You guys can make some quick cash selling these drugs online and shipping to the US.

 

Do you know a pharmacy that has them? I checked around and it isn't available. Azithromycin, yes. But not hydroxychloroquine.

Volunteers, Yes, but take a look at their corporate roles below, lots of self interest.

It has come to light that trump, though investment funds, though small, has interests in the drugs he is promoting, as well as a number of his so called advisers. it's beyond believe trump has not put his financials interests in blind trusts.

Yesterday the French recommendation of the drug combo for Covid has now been retracted by the oversight organisation.

I am sure Big Pharma is working world wide to buy time for an "on-patent" - hence more profitable - solution.  Trump doesn't own enough of any of any of this to make a difference to his wealth.  Keep an eye on Kushner, though.

ANTIBODY COCKTAIL

A ‘bridge to a vaccine’: The race to roll out antibody-based Covid-19 drugs

April 8, 2020

The world is not likely to see a vaccine for SARS-CoV-2 until next year, and there’s still no drug engineered to fight the virus. Studies of the malaria drug hydroxychloroquine, which has been touted by President Trump, have not conclusively shown an effect against Covid-19. Plasma transfusions, which deliver antibodies from blood donated by recovered Covid-19 patients, are undergoing trials in a few hospitals, but remain in short supply.

In the meantime, a growing number of pharmaceutical companies are scrambling to roll out what will likely be the first generation of drugs specific to Covid-19.

Like plasma transfusions, these drugs are built on antibodies. But they’re delivered in a concentration that aims to be more effective, consistent, and able to be mass-produced. Such drugs are commonplace in treating cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, infectious diseases like Ebola, and other conditions, and represent a $50 billion annual market in the US that includes six of the country’s top 15 selling drugs.

About 2 weeks before Trump's comment, Thailand stopped the sale through pharmacies even with prescription, and hospitals began hoarding their supplies for inpatient use only. Thailand obviously recognized Chloroquine's potential value before Trump.

 

In fact, everyone knew, doctors everywhere knew, I and many knew, it has been known for more than a decade since SARS. Trump was the last to know.

 

Then why is the American MSM manufacturing such a blatantly false perspective? Chloroquine costs 5 cents per tablet. An entire long treatment is less than $1. The $4 trillion per year health industry is not happy. 

MSM manifacture what? They just relay the assessment of most experts. It may well be efficient but there is no conclusive study yet. There is a large scale trial going on in Europe so we can hope this matter will be soon clarified

They probably knew before Trump. However, I'm sure Trump knew about it well before he started suggesting it as a possible therapy. Many leftists think he just throws stuff out without thinking about as his common strategy. Trump has rope-a-doped them enough times to know that's not the case.

 

I am still bewildered that so many on the left appear to literally be hoping chloroquine doesn't work. It's the strangest thing. It's almost as though they prefer more people die than Trump be correct. Bizarro times we live in.

Yeah, Trump has a proven track of only making well informed and predictive statements, lol! Such as

February 20: "And again, when you have 15 people, and the 15 within a couple of days is going to be down to close to zero, that's a pretty good job we've done," 🤣

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/timeline-president-donald-trump-changing-statements-on-coronavirus/

 

There is no way Trump can be more informed than the most authoritative sources in the world. He's just making a bet. If it works he will try to get some advantage of it. If it doesn't work, people like you will explain us that he was just expressing his hope that it could work!

Yes of course, the president can be just as well-informed as the most authoritative sources in the world. That's not even debatable. The only question is, why are you so invested in it not working? That seems quite odd.

Oh please let's not kid around, the MSM relays the assessment of most LIBERAL "experts".
