Breaking! COVID-19 Drugs: US FDA Drug Trial Concludes That Most Drugs Being Used Including Favipiravir, Lopinavir, Ritonavir, Chloroquine Has No Effects On COVID-19
: A study released by medical and drug researchers from the Laboratory of Vector-Borne Viral Diseases and Center for Biologics Evaluation, U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Maryland, has concluded that most of the antivirals used as experimental drugs in the last four months basically had no effect on treating COVID-19. https://www.biorxiv.org/content/10.1101/2020.04.29.067983v1.full.pdf+html
This is shock to many worldwide as many countries, health authorities, medical institutions and medical doctors were making lots of claims in the last few months about discovering treatments protocols or that they had cured patients using some of these drugs in their protocols.
In reality what they were doing was treating patients with dangerous placebos as most of these drugs are highly toxic and dangerous and to a certain extent, a majority of deaths of critical patients could be attributed to some of these drugs. Furthermore as a result of critical shortages, certain countries were buying it at inflated prices and in some cases even corruption was involved.
Even the drug that the Chinese government was promoting around the world but which they themselves were not using, ie Avigan or Favipiravir (Favilavir) has been shown to be totally ineffective in treating COVID-19 according to the US FDA study.
Many ignorant doctors and health authorities from various countries were advocating the use of these drugs from China without due diligence and in some cases China was using it as a bargaining chip for trade and diplomatic issues. https://www.thailandmedical.news/news/does-the-teratogenic-drug-avigan-favipiravir-really-work-on-covid-19-or-is-it-just-a-placebo-that-china-wants-to-use-as-a-bargaining-chip
It must also be noted that many drug studies from China were basically manipulated by third parties and unfortunately many countries trusted the Chinese who have very little ethics, to use the treatment protocols that they claimed worked.
The study showed that almost all the antivirals that were used as experimental drugs from Chloroquine, Ledipasvir, Neifinavir, Danoprevie, Lopinavir, Ritonavir, Tenofovir, Favilavir(Favipiravir) had no effect in treating the COVID-19 disease.
To make matters worse some of these drugs that were being used for the last 4 months were highly toxic could cause heart failures such as chloroquine and some were teratogenic like favipiravir and while the majority of the HIV antiviral drugs were not only cardiotoxic but also hepatoxic and renaltoxic.
The legal industry is also abuzz about investigating and planning suits against doctors, hospitals, health authorities and governments who had used these drugs without proper patient’s consents and the next of kin of the thousands who died are being advised to seek legal recourse.
To date the only drug combination in drug repurposing studies that seems promising are the combo dugs Invermectin, Colchicine and Bactrim along with Traditional Chinese Medicine formulations. However proper research and clinical trials are warranted before they can be accepted as approved drugs for COVID-19. Both are relatively safe drugs in the doses that are being used and are already approved drugs for the treatments of other medical conditions and are not highly toxic unlike the antivirals that were being used the last four months.. https://www.thailandmedical.news/news/covid-19-drugs-study-shows-that-critical-covid-19-patients-with-lung-injury-requiring-ventilation-benefitted-from-ivermectin
