President Donald Trump recently announced FDA has issued an “Emergency Use Authorization” (EUA) for the treatment of COVID-19 patients with convalescent plasma taken from persons infected and recovered. The known potential benefits of the products outweigh the potential risks of It all.
More than 70,000 patients have been treated with convalescent plasma. “Today I am pleased to make a truly historic announcement in our battle against the China virus that will save countless lives. Today’s action will dramatically increase access to this treatment,” President Trump said.
Doctors such as Francis Collins, Anthony Fauci, and H. Clifford Lane have stepped into the debate to claim there is still insufficient data on plasma treatment. With additional data on the treatment by the FDA, they have addressed issues raised by the three National Institute of Health directors and continue to move forward with trials and testing the treatment more.
One of the issues at hand, and expressed by the scientific community, is the impact that the EUA will have on the availability of plasma supply for trials and research. The supply depends entirely on the willingness of suitable volunteers.
Of course, one of the many skeptical is none other than CNN’s own Jim Acosta. He shouted a question at Dr. Steven Hahn, asking about whether or not he had been pressured by the White House to issue the EUA. Medical professionals made it a point to show that convalescent plasma is a treatment that has been around for decades and that this is nothing new.
The Washington Post reflected the Trump Administration considering this plasma treatment a “breakthrough,” which they never said at all. Their articles reflected a liberal wash over any sort of pandemic achievement for President Trump.
It’s always interesting seeing the Dems take any good news and twist it into something skeptical and unconvincing. They don’t want schools to open and they want more people to die, so that numbers skyrocket and they can let more scientists, like Dr. Fauci, do whatever It is they do. If we’ve learned anything, it is that our scientists have overestimated everything so far.
The liberals have a political timetable to follow. The country needs to reflect being a disaster so that they can point at the mess and blame Trump. It’s their favorite game. As long as the media continues their assaults to make Trump look like he’s doing the worst for the American people, the Dems will just continue digging the American people’s graves and pleading the news for answers. President Trump can’t solve the pandemic; that would ruin it entirely for Biden.
