I don't believe that any of the flavors of quinine confer immunity from COVID, in fact I have read of current Lupus victims testing positive while taking what you say confers immunity.

It doesn't have to be 100% effective to be useful. If it reduced hospitalizations by, say, 80% or even 50% that would be good news. As for lupus, there was this news out of Italy last month:

Coronavirus, svelato come agisce: ecco perché l'idrossiclorochina potrebbe funzionare
Finally, further confirmation of this hypothesis are the data collected in the register of the SIR (Italian Rheumatology Society). In order to evaluate the possible correlations between chronic patients and Covid-19, SIR interviewed 1,200 rheumatologists throughout Italy to collect statistics on contagions. Out of an audience of 65,000 chronic patients (lupus and rheumatoid arthritis) who systematically take Plaquenil/hydroxychloroquine, only 20 patients tested positive for the virus. Nobody died, nobody is in intensive care, according to the data collected so far.
