“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.”

  1. 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.”

    Drug is ‘the key to defeating COVID-19,’ says infectious disease expert

    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.

    Risch, a professor of epidemiology and the director of Yale’s Molecular Cancer Epidemiology Laboratory, has been pushing for the drug’s use in the fight against the coronavirus for months. Last week in a Newsweek op-ed he called HCQ “the key to defeating COVID-19,” claiming its use — particularly when administered with one of two antibiotics and the nutritional supplement zinc — has been “shown to be highly effective” in treating high-risk coronavirus patients.

    On Tuesday, Risch went further, charging in an interview with Just the News that Fauci is perpetrating a “misinformation campaign” in his opposition to the drug.

    Fauci “has been maintaining a studious position that only randomized controlled trial evidence has any value,” Risch said, “and everything else he calls anecdotal.”

    Randomized controlled trials have been referred to as “the gold standard” of clinical research experiments; Fauci last month lamented the “paucity” of such trials regarding COVID-19 cures. But Risch said numerous other types of studies have significant practical value in determining effective courses of medical treatment.

    Risch shared a 2017 New England Journal of Medicine article by former Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Tom Frieden, one in which the author argued that randomized controlled trials have “substantial limitations” and that “many other data sources can provide valid evidence for clinical and public health action.”

  2. When Trump endorsed HCQ, he exposed fauci’s fraud. Drip by drip. As more doctors speak up about efficacy of HCQ, the more fraudulent fauci becomes, and he’s been in his position for 40 years? How many things has he gotten, “knowingly” wrong, and why is his name on the patents for hiv as well as rona?

  3. Apparently Dr. Fauci is God and only his OPINION matters. He knows more than everyone else. He is in possession of all wisdom, knowledge, and insight! Oh, Dr. Fauci, COVID God, please give us the ONLY possible treatment, your vaccine that you stand to profit from to the tune of tens of millions of dollars.

  4. Not to mention Fauci stands to make a boat load of $$ when a vaccine comes out. Conflict of interest much 🤔

  5. I suspect Trump has kept Fouchi on board to prevent him from joining the other side.

  6. I would bet my testicles that Dr Risch has no financial incentive in the treatment of CoVid unlike Dr Fauci !!!. I’m also a physician and I personally would not hesitate taking the three drugs HQC, Azythromycin and Zinc all which have amazing safety profiles. For gods sake I’ve taken HQC prior to going on a medical mission to a third world country no one not one single solitary Dr. thought it was unsafe !! You know why because it’s not, this drug has been around since for decades and has the safety profile of acetaminophen for crying out loud !!!. The left will destroy everything they touch and get involved in. We cannot and must not politicize medicine for if we do we all lose. The last thing I’d like to state is do your own research there’s plenty of front line physicians and I’m not talking about ER physicians that are using these drugs in a timely manner and seeing great success at preserving life. Many of whom have written medical articles proving their results. When does enough anecdotal evidence become empiric ??. Dr. Fauci is a physician in name only he hasn’t laid a finger on a human being in decades !!. And so called experts are too often WRONG !!.

  7. Yep!!! Because he wants max money for a different drug that costs way more than hydroxychloroquine!!!🤬🤬🤬

  8. Fauci studies it in 2004 and concluded it was effective against Covid yet he never mentions his own study. He’s in it to make money on a vaccine and Remdesivir

  9. Fauci’s motives are so suspect as to make his opinions irrelevant any more

  10. He’s a fraud, liar, perpetutator of crimes against humanity, he needs to GO!!!!!!

  11. why doesn’t Trump put these other doctors on the task force and let them duke it out on the CEO table like in the Apprentice 🤷🏻‍♂️😂😂😂

  12. They want to keep this plandemic, scamdemic whatever you wanna call it going. It didnt turn out how they hoped in my opinion. So sick of this shit!

  13. Fauci is #enemyofhumanity and works for Ching Chong Chyna

  14. I certainly hope his vested interests are exposed and he’s hung by his balls

  15. i see prison bars for him in the near near future: crimes against humanity
