Minnesota Governor Tim Walz lifts restrictions on hydroxychloroquine.
ST. PAUL, Minn. — Citizens’ Council for Health Freedom (CCHF) releases the following statement by Twila Brase, president and co-founder:
“We are pleased that Governor Walz lifted his March 27 Executive Order 20-23 restrictions on chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine. As the governor’s Executive Order 20-84 issued on August 12 states: 'The authorization for the Minnesota Board of Pharmacy to implement dispensing limitations related to these medicines is no longer necessary and can be rescinded. . . Paragraph 5 of Executive Order 20-23, which pertains to chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine, is rescinded."
“This is good news for COVID-19 patients. Many physicians across the nation, and various researchers around the world, have found early use of hydroxychloroquine shortens illness, reduces symptoms, and keeps patients out of the hospital and off the ventilator. For many patients, hydroxychloroquine has been a life-saving medication."
“Minnesota’s physicians and other prescribers are now free to prescribe hydroxychloroquine without fear of their patients being turned away at the pharmacy. We appreciate the Governor’s decision to make hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine available to COVID-19 patients if their doctors choose to prescribe it.”
