A man reportedly died after ingesting a substance used to clean fish tanks that contains a form of chloroquine, a drug that President Donald Trump has claimed repeatedly could be a "game changer" in the fight against the novel coronavirus.

The man's wife also is in critical condition, the health care system Banner Health said in a statement, adding, "Within thirty minutes of ingestion, the couple experienced immediate effects requiring admittance to a nearby Banner Health hospital."

He now has 100% chance of not catching corona, though.

Sigh.

Ya know, I think people need to stop watching TV, especially for their news and medical advice. Their approach is always; "hurry up and feel something," and that can lead to people making the wrong decisions. I have left my TV pretty much collecting dust for going on six years now, except for a little sports and hooking up my laptop.

Learn to read, find more variety of sources of information, learn to process that information at a more deliberate pace and evolve your conclusions accordingly.

Another needless victim of the many emotion amplification machines that currently clouds the world. Sad.

This is what happens when you have a buffoon giving "cure" advice live on national television.

I kinda think he just pulled the trigger on a gun that was handed to him; a symptom of a larger problem.

I watched American TV news a few times, you know? Just enough so I could make some conclusions. I immediately detected the whiff of "The Suck and The Daily Fail" I became so familiar with during my years in England, and then I decided that was enough for me.

He said that chloroquine phosphate is a possible treatment not cure. It's not the same as the one used aquarium cleaning.
