and can limit the risk of other viruses such as influenza." Much of the damage from COVID-19 occurs with a "cytokine storm," during which the body's inflammatory system goes into high gear, damaging organs and increasing mortality rates.

    The evidence of seasonality of some viral infections may be related to vitamin D production that declines during the winter months. Seasonal changes in infection rates are more evident in northern climates, and little or none in areas that are warm all year. He concluded:27

    "We can do lots of things to improve our resistance to infection. These include getting regular physical activity, getting enough sleep, stopping smoking and other tobacco use, and, for people living with diabetes, getting it under control. Taking a multivitamin that includes Vitamin D, or a Vitamin D supplement, probably can't hurt, and it might help.

    As we continue to work to mitigate the impact of COVID-19, anything we can do to strengthen our resistance is a step in the right direction."

    Dr. John C. Umhau is a public health specialist at the National Institutes of Health. In an article in MedPageToday he referenced his review in which he argued there were groups who were more likely to have vitamin D deficiency, including those who are obese, the elderly and those with dark skin. Yet vitamin D is one of the:28

    "most studied and most important host factor impacting survival from COVID-19 ... A government-sponsored research strategy to address this issue has not been developed, as officials explained that there was no mandate to explore an alternative to the existing vaccination program.

    However, other researchers picked up the ball and provided convincing evidence that vitamin D could reduce the incidence of acute respiratory infection."

    In further evidence published in Nutrients,29 scientists reviewed how vitamin D can reduce the risk of infection by lowering the rate at which the virus replicates and reduce the pro-inflammatory cytokines that damage the lungs, leading to pneumonia. Vitamin D also helps increase concentrations of anti-inflammatory cytokines that may help protect the lungs. The researchers recommended those at risk take:

    "10,000 IU/d of vitamin D3 for a few weeks to rapidly raise 25(OH)D concentrations, followed by 5000 IU/d. The goal should be to raise 25(OH)D concentrations above 40–60 ng/mL (100–150 nmol/L)."

    Individuals Dosages Vary Widely — Test To Be Sure
    Although the researchers recommended a specific amount of vitamin D3 to take, it's impossible to predict how much supplementation you personally may need unless your blood level is measured. Typically, ranges are from 2,000 to 10,000 units (IUs) per day, but there are many variables that contribute to this dose — that is why testing is so important.

    By testing at home you can stay away from hospitals unless you're having symptoms of a worsening respiratory infection, such as difficulty breathing. Ideally, you'd like your level to be 60 ng/mL.

    GrassrootsHealth makes testing easy by offering an inexpensive vitamin D testing kit as part of its consumer-sponsored research. All revenues from these kits go directly to GrassrootsHealth. I make no profit from these kits and only provide them as a service of convenience to my readers.

    Interesting Note on Fauci and Vitamin D
    As reviewed in an earlier article, long before SARS-CoV-2 became part of everyday life, Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), believed vitamin C and D were important strategies for enhancing your body's immune system. Just four years ago, he was interviewed by a reporter from Washingtonian on how to avoid getting sick.

    He explained the importance of washing your hands, clipping your nails and getting enough sleep. A fourth strategy he discussed was using vitamin C and D supplements:30

    "It can enhance your body's defense against microbes. I take 1,000 milligrams a day. Many people also do not get enough vitamin D, which affects a lot of body functions, so that would be helpful, too."

    In the current pandemic, the U.S. has placed inexpensive, patent-free nutritional supplements in second place to drugs and vaccines, which come with a high price tag in addition to unwelcome side effects.

    In a more recent interview with RealClearPolitics, Fauci appeared to hedge his opinion. He stressed the viability of vitamin C as an antioxidant that's "essentially totally harmless unless you take in a ridiculous amount."

    But when asked whether vitamin D might mitigate some respiratory infections, he said: there's "no definitive proof." He did point out, though, that you're not likely to get hurt by it.31 Still, his answers suggest an unwillingness to admit vitamin D plays a proven and important role in infectious disease.

