Antimalarial drugs “Absolute Game-Changer”

Drug cocktail can be the difference between intubating a patient or not.

Dr. Stephen Smith, an infectious disease specialist treating coronavirus patients, said antimalarial drugs hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin are an “absolute game-changer” in treating the disease.

He said that when a patient goes into respiratory failure from COVID-19, the person is intubated (meaning a tube is put down the trachea) and then placed on a ventilator.

“No person who has received five days or more of the [drug] combination has been intubated,” he said. ”The chance of that occurring by chance…are .0000-something—it’s ridiculously low, no matter how you look at it.”

He added, “It’s an absolute game-changer. I think this data goes to really support the French data. I think this is the beginning of the end of the pandemic.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • That the combination of the antimalarial drug and the antibiotic will be, as the doctor said, the “game-changer” that signals the beginning of the end of the pandemic.
  • With thanksgiving for the wisdom God gives to researchers, laboratory technicians, and physicians treating patients, regarding the COVID-19 virus.
