Recently, Donald Trump has become more active in the raging pandemic and tried to convince the citizens of America to treat Hydroxychloroquine as a possible treatment in case of an emergency. Moreover, after the tour of North Carolina, where the President went to ensure the development of the potential vaccine. Donald Trump has again started to push the usage of Hydroxychloroquine as a potential proven drug to treat Coronavirus patients. Furthermore, these unprecedented claims by the President have challenged the nation’s leading infectious disease expert.
After the return from North Carolina, Trump tweeted that HCQ can be a possible treatment for the infection. With the tweet, the President also attached a podcast hosted by a former top White House official advisor to Trump that said Fauci is misleading the American citizens on the usage of HCQ.
However, Dr. Anthony Fauci has already shown numerous studies that prove the usage of Hydroxychloroquine is not an appropriate treatment for Covid19 patients. Moreover, the order passed in April to use HCQ drugs in an emergency case has been withdrawn by the authorities of the US Food and Drug Administration.
Dr. Anthony Fauci is a leading member of the Coronavirus task force and previously worked as the director of the National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases. He claims the capability of the anti-malarial drug is not appropriate to treat coronavirus patients. Fauci also described that it is not the first time Trump has questioned his knowledge. Moreover, the top advisor of Donald Trump has also asked my abilities over drug prescription, which has published in USA Today.
Fauci mentioned that no matter what, I will not allow the usage of such a drug that proves no effectiveness over coronavirus patients. Nor am I distracted by the tweets as I don’t read them. Moreover, this is what I have trained for my entire life, and lives are stakes, and I’ll continue to do it. Fauci also mentioned the misleading of American people is nothing but a distraction of Donald Trump over his failure to contain the infection.
