🚨BREAKING: #China says a flu drug approved in #Japan was effective in a study of 340 #coronavirus patients.

Lung X-rays showed improvements in ~91% of patients treated with #favipiravir, compared to 62% of those not treated with drug.

@thespybrief
theguardian.com/world/2020/mar…
Favipiravir inhibits RNA-dependent RNA polymerase, an enzyme that makes copies of the virus’ RNA (not DNA) genome. RNA viruses need this enzyme to make new viral particles, so it’s quite plausible that this drug IS effective against #coronavirus.😃

I worked to develop a similar drug (galidesivir, BCX4430) with the same mechanism of action as #favipiravir, and both drugs show activity against a broad spectrum of different RNA viruses.

Entirely plausible that #favipiravir is active against #COVID19.😃

It's right to question the current over-the-top freak-out over the #Coronavirus avidly pushed by politicians, selected corps & their MSM media adjuncts - all demanding that *we the people* give Gov carte blanche powers to shut down sections of economy, devalue the currency etc...
2) ... based on what threat exactly? They have NO IDEA what the real Case Fatality Rate (CFR) is. So there's no way to accurately compare just how 'deadly' it is in relation to other emergencies. Hence, how can Gov justify such extreme lockdown measures? Answer: they cannot...
3) It's important to note the initial hype used to push this idea of a "global pandemic" was essentially fake news about the CFR of the Spanish Flu of 1918. Our MSM ran with junk science to over-exaggerate, project a false picture of #COVID19 fatality: wired.com/story/covid-19…

It is time for one long #Coronavirus update. I have been resisting doing this as (1) I do not want to add to the hysteria & the panic & (2) I don't believe in doomsday predictions. Moreover, things have been moving so fast, who knows what's what. BUT it's time for real talk...
Overall, #Coronavirus (the outbreak of #COVID19) is REAL. The effects on your daily life from the fallout will be REAL. The impact society, economics, & politics in 2020 will be severe & REAL. None of this is Fake News. None of this should be downplayed. (2/
People who are trying to silence REAL discussion are doing a disservice to the public interest. This is a 9/11 & 2008 level event in terms of its impact on domestic & international dynamics. This thread is not about creating panic but encouraging a smarter response. (3/

Globally, about 3.4% of reported COVID-19 cases have died. By comparison, seasonal flu generally kills far fewer than 1% of those infected. Check out the Virus & Human death rates -

1. ELECTION MEDDLING.
Watching @TheDemocrats get all bent over #Russia interfering in our elections is amusing.
We’ve been doing it to each other for 100 years. Yeah... 😂

The US actually has a whole division of the #CIA dedicated to #ElectionMeddling.
This throws a little water on #Dems Fake outrage.
It’s called SAC or Special Activities center.
@SenSchumer knows this.
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special_A…
3 If that wasn’t enough, within SAC we have SOG, the Special Operations Group.
(Who makes up these names?)
Guess what they do??
Tactical paramilitary operations.
YUP! 😉
They use brute Force if needed but also Arm and Train rebels.
The most secret #CIA Div.
Think #Syria 👍🏻
