On Thursday, May 28, the Russian Ministry of Health announced that the use of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) will not be prohibited. This drug, which has been supported by various researchers and scientific studies as a treatment for the coronavirus, has also been recommended by U.S. President Donald Trump as a potential treatment.
As RT, an international news channel, notes, the Russian Ministry of Health website specified that while this drug for the treatment of patients with the disease is continuously being monitored, no measures would be implemented to ban it.
“Several drugs are used to treat patients with COVID-19 [CCP Virus]. Among these drugs is hydroxychloroquine, which, due to its anti-inflammatory effect and effect on the immune system, has been used for decades to treat malaria, rheumatoid arthritis, and systemic lupus erythematosus,” the Russian ministry statement said.
Russia’s decision contrasts with the decision of some European countries, such as France, Italy, and Belgium, which banned the use of hydroxychloroquine following comments by the World Health Organization, which has been questioned for hiding relevant information about the development of the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) Virus pandemic that has caused the death of millions of people around the world.
According to Reuters, last Monday the WHO decided to suspend a large-scale trial of hydroxychloroquine arguing the alleged “safety problems” that were involved in the research.
The Reuters also noted that a UK regulator on Wednesday announced the suspension of a separate trial, less than a week before it began, which was led by Oxford University and funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
Gates, co-founder of the software company Microsoft, has been one of the leading public figures who, under the guise of eugenics, which seeks to deliberately modify human genetic traits, supports the idea of a reduction in the world’s population.
In one of his most recent and controversial statements, Gates released a proposal to create a digital certificate to identify those who receive the CCP Virus vaccine once it is manufactured. Those who receive it would wear a “quantum dot tattoo” that is “a bit of dye that is invisible to the naked eye.
The infrared-readable tattoo would store a digital file that could be read by a scanner or smartphone. This quantum dot tattoo has already been developed at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and was funded by Microsoft.
Meanwhile, hydroxychloroquine treatment has been endorsed by thousands of doctors around the world. According to an international survey that worked with 2,171 doctors, 37% rated the drug as “the most appropriate therapy” for combating CCP Virus disease, The New York Post reported.
The Russian Ministry of Health reported that recommendations for the implementation of hydroxychloroquine come from several foreign studies that demonstrate its effectiveness and it has been included in several national and international clinical guidelines, including Russia.
“According to the results of monitoring the safety of hydroxychloroquine drugs during the COVID-19 [CCP Virus] pandemic in the Russian Federation, there were no fatal outcomes associated with rhythm disturbance in HCQ patients,” the Russian Ministry of Health announced.
As indicated by RT, the drug that is known to be frequently used against malaria became more popular after President Trump recommended its use as a possible treatment for coronavirus on May 25.
The WHO, which definitively concluded funding ties with the United States after a recent announcement by President Trump, has strongly discouraged the use of hydroxychloroquine for the CCP Virus disease, arguing that studies related to it are still in an “experimental” stage.
