Don’t fall for this video: Hydroxychloroquine is not a COVID-19 cure

The video shows several doctors in white coats giving a press conference outside the Supreme Court in Washington, D.C. It persists on social media despite bans from Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, and it was published by Breitbart, a conservative news site.

The July 27 event was organized by Tea Party Patriots, a conservative group backed by Republican donors, and attended by U.S. Rep. Ralph Norman, R-S.C.

In the video, members of a new group called America’s Frontline Doctors touch on several unproven conspiracy theories about the coronavirus pandemic. One of the most inaccurate claims comes from Dr. Stella Immanuel, a Houston primary care physician and minister with a track record of making bizarre medical claims, such as that DNA from space aliens is being used in medical treatments.

“This virus has a cure. It is called hydroxychloroquine, zinc, and Zithromax,” Immanuel said. “I know you people want to talk about a mask. Hello? You don’t need [a] mask. There is a cure.”

As of July 27, nearly 150,000 Americans had died because of the coronavirus. Could those deaths have been prevented by a drug that’s used to treat lupus and arthritis?

No. Immanuel’s statement is wrong on several points.

‘This virus has a cure’

There is no known cure for COVID-19.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there is no specific antiviral treatment for the virus. Supportive care, such as rest, fluids and fever relievers, can assuage symptoms.

“There is currently no licensed medication to cure COVID-19,” according to the World Health Organization.

The cure Is ‘hydroxychloroquine, zinc and zithromax’

In spite of Immanuel’s anecdotal evidence, hydroxychloroquine alone or in combination with other drugs is not a proven treatment (or cure) for COVID-19.

The Food and Drug Administration has not approved hydroxychloroquine for the prevention or treatment of COVID-19. In mid-June, the FDA revoked its emergency authorization for the use of hydroxychloroquine and the related drug chloroquine in treating hospitalized COVID-19 patients.

“It is no longer reasonable to believe that oral formulations of HCQ and CQ may be effective in treating COVID-19, nor is it reasonable to believe that the known and potential benefits of these products outweigh their known and potential risks,” FDA Chief Scientist Denise M. Hinton wrote.

The WHO and the National Institutes of Health have also stopped their hydroxychloroquine studies. Among the safety issues associated with treating COVID-19 patients with hydroxychloroquine include heart rhythm problems, kidney injuries and liver problems.

While some studies have found that the drug could help alleviate symptoms associated with COVID-19, the research is not conclusive. Few studies have been accepted into peer-reviewed journals. And large, randomized trials — the gold standard for clinical trials — are still needed to confirm the findings of studies conducted since the pandemic began.

In the video, Immanuel cited a 2005 study that found chloroquine — not hydroxychloroquine — was “effective in inhibiting the infection and spread of SARS CoV,” the official name for severe acute respiratory syndrome. But the drug was not tested on humans, the authors wrote that more research was needed to make any conclusions, and SARS is different from COVID-19.

‘You don’t need a mask’

Health officials advise everyone to wear a mask in public.

The reason has to do with how the coronavirus spreads. When an infected person coughs or sneezes, they expel respiratory droplets containing the virus. Those droplets can then land in the mouths or noses of people nearby.

Since some people infected with the coronavirus may exhibit no symptoms, public health officials say everyone should cover their face in public — even if they don’t feel sick.

“The spread of COVID-19 can be reduced when cloth face coverings are used along with other preventive measures, including social distancing, frequent handwashing, and cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched surfaces,” according to the CDC.

Our ruling

In a viral video, Immanuel said there is a cure for COVID-19, hydroxychloroquine can treat it, and people don’t need to wear masks to prevent the spread of the virus.

All of those claims are inaccurate. There is no known cure for COVID-19, hydroxychloroquine is not a proven treatment, and public health officials advise everyone to wear a face mask in public.

Immanuel’s statement is False.

Nitin Gadkari inaugurates upstream lane of Bihar’s Gandhi Setu renovated at a cost of Rs 1,742 cr

By: PTI | New Delhi | Published: July 31, 2020 7:38:23 pm

Terming the renovated Mahatma Gandhi Setu in Bihar as “an engineering marvel” and “lifeline” for the masses, Union road minister Nitin Gadkari on Friday said the government is laying a network of bridges and highways to beef up infrastructure in the state.

He also said that multiple steps are being taken to promote economic growth and create employment opportunities in Bihar.

Inaugurating two completed lanes of the 4-lane bridge being renovated at a cost of Rs 1,742 crore through video conference, the road transport and highways minister said that in addition bridge projects worth Rs 10,338 crore are on the anvil on the river Ganga which will change the economy of the state.

He said the renovated Gandhi Setu connecting Hajipur to Patna is one of its kind in the country and the superstructure consumed 66,000 tonnes of steel and will prove as a case study.

Under the project existing concrete structure has been replaced by new steel deck superstructure.

The designing of the bridge has been done by IIT Roorkee and international consultants were consulted for it, he said.

