This is not a repeat of every three weeks since the asshole first mentioned it. The slobbering sycophants still won't care.

When do we stop wasting so much time and money on the random shiat that asshole spews out of his face sewer?

K3rberos: I was going to make a joke about a spike in diabetes as people start chugging sugar because it's proven just as effective as hydroxychloroquine and therefore must also cure COVID because President Dr Mengele said it works.  However, a spike in diabetes among Trump cultists would be like a spike in leprosy in a leper colony.

A spoon full of sugar also has more decency, intelligence and humanity than your average right winger.

This is a new low in medical journalism.

The article uses prevention and treatment interchangedly. I suppose everyone can get the gist, but it is such sloppy reporting. This is such an important thing to be screwing up so badly.

Reuters is not a medical journal.

I'm certainly not a sycophant. There are some valid reasons why hydroxychloroquine looked promising. For one, it kills COVID-19 in tests. It just didn't work as well in the real world.

Look at the first drug actually proven to reduce COVID-19 death rates:

Dexamethasone is a corticosteroid that prevents the release of substances in the body that cause inflammation.

Dexamethasone is a treatment for...lupus. Look it up.

-==-=-

Hydroxychloroquine is also a highly effective treatment for autoimmune disorders such as lupus and rheumatoid arthritis because of its anti-inflammatory effects.


Cool. Except that Covid attacks the blood cells. All the anti-inflammatories will do nothing to stop that.

Replace "cancer" with "Corona-virus" and it still works.
