No programming at all. I acknowledged that any drug could benefit certain

people for certain things. But recommending a drug as an off-label treatment with no relevant studies is dangerous. I'm not saying it shouldn't be studied either (and from my recollection it has/is). I'm saying touting it as a "miracle drug" that can both treat and prevent the virus before those studies and findings are complete is dangerous and reckless. It's not a difficult concept. Again it's pretty basic medical science.

And that's why I really don't understand your thinking. When it comes to using a drug as treatment you're fine with anecdotal evidence. When it comes to wearing a mask you want to be shown multiple scientific studies that directly prove their effectiveness. How do you reconcile that logic especially when considering that the potential downsides to wearing a mask pale in comparison to taking a new (for the patient) drug? Then you turn around and express fear/skepticism regarding a potential vaccine. But you don't have the same skepticism towards an unproven, off-label drug? You're all over the place with your logic and rational and I think I know why.

It's because you have no real interest in facts or data. You want to believe what you want to believe and so you will readily accept anything that supports your already cemented beliefs and flat out reject anything that doesn't no matter what.
