Skip to comments.Yale epidemiologist: Dr. Fauci running 'misinformation campaign' against hydroxychloroquine
Posted on 07/30/2020 5:19:22 AM PDT by RandFan
Dr. Harvey Risch, a noted Yale epidemiologist, has accused White House coronavirus task force member Dr. Anthony Fauci of waging a "misinformation campaign" against the drug hydroxychloroquine, claiming the medication has shown consistently encouraging results in treating COVID-19 when used properly.
Hydroxychloroquine has been at the center of a protracted political debate since March, when President Trump cited the drug as a promising possible treatment for the novel coronavirus. HCQ has long been used by doctors to treat malaria along with other syndromes such as arthritis and lupus. The World Health Organization lists it as an essential medicine, while nearly five million Americans hold prescriptions for it.
Since Trump's speculative endorsement of the drug, media outlets and medical officials have for several months aggressively promoted various medical trials that have determined the drug has no effectiveness in fighting COVID-19; many commentators have also insisted, in spite of the drug's decades-long safe track record, that it is too dangerous to be used to cure the disease.
Among the drug's critics has been Fauci. In March, the longtime director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infection Diseases dismissed claims of HCQ's effectiveness as "anecdotal" and has periodically voiced that skepticism over the course of the pandemic.
On Tuesday during an interview on "Good Morning America," Fauci further downplayed the drug's purported benefit, claiming that "the overwhelming prevailing clinical trials that have looked at the efficacy of hydroxychloroquine have indicated that it is not effective in [treating] coronavirus disease."
Risch, however, is sharply criticizing Fauci's approach to evaluating the drug's effectiveness, arguing that repeated trials and tests have shown that it is markedly effective at treating COVID-19 so long as it is administered properly.

Hire this man! TODAY!
Glad this Doc. is calling Fausi out.
And Trump continues to praise Fauci and offers only mild criticism of his campaign against Hydroxychloroquine!
Trump is scared crapless of Fauci and covid. It’s sad to watch.
Dr. Rand Paul has also be critical of Fauci :)
‘Hydroxychloroquine has been at the center of a protracted political debate since March’
I had been among those who was skeptical of this treatment regime when it was first promoted; I now believe the smear campaign against it is nothing less than criminal...
Tony Fauci is 80 years old, and I guess should not be prosecuted when this stuff calms down on that basis; but many ‘experts’, governors, and mayors who have made us knuckle under to their power trips should be looking at a stretch in the clink...
From text I received.
Group Of Medical Doctors Exposing The Plot To Stop Hydroxychloroquine And Promote The Very Expensive Remdesivir Have Web Site Removed
A group of medical professionals called Americas Frontline Doctors are trying very hard right now to expose a plot to prevent people from having access to hydroxychloroquine, HCQ, which is very effective against the COVID-19 coronavirus, and instead promote a new drug called Remdesivir, from Gilead pharmaceuticals.
The cost per dose for HCQ is under $10, the cost per dose for Remdesivir is over $3,000! Do you see where this is going? Do you see why Bill Gates has invested so much money into vaccines and drugs?
‘And Trump continues to praise Fauci and offers only mild criticism of his campaign against Hydroxychloroquine!’
to our effeminate sheeple populace, Dr. Tony walks on water, the only adult on Trump’s team of juveniles; Trump firing him would ensure his loss in November...
Since Trump can’t seemingly fire or control Fauci, he should bring Risch on to the taskforce and have him sit all over Fauci in every forum and give great public exposure to Risch’s studies and conclusions. Fauci is part of the cabal of those who intend to take down not only Trump, but the country IMO.
I encourage everyone to keep posting links to the Simone Golds White Coat Summit videos-
I have watched all six hours of the video. My two main takeaways from the videos.
1. The HCQ Cocktail needs to be given early as soon as a vulnerable person tests positive.
2. The Medical Doctors are being pressured by their State Medical Boards to not advocate for HCQ’s use.
THanks, That’s one of the best news articles I’ve read on HCQ.
