            A good friend, who has three young daughters returning to school, it's pure frustration.

                THANK YOU! This makes so much COMPLETE sense! It's well known how many times drugs that look promising when tested on animal subjects fail during clinical trials. This looks like a CLASSIC case. Cell biologists show in studies that a drug works using their reference cells, but their reference cells don't get infected the same way as human lung cells.

                This is why science requires independent studies and careful analysis. Unfortunately it is far too common that an incomplete or erroneous study gets used by people to justify their beliefs. Years from now people will still continue to claim that hydroxychloroquine was effective and it was all a conspiracy, and they will point to those original three studies..

                  Actually it is effective when you look at the results of clinical studies on patients like the Ford Hospital study. The studies that claim it doesn't work used the wrong dosage and didn't include the Zinc and Erithromycin or whatever it is called. Big Tech is trying to help the pharmaceutical companies to make billions on treatments that are not better than those that are more effective and only cost pennies per dose.

                  • It amazes me how people believe what they want to believe rather than what all intelligent evidence indicates.

                      In case you are wondering, It is called 'B### S###'.

                      Vlad mentions 'like the Ford study' so he may be referencing some other study. But here is some observations about the Ford Hospital Study https://www.factcheck.org/2020/07/na...xychloroquine/

                        Here's a different perspective:

                          I object to laws that:

                          1) Protect me from my own (potentially) bad decisions.
                          2) Violate my natural rights.

                          ...
                          Who protects us from your "bad" decisions? How do you define "natural rights?"

                            • Argentina and Saudi Arabia over 300,000 cases.

                              • Louisiana over 3% of population infected. 12 other states over 2%.

                                In perspective we in Canada thought the province of Quebec was badly infected (still at less than 1% of population).
