Yes. Chemotherapy is approved for human consumption. That doesn't mean it should be used to treat diabetes and that it won't have negative side effects that outweigh the benefits of using it to treat diabetes.

 

I'm acting like we don't know yet if it's good to use for Covid-19.

I get what you are trying to say. But chemo is probably a little over the top for your analogy. That is one of the harshest treatments to our bodies

Are you in any way skeptical about the veracity of this article in this tiny little paper?

 

Who wrote this?  It provides no real information. It's in the Opinion section.  It just says this guy's name, claims he's found the miracle cure just by testing, and the bulk of the article is a letter to Trump.

 

But... It's pretty weird that he writes a letter to Trump asking Trump to approve a cocktail of drugs including hydroxychloroquine, as if he wouldn't know that Trump has been pushing this drug for months. Is the claim that he independently stumbled on HCQ as a cure, and without knowing anything about the national discussion surrounding this drug, advocated for its use?

 

And this is a novel virus, meaning there are no known cures. So why is he so very quickly prescribing this cocktail of drugs to people without having any knowledge of how it'll react?  That's not sound medical practice.

 

This is super sketchy. And it flies in the face of findings by the FDA.  Are we presuming this local doctor has more resources than the FDA?

 

This article was written two weeks ago amidst a pandemic that has killed 10,000 Americans since it was published. If this really is a cure, why haven't other doctors started using it? Why haven't other news sources picked up this story?

 

And the Houston doctor you're referring to is the demon sex doctor.

I think this is going to be a lasting long term affect of the pandemic and I don’t think it’s bad. 
 

I have relatives that live in big cities that always said they loved it and never wanted to move. Now they want to move to a smaller community because their jobs allow them to live anywhere.

Found this interesting...

Except ya kinda are... You clean and sanitize shoes, bathrooms, kitchens,, etc. Prepare food to a certain standard. And if somebody drinks too much you're liable... Just follow the damn rules and get a loan if you need it (I know it's not that simple). It sucks that buisnesses are hurting, but we have to get this thing figured out. The government could have done more if they wanted to...

The study everyone is referring to for Hydroxychloroquine was flawed.  It was a non-controlled,  retrospective cohort study where people who were receiving Hydroxychloroquine were also receiving corticosteroids which, from another study, gives a clear benefit in reducing death.

 

So, in closing...The gold standard for studies like these are randomized , placebo-controlled.  There are no studies PERIOD for Hydroxychloroquine that use this gold standard.

 

This isn't politics...it's science.

This will be all over the country in a few weeks...

I'm guessing we limp our way to Labor Day weekend and call it a day.  Zoom starts after a "long" Labor Day weekend...

"Australia declares state of disaster in Victoria and imposes curfew in Melbourne" https://twitter.com/i/events/1289845747987300352?s=09

i wonder what they think of our numbers.    they declare a disaster with 671 cases and 7 deaths.

 

Australia’s second-most populous state declared a state of disaster, with Melbourne imposing stricter measures including nightly curfews and limits on movement. This comes as the state confirmed 671 new COVID-19 cases and seven new deaths.

Yeah, I could see that.  We already changed from 100% to 50-50 and we are "ready" to go all online.

It’s a bit insane to me to think schools are debating this. Just pay the coaches to sit home. Or do online video game tournaments.

You know, I am not sure.  I think they are still doing signups and taking a wait and see approach.
