Do Not Fear
At a time where we are inundated with news that instills more fear than answers, we have some hope that is emerging from the front lines.
Although it might not be easy not to fear, focus your mind and activities on positive things. Be selective in the types of news you engage in, because much of the news media is not reporting and bringing hope, but rides on the wave of sensationalism to “fight” for your views.

In another promising story, a board-certified family practitioner in New York, showed that out of his 699 patients treated, zero patients died, zero patients had to be intubated, and four were hospitalized.
Dr. Vladimir Zelenko treated patients with a “cocktail of drugs” consisting of hydroxychloroquine, in combination with azithromycin, an antibiotic to treat secondary infections, and zinc sulfate. Dr. Zelenko said he saw the symptom of shortness of breath resolved within four to six hours after treatment.
Dr. Zelenko said the whole treatment costs only $20 over a period of 5 days with 100% success.
He defines success as “Not to die.”
A French Study
The much-discussed Hydroxychloroquine now has a French study where 80 coronavirus patients in a hospital were given Hydroxychloroquine along with Azithromycin (an antibiotic) and 79 survived.
In 8 days, 93% had no virus left in the body.
In 80 in-patients receiving a combination of hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin, the team found a clinical improvement in all but one 86 year-old patient who died, and one 74-year old patient who is still in intensive care unit.
The team also found that, by administering hydroxychloroquine combined with azithromycin, they were able to observe an improvement in all cases, except in one patient who arrived with an advanced form, who was over the age of 86, and in whom the evolution was irreversible, according to a new paper published in IHU Méditerranée Infection.
