Man dies after ingesting chloroquine phosphate, fish tank cleaner

An Arizona man has died and his wife is in critical condition after they ingested chloroquine phosphate as potential treatments for the COVID-19 infection. The couple experienced immediate distress after swallowing the drug, an additive used at aquariums to clean fish tanks. Chloroquine phosphate shares the same active ingredient as malaria drugs that President Trump touted against COVID-19.

Looks like natural selection is still at play after all this time. Do these people truly not understand that: 1) A cure is NOT preventative medicine, 2) There are more ingredients in fish tank cleaner than just chloroquine, and those are not gonna do things for your body like it will for that fish tank, and most importantly 3) you should not experiment with putting anything into your body if you don't have any idea about what the hell you're doing

I love how they're trying to blame Trump for people being idiots. "Trump told us to drink water and the bleach bottle said it had water in it!"

So, some dumbass self medicates. Darwin at work. And of course a good opportunity for the left wing press to tell their less than intelligent readers that it's Trump's fault that some people are stupid.

This isn't a Trump problem. This is a "I heard something that something does something when you something that I heard on something. Let's try it, it couldn't hurt" problem. This is why the ancient ones came up with the term "Don't believe everything you see on television."

It's irresponsible to make this one person's mistake to be about Trump. We can't blame him for everything.

Misleading headline and summary. The idiots drank fish tank cleaner, NOT the drug. Not only that, the media said chloroquine was a possible treatment right up until Trump started saying the same thing. The media hates us. As a side note, since when can I not say "hate" without waiting for a mod to review my comment. That's retarded.

Lmao someone ingested something because it had the name of a drug in part of its chemical name and this is Trump’s fault how? Idk looks to me like public education has failed yet again. People don’t even know basic chemistry. I mean would these people season their food with sodium hydroxide or what?

They probably listen to their commander and chief when he was on the podium and talked to really good news about this drug.And then according to their trustworthy Evidence They took matters into their own hands. He's won't be the only people that die from this. Remember when Trump was talking on the podium he's not just talking to a couple of people he's talking to millions of people. They will take him at his word and that is the problem with people today. We got a dummy as commander-in-chief and we got a lot of dummies that follow him. Again when she gets all better I'm sure she'll tell her story and we'll find out the truth.