The remaining two lanes of the 5-km long Mahatma Gandhi Setu that connects north Bihar and south Bihar and sees about 1 lakh PCU (passenger car unit) traffic daily will be completed by December 2021, he said.

The bridge benefits Hajipur, Chhapra, Muzzafarpur, Samastipur, Darbhanga, Madhubani, Sitamarhi, Siwan and eastern Uttar Pradesh on the northern side and Patna, Ara, Arwal, Jahanabad, Nalanda, Gaya, Aurangabad and Jharkhand on the southern side, the Minister said.

He said a number of obstacles were being faced in renovation of the existing bridge but ultimately technological research paved way for its renovation.

In addition of the existing old Mahatma Gandhi Setu, a parallel new 5-km long and 4-lane bridge on Ganga will be constructed at a cost of Rs 2,926 crore, he said and added that the work on the project will begin in October and completed by March 2024.

“The new bridge will be the first bridge in the country which will have a span of 242 metres and vessels can pass below it,” he said.

Providing details of the upcoming bridges, the minister said construction will begin on Rs 1,478 crore bridge on Koshi river which will serve as a connectivity link between Bhagalpur and Madhepura besides improving connectivity to Nepal, West Bengal and North Eastern states.

The other bridges include Rs 1,100 crore Vikramshila bridge to connect Bhagalpur and Naugachia and Bhojpur-Buxar bridge on Ganga that will provide connectivity to Uttar Pradesh and will be completed before 2021.

The minister said work will start soon on the Sahebganj bridge where tender had to be cancelled due to Chinese participation.

In addition, for the development of Bihar, Madhubani paintings were being promoted while state products like litchi will be exported.

Emphasis is also on creating a huge network of waterways to bring down logistics cost which is exceptionally high in India at 17-18 per cent as compared to 7-8 per cent in countries like China.

“The Rs 10,338 crore bridges on Ganga will change the economy of Bihar. The government is committed to address issues of poverty unemployment etc,” he said and added that the turnover of village industries which was Rs 88,000 crore is being planned to be taken to Rs 5 lakh crore in two years.

Union Law & Communications and IT Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad stressed the need for a bridge in Kala Diara in Bakhtiyarpur across Ganga.

On the occasion, Union Food and Consumer Affairs Minister Ram Vilas Paswan lauded Gadkari for transforming the face of highways in the country.

Minister of State for Road Transport and Highways VK Singh said Rs 30,000 crore worth of work was being implemented in Bihar. He said Rs 3,800 crore was transferred to farmers’ accounts in lieu of land acquisition.

Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar sought linking Buxar to Varanasi through highways, besides widening of the important national highway stretches.

Cardinals have COVID-19 positives after series in Minnesota

Friday’s matinee in Milwaukee between the St. Louis Cardinals and Brewers at Miller Park was postponed hours before the game due to positive COVID-19 tests, MLB Network and baseball insider Jon Heyman reported.

The Cardinals were scheduled to visit the Brewers for Milwaukee’s home opener but instead will isolate at the team’s hotel.

Heyman reported Friday morning the “Cardinals had positive tests, forcing postponement.”

The Cardinals, per the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, did not go to Miller Park. The team was off Thursday.

However, MLB Network’s Joel Sherman reported the players likely were tested while in Minnesota at the conclusion of the series against the Twins. That could jeopardize games this weekend for the Twins and Cleveland Indians, who played Minnesota on Thursday.

In addition to the National League Central game being scratched from the Friday slate, originally scheduled games involving the Philadelphia Phillies, Miami Marlins, Washington Nationals and Toronto Blue Jays already were postponed because of COVID-19 concerns.

Staff ace Jack Flaherty (1-0, 2.57 ERA), who earned a 5-4 victory over Pittsburgh on Opening Day, was scheduled to start for St. Louis against veteran left-hander Brett Anderson.

Flaherty blanked the Pirates for six innings before allowing two runs in the seventh.

The Special Operations Group of the Rajasthan Police will move the High Court to take the voice sample of Sanjay Jain arrested after being allegedly caught on audio tapes discussing the “plot” to topple the state government.

Jain was produced before a local court on Friday where he refused to give his voice sample, saying he does not have faith in the SOG probe and the Forensic Science Laboratory report can be manipulated.

Sanjay Jain was allegedly acting as a middleman and the Congress claims he is a BJP leader, a charge denied by the opposition party.

“As the accused disagreed to give his voice sample in the lower court, we will take further legal steps and approach the High Court in this matter against him,” ADG (SOG) Ashok Rathore said.

Rathore further said an SOG team has been camping in Manesar of Haryana to trace rebel Congress MLA Bhanwarlal Sharma. He said the team has been acting on the basis of a tip-off.

Jain was arrested on July 17 after he was purportedly heard talking to MLA Sharma and Gajendra Singh, who the Congress claims is union minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat, in the audio tapes. Congress’ chief whip Mahesh Joshi had lodged a complaint with the SOG following which the agency had lodged two FIRs.
