    I'm all for trying it. I doubt it's gonna turn out to be that convenient and some people could get jacked in the process, but try it all. Another small sample in Paris was not promising. But we're at Desperation Level WTF at this point.

    There isn’t a silver bullet out there. It’s going to take a multifaceted approach. If this can help some people then great.

    " I think this is the beginning of the end of the pandemic"

    "Nobody give the combo had to be intubated"

    At this point I think everyone admitted to hospital and anyone with risk factor should be started on this cocktail.

    I'm glad for anything that can work but humans have an ugly side to them. Doctors started writing scripts for themselves and paranoid patients. This has already significantly reduced supply for lupus patients who rely on the drug for relief from some truly awful symptoms.

    The lupus patients and RA patients must move to the front of the line in filling their scripts. Someone in the drug supply industry must insure their supply as humanitarian.
    NYC has to encourage high risk COVID patients take a course or two of hydroxychloroquine with EKG monitoring...to reduce the needed use of scarce ventilators. This may become true for LA patients and others...we must have 'realtime' virus testing STAT!
