    I think the entire government (republicans and democrats) are doing a good job so far. I think they are finally starting to put away party politics and focusing on working together. They could do a lot better, but they are on the right path.

    That would be a blessing.

    This is 4 months in and hospitals don't even have PPE, masks or protective gowns, not to mention testing kits, which are of vital necessity for healthcare workers who are putting themselves at risk when treating the hundreds of patients they are treating. This is the U.S. of America and we can't even get masks and gowns to hospitals and still short on testing kits. Hospitals are actually requesting that citizens make masks at home with online guides on how to make them. Exactly how is this the federal government doing a good job. If the healthcare workers themselves get sick, which has already been happening, then what? Talk is cheap.

    Clear and unconflicting instructions are important in a time of crisis, of possible panic.

    Which means that any US version of Li Wenliang on the task force who goes outside the normal channels and causes alarm will be in very hot water too.

    So medical professionals regularly having to inform the public Trump is wrong after Trump makes medically false statements, is bad? Agreed.

    Pity Trump keeps doing it.

    He was a medical officer at WHO when WHO eradicated smallpox. Brilliant claiming to have helped defeat the disease is like Ray Croc claiming he invented the hamburger.

    Having? They should be used to lying to patients, yes? Or giving them some amount of possibly false hope, sweet talk.

    And it happened twice again today.

    Firstly regarding whether the FDA has approved a drug to treat COVID19:

    President Trump, at his daily press briefing... "We're going to be able to make that drug available almost immediately. And that's where the FDA has been so great. They've gone through the approval process - it's been approved."

    However, the FDA has made it clear it has not been approved for treating those infected with the Covid-19 coronavirus... "There are no FDA-approved therapeutics or drugs to treat, cure or prevent Covid-19."


    And secondly, Trump was today touting that drug (which has been around for decades) on twitter as "one of the biggest game changers in the history of medicine [with regard to treating COVID19]".

    This contradicting Trump's chief medical officer's statements at the last press conference. Dr Fauci, at the press conference, when asked about whether the drug was useful, answered: "No, the answer... is no. The information that you're referring to [about the effectiveness of the drug for treating COVID19] specifically is anecdotal... It was not done in a controlled clinical trial, so you really can't make any definitive statement about it."

    From your link "At a later briefing, Mr Trump said chloroquine had been approved for "compassionate use". This is where a doctor can give a drug that is yet to be cleared by the government to a patient in a life threatening condition. Doctors are able to prescribe chloroquine in these circumstances, as it's a registered drug."

    Scrambled message, but it's going to be available and seems approved for emergency use.

    And secondly, Trump was today touting that drug (which has been around for decades) on twitter as "one of the biggest game changers in the history of medicine [with regard to treating COVID19]".
    From your link, the full tweet

    HYDROXYCHLOROQUINE & AZITHROMYCIN, taken together, have a real chance to be one of the biggest game changers in the history of medicine. The FDA has moved mountains - Thank You! Hopefully they will BOTH (H works better with A, International Journal of Antimicrobial Agents)...


    Is there a real chance that you are able to read and understand the words "a real chance"?

    Is there a real chance that you will take back this Fake News statement about Trump?

    It's amazing how much your brain is warped by TDS that you can twist anything in favor of the one you worship.
