20 persons previously diagnosed with the deadly coronavirus disease have been successfully treated and were discharged on Thursday, April 2, 2020 in Lagos. Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu made this announcement through his Twitter handle.
Majority of the news you will watch, listen to, and read concerning the dreaded Coronavirus pandemic ravaging the world entails fear, panic, and negative in nature. But, I bring you Hope, happiness, and good news!!!
Coronavirus pandemic is over. Do not be frightened, do not allow hypertension to kill you, and do not allow panic sets into your life because researchers have announced successful treatments of this virus.
The federal government has granted Lagos State permission to commence clinical trials of a combination of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) and Azithromycin for the treatment of coronavirus.
French researchers have announced that a combination of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) and Azithromycin was effective 100 per cent cure in treating Covid-19 patients.
According to Professor Didier Raoult, the director of the IHU of Marseille, treatment with hydroxychloroquine would reduce the load, and the results are even more promising with hydroxychloroquine and Azithromycin, an antibiotic effective against viruses. So, when you compare the percentage of positives with the combination of hydroxychloroquine and Azithromycin, you have an absolutely dramatic decrease in the number of positives.
In a related development, researchers at the University of Queensland, Australia, have said a combination of chloroquine and the HIV drug Kaletra led to the complete recovery of some of the first COVID-19 patients in Australia.
In the same manner, Russia has created a drug, based on the antimalarial Mefloquine, to treat patients suffering from the coronavirus, known as COVID-19.
The drug prevents virus replication in cells and as a result stops the inflammatory process caused by the virus, the Russian Federal Biomedical Agency said in a statement.
Veronika Skvortsova, the agency’s head, said Mefloquine has to be combined with antibiotics for the maximum effect, allowing increase in the concentration of antiviral agents in blood plasma and lungs.
In a related report, Dr. Vladimir Zelenko, a board-certified family practitioner in New York, has reportedly treated 699 COVID-19 patients in New York. He used these drugs: hydroxychloroquine, in combination with azithromycin (Z-Pak), an antibiotic to treat secondary infections, and zinc sulfate.
In an exclusive interview with former New York Mayor, Rudy Giuliani, Dr. Vladmir Zelenko shares the results of his latest study, which showed that out of his 699 patients treated, zero patients died, zero patients intubated, and four hospitalizations.
THE BBC reports that remdesivir, that could help treat coronavirus, is to be trialled on a small number of patients in England and Scotland. The drug is manufactured by the pharmaceutical company Gilead.
Remdesivir has been considered as a potential treatment for Ebola. It is designed to interfere with the way a virus reproduces, thereby stopping it from multiplying inside the body.
After first appearing in Wuhan, China, in December, coronavirus, officially known as COVID-19, has spread to at least 177 countries and regions, according to data compiled by U.S.-based Johns Hopkins University.
The data shows more than 618,000 cases have been reported worldwide, with the death toll surpassing 28,600, and over 135,700 recoveries.
