  1. Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) is widely used in Africa as both a preventative and a treatment for malaria. If you show up at a clinic with a fever, the doctor, nurse or medic is likely to just give you HCQ and tell you get some rest. Besides, as an infections disease in Africa, Covid-19 has to get in line behind malaria, dengue fever, yellow fever, AIDS, Ebola, and whatever new horror crawls out of the jungle. Covid-19 is a minor concern and is likely to be lost in the host of other diseases floating around.

      Amen. Having worked in Central Africa on a two year contract when I was much younger, you are 100% right. (A disease common in Central Africa that didn’t make your list but just always really scared the pants off me is bilharzia.)

      North Americans and Europeans are such complete whining weenies about COVID especially given how relatively rare serious medical cases are in the general population.
