Malaria would be the first pandemic that this administration is even halfway prepared for.

May send it to Africa as a good faith gesture, since they actually have a malaria epidemic?

At the rate global warming is going, those mosquitoes will be increasing their range. So best be ready.

Not just that, subby - I'm sure that the donor who suggested Trump stock up on hydroxychloroquine is also quite happy, too.

A bunch of buts bought out the tonic water.  Well, there went my gin & tonic. Let me tell you, gin and Sprite is NOT a substitute in any way.

South Dakota has enough onhand for every confirmed case to have a nearly 2 year supply, and it came from the federal stockpile.  If we do some math, needing 14 days of treatment (and assuming no one gets killed by the drug before 14 days are up- unlikely, but this is for fun!), SD is stockpiling enough of the drug for 10% of their population to receive the dose as it has been administered in ICUs. Which means they expect far more than 100% of their population to eventually contract the virus, since less than 30% of cases require treatment and less than 10% become critical.  Just more wisdom from The Greatest Administration.

Meanwhile, in Mississippi, the government is stockpiling bleach.