    Might Fauci's backpedaling on vitamins C and D have anything to do with the fact that he serves on the Leadership Council for the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation's Global Vaccine Action Plan? He describes his litmus test for safety and effectiveness as being tied to randomized control trials:32

    "That's why you keep hearing me over and over again saying the best optimal way is to do a randomized control trial to determine as quickly as possible whether something works, and if it does, get it out there. If it doesn't, get it off the table."

    In what appears contradictory to this statement, Fauci said a vaccine may be released in the next 12 to 18 months.33 However, the standard steps to develop a relatively "safe" vaccine averages five years. It begins with two to four years of laboratory research, followed by one to two years of preclinical studies, and then Phase I, II and III trials.34 "

    World-wide nutritional immunity: Why everybody, everywhere is taking vitamin C

    Andrew W. Saul
    Orthomolecular.org
    Mon, 11 May 2020 00:01 UTC



    "Vitamin C protects against coronavirus." The Orthomolecular Medicine News Service first said so on January 26. The opening sentence of that release was and remains politically incorrect:
    "The coronavirus pandemic can be dramatically slowed, or stopped, with the immediate widespread use of high doses of vitamin C." The next two sentences are virtually never quoted. "Physicians have demonstrated the powerful antiviral action of vitamin C for decades. There has been a lack of media coverage of this effective and successful approach against viruses in general, and coronavirus in particular."
    Shortly after this release, CDC and WHO put up statements at their respective websites declaring that vitamin C was useless against COVID-19. Without even checking sources, USA Today and other newspapers declared it "fake news" and "false information." YouTube deleted videos of licensed physicians supporting therapeutic or even preventive use of vitamin C. Facebook literally blocked and banned this quote from one physician with over 30 years' experience treating viral illnesses:
    "I have not seen any flu yet that was not cured or markedly ameliorated by massive doses of vitamin C."
    (Robert F. Cathcart, MD)
    But something else, something big, also happened. OMNS Chinese edition editor Richard Cheng, MD, PhD, was already in place in China. He was first to report in on several Chinese doctors' initial successes using intravenous vitamin C against COVID. This was followed by OMNS publishing quotes from seminars and interviews with these doctors. Videos of these physicians have been promptly and repeatedly removed by YouTube for "violating their community standards."

    In spite of this, with no help from the network news, or the NIH, or the CDC, and certainly not from WHO, the public nevertheless drew a vital conclusion: if high dose intravenous vitamin C is useful for treating COVID-19 in hospitalized, ICU patients, then moderate oral doses of vitamin C will likely be a good preventive. Almost immediately, vitamin C sold out worldwide. Shelves were empty. Even the largest retailers were backordered for weeks. Some still are.

    Practically the whole world is now taking vitamin C. I think this is the real reason why COVID-19 will not become COVID-20. Or 21.

    Andrew W. Saul founded the peer-reviewed Orthomolecular Medicine News Service in 2004 at the request of Abram Hoffer, MD, PhD, and Hugh D. Riordan, MD. Saul, Dr. Hoffer's coauthor for four books, has written, coauthored, or edited twenty-one more. He has no financial connection whatsoever with the supplement industry.

    Video: Dr. Judy Mikovits Exposes Dr. Fauci Contradicting Statements On Hydroxychloroquine





    By Joaquin Flores
    On May 13, 2020

    FRN Readers – We have a live, working version of the video here. YouTube has taken down this important video where Dr. Mikovits shows the discoherence of Dr. Fauci’s statements on hydroxychloroquine. It’s also (not) amazing that YouTube and Facebook are in general censoring posts that refer to the effectiveness of hydroxychloroquine. This is despite its wide use in many countries including Serbia (where FRN is based) , Italy, Russia, China, and beyond. In Serbia, a country of 8 million, only a few hundred deaths have been registered as Covid-19. We have found a DailyMotion version of the video. Download it before they too take it down.

    Triple-drug combo of anti-malaria pill hydroxychloroquine, azithromycin and ZINC improved coronavirus patients' chances of being discharged and cut death risk by almost 50%, study finds

    01:36 - News

    Combining the anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine with the dietary supplement zinc could create a more effective treatment for coronavirus patients, a new study suggests.

