    D.Trump advices corona patients to take unproven drug

    Trump Urges Coronavirus Patients to Take Unproven Drug

    Curious what others think about this.
    Should Government (Trump) tell this to the public
    Would you take unproven drug, when having Corona Virus

    Personally, I do think they should provide it for free; as you offer to be their "guinea pig"

    I'm pretty certain it isn't Trump himself. I think it's doctors who recommended that and Trump just relayed the information to John Q Public.

    But if you want to think Trump 'prescribed' this, knock yourself out.

    Though advisers, including Dr. Anthony Fauci, have cautioned many times that more data is needed on the drug, hydroxychloroquine, Trump, in a White House briefing, went so far as to urge patients to take it.

    It's not me, having a problem prescribing "unproven drugs"
    Usually it's plenty of other RF'ers making such a fuzz about it

    I have totally no problem with it, that Trump says this

    You believe what CDC which is governed by Trump is putting out. Not me. I believe the CDC a bit more than I believe China but Trump fires anyone who won't toe his line.

    Seems like there is some evidence it could be effective, enough to warrant it being used to treat people.

    Not sure of telling people to take it is the right thing though if it leads to supply issue, hoarding, etc. Would guess you want to stockpile enough for those in need first, before creating a run on it.

    IMO, the current crisis, within the U.S., confirms that the Federal Government's Executive Branch is being managed at the topmost level, by an Idiot and by bungling fools.

    He needs to be arrested for this. Anyone else does it amd its potentially a very serious problem.

    In general it is very dangerous to tell people to just start taking meds, especially for unproven off-label uses. I'd be barred from licensure, fined, and possibly jailed if I did that.

    It suffices pretty well, thank you very much.

    There might be one good thing here:
    Maybe others see it like you do, and next time the majority of Americans won't vote for Trump

    Personally, I can't believe USA is controlled by Trump...there must be some "smart" guys at the top...using Trump for their personal agenda
    But who is the greatest fool: Trump or the ones voting for Trump to become president?
    1 fool would be no problem for the USA
