A Doctor from Los Angeles gave huge praise to hydroxychloroquine to treat COVID-19. On Sunday Dr. Anthony Cardillo, CEO of Mend Urgent Care gave testimony on ABC with host Jory Rand where he claimed after he gave severely ill patients the treatment they are practically symptom-free within 8-12 hours.
JORY RAND asked, “Ok, real quick. We have a little bit of time left. I do want to ask you about hydroxychloroquine, the president was pushing it pretty strong again yesterday. You said you have prescribed this, I want to talk to you about the effects you’re seeing and what it might do for people who take it normally outside of coronavirus and a possible shortage of medicine for them.”
Dr. Anthony Cardillo responded, “Exactly. What we’re finding clinically with our patients is that it really only works in conjunction with zinc. So the hydroxychloroquine opens the zinc channel, zinc goes into the cell, it then blocks the replication of the cellular machinery. So, it has to be used in conjunction with zinc. We are seeing some clinical responses in that regard. There are people that take it regularly for other disease processes, we have to be cautious and mindful that we don’t prescribe for patients who have COVID that are well. It really should be reserved for people that are really sick, in the hospital, or at home very sick that need that medication, otherwise, we’re going to blow through our supply for the patients that take it regularly for other disease processes.”
Rand asked, “But what you’re saying is, you’re prescribing it and it is working for COVID-19 patients?”
Dr. Anthony Cardillo responded, “Every patient I’ve prescribed it to has been very, very ill and within 8-12 hours they were basically symptom-free and so, clinically I am seeing a resolution that mirrors what we saw in the French study and some of the other studies worldwide. But what I am seeing is that people that are taking it alone, by itself, it’s not having efficacy.”
Democrats and the media have rejected science on this treatment in order to cause harm to President Trump, but it is clear science shows this treatment works. Every Democrat Governor that put a lock on this treatment should be tried with murder and receive the most severe death penalty because they caused unnecessary deaths.
