"An Arizona man died and his wife was hospitalized after officials said they treated themselves on Sunday with a deadly home remedy for the new coronavirus..."

"... a popular fish tank additive that has the same active ingredient as an anti-malaria drug. The drug, known as chloroquine phosphate or chloroquine, has been bandied about by President Trump during White House briefings on the coronavirus pandemic as a potential 'game changer' in the treatment of Covid-19.... The woman told NBC News on Monday that she had heard Mr. Trump make repeated mentions of chloroquine during recent White House briefings on the coronavirus and that she used chloroquine phosphate 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 fish tank additive is used to eliminate algae and to treat the white spot condition commonly known as ich. On eBay, prices for the additive have spiked during the coronavirus pandemic."

Where is Adam Schiff, clearly this is grounds for impeachment.

So rather than blame her for her own stupidity, they would rather blame trump.

stevew said...

Stupid can be deadly. And as often as possible Trump is responsible.

MayBee said...

They did not treat themselves with a deadly home remedy for the new coronavirus.
They took fish tank cleaner.
That's on them.

Laslo Spatula said...

On the positive side: if it had worked, they would have found the cure and have been heroes, not idiots.

So there is that.

I am Laslo.

John Borell said...

And of course the Blue Check Twitter people you'd expect blamed this on Trump.

HE NEVER ADVISED ANYONE TO EAT FISH TANK CLEANER!

Uugh.

I know there's a civility bullshit tag. But please, for all that is good and holy, can we all stop screaming at Trump for chickenshit things? It doesn't help and makes things worse.

Patient: I had it in the house because I used to have koi fish


Jesus fucking christ the media is evil.

It’s very sad this happened, but hard to believe you have to tell people to limit the use of products as directed on the label. I’ve also heard President Trump and others state soap and bleach will kill Covid 19. That does not mean you should use Drano which contains sodium hydroxide (lye) and sodium hypochlorate (bleach) to wash you hands or clean your countertops, etc

stevew said...

“You need to listen to the scientists,” he said. “People are panicking and making decisions based on symptoms without being tested.”

It is not stated or confirmed in the article that they even had symptoms.

Trump bandied about the potential benefits of the medicine. Clearly his fault. /s

I am sure this will be 24/7 Trump killed them but Biden telling folks to just shoot their shotgun into the air was OK-fine.

She "heard mentioned" by Trump but could not take the 30 seconds to do a Google? Not a Florida man story? Wow.

OR is this an elaborate cover-up of a homicide? How did they get along? Sorry, been watching WAY too much ID channel...

"We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets"

You've gotta be kidding me. So, Trump is the ONLY Person saying the drug will help fight the Chinese Flu? And Trump is responsible for every idiot, doing idiotic things?

Doesn't everyone with a brain understand you don't eat Fish tank cleaner? OR that if you need to take a drug, you need medical supervision and advise? Even if you the correct drug, how would you know the correct dosage, or the possible side effects.

Its interesting that Scott Adams was already trying to get some from his Doctor. So, I guess Trump was right about the drug offering some hope.

rcocean said...

BTW, the drug's ability to PREVENT the Chinese Virus is unknown. It has been show to help CURE The disease.

rcocean said...

If you are a fish owner, I'd stock up on cleaner. They'll be a run on it. Nobody wants their fish to live in a dirty tank, and people will imagine that the dead man had the right idea but did it the wrong way. People are stupid like that.

BTW, went to the store and we're still out of TP. People are STILL showing up at 6 AM and buying TP - whether they need it or not. Hopefully, they'll calm down by the end of the week.

What editor would allow the phrase "bandied about" in the context of what Trump has actually said about chloroquine.

Why an editor at the New York Times, of course.

When I taught a class in critical thinking, we used to call phrases like that "tip offs". They were clear signs of the biases of the writer.

bbear said...

Plaquenil (hydroxychloroquine)along with (for some patients) azithromycin isn't "something the President has bandied about." Rather, there's a perfectly good French study showing excellent results with a small cohort of COVID-19 patients. Ann, I'm emailing the study to you so you can link it, so your readership (and you!) can read it for themselves. Not a large randomized placebo-controlled double-blind trial like
Fauci wants, but very very far from "anecdotal."...

Jamie said...

MayBee, a lawsuit has GOT to be brewing over their characterization of aquarium cleaner as a "home remedy": "Your Honor, my client read it in the New York Times. Unironically presented, as you can see right here, in a straight news article. My client concluded from the article that the compound he took was as stated a home remedy but that the original user miscalculated the dosage."

The amazing thing is that it got through in the first place. What on Earth has happened to the editors over there? And the lawyers? You're absolutely right, that article stands to do actual demonstrable harm.

