Re: Malaria & Covid-19

Hmmm, somewhat more tongue in cheek

Green Tea EGCG & Quercetin are also zinc ionophores

Taking chelated Zinc 25 mg/day followed by Green Tea may also have a negative effect on Covid-19 replication

I can't find any studies, mind ;)

There are double figure studies complete or under way in China, this news article is dated February 23 This may be a factor in explaining why South...

Re: Malaria & Covid-19

Both chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine appear to be zinc ionophores. It is the zinc that interferes with a virus. The Corona Virus is an RNA virus. When a virus goes into the cytosol, the ribosomes which read the code of the mRNA can’t tell the difference between the virus RNA and cellular RNA. So...

Re: Malaria & Covid-19

I, like Dr Spencer was taken with the inverse correlation between number of confirmed cases of Covid-19 and the prevalence of malaria (= high % of population ingesting chloroquine). Of course, correlation does not mean causation, but it's pretty convincing. Having read the papers it's also clear tha...

Chloroquine is an inexpensive, globally available drug that has been in widespread human use since 1945 against malar...
