Infectious disease physician touts ‘game-changer’ anti-malarial drugs as ‘beginning of end’ of pandemic

(USA Features) An infectious disease doctor who has been treating coronavirus patients with a combination of two antimalarial drugs, hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin, said they are “game changers” that will help bring about a quicker end to the pandemic.

In a Wednesday interview with Fox News’ Laura Ingraham, Dr. Stephen Smith said when a patient goes into respiratory failure from COVID-19, the person is intubated – a tube is placed in their trachea so they can breathe — and they are connected to a ventilator.

“No person who has received five days or more of the [drug] combination has been intubated,” he said. “The chance of that occurring by chance … are .000-something — it’s ridiculously low, no matter how you look at it,” Smith said.



“It’s an absolute game-changer. I think this data goes to really support the French data,” he added. “Laura, I think this is the beginning of the end of the pandemic.”

At President Donald Trump’s direction, the Food and Drug Administration has issued a limited emergency authorization for the use of the two antimalarial drugs to combat coronavirus.

During a recent news briefing, the president said, “Let’s see how it works. It may. It may not.”
