Coronavirus (Italy) – From North to South 1039 patients treated with hydroxychloroquine at home. The end result: “Collapse of hospitalisations”

“I am a doctor and, positive for Covid19 , I immediately took hydroxychloroquine : in 3-4 days the fever and the other symptoms disappeared “. This is how Paola Varese , head of cancer medicine at the Ovada hospital in Piedmont , begins. “I applied the same protocol on myself that I planned for 276 patients at home,” continues Varese , stressing that “timely intervention by family doctors in patients’ homes is essential, with hydroxychloroquine associated with heparin (and if necessary the ‘ antibiotic ). It is presumable – he says – that the collapse of the hospitalisation is due to the immediate use of the drug : we only had 7 hospitalisations: according to the projected expectations of the ISS we should have had 55 “.

Hydroxychloroquine is one of the treatments against Coronavirus being tested , and is approved by AIFA (Italian Medicines Agency). The pioneer in this field is the Director of Hematology-Oncology of Piacenza, Luigi Cavanna . It was the first in Italy to use it, an intuition that is proving significant . “Since February 25, I have treated 209 patients and in 90% of cases the response has been positive . Hospitalisations have collapsed: from 30% of hospitalised (serious or moderate cases) to less than 5% “. The change, according to Cavanna, came with administration of hydroxychloroquine from the early stages of the disease , when patients were at home, and resulted in the hospitalisation of very few cases in acute conditions. A treatment that, according to preliminary data collected and systematised by 5 different ASLs on 1,039 patients, is working throughout Italy .

Stark madness to ban ivermectin

Buried in the note is the real reason for making ivermectin inaccessible – the fear that persons taking it ‘may elect not to be vaccinated as part of the national Covid-19 vaccination program’. This is outrageous. When someone is infected with Covid, it is too late to bother with vaccination. They need early treatment. To deny it to coerce them into accepting a vaccine, one of whose side-effects is death, is immoral.

Australia’s TGA Bans GPs from Prescribing Ivermectin

Australia’s medicine and therapeutic regulatory, the Therapeutic Good Administration (TGA) recently took the gloves off with Ivermectin, the economical anti-parasitic drug associated with at least 63 completed clinical trials involving SARS-CoV-2, the virus behind COVID-19. Now TGA formally places a national prohibition on off-label prescribing of ivermectin to all general practitioners. A comparable move as to what TGA did with hydroxychloroquine in 2020. Clearly further evidence of tightening encroachment of the critically important doctor-patient treatment relationship allowing consent to medical treatment using off-label medications. Of course, this isn’t occurring in a vacuum—it’s part of an unfolding, integrated and what have the signs of a coordinated and orchestrated government action to stop any and all treatments other than those the government declares acceptable.
