Health Editor’s Note: The FDA revoked the emergency use of hydroxychloroquine because it was not the panacea cure or prevention of coronavirus and quite frankly could do more harm, by altering the electrical firings of the heart, to many who received it. This is truly a lesson in who Trump is….He cannot admit he was caught up in a half-baked scheme to find that COVID-19 cure/prevention and become the super hero of the hour, or quite simply is too stupid to see he was wrong and to quietly admit it. Not a helpful trait in someone who is supposed to be “leading” Americans through this pandemic….Carol
REFILE-Trump touts hydroxychloroquine even as U.S. revokes emergency use status
WASHINGTON, June 15 (Reuters) – President Donald Trump said on Monday other countries had provided great reports on the effectiveness of malaria drug hydroxychloroquine for treatment of the deadly coronavirus, complaining that only U.S. agencies have failed to grasp its benefit.
His remarks, delivered to reporters at the White House, came hours after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration revoked its emergency use authorization for hydroxychloroquine to treat COVID-19, despite Trump’s frequent praise of the drug’s usefulness for staving off the disease.
