If you’re reading articles predicting the Apocalypse, put the computer down, stop reading what you’re reading, then start trusting Dr. Anthony Fauci. That’s Dr. Drew Pinsky’s RX to the nation. Pinsky calls Dr. Fauci the nation’s “North Star” on these things. Pinsky then said that he’s got faith in Dr. Fauci and in the research doctors at the CDC and NIH.

Dr. Pinsky said that he’s intrigued by the hydroxychloroquine and the azithromycin. In fact, he said “I see a lot of good news in a lot of domains. I was on television with Dr. Oz last night. We both agreed that we both need 2 pieces of information to really change the course of this thing. I want a little more peer review data on the use of the malaria medicine, the Hydroxychloroquine showing significant benefit of treatment and, perhaps, prophylactic activity of the same medication.”

The point is that there’s tons of reasons to be optimistic. As Dr. Drew points out, there are a number of treatments that wouldn’t need to go through the entire approval process because they’ve already been through that process for a different use. In his interview with Greg Gutfeld, Dr. Drew said that he’s upset with the reporting, saying that the media seems intent on pushing the most extreme stories in their attempt to panic people.

The media’s goal is to increase readership. What actually happens, though, is that people panic. The media have done a fine job of increasing the panic
