You realize that Breitbrart story is misinformation, right? They even include a link to the original story debunking their partisan hate fest.
CARSON CITY — Gov. Steve Sisolak has signed an emergency measure to safeguard the threatened supply of two drugs being hoarded for possible use in the treatment of COVID-19. The governor signed the emergency regulation Tuesday on the recommendation of the state Board of Pharmacy.
What he signed was to safeguard the supply of these drugs because they’re useful and so people wouldn’t hoard them. Not because herp derp Democrats want to kill you.
Please explain how you can hoard something you can only get by prescription, and only in the amounts perscribed?

Hydroxycloriquine? Are you sure about that?
Maybe you haven't done your homework.
Chloroquine is very dangerous in overdose. It is rapidly absorbed from the gut. In 1961, published studies showed three children who took overdoses died within 2.5 hours of taking the drug. While the amount of the overdose was not cited, the therapeutic index for chloroquine is known to be small. Symptoms of overdose include headache, drowsiness, visual disturbances, nausea and vomiting, cardiovascular collapse, seizures, and sudden respiratory and cardiac arrest.
Hydroxychloroquine, a less toxic derivative of chloroquine, is effective in inhibiting SARS-CoV-2 infection in vitro
Given that hydroxychloroquine is already available in the US, comes in oral dosage forms, has a known safety profile

The OP is a lie, if you are an inpatient, doc can prescribe/do whatever he feels best, if an outpatient, 30 day script, no refil.
That means, according to McInerny, doctors in hospitals and emergency rooms can still prescribe those drugs to treat an admitted patient, diagnosed with COVID-19.
