Hydroxychloroquine Saves Nursing Home In Texas: All Of The Models By The Professional Medical Community Are Wrong

BY Herschel Smith
3 months ago

It’s been panned by the bureaucratic medical community, but the data shows that it works.  Now, it has saved a nursing home in Texas (via Gateway Pundit).

Dr. Armstrong and others at the Resort at Texas City Nursing home knew time wasn’t on their side.

“Two of our residents had symptoms and that’s when we tested everybody,” said nursing home Executive Director Jan Piveral.

56 residents and 33 staff members were COVID-19 positive.

“Our Goal was to make sure we could shelter them in place so we don’t spread it to other people,” Armstrong said. “Then also at the same time treat them so they would get better.”

Armstrong says he knew residents who ended up in the hospital had a higher mortality rate.

“Our goal was to keep them here and treat them with the medications we had available,” he said.

When Armstrong began administering Hydroxychloroquine to it was controversial but appeared promising.

“If we didn’t make the decision quickly then we could potentially lose 15 to 20% of the residents which was not an option,” said the Doctor.

Armstrong’s approach was to begin administering Hydroxychloroquine a Zpac and Zinc just as soon as a resident first started showing symptoms.

The patients were being monitored daily.

“We did EKGs on each of these patients to make sure they didn’t have the cardiac side effects that everyone talks about,” Armstrong said. “None of our patients did.”

Armstrong doesn’t call the Hydroxychloroquine a cure and is aware of all the recent reports that say the drug shouldn’t be used to treat COVID-19.

But he points out only one of the nursing homes COVID-19 patients has died.

“Everyone who got on treatment who started on treatment is actually doing really well,” he said.

Heresy!  Sacrilege!  Burn them at the stake!  The high priest of epidemiology, Anthony Fauci, doesn’t like it and wants instead for patients to use Remdesivir.  Because.  Big Pharma.  Money.  Same for Ivermectin, which has been shown to work well.  We can’t have patients using therapeutics that don’t enrich big Pharma.  We must use the entirety of the MSM to pan this advice as anti-science, myths, fairy tales and dangerous.

People must bow to the church of professional medicine.  Professional medicine is the entity giving you all of the ratios today about CV-19 cases and deaths.  The denominator is meaningless.  As I’ve pointed out so many times before, many millions of people have already contracted this disease, built the antibodies for it, shed it, and never even knew they had it.  This prison in Tennessee is just such an example.

The Tennessee Department of Correction confirmed the positive cases on Friday. Out of the 2,450 total tests, more than 1,300 staff and inmates tested positive.

According to the state, analysis of the test results confirmed that 98% of those who tested positive are asymptomatic.

Not just not dead, but asymptomatic.  They didn’t even know they had the disease.  So the denominator is wrong.  But the numerator is wrong too.  As I’ve pointed out, “Presumed Covid-19 Diagnosis” is a thing.  A patient may enter the hospital due to a motorcycle accident with massive internal injuries, and die shortly thereafter.

If he had a fever when he died, he is a “presumed Covid-19 diagnosis” and is reported to have died from CV-19.  This isn’t a joke.  It’s happening, because the FedGov has stipulated massive amounts of money to hospitals based on CV-19 patients in the CARES act.  Administration is pressuring doctors to diagnose CV-19, and those numbers are going into the totals, for diagnosis and deaths.

So the numerator means nothing.  The denominator means nothing.  That means that the ratio means nothing.  They call this science.  I do science every work day of my life, and this isn’t science.  It’s more akin to witchcraft and sorcery.

But what has succeeded is a change to the daily lexicon for Americans.  Now, phrases like “social distancing,” “Go Home … Stay Home,” “We’re all in this together,” “Resilient together,” “Trust the science,” and similar claptrap is not just known but believed by millions of Americans as necessary protocol for life.

They have managed to reduce dependence upon and community with church and family, and increase dependence and community with the state.  That’s not by accident.  The priests now wear gowns, gloves and masks, with their high priest wearing a suit and being duly ordained and recognized by globalist groups like the World Health Organization.

