As vaccine talks continue to emerge as the only ‘cure’ to this pandemic, what’s actually happening on the ground tells a different story. A Los Angeles doctor is reporting remarkable success in treating COVID-19 patients using a specific combination of zinc and hydroxychloroquine – the drug that is controversial regardless of it being inexpensive and readily available.
Dr. Anthony Cardillo, an ER specialist and the CEO of Mend Urgent Care, has been prescribing the zinc and hydroxychloroquine combination or patients experiencing severe symptoms associated with COVID-19. In an interview with KABC-TV, Cardillo stated:
“Every patient I’ve prescribed it to has been very, very ill and within 8 to 12 hours, they were basically symptom-free, […] So, clinically I am seeing a resolution.”
“We have to be cautious and mindful that we don’t prescribe it for patients who have COVID who are well,” he said. “It should be reserved for people who are really sick, in the hospital or at home very sick, who need that medication. Otherwise we’re going to blow through our supply for patients that take it regularly for other disease processes.”
According to Cardillo, it’s the combination of zinc and hydroxychloroquine that does the job. “[Hydrocychloroquine] opens the zinc channel” allowing the zinc to enter the cell, which then “blocks the replication of cellular machinery.”
Cardillo added that the drug should only be prescribed to patients who are on the more severe side when it comes to symptoms. This will help keep the limited supply of the drug ready for those who truly need it.
As we have covered in detail, there are multiple more ‘natural’ treatments and prevention measures being used around the world, and they should be noted by people as thus far they show promise. They, of course, have come with a great deal of controversy as mainstream media and health officials attack natural options as hoaxes.
All of this, of course, continues to raise the question: why is there such a strong push for a vaccine, and perhaps a mandated one, when there are other options available now? Why is the world listening to Bill Gates and his calls for further lockdown until the vaccine is ready?
