Trump announces that he has been taking hydroxychloroquine

President Trump announced on Monday that he was taking hydroxychloroquine for about a week and a half as preventatives against the coronavirus. He says he seems to be okay and that he has ’zero symptoms’ from the drug and the virus. He also mentioned that he would not profit from taking it, but he wanted the country to be aware that it is okay to take.

Studies have shown it to be 90% effective in combatting SARS-CoV-2. The FDA warned against using it *without consulting a doctor*. Love how misleading the media is being regarding a potentially lifesaving drug just to spite trump. They don’t care about you or your well being, just attacking orange man.

He just proved all the people calling HCQ dangerous are liars. Once again he's destroying their false narrative. One "county" alone in France is treating 41,000 people with the HCQ,ZPaq, Zinc combo. No related deaths. High 90's success rates.

So funny how the media hyperventilates about this stuff. Seems that the fact that the POTUS, and his medical experts, are breaking the media's narrative about the drug so now the world is going to end. But I wonder if Demented Joe, Nancy Pelosi, Crustie the Old Commie, etc are taking it. I would not be surprised.

I heard marijuana is effective against the virus. Good thing my lungs are already fully saturated.

Let me get this right but they want to say there are risks in taking this medication to help fight COVID19 due to its side effects correct? Why aren’t they telling us not to take any of the meds pushed by BIG PHARM that have a whole list of effects that sound worse than the problems they’re supposed to help on all these commercials that play out on every single commercial break there is on TV & radio...

To the joker saying it's 90% effective here from a real article posted April 18 There is not enough medical data at this time to prove that hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine work for COVID-19 — while some small studies suggest the medications may be helpful, other studies saw no benefit.

If He's Been Taking Hydroxycloroquine, His Heart Already Stopped Functioning Properly, I Predict He May Die Soon!

The problem is those who are most affected by COVID-19, tend to have more prior health issues, resulting in that Hydroxychloroquine tends to have higher than normal RARE side effects. This drug is taken weeks before going to a Malaria area, and for about a month AFTER leaving that area. So if you stay in that location for 6 months, you are taking this drug regularly.

Has anyone else noticed any time trump says “So many people have called me and...” you can replace it with “So maybe Hannity called me and...” and no matter what he follows it with it works.

Most studies and especially the bigger ones see no benefit or even a strong negative effect due to all the side effect. In the bigger studies with better methodology the death risk increased significantly for anybody taking this drug compared to those not taking it. It is absolutely irresponsible to keep promoting this drug. There were interesting small studies without enough numbers or a control group that suggested a minor effect, we looked into it with bigger studies that included control groups and it proved detrimental to ones health. Out of all the more promising medications that are currently under investigation, hidroxychlorquinin is one of the worst and it looks like most countries are stopping their efforts investigating this drug and instead focus on actually promising drugs (like remdesivir). I don’t know if Trump really takes it or not and either way I don’t know if it is stupidity or malice when he promotes it. It was promising a huge effect in cell cultures in labs, it was promising minor effects in first very small studies with bad methodology, it is proving ineffective and dangerous in the bigger and better studies. This is how science works. I would have loved to see it help as any help is appreciated and we are kinda desperate but it didn’t go that way.

Somebody needs to tell him hydroxychloroquine is not cereal. I think he is just confused, someone help him to the Cheerios.

Who cares? I guess I'd rather him live than Pence become Presidebt, but this isn't an option for most of us, nor should it be until it's tested for this use and resources are sufficient to supply that use.

I like Trump in general, but I love a painful irony. I'm not sure what I would do when he dies of COVID despite taking his self proclaimed wonder drug. The stuff appears to be mildly beneficial at best. I have yet to see a study that proves efficacy, if you have a link please share.
