Program:
 
Dr. Jane M. Orient MD was the speaker.  She spoke about the early treatment of COVID 19.
She first emphasized that the pandemic is worldwide and has a devastating effect on world health and economies. 
 
She said that doctors’ first recommendation for people when they come down with the virus is to stay home.  She supports the use of hydroxychloroquine, a malaria drug, for use in the early stages of the disease.  She says is safe and effective and is also used for rheumatoid arthritis and lupus.  She says that the fear of heart problems as a side effect, is not substantiated and other studies show it beneficial to the heart.  It can also be used as a prophylactic.  She also believes it is important to have adequate level of Vitamin D, zinc and Vitamin C.
 
For more information on studies done on hydroxychloroquine, Dr. Orient recommends the website c19study.com.      She also recommends the website aapsonline.org.
