(RepublicanInformer.com)- Dr. Steven Hatfill, an expert in infectious diseases, told Steve Bannon’s War Room podcast this week that Dr. Anthony Fauci – the head of the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases – is responsible for hundreds of thousands of deaths in the United States by blocking the use of hydroxychloroquine.
It’s the medicine advocated and even used by former President Donald Trump in 2020, and which is already used to effectively treat malaria, lupus, and arthritis. Dr. Fauci and other public health “experts” disagreed with the former president on the use of the drug, and it was not allowed to be widely used during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Speaking to Bannon, Hatfill said that the drug costs only 60 cents per pill and has been proven to be effective in treating people infected with COVID-19.
“You don’t need a vaccine,” Dr. Hatfill said.
“It’s quite evident that Dr. Fauci, Dr. Woodcock, Dr. Bright are responsible for hundreds of thousands of American deaths for causing this drug to pick up a bad name,” he added.
If true, it means that the approach that Dr. Fauci and other health professionals forced on the Trump administration was wildly ineffective and irresponsible.
During the interview, Hatfill said that Fauci himself was responsible for leaks that smeared the drug, which resulted in widespread mainstream media coverage calling President Donald Trump irresponsible or even “stupid” for advocating its use to treat COVID-19.
Hatfill said that Fauci, Bright, and Woodcock specifically conspired to stop the use of Hydroxychloroquine as a treatment so there was no competition for vaccines.
“I’m not a conspiracy person but there’s no other rationale conclusion for what happened,” Hatfill said. “The fact is normal vaccine development takes a long time…and you only rush it in a dire emergency if there’s no effective drug treatment. There was interference with the use of hydroxychloroquine, intentional interference. And we’re in the mess that we’re in.”
Hatfill also said that he is concerned about the use of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine and the recent instances of blood clots in those who have taken the vaccine.
“The worry is that these things can set up an inflammation in the blood vessels,” he explained.
If true, it would mean that Dr. Anthony Fauci – widely considered the face of the American response to the COVID-19 pandemic – was actually one of the biggest hurdles to solving the crisis all along.
