In a novel virus where we have no immunity, a possibly uncontrolled spread (no matter how much the first wave may have started to pass and lull a naive population unused to true strife into a clueless bliss) and scientists/physicians in a stampede to come up with a treatment or vaccine, it’s easy to see the controversies. This is especially true in the age of social media with here say and the “telephone” gossip that gets put out as truth and then propagated. It makes everything and anything suspect if it doesn’t fit one’s political leanings. In hospitalized patients, especially the most severely ill, the evidence points to harm. This is consistent with the “boots on the ground” experience I’ve seen myself and with the immeasurable communications we have with one another in our world. It’s a furious communication and sharing of information from both experience and what trials are ongoing and by whom. The next step will be to see if given prophylactically or at the beginning stages of symptoms Hydroxychloroquine has a benefit. This is ongoing and we’ll see. In the meantime I’m not giving it to anyone who’s being admitted through the ER.
