From USN&WR:

… In other Nevada coronavirus news:

— [Nevada Governor Steve] Sisolak signed an emergency order earlier Tuesday barring the use of anti-malaria drugs for someone who has the coronavirus. The order restricting chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine came after President Donald Trump touted the medication as a treatment and falsely stated that the Food and Drug Administration had just approved the use of chloroquine to treat patients infected with coronavirus. Sisolak said in a statement that there’s no consensus among experts or Nevada doctors that the drugs can treat people with COVID-19.

Well, it would be a good idea to find out if these two time-honored anti-malaria drugs work against this novel coronavirus. And one way to find out is to let doctors prescribe them off-label to people less susceptible to their side effects and SEE WHAT HAPPENS.

Do not, however, ingest aquarium cleaning chemicals on your own say-so.
