Two patients in New York City were taken off ventilators taken out of intensive care after they received the experimental drug leronlimab.
At least two of seven patients on leronlimad saw significant improvement.

If you’re like us you’ve been sitting around with nothing else to do other than to contemplate the global economic disaster that we’re currently enduring. Is it a deep state plot, an act of utter incompetence by our leaders or just a bunch of well intentioned pointy headed bureaucrats in over their heads? It really doesn’t matter which. This disaster has been completely mishandled from the get-go. So says noted retired critical care physician, Dr. Ted Noel, the time for quarantines was when the Coronavirus was first discovered by China. According to study, the disease could have been halted in its tracks if China had done the right, which of course they didn’t. It was a simple matter of quarantining Wuhan and the surrounding areas. Once 10’s of thousands of Chinesetravelers were allowed to leave Wuhan, the entire world became infected. The virus was out in the wild, as Dr. Noel observed. At that point the best thing for governments and health specialists to do, was to reverse quaranntine those in the vulnerable segment. Theh infection rate had already gone full hockey stick and there was no way to stop it. The good news, however, is that the virus is extremely suceptible to heat and humidity as numerous studies have shown. This will result in a dramatic cessation come spring and summer. Most people are actually immune to the virus, as high as 80 percent, as we discovered from the infection rates experienced on the Diamond Princess Cruise Ship. Tee actual death rate was 1 percent, likely increased by ineffective medical treatment on the ship. The problem in Italy and NYC is that their medical systems were socialized and therefore and inadequate to the task. An administrator gets to play G-d. His decision determines who will live and who will die. This is the best presentation to date on the topic.

Governor Gretchen Whitmer from the Michigan Directorate has threatened to turn the eye of the state upon any doctor or pharmacist who would attempt to prescribe chloroquine to treat their patients suffering from coronavirus. Medical licenses may need to be revoked.
The agency’s March 24 letter warns physicians and pharmacists of professional consequences for the prescribing of hydroxychloroquine (and chloroquine). Beyond the rational recommendation against hoarding, the letter includes threats of “administrative action” against the licenses of doctors that prescribe hydroxychloroquine.

The coronavirus story has generated a number of major subplots. First is the origin of the virus. Did it occur naturally or was it created in a Chinese, American or Israeli weapons lab? If bioengineered, did it somehow escape or was it deliberately released? As the governments that might have been involved in the process have become very tight lipped and the mainstream media is reluctant to embrace conspiracy theories, we the public may never know the answer.

Initially the coronavirus outbreak started with 186 persons and 38 died, a ghastly shocking mortality rate of 20.4%. A public health emergency was considered.
Right away World Health Organization (WHO) authorities realized doctors weren’t prepared to manage such an urgent situation. Patients were crowded in emergency rooms and multibed hospital rooms; family members visited freely, facilitating a second spread of the virus. Doctors narrowly focused on treating patients rather than managing the epidemic from a larger point of view.
The socioeconomic impact of the outbreak was great. Yet the numbers of infections and deaths from coronavirus were smaller than the numbers from tuberculosis or seasonal influenza.

She just stated what I’ve been saying since the Diamond Princess.
Either (1) R0 is wrong (e.g. as I’ve postulated, perhaps — likely — a trinominal) or (2) the virus has a very high silent attack rate, was here for months before we knew it, and the cases it generated were in the noise of ordinary flu with negative tests, which are endemic every year.
Literally since Diamond Princess was quarantined I’ve stated one or both had to be true. I’ve pointed it out every single day in podcasts and Tickers. It was obvious from the experience on the ship. It was also obvious when Wuhan unlocked and didn’t have an instant explosion in new cases. It was obvious when South Korea was able to get the virus under control. It was obvious when Japan didn’t instantly detonate when they didn’t lock anything down.
from The Mind Unleashed:
However, the FDA has only authorized the test for use in “authorized laboratories and patient care settings.”
(ZH) — One week after the FDA granted emergency approval to a point-of-care test purporting to produce results in under 45 minutes, the agency has granted “emergency use authorization” to Abbott Labs so the company can bring to market a rapid-response test for COVID-19 that can tell if somebody is infected in under five minutes, and is portable enough to be used in practically any health-care setting.
from Humans Are Free:
Amid a pandemic panic over the coronavirus, evidence for a possibly effective treatment has been denounced as ‘fake news’ – even when offered by a renowned scientist with decades of experience.
Take Didier Raoult, a French microbiologist with undeniable expertise, even if some of his views are about as eccentric as his appearance.

Good news, reports indicate that a hospital in the US has finally begun using Vitamin C to treat coronavirus patients, and it looks like it’s working quite well. We were first turned on to vitamin C and the idea that it may help protect against this new coronavirus last month, when the US National Library of Medicine posted the information about their clinical trials on their website. The title of one of the trials is “Vitamin C Infusion for the Treatment of Severe 2019-nCoV Infected Pneumonia.” The sponsor is ZhiYong Peng, and the responsible party is Zhongnan Hospital in Wuhan University (ZNWU).

On Friday night Laura Ingraham reported on the latest study by the French research team led by the renowned epidemiologist Dr. Didier Raoult was able to repeat his findings from a previous study.
This time Dr. Raoult administered hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin to 80 patients and observed improvement in EVERY CASE except for a very sick 86-year-old with an advanced form of coronavirus infection.

Fifteen years ago researchers investigated whether flu vaccines are effective, that is, save lives. These researchers noted that vaccination rates for the flu among high-risk senior adults rose from a low 15-20% prior to 1980 to over 65% beginning in 2001. However, counterintuitively flu-related mortality rose dramatically.
The researchers performed their calculations and concluded the flu-related mortality rate was very close to what would have occurred had no vaccine been available!
by Larry Romanoff, Global Research:
The US State Department and media are heavily promoting as theology that COVID-19 is “a Chinese virus and China spread it around the world”, demanding apologies and more. One American law firm in Florida filed a class action lawsuit against the Chinese government, seeking compensation for ‘damages’. (1) I have reviewed and analysed the details available of all first and subsequent confirmed infections in all countries, including infection source, virus strain, and timeline, which data provide ample evidence that this American theology is not supported by the facts. There appears to have been two major ‘waves’ of global infection, the first around the end of January, the second a month later. (2) (3) (4)
