It’s been one of the most hotly debated issues since the pandemic started: Does anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine work as an effective therapy to beat COVID-19?
The truthful answer is a resounding…maybe.
There are 6,000 doctors who have treated patients with the drug with varying degrees of success worldwide—and these doctors have tons of evidence to show detractors that it does in fact work.
However, the fact that, in multiple studies, the drug has shown to not have an effect on the coronavirus—and in fact, could have side effects that could lead to cardiac arrest—has given healthcare professionals reason for concern.
This is a weird dichotomy, especially seeing that the drug has been around for DECADES and used safely and effectively to stop people from getting malaria.
Nobody seemed to be worried about those people taking the drug…
But for some reason, when taking it NOW, there seems to be a problem with hearth rhythm? How does a medication evolve and start forming new and dangerous side effects on multiple people in a laboratory setting?
Why They Deny Its Efficacy
That’s a hard question to answer…
Which may be why the Frontline Doctors—a group of doctors who have been fighting COVID-19 since the beginning—decided it was time to speak up and let the world know how they’ve used hydroxychloroquine to help cure the virus.
Of course, of all the doctors that the Left decided to latch onto, it was Dr. Stella Imannuel— a Cameroonian immigrant whose religious beliefs have brought her medicine into question—who became the Left’s target.
Never mind the fact that MULTIPLE other doctors spoke about how they also used hydroxychloroquine to save lives.
When it comes to the Left, that information falls on deaf ears…
To them, it’s all a “Trump conspiracy.”
It would be interesting to see a world in which Trump DIDN’T suggest that the medication showed promise. Would the Left have ditched their bias and allow the drug to save lives?
What is known, however, is that the Left is continuing down the potentially life-threatening path, as proven by the Ohio Department of Health issuing a prohibition on the selling or dispensing of hydroxychloroquine to treat COVID-19.
This move comes RIGHT after the Frontline Doctors organization made the appeal to the world to consider using the drug.
The ODH sites the fact that FDA revoked the emergency use of the drug and the seemingly growing litany of side effects the drug is miraculously developing.
GOP Governor The ONLY Voice Of Reason In State Politics
However, the Governor of the state, GOP member Mike DeWine, stepped in to save the people of that state, stopping the prohibition against using the drug as a therapy for COVID-19.
He tweeted out, “I agree with the statement from Dr. Steven Hahn, Commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration, that the decision about prescribing hydroxychloroquine to treat COVID-19 should be between a doctor and a patient. The Board of Pharmacy and the State Medical Board of Ohio should revisit the issue, listen to the best medical science, and open the process up for comment and testimony from experts. Therefore, I am asking the @OhioRxBoard to halt their new rule prohibiting the selling or dispensing of hydroxychloroquine or chloroquine for the treatment or prevention of COVID-19.”

Good on you, Governor…
This isn’t the time to be closing the door on potential cures, especially when no other viable solutions have made themselves known.
Doctors all over the world have had success treating the disease with a cockatiel of hydroxychloroquine, zinc, and an antibiotic of some kind – generally a z-pack.
Why would an entire political base turn their back on a potential cure?
Your guess is as good as ours.
Probably because they can’t admit when they’re wrong – or more likely they can’t admit when a conservative (ESPECIALLY Donald Trump) is right…
It’s a shame people had to and will continue to die for their hubris.
