You know why the MSM will bury this news? Because they bashed President Donald Trump for talking about it:

An international poll of more than 6,000 doctors released Thursday found that the antimalarial drug hydroxychloroquine was the most highly rated treatment for the novel coronavirus.

The survey conducted by Sermo, a global health care polling company, of 6,227 physicians in 30 countries found that 37% of those treating COVID-19 patients rated hydroxychloroquine as the “most effective therapy” from a list of 15 options.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration gave chloroquine and its next-generation derivative, hydroxychloroquine, emergency-use authorization Monday for treating the novel coronavirus, although the drug was already being used off-label by some doctors and hospitals for COVID-19 patients.

Coronavirus Curve Tells Dr. Birx ‘Not Every American Following’ Guidelines

Dr. Deborah Birx told the media during the Coronavirus Task Force briefing that the curve shows her that Americans are not following guidelines:

“I know you’ve seen the slope on the US versus the slope in Italy, and we have to change that slope,” Birx said. “What it means in the US is not everyone is doing it.”

“So we’re only as strong as every community, every county, every state, every American following the guidelines to a T,” Birx said. “And I can tell by the curve … that not every American is following it.”

Birx said other countries have been able to slow the rate of Covid-19 spread after implementing social distancing guidelines.

“We can bend ours, but it means everybody needs to take that same responsibility,” she said, adding that the guidelines mean people should be having “no dinner parties, no cocktail parties.”

Trump Tests Negative for Coronavirus Again

President Donald Trump’s first coronavirus test on March 14th came back negative. He took another one on Wednesday with the new test that gets results back in 15 minutes. Negative again:

White House Dr. Sean Conley didn’t provide any context for the second test, only saying that the president had tested negative and wasn’t displaying any symptoms. The doctor added that the president had been tested by a new rapid point-of-care test that delivered results in 15 minutes.

“It took me literally a minute to take it,” Trump said at his daily press briefing Thursday. “I took it really out of curiosity.”

On Friday, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the new coronavirus test, which provides results in as little as 15 minutes. The new diagnostic was designed to facilitate rapid results as the U.S. keeps looking to find ways to improve testing capabilities for COVID-19.

Dr. Fauci Receives Security

Dr. Anthony Fauci received personal security due to threats on his life:

A law enforcement official told CNN that the Department of Health and Human Services Inspector General, the agency’s law enforcement arm, asked the US Marshals Service for assistance following threats to Fauci. The Marshals then deputized HHS officers to act as personal security for the doctor.

The Washington Post first reported the threats to Fauci and the increased security.

A source also confirmed to CNN last week the presence of several members of the Washington, DC, Metropolitan Police Department stationed at all times around Fauci’s home in the district. The source added the stepped up visible police presence was a response to growing threats to Fauci’s safety, though the source of the threats was not identified.
