Trump Derangement Syndrome knows no bounds. One man has died and his wife put in ICU after ingesting fish tank products that include the ingredient Chloroquine Phosphate thinking it would save them from coronavirus.
Trump said that chloroquine has shown “very, very encouraging early results,” in treating COVID-19. He went on to say that chloroquine taken in combination with the antibiotic azithromycin could be “one of the biggest game-changers in the history of medicine.”
Chloroquine has been used since the 1930s to treat malaria. Hydroxychloroquine sulphate, often sold as Plaquenil, was developed from chloroquine because it has lower side effects. Plaquenil is also an antirheumatic medicine and is used to treat symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis and discoid or systemic lupus erythematosus.
Never mind that the instructions clearly state “fish only” and “aquarium use only“. Frankly, if anyone consumes something that clearly states not to do so has only themselves to blame.
Dettol clearly displays its products kill human coronavirus yet we haven’t seen a rush of deaths related to improper use of the product. If PM Scott Morrison said that Dettol has ingredients that can help kill coronavirus, would you drink it before checking the label?
You have to wonder at what point Trump won’t be responsible for something in the eyes of the mainstream media.
We are aware that identity politics is poisonous. We never imagined that people would identify as fish.
