‘Beginning Of The End’: Renowned Doctor Sees 100% Success With Virus Drug

9

Calling it an “absolute game changer,” renowned infectious disease specialist Dr. Stephen Smith said Wednesday he has seen 100% success in his treatment of 72 seriously ill COVID-19 patients with the drugs touted by the White House, hydroxchloroquine and azithromycin.

“I think this is the beginning of the end of the pandemic,” he said in an interview with Fox News host Laura Ingraham. “I’m very serious.”

Smith said none of the patients he has treated with those drugs for five days or more have had to be intubated, meaning put on a ventilator to keep them breathing.

The FDA authorized “emergency use” of hydroxychloroquine to treat COVID-19 patients in hospitals and in clinical trials. The drug has successfully treated malaria and autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and lupus for decades.

The doctor said he is having statisticians examine the likelihood of his result, but a preliminary analysis by his sons concluded the chances are “point zero, zero, zero something.”

“It’s ridiculously low, no matter how you look at it,” said Smith, who has been treating COVID-19 patients at his Smith Center for Infectious Diseases and Urban Health in East Orange, New Jersey.

“You worry about selection bias in this situation, but I cannot think of a reason why, if all else is equal, why people that have received five days or more – or even four days or more – of this hydroxychlorquine-azithro regimin wouldn’t get intubated,” he said.

“It’s a game-changer. An absolute game-changer,” Smith told Ingraham.

He believes his data will support other studies, such as one published earlier this month by French researchers finding remarkable success with hydroxychloroquine and antibiotics.

“Now you actually have an intra-cohort comparison saying that this regimen works,” he said.

See the interview:

As WND reported March 25 a physician who works in New York City hospitals has found nearly 100% success treating COVID-19 patients with a combination of hydroxychloroquine, azithromycin and zinc sulfate.

One week ago, the governments of Italy and France approved the use of hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin to treat COVID-19 in response to a study by Dr. Didier Raoult, a professor of infectious diseases in Marseille.

The agency said both drugs “have shown activity in laboratory studies against coronaviruses, including SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19).”

“Anecdotal reports suggest that these drugs may offer some benefit in the treatment of hospitalized COVID-19 patients,” the HHS statement said. “Clinical trials are needed to provide scientific evidence that these treatments are effective.”

Crediting President Trump for his “bold leadership,” Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar said the federal government will “continue working around the clock to get American patients access to therapeutics that may help them battle COVID-19, while building the evidence to evaluate which options are effective.”

Dr. Luciana Borio, who served as FDA acting chief scientist under President Obama, criticized the agency’s emergency-use order.

On Twitter, she insisted there’s a “total lack of scientific evidence that chloroquine/hydroxychloroquine are beneficial in the treatment of COVID-19.”

  1. the DemocRATS and NoBama’s administration doesn’t care about using new drugs to save lives.

    President Trump & all doctors are SAVING LIVES by using this new combination of drugs.

  2. Is Covid-19 a Democrat or a Republican? Partisanship while people are sick and dying, yes they’re not falling dead in the streets and they aren’t being piled up outside, yet there are sick and dying. So let’s let political hubris get in the forefront of health care. Oh, health care doesn’t exist in the U.S. for over 50 years, it’s disease management or chronic care – so if this isn’t a time for disease management or chronic care when will be. It’s similar to the pagan priests of old, my getchke is better than your getchke and if you follow my getchke all will be well.

  3. And yet there are doctors and hospitals that still REFUSE to give this.
    It’s all politics, plain and simple.
    THEY ARE STUBBORN AND IT WILL COST LIVES R”L
    this is simply criminal

  4. Let’s start with the basics. Across multiple “modern” hi-tech countries this drug (or combination there-of) have been used against the virus, and to date there are no reports of bad side-effects. Further, specialists have used this (in multiple countries) and found their own success rate convincing.

    My questions to this Dr. Luciana Borio are as follows. What treatment (that has not yet been used) do YOU propose, NOW, when it is most urgently needed? Are you actually calling for a complete stop to this treatment (if and until clinical trials)?

  5. As alluded to in paragraph eleven, it is important to give the hydroxychloroquine along with a certain amount of the mineral “Zinc.” For what the hydroxychloroquine does is that it moves Zinc into the patient’s cells where the Zinc then stops the growth of virus. Unfortunately, most people today are badly lacking in Zinc and thus countless thousands — Lo Alaynu — have been so severely injured and even killed by this virus-hyper-monster, Hashem Yinakem Damam. So, there is an enormous necessity for people to start taking a Zinc supplement, and those who have been actually hit with the Machla desperately need a good infusion of it.

    Besides Zinc, the “famous” vitamins: “A,” “C,” and “D” are well known for strengthening immunity and certainly should be taken too. In many cases, in addition to oral dosage, Vitamin C is also given in Intravenous Injections.

    As each person’s physiology is unique, the supplement amounts that are appropriate for each person are also unique and need to be determined by a specialized physician who is properly trained in the field of Natural Nutritional Medicine.

    (See the video titled: “How to end the pandemic” at the Pandemic (dot) news website and the article titled: “Dr Brownstein: We are Not Worried About COVID-19” at the VaccineImpact (dot) com website.)

  6. There are 2 types of evidence a medication works. One is evidence where it was used on many patients with great results. This is not conclusive but after some time it should be accepted. Second, clinical double blind controlled study. This one does many features that ensure to a high extent the likelihood of a true positive.

    During normal times where there is no apparent advantage to a new medication, such as there are other clinically approved options, even with some known manageable side effects, the only option should be clinical double blind studies.

    During pandemics where people are dying and you have no known remedy, the option to wait has known consequences such as death on a massive scale, we MUST rely on trial and error while reporting the results via questionnaire or the like to at the same time accomplish a low level statistics.

    The current situation is such that this is a pandemic, this does qualify for a plague, for which we should rely on the quickest safest option available. This would be test on many patients and if rate is promising USE IT! Approve it! while at the same time, keep a close eye on the results, as well as simultaneously running studies.

    The reason to approve clinical trial is especially justified where the side effects of this medication are known and this medication is well tolerated.
