1/ President Trump tweeted this earlier today and has been receiving quite a bit of criticism.

2/ The media has suggested that chloroquine is untested and has NOT been approved by the FDA.

3/ They have also suggested that it is dangerous and could kill you.

4/ Chloroquine HAS been approved by the FDA for malaria treatment, and it has been around for over 80 years. Preliminary results for COVID-19 patients look very promising, and it is currently being tested in other countries.

5/ As for the idea that it could kill you, the @Bloomberg article says:

“A woman in Wuhan proved how lethal chloroquine can be when it’s taken beyond the recommended dose.”

I am pretty sure that ANY drug could kill you if you take more than the recommended dose.
6/ What is going on here? Why is the media actively trying to mislead the public?

I suspect it is because the patent for hydroxychloroquine EXPIRED in 2002. This means there is not a lot of money to be made off of it.

A six day treatment of 600mg a day only costs around $15.
7/ As I explored in another thread, Bill Gates and other people in the pharmaceutical industry are looking to push a vaccine that they can charge much more for.

8/ Remember, Goldman Sachs already told everyone in 2018 that curing diseases is not profitable.

9/ Here is another article from Bloomberg suggesting that chloroquine will kill you.

Again they were hospitalized cause of OVERDOSES.

10/ Treatments are only needed for people who HAVE the virus and HAVE symptoms. Vaccines are taken as a precaution by millions of people.

Some simple math.

- 24,000 confirmed cases in the U.S. * $15 = $360,000
- 330 million U.S. population * $1,000 vaccine = $330 billion
11/ Even if only a fraction of the population takes the vaccine it is still orders of magnitude more profitable to pharmaceutical companies.
12/ Curiously, a patent was also recently published about using chloroquine to treat cancer.

Here is some context for international folks who may be wondering why the mainstream media in the United States may have incentives to protect the pharmaceutical industry.
