    Sorry! Thought you were snarking at me as usual.

    Trump also didnít mean 15 deaths, but 15 active cases.

    I’ve actually been refraining from snarking at you for a few days now. Just don’t take whatever I say as being personal towards you because it’s not.

    Mom's still not infected. Thanks for your loving concern 78.

    Hopefully, her place won't lose dozens, as they did at her neighbor memory care in Holyoke.

    Nice of you to ask.

    1. You post about my mom, someone I never bring up.
    2. “???” Me
    3. “Oh, you must have missed my earlier post about my mom, just hope yours is ok.“ You
    4. “She is doing fine. Thanks for asking.”

    But now you’ve spent multiple posts getting pissy at me for my response because I didn’t ask about your mom even though you said she’s ok?!?!?

    This makes no sense to me.

    Your "concern" on all of this is very much, if not exclusively, on a macro level.

    I mention my mom's memory care is infected by a worker from Soldier's Home in Holyoke, where almost 2 DOZEN have died. Same type of place. CO-INFECTED.

    Anything from you? Nada

    Right back to your typical snark.

    Whatever dude. You are who you are.

    To be clear.... you are very good at snark & demonizing R's.
    That seems to be all?

    So now DonDon is recommending from the Bully Pulpit of the WH that hydroxychlorquine be used as a prophylactic by Doctors and Nurses specifically. But lets face it, if he mentions Doctors and Nurses, its just a cover for EVERYBODY. To the best of my knowledge there is not even any trials underway for the use of the drug as a prophylactic v COVID-19 virus.

    Highlights for hydroxychloroquine
    Hydroxychloroquine oral tablet is available as a brand-name drug and a generic drug. Brand name: Plaquenil.
    Hydroxychloroquine comes only as a tablet you take by mouth.
    Hydroxychloroquine is used to treat malaria, lupus erythematosus, and rheumatoid arthritis.

    Important warnings
    Child danger warning: Accidentally swallowing just a few tablets has been fatal in some children. Keep this drug in a child-resistant bottle out of reach of children.
    Worsened skin conditions warning: Tell your doctor if you have skin conditions, such as psoriasis or porphyria. This medication may make these conditions worse.
    Eye damage: This medication can damage your eyes, leading to vision problems that can be permanent. This damage is more likely when the drug is used in high doses.
    Heart damage: This medication can cause heart disease. Although uncommon, some cases have been fatal.

    The drug is not without certain side effects and I don't see how attempting to use it as a prophylactic would meet the standard of the "compassionate care" stipulation.

    Side effect of COVID19 is death.

    I actually think the thing that shows the most promise and for which in other instances has proven effective is convalescent plasma loading, taking the plasma from someone that has recovered from the virus and using it to help people trying to fight off the virus. It certainly stands as much of a chance if not a better chance of being effective than any drug that has not been tailored to COVID-19 that has side effects.

    There is nothing that suggests it should be used as a prophylactic and Trump is as usual WAYYYY out of his depth.

    That is up to the physician whether to prescribe and manage the side effects.

    Then donjon should SHUT UP. He is not Dr DonDon. If anything he's Dr IDIOT!

    Perhaps he could use the time to figure out what a strategic stockpile is and learn how it should be used as opposed to reinventing it just because ........he want to squat over single thing and mark his territory. The guy has never been more than a jumble of malignant pathologies and that is all he is today.
