In a time of extreme sorrow, with so many across the world afflicted with the coronavirus, we could all use a little hope. As we continue to work to find solutions for COVID-19, we interview and follow up daily with our medical experts who are having success with various medical combinations. Over the past week we have heard from physicians who have been trying a combination of hydroxychloroquine, azithromycin or zithromax, aka the Z-pack, and are seeing some promising results. Some examples are:
MARGARET – a nurse in NJ, who is still hospitalized, and has taken the combo of hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin, and says her only side effect was minor G.I issues. The combo did knock out her fever, and she is hopeful that she will be released from the hospital tomorrow.
TONI – in North Carolina, her husband Jeff has Coronavirus. He is being treated by this combo as well. Toni’s husband Jeff was released from the hospital yesterday. He started on the combo Friday morning, 3/20, after being hospitalized Thursday night. Yesterday, Monday 3/23, was the first day he felt significantly better. He has been prescribed the medication for two more days.
RIO – is in a Florida Hospital, he was only given anti-Malaria medication. He had said goodbye to family and friends Friday night, 3/20, thinking he would die. A friend suggested the medication combo, and he started it Friday night. He felt significantly better by early Saturday morning and is hoping to be released from the hospital soon. Rio joined the Hannity Radio Show yesterday and spoke to Sean about his experience. You can listen to that interview here.
GREG MUNDIS JR. – Based in Missouri as an orthopedic spine surgeon, Dr. Mundis’ parents are both being treated with anti-malaria medication. His mom, Sandra, is unable to use a z-pack because of a previous bad reaction, and dad, Greg Sr., was already on other strong antibiotics (vancomycin and Zosyn).
Greg was expecting his dad to pass away, but then he started treatment on this and he thinks he has a strong chance of fully recovering now. He expects his father to be in the hospital for one to two more weeks.
His mom is hospitalized and stable. She has higher risk factors than his dad. They’re taking her day-by-day, and are hoping to keep her from getting worse.
Please also listen here to Sean’s interview with Dr. Brian McDonough, who is currently hosting a daily podcast on the Coronavirus, is a Clinical Professor of Family Medicine at Temple University School of Medicine and known to New York audiences as Medical Editor at 1010 WINS since 1996 and heard daily as the Medical Editor KYW News Radio Philly since 1989 and Dr. Mehmet Oz, Cardiac Surgeon and Host of The Dr. Oz Show, from yesterday’s show. These medicines and their potential effect on COVID 19 were discussed extensively.
