Special Report: Doctors embrace drug touted by Trump for COVID-19, without hard evidence it works

It has been through 3 different trials, it has worked well for over 98 percent of patients. 

 

The stupidity of not using it to treat patients that are at risk of going into severe respiratory problems is also clear. 

 

I know you want the panic to continue, but common sense will prevail.

Perhaps so for mild cases, but not clinically proven across all scenarios. Again why are denying the current status evidence from medical experts - seems daft to me.

 

Your highlighted comment is ridiculous - again exactly the same as trump's nonsensical attacks against those who disagree with him.

the overwhelming majority imo 99.9 % of health care providers treating covid 19 around the world are NOT doing it because trump touted it. trump just touted what the medical community was already doing.

 

is that concept too difficult for you?

I known you've claimed you're a qualified medical practitioner so interested to hear from you who is claiming 99.9% of doctors w/w are using Hydroxychloroquine for treatment of Covid-19. 

 

Dr Anthony Fauci, the country’s top infectious disease doctor, has repeatedly warned that there is no conclusive evidence to support using the drug. Asked whether it should be considered a treatment for Covid-19, he said on 24 March: “The answer is no.”

President Donald Trump and his administration kept up their out-sized promotion Monday of an anti-malaria drug not yet officially approved for fighting the new coronavirus, even though scientists say more testing is needed before it’s proven safe and effective against COVID-19.

#hint.  worldwide communicable disease pandemic threatening hundreds of millions that can result in significant morbidity and or death

 

#hint.  majority (or numerous) countries in the world have zero doctor prescription requirement.

 

hint#. you should write yourself a "living will" that specifies you refuse any of those non completed clinical trial drugs. that way when you intubated and paralyzed on a respirator you need not worry.

I’ll tell you what I’ll do, I’ll follow the advice of flesh and blood medical professionals who I consult with face to face, I’ll skip the advice of strangers on the internet and I’ll not be stockpiling prescription medicines, let alone doing so then posting photos of my ‘private pharmacy’ online.

 

I also took the precaution of confirming my and my family’s medical insurance covers testing for and treatment of this disease and then confirmed which of the private hospitals near me accept patients with this disease and too accept our insurance.

 

You might want to do likewise.
