On Tuesday, Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak, and friend of former VP Joe Biden, banned the use of chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine (anti-malaria drugs) to treat coronavirus patients.
Can any governor do this, ban the use of any medicine, especially not being a doctor, wouldn’t it be illegal to treat or not treat patients without even seeing them?
Last week, Sisolak had already ordered the shutting down non-essential businesses, including gun shops, on March 17, citing how dangerous things were, as you will see in the video below.

By the way, NBA player Kevin Durant did test positive for COVID-19, but he’s also not gravely ill either.
Democratic Gov. Steve Sisolak’s executive order came after President Trump touted the medication as holding promise for combating the illness.
Sisolak said there was no consensus among experts or Nevada doctors that the drugs can treat people with COVID-19.
His order also limits a prescription of the medicines — which are also used to treat illnesses like lupus and arthritis — to a 30-day supply to ensure it’s available for “legitimate medical purposes” and so people don’t stockpile the drug.
Trump helped create a recent flurry of demand for the drugs when he announced last week that chloroquine “could be a game-changer” and that the FDA had approved it as treatment for coronavirus sufferers, which it has not. Trump also said hydroxychloroquine could be used in prevention. [NY Post]
As data continues to show patients getting better from using hydroxychloroquine and people start dying in his State because they can not understand, he will be responsible for patients dying. There will lawyers biting at the bit to sue for wrongful death. Not sure he would get immunity, at least not in civil court.
The licensed Physicians in the State have the power to prescribe off label any med that is approved for other things. Hydroxychloroquine has been around for a long time with a better safety record than most drugs. What is this joker going to do? Take away the prescribing Doc’s license. Good luck with that.
And to make matters worse and more outrageous, he is not even licensed to practice medicine. Things aren’t going to end well for the Governor and his Health director.
