New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has come under increased pressure to lift his executive order prohibiting pharmacists from dispensing the antimalarial drug hydroxychloroquine outside a hospital or inpatient setting to treat the novel coronavirus.
Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani said Sunday that he recently witnessed an elderly man with a high fever arrive at Mount Sinai Hospital, “and the first thing they did before they even talked to him was give him hydroxychloroquine.”
“Why is the governor banning it?” asked Mr. Giuliani, President Trump’s personal lawyer, on “Sunday Morning Futures.” “Everything shows that it works.”

Touted by Mr. Trump, hydroxychloroquine has touched off a heated political and medical debate over whether it should be widely prescribed to fight the pandemic, with opponents arguing that the drug is unproven in treating COVID-19.
Trump now claims he’s going to start taking hydroxychloroquine, despite the fact that A) there’s no scientific evidence hydroxychloroquine prevents or treats COVID, and B) he’s tested negative for COVID twice.— Matthew Chapman (@fawfulfan) April 5, 2020
Explain to me how any of this makes sense.
