The coronavirus crisis continues unabated.  And while we are all transfixed with decisions being made at the highest levels of government, I am concerned about the citizens of Greenburgh, and giving them the most up-to-date information on this crisis. 


As your Supervisor, I was approached by concerned residents of our town—Jean-Marc Orlando of Edgemont, Dennis Goodhart of Ardsley, and Alexander Roberts of Tarrytown—asking if the town would  host a discussion on a promising treatment for COVID-19.   In the interest of bringing you the latest information on a subject of vital importance, I agreed. 

 

I, like you, are shocked at the numbers of dead and dying swamping our hospitals. The combination of Hydroxychloroquine, a FDA approved medicine for Malaria, azithromycin, a common antibiotic, and zinc sulfate, a common mineral found in  most vitamins,  has emerged as a  therapy that holds the promise of ending the siege of our hospitals.  The limited clinical studies, such as the latest posted by The New York Times yesterday (https://www.nytimes.com/2020/04/01/health/hydroxychloroquine-coronavirus-malaria.html?searchResultPosition=1), and the experience of an Orange County doctor and others throughout the world prescribing the treatment, make it crucial that the public is informed.

 

This teleconference included Dr. Vladimir Zelenko, who has treated more COVID-19 cases with Hydroxychloroquine than anyone in the nation.  In addition, three other experts—one each from Israel and France--has opened up my eyes to the potential benefit of making the therapy more quickly available;  this might take the pressure off of our hospitals and reduce the permanent lung damage caused by the virus, necessitating the use of ventilators.


We as a town do not make any judgments on medical treatments, which should be made between you and your doctor.  We don’t promote the use of any particular therapy;  however, I will support efforts by our citizens to educate the public about credible information that might end this terrible pandemic.


We recorded the discussion and present it here for educational purposes.
