People do not die from a hoax. Whether you like the way this disease is being handled, it is a real disease.

I agree with your statement fully.
There’s a few armchair warriors on GTV. I sincerely hope that none of these morons have to encounter this ‘fake’ disease. It’s ugly and how it kills it’s victims is nasty.

And now in India there’s thousands dying from a “hoax”

A really idiotic article and an absolutely moronic conclusion. Wonder who wrote this as a joke ?

Seems like a good, rational article to me. U.S. Health officials
debunked Hydroxyhydrochlorine, Ivermectin, promoted lockdowns, masked, 6 feet anti-social distancing didn't they?

BTW Trump did many wonderful things; I would vote for him again. But he allowed the Corona Virus situation to be dangerously handled.

Really? What’s your background to be able to say anything about “treatment” of Covid? There’s No evidence for Hydroxychloroquine treatment or ivermectin treatment for Covid. It’s utterly idiotic. Since most people who get covid recover, if patients were given three Mars bars (that’s confectionery) a day and they recovered too, would you advocate giving Mars bars as “treatment”?
All these vaccines…More

All these vaccines are Trump’s productions. I wish he’d won the election (or let me rephrase - I wish he was allowed to legitimise his victory ) then the neo cons would line up to receive the vaccine. And no doubt lockdowns would be lifted far more readily.

Hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin as a treatment of COVID-19: results of an open-label non-randomized clinical trial

Conclusion: Despite its small sample size, our survey shows that hydroxychloroquine treatment is significantly associated with viral load reduction/disappearance in COVID-19 patients and its effect is reinforced by azithromycin.

You site a ridiculous “study” which only involved 46 participants (including patients and control group This is a non-informative manuscript with gross methodological shortcomings. The results do not justify the far-reaching conclusions about the efficacy of hydroxychloroquine in Covid-19, and in the view of this reviewer do not justify any conclusion at all.

Hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin and Azithromycin doesn’t work. It doesn’t. Work. It doesn’t work. There, I said it three times. Listen old chum. I’m a physician, I’ve managed covid patients. I know what I’m talking about. But you don’t. So just shut it.

Well, "physician"; if in fact you are what you claim to be, you've got quite the lofty opinion of yourself.

Here's another bit of evidence that you won't accept. Try to acquire some humility and then perhaps you'll realize that you do not in fact know everything unless of course you enjoy behaving like a fool in public.

Effect of Combination Therapy of Hydroxychloroquine and Azithromycin on Mortality in Patients With COVID-19

"In this study, we found a reduced in-hospital mortality in patients treated with a combination of HCQ and azithromycin after adjustment for comorbidities."
