WV COVID czar remains skeptical of hydroxychloroquine

July 31st, 2020 by WCBC Radio

President Trump this week rekindled some COVID-19 debate when he once again touted hydroxychloroquine as an effective  treatment.  It was a major talking point of the president in the early days of the pandemic- but faded from the headlines after a series of top level medical institutions dismissed the drug as ineffective.  Not surprisingly the president’s doubling down and promotion of  the drug again has led to another national debate on the subject.  The question was raised during the most recent West Virginia briefing-  with COVID Czar Clay Marsh saying that most of the more credible studies have found little or no evidence that hydroxychloroquine helps treat or prevent  coronavirus infection …

    NO WAY! Hydroxychloroquine is the method used by the alien overlords to implant their DNA in our bodies. That way we are open to receiving the Liberal Democrat’s tracking chip.

      Trump says he took it for 14 days. I don’t believe him. Imagine that. With the efficacy of off label use lacking clinical evidence and the well documented harmful side effects I can’t see his doctor allowing him to take it. But then again, the Preacher/Doc who said that aliens can impregenate women said it works so that was good enough for David Dennison.

    There’s a good chance that Marsh would not share any opinion other than the one pushed by big pharma out of fear of being cancelled. Free speech is being silenced unless it’s the approved free speech.

    Good link with chart of a number of countries who have or have not used HCQ in early stage Covid.

    Negative studies on HCQ involve late stage use.

    Bottom line is if I’m dying, I deserve the right to take whatever the heck I/my family want me to take, in conjunction with my doctor.

    Everything else is noise-level stuff everyone can argue about. It’s my life…or yours.
