  1. Are children carriers? Which means if myself and my wife had it and now we are clear, can we go visit our parents? Or we can’t bec children can carry it, and if they do, for how long??

  2. Dr. Roberts discussed Hydroxychloriquine in respect to it’s lack of effectiveness for people “crashing and burning”. however, those who are in that state, may already have irreversible damage to their lungs, which no one suggests Hydroxychloriquine reverses. If it is effective, it would be in halting the spread of the virus, giving the bodies immune system a chance to recover.

    Additionally, some of the Dr’s touting this treatment, do so in combination with azithromycin and zinc.

    And even though many of those patients who are not critical, will recover anyways, if the recovery rate is significantly higher for those who take this protocol, it is significant.

  3. Dr. Robert’s,

    As always thank you taking the time out of your busy schedule to address some of the fears, concern and hope of all those who look to you for guidance.

    I have a few questions for you if you would be so kind to answer.

    Why can’t we just quarantine the elderly and those with weakened and immunity and allow children and young adults out at their own risk? If everyone will eventually get it, and young adults and children are at low risk levels, then allow people to go out and get back to work. Maybe even allow kids to go back to school.

    Would you consider doing an interview with the doctor who recently had an interview with Rudy? He claims that all his patients have seen good results with the combination of drugs he prescribed. That is quite a claim.

    Please stay safe and be well.

  4. Taking Quercetin supplements along with Zinc may act similar to Hydroxychloroquine and Zinc as they are both zinc ionophores(allowing zinc to enter the cell). And quercetin is safe and natural as oppose to the side effects potentially of Hydroxychloroquine. This suggestion is only as a preventative measure, But obviously someone with serious symptoms must contact their doctor as Hydroxychloroquine, if effective, would be a more potent option.

  5. Sounds like he didn’t listen to what Dr. Zelenko said. Rich says so what, most people under 60 will get better anyways. Well, that’s Dr. Zelenko’s point. He only gives the meds to people over 60 unless they have severe underlying health issues. His OLD patients are recovering!

    So its easy to ignore an important point & then go make a video about how people would have gotten better anyhow.

    Point 2: His Dr friend “on the front lines” ie hospital says that once someone’s dying Hydroxy doesn’t help. Again, thats specifically Dr. Z’s point. His goal is to give it to patients before the illness reaches their lungs and his success rate is phenomenal.

  6. Dr. Roberts: I cannot thank you enough for these videos. Your explanations for the possible mechanism of chloroquine and zinc in cell interactions, and your frank assessment based on anecdotal information that chloroquine may not be as effective as the hypothesis may suggest is informative, sobering and extremely valuable. The frum community needs to understand that science is not conjecture, and that the complexities of biochemistry often lead to dead ends in the search for a cure or effective treatment. Your background and expertise are uniquely suited for explaining such complexities to laymen.
    With your extensive contacts in the medical and pharmaceutical communities, do you have any anecdotal information on the effectiveness of Remdesivir? As opposed to chloroquine, which is a one-off, off-label application for COVID-19, Remdesivir was developed specifically for fighting coronaviruses. Perhaps this could be the subject of a future video.

  7. Dr. Roberts,

    Thank you for sharing your knowledge and expertise!!! Always informative and helpful.

    I have a close relative who is 70yrs old, that was very ill with coronavirus, and was feeling markedly better after only the second dose of hydroxychloroquine/zithromycin. I know there can be significant risks with these drugs, but this seems to have saved her life.

    I understand there is more anecdotal evidence to support this. Perhaps the hospital staff are not reporting positive results with this because by the time the patient reaches the hospital they can often be beyond help.

    Would truly appreciate a response.



  8. Dr Roberts,
    Thank you for your effort and information. In your video you note most people won’t be affected (Ive seen similar videos from other doctors), however the numbers from NYS show a significant number of hospitalizations among younger people. Can you please clarify.


    Also what about using Hydroxchloroquine as a Prophylaxis in people who have a light case of the disease – so it shouldn’t get to the point of them being on a respirator?

  9. I am sorry to inform Jay wolf but there are many young people who are quite sick with the virus and there have been several deaths already from people that are much younger than 60. Only social distancing for all will do the trick. I work in a school where some of the Rebbes, who are quite young got sick possibly from being surrounded by so many young children.

  10. Who cares if it may not work? The fact of the matter is that this is a VERY safe drug, that has been around since 1959. It was given to every single soldier who went to fight in Vietnam, and it is has very minimal side effects ( even those are only for people who have been taking it for 2 years straight).
    So, if it seems to work and there is no downside, why not try it??? These Dr’s are way to rigid in regard to this. Come on, cant you think a little out of the box? It is common sense.
    1) It seem to work 2) it is very safe=3) give it a try
    Why the fierce resistance?

  11. Dr. Roberts – not sure if I make any sense. But was just wondering what would happen if they gave Estrogen pills to the men affected by the virus? Would that help them fight the virus (as they say the estrogen is what’s helping the women in this situation).
