A recent poll of more than 6,000 doctors from 30 countries found that 37 percent rated hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) as the best treatment for novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
Yet, during a recent webinar on COVID-19, doctors across the United States described threats from many governors and state medical boards for prescribing HCQ and azithromycin “off label” for non-hospitalized COVID-19 patients.
It was shocking to hear that our front-line warriors are not only having their medical decisions blocked, but are being threatened with disciplinary actions, and even loss of license in some states.In War on COVID-19 Doctors Need Freedom to Use “Weapons” At Hand
I like my doctor and do not want to change, but his office claims “there is no treatment for early covid.” The nurse I spoke with agreed the situation is horrible but said there is nothing she can do. Covid is a major moral issue. Hundreds of thousands have died due to failure to receive cheap and available prescription drugs. More doctors need to step forward publicly, defy their overlords and treat anyway, or at least talk more forcefully among themselves. This issue has become their responsibility more than any other professional group. ABN
