More covid early treatment successes

Published: October 1, 2020

In recent weeks, several more covid early treatment successes based on zinc, vitamin D and HCQ have been reported:

  • Zinc: A Spanish study presented at the ECCVID conference found that low plasma zinc levels (below 50 mcg/dl) increased the risk of in-hospital covid death by 130%.
  • Vitamin D: A Spanish RCT (randomized controlled trial) found that high-dose vitamin D reduced the risk of requiring intensive care by 96%.
  • HCQ: A Dutch study published in the International Journal of Infectious Diseases found a 53% risk reduction in terms of ICU admission and ventilation of covid patients.
  • HCQ: A US meta-study (preprint) found a 24% risk reduction in covid early treatment.
  • HCQ: A Spanish meta-study (preprint) found a 20% risk reduction in covid prophylaxis.
  • HCQ: A study by the European Heart Rhythm Association found that HCQ is safe for covid patients in every clinical setting (confirming earlier results in malaria and AID treatment).

The following diagram shows that among high-powered HCQ trials, only the WHO Recovery UK trial – which used lethal overdoses in patients with late-stage covid – found negative results.
