Deceased Woman Receives Letter Claiming She’s COVID-19 Positive; Vitamin D3 Mixed With Hydroxychloroquine Shows Promise in Treating Coronavirus

By WKYC. A Shelby County man questions what is going on at the Shelby County Health Department.

His mother died six months ago, but the health department just sent her a letter saying she is COVID-19 positive.

Troy Whittington said he was surprised when he opened the letter this week from the Shelby County Health Department. He knew what was in that letter was false. . .

Whittington said a letter arrived from the Shelby County Health Department for his mother, Sandra Whittington. The letter says she has been diagnosed as COVID positive and needed to isolate.

That would be difficult, according to her obituary: the 66-year-old died February 16th. That was weeks before the first case of COVID-19 was detected in Shelby County. (Read more from “Deceased Woman Receives Letter Claiming She’s COVID-19 Positive” HERE)

Vitamin D3 Mixed With Hydroxychloroquine Shows Promise in Treating COVID-19: Study

By Washington Examiner. A new study finds that COVID-19 patients with acute respiratory infections may improve with a regimen of Vitamin D3, hydroxychloroquine, and azithromycin.

The study was published in the Journal of Steroid Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and employed a randomized controlled trial, considered the gold standard in medical research, on patients who had COVID-19-related pneumonia in a hospital in Spain. All patients were given hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin, and one group was given Vitamin D3 (calcifediol) while the other group was not. Hydroxychloroquine is an “ionophore” that can transport particular molecules across a cell membrane, while azithromycin is an antibiotic used to treat lung infections.

Of the 50 patients treated with Vitamin D3, only two were admitted to an intensive care unit. Of the 26 patients who did not receive Vitamin D3, 13 were admitted to the ICU, and two died. (Read more from “Vitamin D3 Mixed With Hydroxychloroquine Shows Promise in Treating COVID-19: Study” HERE)
