Read, but haven't personally experienced it, that Winn Dixie is enforcing some social distancing guide-lines. Hope the rest of the chains are going to do the same. I so wish good health for you Kitty, for that man who may have the virus, for your friends and everyone else.
Has hydroxy chloraquine be shown to prevent the virus or just to mitigate the symptoms?

Is it thought to be a preventative as well as curative?

As far as I know, it has been used in conjunction with a Z-Pak or azithromycin.

If I were on hydroxy chloraquine I would want to know these things. And for the rest of us I'd like to know because if it is not a preventative and people are walking around thinking that they are safe because they are on it for the RA or whatever, and they are not, then they are risking other people's lives.