    Researchers found that taking the drugs together, along with the antibiotic azithromycin, increased patient's chances of being discharged and decreased their risk of dying.

    It did not, however, change the average time patients spent in hospital, how long they spent on a ventilator or the total amount of oxygen required.

    President Donald Trump has often touted the drug as a 'game-changer' during his press conferences and on Twitter, and the US Food and Drug Administration authorized emergency use of hydroxychloroquine.

    The team, from New York University Grossman School of Medicine, says the findings are encouraging but that more studies, including a randomized clinical trial, are needed.


    Researchers from NYU Grossman gave half of coronavirus patients a combination of hydroxychloroquine (pictured), azithromycin and zinc sulfate while the other half did not receive zinc

    'In the beginning of this outbreak, we didn't have much information on what worked and what didn't,' senior investigator Dr Joseph Rahimian, an infectious disease specialist at NYU Langone Health, told DailyMail.om.

    'There is some evidence that zinc works because it had antiviral properties...so we wanted to see if there was a difference in patients who got it.

    For the study, published on pre-print site medRxiv.org, the team looked at 932 COVID-19 patients hospitalized between March 2 and April 5.

    Roughly half were given a combination of zinc sulfate, hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin.

    The other half received just hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin.

    Results showed that patients receiving the triple-drug combination had a 1.5 times greater likelihood of recovering enough to be discharged.

    They were also 44 percent less likely to die, compared to those who were given the double-drug combination.

    Researchers say the addition of zinc sulfate decreased the need to be put on a ventilator, and the risk of being admitted to the ICU or being transferred to hospice.
    'I was hoping that we could see a benefit...but it'soften difficult to see a substantial difference in morality so it's exciting to see that result.''I was surprised by the results,' Rahimian said.
    However, both groups spent an average of six days in the hospital and about five days on a ventilator. They also both received about the same amount of oxygen.

    For future studies, the team wants to conduct a randomized placebo trial - considered the gold standard of research - to see if the findings can be replicated.

    'We want to see if hydroxychloroquine is the best [drug] to give with zinc or other if there is another one that makes it more useful,' Rahimian said.

    Hydroxychloroquine has been proposed as a treatment against the virus because it has antiviral properties that have been proven in lab settings, but not in people.

    It interferes with the virus' ability to enter the cells and also seems to block them from replicating once they are already inside.

    Zinc itself has antiviral properties and past research has suggested it may reduce the time people suffer from common colds.

    Rahimian believes that, when used to treat coronavirus patients, it is the zinc that does the heavy lifting and is the primary substance attacking the pathogen.

    Hydroxychloroquine, on the other hand, acts as an agent that transports the zinc into cells, increasing its efficacy, he suggested.
    'Zinc is an easily available, well-tolerated medicine to use with few side effects so if there is a possibility it might [be] a benefit, that is appealing,' Rahimian said.
    'I don't think it's the only thing patients need to get better certainly, but adding zinc might be helpful to patients recovering.'
    In the US, there are more than 1.4 million confirmed cases of the virus and more than 83,000 deaths.

    Vitamin D determines severity in COVID-19: Researchers urge government to change advice

    Sci Tech Daily
    Wed, 13 May 2020 00:01 UTC


    Trinity College Dublin researchers point to changes in government advice in Wales, England and Scotland.

    Researchers from Trinity College Dublin are calling on the government in Ireland to change recommendations for vitamin D supplements.

    A new publication from Dr. Eamon Laird and Professor Rose Anne Kenny, School of Medicine, and the Irish Longitudinal Study on Ageing (TILDA), in collaboration with Professor Jon Rhodes at University of Liverpool, highlights the association between vitamin D levels and mortality from COVID-19.

    The authors of the article, just published in the Irish Medical Journal, analyzed all European adult population studies, completed since 1999, which measured vitamin D and compared vitamin D and death rates from COVID-19.

