Double standard? Dr. Fauci dismisses another positive hydroxychloroquine study

Now, the big news of the day was Fauci and friends returning to Capitol Hill. Joining me now to break it all down, Dr. Ramin Oskoui, Cardiologist and CEO of Foxhall Cardiology, and Dr. Stephen Smith, founder of the Smith Center for Infectious Diseases and Urban Health. All right, guys, I want to start off with Dr. Fauci taking aim at a new study showing positive results for hydroxychloroquine.

FAUCI: The Henry Ford Hospital study that was published was a non- controlled retrospective cohort study that was confounded by a number of issues, including the fact that many of the people who were receiving hydroxychloroquine were also receiving corticosteroids. So that study is a flawed study. And I think anyone who examines it carefully is that it is not a randomized placebo-controlled trial. I don’t have any horse in the game one way or the other. I just look at the data. (END VIDEO CLIP)

INGRAHAM: Dr. Smith, he just looks at the data. Was the study flawed? And what about what Fauci said? DR. STEPHEN SMITH, SMITH CENTER FOR INFECTIOUS DISEASES: I mean, we know it’s not a randomized controlled study and it was randomized control, but it did control for steroid exposure and still hydroxychloroquine confers to benefit.

The bigger problem is that Dr. Fauci has taken aim at this study for not being randomized controlled study where he’s endorsed other studies that also were – similar observations that including the infamous Lancet study, which of course was fraud and that when he say – all these other studies, he doesn’t name them. They have to be uncontrolled study, there aren’t that many randomized controlled. So, it’s disturbing.
