WH doctor: 'Potential benefit' of Trump taking hydroxychloroquine 'outweighed' risks

President Trump's physician on Monday confirmed that the president is now taking the anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine despite not having the coronavirus, saying he and Trump concluded "the potential benefit from treatment outweighed the relative risks."

In a 114-word letter released by the White House hours after Trump announced he was taking the medication, presidential physician Sean Conley wrote that he discussed the pros and cons of taking the drug with Trump after one of his personal valets tested positive for the coronavirus.

But the letter contained no specifics on when Trump started taking the drug or what his dosage is.


"In consultation with our inter-agency partners and subject matter experts around the country, I continue to monitor the myriad studies investigating potential COVID-19 therapies, and I anticipate employing the same shared medical decision making based on the evidence at hand in the future," Conley wrote.

Okay, I did some digging, and here is the link to the full .pdf version of the VA 'study' Outcomes of hydroxychloroquine usage in United States veterans hospitalized with Covid-19
https://www.medrxiv.org/content/10.1101/2020.04.16.20065920v1.full.pdf
The study is a retrospective, analysis of patients, medication, and outcomes, and as far as I knowwas not intended to be a study at the onset of treatment.
Please note, no zinc supplements were administered to the patients included in the study, with bad outcomes.
This was also apparently issued to them late in the progress of the disease, not early as has been indicated is most effective.

Why this gets so much press while the positive results are being scrubbed off of Youtube and bookface, well figure that out.

I responded to a FB friend with info about Hcq from W'pedia and mainstream news sources, and FB deleted it, possibly auto-deleted.

Figure it out?  That's easy enough.  HCQ is a generic drug, so there are no big profits to be made.  And because Trump has touted it, it must reflexively be opposed.

Follow the money, follow the political agenda.  Saving lives is but a secondary concern.

Saving lives comes in dead last (no pun intended).
Money, power, rape of the Constitution and the public coffers, "prestige", even if everyone else has to be forcibly shut up. It's the new Lysenkoism.

I Believe in the United States of America as a Government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign nation of many sovereign states; a perfect union, one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its Constitution, to obey its laws; to respect its flag; and to defend it against all enemies.
