I'm fully expecting a barrage of "fake news" proclamations from Trumptards pissed off that the drug trotted out by our dipshit in Chief is not helpful.

Well. two different studies, one in Brazil and one in France, have now both determined that Hydroxychloroquine is not only ineffective on Covid-19, but causes heart problems in those that take it.

The heart problems have long been noted by the FDA as something that must be continuously monitored in American patients being treated for Malaria.

Meanwhile in the US, there is ONE case of a
n MD who claims to have successfully treated a patient for Covid-19 with this drug. The problems with the doctor's claims are that he will not identify the patient, the patient was not tested for Covid-19, and the doctor, like the President, is also a shareholder in the only firm licensed to manufacture and distribute the drug in this Country.

Time for a barrage of denials and conspiracy theories, including a join "investigation" by Breitbart News and the Epoch Times, isn't it?

People need to wake up to this new "Pay it forward" business plan. There is no sacrifice on their part, they get you to pay full price for someone else. They lose no profit margin. What are they donating? Why not pay it forward with an establishment willing to donate their price point and partner with you. Partner with a business who is willing to discount the food going to the same hospital workers can increase your purchasing power and help even more!

Jeez what's worse the people hoping for an effective treatment or those hoping for no effective treatments and more deaths and continued longer shutdown.

Nevertheless, both "studies" were small in number, whereas, the doctors actually treating patients and no dog in the fight say:

An international poll of more than 6,000 doctors released Thursday found that the antimalarial drug hydroxychloroquine was the most highly rated treatment for the novel coronavirus.

The survey conducted by Sermo, a global health care polling company, of 6,227 physicians in 30 countries found that 37% of those treating COVID-19 patients rated hydroxychloroquine as the “most effective therapy” from a list of 15 options.

Of the physicians surveyed, 3,308 said they had either ordered a COVID-19 test or been involved in caring for a coronavirus patient, and 2,171 of those responded to the question asking which medications were most effective.

Don't worry this is not the first time or the last time CNN will subject to to one sided news stories:

A CNN report received widespread criticism after it repeated Chinese propaganda and cited a Chinese state media outlet as its source.

Elon Musk called out CNN for erroneously reporting that more than 1,000 ventilators sent by Tesla to California hospitals hadn’t been received while expressing his surprise that the news network “still exists.”
Musk responded by tweeting, “What I find most surprising is that CNN still exists.”
