It may be difficult for non-physicians to appreciate the
magnitude of this world-shaking scientific omission—and
probable cover-up. It is the pharmaceutical equivalent of being
told for 40 years the world is flat—only to have it conclusively

the current pandemic SARS-CoV-2 virus—can be killed by
commonly used drugs—antibiotics, antimalarial, or antiparasitic
agents—profoundly changes the practice of medicine.
