Yale Epidemiology Prof Says That Hydroxychloroquine Could Save 100K Lives But It’s Been Politicized

How many lives would have been saved if we had not put petty NeverTrump politics ahead of known medical science?

Yet again, Nancy Pelosi has tried to rename the WuFlu the ‘TrumpVirus’.

But Nancy herself was on board with innumerable Democrats — Elected and Media — who led a pressure campaign to demonized the drug whose first promising reports published in the Lanced were spoken of approvingly by our President?

Since she helped demonize a viable treatment for which Trump had already gone out of his way to acquire a stockpile of, shouldn’t one of these Democrats get the honor of having the Virus named after them? Unless they’re willing to hang that responsibility around Xi’s neck, where it belongs.

Dr. Harvey Risch, an epidemiology professor at Yale School of Public Health, said on Tuesday that he thinks hydroxychloroquine could save 75,000 to 100,000 lives if the drug is widely used to treat coronavirus.

“There are many doctors that I’ve gotten hostile remarks about saying that all the evidence is bad for it and, in fact, that is not true at all,” Risch told “Ingraham Angle,” adding that he believes the drug can be used as a “prophylactic” for front-line workers, as other countries like India have done.

Risch lamented that a “propaganda war” is being waged against the use of the drug for political purposes, not based on “medical facts.” —FoxNews

Here is Nancy denouncing Trump taking a stable medication whose use a Yale prof is now encouraging for use not only AFTER exposure to the virus, but as an effective preventative, as well.

President Donald Trump and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi have traded jabs over the past two days since Trump announced he is taking the drug hydroxychloroquine as a preventive against COVID-19, with Pelosi calling Trump “morbidly obese” and Trump countering that Pelosi has “mental problems.”

The whole thing started when Pelosi appeared Monday on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360,” saying, “I would rather he not be taking something that has not been approved by the scientists, especially in his age group and in his, shall we say, weight group — morbidly obese, they say. So, I think that it’s not a good idea.” —NewsMax

(For the record, his BMI is approx 30, which is a long way from ‘morbidly’ obese. Nadler, on the other hand…)

The other dopes she runs with were no better. But then, they never are.