    Vitamin D is produced in the skin from UVB sunlight exposure and is transported to the liver and then the kidney where it is changed into an active hormone that increases calcium transport from food in the gut and ensures calcium is adequate to keep the skeleton strong and free of osteoporosis.

    But vitamin D can also support the immune system through a number of immune pathways involved in fighting SARS-CoV-2. Many recent studies confirm the pivotal role of vitamin D in viral infections.

    This study shows that, counter intuitively, countries at lower latitude and typically sunny countries, such as Spain and Northern Italy, had low concentrations of vitamin D and high rates of vitamin D deficiency. These countries also experienced the highest infection and death rates in Europe.

    The northern latitude countries of Norway, Finland, and Sweden, have higher vitamin D levels despite less UVB sunlight exposure, because supplementation and fortification of foods is more common. These Nordic countries have lower COVID-19 infection and death rates. The correlation between low vitamin D levels and death from COVID-19 is statistically significant.

    The authors propose that, whereas optimizing vitamin D levels will certainly benefit bone and muscle health, the data suggests that it is also likely to reduce serious COVID-19 complications. This may be because vitamin D is important in regulation and suppression of the inflammatory cytokine response, which causes the severe consequences of COVID-19 and 'acute respiratory distress syndrome' associated with ventilation and death.

    Professor Rose Anne Kenny said:
    "In England, Scotland and Wales, public health bodies have revised recommendations since the COVID-19 outbreak. Recommendations now state that all adults should take at least 400 IU vitamin D daily. Whereas there are currently no results from randomized controlled trials to conclusively prove that vitamin D beneficially affects COVID-19 outcomes, there is strong circumstantial evidence of associations between vitamin D and the severity of COVID-19 responses, including death."
    "This study further confirms this association. We call on the Irish government to update guidelines as a matter of urgency and encourage all adults to take supplements during the COVID-19 crisis. Deficiency is frequent in Ireland. Deficiency is most prevalent with age, obesity, in men, in ethnic minorities, in people with diabetes, hypertension and in nursing homes."
    Dr. Eamon Laird added:
    "Here we see observational evidence of a link of vitamin D with mortality. Optimizing vitamin D intake to public health guidelines will certainly have benefits for overall health and support immune function. Research like this is still exploratory and we need further trials to have concrete evidence on the level of vitamin D that is needed for optimal immune function. However, studies like this also remind us how low our vitamin D status is in the population (even in sunny countries) and adds further weight to some sort of mandatory vitamin D fortification policy. If the Nordic countries are allowed to do this, there is no reason Ireland, the UK or rest of Europe can't either."

    Supplements/Covid stacks. This is what me and my family have been on since the end of February. The dosages are adjusted for my 8 year old who has a slightly different regime (he takes a kid dosage of A, D's and K's as well as kid EpiCor and so on).


    Vitamin A, D, K's (we take this combo, it contains 5000mg of D).

    Zinc, our dosage is 50 mg and is balanced with copper. My 8 year old uses ionic zinc and I put it in his food.

    Quercetin, 500mg twice a day divided so it totals 1000 mgs a day

    Glutathione, we use Glutathione Gold. CAPSULE Contains 200mg of S-Acetyl-Glutathione

    Selenium 200mcg daily

    NAC 1000mg

    Vitamin C, 1 gram every few hours so it varies, some days I take 5000mg's, sometimes more. Liposomal and AA.

    Elderberry syrup, homemade, 1 tablespoon

    Iodine, we use both Lugol's and nascent, dose varies

    EpiCor, an immune supplement, 1 pill per day.

    Chaga grown on birch, 1 dropper daily

    Edited to add I left out this we all take as well. E Annatto DeltaGold Tocotrienols 125mg Vitamin E


    Other supplements we have on standby for issues, Clear Lungs, Oreganol, Plum Dragon Herbs Wen Bing which I will put a link to as well as EpiCor

    Sorrento Therapeutics claim to have found an antibody that binds to the SARS CoV-2 spike protein and eliminates it from the body within 4 days. Will be interesting to see if this is a mover or not.

