Novartis Chief Executive Vas Narasimhan has announced that there is preliminary evidence showing that “hydroxychloroquine kills the coronavirus.”
Narasimhan made the announcement to Swiss newspaper SonntagsZeitung on Sunday, as he was touting the ability of his pharmaceutical corporation to develop medicines to stop the pandemic. They have pledged to donate 130 million doses of hydroxychloroquine as soon as the medicine is approved for widespread use.
“Pre-clinical studies in animals as well as the first data from clinical studies show that hydroxychloroquine kills the coronavirus,” Narasimhan said to the newspaper.
“We’re working with Swiss hospitals on possible treatment protocols for the clinical use of the drug, but it’s too early to say anything definitively,” he added.
Narasimhan said that medicines such as the cancer drug Jakavi, multiple sclerosis drug Gilenya and fever drug Ilaris are being studied to see if they can be effective in treating coronavirus as well.
Several prominent liberal politicians have come out against hydroxychloroquine after President Donald Trump implored for it to be used as a treatment for individuals afflicted with coronavirus.
HYDROXYCHLOROQUINE & AZITHROMYCIN, taken together, have a real chance to be one of the biggest game changers in the history of medicine. The FDA has moved mountains – Thank You! Hopefully they will BOTH (H works better with A, International Journal of Antimicrobial Agents)…..

Democrats in blue states are already banning hydroxychloroquine, showing that they care more about scorning the President than they do helping the ill. Democratic Governors Steve Sisolak of Nevada, Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan and Andrew Cuomo of New York have already taken executive action to make it more difficult for coronavirus patients to be treated with hydroxychloroquine.
“There is no conclusive evidence at this time among COVID-19 experts or Nevada’s medical health advisory team, that the drugs provide treatment for COVID-19 patients,” Gov. Sisolak said last week.
“Michigan pharmacists may see an increased volume of prescriptions for hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine and should take special care to evaluate the prescriptions’ legitimacy,” wrote Gov. Whitmer’s Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs in a letter urging pharmacists to rat out doctors that prescribe hydroxychloroquine.
“It is also important to be mindful that licensed health professionals are required to report inappropriate prescribing practices,” they added.
Cuomo has already started to backtrack on his initial stance, softening on the use of hydroxychloroquine to treat coronavirus as his state has emerged as the epicenter of the virus in the U.S.
“On the drug therapy, Tuesday we’re going to start the hydroxychloroquine with the Zithromax. That’s the drug combination that the President has been talking about,” Cuomo announced during a Monday coronavirus press briefing.
If Narasimhan’s assessment about hydroxychloroquine is correct, there will be many Democrat partisans with egg on their faces in the near future.
Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds Refuses to Implement Widespread Mask Mandates and Bar Closures Over Newest COVID-19 Panic
Another Republican governor with courage.
Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds (R) is refusing to implement Draconian mask mandates and bar closures despite recent reports that cases are surging throughout the state.
According to a report in The Guardian, cases of COVID-19 are spiking throughout Iowa. Ames and Iowa City, two college towns, are reportedly being hit hard due to young people refusing to live their lives in fear.
“Community transmission continues to be high in rural and urban counties across Iowa, with increasing transmission in the major university towns,” a fear-mongering report from the White House coronavirus task force warned. “Mask mandates across the state must be in place to decrease transmission.”
Reynolds thus far is not bucking to political pressure that would lock down the state, crippling small businesses and making a mockery of the Bill of Rights and Constitution. She has only closed bars in six counties throughout the state while just “strongly encouraging” people to wear masks, arguing that they are “not a silver bullet.”
“I still believe it’s up to the governors in the various states to make those decisions,” Reynolds said in her refusal to let the feds usurp her authority.
Reynolds believes that it is “social activity among young adults” that is causing the virus to spread more quickly. Young people are the least likely to die from COVID-19, with new figures released by the CDC indicating that the vast majority of people who died from the virus had serious comorbidities. The facts, however, are not stopping the fear cultists from arguing for another shutdown.
“Our numbers are clearly terrifying,” said University of Iowa associate professor Naomi Greyser to CNN. “They’re really scary and my students are scared.” Greyser and other academics hope to get paid by the taxpayer for not doing their jobs this school year because of COVID-19.
Republican U.S. Sen. Joni Ernst of Iowa is casting doubt on the numbers that are being reported by medical professionals.
“These healthcare providers and others are reimbursed at a higher rate if Covid is tied to it, so what do you think they’re doing?” Ernst said.
Although the Iowa Medical Society called Ernst’s comments “incredibly disappointing,” there have been many reports of case numbers being exaggerated or falsified throughout the country, as Big League Politics has noted:
Many states are inflating their reports of COVID-19 cases by counting positive antibody tests among those who have the illness, according to a report from Nicole Saphier, M.D…
This has reportedly resulted in people being counted twice due to testing positive for COVID-19 and then testing positive for having antibodies.
Making the situation even more of a cluster, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have claimed that antibody tests are wrong at least half of the time.
“Serologic test results should not be used to make decisions about grouping persons residing in or being admitted to congregate settings, such as schools, dormitories, or correctional facilities,” the CDC wrote in their guidelines.
“Serologic test results should not be used to make decisions about returning persons to the workplace,” they continued.
“In most of the country, including areas that have been heavily impacted, the prevalence of SARS-CoV-2 antibody is expected to be low, ranging from less than 5% to 25%, so that testing at this point might result in relatively more false positive results and fewer false-negative results,” the CDC determined.
The Republicans of Iowa are showing the backbone that is needed to prevented America from permanently losing all of her liberties due to COVID-19 mass hysteria.
