Just to expand a bit on what you just wrote, HCQ by itself has very little direct effect on Covid19. What HCQ does is attach to a cell wall and open a conduit that allows zinc into the cell (a zinc ionophore). Cell membranes block zinc because zinc interferes with RNA replication inside the cell. The cell’s inner mechanisms do not distinguish the cell’s RNA from Covid19 RNA, so both are replicated and the virus multiplies. HCQ gets zinc inside and inhibits RNA replication. The VA did not give zinc to patients, plus they administered HCQ after organs were already damaged. Several countries have Covid19 hospital protocols that recommend HCQ as the first response to patients in the early stages of the disease. Some countries advise starting with Quercetin, another cheap zinc ionophore. Quercetin is available over the counter and on Amazon. I take a small dose daily as a prophylactic, along with zinc, D3, C, selenium and a few other supplements. This is all discussed on Medcram, a respected educational site for medical professionals. My doctor knows my daily regimen and I get checkups every three months.
