Media, Dems Have Horrible Take on Trump Expressing Hope in Drug Combination to Treat Wuhan Coronavirus

President Trump has expressed his hope in the drug combination of hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin, calling them a game changer in the battle against the Wuhan coronavirus. Also optimistic about their efficacy, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced over the weekend that the state will begin implementing trials of the drugs on Tuesday. But some Democrats and the media are trying to spin what Trump has said about the drugs as dangerous.

First, Rep. Ted Lieu cautioned his followers on Twitter against using them to treat the virus as though they were over-the-counter drugs. To be clear, only a doctor can prescribe them.

Then came Bloomberg with their reporting that people in Nigeria have overdosed on chloroquine "after U.S. President Trump praised the anti-malaria drug as a treatment for the coronavirus."

And finally, MSN is trying to prove something here, but exactly what is unclear.

A Florida man who was on his death bed because of the Wuhan coronavirus credited hydroxychloroquine with saving his life.

"To me, there was no doubt in mind that I wouldn't make it until morning," said Rio Giardinieri, 52. "So to me, the drug saved my life."

Actor Daniel Dae Kim also said a "drug cocktail" that included hydroxychloroquine and a Z-Pak led to his recovery.
