    Yet a lot of major news outlets seem to be listening to Bill Gates, self-claimed medical expert and Doctor of... nothing :D

    He's also a primary funder of the WHO and the UN. He's been pumping billions into vaccination development and already stated vaccines provide a "20-1 return on investment". Guess what organizations our governments take a lot of their advice from? Yeah, that's right; WHO and the UN. Guess what these organizations and their funders are going to recommend? Yep.

    Here's an internal medicine Doctor (hopefully that's good enough for you) from California, who's successfully treated 1700 Covid patients with hydroxychloroquine. There's many more, to which I can provide links. Practicing Doctors. Successfully treated patients.





    For those unaware, countless doctors are saying a combination of hydroxychloroquine, zinc, and azithromycin successfully treats the virus *when administered early*. Even The Virology Journal, official publication of Dr. Fauci's National Institute of Health, stated back in 2005 "Chloroquine is a potent inhibitor of SARS Coronavirus infection and spread". So what's changed re: Dr. Fauci's findings and opinion? Maybe the fact he's now on the WHO/Gates payroll :rolleyes:

    They're coming to sell you a vaccine most of you don't need. The reason they moved so quickly to try ban/discredit hydroxychloroquine (or any other treatment) is because with an effective, cheap treatment already available, big pharma can't sell the global population a 'vaccine'.

    You're already aware of the saying "follow the money". It applies to nearly everything in life, and is no different here. So do it. Amazes me how people still don't understand this and fail to connect the most basic of dots.

    Mate. You need to get yourself to the conspiracy theory forum as you aren't dealing in facts here.

    Why would herd immunity work on COVID-19 then?

    So far, only very minor variations have been found in the Covid virus. Therefore, the reason we might achieve herd immunity is similar to the reason why a vaccine may be successful. But again, you should know this.

    That sounds a bit like your claim that the HSE are concealing mass cases of reinfection.

    How are the HSE hiding the data? It's about making sure we are understanding the data before it's published. I know of one case personally where the person tested positive in March and September (both tests via PCR). There are more in other centres. It's not huge swathes of people but it noteworthy.

    It's not a conspiracy to hide the information, it's about making sure the correct analysis is released to prevent fear mongering/ fuel to the fire of anti-vaxxers.

    It would be more practical than closing down most of the economy. We have spent (wasted) billions to date, some of which could have been spent on improving control in those environments.


    given i support the approach we are taking which doesn't exclude anyone from going to the shops if they need to, how then am i happy to exclude people from going to the shops? advising the vulnerable to protect themselves to a greater extent if they need to, which has already happened, currently doesn't exclude them because thankfully there is some protection for them via the attempts to control the virus.
    PPE does not protect vulnerable people from getting the virus if it is uncontrolled, for jesus sake we have had health care workers get this thing and that is dispite PPE.
    italy didn't have to try for herd immunity, their situation showed it's not achievable without a vaccine.
    most of the economy is open and working, we have spent money protecting what we can, which is all we could do, turning houses into minny hospitals and leaving the virus run uncontrolled actually would have been a waste of money as it would have delivered nothing.

    Which of the points do you consider "conspiracy theory"? Will provide specific links to back up all points.

    Did I read previous that you worked for the HSE? I know the HSE is constantly slated for bad management etc, but I'm genuinely asking you here: Do you know what they're actually treating Covid patients with? Haven't heard a single thing in the media about it.

      or more likely, it's being banned as it's bogy nonsense with plenty of evidence showing it's lack of effectiveness.

      I suppose you're referring to the likes of the Lancet Medical Journal, who published a study re: Hydroxychloroquine. Well, they were forced to withdraw the article and apologize..

      As per The Guardian:
      "One of the world’s leading medical journals, the Lancet, has reformed its editorial policies following a shocking case of apparent research misconduct involving the study of hydroxychloroquine as a treatment for Covid-19."

      https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/sep/22/the-lancet-reforms-editorial-policy-after-hydroxychloroquine-covid-study-retraction

      A lot of the States that tried to ban it initially have reversed that decision. Ohio being one:
      "The Ohio Board of Pharmacy on Thursday reversed its decision to ban sales of the drug hydroxychloroquine to treat COVID-19 after feedback from the medical community and a request from Gov. Mike DeWine."

        So, you are saying, again, that HSE staff have been reinfected. Again, I am asking you for evidence.

        Why would I risk my job by releasing data that is marked confidential to prove somebody wrong on an internet message board? Believe me. Don't believe me. I'll post the data when the HSE is about to release it. I didn't get here by been thick ;)

        So you've no evidence then. We've been here before and I'm not up for another trip down the rabbit hole, so work away.

        it does, it has been pushed throughout this whole situation.
        you need to start paying actual attention to what is going on and what is being said.

        they likely already are.
        however they are going to have to look to us all to help them and the country as a whole otherwise this thing gets out of control and we actually end up a basket case.

        yeah, they posted the article, greater evidence came to light to show they were incorrect, so they withdrew the article. just like any reputable organisation would do.
        the fact is, if it was effective then it would absolutely be used, why in hell would any country simply require huge resources to be spent on development of a vaccine if this was effective in treating covid? answer, they wouldn't.

        he has given you what evidence he can.
        you obviously missed the part of his post that stated he cannot and will not release confidential data as it's a sackable offence.

        You can talk whatever about the US.

        I'm a hospital pharmacist based in Ireland. There is no evidence that hydroxychloroquine helps with covid-19. No covid 19 protocol in Ireland has hydroxychloroquine on it. It increases risk of QT prolongation. The EMA don't approve it's use for covid 19 and in all fairness, it's a pretty **** antimalarial too.

        What's the covid treatment in hospitals here btw?

        Has it changed much since March?

        Yes, hydroxychloroquine is gone, steroids done seem to help much, probing helps if suffering from ARDs. Only medication that is in trial at moment is remdesevir. Everything else is supportive care.

        The most realistic exit strategy is that the public won't play along with the utter nonsense being touted by NPHET and will just get on with life regardless. NPHET have no strategy, never mind an exit strategy. They will just call for lockdowns ad infinitum.

        If you were told that in five years time they will discover that exposure to this virus reduces your life expectancy by 10 years, would you still think it’s nonsense?

        Nonsense is exposing yourself to unnecessary risks when you have no idea of consequences and it’s even more so when solutions are in sight and all that is required is to sit on your hands and wait.

        NPHET Has the same strategy and only strategy as everyone else, try to keep the risks at the minimum and play for time.

        It is not 12 months yet, but they have effective methods of treatment which obviously already helped to decrease death rate during the second wave. May be this video could explain current approaches in more details: https://youtu.be/bJZcDBTEGio

        On the other thread you said they wete doing antibody testing to prove re infection,I posted that they use pcr testing and phylo/genetic analysis. Now suddenly, you are here saying pcr testing. enough said and still no data just excuses...

        Because there's no money to be made from hydroxychloroquine, even if it is effective.

        Those are protocols you are referring to, not guidelines. Look, I'm not going to publish the data. It's not mine to publish. Cases of reinfection are happening in HCPs in the HSE and I know of one personally. It's a bit worrying to say the least.

        Bingo. These guys don't seem to understand how the world actually works. Money is the answer to everything.

        There's countless doctors saying it's curing their patients. Here's another. Are all these Doctor's lying, or does this massive push towards "vaccination only" have any possible connection to the billions and billions they're going to make from it? :rolleyes:
