If, after trials (like they are doing for vaccines), it was shown to work, fine - but thatís not what is happening here.
Well normally I would say that he must be taking it on advice from his doctor. But knowing this is Trump it wouldn't surprise me if he just made the whole thing up.

This letter from his doctor is very carefully worded, and doesn’t actually state that Trump is taking the medicine.

And Trump said
Quote:
the White House physician "didn't recommend" the treatment but offered it to him
Remember, the Food and Drug Administration has cautioned against the use of hydroxychloroquine or chloroquine for COVID-19 treatment outside of hospitals or clinical trials due to the risk of heart rhythm problems - they said "Hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine have not been shown to be safe and effective for treating or preventing COVID-19,"

Youíre confusing "impersonation" with "copying behaviours"...

Re: Coronavirus

This proposal would be entertaining if it wasn’t so deadly.

The country with the second most deaths in the world proposing to not quarantine passengers from the deadliest county.

Itís helpful if you quote a post if directly referring to it, however you canít possibly mean my last post. Itís very much Friday afternoon on that one.

Your selective quoting at least let the author of the post know who you were directing your response at.

I am just glad my mum is safe. Her home stopped visitors the week before lockdown and their measures are so good they have not had a single case of COVID-19 at all. However my father in law's home has had a large number of cases and a number of patient deaths. It really is a scandal how bad some homes have gotten.

Can't really blame the care homes.
