Dr. Elizabeth Vliet, the past director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons and Ellis Island Medal of Honor recipient joins Dr. George to discuss the impact of bureaucrats within the FDA as well as various state health departments who continue to block physicians from prescribing Hydroxycholorquine upon early Covid-19 diagnosis. Will this bureaucratic entangling of red tape interposing against the prescribing authority of front-line physicians trying to save lives during the Coronavirus Pandemic be remembered as one of the worst preventable medical tragedies our time? One must ask the question Cui Bono when it comes to preventing the use of Hydroxychloroquine at every step of the way throughout the crisis.