    Quote Sorrento Therapeutics

    STI-1499, A Potent Anti-SARS-CoV-2 Antibody, Demonstrates Ability To Completely Inhibit In Vitro Virus Infection In Preclinical Studies

    May 15, 2020

    STI-1499 Antibody has demonstrated in preclinical experiments (full results will be submitted to a peer-reviewed publication shortly):

    - 100% inhibition of SARS-CoV-2 virus infection of healthy cells after four days incubation

    - Specific binding to S1 subunit of the SARS-CoV-2 Spike protein and complete blockade of its interaction with ACE2 receptor

    SAN DIEGO, May 15, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Sorrento Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: SRNE, "Sorrento") announced today that its anti-SARS-CoV-2 antibody, STI-1499, demonstrated 100% inhibition of SARS-CoV-2 virus infection in an in vitro virus infection experiment at a very low antibody concentration.

    As recently announced, Sorrento aims to generate an antibody cocktail product that would act as a "protective shield" against SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus infection and remain effective even if virus mutations render a single antibody therapy less effective over time.

    Sorrento has been diligently screening billions of antibodies in its proprietary G-MAB TMfully human antibody library and has so far identified hundreds of antibody candidates that bind the S1 subunit of the SARS-CoV-2 Spike protein. Approximately one dozen of these antibodies have demonstrated the ability to block the S1 protein's interaction with human angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2), the receptor used for viral entrance into human cells. These blocking antibodies were further tested for their ability to inhibit SARS-CoV-2 virus infection in an in vitro SARS-CoV-2 virus infection model pursuant to a preclinical testing agreement for COVID-19 therapeutic candidates that was previously announced on March 31, 2020 (Sorrento Therapeutics).

    Among the antibodies showing neutralizing activity, one antibody stood out for its ability to completely block SARS-CoV-2 infection of healthy cells in the experiments. STI-1499 completely neutralized the virus infectivity at a very low antibody dose, making it a prime candidate for further testing and development. Initial biochemical and biophysical analyses also indicate STI-1499 is a potentially strong antibody drug candidate.

    Sorrento has determined STI-1499 will likely be the first antibody in the antibody cocktail (COVI-SHIELD TM) it is developing, as recently announced. STI-1499 is also expected to be developed as a stand-alone therapy, (COVI-GUARD TM) because of the high potency it has exhibited in experiments to date. Sorrento plans to request priority evaluation and accelerated review from regulators to determine the best pathway to make any potential treatment available as soon as possible. Sorrento's existing state-of-the-art cGMP antibody manufacturing facility in San Diego is expected to be able to produce up to two hundred thousand doses per month and the Company intends to produce a million doses at risk while seeking FDA approval for any STI-1499 product candidate. The Company is seeking potential government support and pharmaceutical partners to further scale up STI-1499 manufacturing capacity with a goal of potentially providing tens of millions of doses in a short period of time to meet the vast projected demand.

    "Our STI-1499 antibody shows exceptional therapeutic potential and could potentially save lives following receipt of necessary regulatory approvals. We at Sorrento are working day and night to complete the steps necessary to get this product candidate approved and available to the waiting public," stated Dr. Henry Ji, Chairman and CEO of Sorrento.

    STUDY: 973 of 1061 Cured in Days – Treatment of COVID-19 patients with Hydroxychloroquine and Azithromycin



    By Guest Author
    Last updated May 16, 2020


    A total of 1061 patients were included in this analysis (46.4% male, mean age 43.6 years – range 14–95 years). Good clinical outcome and virological cure were obtained in 973 patients within 10 days (91.7%)

    Abstract

    Background

    In France, the combination hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) and azithromycin (AZ) is used in the treatment of COVID-19.

    Methods

    We retrospectively report on 1061 SARS-CoV-2 positive tested patients treated for at least three days with the following regimen: HCQ (200 mg three times daily for ten days) + AZ (500 mg on day 1 followed by 250 mg daily for the next four days). Outcomes were death, clinical worsening (transfer to ICU, and >10 day hospitalization) and viral shedding persistence (>10 days).

