Democrats keep telling Trump he should listen to the medical experts.
They critically need to follow their own advice or people could die.
Andrew Cuomo tied doctors’ hands with an awful restriction to attack Trump.
The Democrats attack on hydroxychloroquine is the most enraging piece of anti-Trump delusion that they have engaged in yet.
Most of their attacks of previous years have been aimed at Trump, with this they could be harming the American people.
Doctors aren’t just using the drug because Trump promoted it.
Several European nations are treating coronavirus patients with it far more than the United States.
They’re using it because it’s the most promising treatment available at the moment.
There haven’t been the rigorous large scale studies on how effective the drug is at treating the Chinese coronavirus, however it isn’t just a random drug that Trump suggested for no reason.
The two small scale studies that were done on the drug suggest that it’s effective at decreasing the symptoms of coronavirus in subjects with mild symptoms. There were limitations to the studies but the results were still very promising.
Hydroxychloroquine is a safe drug that has been on the market for years and as long as a doctor is controlling the dosage it is unlikely to cause harm.
Yet because Donald Trump said that it could be useful the Democrats are dead set against it.
Doctors should be able to use it as they see fit since it is the only treatment that can be given short of being admitted hospital.
But Andrew Cuomo has ordered that pharmacies can’t distribute it to coronavirus patients with a doctor’s prescription.
The Order Stated:
No pharmacist shall dispense hydroxychloroquine or chloroquine except when written as prescribed for an FDA-approved indication; or as part of a state approved clinical trial related to COVID-19 for a patient who has tested positive for COVID-19, with such test result documented as part of the prescription. No other experimental or prophylactic use shall be permitted, and any permitted prescription is limited to one fourteen day prescription with no refills.
Fox News host Sean Hannity wrote an op-ed against the insane ban “Enough is enough. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo needs to IMMEDIATELY lift his pharmacy ban that is forcing New Yorkers stricken by the coronavirus into an already overburdened hospital system to get the potentially life-saving drug hydroxychloroquine. Because of an executive order issued by the Democratic governor, any new prescriptions for hydroxychloroquine must go through the already overrun hospital system. This makes no sense … The governor is creating a much bigger crisis in his state’s hospital system by denying New Yorkers THE CHOICE (in consultation with their doctors) to take this potentially life-saving medication.”
The doctors are the experts not Andrew Cuomo, and his restrictions are making their job even harder.
The people of New York are suffering because the Democrats decided to make a medical issue into a political issue.
Andrew Cuomo needs to lift his ban right now so doctors have access to the only drug that’s been shown to work against coronavirus.
