Nancy Pelosi Says ‘Morbidly Obese’ Trump Shouldn’t Take Hydroxychloroquine for Coronavirus

Nancy Pelosi Says ‘Morbidly Obese’ Trump Shouldn’t Take Hydroxychloroquine for Coronavirus”

White House officials urged Americans to follow the recommendations of their doctors, while many doctors said taking the drug could carry significant risk. "I'm just very curious, myself".

"The doctors who prescribe this drug are well aware of who can and can't tolerate it", he said.

There have been some great studies about it in countries like Italy, France and Spain and doctors in the United States have been very positive about it, he claimed. Now there are about 1,500 signed up and only a handful of them came from Manitoba in the first week of registration, she said. The press secretary also backed up the memo by White House physician Dr. Sean Conley. "I've heard a lot of good stories". "And it's just a line of defence", he said, adding that the drug was cheap.

According to Trump, the study was "false". "It was given by obviously not friends of the administration and the study came out, the people were ready to die, everybody was old, had bad problems with hearts and diabetes and everything else you can imagine". "This is a medicine that experts say, at best, may not be effective in treating or preventing COVID-19, and at worst, causes serious heart problems in patients with certain conditions".

Mr. Trump's political rivals said they worry that people will get their hands on hydroxychloroquine without a proper consultation. So, immediately when it came out, they gave a lot of false information, Trump said.

Separately in an interview, Vice-President Mike Pence said he is not taking hydroxychloroquine.

"I can't say definitely if that's what cured me, but I can say definitively that I took it and I can say that I went through a period of time that I was sick".

US President Donald Trump has strong opinions on medical issues

"Most of the media have been focused on whether it works as a form of treatment for people who have COVID-19". The FDA has warned that outside of clinical trials, no one should be using hydroxychloroquine in an attempt to treat themselves. "So my physician has not recommended that, but I wouldn't hesitate to take the counsel of my doctor". Instead, he told reporters he was taking the drug as a "line of defense" after a pair of White House staffers contracted the virus.

Despite Donald Trump's boasts about using hydroxychloroquine, the overwhelming majority of doctors and scientists around the world would strongly advise against it - including me.

He cited a missive from a NY doctor mentioning the drug's benefits and that he had no symptoms, implying it was being taken for prevention. Listening to the president.

I view it as a badge of honour. It's not unlike the president.

(CNN)Joe Biden lambasted President Donald Trump on Tuesday for taking hydroxychloroquine, saying that doing so is "totally irresponsible".

Several studies are underway into the drug's effectiveness in treating coronavirus and whether it can also protect against the disease, but so far there is no clear evidence it is beneficial. Really, the Post notes in the video below, Trump frequently tells the same whopper over and over again.
