Right now, every country is drooling over the need to attain as many HCQ pills as they can. But the question is, does it really help with Covid-19?
I, personally don’t think that it does. HCQ is a medicine used to cure malaria.
HCQ is also used to treat Lupus, an autoimmune disease.
And given the fact that we know absolutely nothing about the biological properties of Covid-19, I don’t think if giving HCQ is a great way out.
HCQ boosts a person’s immune system and helps fight the disease.
Covid-19 might possibly be immune to the drug. Many parasites have been known to be immune to various drugs.
Like, for example, a certain parasite gets hyperactive if a person is given a shot of interferon which, otherwise treats various other viruses.
Maybe, Covid-19 is immune to HCQ and gets hyperactive in some cases, leading to instant deaths or HCQ poisoning.
Mathematically, using HCQ as a potential cure would only lead to saving 2-5% of the people infected with Covid-19.
And where I come from, those are NOT good odds at all.
It might prevent one from being infected by Covid-19 coronavirus in some parts of the world, if consumed sooner, but after one is infected, it surely won’t serve the purpose.
