Rep. Roger Marshall (R-KS) says his entire family is taking hydroxychloroquine in a preventive measure to ward off COVID-19.
Marshall is involved in a heated Wisconsin Republican primary for an open Senate seat. While speaking with the Wall Street Journal, Marshall said he was "relieved" to hear President Trump is taking the same preventative measures.
“I would encourage any person over the age of 65 or with an underlying medical condition to talk to their own physician about taking hydroxychloroquine and I’m relieved President Trump is taking it,” he said.
More on the story from The Hill:
The president disclosed Monday that he has been taking hydroxychloroquine, a controversial drug that he's championed as a potential treatment for the coronavirus, for about a week and a half.
Presidential physician Sean Conley wrote in a White House memo that he discussed the pros and cons of taking the drug with Trump after one of his personal valets tested positive for the coronavirus.
Conley wrote that the two determined "the potential benefit from treatment outweighed the relative risks."
Hydroxychloroquine, whose brand name is Plaquenil, is approved to treat lupus and rheumatoid arthritis. A similar drug, chloroquine, has also been used to treat and prevent malaria.
Scientists, however, have warned that the drug should not be taken outside a hospital or clinical trial because of the risk of severe heart problems.
Meanwhile, there have been some great stories that surfaced as a result of patients taking hydroxychloroquine. Dr. Fauci and others have taken a strong stance against the drug while pressing for the need for a vaccine.
It makes you wonder, doesn't it?
