Thread about #HCQ & #COVID19, highlighting biases in medicine & media. @niro60487270 @JamesTodaroMD

This 65 year-old drug, which has been prescribed safely hundreds of millions of times, has been reduced to media villain over the span of a few short weeks. Here's how:👇

There has been a lot of talk in the last few days about #CMI & information provided by pharmacists & GPs when new medicines are provided.

@GregHuntMP @LeanneWells63 @CHFofAustralia @MetherellMark

@ShaneJacks @topherfreeman @PSA_National @gigmoses @elliott_rohan
One of the points raised is that written information is needed to support the person at a time when they are being inundated with new information

This is no doubt true - something I regularly call for - but it is also not a surrogate for the clinical role a pharmacist undertakes

This is just so silly. In the 19th century, there was a panic in the medical profession (and among social commentators) about women becoming ill with neurological and "nervous" conditions because they were overworking their brains/nerves, which were naturally weaker than men's.
This “fact” was used to bolster the argument in favor of stopping women's formal education after age 16 and most certainly not letting them enroll in university.
