Survey about COVID-19 and Plaquenel

I’ve been contacted by a scientist at the University of Ferrara who is looking into whether Plaquenil, also known as Aralan, chloroquine or hydroxychlroquine, can help with COVID-19/coronovirus. Please re-post, write your own version or whatever, if you blog, to get as many people filling this is as we can!

Please take the survey here, even if you don’t take Plaquenil, and whether or not you’ve had the virus. I’m guessing that it might be worth taking the survey again if you haven’t had the virus and then do get it – but I’m not sure. Stefano, if you read this, please let me know and I’ll edit accordingly!

Here is what Stefano says:

Help the world to fight Coronavirus!
Do you use Plaquenil, Aralan or chloroquine?

A common drug, called Plaquenil, has been shown by scientists to block the coronavirus in test tubes.

Many people worldwide use this drug, or its generic Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ), to treat lupus erythematosus or rheumatoid arthritis.

Other people use a similar drug (Aralen), chloroquine, for malaria or Amebiasis.

I work at the University of Ferrara (Italy). Like many other nations in the world we are now hit hard by coronavirus. The hospitals are more and more stressed by the ever increasing number of patients. The pandemic is now expanding worldwide. Large scale studies for the efficacy of this drug against coronavirus are not yet available.

Even if you are not using any of these drugs, you can be part of the solution!
Simply answer 3 questions and help to stop this deadly disease called COVID-19!

Many thanks!

  1. Thanks a lot Pollyanna. If we collect enough data for a statistically sound result I will surely let you know. Best wishes, Stefano

  2. I got the same request. I checked out the university and his name personally to make sure it’s not a scam. I’m still skeptical because there is a lot of data already available. If real, it’s a worthwhile effort. Just be careful of anyone who asks for personal information.
