Introduction

If you have been following the Covid 19 (C19) briefings from Governor Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) from April 5 – 14 you may have noticed much improved data sets for the state of New York surrounding:

  • Total New Hospitalizations
  • Change in Daily ICU Admissions
  • Change in Daily Intubations
  • Change in Daily Discharges

The last week of March New York received over 800,000 doses of Hydroxychloroquine and Chloroquine accompanied by a proportional amount of Azithromycin (Zpack) for distribution statewide.

The question is why this dramatic improvement -- and over such a short period of time?

Part of the answer could be the HCQ — or is it all social distancing and stay-at-home?

Then there is this interview of Peter Navarro by John Berman that confirms extensive use of hydroxychloroquine. This is the epitome of how politicized hydroxychloroquine has become..

“…in the New York health and hospitals system, virtually every patient now that comes in presenting COVID-19 symptoms is given a cycle of hydroxychloroquine…”

“…FEMA would immediately begin surging hydroxy into the hot zones to be dispensed only between a doctor and patient decision…”

  • April 6 – Finally, on the day the article appeared a question about Hydroxychloroquine trials from Cuomo’s press pool…

 

Questions for Andrew Cuomo...

What is the success rate surrounding the use of 820,000 doses of hydroxychloroquine/chloroquine/Zpack?

Did the hydroxychloroquine/chloroquine/Zpack directly effect the sudden decrease in new hospitalizations, ICU admissions and intubations throughout the beginning of April?

How can the number of Coronavirus deaths be so high when the number of intubations has fallen so much?

 

 

Question for Dr. Fauci...

We know you want studies and empirical data on HCQ...

So here is a hypothetical…

If, after numerous trials, we knew an HCQ regime worked in an overwhelming amount of cases what guidance would you give the President relative to the re-opening of our country?
