A 90-year-old New York woman has recovered from coronavirus after doctors, desperate to offer treatment for her severe symptoms, used the malaria drug popularized by President Donald Trump
Anna Fortunato, a 90-year-old woman living in Long Island, recovered from coronavirus after 13 days in the hospital, ABC 7 reported. Fortunato began feeling ill on March 13, a Friday, and told her daughter that she only had a sore throat and assumed she had a cold.
In desperation, Fortunato’s doctors administered an anti-malaria drug repeatedly touted by President Donald Trump. Fortunato was eventually discharged after being hospitalized for 13 days.
It was also reported: Michigan State House Rep. Karen Whitsett, who represents District 9 in Detroit, said Monday that she credits hydroxychloroquine and President Donald Trump with saving her from the COVID-19 coronavirus.
Meanwhile The National File, exclusively reported David Bryan keyboard player from Bon Jovi credited Hydroxychloroquine with helping him recover from COVID-19. The musician who wrote the musical Diana, on the life of the late Princess of Wales, was working daily when he got sick. The show was 3 weeks into previews when Broadway was shut down.
“Three weeks ago Sunday, I was in New York working on my Diana musical…and then they shut down Broadway. I was fine Thursday, Friday, Saturday then on Sunday it hit me. I thought I had a flu. 101 degree fever, chills and body aches. I went into bed and was sweating like crazy and it was a nasty flu, but my wife was making sure I had soup and water. By Wednesday it seemed to get into my lungs. I was coughing stuff up. I called up my doctor Dr. Mike Rothberg, and he tested me for Corona. Then on Saturday he said you’re quarantined you have it.”
“He’s a very good doctor, and very astute doctor. He said I’m going to start you on (anti-bacterial) Zithromax and hydroxychloroquine,” Bryan said. Bryan noted that his wife also had Coronavirus but was asymptomatic. Bryan began taking 2 hydroxychloroquine pills per day plus a pill of Zithromax.
“I just started taking that drug combo including hydroxychloroquine. I’ve taken it before because I’ve played in more than 160 countries with Bon Jovi, so you take it before you go to a country with malaria. I took it. I was a pre-med student at Rutgers,” Bryan said
The fever stopped, then it went a few nights of no fever” but with continuing night sweats, Bryan said.
“I’m still really tired. I had some zinc and was taking that as well,” Bryan said.
“Here I am, three and a half week later. I still have a little bit of a headache. Yesterday was the first day where my headache went to half, then today it went to a quarter. Tomorrow it will probably be down to an eighth,” Bryan said.
He also told The National File: his friend, Broadway actor Nick Cordero, is on a ventilator with Coronavirus, but “they gave (hydroxychloroquine/Chloroquine) to him through his feeding tube and his vitals are turning around.”
As reports like this continue to come out, some politicians are still using the fact that Trump touted this drug to score political points with the rabid, foaming anti-Trump left.
Washington Times reported:
Ohio state Rep. Tavia Galonski said she wants President Trump to be prosecuted in The Hague for “crimes against humanity” over his promotion of the antimalarial drug hydroxychloroquine as a treatment for the coronavirus.
“I can’t take it anymore,” Ms. Galonski, a Democrat, tweeted Sunday night after Mr. Trump’s coronavirus task force briefing.
“I’ve been to The Hague,” she continued. “I’m making a referral for crimes against humanity tomorrow. Today’s press conference was the last straw. I know the need for a prosecution referral when I see one.”
We are stating to see a continued pattern, stories that the drug is working and showing results, and deranged politicians who despise Trump so strongly, they are ignoring these stories to carry on this controversy as long as possible
