Dr Rick Bright is a vaccine expert, who was leading the US government to develop a vaccine for the coronavirus. But eventually, to circumstances, he disagreed with President Trump. And after that, he lost his job.
He was questioning the potential of hydroxychloroquine, which is an anti-malaria drug. This was recommended by President Trump for the treatment. The doctor’s lawyer has been charged against President Trump.
In the other hand, President Trump stated that he never heard the name of Dr Bright! The hydroxychloroquine and the related drug chloroquine have cautioned by many experts that this could be ineffective, or even dangerous if it didn’t measure in adequate quantity.
The lawyer said that Dr Bright was sidelined. He resisted efforts to be creative to work on the dangerous drug. Unfortunately, it was promoted by the administration, which is not tested and could be dangerous also to use inappropriately.
Surprisingly, the US health department removed Dr Bright as director of the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (Barda) and also reassigned in another position at the National Institutes of Health.
