Feds Take Action To Block Hydroxychloroquine For COVID Patients; Here’s Why One Yale Professor Is Calling This An ‘Unconscionable Mistake’

(Liberty Bell) – One of the most heinous things our government is doing at the moment is attempting to limit the availability folks have of getting hydroxychloroquine, a potentially lifesaving treatment for the very serious and awful coronavirus that is rampaging across the globe.

Much of the hoopla surrounding the medication has nothing to do with its safety, but rather the fact that it, like the pandemic itself, has been politicized by the radical left as a weapon to be used against President Trump in the 2020 election.

Well, epidemiology professor Harvey Risch, from the Yale School of Public Health, has come out and asserted that hydroxychloroquine used in combination with zinc and antibiotics can be an effective treatment for folks suffering from COVID-19.

Via Just The News:

Risch draws a distinction between two stages of the illness, noting that while the treatment will likely work quickly during the first stage, it is not effective in helping people who have advanced to the more serious second stage.

“At the first stage, it is a flu-like illness. That illness will not kill you. If you are a high-risk patient and begin treatment immediately, you will almost certainly be done with it in a few days. When not treated, high-risk patients may progress. The virus then causes severe pneumonia and attacks many organs, including the heart. In this second stage, hydroxychloroquine is not effective,” he explains in a Washington Examiner opinion piece.

Risch says that people in the high-risk category should be provided treatment even before they receive the results of their coronavirus test.

“The second thing to know is that most low-risk patients survive without treatment. Low risk means you are under age 60 and have no chronic conditions such as diabetes, obesity, and hypertension, have no past treatment for cancer, are not immunocompromised, etc. High risk means you are over 60 or you have one or more of those chronic conditions. High-risk patients need immediate treatment when they first show symptoms,” he said.

“It is a serious and unconscionable mistake that the FDA has used inpatient data to block emergency use petitions for outpatient use. Further, already back in March, the FDA approved the emergency use of hydroxychloroquine for hospitalized patients, for whom it is demonstrably less effective than for outpatients,” he said. “If hydroxychloroquine satisfied the FDA criteria for emergency inpatient use in March, it should more than satisfy those criteria now for outpatient use, where the evidence is much stronger.”

One of the many truth bombs that Risch drops here is that if there were a medication that was widely held as acceptable as a treatment for coronavirus, then no one would be able to make a lot of money off of as a consequence, which he says might be one of the contributing factor in the opposition to the medication’s use.

“I can only speculate about the cause of the FDA’s recalcitrance. Hydroxychloroquine is an inexpensive, generic medication. Unlike certain profit-generating, patented medications, which have been promiscuously touted on the slimmest of evidence, hydroxychloroquine has no natural financial constituency. No one will get rich from it,” he said.

“Further, it seems quite possible that the FDA, a third of whose funding comes from drug companies, is under intense pressure from those companies to be extremely conservative in its handling of hydroxychloroquine. If hydroxychloroquine is used widely and comes to be recognized as highly effective, the markets for expensive and patented COVID-19 medications, including intravenous drugs that can only be used in the hospital, will shrink substantially,” Risch wrote.

This is absolutely outrageous, but likely the truth. When you stop and think about it, the motivations for most of what leftists want to do in this country is about gaining power and wealth for themselves at the expense of others. It’s just how they operate.

What’s sickening is that thousands of people are dying needlessly while radical Democrats decide to play politics with our lives. This is the most egregious act by a sitting government in this nation’s history. Hopefully, history will reflect that point and those involved in this fiasco will be properly shamed for their involvement.

  1. I was in Vietnam. We were given this to prevent malaria.
    I believe that we Veterans have an immunity to Covid due to all of the malaria pills we took over there.
    I belong to a group that has over 500 Vets. None of us have gotten Covid.
    So far!
    The dems are making a fortune off of this BS.

    Anybody notice that all of these signs, masks, meal delivery companies etc, etc were available as soon as we started the quarantines. Wow, what a strange coincidence.

  2. How difficult it is, to acknowledge reality once you’ve been woke by the kool aid and infected by T.D.S. (Trump Derangement Syndrome). To anyone with an independent mind, it is simple. You believe the front line M.D.s and countless people that have been successfully treated by prescribed regiments of Hydroxychloroquine, antibiotics and zinc over someone like Dr. Fauci with a major conflict of interest. Someone that we must remind ourselves no longer practices medicine. Rather just a politician with an insider trade secret. What I can’t figure out; is why this appointed official has not been fired already?