Reading that article took me back to a time, long ago, when journalist presented a balanced view of two sides, and provided the basis for both... yet, didn’t seem to push an agenda.
I’m not familiar with this website. Just looking at it, looks interesting.
John Solomon (investigative journalist) has something to do with it. I think he’s an editor. You may have seen him on FOX.
It’s a good website and they break interesting stories!
The linked article has some good points, but then it steps on its own *$%@ when it ends with several studies purporting to show Hydroxychloroquine doesn’t work. HOWEVER, it misses the main point of the doctor interviewed in its own article. Namely, that if you do tests without zinc, the tests are going to fail.
I’ve known since early March (thanks to Freepers) that the key to making HCQ effective is by taking zinc at the same time. I now wish Trump would have said zinc + HCQ was a “possible game changer” instead of HCQ alone. Then the media and democrats would have done study after study on the combo trying to prove him wrong, and we would all know for certain if the combo is helpful in mitigating the effects of C-19.
The scarf and the dwarf are both running around telling everybody that HCQ is bad and ineffective against COVID-19. They’re shameless liars and Trump should put a stop to it.
They were removed from Facebook and their website was taken down.
They can be found in Parler. Look for @AmericasFrontlineDoctors
The government put up a fake website AmericasFrontlineDoctors.org instead of .com.
Let me tell you all from experience that clinical trials can fail for many reason. But, the major reason is usually in a faulty Design...
For example, the chosen dosage(s) might be wrong or the patient population chosen for enrollment might not match the profile for effectiveness...on and on...
The world has been told “anecdotally” by a growing number of doctors that HCQ given simultaneously with the mineral Zinc sulphate and the antibiotic Zithromax (Z-Pac) shows great results in treating Covid-19 when patients are identified with Covid-19 infection or symptoms early in the disease process.
We also know that the elderly accounts for likely close to 85% of Covid-19 deaths and children/young people rarely die from Covid-19. Also, those in between only struggle or die if they have a comorbidity such h as diabetes, obesity, hypertension, etc).
These are all facts that doctors can agree on, even Dr. Fauxci!
OK, so if you design a Covid-19 clinical trial that has one of these faults:
* Using HCQ alone with all patients
* HCQ given alone at a very high dosage (with risk of heart toxicity)
* HCQ alone with only ICU patients on ventilators (end stage of Covid disease)
* HCQ alone with only pediatric patients
* HCQ alone with otherwise healthy patients (no co-morbidities)
Guess what the results will show? HCQ will show no effectiveness and in the high dose trial you will see cardiac toxicity as a serious adverse event...
The biggest problem with recent studies is the first fault of bad design...These chowderheads have not included Zinc and/or Z-Pac in the drug regimen.
My guess is that the 3-drug cocktail was excluded BY DESIGN...so they could show data that HCQ lacks efficacy...
But, Dr. Fauxci has also cited earlier studies of HCQ cardiac toxicity when administered to patients with other diseases such as Malaria and Lupus...early studies at high dosages.
Of course, Dr. Fauxci is technically correct, but he is also dishonest because the studies were not designed to evaluate this 3-Drug regimen in Covid-19.
As a supposed medical researcher and scientist of the highest ethical standards, he should be ashamed of himself!!!
His pronouncements are allowing people to reach end-stage Covid-19 and to die needlessly...all this so that Big Pharma can develop new and very expensive drugs and vaccines for this disease.
It’s as simple as that...it’s all about the Benjamins with a side benefit of hurting DJT!
Agree!! POTUS needs to hire THIS doc.
Here is Dr Todaros latest published article about HCQ...hes one of the Twitter/YouTube banned Capitol Hill docs...
Gilead: Twenty-one billion reasons to discredit hydroxychloroquine (ORIGINAL ARTICLE)
You saw how Fauci squirmed when Rand got to challenge him in two hearings.
If Dr. Risch were added to the task force and allowed to challenge Fauci in meetings every day I have the feeling Dr. Tony would quit in about a week.
