Gregory Rigano, an adviser to the Stanford University School of Medicine, claimed on Wednesday that a French researcher who is well respected in his field had tested a hopeful cure for coronavirus.
“Full peer-reviewed study has been released by Didier Raoult MD, PhD. After 6 days 100% of patients treated with HCQ + Azithromycin were virologically cured,” Rigano tweeted.

Rigano followed up with an appearance on Fox News Wednesday, where he said, “And I’m here to report that as of this morning, about 5:00 this morning, a well-controlled peer-reviewed study carried out by the most eminent infectious disease specialist in the world—Didier Raoult, MD, PhD—out of the south of France, in which he enrolled 40 patients, again, a well-controlled peer review study, that showed a 100 percent cure rate against coronavirus [emphasis added].”
“The study was released this morning on my Twitter account, @Riganoesq as well as our most recent website, @covidtrial.io” Rigano continued. “The study was recently accepted to the International Journal of Antimicrobial Agents by Elsevier.”
Rigano added: “In fact to be able to cure a virus was said to be mathematically impossible, and the first company that did it was a small biotech called Pharmacet that was acquired by Gilead Sciences in a cure for hepatitis C. What we’re here to announce is a second cure to a virus of all time.”
Another Promising Study in Australia
In addition to this promising news, The Daily Wire reported Monday that an Australian team had announced they believe to have found a cure for coronavirus.
“According to infectious disease experts at the University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia, they may have found a treatment that could possibly eliminate the coronavirus,” reported The Daily Wire. “University of Queensland Centre for Clinical Research director Professor David Paterson told news.com.au today they have seen two drugs used to treat other conditions wipe out the virus in test tubes,’ News.com.aureported Monday.”

“The two medications Paterson referred to are Chloroquine, an anti-malarial drug, and HIV-suppressing combination lopinavir/ritonavir,” the report continued. “Paterson told the outlet that it seemed reasonable to call the drugs ‘a treatment or a cure… It’s a potentially effective treatment. Patients would end up with no viable coronavirus in their system at all after the end of therapy.”
Obviously these reports are promising, given what the U.S. and the world are going through thanks to the global coronavirus pandemic. Stay tuned.
Hopefully this will signal a return to normality. https://t.co/L4ENpNX94f
