In India, announced the "line" from countries ordering an antimalarial drug

A report was published on Indian television, which says that every day there is a growing list of countries that have applied for the purchase of batches of such a drug as hydroxychloroquine. This drug is used in medicine to treat patients with malaria.


First you need to say a few words about malaria itself. According to the WHO, at the beginning of the century, the incidence of this infectious disease in the world reached half a billion people a year. In this case, the mortality rate reached 3 million. However, with the receipt of a number of drugs, as well as with the start of testing highly effective vaccines, the death rates for malaria began to fall. According to the latest data, they have more than doubled, but 1-1,5 million deaths from malaria per year are huge.

On Indian TV, it was reported that, in connection with information about studies that allegedly led to the conclusion that if hydroxychloroquine does not treat a new coronavirus, it may facilitate the course of the disease, and a queue has been drawn up for pharmaceutical companies in India to order the drug. And this is despite the fact that the drug has a number of side effects.

It got to the point that even the enemy, Islamabad, turned to New Delhi. So that the antimalarial drug does not go to other countries, Pakistan decided to impose a complete ban on its export. Earlier, the United States, Brazil, and a number of other countries purchased medicines in India.

It is important to note that there are no clinical trials of the above drug confirmed by WHO for the care of patients with coronavirus so far. However, demand has already been provoked, which is what the Indian media say.

For reference: as of April 15, 2020, the confirmed cases of COVID-19 in India were 12322. This is about half as low as in Russia, given the fact that the population of India is about 9 times larger in number. Relatively small number of cases in India, experts explain the extremely low coverage testing of the population.

    If in our news, next to the "nightmare figures" of coronavirus deceased in Moscow "yesterday" was a line on the number of deaths in Moscow on the same day for other reasons (suicides, murders, traffic accidents, injuries and other recorded deaths), the population would also be very much surprised .... Remember the advertisement of car insurance and traffic rules? - "Every month, up to 30 thousand people die on Russian roads .." And how much more from singed vodka ..

      It's just that epidemics have explosive growth in danger.
      I think everyone at school studied geometric progression?

        I agree, they have ... but even more prominent is the most undisguised manipulation and escalation of hysteria and turning their affairs around the world under this sauce .. Here’s yesterday’s story from the Leningrad Region .. - In the hostel of the migrant builders Revealed the crown. Special forces rushed right there, the security forces cordoned off the territory, the EMERCOM put up a huge TENT in the yard in a minute, they stuffed army bunk beds into it, and drove them all together - both sick and unclearly healthy or not .. like herrings in a barrel .. And they guard so that didn’t run away .. The builders, of course, were illegally without exception .. Then what? To treat them at whose expense? send sick home? Wait until they come up with their own shit? For a moment, there’s a three-story big hostel .. So the news serves .. And tell me, why is there nothing about the fate of the Syrian crowds and other refugees living in camps in France and Germany in the tragic stories from Europe? Do they have immunity to coronavirus? How is the self-isolation regime of the army of thousands of Moscow homeless? They do not spread the infection, unlike the townsfolk? 80% of the world's population in one way or another will get this infection. No quarantines will save. But people can’t just sit at home without specific prohibitions and orders, having lost their jobs and means of subsistence .. It all reminds me of privatization in our country - they gave out vouchers and stopped paying people .. People sold their vouchers for a piece of bread, and the country appeared the owners .. Maybe this is just a new stage of privatization, not just factories, but entire concrete states?

          Builders are migrants, negroes from Senegal have appeared out of nowhere in Moscow.

      "A body with many fatal stab wounds was found .. But the coronavirus test showed a positive result" ...
      ALL medications hit our "liver" filter.

    Well, why did they say that? Yesterday they took away the masks, from each other, and now they will take away the preparations. And I can drop a tactical landing, to capture the medical factory.
    The drugs will be declared victims of tyranny and the liberation operation will begin.

    The excitement began after Trump, it is not clear for what reason, he mentioned this drug at one of the briefings and urged him to use it.
    Earlier, the United States, Brazil, and a number of other countries purchased medicines in India.
    There was a plot that the United States threatened India with sanctions after which it was forced to sell the drug to the Americans, although they themselves had problems with the quantity at that time.
