HCQ effective according to ISALA
HCQ proves effective according to regional hospital chain ISala in the netherlands

Dutch general practisioner Rob Elens

Earlier, dutch general practitioner “Rob Elens” cured over 10 patients with a cocktail containing zinc and HCQ (hydroxychloroquine), among other ingredients.
It’s especially the HCQ that helps bringing the infection down. The trick was to administer it as soon as possible, not when it’s too late and the patient is already in intensive care.
Furthermore, the other ingredients are important for helping the HCQ do it’s work effectively. 
Finally, doctor Rob Elens took important precautionary measures to rule out problems with the heart and adjusted the prescriptions accordingly.
And of course, unlike some studies circulating around discrediting the effectiveness of HCQ, administering the right amount is crucial.
Just like with any medicine – not too much, and not too little.

He started his own website, with all the information for doctors but also for people interested in (preventitative) self care.
Visit: www.zelfzorgcovid19.nl (you might have to translate it, but it contains lessons learned from evidence based, successful practise).

American doctor Brian Tyson

At the same time, since this is the start of the “pandemic” world wide, American doctor Brian Tyson affirms the practise with HCQ is effective.
So much so, he didn’t claim to have “cured” ten patients, not even hundreds, no he said to have cured 1700 patients.
Why put “cured” in expression marks? Because it’s unclear how much of this control group would heal by itself.
But the numbers doctor Brian Tyson shows are very remarkable. Especially in the light of the model the WHO circulated and the calculated rate of mortality.
Turned out, in this control group. an average of 0,00% would die after being infected. That’s according to this doctors (successful) practice, administering another HCQ-mix.
As also the biggest testing facility in the region in California, he tested over 15000 people. 
So the ones that tested positive counted  a total of 1700 people.
And  just to be clear, none of them died or rather all of them where “cured” – within days. 
Question: what does that mean to the actual mortality rate of the virus in relation to the WHO model?
It’s unclear which scientific articles have been published about the findings of this practitioner.
The original video of his remarkable story is made available though (see added).


Scientific findings

Dutch scientists dr. Lammers and dr. Groeneveld published their findings on HCQ and showed over 50% drop in intensive care necessity for patients taken in and being administered HCQ.

Here’s the original news article from dutch regional hospital chain Isala: link.

And here’s the (peer-reviewed) scientific article published in the International Journal of Infectious Diseases: link.

It’s called “Early Hydroxychloroquine but not Chloroquine use reduces ICU admission in COVID-19 patients”.

NOS, the primary public dutch news agency

The publication in the scientific community as well as in the news online did rectify earlier accusations pointed at dutch doctor Rob Elens.

Even the NOS could’nt get around the fact that it actually does show HCQ works to a certain, significant extent.
They had to publish this important news article on the matter.



QUOTED From the REFERED scientific ISALA paper
  • Following a global push for the use of hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine, there is ongoing discussion about the effectivity of these drugs.
  • The findings of this observational study provide crucial data on a potential protective effect of hydroxychloroquine in non-ICU, hospitalized, COVID-19 patients.
  • Early treatment with HCQ on the first day of admission is associated with a 53% reduction in risk of transfer to the ICU for mechanical ventilation.
  • This protective effect was not observed for chloroquine; therefore, these drugs cannot be regarded as interchangeable.
