    Can those folks override state mandates and regulations though?

    There will always be people like that, and for the few people who refuse to get immunized, maybe they could be isolated in their own wing. They wouldn’t be able to participate in any activities, couldn’t use the cafeteria, couldn’t receive visitors, etc. If they leave the facility, force him to go into quarantine for two weeks before they will be let back in. We already do that with a ton of other people, right? It’s harsh, but if we had a measles outbreak and someone refused to get a measles vaccination and wanted to walk around with the general population in a day care center, that wouldn’t be acceptable either.

    Gotta love this

    Or for some, maybe not

    But finally a study that treated early instead of waiting for the patient to be on their death bed.

    "Our results do differ from some other studies," Zervos told a news conference. "What we think was important in ours ... is that patients were treated early. For hydroxychloroquine to have a benefit, it needs to begin before the patients begin to suffer some of the severe immune reactions that patients can have with Covid," he added.

    And why waiting until patients are severely ill (like the studies that came out of NY) to start, instead of trying to keep them from becoming severely ill in the first place, has never made sense to me. Ford - reputable hospital system and large scale. Hopefully, this proves to be the case and we will have the first prophylactic in the bag for this damn virus that can just go to hell.

    Hopefully. But if you read the entire article, you'll see it reported some possible design flaws with their study that could lead researchers to findings that aren't accurate.
