Gov. Whitmer reverses course on coronavirus drugs, is now asking feds for hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine

Gov. Gretchen Whitmer drew fire from some on the right after the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) sent a letter last week threatening "administrative action" against doctors who prescribed two experimental drugs that could potentially help coronavirus patients.

The Whitmer administration has since removed the language threatening doctors from the letter and is now asking the federal government to send shipments of the drugs, Bridge magazine reports. The Food and Drug Administration issued an emergency authorization for the antimalarial drugs hydroxychloroquine sulfate and chloroquine phosphate on Saturday.

Conservatives including Charlie Kirk and Rudy Guiliani accused Whitmer of risking lives to oppose President Donald Trump. In recent weeks, Whitmer and Trump have been sparring on national television over federal aid for Michigan, while Trump has touted the drugs' potential in treating COVID-19.

But apparently, Michigan's drug "ban" was all just a matter of miscommunication.

Days after LARA issued its first letter, The Detroit News published an op-ed that criticized the Whitmer administration’s prohibition of the drugs.

"Not only is our state’s top leader threatening the selfless health care workers who are on the frontline trying to save lives, but she’s denying possible life-saving medications to actual COVID-19 victims,” the op-ed said.

Some readers criticized the paper for irresponsibly advocating for untested drugs.

But Detroit News editor and publisher Gary Miles defended the column on Monday, pointing out that it revealed a miscommunication between the State Senate and the Governor.

Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey, a Clarklake Republican, told The Detroit News that he asked the governor to issue the original letter to prevent people from hoarding the drugs and thus depriving non-coronavirus patients of their medicine.

"We needed something to prevent cloroquine from becoming the next toilet paper," he told Miles. "I quickly requested of her staff that they put something out, and somehow in the translation it was prohibiting use of these drugs — and that wasn't the intent."

Shirkey told Miles he "was grateful for your article ... because it was the first thing that alerted me that it was screwed up."

On Monday, Whitmer said in a press conference that the state wants to be "nimble" and is always updating its policies.

"We want to ensure that doctors have the ability to prescribe these medicines," she said. "We also want to make sure that the people who have prescriptions that predated COVID-19 have access to the medication they need. And so all of the work that we’ve done is trying to strike that balance."

Dem handbook lists "mis-spoke" as the primary excuse for lying. Miscommunication coupled with being nimble when caught in a lie is acceptable though.
Next step is to blame President Trump for not having the delivery of drugs yesterday. That should tie up the logic nicely.

Can someone splain to me how a Prescription Drug, a drug that can only be dispensed by a licences physician, can be horded like toilet paper?

Also, If MI needs the Federal Government to send shipments of this drug, why not just use the existing supply that she go gallantly protected from the hoarders.

90 day supplies prescribed to family members and close friends by doctors. Its not so much hoarding I guess as docs playing favorites and taking care of their own first. Like handing out iodine pills during a nuclear disaster.

That would be a good V.P. choice for sleepy Joe. Then the Dem Ticket would be twice as bad. Trump would have a field day with that when the debates start.

She’s in way over her head. She’s made promises she absolutely will not be able to keep unless she drives us deep into the tax hole. I despise her more than i did granholm.

Trump would be hard to debate, no matter who they threw at him.

Michigan is getting slammed. I talked to a cousin in MIchigan a few days ago and she said that people up there are about ready to march on the governor's house bearing torches and pitchforks.

At least Granholm was hot! Witless will do the same as Granholm, wait for her to start selling Michigan's natural resources.

I'm originally from the UP - lots of friends and family there. None voted for her but the general sentiment across the board up there is the same. They're ready to march on Lansing.
