Are you Comfortable with Trump taking Malaria Drug?   The Serious You: Politics

Obama quit smoking before he left office.  Morbidly obese means weighing more than 100 lbs over your proper weight.  A six foot tall man should weigh around 180 lbs so if Mr Trump is more than 280 lbs then he is technically morbidly obese. The morbidity refers to his chances of dying from a stroke or heart attack because of the excess weight.  Taking the anti malaria drug was dangerous because it affects the heart rhythm.  Biology doesn't care what office you hold.

How true.

Speaking of that, here's something I stumbled on that really shines a spotlight on the irresponsibility of those who run around un-masked in public when it is suspected that 80% of Covid-19 cases are asymptomatic or with mild symptoms but still highly contagious.

People who refuse to wear face masks during the coronavirus pandemic should be stigmatised the same as drink drivers, the head of the prestigious Royal Society science journal said Tuesday. The comments from Venki Ramakrishnan come as two new peer-reviewed studies showed how wearing face coverings may help significantly reduce the spread of viruses such as COVID-19. "It used to be quite normal to have quite a few drinks and drive home, and it also used to be normal to drive without seatbelts," Ramakrishnan wrote in a comment article.

... Ramakrishnan stressed how masks are only genuinely effective if worn by most people. ... Estimates vary, but it is thought around 40-60 percent of transmissions occur when carriers are pre- or asymptomatic -- that is, they may not know they are ill but are still able to infect others. ... In pre-symptomatic individuals, studies have shown that viral droplets are emitted not only by sneezing and coughing, but also by talking and breathing, meaning mass face coverings would significantly reduce the risk of new infections. ...

That article doesn’t provide proof they died from the drug. Instead, they died from the disease.  The girl who ad an immune defied health died after doctors refused to give her any more not because she got an initial dose.

The point I should have stressed is get your medical treatment and advice from Doctors, not politicians; learn to drive from a driving instructor not a politician, get your hair color  from a beautician not a politician, get your recipes from a cook, not a politician, have a dog trainer train your dog, not a politician, have a building contractor build your house, not a politician.

I agree with that which is why I wasn’t too worried when he said it.

Sadly, some people take his word as gospel and do believe everything, I mean everything, he says.

It’s not sad, it is a choice. They are adults, they need to have some responsibility for their actions.
