We do not endorse any potential cure for anything. Many people say that indeed Sailing Anarchy is a virus, and there doesn't seem to be any cure for it! Per usual, we just like to put content out there that people may find of interest

You may have heard by now that there is significant hope with treatment to be available for the coronavirus. This was little known just a week ago. Here is a piece about what the treatment is, what are the current indications about its effectiveness, and how it is being progressively adopted in various jurisdictions. It also reflects about the implications of this development for controlling the pandemic.

This is informational, and does not intend to provide false hopes. All the sources are quoted, so check for yourself and form your own opinion. We will know more in a matter of weeks about the treatment’s actual efficacy. Yet, this may well be a game changer and may help to control this pandemic faster than initially thought.

There is a shift of paradigm regarding how to deal with the raging coronavirus pandemic. Treatment is on its way. And it takes the form of a very cheap combination of an anti-malaria drug and antibiotics.

There was a story on NPR last night about Lupus patients who can't get their prescriptions filled due to lack of supply - because doctors and dentists are hoarding the drug for themselves and their families, was the claim.

ABC news Chicago had a similar story.  Story also said the Walgreens was limiting all new scrips to a 14 day supply, a 30 day supply for all current/pre-existing scrips, and converting all 90 day supplies to 30 days.

This is NOT TESTED.   It's not utter bullshit, but it's not tested.

https://www.thelancet.com/journals/laninf/article/PIIS1473-3099(06)70361-9/fulltext

Chloroquinone does have antivirus properties. It's been used in HIV and influenza treatment, and there is SOME research on it's effect on SARS

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16115318?dopt=Abstract

A quote from that paper

"CONCLUSION:  Chloroquine is effective in preventing the spread of SARS CoV in cell culture."

IN CELL CULTURE.....not in living organisms.

This is BY NO MEANS conclusive, and there is NO FFFFF'ing way there is enough of it to dose tens of millions of people. Getting a hold of a bottle or a pile of pills and sucking it down is a VERY BAD IDEA.

And my wife pointed out that the antibiotic probably would help with any secondary bronchial infections brought on by the virus.

But this whole things is mostly conjecture.
