Dem Rep. Whitsett: Hydroxychloroquine Wouldn’t Have Been Readily Available If Not for Trump
WHITSETT: "Well, I had been on hydroxychloroquine in the past for Lyme disease but that was many, many years ago, back in 2014. But it would not have been made readily available to me if it was not for the president making his comments. This was something that the day that I actually had hit rock bottom the governor in the state of Michigan had placed executive order in place that was very confusing for the doctors in our state. And I was not able to get it from the doctor who actually wrote the prescription for my husband Jason and I to actually go and get tested for the COVID-19 virus. So you can imagine the frustration, the scariness and it sickened me to my stomach to have to use my name as a state representative in order to be able to even get tested and go through this entire process. So, I definitely want to put that out there that this is unbelievable the things that I am enduring that other people who do not have a name are being turned away."
