15% Would Go Against Doctor’s Orders and Not Take Hydroxychloroquine to Treat COVID-19

hydroxychloroquine survey results

hydroxychloroquine survey results

About a month ago, we asked our readers a question we expected to have lopsided results.

But honestly, we’re a little baffled that it wasn’t as lopsided as we predicted.

Back in August, we asked the following question:

If Your Doctor Told You to Take Hydroxychloroqine for COVID-19, Would You?

Of course, hydroxychloroquine is the one treatment that President Trump suggested months ago that might be effective against COVID-19.

But since Trump suggested it, liberals and their carnival barkers in the mainstream media began a campaign to run the drug into the ground, even painting it as potentially dangerous. They said Trump was “promoting” the drug and suggested he could be doing so because he stood to gain financially from its widespread use.

Locally, the wife of Schuylkill County’s Coroner, Dr. Denise Moylan, apparently said she’d prescribe the drug. And her husband, the coroner, Dr. David Moylan, said he’d take it without question if he were prescribed hydroxychloroquine.

But not everyone would. Some people believe they know more than their doctors, apparently. And we presume the people who said they would go against their doctor’s advice probably need to re-up their Trump Derangement Syndrome prescription.

Because our polling system allows readers to submit their own answers, we did get some deviation from the standard Yes or No answers we expected. But we can presume the freelance answers we got would or already do take hydroxychloroquine.

The results from our survey break down like this:

  • Yes: 85%
  • No: 15%

    I somehow missed the survey but I would definitely take it. It’s been safely used for years. However, I do not have a case of TDS

    There’s absolutely no benefit from hcq. You can take it all you want and it’s not going to save you. Trump also was trying to push Oleandrin as well. Again, no benefit whatsoever. Just wear a mask and socially distance. Do what you can not to get covid. It’s better to be safe than sorry.

      Amazing how you, as a doctor, have the time to comment on this site so much. You know jack shit, bro. You just repeat things you see and hear on the TV or internets.

    Dr Bourne, there’s no proof your mask works and no amount of hubris on your part is changing my knowledge of virology
