Noted Yale epidemiologist, Dr. Harvey Risch, has accused White House Chinese virus task force member Dr. Anthony Fauci of perpetrating a “misinformation campaign” in opposition to the drug hydroxychloroquine (HCQ). Dr Risch claims the medicine has shown consistently encouraging results in treating COVID-19 when it is used properly (in proper dosage, in league with your doctor, etc).
Hydroxychloroquine has been at the heart of a drawn-out political debate since March, when President Trump cited the drug as a promising possible treatment for what was then the new and widely misunderstood COVID-19 virus. HCQ has a long history of use by doctors to treat malaria along with other syndromes such as arthritis and lupus.
The World Health Organization, which has spread the lies of the communist Chinese party about COVID-19, lists it as an essential medicine. About 5 million Americans currently have prescriptions for using it.
Since Trump touted the drug in March, media outlets and medical officials/elites have engaged in and disinformation campaign for several months. Many of them aggressively promoted various medical trials that have determined the drug has no effect in fighting COVID-19; many commentators have additionally insisted, in spite of the drug’s decades-long safe track record, that it’s too dangerous for use to cure this disease.
“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 said, adding that he thinks the drug can be used as a “prophylactic” for front-line workers, as other countries like India have done.
Risch said he believes that a “propaganda war” is being waged against the use of the drug for political purposes, not based on “medical facts.”
Fauci has been one of the many critics of the drug and consequently has appeared on liberal new outlets. Many, are skeptical as the censorship has tightened.
