France, Italy and Belgium Ban Trump-Kushner COVID Drug as Unsafe

Trump’s one hour press conference, filled with lies, made when only 2000 Americans were dead, shows how he centered all US efforts on an unknown drug with very high toxicity rates, a drug controlled by his political masters, and pushed it on the US killing thousands. 

France on Wednesday cancelled a decree allowing hospital doctors to dispense the medicine, while the Italian Medicine Agency (AIFA) suspended authorization to use hydroxychloroquine for COVID-19 outside clinical trials.

Belgium’s medicine agency warned against using the drug to treat the virus any more except within ongoing clinical registered trials. It said trials aiming to evaluate the drug should also take potential risks into consideration.

The sudden changes highlight the challenge for governments as they scramble to find ways to treat patients and control a virus that has spread rapidly around the world over the past three months, killing more than 350,000 and infecting millions.

It also illustrates at least a temporary about-face for regulators on a drug that at the outset of the pandemic had been seen as a promising treatment option.

The moves by three of the countries hardest hit by coronavirus infections and deaths follow a World Health Organization decision on Monday to pause a large trial of hydroxychloroquine due to safety concerns.

France’s cancellation, which effectively bans the drug for COVID-19, was confirmed by the health ministry. It did not refer to the WHO suspension.  Read more…

  1. In fact, France has not banned HCQ. By decree dated May 11, 2020, it had severely limited its prescription to hospitals only for patients in the critical stage of the disease, prohibiting city doctors from prescribing it to patients who presented the very first symptoms. By decree dated 27 May 2020, the government abolished the previous decree, which resembles a ban, except that HCQ prescriptions are once again subject to the ordinary prescription system, which leaves city doctors alone to judge what they should or should not prescribe. However, a decree of the same day requires pharmacists to ensure that HCQ is not prescribed to treat covid-19, except that doctors never specify in their prescriptions why they have decided to prescribe this or that drug, and this is a matter of medical secrecy: only the patient and his or her doctor have the right to know. Also, the pharmacist can only suspect that it could be to treat the coronavirus, and if he decides not to give the drug, he will have to refer the matter to the doctor who will or will not maintain his prescription. On the face of it, in the end, France has banned HCQ. In practice, doctors are once again free to prescribe it to patients who request or accept HCQ treatment. “Mission accomplished!” the government, the media, and pressure groups have (apparently) driven HCQ out, and that’s all that matters (appearance).
