Bernie Sanders suggested that the casualties inflicted by the coronavirus pandemic could outpace some of the most drastic predictions during a press conference on Thursday, stating that it could be possible coronavirus would kill more people than servicemembers of the armed forces who were killed in World War II.
“We have to face the truth… And that is, that the number of casualties may actually be higher than what the armed forces experienced in World War II.”
To put matters into perspective, just over 400,000 Americans died fighting in World War II. The conflict’s casualties were only outpaced by the Civil War in total death count.
China- ground zero for the virus- has had over 133,000 diagnoses of the virus with almost 5,000 deaths as of Thursday. Deaths in China from the virus are already steadily declining, as they are in South Korea, the second-hardest hit country by the disease.
For the United States to suffer more casualties from the coronavirus than from World War II, our casualty and diagnosis rate would have to outpace that of China by an order of magnitude.
Certainly coronavirus is deadly serious. It could plausibly outpace the casualty rate of an event such as 9/11, for example. But stating that it’s going to take more lives than World War II combat casualties did outpaces even the most drastic predictions.
TRUMP WAS RIGHT: Medical Study Proves That Hydroxychloroquine Lowers COVID-19 Death Rate
Henry Ford Health has made these discoveries.
A study conducted by the Detroit-based Henry Ford Health System has determined that hydroxychloroquine treatment lowers the death rate for COVID-19 patients.
Officials with Henry Ford Health announced on Thursday that their study has shown that hydroxychloroquine “significantly” decreases the death rate of COVID-19 sufferers. They came to their conclusion after analyzing 2,541 patients who were confined in their hospital system from March 10 and May 2. They found that 13 percent of patients treated with hydroxychloroquine died while 26 percent of patients who did not receive the miracle drug died.
“As doctors and scientists, we look to the data for insight,” said Steven Kalkanis, CEO of the Henry Ford Medical Group. “And the data here is clear that there was a benefit to using the drug as a treatment for sick, hospitalized patients.”
There were also no heart-related problems that patients suffered from being treated with the drug in the study. Dr. Marcus Zervos noted that hydroxychloroquine is more effective when patients are treated with the drug early after their diagnosis with COVID-19.
“We attribute our findings that differ from other studies to early treatment, and part of a combination of interventions that were done in supportive care of patients, including careful cardiac monitoring,” said Zervos, who works as division head of infectious disease for Henry Ford Health. Zervos conducted the study with epidemiologist Dr. Samia Arshad.
“Our dosing also differed from other studies not showing a benefit of the drug,” he added. “We also found that using steroids early in the infection associated with a reduction in mortality.”
Zervos believes that the findings of this study could be crucial in stopping a potential second wave of COVID-19 infections from causing many more deaths.
Ever since President Trump suggested hydroxychloroquine as a remedy for COVID-19, there has been an institutional conspiracy to stop the treatment from being used to save the lives of the sick – as science and medicine have become extremely politicized.
Last month, Big League Politics reported on how a study about hydroxychloroquine’s fatal side effects was officially retracted after the data was shown to be erroneous:
The authors of a medical study published in medical journal The Lancet have been forced to retract their study claiming that hydroxychloroquine treatment had fatal side effects after several reports pointed out the faulty data.
The data was apparently used from a small Illinois firm called Surgisphere, owned by Dr. Sapan Desai. Desai had a sci-fi writer and a lewd model on staff for his company as the study was produced, and shockingly, it somehow produced inaccurate results.
The study was ultimately retracted after Dr. Mandeep R. Mehra, a Harvard Medical School professor who initially signed on to the study, tried to double check and verify the authenticity of the findings. Desai would not allow for the data to be re-analyzed, which eventually led to the retraction of the report.
“We launched an independent third-party peer review of Surgisphere with the consent of Sapan Desai to evaluate the origination of the database elements, to confirm the completeness of the database, and to replicate the analyses presented in the paper,” their statement said, according to the New York Times.
“Our independent peer reviewers informed us that Surgisphere would not transfer the full dataset, client contracts, and the full ISO audit report to their servers for analysis as such transfer would violate client agreements and confidentiality requirements,” the authors added.
The disgraced World Health Organization (WHO) reportedly stopped research into hydroxychloroquine as treatment for COVID-19 because of the findings in this dubious report, adding to the laundry list of public health failures the globalist body has been responsible for throughout the coronavirus pandemic.
President Donald Trump has been vindicated for suggesting hydroxychloroquine as a COVID-19 cure. His bold leadership has saved lives while many medical professionals have kept this lifesaving drug out of the hands of the sick.
