Ever since President Trump declared that hydroxychloroquine could be a game-changer, Democrats have attacked the use of the drug.
Despite reports claiming over 50 successful tests overseas, the United States is still restricting its use in states across the country with Democratic governors.
Apparently, they would rather people die than to admit he was right about anything.
However, a couple of Democratic politicians have said hydroxychloroquine saved their lives.
Democratic state Rep. Karen Whitsett of Detroit said that it took her a while to get tested and that she had developed pneumonia.
Her condition got worse and she requested that she be given hydroxychloroquine even though Democrats were in the middle of demonizing the drug.
“It went from the headaches being severe to fluid building up in my lungs, to sweats breaking out to the cough and my breathing is labored. It all happened in a matter of hours.”
“I did have a difficult time, even that day, obtaining the medication because of an order that was put down in my state. And it was on that day, so you can imagine how terrified I was that I had to beg and plead and go through a whole lot to try to get the medication.”
Now, Democratic New York City Councilman Paul Vallone is crediting President Trump and hydroxychloroquine for saving his life as well.
He already suffers from sarcoidosis, an incurable auto-immune disease that mostly affects the lungs and lymph glands.
That complicated things for him because his auto-immune system could not help fight off the disease.
Things were looking grim and then he began taking hydroxychloroquine and within two or three days he says he was able to breathe on his own again and within five days was “cured.”
Vallone’s brother Peter, a former city councilman and a current civil court judge in Queens, touted the drug in a Facebook post.
“I guess all those doctors who are prescribing it are right. This drug is already on the market and the patent is up so it’s cheap. A new drug won’t be. So big money does not want this drug to be used. Always follow the money,” Peter Vallone wrote on May 12. He attached a link to a study from New York University’s Grossman School of Medicine that found patients given the antimalarial drug hydroxychloroquine along with zinc sulphate and the antibiotic azithromycin were 44% less likely to die from the coronavirus.
