Australia is set to receive an international supply of anti-malaria drugs, as the national number of coronavirus cases surpass 5,000.

Multiple trials around Australia and throughout the world are testing the effectiveness of the anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine as a coronavirus treatment.

Federal Health Minister Greg Hunt has confirmed the nation is well equipped to deal with a rise in cases, as the government works towards quadrupling the nation’s ventilator capacity.

We’ve known about hydroxychloroquine since January and have seen the undisputed success elsewhere, so why is this just being talked about now

In china and Japan you show up for a test they give you HCQ before you even get the results. Why flatten the curve when you can floor it! Damn I'm peed right off with the Australian government. They need to realise the only reason their on power is because the other option is EVEN WORSE!

It's the Zinc that is taken with it that supports the imune system to fend off viruses. Helps with Zinc absorption.

I've used this malaria drug, for lupus, it's safe as houses!
I used it "long term". Remember, you only need this HCQ treatment, for 5 to 10 days.

Oh, the US mainstream media and the Democrats ARE NOT going to be happy hearing this. The Trumpster had the nerve to mention it as a possible help... they've been lost in a deranged void ever since. And yeah... a US man went and drank aquarium cleaner because it had one of the anti malaria drugs in its ingredients. Insane. Trump got blamed for that.
So, no one assume, someone, somewhere, isn't going to have a crack at lice shampoo. You'd be giving people too much credit.

We need to build up our capacity to create hydroxychloroquine and other useful chemicals here in Australia. The fight against this virus will be a long slog and we can't rely on imports of the stuff as the number of cases worldwide continues to increase.

So does this mean we can reopen the car manufacturer plants in South Australia, repurpose them and start making ventilators? And in the event that more beds are needed we will reopen old or semi-closed hospital wards?

About bloody time. An American man on deaths door was saved by this treatment. He said within a short time he could breath and his health returned. Quinine. It's in tonic water, but you'd have to drink a lot. Great news Australia.

They're saying that there's no need to use masks. There's no need to buy hydroxychloroquine. Do they really think people are stupid?? 😷👃💩💩
