It’s not just CNN: Media outlets keep leaving out that the Arizona man died after eating fish tank cleaner

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T


It’s not just CNN . Many other media outlets aren’t reporting that the Arizona man didn’t die after ingesting the anti-malaria drug chloroquine. He died after self-medicating himself with a product used to clean fish tanks:

It looks like Axios deleted its tweet that left out the aquarium part, but is it too much to ask in a crisis that they’re accurate?

There is NOWHERE where a "liberal" tells anyone not to take a drug approved by the persons doctor.

I havent seen that.  I have seen some people on tv say that the drug is not approved. We know this is true because they are currently "testing" it in NY. 

Or do BF and the rest think that if the drug proves useful in treating the virus the "liberals" in the media will cover that fact up?   

Any person sick with the virus is quite free to ask the doctors that treat them if they can get the drug Hydroxychloroquine. What does this have to do with "liberals" ?

Trump never told anyone to take fish cleaner!  That is the damn point!

Nor did Trump tell anyone to self medicate; not listen to their doctors; nor anything else that would endanger anyone!

Got it!

After Obama's completely fucked up response to the Swine Flu you would think the left would be a little more forgiving; but no- everything under the sun and stars is still Trump's fault. Funny how the media and the Democrats weren't bitching about the infection rate, hospitalization, or lost lives from Swine Flu.  No quarantines, no travel bans, no anything to stop the spread, or anything that would affect an already weak economy and endanger the Obama Admininstration.

https://www.cdc.gov/flu/pandemic-resources/2009-h1n1-pandemic.html

From April 12, 2009 to April 10, 2010, CDC estimated there were 60.8 million cases (range: 43.3-89.3 million), 274,304 hospitalizations (range: 195,086-402,719), and 12,469 deaths (range: 8868-18,306) in the United States due to the (H1N1)pdm09 virus.

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-flu-usa/swine-flu-has-killed-up-to-17000-in-u-s-report-idUSN1223579720100212

H1N1 swine flu has killed as many as 17,000 Americans, including 1,800 children, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported on Friday.

“CDC estimates that between 41 million and 84 million cases of 2009 H1N1 occurred between April 2009 and January 16, 2010,” the agency said in a statement. Usually the CDC goes with a middle number, which it puts at about 57 million people infected.

Between 8,330 and 17,160 people died during that time from H1N1, with a middle range of about 12,000, the CDC said. But between 880 and 1,800 children died, up to 13,000 adults under the age of 65 and only 1,000 to 2,000 elderly.

In a normal flu season, the CDC estimates that 36,000 Americans die of flu, but 90 percent are over the age of 65. The CDC estimates that 200,000 go into the hospital, again mostly frail elderly people with other health conditions.

The swine flu pandemic has affected much younger people.

The CDC estimate shows that between 183,000 and 378,000 people were hospitalized with H1N1 swine flu from April to January.

You would think we would have learned from that outbreak; but 10 years later and it has just turned into a partisan bitch fest. What precautions were put in place? Where is the stockpiling of needed goods and federal, state, and local plans for handling a massive outbreak? 

I know, I know, but Trruuummmmppppp!!!!!!!

Being upset that a couple of Darwin Award winners did something stupid isn't helping anything. Want to be upset about something? Look to Congress, the CDC, State and local governments for not getting anything in place to deal with this. You can throw Obama and Trump on to the tail end of that blame.

Chloroquine (Oral Route)

Take this medicine exactly as directed by your doctor . Do not take more of it, do not take it more often, and do not take it for a longer time than your doctor ordered. To do so may increase the chance of serious side effects.

Maybe this will help clear the fog:

(Newser) – An Arizona man is dead and his wife is in critical condition after self-medicating with a substance containing chloroquine, an anti-malaria drug mentioned days prior by President Trump. Hospital authorities say the couple, both in their 60s, didn't take that medication but instead ingested chloroquine phosphate, which is used to clean aquariums, the Arizona Republic reports. They both became extremely ill within 20 minutes. The woman tells NBC that she heard Trump mention chloroquine during a press briefing and remembered she had bought some to treat her koi fish. "I saw it sitting on the back shelf and thought, 'Hey, isn't that the stuff they're talking about on TV?" The woman says she and her husband decided to mix the substance with water and drink it to prevent the coronavirus.
The woman says she soon started vomiting and her husband had trouble breathing. He died soon after they were hospitalized. In a March 19 press conference, Trump described chloroquine as a "game changer" and said it had been "approved" by the FDA, though the agency said it had not been approved for treating COVID-19, the BBC reports. Dr. Daniel Brooks of Banner Health tells the Republic that the couple apparently had not been infected with the coronavirus. He says drugs like chloroquine can have severe side effects and people should not attempt to self-medicate with drugs or household products. ( Editor's note: This story has been updated to clarify the substance the couple ingested. )

That's not the point. The wife is blaming Trump for their stupid actions:

"We saw Trump on TV -- every channel -- & all of his buddies and that this was safe," she said.
"Trump kept saying it was basically pretty much a cure."

Trump never said that fish tank cleaning products were safe for humans to ingest, and he never said that we should self-diagnose or ingest products that are specifically designed for cleaning fish tanks.

Perhaps they should have watched his daily briefings, because most of them have included medical doctors (Drs. Fauci, Birx, and Adams).

I feel badly that the husband died and the wife is still sick, but it's our personal responsibility to consult with our physician(s) to find out if ingesting fish tank cleaner is safe.

So many good people out there, just doing their best to get by, not knowing what tomorrow will bring to them or those they hold dear, but doing so with a smile and a kind word. 

My love is four treatments into her chemo regimen, so we are being super diligent. Split shifts at work for me and logging in from home for her. This whole thing in exhausting, but given the alternatives, we remain forever grateful and eternally hopeful.

I looked at the article on CNN, here's the second sentence:

It does not appear they took the pharmaceutical version of the drug, but rather "an additive commonly used at aquariums to clean fish tanks," Banner Health said in a statement.

Maybe you should consider looking at the actual story rather than a Twitter synopsis. Generally, real information is not like Trump tweets in that no one else can put everything they know about anything they know in a tweet.
