    Why are you blaming Trump? He has nothing to do with what I said.


    Oh...wait. That's right. EVERYTHING is Trump's fault...even when it's not.

    Have a test were 1000 people get pills, neither they or the doctors know which pills are placebos.


    80 test subjects is too low and the study is not double blind so it's probably biased.

    Actually, this does appear to be promising.

    I would still have concerns about possible side-effects or damage from using this combination prophylacticly, or in those that are only mildly sick. But if you're in deep **** and it's only getting deeper, then I suppose why not try it?

    Some of these early non-controlled studies do look promising and more study should follow. I would be ecstatic if this worked but these types of announcements just promote a rush to rapidly deplete the supply of these drugs harming patients who need them today to treat illnesses that they have been shown to help.

    It might work. Effective drugs are first tested before some consistent results can lead to hopes the drug will be effective. Let's give researchers a shot at finding out whether this drug will be good or not.

    He didn't tell people to use it - he said that researchers were looking into it and it shows promise.

    If I were in dire straits I would have no problem trying this course at all... In fact, I spoke with my spouse about this last week as we have access to both of these drugs. That said, rushing out and starting to take these drugs, which can have very severe side effects does nobody any good.

    As the researcher said, the reason for no control group is the saving of lives. We'll know more soon.

    I believe these substances are abundant and cheap. I could very well be wrong, but that's my take.
