NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo bans hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine for Covid-19 patients


I've heard from too many other news sources that what was reported on March 26 has turned into an outright ban.  Why? 
Andrew Cuomo needs to answer for this because the mainstream media is not covering it.
Newsday reports two drugs touted as possible treatments for COVID-19 can no longer be prescribed for people who want them just in case they get sick.
An executive order issued by Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo this week limits prescriptions of hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine to COVID-19 patients in state-approved clinical trials, and for FDA-approved uses as an antimalarial or autoimmune treatment, and then only for a 14-day supply with no refills. 

The order came as the state is starting wide-scale trials of hydroxychloroquine in hospitals treating COVID-19 patients. Surging demand for the medications had already depleted pharmacies of the drugs, and nearly 10 other states have also limited prescriptions amid reports that some physicians were self-prescribing drugs for themselves, families and friends as well as still-healthy patients.

  1. Why the hell would Cuomo do this? Hoard the drugs for the elites and his cronies?
