The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to spread across the United States. Although those under 50 have a death rate of no more than approximately 0.4%, the death rate increases substantially by every decade you’ve lived past 50 and for individuals with preexisting conditions like heart disease and diabetes.

There is still no vaccine for this highly contagious disease. Despite moving at lighting speed with minimal red tape, health officials estimate it will take between 12 to 18 months to obtain and mass-produce one. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t drugs that have shown, in some patients at least, to alleviate COVID-19 symptoms. Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) and Zithromax (azithromycin) could be used to fight COVID-19. Although the left responds with fire and fury even when President Trump cautiously acknowledges that.

Deroy Murdock, writing for Newsmax, reports:

Trump discussed this 65-year-old anti-malaria drug during a daily briefing on this pandemic. “It’s shown very, very encouraging early results” among researchers Trump said. These two drugs “taken together, have a real chance to be one of the biggest game changers in the history of medicine,” he declared via Twitter.

“Very encouraging” and “real chance” are words of aspiration — not prescription.

And Trump repeatedly has said that these drugs ultimately might fail, but should be investigated. “What the hell do you have to lose?” he asked.

Never mind! The Trump haters practically sued him for medical malpractice.

To be so blinded by hate at a time of unprecedented crisis is the worst kind of Trump Derangement Syndrome.

It is so obvious with the Democrats motive really are. They want to prolong shutting down the economy and crashing it so Trump has a less chance of winning re-election, second the reason why they don’t want this medication out and him talking about it is because if it works the way they say ,this would all come to an end and we could reopen the economy .they want economy to stay the way it is so they can get more stimulus packages to infiltrate their socialist ideology into the stimulus packages. If it ended too soon it would not give them time to accomplish this. They would let Americans died in our economy crash and burn to accomplish turning this country into a socialist hell hole.

It may be obvious to you since you believe everything Trump says. You want real the facts about who knew what and when; read this: U.S. spy agencies collected raw intelligence hinting at a public health crisis in Wuhan, China, in November, 2019. The intelligence came in the form of communications intercepts and overhead images showing increased activity at health facilities. The intelligence was distributed to some federal public health officials in the form of a “situation report” in late November 2019. The current and former officials said that while there was not a formal assessment produced in November — and hence no “intelligence product” in the jargon of the spy agencies — there was intelligence that caught the attention of public health analysts and fueled formal assessments written in December 2019. That material and other information, including from news and social media reports, ultimately found its way into President Donald Trump’s intelligence briefing book in January. It is unknown if he read the information, but we all know he doesn’t read any briefing bulletins. Even after public health authorities began sounding the alarm in January 2020, Trump took few steps to ready itself for a pandemic. There was no effort to boost national stockpiles of medical equipment or encourage social distancing, for example. While Trump touts his decision to stop flights from China coming to the U.S. on Jan. 31, about 381,000 people had flown from China to the U.S. in January, according to an analysis by the New York Times. Trump Lied; People Died.

According to a previously unrevealed White House playbook, the government should’ve begun a federal-wide effort to procure that personal protective equipment at least three months ago. Hours after the United States became the nation with the largest number of reported coronavirus cases. President Trump appeared on Fox News and expressed doubt about shortages of medical supplies, boasted about the country’s testing capacity, and criticized his predecessor’s response to an earlier outbreak of a different disease. Also, Sen. Chris Murphy, a Connecticut Democrat, says that Trump administration officials declined an offer of early congressional funding assistance that he and other senators made on Feb. 5 during a meeting to discuss the coronavirus.

One word describes Democrats. IRRATIONAL.
IF something will make Trump look good, they are against it. IF they can come up with a lie that makes Trump look bad, you can bet they will put it out.

Socialists hope to make the “best” (i.e. WORST) of this crisis. (Besides, the dead always seem to vote Democrat.)

“You never want a serious crisis to go to waste. …it’s an opportunity to do things that you think you could not before.” — Rahm Emanuel, Obama’s WH Chief of Staff
