Trump Is Still Practicing Bad Medicine

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

Reuters

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.

  1. Are you crazy? Too lazy to bother yourself with actually checking the facts? HCQ is NOT SAFE for use in treating COVID-19 patients, it may prove fatal to those patients, this has now been categorically proven.

    • Elvin, I do not believe that other countries have had success in using hydroxychloroquine, but that they are under reporting or not reporting deleterious health issues for patients who use it. Hydroxychloroquine causes serious heart-related adverse events and death in patients with COVID-19 when used alone or with the antibiotic azithromycin or any other drug that prolongs the QT interval (electrical) of the heart tissue. The heart issues are quite serious with ventricular tachycardia or ventricular fibrillation, both decreasing the load of oxygenated blood that is pumped from the heart to the aorta and from there to the rest of the body.Most importantly there have been deaths caused by the use of hyroxychloroquine which has not proven to alter or prevent COVID-19. In other words, giving this drug was also giving the patient at chance at having their heart become less efficient. While hydroxychloroquine seemed to cause less negative issues (deadly for someone with a G6PD deficiency, which millions of people all over the world have and do not know they have it, which destroys the red blood cells) than chloroquine, there was no reliable clinical evidence that to give these drugs was worth the risk to a patient.
