Chloroquine is a rampant public health problem in India - it is yet another drug epidemic in itself. And it is poised to hit the United States; especially after the American president's endorsement by planetary dispatch.
So, if you grab every book on the subject of Epidemiology that you can get your grubby hands on, and erase everything relating to pandemics; then viruses don't exist anymore, right? That seems to have been Trump's only strategy, figuratively speaking - the only thing he could come up with, during the first stage of the Coronavirus Global Pandemic.
Maybe a Real Estate Shyster and a bunch of brain-dead mobsters are not the best choice to lead a global pandemic response?
The "Disrupters" are trying to obstruct the scientific method. And not just about ultimate conclusions, which we expect to be debated and argued about. They are using a military-like tactic to retreat while fighting over every foot of ground. Why? To suppress the death count.
There's another dirty trick going on if you want to hear about yet another: quality serology testing is already available in China. Hundreds of thousands of kits have been made available to us, but are being held up by the F.D.A. Another stupid delay, when every delay costs lives.
TRUMP: "I was thinking about this yesterday while someone was trying to brief me on something "urgent", I wasn't paying attention to their boring screams because I was thinking about this...what if I dropped nukes all over the U.S., you know, in the air, so it didn't harm any businesses. The radiation would come down so beautiful, like an invisible hero to kill the invisible enemy, Corona."
Democratic politicians are giving Trump all the rope he wants - to hang himself. But that is murder.
According to Oz, one "appetizing opportunity" is to reopen our schools. Oz says there would "only" be a 2-3% mortality rate among schoolchildren. Approximately 1.5 million kids. Way to "get our mojo back" on the deaths of over a million children! What a compassionate "doctor".
This looks more like the last stage of a coup. Consolidating power in himself by stacking the courts as his puppets, discrediting belief in the truth by attacking the press as fake and rigging elections with voter suppression. Spreading propaganda and lies while facilitating Russian-aided disinformation on social media. Trying to shut down the postal service which means shutting down voting by mail. Lastly, raising a fascist, well armed militia to stand against his political enemies. The threat to our democracy couldn't be more urgent.
While Trump may personally fawn over those who have managed to achieve wealth and celebrity, whether in sports, showbiz, business or tech, the low-wage members of those same minorities are seen as little more than indentured servants considered disposable to society, particularly when the denial of financial support from the government forces them back into high-risk service jobs too soon to be safe.
