[text / observer net Qi Qian] to see the US epidemic situation deteriorated sharply. Trump ignored expert doctors ’opinions It is highly recommended that the so-called “special effect drug” hydroxychloroquine for the treatment of new coronary pneumonia. At the April 5 epidemic briefing, he again publicized the drug to the public.
Trump said that the federal government has purchased a large amount of hydroxychloroquine. Although the efficacy of the drug against the new coronavirus has not been confirmed, he said: “I am not a doctor, but I have common sense.” But when a reporter asked Fuch, a top American infectious disease expert on this issue, Trump stopped. .
However, due to Trump’s vigorous propaganda, it was once a tragedy: American old couples mistakenly took chloroquine additives and caused a death and a serious injury.
A Trump was killed halfway: “He has answered this question 15 times.”
According to the “New York Times” in the United States, at the White House routine outbreak conference on the 5th, Trump continued to “passionately promote” the treatment of the new coronavirus. “Special effect drug” hydroxychloroquine. Although many experts have repeatedly stressed that the efficacy of the drug has not been confirmed.
This time Trump admitted that he had no expertise on this issue. Trump said: “What do I know? I’m not a doctor.” Nonetheless, Trump insisted that the drug is now being tested, and “there are some strong signs” showing its potential.
Trump told reporters, “If it really works, it would be a pity that we didn’t act early.” He pointed out that the federal government has purchased and stored 29 million doses of this drug, “we are sending them to the military.” Prior to this, the US Food and Drug Administration (referred to as the esophagus) has issued an emergency authorization for the use of chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine.
He added: “I want people to live, and now I can only see people die. You should understand how to act in this situation. You should let go and do it. What can we lose?”
But the reason is Trump vigorously publicized that in March this year, a couple in their 60s in Arizona believed the truth: To prevent new coronary pneumonia, they mistakenly took chloroquine additives used to clean fish tanks. Eventually, it caused a tragedy. The husband died unfortunately, and his wife was in critical condition. He was treated in the intensive care unit.
Anthony S. Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, answered questions from reporters. A reporter asked him to express his views on hydroxychloroquine, but Trump immediately interrupted.
Trump made it clear that he did not want Foch to answer. “He has answered this question 15 times,” Trump said as he stopped.
The US “Capitol Hill” pointed out that under Trump’s recommendation, the federal government and officials have taken practical actions to promote hydroxychloroquine, and this issue has also become a point of conflict within the White House.
US Vice President Pence said on the 5th that the government is working with Michigan to make the drug widely available locally. A senior official of the Federal Emergency Management Agency responsible for organizing the supply chain said that the agency is giving priority to the delivery of hydroxychloroquine to pharmacies and hospitals in areas where the outbreak occurred.
US media Axios reported on the 5th that the White House senior trade adviser Peter Navarro and Fuch had a conflict in their efforts to promote the drug. At the special working group meeting on the 4th, Fudge insisted that it is too early to say how effective this medicine is. Navarro is the main force in the White House to promote hydroxychloroquine.
A source source told Axios: “.. Never like that kind of confrontation appeared yesterday in the Special Working Group meeting had everyone speak their minds, there have been heated debates, but never clashed, yesterday was the first time”
for special Lampe promoted the efficacy of hydroxychloroquine, and the Director of the US Food and Drug Administration and Foch have corrected it many times, but it has not worked. The US Food and Drug Administration approved the emergency use authorization (EUA) of chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine to treat inpatients infected with new coronavirus on March 28. According to the authorization, medical personnel must contact the local or state health department to obtain medicine.
Regarding the disagreement between the two factions in the White House, the New York Times once commented that this is a conflict between opinions and facts-it is also Trump’s trust in his intuition and the cautious, evidence-based method of scientists such as Fuch Conflicts. Trump seems eager to set aside long-established drug evaluation standards to support the treatment he recommends.
