Among our most fundamental and sacred rights is the right to medical freedom. But in the curious case of hydroxychloroquine, it seems that the government, media, and pharmaceutical industry have been fighting tooth and nail to make the drug unavailable – despite overwhelming evidence that it can prevent and treat COVID-19.
In Ohio, however, a ban on hydroxychloroquine is being reversed. Thanks to the strong leadership of governor Mike DeWine, the State of Ohio Board of Pharmacy has reversed a rule that would prohibit the sale of hydroxychloroquine for the treatment or prevention of coronavirus.
It could mean the difference between life and death for high-risk patients.
The Hydroxychloroquine Controversy
Starting in August, pharmacies, clinics and other medical institutions were to be prohibited from dispensing or selling the drugs to treat COVID-19, according to regulations issued by the State of Ohio Board of Pharmacy. They could still be used in clinical trials, said Cameron McNamee, director of policy and communications for the board.
Proponents of the ban (which has been instituted in other states across the nation) insist that HCQ is not an effective treatment for COVID-19, citing potential side effects as the reason for the ban. Under the regulation, pharmacists in Ohio found to be selling or dispensing the drug to treat COVID-19 could have faced disciplinary action ranging anywhere from a warning or fine to a temporary suspension of their license.
But Governor DeWine has a unique perspective on the issue. “I agree with the statement from Dr. Steven Hahn, Commissioner of the [Food and Drug Administration], that the decision about prescribing hydroxychloroquine to treat COVID-19 should be between a doctor and a patient,” the governor said in a statement via Twitter. “The Ohio Board of Pharmacy and @ohiomedboard should revisit the issue, listen to the best medical science, and open the process up for comment and testimony from experts.”
And he’s exactly right: medical interventions are a personal decision in which the government has absolutely no business meddling. This is especially encouraging given the extremely political (and at times inexplicable) war that has been fought around the malaria drug. The controversy became mainstream after President Trump announced in May that he was using hydroxychloroquine as a preventative measure to ward off the novel coronavirus.
The Hydroxychloroquine Timeline
Since then, there have been conflicting reports and studies on the efficacy and risk of using HCQ (along with zinc and Zithromax) to prevent or treat COVID-19. On May 7, a study became available in the The New England Journal of Medicine showing COVID-19 patients who were treated with hydroxychloroquine did not experience lower risk of death compared to coronavirus patients who received other treatments.
Later that month, Anthony Fauci discredited the drug in an interview on CNN, saying, “The scientific data is really quite evident now about the lack of efficacy for it.” One day later, research published in The Lancet showed that cancer patients with COVID-19 who received hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin experienced a risk of death 2.89 times greater within 30 days than those who did not receive the drugs.
However, just a few days after the study was released, Richard Horton, editor of The Lancet, tweeted about the validity of the study the medical journal published claiming a higher risk of death for patients who received hydroxychloroquine. “Serious questions have been raised about the reliability of the findings reported in this paper,” he said.
That same day, the Arizona-based Association of American Physicians and Surgeons sued the US Department of Health and Human Services for preventing physicians from prescribing hydroxychloroquine as a COVID-19 preventative. Two days later, on June 4th, The Lancet retracted the study it published May 22 that claimed hydroxychloroquine was linked to higher mortality rates in COVID-19 patients.
On the same day, The New England Journal of Medicine retracted a separate study showing that blood pressure medications were safe to take for COVID-19 patients. Both studies used data from analytics company Surgispher, which refused to share its raw data with study authors or a third-party auditor after questions about its accuracy arose.
On July 2nd, the International Journal of Infectious Diseases published a study conducted by researchers at Detroit-based Henry Ford Health System that claimed COVID-19 patients who received a small dose of hydroxychloroquine within the first two days of their hospital stay were more likely to survive.
On July 27th, a group of frontline doctors gathered on the steps of the Supreme Court to share their success in treating COVID-19 patients with HCQ. Dr. Stella Immanuel, who currently runs a practice in Houston, says that she has treated over 350 patients with the drug with zero fatalities. Other doctors shared their belief that masks are ineffective and that children are not susceptible and should return to school in the fall.
She cited a study which had recently been published in the American Journal of Emergency Medicine evaluating if hiccups were a symptom of COVID-19. In the study, patients who tested positive for COVID-19 were treated with hydroxychloroquine. The use of HCQ in this study implies its efficacy in treating the disease itself, Immanuel pointed out.
Within hours, the video had been completely deleted or covered with a “fake news” label by virtually every social media platform. Major news outlets scrambled to discredit the doctors, focusing on Dr. Immanuel’s unconventional religious beliefs as proof that her observation must not be true.
(Dr. Immanuel continues to practice as a licenced primary care physician in good standing with the Texas Medical Board, and there is no evidence that her experience in treating patients with hydroxychloroquine is untrue.)
On July 29th, Ohio’s board of pharmacy prohibited pharmacists from dispensing or selling hydroxychloroquine to treat COVID-19. After a request from Governor DeWine just a day later, the state’s board of pharmacy reversed its ban on hydroxychloroquine for use in COVID-19 patients and said it will reexamine the issue.
Politics vs Medicine
On August 3rd, two Henry Ford Health System executives wrote in an open letter that the persisting political climate has made any objective discussion about hydroxychloroquine “impossible.” The following is an excerpt from that letter:
“The most well-accepted and definitive method to determine the efficacy of a treatment is a double-blind, randomized clinical trial. However, this type of study takes a long time to design, execute and analyze. Therefore, a whole scientific field exists in which scientists examine how a drug is working in the real world to get as best an answer as they can as soon as possible. These types of studies can be done much more rapidly with data that is already available, usually from medical records.
Like all observational research, these studies are very difficult to analyze and can never completely account for the biases inherent in how doctors make different decisions to treat different patients. Furthermore, it is not unusual that results from such studies vary in different populations and at different times, and no one study can ever be considered all by itself.
Our promising Henry Ford treatment study should be considered as another important contribution to the other studies of hydroxychloroquine that describes what the authors found in our patient population. We – along with all doctors and scientists – eagerly support the need for randomized clinical trials.
We also want to point out that scientific debate is a common occurrence with almost every published study. In part, this is what fuels the advancement of knowledge – challenging one another on our assumptions, conclusions and applications to get to a better place for the patients we collectively serve. You can read the original study here and the senior author’s letter to the editor here.
Unfortunately, the political climate that has persisted has made any objective discussion about this drug impossible, and we are deeply saddened by this turn of events. Our goal as scientists has solely been to report validated findings and allow the science to speak for itself, regardless of political considerations. To that end, we have made the heartfelt decision to have no further comment about this outside the medical community – staying focused on our core mission in the interest of our patients, our community, and our commitment to clinical and academic integrity.”
The politicizing of potentially life-saving treatments, along with the overreach of our government in banning or mandating these interventions, is the single greatest issue in American medicine today. This issue is much bigger than the simple question of “does hydroxychloroquine work?”
It’s a matter of fundamental medical freedom and bodily autonomy. Sadly, we are often at the mercy of our leaders in government to protect us from this kind of medical tyranny. Fortunately, there are still some leaders that will answer the call to protect our liberty – even in the face of heavy opposition.
Governor Mike DeWine is one of those heroes. “The Board of Pharmacy and the State Medical Board of Ohio should revisit the issue, listen to the best medical science, and open the process up for comment and testimony from experts,” DeWine said in a prepared statement.
It is IMPERATIVE that we support leaders on either side of the aisle who are willing to stand up for our freedoms and protect doctors who work with patients instead of against them. Please take a moment to join our movement today, and discover how you can affect REAL CHANGE in the fight against medical tyranny.
Sue Sherrill says
Big Pharma and those with a commer¢ial intere$t in selling expensive drugs like Dr. Fauci should be masked and handcuffed rather than being in any advisory role. Recommending Remdesivir over HCQ is laughable! #FireFauci
Melodie VanderWal says
Would that the same scrutinizing practices be used when ‘designing’ vaccines!
There seem to be enough doctors with testimonials of successfully treating patients with a certain dosage Of the HCQ and Antibiotic that would render this virus not deadly to the majority of the population and less need for a vaccine and certainly eradicate the need to have everyone masked and isolated and locked.down. Follow the money. This virus has been weaponized for political and financial gains. People who tested positive have been isolated and quarantined for 14 days with no treatment available. When all could have been treated when first got symptoms and most likely not gotten to the point of needing the hospital And total isolation. Think of all the older populations in nursing homes and living centers still forced to isolate from families and those who had to die alone. It’s shameful and unnecessary. Let the doctors give the treatment. The governors have the deaths of many on their heads.
