(Tea Party PAC) – The United States — along with the rest of the world — has been flipped upside down thanks to the spread of the potentially lethal and always serious COVID-19 virus, commonly refered to as the coronavirus, with people everywhere social distancing and shutting down businesses and gatherings in order to prevent the spread of the illness.
While things appear to look very bleak for the foreseeable future, President Trump recently made an announcement that is providing folks with a little bit of hope, a ray of sunshine during a cloudy, rainy day.
According to the president, a drug called Chloroquine has been shown thus far to be very successful in treating coronavirus and the drug will be made available right away for U.S. patients suffering from the disease.
Here’s more on this from Gateway Pundit:
President Trump made the announcement at the daily Coronavirus press conference in the White House. The president added that chloroquine has shown, “very, very encouraging results” in treating the coronavirus!
New York Governor Cuomo has agreed to start using the drug in his state immediately!
On Monday Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, announced that the first trial vaccine for the coronavirus is now being tested. The trial taking place in Seattle, which has been a hotbed for COVID-19. The test includes 45 people age 18-55 and they are receiving two injections, one at zero days, one at 28 days. The individuals will then be followed for one year. The trial results is still months away.
A vaccine made this quickly during an outbreak is almost unheard of throughout all of history. We are living in remarkable times, folks, a blessing for which we should get down on our knees and thank God for every opportunity we get.
These individuals taking the early trials are almost like heroes, boldly going out to test this vaccine and make sure it is both safe and effective for individuals to have. A vaccine won’t completely stop the virus now or in the future, but it will greatly reduce its spread and prevent so many cases from popping up all over the place like they are now.
On Monday night Laura Ingraham reported that a new study revealed the anti-viral medication chloroquine is successful in fighting the coronavirus.
Laura invited Dr. Gregory Rigano, the co-author of the study to discuss the latest findings.
Dr. Rigano said their study found that those COVID-19 patients who took hydroxy-chloroquine were found free of the disease in 6 days. The patients were testing negative for the coronavirus in six days!
Dr. Rigano also said taking choroquine could act as a preventative.
This is fantastic news. People who are super concerned about what to do when they contract this virus can take heart knowing that there is something out there that can be used to treat this awful illness.
The only concern about this for the moment is a shortage of the medication since the demand for it is going to spike dramatically. Hopefully adjustments to production of it will be made quickly so that the supply can readily meet the demand as new cases pop up.
