… NYU Langone Medical School is conducting a random trial with a $9.5 million grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
“Currently, there is no proven way to prevent COVID-19 after being exposed,” said Anna Bershteyn, an assistant professor with the Department of Population Health at NYU Langone and the study’s co-principal investigator.
“If hydroxychloroquine provides protection, then it could be an essential tool for fighting this pandemic. If it doesn’t, then people should avoid unnecessary risks from taking the drug.”
The drug has long been used to treat malaria, rheumatoid arthritis and lupus.
Its potential side effects include everything from fatal heart arrhythmia to vision loss, ear-ringing, vomiting, mood changes, skin rashes and hair loss.
Health officials are treading cautiously, saying they don’t anticipate hydroxychloroquine will be a “miracle drug” against the coronavirus — but the studies are worth the gamble.
In terms of the NYU clinical trial regarding prevention, researchers are enrolling 2,000 adult volunteers at six sites.
They are recruiting people who lack any COVID-19 symptoms but have been in close contact with others who have a confirmed or pending diagnosis.
On a random basis, the trial participants will receive either hydroxychloroquine or a placebo pill — vitamin C — every day for two weeks….
Well that didn’t take long did it? Already the PLANDEMIC has rebirthed the time honored tradition of fake placebos and fake “controls” which circumcision and vaccine researchers pioneered years ago. The $9.5 million figure gives you an idea of the kind of money these interests have to waste on entirely useless simulations of research in furtherance of their objectives. But obviously the anticipated payoff far exceeds the initial investment. That’s why gates is a billionaire. Disaster capitalists create their own realities and harvest the consequences. Just look at how he wrecked the personal computer industry in order to dominate it. Classical destabilization tactics which are now being applied to the world at large. But of course his fortune derived from his “genius” and hard work, not from his secret society mafia connections and his avowed malthusian eugenics beliefs.
One can already derive useful information just from the study design though (aside from the corruption and fakery of typical conflicted medical research): the gates foundation believes that vitamin c and hydroxychloroquine are about equally efficacious. This is good to know.
