Dr. Stephen Smith COVID -19 – Dr. Stephen Smith Hydroxychloroquine
On April 1, 2020 while appearing on “The Ingraham Angle” Dr. Stephen said that he was optimistic about the use of Hydroxychloroquine and antibiotics to treat COVID-19 patients, calling it “a game-changer.” He said “I think this is the beginning of the end of the pandemic. I’m very serious.”
Dr. Smith said he was treating 72 COVID-19 patients and that he had been treating “everybody with hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin [an antibiotic]. We’ve been doing so for a while.”
He alleged that not a single COVID-19 patient of his that has been on the hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin regimen for five days or more has had to be intubated.
“The chance of that occurring by chance, according to my sons Leon and Hunter who did some stats for me, are .000-something, it’s ridiculously low.”
He went on to explain “intubation means actually putting a tube down into your trachea and then you’re placed on the ventilator for respiratory support.”
