Michigan’s Governor Is Practicing Medicine Without A License
This is beyond an overreach. The action by this Politician.…Whitmer….is putting the citizens of Michigan in harms way….it is disgusting and DANGEROUS !
I have reviewed a number of studies….the first of which from 2005….yes 2005…revealed chloroquine was found to have suppressed the SARS Virus….a kissing cousin ( no social distancing with that virus) to the current Corona Virus.
In addition, a series of studies and case reports from China, Italy, Poland and France have shown Hydroxychloroquine to be effective against the current Corona Virus. Specifically, a study from Marseilles, France revealed a combination of Hdroxychloroquine plus Zithromycin ( Zpack) within 6 days debilitated the Corona Virus. This was a small population studied but the experience of those in the field in a number of countries including the United States have confirmed those results. In fact, the FDA has fast tracked a study on this combination of medications. That is a very rare action taken by the FDA and speaks to the positive data they have accumulated on the treatment.
Enter ” FAKE Doc” Whitmer…… she has threatened REAL Docs and Pharmacists in Michigan with punitive actions if they use this potential life saving combination for a patient…. I kid you not. This is beyond unconscionable ! By her ignorant and Despicable totalitarian actions she has put thousands of Michigan citizens and health care providers in harm’s way. This is an egregious example of politics at it’s worst!
She ran on “Fixing the damn roads”….. she needs to stick with the “damn roads” and QUIT practicing medicine without a license! Thousands of people have been put in Harm’s way and providers who are already over worked and stressed to the max do not need a political HACK DICTATING punitive actions against them as they battle for people’s lives.

March 26, 2020
The coronavirus is unquestionably a significant threat to the health and safety of people throughout the world. The infection’s worldwide death toll is more than 23,000 and counting, 1,163 in the United States and 60 here in Michigan.
There is a silver lining however, in the numbers of people who are recovering from COVID-19 — more than 122,000 at this writing.
Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer speaks during a press conference Thursday in Lansing.
Even greater hope lies in a promising new treatment using a combination of old drugs: Plaquenil (hydroxychloroquine) and a Z-Pak (azithromycin).
These well-known drugs have very favorable safety profiles. Several small studies have shown significant reduction in viral loads and symptom improvement when combining these medications in COVID-19 patients. Though these studies are small and do not prove efficacy, the results were so promising that the authors of the most famous study concluded:
