Dr. Anthony Fauci, one of the lead members of President Trumps Coronavirus task force, has some explaining to do. According to several news reports, Dr. Fauci has known about a favorable study that could have saved countless lives but chose to ignore in favor of a vaccine that could take over a year to develop. In a study published in the Virology Journal, the official publication for the National Institute of Health, in which Fauci was the Director, chloroquine is “a potent inhibitor of SARS coronavirus infection and spread.” What? Didn’t Dr. Fauci say that there is “scant” or “anecdotal” evidence proving chloroquine to be an effective drug?
Here is an excerpt from The National Institute of Health’s study of Chloroquine:
Background: Severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) is caused by a newly discovered coronavirus (SARS-CoV). No effective prophylactic or post-exposure therapy is currently available.
Results: We report, however, that chloroquine has strong antiviral effects on SARS-CoV infection of primate cells. These inhibitory effects are observed when the cells are treated with the drug either before or after exposure to the virus, suggesting both prophylactic and therapeutic advantage. In addition to the well-known functions of chloroquine such as elevations of endosomal pH, the drug appears to interfere with terminal glycosylation of the cellular receptor, angiotensin-converting enzyme 2. This may negatively influence the virus-receptor binding and abrogate the infection, with further ramifications by the elevation of vesicular pH, resulting in the inhibition of infection and spread of SARS CoV at clinically admissible concentrations.
Conclusion: Chloroquine is effective in preventing the spread of SARS CoV in cell culture. Favorable inhibition of virus spread was observed when the cells were either treated with chloroquine prior to or after SARS CoV infection. In addition, the indirect immunofluorescence assay described herein represents a simple and rapid method for screening SARS-CoV antiviral compounds.
There is More Evidence For HCQ Treating Covid-19:
Hydroxychloroquine or Chloroquine phosphate (HCQ) is a relatively safe, cheap, and effective drug that has been around since 1934. HCQ has been used in the past to treat malaria and lupus, but recent trials have shown it to be very effective at treating Covid-19 cases. It’s not just Dr. Fauci’s own study that makes a strong case for the use of the drug against this “pandemic” but other doctors and trials telling us the same. In a report from March 23, 2020, Dr. Vladimir Zelenko stated that he treated 150 Covid-19 cases with a 100% success rate. He then had a success rate of 100% treating 350 more people with Covid-19, for a total of 500 people. Dr. Zelenko used a combination of chloroquine, Azithromycin, and Zinc sulfate. After his successful trials, Dr. Zelensky put out an open call to other physicians in an article published on Globalresearch.ca. Here is an excerpt:
Dr. Vladimir (Zev) Zelenko:
Board Certified Family Practitioner, 501 Rt 208, Monroe, NY 10950
March 23, 2020
To all medical professionals around the world:
My name is Dr. Zev Zelenko and I practice medicine in Monroe, NY. For the last 16 years, I have cared for approximately 75% of the adult population of Kiryas Joel, which is a very close knit community of approximately 35,000 people in which the infection spread rapidly and unchecked prior to the imposition of social distancing.
As of today my team has tested approximately 200 people from this community for Covid-19, and 65% of the results have been positive. If extrapolated to the entire community, that means more than 20,000 people are infected at the present time. Of this group, I estimate that there are 1500 patients who are in the high-risk category (i.e. >60, immunocompromised, comorbidities, etc).
Given the urgency of the situation, I developed the following treatment protocol in the pre-hospital setting and have seen only positive results:
1. Any patient with shortness of breath regardless of age is treated.
2. Any patient in the high-risk category even with just mild symptoms is treated.
3. Young, healthy and low risk patients even with symptoms are not treated (unless their circumstances change and they fall into category 1 or 2).
My out-patient treatment regimen is as follows:
1. Hydroxychloroquine 200mg twice a day for 5 days
2. Azithromycin 500mg once a day for 5 days
More Studies Favoring HCQ To Treat Covid
In a recent article published on Breitbart News, author James Delingpole highlighted three other studies that showed similar results as Dr. Fauci’s published study and Dr. Zelenko’s trial. Here are a few excerpts: (Google docs blocked the source of the first study, so I didn’t include it in this article)
“Here is a second study by Jianjun Gao, Zhenxue Tian, Xu Yang”
Abstract: The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) virus is spreading rapidly, and scientists are endeavoring to discover drugs for its efficacious treatment in China. Chloroquine phosphate, an old drug for treatment of malaria, is shown to have apparent efficacy and acceptable safety against COVID-19 associated pneumonia in multicenter clinical trials conducted in China. The drug is recommended to be included in the next version of the Guidelines for the Prevention, Diagnosis, and Treatment of Pneumonia Caused by COVID-19 issued by the National Health Commission of the People’s Republic of China for treatment of COVID-19 infection in larger populations in the future.
