This is the second study on hydroxychloroquine that vindicates Trump’s position in the early days of the pandemic.

Back in July, a Henry Ford Health System study conducted in Michigan found that hospitalized patients that were given hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) were more likely to survive.

New COVID Drug Study Has Leftists Eating Their Words… When’s The Apology?

That seems like some vindication for President Trump who was saying that the inexpensive anti-malarial drug could be an effective therapeutic for the coronavirus back in March.

In case you forgot, here’s a snippet of how the HCQ saga went.

Basically, Trump said that initial results looked promising, then a handful of Democrat Governors actually banned the use of hydroxychloroquine for coronavirus treatment. Some of these bans were later retracted.

Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube censored videos of doctors who claimed that the drug was an effective therapeutic. 

But President Trump didn’t back down. In early April, he said that people were dying and they shouldn’t dismiss HCQ as a possible treatment.

Now, it looks like he was absolutely right.

A new peer-reviewed study that examined the effectiveness of hydroxychloroquine, zinc, and azithromycin shows that hospitalizations and mortality rates were significantly lower for patients taking the drug cocktail.

The study, set to be published in the International Journal of Antimicrobial Agents in December, determined that “Low-dose hydroxychloroquine combined with zinc and azithromycin was an effective therapeutic approach against COVID-19.”

A total of 141 patients diagnosed with the coronavirus were treated with the three-drug cocktail over a period of five days and compared to a control group of 377 people who tested positive for the virus but were not given the treatment.

The study found that “the odds of hospitalisation of treated patients was 84% less than in the untreated patients,” and only one patient died from the group being treated with the drugs compared to 13 deaths in the untreated group.

Seems a bit more effective than having everyone slap a piece of fabric on their faces in public, doesn’t it?

Adam Crigler, musician and a former colleague of independent journalist Tim Pool, said the same thing on a recent episode of his podcast. Crigler cited a tweet that shows that the benefits of HCQ outweigh the risks.

He also asked how many people needlessly died because the media “fact-checked” Trump’s claim about hydroxychloroquine.

Does this mean that we can say, “The Media lied, people died” now?

Because that’s basically what happened here. The blood is on their hands.
