During the Vietnam war, the US Army had all soldiers who were in country take pills to prevent malaria. The Platoon Medic, referred to as “HOTEL”, came around every morning handing out a “little white pill” that soldiers called the “daily-daily,” and once a week he handed out a big orange pill.
That weekly orange pill contained chloroquine phosphate, 500 mg (equivalent to 300 mg of chloroquine), and primaquine phosphate, 79 mg (equivalent to 45 mg of primaquine). The combination of chloroquine and primaquine has proved much more effective—100% effective in servicemen who took the pill regularly—than chloroquine alone for the prevention of malaria due to Plasmodium vivax. However, it had no prophylactic value for malaria due to P falciparum in Southeast Asia. Therefore, those servicemen stationed in Vietnam, where falciparum malaria is endemic, took a daily dose of dapsone, 25 mg, (the daily-daily) in addition to the chloroquine-primaquine pill. It is approved by the FDA for that use.
How does it work? Chloroquine interferes with the degradation of hemoglobin by lysosomes in a malarial infection caused by P. vivax. One of the things that COVID does is degrade hemoglobin. The release of iron caused by hemoglobin destruction is what damages the lungs. This is why it makes complete sense to me that chloroquine containing drugs would be helpful in preventing hemoglobin destruction and high blood iron.
This also explains why COVID patients have such low blood oxygen saturation, and also why some patients with high saturations are having poor outcomes. The hemoglobin that is there is fully saturated, but since so much of it has been destroyed, the red blood cells simply can’t carry enough oxygen to meet metabolic demands.
Reading the study found here makes me realize that there are a large number of problems and target cells for COVID. I am convinced that this is a biological warfare weapon.
