    Wow - conspiracy theorists of the world unite! The Gates vaccine-pushers are out to get you! And I, .... , well I am a paid stooge of my communist liberal elite friends who want the pandemic for their own evil ends, and am waging infowars on this thread…

    Well, it is silly to say that HCQ is hindered by liberals. In Sweden it is not politisized and still HCQ is not used much. Experts simply do not see a proven benefit and recognizes drawbacks with it. So we have to wait for studies like COPCOV in order…

    The current view from India is responding to the developing (negative) evidence from RCTs:

    RB - do you understand the reason for this? Look at Raoul's initial paper. His protocol delivered relatively low initial amounts of HCQ, some time after infection. If, as claimed here by HCQ advocates (and I agree) HCQ could only be active against viral…

    They are agreeing with everyone here who says that if HCQ is going to work it needs to be administered as early as possible. But the time between patients being infected and in hospital cleared for HCQ is quite long anyway.

    They discuss this in the paper: https://www.medrxiv.org/conten….20151852v1.full.pdf+html line 261 onwards.
    They say that due to the long half-life, rheumatism patients build up similar blood concentrations as were tested in the RECOVERY trial. …

    Lockdown works




    The study, which is yet to be reviewed by the scientific community, provides a snapshot survey of who was infected between 1 May and 1 June and confirms what the government said it understood about

    I am (slightly) shocked by the level of bias shown here. I'm all for finding cheap easy therapies for COVID. I think it is rather shocking that (for example) Ivermectin, and many other possibles, seem not to have been properly…

    HCQ for (post-exposure) prophylaxis does not work.

    https://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMoa2016638

    Here is RCT evidence that HCQ - given fast and at high initial dose so that it is active sooner - does not significantly alter the rates at which…

    Shane, it is possible that HCQ is a helpful prophylactic at this level.

    But think - what data do you need to know this is true? You need to give it - as prophylactic - to a large number of people who do not have COVID. You then need…

    There are some things we do (like getting vaccinated and wearing masks) that are good for us and everyone else if only most people do them.

    This is a classic case where altrusim benefits society - because if everyone is altruistic…

    The mind can create emotions, which in turn drive hormonal systems in the body - e.g. adrenalin etc. As Stefan said above stress is a real physiological thing with effects (too much is a problem) and it is determined by how the…

    Yes, absolutely, I know. That is why, because more sophisticated heterogeneous models can show herd immunity at significantly lower levels - because the higher contact people are more likely to be infected, and then are immune -…

    THHuxleynew why are you still supporting [Gilead] an absolute ruthless company???

    It may surprise you but I've got no opinion about Gilead, nor about whether Remdesivir is a useful drug for COVID-19. Too little evidence. That is not support.

    Your sentiment on facts is clear; you post here unverifiable statements as facts, you use emotive words and innuendo in pace of argument.

    Your defence is that no-one should care because anyone who spends hours researching your statements…

    That argument is an obvious possibility. It does not show Ferguson wrong however, because his point is that the data from before and after lockdown does not show any of the herd immunity effects you would expect in that case, for…