Nancy Eble says
It is shameful that a once highly respected MD is going against the hippocratic oath to do no harm. Truly shameful, people need to wake up and wise up to the scam. HCL is the oldest and safest anti-malarial and used to be used among thousands of travelers daily -it is not dangerous!
John Rivas says
I agree, and it is between the patient and the doctor choice.
Our US Constitution should protect our medical freedom & the right to try.
The Anderson Family says
Please do not give any props to the Ohio governor! His draconian measures have had us on lockdown, curfewed, masked (and schools still closed) since March. Dewine continues to say we cannot remove our masks until there is a VACCINE.
Dewine also illegally moved our March elections. He is being sued by hundreds of companies including Cedar Point and King’s Island.
I cannot take my child to get a haircut or to get their teeth cleaned because the parent of a MINOR must stay in their car and leave their children in the hands of strangers.
Dewine reversed the HCQ ban simply to look good (he appointed the board that made the ban). He is NO hero to freedom.
Dewine is testing waste water at colleges for COVID and now has FEMA camps set up to ‘house’ college students where the waste water is positive.
Dewine in NO WAY is for medical freedom. This article should be retracted.
Paula Griffiths says
Some of the best scientists in the world have come forward as early as March 2020 cited Hydroxychloroquine as an effective drug for Covid
Along with preventative treatments of vit c/ vit d/ zinc.
It is time the people stand together and overthrow this Rockefeller culture where our government and pharmaceutical companies are basically allowed to control our health and act no better than the mafia!
It should be about saving lives not lining the likes of Tony Fauci pocket.
Shame on him!
Actually, I am rather shocked (pleasantly so) to see DeWine anywhere near the right side of an issue. Might be time to check hell for ice?
Absolutely, I agree that the use of a medication or treatment is between the doctor and patient to determine the best method. Get the politics and government out of the doctors office and let doctors continue to heal their patients!!! I want my doctor to have full access to Hydroxchloquine !!!!!!!!
P Robinson says
You must add zinc and vitamin C. with it. and they are closing down all of the homeopathic companies as we speak. Its truly a war on Natural medician.
Dave Zwicker says
I am of the same logical thought process. I agree 100%!
Hydroxychloroquine has been proven to work. The American Frontline Doctors who came forward with testimonials proving patients were cured of COVID. Dr. Harvey Risch has multiple studies that prove that hydroxychloroquine works too.
Many doctors have come forward proving this medication works in the beginning stages of COVID. Unfortunately, they are being silenced. Their reputation and profession are on-the-line. This needs to stop. Big Pharma is over-reaching into our liberties. I don’t want a vaccine that could potentially create more harm then good.
I choose medical freedom to make my choice.
I’m personally concerned about the validity of the information on Hydroxychloroquine from a medical perspective. Too much conflicting points of view. I would not take it because I believe its too risky. But if dying, I might think differently about it if told it had potential for saving my life. I don’t believe the president took this medication either. The doctor who supposedly treated 300 patients in Houston, TX should support her claims with information directly from those patients. Thst would really give everyone a place to start open discussions about this drug as a treatment protocol fir Covid 19…i think with 6 million cases in the USA and counting we need to start with legitimate and practical case studies.
It is overdue for a state leader to step up and stand against this Plandemic. I applaud Governor DeWine for having the courage and wisdom to allow his citizens and doctors to make their own decisions about their care recognizing that they are competent to make those decisions.
I hope ALL Governors will follow his lead.
Karen Redekop says
Government intervention must be fought by good people like this Governor of Ohio. It is very apparent that both countries Canada and the US are moving towards more government control.
Governments are corrupt and most likely influenced by Big Pharma. Please … what happened to just plain common sense ? If the drug works use it. If the patient has side effects stop it. If it’s the only drug we have and the medical profession has experienced success government has no right to intervene.
What happened to common sense ?
Dr. M. E. Henderson says
This was a good move on the part of Governor DeWine. Now, the mask mandate, which is not supported by good science, needs to be lifted. i fight with what’s inexpensive and develop immunity. Then we will be able to see everything (including each other’s smiles) more clearly without politics. This will help with everyone’s mental health also.
Rev.Sheila Crawford says
Kudos that was the right choice!!
Philip Wilder says
Kudos to Mr DeWine. It’s about time he did something positive. It is also quite ironical given his shameful record of tyrannical mandates, extreme over reach of his authority, complete disdain for his citizens, continued illegal declarations of an emergency and violating his sworn oath of office to defend constitutionally protected rights.
Perhaps he is seeing the light at the end of the tunnel and it doesn’t look good for his future.
V Bryant says
They know this drug works for COVID.That’s why they tried to bury the video of those doctors at the Supreme Court. If it’s worked for 350 people sound like it might be the answer. You don’t get lucky 350 times. Fauci knows, the world health organization knows and the owner of the W.H.O. (Bill Gates) knows. They don’t want people to get better, they can’t patent hydroxychloroquine. They want to crash the economy, remove Trump from office, and force all of us to take a vaccine that bill gates has the patent too. This is all planned. They should be charged with Treason and 100,000 counts of murder.
Hallelujah! It seems the current governor has more sense than John Kasich! Yes, this drug has been used safely for 65 years. It is currently used in third world countries, where it is sold over-the-counter for malaria, and it is used here by Rx for lupus and rheumatoid arthritis. These patients are on the drug for a long time-at the therapeutic dosage, and suffer no ill effects. For the FDA to intimidate MDs to not order it as an off label treatment for covid (preventative or early in the course of contracting covid-to prevent hospitalization) is lunacy. Drugs are prescribed off-label every day of the week. The fact is, this became political because Trump recommended it. The fact is also that the patients the FDA cites as having no effect, or ill effect from HCQ were critically ill, on ventilators, in full blown ARDS with cytokine storm. And they gave MASSIVE doses of the drug-over 10 x the recommended 200 mg dosage. ANY drug you give over 10 x the dose will have ill effects-it’s called an overdose and the physicians doing it know that. Fauci knows that.
I am a retired ICU nurse and I have never been so embarrassed by some in the medical community through this insane argument over HCQ, which has become a political football. Kudos to the many physicians who have bravely come forward and bucked the system, in an attempt to save patient lives.
Thousands of patients have died needlessly because of Fauci & the FDA’s adamant campaigning against HCQ. I will NEVER, NEVER trust anything the FDA says again. I suspect that Fauci & his minions are invested heavily in the warp-speed vaccine effort and stand to make millions off that-just my opinion. Having an inexpensive safe drug to nip covid in the bud would undermine their coveted profits. And they should ALL be ashamed of themselves.
rameela patel says
since when did patients have full rights to treatment. the govt invades every corner of our life. parents cant make decisions on whether to vaccinate their children or not when we have proof that several childhood vacciniations dont work. women, even impoverished victims of rape cannot decide to have an abortion . the conequences of bad care and adoption are disastrius. go figure !!
that said, i doubt that a doctor will get prosecuted by the govt for treating a patient with hcq
Tim Weiss says
One thing missing from this article is the video that surfaced from 2005 of Dr. Fauci unequivocally stating the benefits of Hydroxychloroquine in the treatment of ALL coronaviruses.
Please do not praise Mike Dewine. It is not a coincidence that he is reversing his decision to reverse HIS ban on HCQ just days after Ohio Stands Up filed a suit against the ODH and the governer in federal court.
It has been hell for anyone standing up for health freedom and personal responsibility here in Ohio since this all started, thanks to Dewine and Amy Acton and their lack of accountability and transparency in government mandates and absurd metrics for color-coding the state and keeping it gripped in fear.
He holds his finger up to the wind to see which way it’s blowing and then makes his decisions based on what will make him look good, not any basis in science, proper reporting/modeling/graphing.
This is the same man who has said “no green until a vaccine” (referring to his color-coding of the “spread” of the virus in Ohio) and that the endgame is not to flatten the curve or protect the medical field but to ensure that no one gets sick. At all. He has actually said this when asked in a press conference.
He is all about being afraid of “what if”, not looking honestly at “what is”. Please do not paint him as a hero.
Derek Lapworth says
Yes the doctor patient relationship is sacrosanct,they have the free choice
It’s a crime to allow Doctors to restrict Hydroxychloroquine to patients and Fauci should be sued by every patient that has had the drug denied to then. It’s between the doctor and patient not the CDC and Dr Fauci and their political agenda to basically give needed patients Hydroxychloroquine that their Doctor prescribes… make CDC and Dr Fauci accountable for something. If my loved one died and they denied the drug then the basically killed them.
sharon a says
Yes, please keep fighting for our medical freedom. Yes, give credit where credit is due,
but please do not call our Governor in a Ohio a “hero”!
As my ex husband use to say, “a blind hog finds an acorn once in awhile”.
You may have noticed, I said “ex”. Everyone spoke well of him also, but I knew differently.