“Here is the third, in the journal Nature. It’s titled ‘Remdesivir and chloroquine effectively inhibit the recently emerged novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) in vitro’
Extract: Chloroquine, a widely-used anti-malarial and autoimmune disease drug, has recently been reported as a potential broad-spectrum antiviral drug.8,9 Chloroquine is known to block virus infection by increasing endosomal pH required for virus/cell fusion, as well as interfering with the glycosylation of cellular receptors of SARS-CoV.10Our time-of-addition assay demonstrated that chloroquine functioned at both entry, and at post-entry stages of the 2019-nCoV infection in Vero E6 cells (Fig. 1c, d). Besides its antiviral activity, chloroquine has an immune-modulating activity, which may synergistically enhance its antiviral effect in vivo. Chloroquine is widely distributed in the whole body, including lung, after oral administration. The EC90 value of chloroquine against the 2019-nCoV in Vero E6 cells was 6.90 μM, which can be clinically achievable as demonstrated in the plasma of rheumatoid arthritis patients who received 500 mg administration.11Chloroquine is a cheap and a safe drug that has been used for more than 70 years and, therefore, it is potentially clinically applicable against the 2019-nCoV.
Letter to the Governor of Arizona from the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons:
Dear Governor Ducey:
This concerns your Executive Order forbidding prophylactic use of chloroquine (CQ) or hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) unless peer-reviewed evidence becomes available.
Attached and posted here (https://bit.ly/cqhcqresearch) is a summary of peer-reviewed evidence, indexed in PubMed, concerning the use of CQ and HCQ against coronavirus. We believe that there is clear and convincing evidence of benefit both pre-exposure and post-exposure.
In addition, Michael J. A. Robb, M.D., of Phoenix is compiling all reports as they come in. As of this date, the total number of reported patients treated with HCQ, with or without azithromycin and zinc, is 2,333. Of these, 2,137 or 91.6 percent improved clinically. There were 63 deaths, all but 11 in a single retrospective report from the Veterans Administration where the patients were severely ill.
Most of the data concerns use of HCQ for treatment, but one study included used the medication as prophylaxis with excellent results. Many nations, including Turkey and India, are protecting medical workers and contacts of infected persons prophylactically. According to worldometers.info, deaths per million persons from COVID-19 as of Apr 27 are 167 in the U.S., 33 in Turkey, and 0.6 in India.
Based on this evidence, we request that you rescind your Executive Orders impeding the use of CQ and HCQ and further order that administrative agencies not impose any requirements on the prescription of CQ, HCQ, azithromycin, or other drugs intended to treat or prevent coronavirus illness that do not apply equally to all approved medications that may be used off-label for any purpose.
Michael J. A. Robb, M.D.
President, Arizona State Chapter of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons

Why Are We Not Using HCQ More Widely
If you’re asking yourself, why doesn’t this picture add up, you’re not alone? It seems at the very least we could try using HCQ on a more widespread basis while waiting for a vaccine, right? This new position Dr. Fauci has adopted is interesting because, just several years ago, while working under the Obama administration, Dr. Fauci praised the use of HCQ against the MERS Coronavirus in 2013. What changed his position?
For our regular readers and people who know Dr. Fauci, this comes as no surprise. We recently published several articles that covered Dr. Fauci’s campaign to destroy Dr. Judy Mikovits because her findings conflicted with the medical establishments’ false narrative. It is no secret that Dr. Fauci is deeply entrenched in the medical bureaucracy, and his position is highly political by nature. Is this why he praised HCQ under the Obama administration and is now downplaying its efficacy while serving under President Trump? How did Dr. Fauci correctly predict that we would have a pandemic during the Trump presidency? Below is a short documentary made by Pandorasmouth that exposes the dubious career of Dr. Fauci, according to Dr. Mikovits. It’s only 26 minutes long, and I urge everyone to watch this film while it’s still up. Update 5.06.2020: YouTube removed the video as expected. Here is the link to the micro-doc on Bitchute.
