Besides the fact that hydroxychloroquine has been proven ineffective on COVID and is actually harmful, what’s wrong with Trump promoting it?
“The key finding of this study is that neither single, nor combination therapy with either chloroquine or hydroxychloroquine appear to provide any patient benefit in large numbers of SARS-COV2 infected patients. Moreover, and worryingly, such therapy actually may be harmful as treatment was associated with cardiovascular problems relating to heart rhythm.”
—Dr. Stephen Griffin, School of Medicine, Univ. of Leeds, on the study just published in The Lancet.

You are the biggest ******* idiot on yahoo answers right now. I’ve read every Research paper regarding Covid and HCQ. It IS Effective in preventing REPLICATION of the virus. It DOES NOT ATTACK the Virus. SHUT OFF CNN!

The most worrying aspect is that the most vulnerable to Covid19 are the elderly who more often than not have some health conditions, making this drug particularly dangerous given the heart related side effects! And yet Trump continues push this either as a matter of trying to somehow prove he is right or through financial gain! Whether people are dying from its use is obviously of no consequence to him whatsoever!
The level of stupidity in this country where people take his word over the experts is so bad, it truly makes me wonder if some Americans need to be watered each day!

What does science say?
From the Virology Journal: "Chloroquine is a potent inhibitor of SARS coronavirus infection and spread" by Martin J Vincent et al (2005)
<We report, however, that chloroquine has strong antiviral effects on SARS-CoV infection of primate cells. These inhibitory effects are observed when the cells are treated with the drug either before or after exposure to the virus, suggesting both prophylactic and therapeutic advantage. In addition to the well-known functions of chloroquine such as elevations of endosomal pH, the drug appears to interfere with terminal glycosylation of the cellular receptor, angiotensin-converting enzyme 2. This may negatively influence the virus-receptor binding and abrogate the infection, with further ramifications by the elevation of vesicular pH, resulting in the inhibition of infection and spread of SARS CoV at clinically admissible concentrations.>
Note1: SARS-CoV is now sometimes referred to as SARS-CoV1 and the virus that causes COVID-19 is a variation on that known as SARS-CoV2.
Note2: The Virology Journal is the official publication of Dr Fauci's "National Institutes of Health"
So, Dr Fauci knew about chloroquine and its effect on COVID-19 type viruses back in 2005.
We have just heard that 40,000 healthcare workers in the UK will be receiving hydroxychloroquine: https://twitter.com/TruthHammer888/status/12635033...Source(s): https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC12328... https://onenewsnow.com/perspectives/bryan-fischer/... https://voat.co/v/GreatAwakening/3828072

Please! The MSM is just trying to keep up their narrative that Republicans/Conservatives are against science. Except, that science doesn't always agree on anything like they imply.

trump should keep his retarded mouth shut and let experts talk

Of course it is wrong to push an unproven Drug. It has been proven effective for malaria but not coronavirus yet. But you cannot tell a real Trump worshiper that. Look how calls to poison control centers shot up when he merely questioned using disinfectants inside the body. Already one person has died from taking it thanks to Trump. The dosage must be correct or you may die. THAT is what else is wrong. Even more people will guzzle aquarium cleaner and die.

WHY IS HE PROMOTING IT? To kill people? Or does he (or someone in his family) benefit financially from his promoting some 'snake oil'? By now EVERYONE should have figured out that Trump only cares about more money for himself. --- Or else how do you explain Trump University? It was nothing but a scam.

It is a proven drug. So assuming you are not allergic to it, it can be taken for the intended use. But the drug doesn't care. If it happens to cure something else that is fine.