If it weren't for the prospect of more injury and death from their stupid obsession with Getting Trump, I'd sit back and enjoy my popcorn. But for God's sake, NYT, correct this!

Lurker21 said...

Don't say "it was the same med." Nobody needs more people taking aquarium cleaner.

An aquarium supply company's website calling it a "wonder drug" is still up and saying the product is sold out. Nobody needs that kind of marketing either.

I figured the main premise of the story was likely to be false, what with it coming from the NYeT, but try a search on

fish tank "cleaner" "ingredients" "chloroquine" -trump -coronavirus

and some cleaners really do contain chloroquine.

exhelodrvr1 said...

In general, liberals, including the leadership, have a harder time "thinking outside the box," which is what is needed with issues like what we are dealing with now. You can't rely on the bureaucracy in times like this because it is almost guaranteed to fail at resolving problems like this in a timely fashion. Trump excels at maneuvering around obstacles like that - the media and the Democrats hate to see him do that, because it is clearly demonstrating the weaknesses in their style of government.

Masscon said...

Great YouTube video of the biochemical process that may make Chloroquine effective in the treatment of viruses...to me it seems extremely plausible as a treatment and perhaps even preventative.

Although I will refrain from taking my dose from fish medicine. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U7F1cnWup9M&t=907s

exhelodrvr1 said...

WSJ excerpt:
A flash of potential good news from the front lines of the coronavirus pandemic: A treatment is showing promise. Doctors in France, South Korea and the U.S. are using an antimalarial drug known as hydroxychloroquine with success. We are physicians treating patients with Covid-19, and the therapy appears to be making a difference. It isn’t a silver bullet, but if deployed quickly and strategically the drug could potentially help bend the pandemic’s “hockey stick” curve.

Hydroxychloroquine is a common generic drug used to treat lupus, arthritis and malaria. The medication, whose brand name is Plaquenil, is relatively safe, with the main side effect being stomach irritation, though it can cause echocardiogram and vision changes. In 2005, a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention study showed that chloroquine, an analogue, could block a virus from penetrating a cell if administered before exposure. If tissue had already been infected, the drug inhibited the virus.

On March 9 a team of researchers in China published results showing hydroxychloroquine was effective against the 2019 coronavirus in a test tube. The authors suggested a five-day, 12-pill treatment for Covid-19: two 200-milligram tablets twice a day on the first day followed by one tablet twice a day for four more days.

A more recent French study used the drug in combination with azithromycin. Most Americans know azithromycin as the brand name Zithromax Z-Pak, prescribed for upper respiratory infections. The Z-Pak alone doesn’t appear to help fight Covid-19, and the findings of combination treatment are preliminary.

But researchers in France treated a small number of patients with both hydroxychloroquine and a Z-Pak, and 100% of them were cured by day six of treatment. Compare that with 57.1% of patients treated with hydroxychloroquine alone, and 12.5% of patients who received neither.

What’s more, most patients cleared the virus in three to six days rather than the 20 days observed in China. That reduces the time a patient can spread the virus to others. One lesson that should inform the U.S. approach: Use this treatment cocktail early, and don’t wait until a patient is on a ventilator in the intensive-care unit.

A couple of careful studies of hydroxychloroquine are in progress, but the results may take weeks or longer. Infectious-disease experts are already using hydroxychloroquine clinically with some success. With our colleague Dr. Joe Brewer in Kansas City, Mo., we are using hydroxychloroquine in two ways: to treat patients and as prophylaxis to protect health-care workers from infection. . . . As a matter of clinical practice, hydroxychloroquine should be given early to patients who test positive, and perhaps if Covid-19 is presumed—in the case of ill household contacts, for instance.

JeanE said...


Chloroquine was developed in 1934 and has been used successfully to treat malaria in people and also to treat various protozoal infections in aquarium fish. Chloroquine has a narrow therapeutic range, and the toxic dose is not that much greater than the therapeutic dose.
" As little as 2-3 g of the chloroquine may be fatal in an adult. The most commonly
reported lethal dose for adults is 3 to 4 g. A minimum lethal dose in man is estimated
at 30 to 50 mg/kg."
Doctors prescribing the medication know this and will prescribe a safe level of medication, but people self-medicating with a product designed for use in aquarium fish do not. Koi are big fish that swim in big tanks or ponds- the amount of chloroquine added to a small Koi pond is probably several times the toxic dose in people!
There is a reason products labelled "Not for human consumption" should not be ingested!

Trump was clear about the drug needing a prescription. Trump didn't say anything about over-the-counter, pet stores, or self-medicating. If the press continues this story to attack Trump, they will be discouraging people from a potential cure.

Chloroquine phosphate is what the idiots in Arizona ingested.

