Dem Michigan Governor Threatens Doctors For Chloroquine

I kind of wonder if she has any actual authority here, but if this stuff works then “I left you to die!!” is the worst re-election slogan in history.

Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs warns that prescribing hydroxychloroquine or chloroquine for treatment of COVID-19 ‘without further proof of efficacy’ may be investigated for administrative action; reaction from Dr. Jeff Colyer, former Kansas governor.

Excerpt from the letter sent out by the Michigan BPL:

TO:  Licensed Prescribers & Dispensers
RE:  Reminder of Appropriate Prescribing and Dispensing

Dear Licensed Prescribers and Dispensers:The Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs has received multiple allegations of Michigan physicians inappropriately prescribing hydroxychloroquine or chloroquine to themselves, family, friends, and/or coworkers without a legitimate medical purpose.

Prescribing hydroxychloroquine or chloroquine without further proof of efficacy for treating COVID-19 or with the intent to stockpile the drug may create a shortage for patients with lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, or other ailments for which chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine are proven treatments. 

Reports of this conduct will be evaluated and may be further investigated for administrative action. 

Prescribing any kind of prescription must also be associated with medical documentation showing proof of the medical necessity and medical condition for which the patient is being treated. 

Again, these are drugs that have not been proven scientifically or medically to treat COVID-19.Michigan pharmacists may see an increased volume of prescriptions for hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine and should take special care to evaluate the prescriptions’ legitimacy.

Pursuant to Michigan Administrative Code, R 338.490(2), a pharmacist shall not fill a prescription if the pharmacist believes the prescription will be used for other than legitimate medical purposes or if the prescription could cause harm to a patient

In addition to whatever stock on hand is in the US, Teva has donated 6 million pills, Bayer AG has sent us 3 million, Novartis has 50 million on hand and will churn out another 80 million by the end of May, and the FDA has added HCQ to the Interim Policy list, which will allow generic pharma companies and even pharmacies to make the stuff.

All told, there is probably enough out there right now to treat 4 million people. With lots more coming. So there is no shortage at all, and no hoarding necessary. Just keep the distribution channels running. Since the treatment plan is less than a week, we should have trials results data real soon. Provided, of course, that the media bothers to report it.

You may remember Governor Whitmer. She’s the one who gave the Dem rebuttal to President Trump’s magnificent SOTU address back in February.

“It’s pretty simple. Democrats are trying to make your health care better. Republicans in Washington are trying to take it away,” Whitmer said in prepared remarks.

Uh huh. That is pretty simple: she’s a total lying hypocrite.

Meanwhile, this EVIL DRUG that TRUMP IS POISONING EVERYONE WITH is showing success in Belgium and Bahrain. Phhhbbtt. Foreigners, what do they know about anything? It’s up to MI Governor Whitmer to block this for your own good.

Bahrain and Belgium report their hospitals are successfully treating coronavirus patients with the anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine touted by President Trump as a possible breakthrough in the pandemic.

The Kingdom of Bahrain’s Supreme Council of Health chairman said his country was among the first to use the drug and that its impact has been “profound,” according to the Bahrain News Agency.

Dr. Shaikh Mohamed, who leads the National Taskforce for Combating COVID-19, was also quoted by the news agency as saying hydroxychloroquine was administered according to the same regimens as those used in China and South Korea.

The first COVID-19 case in Bahrain was reported on Feb. 21, and hydroxychloroquine was first administered to patients showing virus symptoms on Feb. 26. As of March 25, the virus had caused 4 deaths in Bahrain, according to the Johns Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center. 

...

Meanwhile in Europe, another U.S. ally, Brussels, is reporting similar early success with the same drug and is taking steps to ensure its availability for the sickest coronavirus patients.

“Using the limited stocks of these medicines for unnecessary or unjustified preventive treatments jeopardizes the availability of these medicines for patients who need them: chronic patients and hospital patients seriously affected by Covid-19,” Belgium’s Federal Agency for Medicines and Health Products said this week.

Belgium, like the United States, has begun a longer-term clinical trial on the efficacy of using Hydroxychloroquine to treat COVID-19 patients.

While warning against hoarding, and saying that this treatment plan is not yet proven or even fully tested, Belgium is delivering enough to treat 22,000 patients to each of their hospitals, with enough in the next delivery to treat another 17,000. There are 7,284 cases in the whole country.

Sounds like they are giving it a serious try.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
