Local Doctor Expresses Skepticism of Possible COVID-19 Drug

March 27th, 2020 by WCBC Radio

President Donald Trump declared at a press conference last week that chloroquine was a possible “game changer” for addressing the Coronavirus and that the FDA had approved it. Actual medical experts however have pushed back noting that clinical testing of chloroquine is barely underway and it is far too early to have its use promoted. Among those expressing some skepticism, local dermatologist Dr Seah McCagh during an interview on WCBC’s “Dave Norman Show”…

    But Trump is a ‘stable genius’ and knows MORE than doctors, Generals, scientists, etc. He says so himself. So there’s that.

    Trump is promoting “Depraved Mind Murder”-(where an individual under circumstances EVINCING a DEPRAVED indifference to human LIFE, recklessly engaged in conduct which created a grave risk of death to another person,and thereby caused the death of another person.)

    People pay attention. Chloroquine with a Z pk. has shown good results. We’re in the mitts of a deadly virus. WE don’t have time to do time trials on this drug. The worst that can happen is it wouldn’t work on subjects.
    Enough of putting our President down. Not the time for it…President Trump is doing everything along with his team to help fight this disease. Desperate times calls for desperate action.

      It’s ( midst ) Carolyn, but you are correct in content. Trump said : “possible game changer” Liberals heard : ” wonderful drug, perfect drug, I recommend this drug, in fact I insist on it and if you can’t find any, no problem, try some fish tank cleaner. Now if I’m infected with Covid 19, I will try Chloroquine or it’s synthetic counter part. Anyone else can feel free to put the “Lime in the Coconut”

          Mark, the people who ingested fish tank cleaner were most likely strung out on something, perhaps fish tank cleaner, who knows. I’m pretty sure Trump has little to do with this.

            > No, they were following what Trump said. Read some news before you comment- “The wife of the man who died in Arizona told NBC News that she and her husband ingested chloroquine after realizing that a product used to clean the couple’s fish tank by killing aquatic parasites contained the substance. “I saw it sitting on the back shelf and thought, ‘Hey, isn’t that the stuff they’re talking about on TV?’” she said.

            Their intent, she said was to protect themselves from the virus. “Trump kept saying it was basically pretty much a cure,” she explained. She and her husband drank the chemical on March 23, after pouring it into soda, and immediately starting experiencing dizziness and vomiting. He died, and she is in critical condition.

            > In Arizona, a man died after he and his wife took chloroquine phosphate, a chemical used in the cleaning of fish tanks that is also in hydroxychloroquine.

            “Trump kept saying it was basically pretty much a cure,” the man’s widow told NBC, advising: “Don’t take anything. Don’t believe anything. Don’t believe anything that the president says and his people … call your doctor.”

      “Chloroquine with a Z pk. has shown good results.” Actually, no it has not. It is not FDA approved for Covid-19 treatment. It was given to a group of 25 or so people in France with very mixed results. Also, the drug is for malaria, lupus, and arthritis. Folks with those ailments are finding difficulties getting the drug for its FDA intended use. David Dennison should not be shouting out the names of drugs. Let the medical professionals do that. There are many who unfortunately believe everything he says.

    I have an idea, let’s all start talking about things in the medical field, which I assume we have NO background in. If you don’t like the President great it’s America it’s you right, but he is the President live with it. Fighting and back biting will not solve anything. I’m praying daily to Jesus (the creator of the universe) for peace, guidance and an early end to this. He knows the outcome and what ever it is He will get us through it. Attacking each other will not help. “My pease I give to you” John 14:27 P.S. He said this knowing He was on the way to the cross.

      I agree with you Dave. So why does Trump continually use derogatory names towards members of the other party? He also calls members of his own party derogatory names like Mitt Romney and the late John McCain. He called the governor of Washington State a snake. He said he didn’t like the governor of Michigan. And first and foremost, why does he continually misrepresent, mislead, and outright lie about just about everything? And please don’t say something like “at least he’s not Obama or Hillary”.

    Jay I do believe you are mistaking comparing what out President does and what Jesus asks us to do. You know He is not a Rep. or a Dem. but LORD of all.