Chloroquine phosphate is listed as an irritant AND A HEALTH HAZARD
(https://pubchem.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/compound/Chloroquine-phosphate)

Think of it this way: Sodium (Na) is a highly reactive (ie: explosive) chemical. Sodium Chloride (NaCl) is... table salt. Just because two chemicals share part of a name, doesn't make them interchangeable!

Nobody but Nobody has recommended ingesting Chloroquine phosphate.

If the Goddamn media can't do better, they need to be shut down.

Quinine based stuff is no joke. Decades ago, I was on mefloquine for a while during a lengthy stay in a malaria infested hellhole. I got malaria, probably because after a few months I stopped the prophylactic mefloquine, because even used as prescribed (a pill/week) it gave me vivid nightmares and other still more unpleasant side effects.

With respect, both chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine+azithromycin are human meds and possible COVID cures/treatments.

Dunno if they added anything at PetSmart to the stuff, like lye or whatever, but afaik, and some guy who is a doctor on the internet agrees, the only problem (other than that he didn't need it) is that he took a 10x-20x overdose, which would be lethal even with a prescription.

daskol said...

Notably not on that list, although once used for similar purposes: mefloquine. I was prescribed it in the 90s, but here's an FDA warning from 2013.

All of these drugs can be intense, and some have cardiac effects that generally suggest these be taken under medical supervision at least until one's reactions are better understood.

Besides dizziness and ringing in the ears, this "mythology" around mefloquine rings true, which is why it is much more rarely used in the US these days than the other ones:

The drug has taken on a dark mythology among many travelers, who have long traded stories about the vivid dreams or strange hallucinations they experienced while taking Lariam. It has also been implicated in cases of violence among military personnel, although others have noted that serious side effects are rare.

mandrewa said...

My feeling, and I was thinking this over a week ago, was that we should distribute hydroxychloroquine treatment packs to everyone that asks for them regardless of whether they show symptoms or not. And, of course, instructions on how to use it.

Hydroxychloroquine is going to work best when taken near to the beginning of the infection, and if worse comes to worse, there isn't going to be time for doctors to do a prescription. No, to be really effective, people need to already have the treatment packs in their hands.

And the instructions would go something like this:

(A) Call your doctor before starting the treatment if you think you might be infected.

(B) If you can't get a doctor on the phone, only take this if you have a fever or a dry cough or a newfound inability to taste and smell.

(C) Please follow the instructions exactly. In particular do not take more than is suggested. More is not better and more can kill you.

And if we did that, most people would follow the instructions and overall it would be a major benefit. Now most of the people that would take it wouldn't really have the Covid-19 virus. And they would suffer some relatively mild side effects. But in those cases where people actually do have the virus, it would save a significant number of lives and slow down the spread the virus considerably.

But I also know that there would be deaths and serious illnesses caused by people not following the instructions.

Still none-the-less I think these hydroxychloroquine treatment packs should be given to everyone that asks for them and without a prescription.

Funny, I thought the drug Trump was talking about was an anti-malarial drug that my son who lives in Africa has taken for six years with no ill effects. I had no idea he was speaking of a fish tank cleaner until the New York Fishwrapper said so.

hombre said...

stevew said...“Stupid can be deadly. And as often as possible Trump is responsible.”

It is dead certain that TDS exposes people’s stupidity. I don’t think Trump’s responsible, though. The seeds of stupid were clearly there before he was elected.

mandrewa said...

As others have already commented, the New York Times has a serious error. The same error that this couple made. Hydroxychloroquine, or hydroxychloroquine sulfate, is not the same thing as hydroxychloroquine phosphate.

Now most people are not chemists, and they don't realize that the phosphate versus sulfate distinction might make a big difference. I mean look at these journalists! They had hours and hours to check up on things and talk to real experts and yet they still make the same dumb mistake!

It's unfortunate what happened to this couple. They really weren't that stupid. I mean most people would be this creative. But they got the details wrong. And I will assume that they didn't really mean to give themselves ten times the dosage, assuming they had the right hydroxychloroquine. Because measurements are hard to get right also, if you don't have the experience.

Oh, and another question. What else was in that fish tank treatment aside from hydroxychloroquine phosphate?

jim said...

So, TDS is thinking Trump has responsibility for hawking snake oil to really stupid people. We all know he takes no responsibility.

He should have NON COMPOS MENTIS tattooed to his forehead, as public service.

Well, I know nothing of chemistry, fish tanks or phosphates. My first thought was, why would an expensive Anti-malaria drug be used to clean fish tanks? And if its that cheap and inexpensive, and therefore easy to make, why would they there be any shortage? But I guess these two didn't think of that.