Community, brotherhood, friendship, family, business and love now depend upon Zoom meetings, email, Skype, phone calls, and software written by globalist companies.  GM is producing ventilators which by some 98% kill the patients because they blow up the lungs like a balloon for a disease that isn’t ARDS, and never was.  Social media is quick to delete, erase, ban and otherwise disappear any hint of lack of fealty or infidelity to the powerCongregants are told what constitutes correct worship and what doesn’t as they meet in cars to listen to sermons.

“Science,” which isn’t really science, was a useful tool, a catalyst, and a pretext, for the changes we see in America today.

And just to remind you yet again, all of their models are wrong.  Rate of infection, active cases, number of cases, deaths, effective therapeutics, patient risk assessment, disease description and effective treatment, and effect on the economy of printing some 8 trillion dollars.

All of their models are wrong.  All of them.  None of them are worth the paper they’re written on or band width they suck up.

Science my ass.  I do science.  This isn’t science, and if you believe it is, you’re a sucker.

    That first Ivermectin link went down the memory hole. Another paper from the same author is here: https://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=3580524 This report is especially encouraging because of the large sample size (704 treated with Ivermectin and 704 controls) and because it seemed to help even those who were late in the disease.

    But wait, there is no more of a lockdown than in a jail. So, lockdowns, which I know from the start, are totally fake. What stops the spread of a virus? People who already have the antibodies for it, quickly stopped shedding it, can’t catch it, dead end.

    The ultimate “vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called” of course, is the claim that Christ could not/did not rise from the dead and secondarily, that creation is no creation at all but some grand accident which leaves you of course, not coincidentally, with no purpose because you therefore couldn’t have been put here for a purpose greater than yourself; conditioned by that state of mind to be made a slave sine you have zero value because your god is just a puddle of ooze and you’re no better than a troop of slightly smarter baboons.

    It won’t be long, the oligarchs already claim it, that to kill a child or virgin will be seen as cleansing or salvific or a source of power some how. Mark my words, it’s coming. Those people are quite actually followers of devils. You might say, well CV19 is just about the money. It’s never just about the money, and it’s not just about power as government, it’s about evil.

    It can’t be reformed. The government of the united states needs to be replaced, in it’s entirety, yes, even your favorite guy or gal has to go.

    Please stop candy coating it and just say what you think!

    Just kidding of course, it’s hard to get laypersons (management) to understand why calibrations insitu are better than “factory calibrations”, let alone how to filter the propaganda spewed by the EneMedia.

    Use of Remdesivir may be worse than useless. I ran across this: https://medium.com/@yurideigin/lab-made-cov2-genealogy-through-the-lens-of-gain-of-function-research-f96dd7413748 It is a very long and very technical technical article well beyond my ability to analyze. Still, this section caught my attention: “Moreover, in the presence of some antiviral compounds, such as nucleoside analogs (e.g. ribavirin or remdesivir), mutation rates in RNA viruses can increase even further:
    We obtained an estimate of the spontaneous mutation rate of ca. 10⁻⁴ substitutions per site or lower, a value within the typically accepted range for RNA viruses. A roughly threefold increase in mutation rate and a significant shift in mutation spectrum were observed in samples from patients undergoing 6 months of interferon plus ribavirin treatment. This result is consistent with the known in vitro mutagenic effect of ribavirin and suggests that the antiviral effect of ribavirin plus interferon treatment is at least partly exerted through lethal mutagenesis.”
    Is it a good idea idea to treat very sick patients, that is people with a heavy viral load, with a viral mutagen in the context of a global pandemic. Natural viral mutation combined with natural selection is bad enough without possible acceleration from artificial mutation sources.

    Interesting. They’ve just gotten past being indistinguishable from witch doctors, and now they’re doing this?

    I feel I must apologize to witch doctors around the world for linking them to sawbones.

