More on chloroquine:
The real "magic bullet" in the game is the *Zinc* ... it prevents the virus' RNA from making an RNA dependent polymerase, which goes on to hijack your cell's replication machinery.
The chloroquine "merely" serves as a method for the zinc to enter your cells (normally it's stopped by the cell walls).

This video explains it:


and here are the relevant journal articles. This behavior was noted a few years ago during the original SARS epidemic.
Zinc as the operative agent: https://journals.plos.org/plospathog...l.ppat.1001176
Chloroquin as a Zinc ionophore: https://journals.plos.org/plosone/ar...type=printable
Applying them to the coronavirus: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/32075365/

... the research is multi-national ... China had the most SARS experience.

Korea recommended using it, but they don't have chloroquine in-country ... so they had to use hydrochloroquine.

This is another survey of where chloroquine trials are underway: https://www.clinicaltrialsarena.com/...oroquine-data/

Meanwhile, here's a different look at how to understand the infection curves:

p.s. in that last video, you'll see something dropping off the trend line fairly early ... that's the Diamond Princess cruise ship.

sarchasm
the intellectual gap between the person who makes a sarcastic joke and those who don’t get it
Yes, I didn't get it or No, I didn't get it.

No comment, might get changed with elderly abuse.
