Vital/Censored/Suppressed: Price Mysteriously Doubled for chloroquine as Trump Names it “Cure”

Introduction:

We are seeing engineered food shortages, pushing people into foraging from store to store for bread, chicken, beef, pasta, beans, paper goods, which have totally disappeared from stores for over 8 days with no restocking of any kind…

While trucks loaded with food line the highways but never seem to reach the stores.

Or, as in Holland and Grand Haven, Michigan, GOP controlled Meijers Stores now have no chicken through within walking distance of the largest Tyson poultry processing facility in the nation, working 3 shifts a day, producing food that simply disappears, but to where?

UK Daily Mail: Only US company that makes anti-malaria drug touted by Donald Trump as a possible coronavirus treatment DOUBLED the price as the disease was ravaging China (but insists it was just ‘coincidence’)

  • Chloroquine is being fast-tracked as a coronavirus treatment after studies including in France showed positive outcomes in patients
  • Only one US company, New Jersey’s Rising Pharmaceuticals, makes the drug
  • In January, as virus was crippling China, it almost doubled the price overnight
  • Firm insisted that the rise was ‘coincidental’ and it has since reversed it 
  • Coronavirus symptoms: what are they and should you see a doctor?

The only US company that manufactures a drug being fast-tracked as a potential treatment for coronavirus suddenly doubled the price earlier this year, data shows.

Rising Pharmaceuticals, in New Jersey, increased the price of anti-malarial drug chloroquine from around $3.87 per 250mg pill to $7.66, according to data seen by the Financial Times.

Meanwhile the price of a 500mg pill rose from around $10.05 to $19.88.

A Rising spokesman told the FT that the price rise was ‘coincidental’ and that it was reversed when the company realized it could prove useful in defeating coronavirus.

Sold under the brand name Plaquenil, the drug (pictured) is generally safe for malaria treatment, although side effects like permanent eye damage and even a rare few deaths have been reported. The first US clinical trial of hydroxychloroquine for coronavirus  began recruiting last week

President Donald Trump falsely claimed the anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine was FDA approved to treat coronavirus before being corrected by FDA Commissioner Stephen Hahn (left), who explained it will only be prescribed experimentally for ‘compassionate use’

The reversal had yet to show through in the FT’s data.

The World Health Organisation is currently conducting trials on cholorquine after small studies, including one in France, suggested in helped coronavirus patients and reduced the amount of time they were infectious for.

Donald Trump has announced that the US is fast-tracking the drug for approval as a coronavirus treatment, though FDA commissioner Stephen Hahn downplayed it – saying it is only being handed out in a small number of ‘compassionate use’ cases.

  1. I have no problem with people raising prices for limited availability items, but I get really pis-sed off when the shortage is caused by government mistakes and/or misconduct.

    The shut down of America may make sense to the ruling elites, but the elites, aka plantation rulers, tell no one truthfully what they are doing or why they are creating the problems, and the shut down certainly hurts the individuals and the small businesses far more than it hurts the crony capitalists. The people only learn the truth long after the event. Government has too much power and far too many secrets.
