Detroit Democratic State Representative Karen Whitsett tested positive for COVID-19 on Monday. She started taking hydroxychloroquine and started feeling relief in less than two hours.
Remember, the media mocked President Trump for calling the anti-malaria drug a possible "game-changer" in the battle against coronavirus. He was peddling "false hope." They even blamed President Trump for a couple who drank fish tank cleaner.
There were even some Democrat Governors who weren't even letting doctors use the drug to treat patients.
Finally, it was approved by the FDS and doctors are prescribing it and the patients are getting better quickly.
More on the story from the Detroit Free Press:
A Democratic state representative from Detroit is crediting hydroxychloroquine — and Republican President Donald Trump who touted the drug — for saving her in her battle with the coronavirus.
State Rep. Karen Whitsett, who learned Monday she has tested positive for COVID-19, said she started taking hydroxychloroquine on March 31, prescribed by her doctor, after both she and her husband sought treatment for a range of symptoms on March 18.
“It was less than two hours” before she started to feel relief, said Whitsett, who had experienced shortness of breath, swollen lymph nodes, and what felt like a sinus infection. She is still experiencing headaches, she said.
Whitsett said she was familiar with “the wonders” of hydroxychloroquine from an earlier bout with Lyme disease, but does not believe she would have thought to ask for it, or her doctor would have prescribed it, had Trump not been touting it as a possible treatment for COVID-19.
“It has a lot to do with the president … bringing it up,” Whitsett said. “He is the only person who has the power to make it a priority.”
Asked whether she thinks Trump may have saved her life, Whitsett said: “Yes, I do,” and “I do thank him for that.”
President Trump took time out to congratulation Rep. Karen Whitsett on her recovery:
Congratulations to State Representative Karen Whitsett of Michigan. So glad you are getting better! https://t.co/v6z46rUDtg

One more time: Trump was right. Thank God President Trump talked about this drug and now lives are being saved because of it.
