A surprising new study found that the controversial antimalarial drug hydroxychloroquine helped Covid-19 patients better survive in the hospital.

I love how a drug that’s been around for sixty years is controversial. It’s cheap as chips too. Bill Gates’ friend Dr Fauci claimed that it is not only ineffective but dangerous. Why would he do that?


  1. Bill is a true example of American leadership and exceptionalism. No wonder the conspiracy-tards hate him. He is everything they can never be.

  2. very true Mourne, the Right hates philanthropists and scientists

  3. Given that Trump has spent about 500 days playing Golf since becoming President and has no capacity for reading detailed policy or intelligence reports, if we are going to give him any sort of medical title it would be more apt to call him Dr Doolittle 🙂

  4. OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — President Donald Trump’s campaign rally in Tulsa in late June that drew thousands of participants and large protests “likely contributed” to a dramatic surge in new coronavirus cases, Tulsa City-County Health Department Director Dr. Bruce Dart said Wednesday.

    Tulsa County reported 261 confirmed new cases on Monday, a one-day record high, and another 206 cases on Tuesday. By comparison, during the week before the June 20 Trump rally, there were 76 cases on Monday and 96 on Tuesday.

    Although the health department’s policy is to not publicly identify individual settings where people may have contracted the virus, Dart said those large gatherings “more than likely” contributed to the spike.

    “In the past few days, we’ve seen almost 500 new cases, and we had several large events just over two weeks ago, so I guess we just connect the dots,” Dart said.

  6. I love how a drug that’s been around for sixty years is controversial. It’s cheap as chips too. Bill Gates’ friend Dr Fauci claimed that it is not only ineffective but dangerous. Why would he do that?

    Well, hydroxychloroquine is unpatentable and won’t get big-Pharma any money whereas Remdesivir is patented and would get loads of money for Gates, Fauci et al:

    A report by the New England Journal of Medicine declares that Remdesivir is effective:



    Remdesivir was superior to placebo in shortening the time to recovery in adults hospitalized with Covid-19 and evidence of lower respiratory tract infection.

    but it is noteworthy that the NEJM’s former chief-editor declared much of NEJM’s output to be compromised by results dictated by funding i.e. corruption

    I see further that the NEJM is pushing for the Covid-19 vaccine to be mandatory – as Bill et al have been demanding……


    As Covid-19 continues to exact a heavy toll (A LIE -A@A interjection), development of a vaccine appears the most promising means of restoring normalcy to civil life. Perhaps no scientific breakthrough is more eagerly anticipated. But bringing a vaccine to market is only half the challenge; also critical is ensuring a high enough vaccination rate to achieve herd immunity. Concerningly, a recent poll found that only 49% of Americans planned to get vaccinated against SARS-CoV-2.1

    One option for increasing vaccine uptake is to require it. Mandatory vaccination has proven effective in ensuring high childhood immunization rates in many high-income countries. However, except for influenza vaccination of health care workers, mandates have not been widely used for adults.

    OK – that’s the background being set by the NEJM on behalf of ……? Take the vaccine and get your life back.

  7. The ball is rolling and Gates (I’ll call him ‘Gates’ because ‘Bill’ is aplicable to a former POTUS who is possibly even more demonic than Gates. When one sees Gates, it gets difficult to argue against David Icke’s theory of these demons being ‘reptiles’) is pushing the vaccine versus travel agenda:


    According to Bill Gates,

    “Eventually what we’ll have to have is certificates of who’s a recovered person, who’s a vaccinated person […] Because you don’t want people moving around the world where you’ll have some countries that won’t have it under control, sadly. You don’t want to completely block off the ability for people to go there and come back and move around. So eventually there will be this digital immunity proof that will help facilitate the global reopening up.”

    He expressed his predictions in an interview (linked above) that took place a couple of months ago. In the interview he also suggested that people should have some sort of digital identification that shows their vaccination status, and that people without this type of “proof” wouldn’t be able to travel.

    Whether these intentions are for the coronavirus vaccine or perhaps some other medication down the road, this pandemic is a great example of how close we can come and are coming to mandating ‘medicine.’

    Take your wonderful new vaccine. If it’s as good as Gates’s software, what can go wrong?

    Regardless of what government and media say, it’s not about “pro-vax” or “anti-vax,” it’s simply about looking at the science and acknowledging the fact that vaccines are not a one size fits all product.

    For example, according to a MedAlerts search of the FDA Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) database, as of 2/5/19, the cumulative raw count of adverse events from measles, mumps, and rubella vaccines alone was: 93,929 adverse events, 1,810 disabilities, 6,902 hospitalizations, and 463 deaths. The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act has paid out approximately $4 billion to compensate families of vaccine-injured children. As astronomical as the monetary awards are, they’re even more alarming considering HHS claims that only an estimated 1% of vaccine injuries are even reported to the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS).

    I assume that as a child you were vaccinated against polio and TB and measles.

    Would you prefer not to have been vaccinated and if you have children / grandchildren would you prefer them not to be vaccinated? Because you seem to think that vaccination is an evil thing.

    Just for the record.

  9. I love the way that Pete Moore cherry-picked the one poor-quality study apparently showing efficacy, while ignoring the many more that show the exact opposite. And this, ladies and gents, is why people like Fauci are better equipped to say what works than your average blogger.

    There is however an important point here that has been missed.

    The anti-big-Pharma argument that hydroxychloroquine is being ignored because nobody stands to make any money out of it is utter garbage, and you know why?

    The drug that doctors have found to be the real lifesaver against Covid-19 is not remdesivir, it is not hydroxychloroquine, it is a humble corticosteroid called dexamethasone. It appears only to be effective in the very sickest patients, those requiring ventilation, but its use may have been a significant factor in the much improved mortality rates over the last three months.

    And guess what – dex is cheap as chips. It has been out of patent for decades, it’s commonly found in every hospital pharmacy, and every major institution with intubated Covid-19 patients was able to start using it as soon as trials showed that it worked. No big bucks for Big Pharma, just a good, cheap medicine that shoots down the barmy conspiracy theories by simply existing.

    The other interesting question: why are the hydroxychloroquine fans so keen to push this one drug? Millions of people with no expertise or previous interest in pharmacology became obsessed with it. Dozens of pharmaceutical agents were proposed as possible therapies against Covid. So why is it hydroxychloroquine that gets Pete Moore out of bed to write a post? Answer: this is the one that Trump chose to tweet about.* And if you trust the pharmacological knowhow of such a manifestly ignorant and ill-educated man over that of the medical professionals advising him, you might as well be part of a cult.

    * based on one extremely poor quality study from France, self-published by a microbiologist who doesn’t believe in trial methodology – but that’s another story.

  10. good research masterson
