Here in the US, there’s been a crazed anti-hydroxychloroquine hysteria because Trump said it might be a possible COVID treatment. And if Trump says he likes Mondays, 95% of the media will declare that Monday is “like literally a Nazi day of the week.”
What I didn’t get was why there was a similar hysteria in France that culminated in an actual banning of the drug as a treatment for COVID. Finally, somebody I know from France explained. WHO is obsessed with hcq because
1. It’s cheap and WHO is all about lobbying for pharma giants and their expensive drugs
2. WHO is upset with Trump over the withdrawal of funding and tries to stick it to him. France is easily pressurable because of the dealings their Haute Conseil de la Santé Publique leadership has with Tedros.
I personally have no dog in the hydroxychloroquine fight because I believe doctors should prescribe whatever they think best and it’s not up for public debate. And please don’t say “science” because science changes its mind daily.
