His own CDC representative said they were only doing trials and were not gonna know immediately if it works.

And here's trump saying "this drug has been on the market for years and we're gonna use it to treat COVID almost immediately!"


It's just one of the many things considered. Things that might be usable.

The New York Times: It’s Dangerous to Be Ruled by Fear

And what if a “suppression” strategy of school closures, restaurant shutdowns, home quarantines, bans on gatherings of more than a few people, and other methods of social distancing lasts 18 months — the estimate of how long it might take to develop and distribute a safe and effective vaccine?

In that case, we are looking at a century-defining calamity that could bankrupt the government; wreck nearly every business in America, large or small; disrupt supply chains and create critical shortfalls of food, medicines, and other essential items; lead to dramatic increases in deaths of loneliness and despair; tempt political leaders, including the president, to disavow democratic norms in the name of public health (including by seeking to postpone elections); and create widespread, perhaps deadly, civil unrest.


The article is a lot longer, but I liked this part enough to copy it.
The details of the above post are subject to leftist infighting.

I officially endorse Fivey Fox for president of the United States.

I hope whatever faction I find most politically appealing has weapons for me and people who can train me how to use them.

Moscareinas is an unexpectedly prosperous democratic republic whose territories include 54% of the western Indian Ocean, the IRL BIOT, Comoros, the Seychelles, Mauritius, and Reunion. Not included: Madagascar.

Moscans are torn about Madagascar.