I hope HCQ works for many people.
I am not a good recipient of that medicine because of the one and only Flu shot that I took twenty plus years ago for a job.
That flu shot sent me into cardiac arrest and I still have heart repercussions to this day. Blessings!
Does anyone know what is the SAFE DOSE for HCQ for COVID 19? I’ve read (I can’t remember where) that doctors gave too-high doses and their patients died. I’ve read that the right dose is one pill per week. That seems strange. Any doctors here who know about this dosing?
I agree with all of it!!!!
Freedom of decision is the most important thing I can think of !!!!!
If we are not standing up now against this disgusting political agenda, we will be doomed !!!!!!!!
It is completely clear that human lives just used as toys for this political tug-of-war !!!!!
It is clear that what’s happening here is the divide and conquer phenomenon !!!!
We should all
join the movement for freedom !!!!!!!
Cherry Misra says
There have been reports that 3 studies of hydroxchloroquin were being done , involving many countries – in which FOUR times the safe dose of hydroxychloroquin were being used on corona patients. Has this been verified by anyone and if true, who was the director of those studies? .
Dave Noble says
It is about time that hydroxychloroquine is made available. Thousands have died because nearly all of the less expensive treatments have been discredited by the CDC and the FDA. My own doctor used it to save a patients life. My Drug Store stated that I would have to first test positive to allow them to fill a prescription for hydroxychloroquine. At that time the test results were taking 2 weeks. I could have been a corpse before I got it. I ordered mine from the UK and Customs blocked the shipment twice. I finally got it after I placed a 3rd order. I am saving it for when or if I need it. I coordinated this with my doctor and have Zinc and azithromycin on hand also.
Timothy Zacharek says
HCQ seems a whole lot more safe than a Vaccine! There is no evidence in 65 years of using HCQ for other diseases having problems with HCQ. Nothing like Autism, deformed babies, or all the other side effects from Vaccines which may have poisons in them, like heavy metal, fermeldahyde, mercury. And to top off the risks of Vaccines, pharma Cos. are not responsible for any side effects. So just take it at your own risk. Not to mention all the other Countries using HCQ having much lower death rates than America. It should be sold over the counter.
While the main stream media hides the facts about HCQ. Google has removed much about HCQ in the last 7 months, as did YouTube and Face Book. The papers on HCQ just don’t exist anymore. Is the media controling us for medical reasons or political? Or is it a Big Business like Big Pharma controlling everything? Someone needs to find out. But expert Doctors, Epidemioligists, PhD’s seem to be for it. You can find lots more on D.Tube.
lee walker says
Keep up the fight 💪
It is encouraging to see a politician actually stand up for our individual medical freedom. This is one of our most sacred rights. The thing that gave America greatness in the first place is a free market economy, and this applies to the medical field as well, in which scientists and doctors are free to pursue and discover the best possible treatment for any given illness. The present political war is ruthlessly toying with the health and wellness of every single person in the country, and ultimately, every person in the world. If we continue to allow this, we will abdicate every other right we have and eventually concede to living under collective domination.
Ronald Bailey says
My 89 year-old mother who is in a nursing home was treated with hydroxy drug, as water all the residents who tested positive. All the residents recovered. Mother had very little symptoms.
“Thanks to the strong leadership of governor Mike DeWine…”
Strong leadership, huh? Then, why is DeWine also setting up FEMA camps to forcibly “Quarantine” people for weeks/months/until murdered??
Love you guys, TnC, but FEMA camps = Civil War, for me. HcQ is a proven-safe med, n clearly political. Attempting to force whomever they please into FEMA camps, is a far bigger story, IMHO.
Alan Childs says
That’s absolutely right, unfortunately big pharma can’t make money from people becoming fit, the more crap they put in your body makes them more money, especially now they can’t be held responsible and the likes of WHO earning on the backs of big pharma, but you are right in what you say.
Demetrios Papadopoulos, MD says
We desperately need to find out if Hydroxychloroquine is effective when used early in the course of Covid-19. Politics is preventing this from happening.
anthony Cavallo says
Fauci Gates should be in jail BIG Pharm is way way way worse than ISIS
Rebecca Meilinger says
It is crucial at this time to have medical freedom when the majority of the Doctors are ruled by Big Pharma. For the few and far between upstanding Doctors who put their patients first we applaud you. There is no secret how Big Pharma rules their evil unethical virtues just look at what has transpired with the Wuhan lab, Fauci and Bill Gates intentionally releasing the COVID 19 virus. Of course Fauci doesn’t want Hydroxychloroquine used because it’s a known cure for COVID 19, his whole agenda is to get his vaccine out.
SHARLENE O'DONNELL DIXON says
HONORABLE GOVERNOR MIKE DEWINE: Hats off to you sir, it is about time people started stepping up. The money powers are glad we relented to wearing masks, first sign of win for them to accomplish what they have planned. To say Remdesivir is better, when it is more costly in the thousands of dollars and not effective. Fauci should be fired.
Hydroxychloroquine has had many studies, and only dangerous in high amounts.
Anything that is good toward COVID has been silently removed. This country is in worse shape than ever, it is time for people to wake up to what is being done and act before it is too late. The censorship is booming on anything positive, only vaccine info allowed. And a new vaccine in less than a year, when it should take years to make safely. When there are so many different ways to combat this COVID, and one doctor who is doing a phenomenal job is being threatened, no longer allowed to do postings, but has been doing this for many years, and by second treatment people are 70% better, than third treatment fine, and cost is low, after being sent home from the hospital to die. Let the knowledge of these doctors come out. STOP THE CENSORSHIP OF ANYTHING POSITIVE! That is the second thing they have accomplished, censorship. When we should be commanding this doctor with his easy, inexpensive way to improve the worse with COVID.
Ken Raymond says
There is no justification for politicians to interfere with a doctor – patient relationship. This whole situation is outrageous and the political agenda has become obvious. Dems and RINOs have been exposed. Let HCQ be freely distributed as it obviously works well, especially in cytokine storms. It will be particularly needed if a Covid vaccine is forced upon us.
It has to be a choice between the patients and their doctors to prescribe. It is also the patients’ right to gain access to what is available to help fight for their lives unless those politicians assume the responsibility and consequences of denying their access. It is our lives not theirs. Those morons!
Thank you So much for sharing this information..
I hope more of the governor’s can stand up , in support of their people and him.
We are truly in a war for freedom. Thank you for all you do.
Michele Arnold says
I find it interesting that in the letter from the Henry Ford Health System they are so interested in “staying focused on our core mission in the interest of our patients, our community, and our commitment to clinical and academic integrity.”, yet are not worried about forcing a vaccine with pathetically little testing and time trialling on the public! For shame!
Julia Pierce says
I agree with C. Fisher. – If used at the beginning of Covid, and in small doses, it should be used if both Dr. & patient agree. I have read from other Doctors that it does need to be used at the beginning to be effective.
Sue B. says
It is becoming increasingly obvious that if WE, THE PEOPLE, do not stand up for medical freedom and bodily autonomy for ourselves and our children, we WILL become the latest victims of a deliberate move to support the pharmaceutical companies ABOVE the people of our nation. It is clearly a circular and deliberate move to give additional protection to the “almighty pharmaceutical companies” so that they can continue to buy off our politicians so that they can continue to give protection …………………
How frightening. How sad. How disgusting. HOW UNAMERICAN !!!! Our forefathers must be rolling over and over in their graves.
Hallelujah and praise God that somebody has the strength and fortitude to stand up to Fauci. Now we need a movement to declare that mandatory vaccinations for everybody is illegal. If someone really wants a vaccination – that’s their personal choice but it cannot be made legal to make it mandatory just because that’s what Bill Gates wants. There is not even a safe vaccination on the market yet.
Carrie Kelly says
It should be made available from our GP.
ED MOSS says
TRUMP GOT THIS PART RIGHT , HCQ SHOULD BE THE FIRST LINE OF DEFENCE .
DeWine signed an order that creates FEMA camps for asymptomatic COVID people and any other people the state deems “high-risk” or in need of quarantine. Look it up. It’s on the Ohio gov website. This guy is a tool for big pharmaceutical and China.
HCQ is safe and effective. The only reason it’s being banned is because of the big pharma monopoly and regulatory capture of the FDA, CDC, and other agencies within our government. Big pharma doesn’t want a cure, they want to sell expensive Remdesivir and mandate vaccines without liability.
Thank God that one of our 50 governors has finally decided that federal medical overreach must come to an end in his state. Our prayer is that many more will follow suit and end Dr. Fauci’s, AMA’s, and FDA’s tyrannical hold on our leaders.
Far too many members of our national and state congresses are bought and sold by big pharma and have been for decades.
