Six hundred thousand doses of a drug used to treat COVID-19 patients could be in North Carolina hospitals this weekend after a whirlwind effort by a pharmaceutical maker, state officials and two men from north Mecklenburg County.

This week the New Jersey-based Amneal Pharmaceuticals donated the drug hydroxychloroquine to the N.C. Department of Health and Human Services.

“The donation is extremely important,” said Amanda Moore, pharmacist for the Division of Public Health. “Right now our state pharmacies are seeing almost complete back-order status, and they’re only able to get it in limited supply.”

Great news, and here's hoping that it's effectiveness is borne out in treatment! But it's worth noting and stressing that this is a treatment, it is not a cure. It has shown significant progress in helping, but hasn't yet been widely tested. There's also the very real and very dangerous potential side effects. It is our utmost hope and wish that efforts to speed vaccines to testing are fruitful, and our populations are able to flatten the curve as much as possible to give medical researchers a chance.

It came from this Professor Didier Raoult in France...

However he seems to have encountered opposition as out lined in this article...

I would strongly caution against taking any information from non-trusted sources, of which "Humans are Free" blog could be considered one. (A quick look at the About Us/Authors section raises warnings about objectivity.) Your best bet is to refer to guidance from the CDC, NIH, WHO, and health officials on the subject.
