Doctors have expressed concern with Dr. Fauci for his lack of support for the use of hydroxychloroquine as a treatment of COVID-19. They note the following: Physicians worldwide discovered that high-risk patients can be treated successfully as an outpatient, within the first 5 to 7 days of the onset of symptoms, with a “cocktail” consisting of hydroxychloroquine, zinc, and azithromycin (or doxycycline). Multiple scholarly contributions to the literature detail the efficacy of the hydroxychloroquine-based combination treatment.
COVID-19 is a disease that should be taken seriously, but the recent spike in cases shouldn't cause alarm, contends a former department head at Stanford University Medical Center.
Dr. Scott Atlas, now a senior fellow at Stanford's Hoover Institution, said in a Fox News interview that what matters is not how many coronavirus cases there are, but "who gets the cases. "The cases themselves should not be and were never the focus. It's only the tragic consequences of the cases. When we look at the cases in every state, the overwhelming majority are younger and healthier people," he said. "We realize we have to wait to have the story play out here, but right now, the cases have been going up for three weeks and we have no increase [in deaths]," he told Trace Gallagher on Monday. In fact, we have a decrease in death rates. You know, it doesn't matter if you get the illness if you're going to fully recover and be fine from it," said Atlas, the former chief of neuroradiology at the Stanford Medical Center.
"That is what people must understand. For younger healthier people, there's not a higher risk from this disease at all."
Please note that the major news networks are only reporting an INCREASE IN NEW CORONAVIRUS CASES, and not the DECREASE in fatalities.
So why the focus on more COVID-19 cases and fewer deaths? Simple. There are MORE tests being conducted today than previous.
The big takeaway here is that it seems likely COVID-!9 has peaked and is now on the downward side, but it is just not what many governors, mayors and politicians want to hear. If it has peaked, they will be forced to back off on their mandates and let things normalize. Sadly, for too many politicians, that is just not something they seem to want.

Masks Do Not Prevent a Person From Getting Covid-19

Not As Deadly As Ebola
The Covid-19 is nothing like as dangerous as diseases such as Ebola, which kills up to two thirds of those who catch it, but doctors remain unsure of its medical severity. In Wuhan – the epicentre of the Covid-19 outbreak – the current death rate is between two and four per cent, but it is around 0.7 per cent outside the city, according to the World Health Organisation (WHO).
