    Gee "Dr. " Richard, I'd love to. But with people writing like you do, coronavirus may catch up with me first.

    It's an anecdote. Story telling. It proves nothing. It could (and probably is) observation and reasoning errors. Ah, some people never learn. Correcting them is wasted time.

    I completely agree with you for once. It even hits the issue that HCQ can be especially harmful to very sick patients because the virus damages their heart and makes it more vulnerable to side effects. This is a subtle but…

    Is human biology is different in central London than Tokyo, Beijing, Greece or New Zealand? If it is the same, the number cannot be 20x.

    It is conceivable that in some places in the U.S., such as Georgia, there are 10 times more…

    OK. So if true, 4X deadlier than the seasonal flu and probably 10X as infective. So 40X worse. Great news THAT is. And the proof is always in the pudding as my venerated great-aunt used to repeat constantly. So let's look at the…

    Actually, from reporter's anecdotes, you won't know sh*t.

    That report is useless. Scientific studies, not reporter's hearsay stories, is the only way we will know if this or any drug is safe and effective.

    Children infected with Sars-CoV-2 which causes COVID-19, have demonstrable virus in their pharynx and also in their feces. There is no theoretical reason they could not infect adults who come in contact with their stool (as on diapers or even invisible…

    And masks do work, and this is about surgical masks, not the N95 variety which is even better.

    Hmmm... Can't recall where but I hear or read only 60% for neutralizing antibodies at the lower two doses. And they stopped the higher dose trial because of a slew of side effects. I would have to look up again the diff…

    Ha. I never got the hydroxychloroquine from India. Early in March, I did get chloroquine. I used three different India sources about $600 went that way because I wanted enough to treat 10-20 people and I was unsure if any…

    That is complete and utter bullshit. Ignorant religious people who know nothing about atheism or evolution sometimes say that sort of thing. It shows they have read nothing and know nothing. You should not discuss subjects you know…

    It/s one thing for a well intentioned physician to prescribe medication such as HCQ and AZI off label, having given the patient informed consent and done the correct laboratory tests, EKG's and kept documentation. It is quite another thing to be a crook…
