and an effective treatment is as good as any vaccine – and cheaper too.
Let it be stated upfront that we at Goldsmith Money, do not know the first thing about medicine.
However, we imagine that medical authorities the world over must be thrilled with the data coming out about the hydroxychloroquine, zinc and antibiotic combination. A combination which is being used as a HIGHLY effective treatment against the Covid-19 coronavirus.
In an opinion article in Newsweek on 23 July, Professor of Epidemiology of the Vale Public School of Heath, Harvey A. Risch, discusses hydroxychloroquine and states –
When this inexpensive oral medication is given very early in the course of illness, before the virus has had time to multiply beyond control, it has shown to be highly effective, especially when given in combination with the antibiotics azithromycin or doxycycline and the nutritional supplement zinc.https://www.newsweek.com/key-defeating-covid-19-already-exists-we-need-start-using-it-opinion-1519535
Professor Risch then goes on discuss results of recent studies where the outcome for treatment is extremely positive. In one study, 400 high risk Covid19 patients were treated by Vladimir Zelenko, using the combination above – and there were zero deaths recorded.
Four other studies involving a total of 500 high risk nursing home and clinic patients, all being treated with the combination above – also recorded zero deaths.
You can read more about what Professor Risch has to say here. Even without formal medical training, it is hard not to interpret these results as highly encouraging (if not fantastic).
Is this combination the cure?
The article is indeed consistent with the statements of Dr Stella Immanuel who claims to have cured over 350 Covid19 patients using hydroxychloroquine, zinc and the Zithromax antibiotic. See her press conference video is embedded below.
Is zinc is the key?
On 10 July, Inga Wessels, Benjamin Rolles and Lother Rink published a perspective article on Frontiers in Immunology. The article was titled ‘The Potential Impact of Zinc Supplementation on COVID-19 Pathogenesis’. A link to the article is here.
Their review examined the potential for zinc to be used an inexpensive preventative and therapeutic agent in the fight against Covid19.
Zinc is an important element in the development and function of the human immune system. Zinc is particularly important to the body in combating viruses.
As demonstrated in the diagram above, the study found that there is an impressive intersection of known risk factors for zinc deficiency (blue circle) and the predisposition for a severe COVID-19 infection (red circle).
In conclusion the study found that whilst much data was still pending, the enumerated evidence strongly suggests great benefits from zinc supplementation as a preventative against Covid-19. This was especially true for the elderly and those with chronic diseases, who might have become zinc deficient.
Assuming the medical professionals quoted in this blog are correct – could we conclude that a simple and effective treatment and preventative for Covid-19, as being just as good as a vaccination? If not better?
And of course this is Goldsmith Money – where we want to understand the monetary costs of viable alternatives.
Suggestions have been made that the combination treatment above could be distributed at a cost under $US20 per course.
At the same time, the vaccine cure cost estimates appear to be ranging between $US2,000-$US3,000 per person and is likely to be more than 12 months away.
Fiscal prudence surely dictates that Governments of the world focus their efforts on the discussed treatment and prevention therapies. And no doubt those governments would be very eager to adopt such low cost solutions to the Covid-19 pandemic.
When all is said and done, there was one world leader who saw the potential of this combination early on. This was The President of the United States, Donald Trump.
Credit must be given where credit is due. Not only was President Trump one of the first national leaders to close borders to contain the spread of the deadly virus. He was also the first leader to discuss this potential cure, leading medical professionals down the correct path of study.
