“There has been anecdotal evidence that it is promising; that’s why we’re going ahead.”
The MSM will likely shove this news to the back page because God forbid they acknowledge they jumped the gun when it comes to anti-malarial medicine hydroxychloroquine. They did it last Friday!
Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said during his daily briefing that he wants President Donald Trump’s administration to increase the hydroxychloroquine because tests at New York hospitals show promise.

“A lot of people would say, follow the money. There’s got to be some sort of financial tie to someone, somewhere that has the president pushing this repeatedly,” Brzezinski said.
These people never fail to blow my mind. They have to purposely ignore and delete any information that detracts from their narrative.
Studies in France have shown that hydroxychloroquine has helped people with coronavirus.
Last Friday a poll found that doctors rate hydroxychloroquine as the most effective drug to treat the
