    I don't recall asking if you cared...but the fact that you keep responding to my posts suggests that you do.

    I simply asked you to back up your claim. Instead, you throw a tantrum and make the thread about your feelings. So what do you do for an encore...pound the table...blame everyone else...compound the lie with more lies...what?

    It's not my approval you should worry about but rather your own credibility.

    That so-called hair up his ass came from strong anecdotal evidence that the drug is showing promising results in Europe and Asia. Or should we just ban it because Trump thinks it's worth looking into? Dr Fauci and Dr Birx think it's worth sinking time and resources into.

    There are two reason the Left is against this Drug:

    1. Trump mentioned it theirfore they must be against it. If Trump came out in favor of oxygen these people would refuse to breath.

    2. Democrats have nothing good to offer and they think this crisis will hurt Trump. They need this to last as long as possible and by all real accounts this drug is nothing but a good thing.
    Imagine if Trump has ignored the possibility that Covid 19 patients could benefit from the malaria drug and it was in the long run absolutely proven effective in the rest of the world. The libruls would then be slamming Trump for holding back on pushing it. TDS limits the intellectual capacity of the left.

    Indeed, and a very good summary of that evidence is

    Several in vitro studies report antiviral activity of chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine against SARS-CoV-2. In vivo data, although promising, is currently limited to one study with considerable limitations. On the basis of the weak evidence available to date, treatment guidelines have already incorporated the usage of chloroquine/hydroxychloroquine for certain patients with COVID-19.

    Further research should address the optimal dose and duration of treatment, and explore side effects and long-term outcomes.

    There is a higher risk of side effects in the presence of renal and liver impairment, and there have been isolated reports of COVID-19 disease-causing renal and hepatic injury.

    Over twenty in vivo clinical trials have already been registered to test the use of chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine for the treatment of COVID-19.

    Contraindications for the use of these drugs must be checked for each individual before treatment. Empirical evidence suggests that hydroxychloroquine has a better safety profile, and it might therefore be preferable to focus research efforts on this less toxic metabolite.

    Surprisingly enough

    Prescribing hydroxychloroquine or chloroquine without further proof of efficacy for treating COVID-19 or with the intent to stockpile the drug may create a shortage for patients with lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, or other ailments for which chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine are proven treatments. Reports of this conduct will be evaluated and may be further investigated for administrative action. Prescribing any kind of prescription must also be associated with medical
    documentation showing proof of the medical necessity and medical condition for which the patient is being treated. Again, these are drugs that have not been proven scientifically or medically to treat COVID-19.

    DOES NOT "ban" anything, it merely advises doctors that their conduct in prescribing medication what is needed for other uses and which has NO PROVEN effectiveness against COVID-19 will be investigated. If the conduct is found to be appropriate, then nothing further is going to happen to the doctors. If the conduct is found to be inappropriate, then the usual remedies available for doctors who act inappropriately will be available.

    PS - You can bet your bottom dollar that the insurance companies are informing the doctors that they WILL NOT cover claims against the doctors arising from deaths or injuries due to the doctors prescribing "medication that has not been approved for use with respect to the particular condition that the patient has been diagnosed as having and/or has not been approved for use as a preventative with respect to a particular condition that the patient has concerns that they might contract". THAT will be a much more effective "ban" than anything that any state government can do.
    You defend that.

    Unfortunately that is not a true statement.

    Before I could accept that as a true statement, I'd have to see some evidence - like, let's say, LINKS to those "three international tests".

    Indeed, and the "professional consequences" would be exactly the same as the "professional consequences" following an investigation and finding (after hearing) that the doctors and/or pharmacists had "acted unprofessionally".

    The two biggest identifiable factors in extending life span were [1] the introduction of clean water supplies and [2] the introduction of sanitary sewer supplies.

    Thank your plumber for you increased life expectancy, NOT your doctor or politician.
