Uganda, a country in east-central Africa, has a 2018 population of 42.729 million, which is 13% of the United States’ population of  328.239 million in 2019.

And yet Uganda has 1,603 COVID-19 cases and just 15 deaths (h/t Rush Limbaugh), wherease the U.S. has 5,656,744 COVID-19 cases and 175,105 deaths.

That means:

Uganda’s number of COVID-19 cases is only 0.028% of the number of U.S. COVID-19 cases; and

Uganda’s number of COVID-19 deaths is only 0.008% of the number of U.S. COVID-19 deaths.

How can that be, when Uganda is one of the poorest countries in the world, with a per capita GDP of $769 (37.8% of the population in 2012 lived on less than $1.25 a day) and a poor healthcare system.

This is why:

Uganda is afflicted with malaria, a disease caused by parasites that enter the body through the bite of a mosquito.

Malaria is common in Africa. In 2012, Uganda had the 6th highest annual deaths from malaria in Africa.

Hydroxychloroquine is a drug used to treat or prevent malaria — the same hydroxycholoroquine that:

  • President Trump had taken to prevent getting COVID-19.
  • Dr. Stella Immanuel said she had used, effectively, to treat her COVID-19 patients. A native of Nigeria, Dr. Immanuel is a physician at Rehoboth Medical Center in Houston, Texas. On July 27, 2020, with other medical professionals attending the America’s Frontline Doctors Summit in front of the U.S. Supreme Court, Dr. Immanuel spoke out against the current accepted COVID-19 treatment and the need to wear masks. She said: “In the past few months, after taking in over 350 patients, we [Rehoboth Medical Center] have not lost one. Not a diabetic, not somebody with high blood pressure, not somebody with asthma, not an old person. We’ve not lost one patient.” (Heavy.com)
  • But the video of Dr. Immanuel testifying to the effectiveness of hydroxychloroquine was taken down censored by Twitter, YouTube and Facebook, and denounced by Bill Gates as “outrageous”. It just so “happens” that Bill Gates is developing a COVID-19 vaccine with German biotech company CureVac.
  • Another physician, Dr. Harvey A. Risch, writes in Newsweek: “The Key to Defeating COVID-19 Already Exists. We Need to Start Using It”.
  • Yet another physician, Dr. Brian C. Procter, also testifies to hydrochloroquine’s effectiveness against COVID-19.

There was a White House petition asking President Trump to sign an emergency executive order to allow over-the-counter (OTC) use of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) to protect against COVID-19. But the petition didn’t garner enough signatures. Link to petition here.
