Social media has been buzzing about US President Donald Trump’s claim that the US FDA just approved chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine to treat COVID-19!
But most people did not realise that he was almost immediately contradicted and corrected by Dr. Anthony Fauci, from the White House Coronavirus Task Force!
Here are the facts, and yet another reason why you should NEVER believe anything Donald Trump tells you!
Donald Trump : Chloroquine Approved By FDA To Treat COVID-19!
US President Donald Trump is a self-proclaimed expert on practically all subjects, including COVID-19.
Recently, he stunned doctors, scientists and even the US FDA, when he claimed on a televised press conference that the US FDA approved chloroquine or hydroxychloroquine for COVID-19.
Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, and the part of the White House Coronavirus Task Force almost immediately stepped up to correct him.
But The Donald hates looking stupid, so he cut in, saying, “We will see.” As if he actually knows anything about medicine or science!
Fact : Chloroquine Was NOT Approved By FDA To Treat COVID-19!
The fact of the matter is the US FDA approved chloroquine in 1944, and hydroxychloroquine in 1955, but neither have been approved for use against COVID-19.
On 19 March 2020, the US FDA issued a statement, with this section addressing chloroquine (with our emphasis) :
The FDA has been working closely with other government agencies and academic centers that are investigating the use of the drug chloroquine, which is already approved for treating malaria, lupus and rheumatoid arthritis, to determine whether it can be used to treat patients with mild-to-moderate COVID-19 to potentially reduce the duration of symptoms, as well as viral shedding, which can help prevent the spread of disease. Studies are underway to determine the efficacy in using chloroquine to treat COVID-19.
In the same statement, the US FDA also points out that :
[T]here are no FDA-approved therapeutics or drugs to treat, cure or prevent COVID-19.
Take our advice, please do NOT believe anything Donald Trump tells you. Listen to your Dr. Fauci and qualified scientists and doctors.
Stay safe, wherever you are!
