Seriously, what is the deal with Donald Trump and hydroxychloroquine?

Why is he still pushing it as a miracle cure when it has been conclusively proven NOT to be effective?

Update:

Can anyone provide any evidence that it works?

    The drug works. Mostly if it's administered at the beginning of the virus. Under a doctor's care.

     People who take it without any guidance are the ones who are dying using it.

     The reason it's being put down is because the drug has been around for several decades.

     No big pharmaceuticals can make any money off it because no one has an exclusive patent on it anymore.  ANY drug company can make it.

     Any new drug will have a patent owned by the producing company and they can charge anything they want for it.

    If hydroxychloroquine use is an accepted drug to fight the virus then the new drug will have to be sold at a price to compete with hydroxychloroquine.

     IT'S All ABOUT THE MONEY...Honey.

    ‌‌‌‌‌‌‌‌‌‌‌‌‌‌‌‌‌Why do you think it has been shown to be ineffective?

    Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) is used to transport zinc into the cells where the zinc slows down the virus. It needs to be in place before the virus has created massive damage because it is a prevention more than a cure.

    The tests that show HCQ in a bad light usually rely on one of three things:

    1) They "forget" the zinc part. So it is like sending a personnel carrier without the troops and then claiming that personnel carriers are no use.

    2) They administer HCQ too late. So you wait for the looting, burning and violence to take place then you send in the police and say, look, the police did not prevent the violence.

    3) They administer an overdose so the patient dies.

    One famous survey was retracted from The Lancet because they used devious statistics to make their case. CNN probably only mentioned that at the bottom of page nine in small print, though.

    Even without any evidence we know that HCQ is not particularly dangerous because we have about six decades of experience with the drug. So if it might be good then why not use it? The other way and people die unnecessarily.

    Trump very much wants a simple solution to the complex problem of COVID. Early on, hydroxychloroquine was touted as such a solution, but further testing revealed that it was not very effective for the general population and it significantly increased the risk of heart arrhythmia in older patients and those with previous respiratory problems.

     

    Trump isn't really concerned about these side effects so long as the public perception of the drug is positive. His continued support was meant to shape public opinion, but ultimately he lost control of that narrative.

    He's never called it "a miracle cure", the leftist media made that up. Doctors in the field have proved it effective. So, now my question for you. Why are you sostupid as to blindly follow every lie your media tells you?

  • Dr. Bonespurs must be conferring with Rick B. (who is YA's own PHD, CRNP, PA, MD, or CNA--your choice)!

    Why are you opposed to it when it has been proven to be effective in the treatment of Covid infected patients?

    I think he invested in it.  Now he is going to have to declare another bankruptcy because of the money he borrowed to do it.
