Dr. Fauci: “yeah, of course” I would prescribe chloroquine to coronavirus patients.
quote:

CHRIS STIGALL:If you’re a doctor listening to me right now and a patient with coronavirus feels like they want to try [Chloroquine] and you’re their doctor, you’re not Anthony Fauci the guy running the coronavirus task force, would you say ‘alright, we’ll give it a whirl’?

DR. ANTHONY FAUCI: Yeah, of course, particularly if people have no other option. You want to give them hope. In fact, for physicians in this country, these drugs are approved drugs for other reasons. They’re anti-malaria drugs and they’re drugs against certain autoimmune diseases, like lupus. Physicians throughout the country can prescribe that in an off-label way. Which means they can write it for something it was not originally approved for. People do that all the time, and it really is an individual choice between the physician and his or her patient as to whether or not they want to do that.

"Once all of the $3000 patented drugs with no generic alternatives made by big pharma companies that line DCs pockets run out, of course!"

This was from March 25th.

I highly doubt he would say it today.

He is very inconsistent in what he says and switches his stances constantly. Also, there is a tendency to give a lot of generalized truisms that aren't very relevant.

Yes doctors are able to prescribe it off-label and they do it often. But now based on his words some states are even banning doctors from prescribing it for this use.

But our local hucksters Jake, TigerDoc and Roger Klarvin said this doesn't work

It works, he just won't say it now. He probably regrets saying it.

But then he’d be just as likely to say it again next week.

There’s no consistency to what he says. And I believe that’s by design.

Literally re-read every word you just said. And then think through the implications of them.

Liberal use of a readily available preventative drug used as a prophylactic. All in conjunction with public health measures already in place.

Early intervention upon manifestation of symptoms with least invasive method while conserving scarce resources.

Most invasive method of care as last resort.

That is not the strategy we are using.

Patient presents and we go straight to most invasive (and costly).

One key component is missing and there is no good reason why. We are not even conducting in VIVO testing to determine efficacy even though there is ample anecdotal evidence of success upon disease onset if treated early. We have discarded it out of hand. With no published testing to support our position. It has just been vilified and dismissed.

Why?

This is not medicine. This is politics.

When this started I know that a lot of doctors wrote themselves scripts for HCQ and are still taking it.

When he’s asked a direct question, he tends to run off on unrelated tangents that distract away from that original question...therefore he never has to answer and thus pin himself down.

He tried that shite with Jordan yesterday, but Jordan wasn’t having any of it. And you saw what happened: Fauci got extremely flustered.

The guy is a fraud. A career bureaucrat.

I think Fauci has snakes loose in his noodle. The man is all over the place and an embarrassment.

I am glad he didn't slam on HCQ this time, but who knows what the hell he will say in the next interview?

Its almost like it is a novel virus or something, geesh how could they not have researched it before.

Expect plenty more shifting from everyone for the next several years, its what we humans do as we learn.

Pretending you know everything and refusing to shift based on new data is a sign of a mental disorder that seems to be spreading like wildfire in 2020.

Seems like a typical con-artist fortune teller.

Then don't destroy the damn economy with a goddamn bag of guesses. The little fricker has been a train wreck for at least the 7 months.

It’s almost like if we’re going to uproot the lives and livelihoods of every man, woman and child in this country, we should make our decisions based on what we know for sure, and not on what we don’t.

It is fundamentally irresponsible for this guy to publicly change his mind every 2 weeks and his propensity to do so has made this situation so fricking political that nobody knows what to believe.

This week he said we all need to be walking around in fricking goggles like lunatics. There is positively no scientific basis for ANY of his recommendations.

This is utterly idiotic. He is a metaphor for ablsolutely everything wrong with the over-emotional, fear mongering, do as I say, not as I do, gaslighting, unprincipled, goalpost moving, left.
