An epidemiology professor at the Yale School of Public Health said hydroxychloroquine could save 100,000 lives from the coronavirus but added that the controversial anti-malaria drug has instead been used in a “propaganda war.”

"I think 75,000 to 100,000 lives will be saved," Dr. Harvey Risch said in an interview Tuesday evening with Fox News’s Laura Ingraham after she asked if thousands of lives could be saved if a hydroxychloroquine stockpile was released.
“It's a political drug now, not a medical drug, and that's caused the complete population's ignorance. And I think we're basically fighting a propaganda war against the medical facts, and that color is not just the population of people, how they think about it, but doctors as well,” Risch said earlier in the interview.

If you accept the import of wearing masks despite very thin scientific support (I do), then there is absolutely ZERO reason to not support the medical intervention this Yale epidemiologist recommends. There is more science behind this than masks. https://t.co/TWginmElET— Chad Ragsdale (@caragsdale) July 24, 2020

sorry I didn’t realize a bachelor’s degree in Comm & Psych qualifies you to speak intelligently on the safety of a drug. Maybe you should interview Dr. Risch, Yale Epidemiologist Professor. I think he might be a tiny bit more qualified than @brikeilarcnn https://t.co/LfJzuKMUdE— Donttrustmedia (@Donttrustmedia1) July 23, 2020
Dr. Immanuel - You need to be in touch with Dr. Harvey Risch of Yale - he is aggregating the experience of courageous docs like you using the Zelenko protocol. He has an upcoming publication summarizing these results. His previous work:https://t.co/sAXN3hXM8E— Mark F. McCarty (@markfmccarty) July 19, 2020
That's easy @RobHerring. Put Yale's Epidemiologist Harvey Risch in charge of treating Corona Virus and evaluating for herd immunity, and read and follow the letter from Dr Zelenko wrt HCQ combo.

Could be much lower if HCQ was implemented.https://t.co/rhBCbPyR8Z— WWGoneWGA (@wqa_ww) July 24, 2020
