    Fauci: no evidence anti-malaria drug pushed by Trump works against virus

    Fauci: no evidence anti-malaria drug pushed by Trump works against virus | World news | The Guardian

    Trump urges Americans to try hydroxychloroquine

    Donald Trump’s top coronavirus adviser has warned again that there is no scientific evidence to support the use of an unproven anti-malaria drug the president has been pushing as a possible remedy for Covid-19.

    How science finally caught up with Trump's playbook – with millions of lives at stake

    In White House briefings on Saturday and Sunday, Trump urged Americans worried about the virus to try hydroxychloroquine, a drug used to treat malaria, arthritis and lupus that has not been extensively tested for other conditions.

    “Take it. What do you have to lose?” Trump said on Saturday, suggesting he might do so himself after asking “my doctors”.

    On Sunday, Trump said America doesn’t have time “to take a couple years” to test the efficacy of the drug in treating Covid-19.

    To try it without knowing whether it is effective seems like a pretty big gamble to take.

    You can't buy this stuff OTC so doctors are prescribing it. If Fauci doesn't like the idea then that's his opinion but other medical professionals seem to feel differently and it WAS used to cope with other coronaviruses.

    President Trump REALLY needs to leave medical advice to the doctors.

    Of course, that same statement could be used to support "No evidence exists to prove (Trump's wonder?) drug is ineffective".

    “In terms of science, I don’t think we can definitively say it works,” he told CBS’s Face the Nation.

    “The data are really just at best suggestive. There have been cases that show there may be an effect and there are others to show there’s no effect.”
    In other words, saying that I can't prove my assertion (e.g. that I was mowing my lawn 5 days ago) does not mean that my assertion has been disproven or lacks validity.
