Donald Trump continues to promote hydroxychloroquine as a possible method to fight COVID-19 despite no scientific proof that it actually does. Those in the scientific community all concur that a lot more evidence and testing is needed in order to back up such claims. What makes this a problem? People who rely on the drug (such as people with rheumatoid arthritis) are having a difficult time getting access because other people are hoarding the drug in the event that they might get COVID-19.
If I was a person who relied on the drug for my medical well-being, I would be really frustrated and worried right now. It would be really nice if Trump let the medical experts like Dr. Anthony Fauci handle this matter. It’s not fair to people who really need this drug. Also, it would be nice if people didn’t panic buy a drug that they may not need. People need to be more considerate.