These pharmaceutical company executives and our leaders who have suppressed the sale of efficacious drugs, are all guilty of mass murder, by interfering with Dr. patient/relations.
Worldwide, and in multiple cases, hydroxychloroquine has proved to be highly effective both as a prophylactic, and as an effective treatment in all stages of the China Virus.
It is high time that American Citizens rise up and return control of our governments, Local, state, and federal, to the people!
Obviously and certainly the denigration of HCQ is the result of main stream media’s goal of defeating President Trump. This is certainly crossing the line, and borders on sedition. The political system in this country has reached a new low. It’s beyond any sane persons rationale that putting people’s lives in danger for a political agenda.
Donald Ghiata says
We have medical Tyrany in the USA on a large scale. Changing the subject a little…cancer is a vitamin and mineral deficiency disease as are many diseases , so the cure would be a huge change in diet. Poor diets are the main cause of cancer , so it follows that a good diet would help cure. Gerson therapy ( Google it ) uses food ( fruits and veggies ) as medicine , not any drugs at all. So is Gerson therapy quackery ? If Gerson therapy is quackery ( it’s NOT ) , then fruits and veggies sold in grocery stores are quackery. That is what the opponents of Gerson Therapy are saying in a round about way. The opponents of Gerson therapy are liars. Gerson therapy has cured thousands of people of cancer but our corrupt government in the USA has outlawed it….. SO MUCH FOR MEDICAL FREEDOM IN THE USA. WE HAVE ALMOST NO MEDICAL FREEDOM AT ALL IN THE USA. WATCH CHARLOTTE GERSON ON YOUTUBE.
B. Hubbard says
The studies and doctors all miss the point. Hydroxychloroquine is a carrier to help get zinc into the cells. It’s the zinc that destroys the RNA from Covid. Better non-toxic carriers would are quercetin and green tea extract. Why do you think Cuba has such a low mortality and infection rate? The integrative medicine practiced there includes zinc and homeopathic zinc.
rachel moore says
We, as free people, did not consent to giving certain powers to the government. Lockdowns and mask to shield us from infection. We did not authorize the government to shield us from infection. They do not want Doctors to use hydroxychloroquine that has been successful for many patients, but they want to stab us all with a needle to inject us w/ unsafe heavy metals, toxic chemicals, animal RNA and DNA, aborted fetal tissue and no proof that it will keep us from the virus. More likely kill us. They have to make covid pandemic look worse than it really is so they can convince the public to get on board w/the vaccine. Dr Fauci, Bill Gates are evil, criminal, liars not to be trusted. (Satan is the father of lies) Big pharma has a history of horrendous mistakes. These unsafe vaccines should worry us way more than this virus. I am thankful for many strong leaders that are taking a stand against medical tyranny. And for our freedom and liberty.
julie kolankowski kolankowski says
THE FACT THAT PEOPLE DO NOT WANT DOCTORS TO GIVE THIS MEDICATION THEY SHOULD BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE DEATHS OF THE PATIENTS WHEN THEY COULD OF BEEN SAVED. SHAME ON THEM.
Patty Regalia DHHP, HD(RHom.) says
They are suppressing any therapies including Homeopathy that can not only treat, but cure this virus. They only want us all to get the vaccine. This whole pandemic is about a vaccine, that is all. Oh, and to control us and take our health freedoms. Also to make Billlllliooonnsss of dollars on the patents they have had since before the pandemic.
kathy boylan says
People in various countries in Africa like Nigeria, Niger and Mozambique who take hydroxychloroquine to prevent and treat malaria report very few covid-19 cases and deaths. The hydroxychloroquine is preventing coronvirus.
Dr R M says
No need for anything as it is a planned and fake demic Even the CDC. Stated no one really died. From this hoax There records show only 6 percent of the their fake cases died and those 6 percent had other diseases like cancer diabetes Alzheimer’s etc . Of course the media is not telling you this but CDC News went viral last week. Wake up sheep this was a planned hoax to destroy The economy and influence the election And the fools rushed in where wise men never go. American people duped by demoncrats again!
rachel moore says
Big pharma and others dont want hydroxychloroquine to be used because it works and it is cheap. They dont care about we the people, just profits.
Clare Puskarczyk says
Thank you. Fauci and Gates are giving us misinformation. Please, Dear Governor, consider masks, When wearing a mask which does nothing, cortisol levels go up! Immune system goes down. Amygdala is reactive (fight, flight, fright, flee) and the prefrontal cortex, intelligent vision, sense of consequences, etc. is not working. This is science!
The following is the best that I have seen/read — a movie and journal articles.
There is more here that addresses children in school.

The decision on medical treatment should be between a doctor and his/her patient not a pharmacist or the insurance company or some political hack inserting themselves in the discussion.
Paul Moses says
By this time hundreds if not thousands of highly trained medical doctors have tried and testified of the efficacy of HCQ thereby mitigating, if not entirely eliminating, the need for the “sacred” randomized double blind placebo studies. The free market is, and has always been, the most cost effective and expedient way of determining the real value of things The compromised and corrupt politicos and bureaucrats will never stop putting their greedy little paws into the mix regardless of the death and suffering it results in.
Debra Prisk says
you can also sip on Tonic water with Quinine. The troops use to sip on that to avoid getting Malaria. And don’t forget the zinc. I want to ask the Gov. about turning the Colleges into FEMA camps….
Any medical treatments should be between the patient and the doctor, period.
Robin K says
This has been a political attack on any remedy other than a vaccine, which is ineffective and dangerous and being touted to make a financial windfall for its backers. The vaccine is ineffective in that the virus has mutated and will continue to mutate. Hard to hit a moving target. And dangerous in that it will have foreign RNA in it that can get into the genetics of human cells and alter them. A study with rodents showed that after receiving a vaccine with RNA in it that they did not reproduce three generations later. Vaccines can have retroviruses in them picked up from the tissues they were grown in, which can make people sick. Vaccines have adjuvants in them that can make people sick, including those who don’t detox well. Whereas the HCQ drug doesn’t have any of these complications and works with the mechanism of the immune system, ie which needs zinc in order to fight the infection and that’s what the HCQ drug enables.
Elizabeth Brunckhorst says
As a Child I took this medicine to prevent me from getting malaria while my mother was working in Sumatra for three years. I’m doing just fine more than fifty years later. If many doctors have used it and it’s cheap and saves lives,then Fauci’s objections clearly indicate some other motive!
Tom Bernard says
What frightens me most is the level at which, (huge numbers) of people have embraced the virus, masks, social distancing, and even their loss of personal rights and freedoms. All without thirty minutes of actual research… but , I suppose these are the same people who blindly line their children up for a multitude of vaccines without question; fully aware of the related controversy and safety concerns… Although I fear as well, that attitude will change once the suffering and death piles up from the Fauci/Gates experimental covid vaccine… In the meantime, as my heart breaks on a daily basis for our children’s future. I think it would be lovely if more people would remove their head from their ass and realize we have extremely legitimate treatments available for, “the virus.” …Oh, and for whatever it’s worth. My wife has been a nurse for 24 years. She works in a hospital with over 900 beds, and this is the first year in her career without a single flu case… Perhaps they all went on holiday together.
Ben Smith says
It is obvious that Big Pharma wants to control all medications. They don’t make any money on HCQ. So force the nation to buy their less effective drugs and let the people die. It’s all about control and greed.
Raymond Dale says
Dear Sirs & Ms….What is their, [ likes of Fauci ], agenda to keep tis drug from the dying, and to prevent people getting this evil man made germ warfare upon the people of our world. This shows us the type of criminals running Big Pharmam they all should be arrested and locked up for the mass loss of life and the willful destruction of the economies of the world, with loss of jobs and businesses going under. Talk about criminal abuse of power, this is it, glaring at us with all it disgusting shameful evidence. ..Jail the corrupt lot of them.
Peter William Ball says
Lefty and MSM got blood on their hands to play CCP virus politically at the cost of 180,000 lives of American. Should they get the treatment recommended by President Trump and should they have not suppressed the voice of doctors, 98% of 180,000 lives were now with us. As per Dr Limeng Yan, HCQ is the safe drug to prevent and for early treatment of CCP virus. CCP top leaders started taking HCQ from 26 December 2019 and that’s why they didn’t get infected. WHO, NIA and so called top scientists have been puppets of CCP and their evil responses have killed people worldwide as today more than 800 thousands exclusive China as more than the total number of worldwide Chinese were killed without their names and even without a number for counting.
Take down CCP is the only way to save us as there won’t be fully functional vaccination without the original gnome of the virus.
