Software Giant Oracle helping US Government in Massive Chloroquine Study!

Asher Kelman

I have been telling my son, the Executive V.P., Head of Marketing Worldwide for months we need His help for a massive study of the supposed efficacy of Chloroquine and Hydroxychloroquine in the fight against COVID-19

Well, independently, Larry Ellison the company owner, has now agreed to help provide the White House with the drugs and their software platform it appears could manage it all!

Let me emphasize that thr potential value of chloroquine comes from very thin anecdotal data.

Yes, virus infection of cells and cell to cell spread can be halted but no large randomized study has proven the drugs actually cure the disease.

Unfortunately, although it's easy to demonstrate antiviral activity in tissue culture, we failed with influenza to achieve any useful data from the studies made to date.

So although I am enthusiastic about doing studies. The only solid approach so far is the handful of vaccines projects at various stages of progress.

This is not likely to vanish, even if one of the 87 candidate drugs studies are successful.

We need to make the drugs. England, India and China already controlled or banned exports of chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine!

But companies are setting up manufacture here in the USA.

My son updated me of the work of his company Oracle

They are helping get the drug and provided the logistics and platform in the massive data management task.

This makes a lot of sense. The best medical researchers and CDC design the protocols and then industry uses their competivevknow how to get this done efficiently.

I must say that the US Army Logistics groups could do this in the area of mechanical ventilator supply. There is no reason why it should take so long!
