- World News 2020- Pt.1
So many things are going on right now in the News starting this year of 2020, that it’s becoming difficult to keep up with all of them. Because of the prophetic implications of the times we are living in we are making this post. We’ll be renewing daily this post with the latest news on top for easier viewing.
We started the year 2020 with ‘shaking’ not only with earthquakes or physical shaking but also politically, socially, in the sports & entertainment industry, & now health. I wonder if next we will also see an economic & a religious shaking? -Now more than ever we need to get our houses in order & get closer to the Lord as much as we can, He is our only hope in difficult times. And don’t forget He is coming soon for His Church! Are we ready?

Mar.19– A recent controlled clinical study for Chloroquine, conducted in France (20 hydroxychloroquine-treated patients and 16 control patients), the main problem is the paper was submitted on March 16, accepted on March 17 (Peer review <1 day). Chloroquine & Hidroxychloroquine are said to give “good inhibitory effects” for Covid-19 in China & S. Korea, but why is not giving results in Spain & Italy? Also Chloroquine should not be used with Lopinavir/Retonavir because causes arrhythmias & drug interactions, see here. But it seems Italy is using that combination. Also Chloroquine can be lethal for children. (1), (2). There is not enough evidence to determine whether chloroquine is safe to be given to people aged 65 and older. Since it is cleared by the kidneys, toxicity should be monitored carefully in people with poor kidney functions (3). Also there are contraindications for people with heart disease & diabetes (4).
