Fox News medical correspondent claims hydroxychloroquine cured - his 96-year-old father of coronavirus

Posted: Apr 8th, 2020 - 6:20 am

Fox News medical correspondent Marc Siegel used a very personal example to advocate for treating coronavirus patients with hydroxychloroquine.

Appearing Tuesday on Tucker Carlson Tonight, Siegel shared a story of a patient who used the drug with a surprise ending.

Siegel pointed out that there have been multiple preliminary studies that have shown that hydroxychloroquine, an antimalarial drug, has a positive effect on coronavirus patients, despite potential harmful side effects.

“If you’re a doctor, and you take into account the side effects here, and there are some, you may decide that it’s well worth it for particular patients,” Siegel began.

“Tucker, I want to tell you about a 96-year-old man in Florida who said one night, ‘I don’t think I’m going to make it. I feel very weak. The end is coming. I’m coughing, I’m short of breath, I can’t get up from the couch,’” Siegel recounted. “The next day he was on hydroxychloroquine and antibiotics, per his cardiologist, he got up the next day, he was fine."

“This man is my father, Tucker,” Siegel said.

“Wow,” Carlson responded. “That couldn’t be a clearer and heavier example.”

President Trump has touted the efficacy of the drug, although National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director Anthony Fauci has cautioned that reports of its success are anecdotal.

“The data are really just at best suggestive. There have been cases that show there may be an effect, and there are others to show there's no effect," Fauci said on CBS's Face the Nation. “So I think in terms of science, I don't think we could definitively say it works.”

A Democratic Michigan state lawmaker also made headlines when she thanked Trump after she claimed that her COVID-19 symptoms “went from zero to 100 in [no] time” after taking the drug.
