So 0.3% of his patients died, which is consistent with the 0.5-1% mortality rate recorded in a plethora of seroprevalence studies...

I like the 84% reduction in hospitalizations stat. What's he comparing it to? And considering he's the PCP and he's telling them not to go to the hospital until the last second, it says nothing about the actual medical condition of his patients.
When you find yourself agreeing with me more often than not, it's time for a cheshbon hanefesh.

I suspect 16% of his patients are ending up in the hospitals

Isnít that typical for COVID, especially if patients are being advised to stay home for as long as possible.

Not quite. The patients he's referring to are those with symptoms.

There have been no studies refuting his data.

1) Took 200mg hydroxychloroquine tablets twice a day with meals.
2) Took Zinc tablets (usually 220mg)
and
3) Began this regimen within 4 Ė 5 days of onset of symptoms.

Every test or study or trial that failed, all were non-compliant with either # 2 or # 3. Or both.

If someone has has a study that disproves it, Id love to see it.

He was also treating people as presumed positives with no tests, so all his numbers are bunk. Considering how many people thought they had it then, and have found out in the last month or so that they never had it... Nissei nissim that none of his patients had heart issues that reacted badly to the hydroxychloriquin.

Thats right. His protocol was rooted in early treatment, so couldnt afford waiting around when testing was scarce. Sure, put his numbers aside, but bottom line is that his community did not get hit like similar Jewish communities. Not sure why people love to hate on him.

That's true AFAIK, however his whole treatment is based on Raoult in Nice who used it in hospitalized patients, so there is no evidence to suggest that it works either.

Not sure why people love to hate on him.
Because he's a complete quack. Once he broadcasted to the world that 90% of KJ has Covid based on extrapolation from test results his saw, he lost all credibility eternally.

The medicine may work, it doesn't exonerate him.

Says who? For all we know he's counting asymptomatic carriers that took it after exposure. His whole theory is that if you take the med it may prevent symptoms in the first place...

Sure, put his numbers aside, but bottom line is that his community did not get hit like similar Jewish communities.
What makes you think so? I highly doubt that's true on an age adjusted basis.

METHODS
We conducted a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial across the United States and parts of Canada testing hydroxychloroquine as postexposure prophylaxis. We enrolled adults who had household or occupational exposure to someone with confirmed Covid-19 at a distance of less than 6 ft for more than 10 minutes while wearing neither a face mask nor an eye shield (high-risk exposure) or while wearing a face mask but no eye shield (moderate-risk exposure). Within 4 days after exposure, we randomly assigned participants to receive either placebo or hydroxychloroquine (800 mg once, followed by 600 mg in 6 to 8 hours, then 600 mg daily for 4 additional days). The primary outcome was the incidence of either laboratory-confirmed Covid-19 or illness compatible with Covid-19 within 14 days.
RESULTS
We enrolled 821 asymptomatic participants. Overall, 87.6% of the participants (719 of 821) reported a high-risk exposure to a confirmed Covid-19 contact. The incidence of new illness compatible with Covid-19 did not differ significantly between participants receiving hydroxychloroquine (49 of 414 [11.8%]) and those receiving placebo (58 of 407 [14.3%]); the absolute difference was −2.4 percentage points (95% confidence interval, −7.0 to 2.2; P=0.35). Side effects were more common with hydroxychloroquine than with placebo (40.1% vs. 16.8%), but no serious adverse reactions were reported.
CONCLUSIONS
After high-risk or moderate-risk exposure to Covid-19, hydroxychloroquine did not prevent illness compatible with Covid-19 or confirmed infection when used as postexposure prophylaxis within 4 days after exposure. (Funded by David Baszucki and Jan Ellison Baszucki and others; ClinicalTrials.gov number, NCT04308668. opens in new tab.)


Still does not refute claims re severity of symptoms.

Last I heard, he lost one patient. All the other stuff is irrelevant. If it's indeed the case, that he lost only one patient from a pool of patients that were either high risk or presented difficulty breathing, how can you not listen to what he has to say? So yeah, he extrapolated incorrectly. Who cares? If his protocol is indeed saving lives, that's all that matters. Unless you say he's lying regarding the number of deaths. But that should be relatively easy to prove.

I never saw him claim he only lost 1 patient. I heard him say he treated 900 people, so 0.3% would be 3(.3) dead. I also donít trust that he treated so many patients or that he knows of all of their outcomes.

I would probably take HCQ if I got it; I just canít stand him.

Be sure to pair it with zinc. Worthless on its own as has been proven in studies.

Now this moron wants to slow down testing. What is he trying to do. Get 200k deaths?  >:( >:( >:(

Fauci literally testified today in front of Congress that nobody was ever asked to slow down testing. It was a joke.
