Corona 19 ‘The World’s Largest Infectious Country’ In the United States, the malaria drug hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) is a daily outbreak of exhaustion. The drug has become an issue as the political intent of President Donald Trump to divert criticism from the right-wing media and public criticism that has engulfed social media rumors, unfounded papers that stole the names of famous universities.
President called FDA an “enemy”
President Trump reiterated his advocacy for HCQ on 19 March (local time), warning U.S. health officials to be careful about using the drug for corona19 treatment as an “enemy attack.” During a luncheon with the Republican Senators, President Trump said, “Ask the doctors who are friendly to this drug. There are many workers who cannot get to work without this medicine.” President Trump announced the day before that he was taking HCQ, and White House Chief of Staff Sean Conley confirmed this. “The president is very healthy, but the situation was confirmed by the White House, and after a lot of discussions, the president and I determined that (taking) was more of a potential benefit than a relative side effect,” Conley said.
After the Senate luncheon, Trump pressed reporters when asked, “Do you think it’s right for the president to recommend this medicine if he’s not a doctor?” “(The reporters) only look at the bad results, and they (the medical personnees) give people bad information.” The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has warned that the misuse of HCQ in Corona19 could have serious side effects. President Trump called it a “Trump enemy statement” and called health care professionals “very old and almost dying.”
Musk and Fox News, Trump
President Trump’s obsession with HCQ began in mid-March. The starting point was social media, which was amplified by Tesla CHIEF EXECUTIVE Elon Musk. On March 16, Musk posted on Twitter that malaria drugs were effective in Corona 19, linking gregory Rigano to Google writings. A few hours later, the right-wing media Fox News first mentioned HCQ. That evening, Rigano appeared on Fox News and claimed that “HCQ completely eliminates (corona19 virus). Rigano is a lawyer, not a doctor. He said he had been consulted by Stanford University, but Stanford University officially denied it. Posts such as The Rigano, linked by Musk, have disappeared from the Google document.
On March 17, Didier Laura wrote in the International Journal of Antibiotics that a French doctor “used HCQ and antibiotic azithromycin together, and corona 19 was therapeutic.” Anthony Pouch, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, told Fox News, “We must be cautious, (on the French side) thesis is not a coordinated study and should be approached scientifically.” The journal, which published the paper, also stated that “more review is needed.”
Nevertheless, the weak-based HCQ advocacy theory began to spread through President Trump and his political supporters. On March 19, President Trump first mentioned the drug, saying, “Chloroquine and HCQ are known as malaria drugs, but they also hear the terrible (corona) virus.” Two days later, President Trump posted a post on Twitter claiming that HCQ and Ajitromycin would be the “game changer” of Corona 19.
Larry Ellison, president of Oracle and one of the main supporters of the Trump camp this year, also stepped forward. On March 25, Ellison suggested that Oracle be a partner, saying to President Trump, “Create a government system to use chloroquine and HCQ for corona19 prescriptions.” Soon after, the New York Times reported that Mehmet Oz, a doctor and broadcaster known as “Dr. Oz,” had contact with President Trump’s aides.
The president agreed to take the drug
HCQ is widely used in malaria, but is widely sold under the trade name, such as placuenil, but is also prescribed as a treatment for autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis or lupus disease. It was fda approved by the FDA in 1955 and is prescribed five million cases per year in the United States. It’s a low-cost drug that costs about $25 a month in the U.S. and less than $5 in developing countries, and is also on the WHO’s list of essential medicines. However, it can also cause side effects such as nausea, vomiting, and eye diseases. The FDA did not approve the drug as corona19, but on April 7 it gave an emergency use approval (EUA) to test its therapeutic effects. Along with other drugs, including ajitromycin, several tests are being conducted on corona 19 infected people.
However, it is a separate matter for people who are not infected with Corona19 to take the drug. The decisive adviser to President Trump’s use of HCQ to “clinically” himself was known as the attending physician Conley. When President Trump asked Conley if he could take the drug, he said he was told, “Eat it if you want.” It is controversial that the doctor himself said that “the president is in good health” and that he was allowed to take unauthorized drugs as a “preventive measure” in Corona 19.
Conley, a surgeon, has a long medical career and is not an infectious disease expert. He left Philadelphia Medical School and completed an emergency medical program at Portsmouth Naval Medical Center in 2013. In 2014, he served as a NATO military surgeon in Afghanistan, where he was responsible for the treatment of trauma. During his service in Afghanistan, he was injured in an improvised explosive device (IED) attack, which is often used by militants, and he has been awarded a medal.
The president’s primary physician refers to the head of the White House Medical Team under the White House Office of Military Medical Responsibility, which is usually chosen by the president from among the surgeons. Since 2006, when George W. Bush was president, Navy General Ronnie Jackson has been the president’s physician, but in March 2018 he served as Secretary of Veterans Affairs. Jackson praised President Trump for “having great genes.” Conley was appointed as his successor, but Jackson is still known to have a discipline in the White House regarding President Trump’s health.
Brazil changed spectacularly due to HCQ
The HCQ controversy has not only sparked confusion in the U.S. corona 19 response, but it is also spreading to other countries. President Zaire Bousonaru, dubbed “Brazil’s Trump,”, like President Trump, blindly defended HCQ, and in Brazil, the health minister was twice ousted in a desperate bid. Bousonaru is putting pressure on health authorities and medical staff to increase HCQ prescriptions, according to local media.
India, the producer of generic drugs ( copy drugs), supports HCQ in the United States and Africa. However, criticism is also emerging in India. “Experts are concerned about sending drugs that have not been proven to be effective abroad,” the Economic Times reported. Swiss pharmaceutical company Novartis announced last month that it would donate 130 million hcq doses to Swiss authorities. However, on 23 March, the European Medicine Agency (EMA) warned that prescribing the drug to Corona19 “could have severe side effects”, and European countries do not recommend it.
