When a Democratic politician from Detroit says she took hydroxychloroquine for the coronavirus and thanks President Trump for recommending this treatment, saying she believes it saved her life, did the hosts of “Morning Joe” mention it (“Michigan Democrat thanks Trump, hydroxychloroquine for helping save her life from coronavirus,” Web, April 7)? Of course not.

MSNBC show hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough recently mocked the president for saying hydroxychloroquine may be able to help in the battle against the coronavirus. The talking heads claimed the drug was dangerous and in so doing may well have scared people away from trying the treatment. I wonder if these two feel any remorse for the lives they might have helped save — but didn’t.

Doctors regularly prescribe patients one medicine, and if that medicine dioes not perform as expected, change the prescription. We have little knowledge of this coronavirus and there is no known treatment. To mock trying something that might save a person’s life is pure ignorance at best. When did the media become medical experts?