    A question, then a point:

    Did the testing done in Tennessee and other places distinguish between Covid19 (AKA the Chinese Communist Party virus,) and other coronavirus infections? I’ll wait to see the peer-review on this before rendering an opinion, but my guess is, and that is all it is, a guess, that these so-called “CCP virus” tests show simply corona virus antibodies. Are there ‘shadow cases’? Undoubtedly. Are all of the positives for general coronavirus CCP virus? Undoubtedly NOT. The common cold is still a thing, and a widespread one at that. I’ve seen that same problem in other so-called studies, hence my skepticism.

    The smearing of the use of hydroxychloroquine for CCP virus infection is undoubtedly a real thing, and undoubtedly hurts Americans who are sick with this disease. Consider that malaria patients, who are taking similar doses to Covid patients, are being allowed to CONTINUE USING their medications WITHOUT DIRECT MEDICAL SUPERVISION. One would think that the CFR for diagnosed malaria must be much higher than CCP virus which is currently running around 6%. Malaria patients must be dying like flies!

    Well it turns out that even in the third world, the CFR for seriously ill malaria patients is less than 1% of those diagnosed. I was not able on short notice to get data from first world sources, but my BS detector is screaming. If the death rate from Covid is more than 6 times higher than from malaria, then why is treatment of a less dangerous disease (malaria) with such a supposedly dangerous drug OK, and treatment of the supposedly more dangerous disease (CCP virus, ) too risky?

    The only way this makes any sense is if the FDA is trying to protect drug companies, and not the American public. The market for malaria drugs in this country is miniscule. But the market for the Chinese Communist Party virus, now that is a big market. And as the use of chloroquines decreases, so the market for those who ARE going to get severely ill from this, whatever percentage you want to use, is going to increase. And that makes my blood boil.

    With regard to all who serve the Light,
    Historian

    I’ve been following George Webb and Paul Cottrell since you first posted here. They were talking about the people admitted to hospitals with covid symptoms all having low vitamin D and C. Paul Cottrell mentioned that almost everyone in NYC has low vitamin D for obvious reasons. So the government remedy is to keep everyone locked inside.

    It’s interesting that so many people tested who were found to have the virus had no symptoms. A test of homeless people showed a large number with the virus and no symptoms. Possibly being homeless they are getting enough sun to keep their vitamin D levels up. George Webb opined that had the bioweapon been released in California on the beaches in the summer, no one would have likely ever known, as no one would ever have presented with symptoms.

    I personally know of two patients who recovered rapidly from using hydroxychloroquine. It works when prescribed correctly and soon enough. I saw a post on twitter where a woman with lupus who is prescribed hydroxychloroquine sent some to her daughter who had the virus and couldn’t shake it for weeks. Cleared it right up. Apparently within hours she improved. Twitter deleted the mother’s account the next day.

    I have submitted this comment along with a huge amount of logical considerations relative to this dz (disease) entity. I will make one recommendation which is TOTALLY unsubstantiated, understand that NOTHING can be substantiated because those considered EXPERTS have declared this a “Novel Virus”, meaning New and UNKNOWN. No one knows anything about it or has NOT stepped up. I declare myself as expert as they are since I have a Medical Degree and am a Thesis or 2 Research Papers short of a Masters in Microbiology. Now to the Heart of this issue. Why would we not consider using Hydroxychloroquine prophylactically, as is done for malaria prevention. The studies have already been done on over 500,000 USofA citizens in Vietnam and the safety is well known. In addition, one can find the recommendation for this sort of use on the CDC website, 500 mg of the salt once/week starting before your trip to Indonesia or other malarial areas starting a week before you leave and continuing for 4 weeks after return. We could test this approach on the “Endemic Areas” of NYC and New Orleans. I can get NO ONE to address this approach. We could start with the “vulnerable populations” in Nursing Homes and other areas where older patients with existing co-morbidities exist. I have some supporting anecdotal information that supports this contention (that is the ONLY information that exists, in any case!). Someone give me “blow back” on this approach, please!