  3. Trump should fire the head of the FDA and Fauci who has a batting average of about 50 with his models and predictions

  4. Bottom line…
    Dr. Fauci has been FIGHTING and telling EVERYONE on ALL of the Fake Mainstream News Outlets that HCQ is ineffective and dangerous from the very beginning!
    I saw the the video of Robert Kennedy and Allen, whatever his last name is, who by the way defended Jeffery Epstein, and Mr. Kennedy said that Dr. Fauci would have a very large financial payout once the vaccine was approved.
    The reason being is bc his name is on the Patent!
    So there you have it!
    The far Left does NOT care about ALL OF THE LIVES THAT HAVE BEEN LOST!!!
    They only care about blaming EVERYTHING on President Trump, power and money.
    Enough said…
    If we want to remain the only Free County in the world, the only thing we can do is re-elect President Trump and go to the Polls!
    Unless compromised, please don’t mail it your vote!

  5. Years ago, either Play Boy or Penthouse had a series on Cancer, Yes I am a woman but bought either 2 or 3 issues on this subject. The things that were revealed in those articles were terrible. It all came down to the medical associations and doctors who were getting rich on treating cancer. It also gave examples of treatments that worked and how these doctors were treated. Many lost their licenses. It all came down to money, and how much was being made, after all everyone wants to live. I was a fairly good student and learned that our immune system is what heals us, so I never saw the logic in destroying good cells to kill the bad ones. The gist was that they were making so much money and they did not want their cash cow to be stopped.

    Fast forward to today, what I am seeing with the virus is the same thing. The FDA and drug companies are on course to make a lot of money. What was in the cancer articles was how the FDA had tricked this doctor to share so they could run trials. What they did was run them wrong and then file for a patent on his work.

    When I read that Fauci and 5 others will own 50% of the revenue from a vaccine, you see where I am going. Hold the people off so we can charge an outrageous price for a vaccine when we already have a cheap alternative.

    If that is true, no one working on the vaccine through the government should be able to own 50%. I don’t think that if your brains are what helped develop something should not be rewarded but to own 50% is outrageous. If this is true, then it should be stopped immediately. Also anyone who stands to profit should have to disclose. And if they are making that kind of profit, how much can we trust their advice.

    I realize that it is expensive to develop and new drug but there are some facts that many people forget. It is true that many company’s donate to the colleges who are part of their research. That is a sweet deal. They do not have the overhead of providing the labs, the upkeep, or the money paid to employees. They are using all these things provided by the taxpayers and then to add insult to injury, they charge the people who are paying for as much of the development and they are, the taxpayer, more here than they are selling it to foreign countries.

    Trump finally did something about us having to pay more than anyone else. Have to wonder how many of our trusted elected officials just happen to own stocks in the pharmaceutical companies.

    Then I saw on the internet, and segment between Robert Kennedy and I think Alan Dershowitz. Did you know that the pharmaceutical companies cannot be sued over any vaccine? How ‘s that? There are so many things that our permanent elected officials do that we are never told about.

  6. Big Pharma and the FDA having been indoctrinated and taken under the wing of the Left, for every life that’s been lost to COVID-19 where death could have been prevented by prompt treatment with HCQ, one life on the Left should be forfeit until such time as the ENTIRE Left GTFO the way and stops running interference for the President’s enemies or else dies off as a result of its own recalcitrance! Money and power aren’t everything, except for maybe those who don’t possess the knowledge to use them wisely.

  7. There needs to be a very large class action lawsuit against the FDA. Some doctors who are faithful to the oath they took have a lawsuit against the FDA. Where are the rest? Peoples health is between their doctor and them not the government. All the negative prior info on HCQ was found to be misinformation and improper use of the med. Wake up and talk to your doctors who should be supporting safe use of the med in the early stages of this virus so patients can survive , not die.

  8. When you say the feds are blocking, you’re talking about Trump and who he has control over aren’t you? He’s already out his people in.

    • Kim I think you have been asleep at the wheel. Trump has no control over this and if he did he surely wouldn’t be blocking it. Of course the radical left would be fighting it all the way. Try to keep up with the news. Stay away from CNN.

  9. By preventing your physician the right to prescribe hydroxychoroquine, zinc and antibiotics to treat COVID-19 and allowing he prescriptions to be filled he has placed a death sentence on you and your love ones.

    It is my understanding he is a family man and he and his wife have 4 children.

    As stated in the Bible “an eye for an eye and tooth for a tooth”!

    His decision is absolutely political. All you have to do is follow the money!

  10. My sister went to our local medexpress in February with an upper respiratory infection. Doctor prescribed hydroxychloriquine and azythramiacine(ZPak) which dried out fluid from lungs.
    Clinic stated hydroxy was a drug used for Malaria