Claudette Losier says
Why is a pharmacist board in Ohia allowed to make decisions to block this cure Hydroxychloroquine when they do not direct treat patients and doctors world wide not just in US have proven that this drug works on CV19 patients???? This to me is a conflict of interest by these pharmacist board members! We know this drug cost very little and they ….pharmacist board members cannot make as much revenue on selling this drug and that is what is behind this so called medical tyranny issue!
I’ve known ever since President Trump said he was taking it that it was safe to use and I believe if anyone denies a person the right to try this medication then they should be brought to justice immediately. I believe all persons denying hcg’s use should be jailed and that includes mayors and governors
Irene Manning says
Hydroxychloroquine is a safe drug, that has been around for 60 years, Numerous doctors have used this drug successfully against the virus. It cost around 14 cents to treat someone with the drug (follow the money). I don’t believe anything Dr. Fauci says, he has been involved in research with viruses, trying to make them more severe. He has doing research with China for years. It’s criminal that doctors can not dispense Hydroxychloroquine.
How many people died because they were denied this drug that has been around for decades and is safe? Fauci and MSM constantly pushing fear and making people afraid when we had a solution that works. WHY? For prophet and/or political reasons. They have blood on their hands! Time to open the states and allow people to use HCQ.
Chris Roper says
I have always felt it should be left up to the patient. After all, it is their life and we are suppose to live in a free country. In many countries Hydroxycholoquine is sold over the counter, because it is considered safe. It has a much better safety record for instance, than acetaminophen or Tyenol. It is one of the leading causes of liver failure in the United States.
I am thankful for our Governor standing up for the rights of the Ohio people: ethical doctors & patients both. It’s not a blind shot in the dark, or an unscientific thing he is doing: the use of this drug for viral infections has a history. It is not an easy thing for any politician to stand up to the deep pockets, corruption and conflicts of interest involving big pharma and global players like Bill Gates. Perhaps we are blessed to have an ‘elder’ statesman willing to take this stand! Not beholden for another run.
People scream ‘conspiracy theory’ when you bring these following facts up: but facts are facts, and can be verified. Not so easily as they once were, now that we have the manipulated algorithms & state-sponsored propaganda against the American people legalized in one of organizer Obama’s coup de grace, but still possible. Hopefully to get better soon.
The issue against hydroxylchloroquine is purely political. Dr. Fauci knows this. There were articles approved by Anthony Fauci’s agency in the early 2000’s on its effectiveness against coronavirus infections, and more, in their own publication. The first article reported that it was extremely effective against SARS coronavirus 2005. https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/16115318/
In the second article, in 2006, a study reported that it was extremely effective against influenza A. Since that article seems to have disappeared from pubmed or search engines are burying it, here is the link to one from 1993 showing that chloroquine and hydroxlchloroquine blocked HIV-1 and other viruses from entering cells & replicating…..showing that this mechanism and approach to treatment was not novel, but known for some time. https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/8427717/
Because of the physiological changes it makes supporting cells & keeping viruses out, it isn’t like an antibiotic or antiviral which loses its effectiveness as microbes mutate.
New drugs, new patents, and a $69 billion a year influx from the flu shot mandate makes a whole lot more money than a treatment costing $20 to be used only for those folks needing it to get them through the crisis, or even used prophylactically to avoid flu and this new coronavirus using a known pathway to infect. I don’t think that would approach $69 billion. Many nations where malaria is common sell it over the counter & if someone feels they’re coming down with something, they take it. Who knew? It’s likely been protecting them from more than malaria all along!
As for Surgisphere: it was found to be a front company having at most 6 employees. Seriously shady stuff: here are only two links describing it, out of many. https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2020/06/exclusive-lancet-study-hydroxychloroquine-complete-fraud-authors-linked-pharmaceutical-industry-people-died-lies/
I hope this is a sign of things to come,but I won.t hold my breath!
Larrywinfield Pelley says
In the final analysis is MUST be up to the PATIENT…after education and scrutiny to make the
final decision to take or not to take any medication or Drug of any kind…especially since most
Drugs and medication are the concoction of people who are in the shadows and won’t show
their face to the masses who buy their Drugs.
The scam is about making money for Big Pharma’s vaccine & medical cartel (The third leading cause of Death, see Johns Hopkins study & the book “Death by Medicine”) MONEY much needed to buy advertising & politicians! The other reason, #2 Big governments want and need more Power to control You! And as a bonus there inspiration, Satan gets the corrupted leftovers, forever! How great is that?
Deborah Anne Christensen says
It is NOT the government’s job to protect my life. It IS the government’s job to protect my rights and to protect the Constitution.
Arpad Schummer says
I firmly believe the entire Corona Virus debacle is complete BULLPOOP!. I’m personally aware of two elderly people who recently died of causes totally unrelated to coronavirus or any other respiratory ailment, yet the death certificates issued blamed their demise on “COVID-19”! The AMA as well as other so-called medical associations are nothing more than pawns of the Pharmaceutical industry. I Purchased a DVD from the Mercola website entitled “DOCTORED”. I suggest others should also buy this video, give them as gifts to family & friends! I myself am a victim of the Pharma/Med criminal cartel. Insurance companies are also guilty participants in the murderous fraud perpetrated on the public. Every one of my siblings as well as my mother have been murdered by medical practitioners. My mother was killed in 1985 to shut her up about what caused her to have a massive heart attack in the E.R. after her jackass doctor overdosed her with a narcotic cough syrup. I could write a book just describing the blatant stupidity that killed my family members. I have a sister-in-law whose bones are so brittle she’s afraid to do anything as a result of being poisoned with “FLUORIDE”, in bone density drugs. Let’s not forget that as recently as the end of the 19th century, doctors (BARBERS), were slashing people’s veins to get rid of the “BAD HUMORS”, black blood, to make them better because they didn’t understand that the blood carried oxygen (RED BLOOD) and carbon dioxide (BLACK BLOOD). Many people died, being bled to death because they had too much black blood!
I’m also thankful that Governor Dewine did not insult our intelligence and our livelihoods by extending the lockdown & mandating the wearing of loose, 10 and 3 micron rated masks, to supposedly protect one another from a .1 micron aerolized virus: that’s 1/10th of a micron. It’s like stopping ants with chicken wire, or trying to keep mice out leaving a 5″ gap below your door and around your pipes. Makes NO sense.
Just like having patents on coronaviruses and keeping anyone who can from finding cures or treatments for them ALSO makes no sense in a moral society. If the euthanasia-inclined are the ‘gods’ they think they are: why don’t they work on ways to make more people healthy & to spread the health and freedom around?
Folks should look at pictures online at the containment suits scientists working with viruses wear. It’s the best containment there is, and they do it for a reason: but the virus still escaped. Our puny and ineffective masks are a joke.
Those plexiglass things may look dorky: but it’s best to be able to BREATHE, and not to be breathing in Co2 levels higher than OSHA allows, suffering chronic headaches, passing out…etc. Those stressors have longterm effects on the body. If your job demands it….go for that to preserve your health & your pocketbook both since shields can be cleaned & reused, while lobbying your elected officials to stop the insanity.
The fact that government folks are ‘exempt’ should tell us something.
Every immune compromised person wearing a mask is only further compromising whatever immune function & health they have left, and rebreathing, and incubating in their mask, their nasal passages and olfactory cells….whatever toxins the body’s immune system is trying to eliminate to keep them alive. From the olfactory cells, viruses like this one affecting smell & taste can infect the brain.
It’s insanity, and we need to resist this dehumanizing and unequally- imposed symbol of submission they used to use on resistant chattel slaves until the Evangelicals worked to abolish the wicked institution every race & nation of men has practices at some time in their history.
All men are created equal and endowed with God-given rights is the ideal this country was founded upon, and the tension of hypocrisy when that ideal was not met caused good men to fight & resist slavery. The shift of money & power when Great Britain abolished the trade in their territories, ensured that powerful factions would not permit the peaceful legislative end of slavery here. If Vatican gold hadn’t funded Jeff Davis’ endeavor: it would have died a’birthing, while there was big money agitation in the North.
Today money is funneled to cause division and attempt to destroy this free nation as it was then. What we no longer have is a God-fearing moral populace & what Adams said about that is true. We don’t need a state religion which is the way of all tyranny, but we do need the Bill of Rights freedoms and a faithful willing to sacrifice to protect & defend. Some who’ve disappeared and revised history should be ashamed & are reaping the fruit of their illegitimate & deceitful, unbelieving, unfaithful and idolatrous humanist ecumenical Romish ways. Pertinent documents in the Library of Congress concerning our founding have been ‘disappearing’ from the shelves for decades. Why was that tolerated? Leland and Gano knew the truth of General Washington’s character & faith, his attempts to free his slaves in spite of his war-indebted estate, his need to be wary of State religionists slavering for a return to the old Romish European order….their slander of him being an infidel because of his earlier Masonic involvement, and their HATRED of his biblical conversion & statement of baptism rejecting man-controlled ritual baptism. He went to church for the preaching of the word, arriving late & leaving early to avoid the ritual craft which offended conscience before God. Asahel Green & his ilk could not let that rest.
