That makes a change
I would Imagine if HCQ is found to be effective and is in fact a game changer, doctors and nurses around the world will collectively sigh a breath of relief.
Florida teen received hydrochloriquine at home before dying of COVID-19 at hospital, report says
Oh gosh, they probably forgot the Zinc.
Her mother, a nurse, and a man identified in the report as her father, a physician assistant, gave the girl azithromycin — an antibiotic being studied as a potential COVID-19 treatment — as a protective measure, the report states.
But on June 13, the girl developed a frontal headache, sinus pressure, and mild cough. The family assumed they were the result of a sinus infection, the report states.
On June 19, the girl's mother noticed that she looked "gray" while sleeping. The girl was then given an unspecified dose of hydroxychloroquine — an arthritis and lupus drug some, including President Donald J. Trump, have touted as a possible treatment for COVID-19.
The report does not state if the girl had a prescription for either drug.
Covid-19 is a bacterial disease, not a virus.
Azithromycin is an anti-bacterial, not an anti-viral.

6 days after symptoms appeared, after noticing "gray skin"... which could be a sign of acute anemia. I have been warning about acute anemia with this virus for some time. It attacks the blood as well as lung tissue. That tells me the virus was already in her blood and she needed to have already been in the hospital.
ALL prescription medications are intended to be taken under a doctor's care. That's why they require prescriptions. We don't even know how much of either drug was given to her. Did she get a lethal dose? Did she have contraindicators for either medication? We don't know; all we know from that report is she was given two drugs by her parents, who apparently had a neural malfunction themselves as I would expect any medical professional to know better than to give unprescribed experimental drugs without consulting a doctor.
What is it? Why are you so dead-set against hydroxychloroquine?
We're not talking about the other treatments she received as well. Not sure why you decided to deviate.
You're not a qualified physician Redneck.
I'm not dead set against hydroxychloroquine. I'm against the false narrative being pushed along that it's a reliable treatment for this virus, when there's been no consensus, or solid evidence, that it is.
Why are you so deadset for it? Why are others here so deadset for it? Would have known about it before Trump brought it up? I think we both know that answer.
Because a young girl is dead.
Neither are you.
I'm for continuing to listen to front line doctors who keep reporting success with the treatment,

At the other end of the spectrum I've argued with people on this site that early on when HCQ was mentioned as a possible cure to take it with a grain of salt, one member was adamant that if a family member of his was sick with covid he would march into the hospital and demand that they be treated with HCQ even if it went against the doctors recommendation. To the point they would threaten to use force to make it happen.

Yes, that's why a rely on sources and the opinions of qualified physicians, like Dr Anthony Fauci...
And Hydroxychloroquine didn't do a thing.

Yet to continue to fail in referencing them on here, along with others Redneck.
