Was Trump right?
A viral article spreading across social media reads, “Trump Was Right: Study Shows Hydroxychloroquine Boosted Ventilated COVID Patients’ Survival by 200%.”
However, the official fact-checkers have maintained “No New Revelation on Hydroxychloroquine and COVID-19.”
A new study seems to indicates that Trump may have been right about hydroxychloroquine, Western Journal writes.
An observational study was published on MedRxiv that surveyed 255 patients infected with the coronavirus.
The study claims survival of the patients improved by nearly 200% when requiring intermittent mandatory ventilation, weight-adjusted hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin.
The study concluded, “Most Covid studies have not considered days of therapy, cumulative dose, or weight-adjusted dosing. We found that when the cumulative doses of two drugs, HCQ and AZM, were above a certain level, patients had a survival rate 2.9 times the other patients.”
Despite this study, a fact-check article states there are no new revelations on hydroxychloroquine. The article reads, “Researchers have studied whether the antimalarial drug hydroxychloroquine — pushed by then-President Donald Trump as early as March 2020 — is effective in treating COVID-19.”
The fact-checker concluded they haven’t found a benefit. It reads, “But randomized controlled clinical trials, in which one group of patients is given the medication and another receives standard care, haven’t found a benefit in mortality or other clinical outcomes in hospitalized patients.”
TRENDING 👇 Texas Considers Banning Ben & Jerry’s
Ben & Jerry’s is well-known for its radical left-wing activism.
Now Texas is considering banning the company statewide, Fox News reports. A top Texas official — State Comptroller Glenn Hegar — said he is considering banning Ben & Jerry’s statewide.
This move comes after the company announced it will no longer sell ice cream in “Occupied Palestinian Territory,” preventing some Israelis from buying the ice cream. Hegar has reportedly directed his staff to review whether Ben & Jerry’s or its parent company Unilever have violated the state’s “boycott Israel” laws. Fox News reported:
Texas law under Chapter 808 bars companies from refusing, terminating business or taking “any action that is intended to penalize, inflict economic harm on or limit commercial relations” with Israel… “Texans have made it very clear that they stand with Israel and its people,” Hegar said in a statement Thursday. “We oppose actions that could undermine Israel’s economy and its people.”
This decision is appearing to immediately backfire as critics allege it’s not only “outrageous and blatant anti-Israel,” but also it’s illegal. In response, Charles Mizrahi, who is editor of Alpha Investor and host of “The Charles Mizrahi Show”, said “Not only is Ben and Jerry’s boycott outrageous and blatant anti-Israel, it’s illegal. Israeli law requires the local distributor to sell in all of Israel. The distributor doesn’t have the option to pick and choose where their product is sold.”
