The mainstream media tripped all over itself to warn Americans about the danger of hydroxychloroquine after Donald Trump touted early studies that showed promise in treating coronavirus.
After months of successfully scaring Americans into believing that the drug was more harmful than helpful, a new study has conclusively vindicated Donald Trump and left the liberal media and Democrats in total humiliation.
Never has a medical treatment been so outrageously and dishonestly politicized. At the beginning of the coronavirus crisis, preliminary research showed that an anti-malaria drug that has been widely used for decades could be effective against the new virus sweeping the world.
Donald Trump held several press conferences speaking hopefully about the findings of several small surveys testing the drug on coronavirus patients in France. The mainstream media immediately began amplifying false reports that the drug was actually harmful and attacked Trump for dispensing “medical advice.”
The media attacks were so successful that the FDA actually yanked a previously issued emergency authorization of the drug in mid-June.
A comprehensive new study conducted by Henry Ford Health System and published in the peer-reviewed International Journal of Infectious Diseases on Thursday may have completely upended the narrative once again.
Just The News reported:
The study examined 2,541 patients who had been hospitalized in six hospitals between March 10 and May 2, 2020.
More than twenty-six percent (26.4%) of patients who did not receive hydroxychloroquine died.
But among those who received hydroxychloroquine, fewer than half that number — 13% — died.
More than 90% of the patients received hydroxychloroquine within 48 hours of admission to the hospital. Scientists say giving the drug early during illness may be a key to success.
“We’re glad to add to the scientific knowledge base on the role and how best to use therapies as we work around the world to provide insight,” said Henry Ford epidemiologist Dr. Samia Arshad. “Considered in the context of current studies on the use of hydroxychloroquine for COVID-19, our results suggest that the drug may have an important role to play in reducing COVID-19 mortality.”
To be clear: The mainstream media and Democrats lied about the safety and efficacy of a drug that has been used to treat a variety of illnesses successfully for decades simply because Trump cannot be allowed to be right about anything.
How many people have died because the liberal media and politicians wanted Trump’s coronavirus response to fail so they could take back the White House in November?