    Results

    A total of 1061 patients were included in this analysis (46.4% male, mean age 43.6 years – range 14–95 years). Good clinical outcome and virological cure were obtained in 973 patients within 10 days (91.7%). Prolonged viral carriage was observed in 47 patients (4.4%) and was associated to a higher viral load at diagnosis (p < .001) but viral culture was negative at day 10. All but one, were PCR-cleared at day 15. A poor clinical outcome (PClinO) was observed for 46 patients (4.3%) and 8 died (0.75%) (74–95 years old). All deaths resulted from respiratory failure and not from cardiac toxicity. Five patients are still hospitalized (98.7% of patients cured so far). PClinO was associated with older age (OR 1.11), severity of illness at admission (OR 10.05) and low HCQ serum concentration. PClinO was independently associated with the use of selective beta-blocking agents and angiotensin II receptor blockers (p < .05). A total of 2.3% of patients reported mild adverse events (gastrointestinal or skin symptoms, headache, insomnia and transient blurred vision).

    Conclusion
    Administration of the HCQ+AZ combination before COVID-19 complications occur is safe and associated with a very low fatality rate in patients.

    In an exclusive interview with FRANCE 24 and RFI, Madagascar's President Andry Rajoelina defended his promotion of a controversial homegrown remedy for Covid-19 despite an absence of clinical trials. "It works really well," he said of the herbal drink Covid-Organics. Rajoelina claimed that if a European country had discovered the remedy, people would not be so sceptical.

    ADVERTISING
    The World Health Organization (WHO) has repeatedly warned that the Covid-Organics drink, which Madagascar's Rajoelina has touted as a remedy against the deadly coronavirus, has not been clinically tested.

    "What if this remedy had been discovered by a European country, instead of Madagascar? Would people doubt it so much? I don't think so," the president told FRANCE 24's Marc Perelman and RFI's Christophe Boisbouvier.

    The drink is derived from artemisia – a plant with proven anti-malarial properties – and other indigenous herbs.

    "What is the problem with Covid-Organics, really? Could it be that this product comes from Africa? Could it be that it's not OK for a country like Madagascar, which is the 63rd poorest country in the world... to have come up with (this formula) that can help save the world?" asked Rajoelina, who claims the infusion cures patients within ten days.

    >> Covid-19 in Madagascar: The president’s controversial ‘miracle cure’

    Equatorial Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Niger and Tanzania have already taken delivery of consignments of Covid-Organics, which was launched last month.

    "No one will stop us from moving forward – not a country, not an organisation," Rajoelina said in response to the WHO's concerns.

    He said the proof of the tonic's efficacy was in the "healing" of "our patients", calling it a "preventive and curative remedy".

    Rajoelina said Madagascar has reported 171 coronavirus infections and 105 recoveries to date, with no deaths.

    "The patients who have healed have taken no other product than Covid-Organics," the president added.

    Reminding viewers that Madagascar has a long history of traditional medicine, Rajoelina pointed out that many pharmaceutical drugs authorised in the West have turned out to be harmful, such as the Mediator weight loss drug in France.

    Quote
    The illness went on and on. The symptoms changed, it was like an advent
    calendar, every day there was a surprise, something new. A muggy head; acutely
    painful calf; upset stomach; tinnitus; pins and needles; aching all over;
    breathlessness; dizziness; arthritis in my hands; weird sensation in the skin with
    synthetic materials. Gentle exercise or walking made me worse – I would feel
    absolutely dreadful the next day.

    This article is going to go into quite a bit more depth than the one I posted the first of March,
    2020 – nevertheless, it will not be nearly so complete as my work on the Lyme-group of
    organisms. And while I will list a number of journal papers and articles in the reference section,
    it will be far less comprehensive than those included in my medical herbals. Still, this should
    give a decent overview with better complexity about what is now known and how treatment can
    best be approached with herbal medicines.
    It is 80 pages long, so not going to copy it here. I'm not feeling that well myself, so I haven't finished it and can't comment on it at the moment, but thought others might like to read it.