But we’re not allowed to have grown up history discussions, or to speak or teach whole truth anymore, and it was clever to call sin the sole problem of the white race, and to make malleable tradition and philosophy ‘science’ instead of seeking and insisting upon the whole truth being told. Diabolically dishonest, flattering and puffing men’s sin til they’re so blind in pride that they’ll believe & do anything for their handlers & the lying spirit behind them: handlers having no real concern or love for the people they use, and who will get the same treatment in the end from the lying & unfaithful spirit they chose to worship & serve against the witness of their own conscience: doing to others what they do not want done to themselves.
Generations are purposely kept ignorant of these facts for deceitful reasons and greed. I suppose once a people allows men to play their patenting schemes to ‘evolve’ the Bible into a mass of confusion….and starts killing their own children, they shouldn’t be surprised at what deep state and pharma and the globalists are up to with regard to violation & loss of liberty. Not like we haven’t seen it before, or as if God hasn’t judged just such a people who had the truth and rejected it for lies before. God has mercy for the repentant, but he is far from the deceitful & proud.
Lisa manning says
There is billions of people living in Africa.The malaria tabs have been handed out like candy to fight Malaria. Only 26 deaths due to Corona virus. Its been proven many times HCQ is a cheap safe affective medication..The billions to be made is by inventing a vaccine. Bill Gates do not want his Billions to be railroaded by any other cheap, safe medications.Bill Gates own most of the media. Need i say any more?
Judith Ream says
Thank you Gov. Dewine! Maybe our Gov DeSantis would do the same and stand up to political truancy.
Bob Schork says
I think we just found our 2024 frontrunner. Way to go, Gov DeWine.
Elo McMillan says
Stella Johnson says
Governor DeWine, you are the bomb! In the opening paragraph of this article it states: “the government, media, and pharmaceutical industry have been fighting tooth and nail to make the drug unavailable – despite overwhelming evidence that it can prevent and treat COVID-19.” The people with their blinders on might ask themselves, why is that? To the rest of us who know what’s going on, the obvious answer is Money. Everyone gets paid by the pharmaceutical industry, the government, the media, in fact different pharmaceutical companies like Merck, actually own several television stations. The pharmaceutical industry owns Google, YouTube, Facebook and others. That’s why there is so much censoring of people who are trying to get the truth out there. They are being taken down. Doctors discredit drugs like hydroxychloroquine and even high dose IV vitamin C because they don’t get paid for that. They get paid for vaccinating their patients. The evidence of how good a treatment is can be determined by how many people/companies object to its use. Of course Fauci objects to the use of hydroxychloroquine because it might take the interest off his covid vaccine. Which, by the way, will supply him with billions of dollars, and Gates as well. He says hydroxychloroquine needs to be tested. It’s only been used for 70 years with excellent results. How many years is his vaccine going to be tested? Between Fauci and Gates they have killed and permanently injured so many babies and children with their vaccines, but they have never been put on trial for murder. The CDC and the Dept of Health are in on the whole thing too. I listened to a nurse that works in a Florida hospital and she said they use hydroxychloroquine and high dose vitamin C. They have excellent results and no deaths. She needed more hours so she took a job at a New York hospital. It was just the opposite. They laughed at hydroxychloroquine and high dose vitamin C, they said it was “silly.” They put non-covid patients in rooms with covid patients in hopes they would catch it. People who come in with shortness of breath because of anxiety are put on a ventilator. When you have surgery you get one anesthesia. They give these people 9 anesthetics plus a paralytic drug so their brain is gone. Then they blow their lungs out with a ventilator. All for money. They get paid a lot of money for each covid patient. Doctors have said that ventilators are not the correct treatment and should be stopped. They were censored too. Even the CDC admits that the number of deaths was inflated by 90 percent. Everyone has lied to us. Sorry, I didn’t mean to write a book, but this has been planned for a very long time. I feel so bad for the people who have been sick and lost loved ones, all because some people want to get much richer, and have total control.
Mr Magoo says
Why would the powers that be want you to take a drug that only costs about ten cents when they can make billions on a vacine that probably won’t do anything and then oooops time to try something else……I think it’s time to bring back pu lic executions …. it would be good for the economy.
Michael Earl Riemer says
“Proponents of the ban…insist that HCQ is not an effective treatment for COVID-19, citing potential side effects as the reason for the ban.”
If they want to ban it for this reason, then almost every single drug issued by a pharmacy should be banned! For about 100,000 people die each year from side effects caused by legal prescription drugs.
I agree that how I choose to treat myself medically, nutritionally, or holistically is not the government’s business. I should not be prohibited from or mandated to take any drug or vaccine against my better judgment.
If your having trouble getting on a preventative regimen for HCQ go to the site Speakwithanmd.com they will prescribe and provide a pharmacy they will drop ship to you. They don’t take insurance but the treatment and Dr. visit was less than $100. You can get help wether you have Covid or just want to prevent. #medicalfreedom
Clive Bragdon says
There exists a mountain of anecdotal evidence that the Zelenko Protocol of hydroxychloroquine, zinc sulfate and azithromycin is very effective when used within the first five or six days of symptoms appearing. What we have witnessed throughout this entire episode has been politics interfering with medicine and there is no doubt that it has cost many tens of thousands of people their lives. The truly unconscionable part of this whole deep State nightmare is the fact that dr. Anthony Fauci has known for over a decade that chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine were effective against this family of virus yet he participated greatly in blocking its usage. For this, he’s paid $400,000 a year! There is no excuse for such incompetence and Corruption and there never will be. For that matter, when it comes to the whole damned bloated agency known as the CDC, exactly what disease did they control this time? Or for that matter, what Timely and valuable information did we, As Americans, get from these 11,000 geniuses? As far as I can tell, in the end analysis, we have learned nothing from the NIH or the CDC that we didn’t already know from The Book of Leviticus which is considerably older than either agency. Unfortunately the agencies got it backwards. We were told 3,500 years ago to quarantine the sick not the healthy! What’s more, these incompetent bureaucrats failed miserably from the day the Grand Princess Cruise Line pulled into Oakland California. They had a captive and nearly perfect petri dish of exactly what they needed to know about covid-19 . There were over 3,000 people aboard including crew and children, yet the average age was 70. Had they done their damned jobs correctly, the country would have known exactly what to expect from this virus. They failed this country miserably and the cost for their failure will be paid for generations to come!
Grace Kamps says
I agree with the comments made above. Since when has the government banned drugs because of side effects, anyway? It does seem there is more going on here than currently meets the eye.
Irene Torvillelle says
I agree .The doctors should be able to prescribe HCQ for their patients if they think it will help them. The doctor patient relationship is sacred
How can I help fight for my rights
Brooklyn Survivor says
2 days on the Zelenko protocol, the fever stopped. It works.
We are being played with on HQC for Profit on Vaccines to be sold by pharmaceutical companies, Bill Gates, and China for the love of money!
I totally agree with governor DeWine and M.Fischer.
James Padgett says
Sadly, the Democrats have been and continue to be strongly politically motivated to keep Pres. Trump from being re-elected. As a part of this they WANT the economy to not recover until after the Nov. 3 election. If the hydroxychloroquine protocol could be widely used both for cure and prevention, it would quickly remove this virus. But Democrats don’t want this. They shamefully – along with their allies in the mainstream media have strongly poo-pooed the efficicacy of this long used and safe drug, even with the appearance of the brilliant articles by famed Yale epidimiologoist Dr. Harvey RIsch and many others. Shame on these godless devils.
Well said! I agree 100%
Charlotte mecklenburg says
I lived in malaria infested land 30 years and took chloroqine every week during that time. I was unable to take all the medicine to take the malaria out of my system. So when I get the chills and fever every other day I know it is the malaria and I take the medicine I found out later when I had the flu it also helped me recover. Am 82 years of age now and still use it.
Dewine is still a mask nanny, cowering to fear over facts. The new CDC numbers reflect tyranny. The daily death count, faulty data, and faulty modeling were all based in hysteria and fear from the onset. He should resign after rescinding his ridiculous mandates on businesses, schools, and the citizens of OHIO.
Governments are not trained Physicians & Doctors are not Government – Each should do their job! Neither has the right to lock-down & oppress the citizens of their country!
In the article it was stated “Governor Mike DeWine is one of those heroes” – I totally agree!
