Chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine are both drugs that are being used with some success right now.
While they have not been formally approved by the FDA as a treatment for the coronavirus, doctors around the country are using them in extreme cases and the drugs are also in trials in New York right now.
Even so, some Democrat governors across the country are beginning to outlaw the use of the drugs to treat coronavirus.
At the head of the pack is Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer.
After hearing doctors in at least two of the hospitals in her state were prescribing these two drugs to coronavirus patients, she has more or less outlawed its use for anything other than its current prescribed usage.
Whitmer has told pharmacists any prescription must be backed up with documentation from the doctor that the medicine is ONLY being prescribed for its intended uses that have already been approved by the FDA.
Additionally, she is asking other doctors to monitor their co-workers and to inform on them if they see them prescribing these drugs for coronavirus patients.
Nevada Democrat Governor Steve Sisolak has taken a similar stance, albeit not so harsh.
Sisolak has signed an official order that the only way these drugs can be prescribed to coronavirus patients is in a hospital setting.
Both reactions are a severe overreaction to a couple in Phoenix slugging down fish cleaner because they saw chloroquine phosphate on the label and thought it was the same things as the anti-malaria drug, which it obviously is not.
In that case, the man died and at the last report, his wife was in serious condition.
This would appear to be more about scoring some political points against Trump and to make him out to be some type of villain because two people were idiotic enough to use the fish cleaner as a cocktail.
Even so, expect more Democrat governors to follow suit, handcuffing what doctors can do in extreme cases in an attempt to save people’s lives.
