Skip to comments.Dr. Marc Siegel on faulty hydroxychloroquine data: 'This is a political hit job'
Posted on 06/06/2020 9:04:41 AM PDT by conservative98
A retracted study on hydroxychloroquine and news that the coronavirus may be mutating drew reactions Friday night from Fox News medical contributor Dr. Marc Siegel.
"So Lancet, with egg on its face, a renowned journal, is suddenly withdrawing this study," Siegel noted during an appearance on "Tucker Carlson Tonight"
A database by Surgisphere Corp. of Chicago was used in an observational study of nearly 100,000 patients that appeared May 22 in The Lancet, an influential medical journal. The study tied the malaria drugs hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine to a higher risk of death in hospitalized patients with the virus.
The validity of the data, however, has been called into question. The Guardian reports that Surgisphere has so far failed to adequately explain its data or methodology and says the companys handful of employees appear to include a science fiction writer and an adult-content model.
Siegel now says the only question is whether the malaria drugs work.
"Does hydroxychloroquine actually work early in the game to help decrease the symptoms of COVID-19? It's been studied in the lab as an antiviral," Siegel said. "Medical, we don't know yet. Political, we know this is a political hit job."

This Dr has done far more to try to help people than that clown on this site who says he is not credible
Dr. FAUCI is the BISSEST LITTLE FRAUD IN AMERICA!!! He is a COUP PLOTTER!!! A VERY PROUD COUP PLOTTER!! Wonder how much money he got paid??
The Fugitive - Fauci vs Pence
Fauci almost got away with it.
Shoot them. Shoot them both.
That was obvious from the start. The left is willing to let people die so as to express their hatred for Trump.
I am a scientist. I have no use for scientific frauds. These folks join Mad Dog Mattis in the eighth circle of hell as falsifiers and sowers of discord.
How many might have been successfully treated if not for “orange man bad?”
The guy on the left is a federal bureaucrat who hasn’t seen a patient in 30 years but has prioritized kissing the ass of the guy in the middle for the last two decades.
The guy in the middle has no medical training and no medical background whatsoever yet wants to force worldwide vaccines on everyone nade by companies he controls.
The guy on the right is unknown to me but I’d bet he’s another lifer bureaucrat with a 40-page CV resume of never ending BS self described platitudes and a current position title of about ten words in length.
Fauci hasnt been right about anything.
Trump should fire him when the time is right.
So a company with a $50,000 net worth decides a drug kills more people than are actually in the study and will not release any methodology nor any references to the study.
I guess Gates is a Research PhD, or a MD now??
Boy, money does bring entitlement I guess?!?!?!?
He’s a Klintoon and Osambo sycophant, and should have been gotten rid of when POTUS took office.
His money can buy any degree he wants.
[[”So Lancet, with egg on its face, a renowned journal, is suddenly withdrawing this study,”]]
If they want to salvage any semblance of credibility in the scientific community, they should immediately do a thorough study of HCQ + Azythromycin + Zinc on severely ill people (To see how many can be saved by the combo), on those sick enough for hospitalization, but not sick enough for respirator intensive care, and on those who get the flu but don’t need hospitalization
But they really stepped in it publishing known false information as a political hit piece against our President-
One has to wonder how many people were scared away from relief of Covid 19 infections by the hysterical rant issued by Neil Cavuto.
I doubt that he will man up and and issue a mea culpa.
