Is the public being lied to concerning drugs that inhibit the coronavirus? Are thousands of patients needlesly dying because the foot-dragging FDA hesitates to approve promising coronavirus drugs1Lack of FDA approval does not prohibit off-label use of drugs for other threapeutic purposes, but would inhibit widespred use for corona virus on the spurious grounds that further “scientific” testing is needed? Are the mainstream media covering this up?
The truth is that numerous studies reveal that certain chloroquine based compounds, widely used as malarial prophylactics in humans and against some diseases of fish in aquaria, are indeed efficacious against coronavirus. Even as far back as 2005, a study by Dr. Martin J. Vincent et al.  in the Journal of Virology concluded that
“Chloroquine is a potent inhibitor of SARS coronavirus infection and spread.“
According to Dr. Philippe Gautret, co-author of a recent publication  of the International Journal of Antimicrobial Agents
“We therefore recommend that COVID-19 patients be treated with Hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin to cure their infection and to limit the transmission of the virus to other people in order to curb the spread of COVID-19 in the world.”
A recent study by Dr. M. Wang et al.  concluded that
“Our findings reveal that remdesivir and chloroquine are highly effective in the control of 2019-nCoV infection in vitro.”
Other governments have already acted upon these findings. Belgium official guidelines to doctors (see ) report that
“Results of Gautret’ study strongly supports the current choice of Hydroxychloroquine as first-line treatment (against COVID 19).”
Similar guidelines have been issued by the National Health Commission of the People’s Republic of China for treatment of COVID-19.
While the FDA has shown inordinate haste in pushing for the vaccination of children with harmful HPV vaccines, whose aluminium adjuvants have not been properly tested, it acts with sloth-like speed in approving the use of chloroquine for the many thousands who lie dying.
Andrew Longman  sums up why chloroquine should be speedily approved:
“Because chloroquine is the single most studied prescription in the history of the Earth, having proven its safety via tens of millions of patients in hundreds of millions of doses over seven decades, in every country in the world, by tens of thousands of doctors. There are hundreds of scientific journal articles on the safety of chloroquine. There are tens of thousands of papers on its properties. There is more evidence for the safe-use applications of chloroquine than for any other prescribed drug in the history of man. To question whether it’s safe isn’t just to insult the intelligence of America – it is an obtuse insult to the entire body of published medicine.”
