CDC Removes Some Information About Hydroxychloroquine From Website

top news article eraoflightdotcomA federal health agency removed several paragraphs of information about hydroxychloroquine from its website, including recommended dosing information. Hydroxychloroquine, a drug used to treat malaria and lupus, has shown promising results in early trials against COVID-19, the disease caused by the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus, commonly known as the novel coronavirus.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said last month that hydroxychloroquine was being used in hospitals to treat COVID-19 patients. It later added information about dosing, based on recommendations from some clinicians.

“Although optimal dosing and duration of hydroxychloroquine for treatment of COVID-19 are unknown, some U.S. clinicians have reported anecdotally different hydroxychloroquine dosing such as: 400mg BID on day one, then daily for 5 days; 400 mg BID on day one, then 200mg BID for 4 days; 600 mg BID on day one, then 400mg daily on days 2-5,” it stated.

Four paragraphs of information about hydroxychloroquine and the closely related drug chloroquine were included by the agency. Three of those paragraphs were removed on April 7, including the information about dosing. The agency cut 409 words to 56.

The archived page showing the old page is here and the updated webpage is here.

The CDC didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

Several paragraphs about remdesivir, an experimental drug also being explored for use against COVID-19, were also removed.

Hydroxychloroquine is being prescribed across the nation, according to doctors, and a number of stories have emerged attesting to its alleged efficacy, including a lawmaker in Michigan. On the other hand, some medical professionals have said there isn’t enough proof to attribute the recovery of some patients to the drug, cautioning people to wait until clinical trials are finished.

Worldwide movement on the drug includes India banning its export and advising healthcare workers to take it as a prophylactic; Hungary banning its export; and Bahrain saying it has proven effective. Doctors across 30 nations rated the drug as the most effective treatment against COVID-19.

The United States obtained 29 million doses of hydroxychloroquine and the Food and Drug Administration issued an emergency use authorization for the drug and chloroquine for treatment of COVID-19 patients in hospitals.

The updated CDC page points people to the administration’s authorization as well as a website that contains information about clinical trials.

    Dr Didier Raoult who became noted during this crisis by publishing the results of his first small test where he combined hydroxychloroquine with azithromycin as a new Covid-19 treatment has just released the results of his latest test where he has 1061 patients. The most basic result is he saw 5 deaths.
    Perhaps we should do some simple math since the “so called experts in the medical profession” still seem to me mathematically challenged.
    5 deaths out of 1061 patients is 0.47%
    As of today France has recorded 117,749 confirmed cases and 12,210 deaths.
    This is a death rate of 10.37% per confirmed case.
    Currently the same random population in France shows a death rate that is 22 times as large in the population who was not treated compared to the 1061 in this test that were treated. This incredible result is the definition of statistically significant.
    For those asking for a “control group” as some magical requirement for statistical significance in their rigid illogical and unthinking brain, I recommend they use 1061 of the 12,210 dead French who are available in the morgues of France. They represent a truly random group and the only significant difference in their outcome compared to this treated group is they were blocked from a treatment the Chinese and Koreans have been dispensing FOR MONTHS and have published generally positive if not “PERFECT” results.
    At this point anyone who is blocking this treatment should be removed due to there being only 2 possible reasons for their obstruction. Either they are grossly incompetent, or they are criminally blocking a viable safe treatment for financial or professional benefit.

    MMS, or acidified sodium chloride was initially discovered when Mr. J. Humble contracted malaria.
    His discovery has saved many lives for mere pennies.
    We continue to trust the same privileged elite, who makes trillions from our suffering while screaming at truth tellers to shut up and trust their killers.
    The current insanity proves it.