Debbie Goings says
Hydroxychloroquine has been safely used for about 65 years. Toxicity issues occur when used at very high doses or over an extended period of time–such as over five years. This in itself is it’s own safety trial. I believe like many others that the government should not be involved in medical decisions at all. They do not have a medical degree. We did not elect or choose the doctors they choose to listen to. They are there to protect us from criminals, both domestic and foreign and to mete out justice–not control our medical choices.
I find it interesting that pro-abortion supporters love to tout, “Freedom of choice,” and We should have control over their own bodies,” but are silent now.
Just very happy to see some science and common sense prevail 🙏🏻
People have died unnecessarily and that’s just wrong.
Thanks for hanging in there to fight the good fight
Let physicians practice medicine, as best they understand their area of specialty, based on data, research, and science.
Let politicians practice politics. Though not likely, should they happen to do so based on the same three criteria, so much the better.
And finally, let’s pray the spin doctors and snake-oil salespeople we’ve come to call “the media” – social and otherwise, left and right leaning – learn a more productive and helpful role in our world than fear-mongering, reinforcing cognitive biases, and stimulating the limiting beliefs that increase anxiety, support divisiveness, and strengthen mistrust in virtually everything other than two or three dominant, self-serving narratives.
Charmaine Busch says
Pleas make HCQ available for every American!!!
Hydroxychloroquine is a very safe medicine and can be a very effective treatment which should be readily available. In some countries it is available over-the-counter without a prescription. The issue of medical freedom is very important and all medical decisions should be between the physician and the patient, not dictated by bureaucrats. Thanks for the work you do in protecting medical freedom.
But…but…but we Big Farma want to make $$$, and HCQ is too cheap.
Edith Wogaman says
I believe there is so much conflicting information, the general public does not know who and what to trust.
You as well as opposing opinions strongly believe what you believe is correct. Even the so called “researchers”
have conflicting results. This kind of dialogue has been going on for decades. All we can do is trust what
we feel is right for our own bodies. While your articles have alot of great information, there are many times
when the slant is political and so conservative, it makes one wonder………..
Shelley Diaz says
Amen and ty Gov. DeWine for stepping up for your people God bless you
Yet the regulation remains in effect. See below. And he has the authority to immediately reverse it since it was created by a State Board under his authority as the executive. So if you are the Super Pac regarding “Medical Freedom”, why don’t you know this? Instead you are trying to raise money on a lie. What is up? And should we support DeWine since by your definition he is engaging in Medical Tyranny. And now he’s added lying about it to the situation. He actually led people to believe that the State of Ohio Board of Pharmacy can enact regulations that he has no authority over and he said he would “ask” them to reverse it. At the time that sounded odd to me since I knew the regulation was part of the Ohio Administrative Code which is the compilation of regulations created by the Executive Branch of Ohio’s state government, which he is the head of. So upon reading your article I got wild and Googled it. Crazy, I know.

There needs to be an article with data showing the countries currently using hydroxychloroquine for malaria like Africa and the low rate of COVID deaths and cases.
My Mom (92 ) and Dad (95) tested positive for Covid in July at their Assisted Living Facility. They developed symptoms one day after being nasal swab tested by SC DHEC one day earlier. The next day we were told they tested positive. Within hours we were able to give the 200mg of HCQ and 50mg of zinc twice a day. Within 4 days all symptoms disappeared and they were cured.

I strongly believe in the use of hydroxychloroquine in combination with zinc and any antibiotic of ample spectrum for the use in upper respiratory and lung disease.
Guayaquil in Ecuador controlled COVID-19 after the onset back in March 2020 with the help of Chloroquine.
A private organization with help of the local government where able to import Chloroquine from Colombia and Peru, chloroquine was mass distributed in Guayaquil and render a positive effect controlling the virulent pest that had the medical system of Guayaquil and its citizens on their knees.
It is peculiar to observe how the control and almost complete elimination of Covid-19 in Guayaquil is going on unnoticed by governments, health organizations and media around the world. It is probably the best example of Chloroquine efficacy with out double blind testing.
Guayaquil was not a small sample test!
it is said that those with a long qt thing with their heart might die from it. just do a heart test.
LM Domingue says
Thank you for your comment. And isn’t this what is already done with all FDA approved medications which also have side effects (all of them have side effects. It is rare to see an ad for a medication that does not have a laundry list of side effects.) The MD and patient weigh these side effects with the positive effects of the drug and decide together how to proceed. Why cannot this process also work with HCQ? It’s simple. The process is in place.
Gerald Henton says
Those who prevented the use of a medication for political reasons that would of saved lives should be held accountable. The deliberate withholding of aid is criminal and negligent if not outright murder.
I 100% agree. The government run “medical and pharmacutical” organizations have become FAR too political to be actually objective. Personal medical decisions should be made by the Doctor and the patient.
Donald A. Drum, Ph.D. says
Hydroxychloroquine, Azithromycin, and Zinc assigned by a doctor is more effective than most of the drugs being developed. In some cases, only Hydroxychloroquine and Zinc will be used used to address the Covid-19 problem, while all three medications will be used in more severe cases.
Since Hydroxychloroquine has been successfully used for years to solve
health problems for malaria, arithritis and lupus, there is no legitimate reason to delay approval of Hydroxychloroquine. Donald A. Drum, Ph.D.
Greg Smith says
I am from New Zealand where the same restrictions have been placed on this common, long studied, drug.
The freedom issue is distinctly understated in media and disgusts me that govts can get away with treating public so inhumanely.
BarryB, md says
Your citations make no mention of the renowned French infectious disease specialist, Dr. Didier Raoult, who, to my knowledge, has the most experience in the world testing, doing follow-up and treating positive cases of Covid-19. His numbers are better than any others as far as my research goes.
He has published, given interviews and testified in the French legislature despite attacks on his heretofore unblemished reputation and competence.
The waters are being muddied by pseudo science and retracted, suspicious, poorly documented “studies” in otherwise mainstream medical journals.
Censorship and suppression of information has been ongoing for the past 7 months.à
Over 1 BILLION doses have been prescribed/taken in the past 65 years.
It is sold over the counter in South America, Sub Saharan Africa, Indonesia and Iran – as well as in France until January 13th, 2020.
Who benefits from these lies and the cover-up?
Tea Party Bob says
Once again Big Pharma would rather put people’s lives at stake by denying them a drug that would help them for the sake of making lots of money on newmore expensive supposed remedies. America looses when Big Pharma lobbyists play political games. People will die and those who are responsible for witholding HCQ should be sued for every penny they are worth.
Mark Blair says
This is a great report HCQ should be used as a preventative medicine and for early onset of COVID-19. Fauci lied to profit his friends in the pharmaceutical industry that were working on new drugs to sell. This has been the greatest medical crime of our time!
Yvonne Rahui says
Well done Governor Mike DeWine..standing as a lone wolf along side your President!
AND..as if its the only drug with side affects..my gosh. Every pharmaceutical has risks & call for another to counteract that one & so on till a person is on quite a number!
The majority of us are a foolish people..following everything the powers that be..like sheep lead to the slaughter.
Lets research for ourselves..and ask tge questions!
Ine last comment..what gets me is; HOW QUICKLY Posts/Videos that GIVE US A CONTERCLAIM to what the ‘powers that be’ are telling us..ARE REMOVED! YET the STUFF THAT DESTROYS OUR YOUNG IS RIFE & only ever increasing.
Theres something very pervasive & wrong.
Read Revelation..last book of the Bible!
Totally agree..this isn’t science it’s common sense! It gets to the heart of where vested interests meet public safety. Mr Fauci’s involvement with the Wuhan labs needs to be looked at, as well as his financial interests in new copyrighted treatments.
Joe Power says
It’s about time to let doctors give this medicine to save lives
Kathleen Smith says
I think it.s great that Hydroxychloroquine can be used in Ohio! It has saved many peoples lives already. I hope other states also respect the people who are now alive because they took this drug! Thank You Gov. Mike DeWine!
George Henley says
If I catch corona, I would take hydroxy immediately. No questions aaked. I have two friends who got COVID-19 and their spouses were told by their physician that they would not have any problem with COVID-19 as their arthritic medicine has hydroxy in it!!!!!! Testimonial!!!!!
Great! I’m glad DeWine is reversing his decision but the man should be removed from office for other unconstitutional liberties he has taken upon himself along with about 45 other governors. And it can’t happen soon enough.
Ohio Standsup says
DeWine is a deranged power hungry fascist RINO. He is just as bad as Governor Newsome! He is destroying OH with his never-ending draconian restrictions on nursing homes, schools, & economy.
