The Australia Government needs to source Hydroxychloroquine NOW

Chloroquine can stop people dying from Covid 19

Hydroxychloroquine   is a hydroxylated version of chloroquine, with a similar mechanism of action. Hydroxychloroquine is preferred due to its safer profile.

Hydroxychloroquine is being trialled for use as prophylactic to prevent catching Covid 19


An large dose of Hydroxychloroquine is 6000mg or 30 x 200mg tablets

Currently India sells Hydroxychloroquine 15 x 200mg  tablets for $2.50[i]

For $5.00 you could save 1 person, for  $1,000,000 you could save 200,000 people

In the United States, several clinical trials of Hydroxychloroquine for prophylaxis or treatment of SARS-CoV-2 infection are planned.

By the time the trials have finished and the Hydroxychloroquine is purchased, transported and distributed, Australians will already be dead.

 

A team of researchers led by Didier Raoult at France’s IHU Méditerranée Infection published a small study on March 20 suggesting that hydroxychloroquine and the antibiotic azithromycin could pack a powerful punch against the virus. Hydroxychloroquine treatment alone appeared to eliminate the virus in 14 out of 20 people who received the drug for 6 days, compared to only 2 out of 16 people in the control group. Six people who received hydroxychloroquine also got azithromycin, and all of them were deemed “virologically cured” within 6 days (2020 Int. J. Antimicrob. Agents, DOI: j.ijantimicag.2020.105949).[ii]
