    Exactly! Many people all over the world have been using this drug for decades as it was considered safe and was thus approved by the FDA. But after Trump mentioned that this inexpensive medication may save people from the coronavirus, the drug suddenly became the unsafe and considered as the worst drug on earth. Tsk.

    I’m using it to. I agree with hansenberry. I have a family to feed and an elderly mom who lives with us. I can’t risk getting infected with virus. No one’s gonna take care of my family when I’m sick and we can’t even rely on the government to help us. Prevention is always better than cure.

    Exactly! I couldn’t agree more. The mechanism of action of this medication makes perfect sense to give it early before people get sick. It would be very effective in preventing the increase of people getting infected and spreading it. This medication keeps the virus from easily binding to our cells.

    I, myself believe that hydroxychloroquine not just decreases death rates for those who already have the virus, but most importantly, it should be used as a prevention. Some people claim that more studies are needed. What happens is that when people go to the hospital, they tell the patients to go home and come back when they can no longer breath.. Imagine?!
    Instead, what they should do is to do early intervention with the use of the said drug so that they wouldn’t have so many patients overcrowding the hospitals in the first place!
    What other disease do you know wherein the professional advice of the doctor is to treat you only when the condition is already worse and you need hospitalization?!

    Personally, I think this drug is effective. President Trump did say that he had been taking hydroxychloroquine / chloroquine as a preventative measure against Covid-19. Even President Jair Bolsonaro of Brazil took the medication together with azithromycin when he was infected with the virus.

    Some studies have shown that chloroquine have antiviral properties that are able to fight againsst SARS-Cov-2, which is the virus that is responsible for Covid-19. This drug works by modifying the chemical environment of the cell membranes in the human body. By doing this, the virus is prevented from going inside the cells and multiply.

    Studies have suggested that those who are treated with this medication experience a health benefit compared to those who weren’t. Patients who were given chloroquine experienced less severe covid-19 symptoms and recovered faster.

    So as we are still waiting for a vaccine to be made against the virus, Chloroquine would be our weapon to fight off Covid-19.

    Yes, the virus has made all of us scared for our life. We used to think that when you get infected, it would be the start of the end of our life. All we know was that it is deadly. But thanks to the experts, we were able to know that there is a chance for survival – that medicines used to treat other diseases in the past, could actually help us against our fight with Covid.

    I’m glad that there are existing medications available that could help combat the Covid virus. Many people gets infected everyday and vaccines are still a long wait. Knowing that we’re not totally helpless against the virus with the help of the hydroxychloroquine, somewhat helps calm my anxiousness.
