Drug touted by Trump to treat COVID-19 linked to higher death risk - study

Recommended Posts

I see the BBC is getting in on the anti-Trump agenda too. The drug been around for 65 years, when Trump was 8 years old. The BBC need a piece of him too. The article is not worth reading due to its obvious political bias. I don't read or view anything from CNN and some others, so I now have to add BBC to the list.

 

BBC should focus on their own domestic Covid-19 disaster - currently the worst in the world.

Aunty Beeb has been shedding readers and viewers like autumn leaves for years for its biased coverage of current events.

 

Less than half of Britons (44%) now say they trust the BBC to tell the truth despite its public charter to remain politically neutral. This is a fall of seven percentage points since October.

 

And the rest of the UK mass media isn't exactly covering itself with glory, with increasing numbers of people turning to social media and alternative online news channels.

No zinc.

 

Here are new papers begging these studies to include zinc. Why was it not included? Zinc's ability to fight coronavirus has been know for more than a decade.

 

June 1 (release date) suggests current studies add zinc

But granted, it's complicated.  SARS-CoV-2 may be different in ways that are not yet understood.

Oh thanks.  I knew someone on here would find a way to show that Mr Trump is not wrong (again).  Just another misunderstanding eh

Fake News. Liberal Anti-Trump BS. This drug as been used for 50 years. How funny. You sheep will believe anything. 

Not for Covid. The jury is still out as to the drugs suitability for general use as protection against Covid infection. trump will have instant call out 24/7 for expert medical support, hardly surprising for him to claim he feels safe using the stuff.

one has to wonder what (financial) interests he (or his allies) has on that specific product as he vehemently keeps pushing it forward

Rudy also has two million invested in a manufacturer as well.

There's no need to stress out because nothing can be changed until the next election unless you're planning impeachment #2.

 

The Democrats need to get their own house in order and try to win. They are doing exceptionally poorly right now.

 

let's not stress out while mr. president tears up more treaties.

don't worry, the russians won't mind if we move nukular missiles to poland. should be no concern if our navy starts shooting down persian boats. not a chance that nato might get drawn into another war. unthinkable that one of our regime-change targets might strike back. america is far away surrounded by big oceans.  europe is a soft target.

i'm sure europe would just love another wave of immigration.

 

it's not the next six months that is most concerning.  it's the three months of lame-duck presidency where trump will need to cement his "legacy" that will be the most dangerous.

 

i gave the man-child the benefit of the doubt when i read that after his first nukular briefing, he asked "why do we have nukular bombs if we can't use them?"  i figured just anonymous sources trying to discredit him.  i figured he meant "why waste money on weapons we could never use?"  he's proven me wrong, with "torture works", and lung disinfectant.  he's dangerous.

I think the interest, if any, is really small. The original news on this has been debunked, https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/trump-profit-hydroxychloroquine/

Clarify if you mean a debunking on French connection or the Rudy statement?

How can you say it helps prevent infection?

learn how to read 

 

I said there have been reports 

 

my main point was about the misleading headline and content of the article - if you get it then that is your problem

exactly my point, how has that got anything to do with Trump

Still looking forward to those reports.

 

Trump touted it without any proof, ignoring medical advice.