DeWine opposed the HCQ ban NOT because of “strong leadership” but because of massive overwhelming blow-back from Ohioans Statewide! The only way to reign in these fascist technocrat Nazi dictators is in Federal court…& that is exactly where DeWine will be, thanks to small town Ohio heroes (see link below)
Ohio Stands Up! files lawsuit against the State of Ohio to remove the unconstitutional emergency order
Where will the lawsuit be filed?
The venue for this lawsuit will be federal district court. We chose to pursue litigation in a federal court because that permitted us to affect the most change. By filing in federal court, our case will be heard at the federal level. When court orders are issued, and eventually a court ruling is determined, it will have a reach far beyond Ohio – it will establish a precedent for every state.
Pharma should only ban drugs shown to cause harm, not drugs that do not cause harm even if they do not result in improvement.
Delores Johnsom says
I think that it should between the doctor and patient and that the medication should stay on the market and not be bully by large drug company’s
Nicolaas Maritz says
Hydroxychloroquine in the medical arena is not supposed to be a political issue. This is an issue for the medical profession only. If this is a poltical issue it would imply that the government would acknowledge that their doctors are not not well qualified and do not have sufficient chemical knowledge to handle Big Pharma’s products. This would also imply that Big Pharma is not up to date with their own medications and therefore is not fit to prescribe to anyone how medication is to be used . Shame on Big Pharma and shame on the politicians.
Andrew Bauer says
It’s all up to you as far as what treatment you would like to try! Not the trustworthy socialists!
Derek Lahr says
Investigate nebulized pumicore as a Covid breathing treatment.
The information is being suppressed!
Craig R. says
Finally a leader who will stand in the face of medical tyranny.
William Klemme says
Other states who do not have the freedom to use HCQ should be sued for blocking the use of a life-saving medication. That would get their attention.
Deepak Shori says
Thank God, someone has woken up to the lies – we applaud you!
It’s not about Trump vs. the Democrats. It’s not political. It’s about the huge, hungry greedy pharmaceutical monsters. They own Congress, they own the media and they direct public information. If there’s a proven cure for the virus, then the state can’t mandate forced vaccinations.
Lee Rockwell says
The people stopping use of HCQ need to be held responsible for crimes against humanity and genocide.
I know thіs site offers quality dependent posts and extra information, is there any other web page whiϲh offers these information in quality?
Walther Grot says
One reason for the controversy has been, that results obtained with HCQ alone, sometimes too late in the progression of the disease or with unrealistic dosage, have then been applied broadly to combinations of HCQ with other medications and in early intervention. One of such combination of drugs, with zinc as the main active ingredient and used in early intervention (<5 days after first symptoms), is known as the "Zelenko Protocol". It has given excellent results, particularly with elderly or other at risk patients. I am not aware of any case in which it was ineffective.
Campany Terry says
It’s been said this drug eats cancer cells and doesn’t touch the healthy cells. How many lives could this drug save,is that one of the reason they don’t want doctors to prescribe this !
judith thomas says
Absolutely it should be between the patient and doctor or even between the pharmacist and patient! There are meds available and the pharmacist can advise the patient and if there are side effects, that’s for the patient to deal with. It is obvious this is a political maneuver with everyone being afraid of being responsible for the wrong thing.
J. Reyes says
Please don’t limit the treatment to the mention of HCQ. The primary antiviral is Zinc, but zinc needs help to get inside the cell and that’s where HCQ comes in. HCQ allows Zinc to pass the cell wall so that it can disrupt the virus from growing. So it’s not just HCQ! It’s Zinc in combination with HCQ.
1) Good article. 2) It is a travesty that not only HCQ but a couple of other drugs (Budesonide and Ivermectin) in a cocktail w/zinc and an antibiotic (for potential secondary infections) have not been allowed the coverage they deserve in the media and medical circles as both treatment and prophylactic for this virus. This is a political matter, pure and simple. Including the fact that both Drs. Fauci and Birx on Pres.Trump’s Virus Task Force have conflicts of interest, with vaccine-producing outfits. The corruption in this ‘business’ of this virus is disgusting. Plus the outrageous fact that both the infection case and fatality case numbers have found mohave been inflated, stout it is not a pandemic, but is more in the category of a seasonal flu. So STOP WITH THIS NONSENSE ALREADY of all this mask-wearing and Social Distancing and Lockdown hysteria, and let’s get out of this mindset that is turning us into scared little subjects of the almighty state. We are better than this. Time to claim our sovereignty, as ‘spiritual beings having a human experience’. And having a right difficult time of it right at the moment.
It should be between the doctor and the patient. The goverment needs to keep their nose of this. I’m sick of big goverment sticking their noses in where it dosen’t belong. We should be able to make our own decisions on personal health issues .
Tom Underwood says
I agree with the Governor.
Mitchell and Candace Edmonds says
I am overjoyed to hear that Governor DeWine is finally seeing the light, and that having become the “MANIC MASK MANDATOR” of Ohio, (sitting under a cloud of impeachment) simply IS NOT the BEST that he can offer his state! I for one, amongst thousands I’m sure, have prayed about this issue nightly, to see him finally take his position as our Governor seriously enough so that we could break the YOKE OF FEAR that is upon the citizens of our state. NO ONE wants to go into the hospital, be drugged up, intubated then put under a ventilator with no visitors allowed and no one to advocate for them…hence the COVID-19 PANIC that is over our land! So many doctors now, have stated that THAT protocol is NOT the best for most Covid-19 patients and far too many die under it; Dr. Cameron Kyle-Sidel (front line/non political doctor) being only one of them. A Governor that is willing to think out of the “politically correct box” and actually look out for the lives of his constituents is a rare and precious one indeed! The citizens of his state will smile and skip to the ballot box, excited to vote for him again – KNOWING that he BRAVE, has their best interest in mind, and refuses to be a political puppet of the Globalist/New World Order (many of which can be found in the W.H.O. the C.D.C. the F.D.A. and the unwieldy NIH (consisting of 20-some separate Institutes and Centers, the NPC; with State boards basically just doing as they are told. That you Governor DeWine for speaking truth to power for the rest of us. NOW, the next step is finding doctors willing to treat patients in this manner – and HELPING US TO FIND THEM! Believe me, having mild COPD, I have tried and spoken to others who have as well, and so far it’s been a losing game for us…so your involvement would be appreciated!
Mitchell and Candace Edmonds
I think Fauci is making a fortune speaking negatively about this medication. I truly believe that HCQ, combined with ,zinc ,and Zithromax is the answer.
Gerald D. Williams, Ph.D. says
HCQ combos work. Period. End of Story.
It is not just about choice, but rather it is about MURDER, if not used as the primary outpatient treatment upon clinical diagnosis (not wait for a +PCR).
There has never been a proper EARLY study that did NOT show that it was effective. ZERO
There have been over 60 studies showing it works, and in many countries.
Here is the link to most of the studies submitted for peer review:
And link to the Dr. Zelenko prophylaxis and treatment protocols (goes beyond HCQ combos):
In 2005 Fauci said HCQ was a miracle drug for sars covid! What changed? Oh, $$$, Gates, patents on covid, etc. Follow the $$$.
Wade Sharrock says
If they have an alternative treatment for C-19 they cannot mandate the vaccine, hence the need to discredit any alternative treatments.
Mary Gelner says
I believe that Dr. Fauci knew that HCQ worked with the SARS virus , which is another coronavirus. He purposely covered up that fact and went on to recommend Remdivisir , which had no clinical trials for COVID19.. But what it did have is a very expensive price tag, $900 a treatment. And the Remdivisir patent just happens to be owned by Dr. Fauci. There is a lot of evidence that HCQ worked for coronavirus and the fact that politics played a role in keeping it from sick and dying people is outrageous. Also , Fauci and Bill Gates were both part of Project 201. Which was a meeting of certain powerful people to plan on how to handle an outbreak of a coronavirus Pandemic. How did they know one was coming and why did they not warn the USA of such and why did the CDC and FDA and NIH all cover up the fact that they knew that HCQ was used successfully during the SARS outbreak. Bottom line is a lot of people died unnecessarily just so BigPharma could make a lot of money with a vaccine and Remdivisir. Go to the Patent office and follow the “CORONAVIRUS PATENT” YOU WILL SEE WHO OWNS THE PATENT FOR CORONAVIRUS AND YOU WILL HAVE YOUR ANSWER, WHY AND WHO.
Silvia Logan says
I think that it would be up to both the doctor and the patient whether they think that hydroxychloroquin would be the best drug to try and fight COVID-19 or prevent you from getting the virus the first place. If this drug does not work, maybe the doctor and patient can try alternatives.

Right here is the perfect website for anyone who wishes to understand this topic.
You understand so much its almost hard to argue with you
(not that I actually would want to…HaHa). You certainly put a brand new spin on a topic that has
been written about for ages. Wonderful stuff, just wonderful!
