Tucker Carlson blasts Trump critics as 'reactive children' for dismissing hydroxychloroquine

Tucker Carlson blasts Trump critics as 'reactive children' for dismissing hydroxychloroquine | 25 March 2020 | Tucker Carlson took aim Wednesday at the media and critics of President Trump for dismissing an anti-malarial drug touted as an experimental treatment for coronavirus. "No emergency orders from our leaders can save us over time. Only medicine will stop this threat. Our only hope is science," Carlson said on "Tucker Carlson Tonight"..."We should all be following developments in hydroxychloroquine use with interest and measured hope. Why wouldn't we be? Well, here's why: Donald Trump is for it," Carlson said. "Several days ago, the president expressed confidence in hydroxychloroquine as a treatment for the epidemic. That was it for the media. If Trump is for it, they're against it, even if it might save American lives." "What reactive children they are," Carlson added. "And they immediately began a sustained push to discredit the drug long before the clinical results were in."

Man shot and killed by FBI after plotting to blow up a hospital due to the slow coronavirus response from the government

As a result, Pennsylvania will join more than 10 states in delaying primaries. It comes just a few months after Wolf and lawmakers approved legislation giving every voter the ability to mail in a ballot.

New Oxford study suggests millions of people may have already built up coronavirus immunity

New Oxford study suggests millions of people may have already built up coronavirus immunity | 24 March 2020 | A model predicting the progression of the novel coronavirus pandemic produced by researchers at Imperial College London set off alarms across the world and was a major factor in several governments' decisions to lock things down. But a new model from Oxford University is challenging its accuracy, the Financial Times reports. The Oxford research suggests the pandemic is in a later stage than previously thought and estimates the virus has already infected at least millions of people worldwide. In the United Kingdom, which the study focuses on, half the population would have already been infected. If accurate, that would mean transmission began around mid-January and the vast majority of cases presented mild or no symptoms.
