How Slum in India Conquered COVID

On July 9 India’s largest, densest slum announced that they only had 1 new COVID case despite being a hotspot. Dharavi is no ordinary slum. It is one of the densest in the world, housing more than a million people. It provided some of the backgrounds for the Oscar-winning movie Slumdog Millionaire.

The Indian government feared the worst when an outbreak of COVID was reported. It could have been the biggest disaster zone in the world. But they used proactive measures to contain the virus. They credited several factors. Dharavi used widespread testing and contact tracing. And Indian doctors used hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) for prophylaxis (preventive) treatment.

Dharavi’s COVID-19 infection rate dropped drastically from April through June. In July, new infections were very low, almost reaching zero on July 9. Officials have credited this turnaround to a “combination of hydroxychloroquine, vitamin D, and zinc tablets along with homeopathic medicines.” (http://e.elijahlistmail.com/t/26720856/242573036/190381/260/) It is still difficult to get HCQ in the U.S.

It is important to strengthen your immune system with Zinc and Vitamin D along with Quercetin and Vitamin C.

Should you get the virus, ask your doctor about HCQ.
