The President has announced a FDA approved prescription cure for the Chinese Corona Virus(Wuflu), from Townhall:

President Trump confirmed Thursday that Hydroxychloroquine has been approved by FDA for prescription treatment of COVID-19.

Understand this: Hydroxychloroquine is not a new drug to treat a new disease. Hydroxychloroquine is old drug which has approved and used to treat Malaria. Remember the goal of the Food and Drug Administration is not to treat diseases by approving drug, but rather to prevent lawsuit of survivors with nasty side effects. The safety of Hydroxychloroquine is a proven fact.

Addendum: Eric

All true.

That said, one of the goals of the FDA is to make sure that when you prescribe something for a particular illness it’s going to be effective against that illness.

And therein lies the red tape. As is pointed out elsewhere, what’s holding us up, is the precautionary principle, which is preventing us from responding to this situation correctly. That’s why Trump has been chafing at the red tape.
