Cardillo is the CEO of Mend Urgent Care, which has locations in Sherman Oaks, Van Nuys and Burbank. He said he has found it only works if combined with zinc. The drug, he said, opens a channel for the zinc to enter the cell and block virus replication. He says that the drug shouldn't be prescribed for those who are only mildly ill, because he doesn't want to exhaust our supplies. But he says it has "very promising results" for the "most severely ill."
Meanwhile, the media continues its open war on hydroxychloroquine. The Bad Orange Man said it's good, therefore, it must also be bad. They pretend their bias comes from "experts" but they always seem to forget to quote the expert medical doctors treating patients and seeing success. Someone is anti-hope b/c that goes hand-in-hand with being anti-Trump. Trump and the others at the briefing SAID it's not for everyone and even some shouldn't based on their health history. And it should come as no surprise some wacked AOC want-a-be wants to refer crimes against humanity' charges against the president.
But sure, be unhinged. Alinsky tactics all the time at CNN:
Why today's WH briefing was disturbing: presidential misinformation from the podium; dangerous and unconfirmed claims about hydroxychloroquine; gratuitous shots at rival politicians. pic.twitter.com/dHqUtCzkKC— Brian Stelter (@brianstelter) April 4, 2020
If hydroxychloroquine is proven to work well against COVID-19, its sales would jump, but pharmaceutical analysts say they don’t know of any company or individual that stands to make a windfall. That’s because there’s so much competition and the vast majority of prescriptions filled are for generics. But that hasn't stopped Ricky Maddow and the frothing Tin Foil Hat Brigades from aping their conspiracy theories.
