Former Trump adviser Peter Navarro slammed Dr. Anthony Fauci and the media after a new study showed the effectiveness of hydroxychloroquine against the coronavirus, accusing the immunologist and journalists of costing people's lives by opposing the drug.

“I had 60 million tablets of HCQ that Tony Fauci and @cc wouldn't allow the American public to use because of their Hydroxy Hysteria,” Navarro tweeted Thursday. “Blood on @JohnBerman @cnn and Saint Fauci's hands. More than 50,000 Americans would be alive today.”

Attached to the tweet was an article from the Daily Mail that outlined a new study showing that the drug, when paired with zinc, increased the survival rate of coronavirus patients by almost three times.

Last summer, Navarro attempted to distribute 60 million tablets of hydroxychloroquine that were stored in the Strategic National Stockpile, but he couldn’t do so without an emergency authorization from the Food and Drug Administration.

The Trump administration was ultimately unable to acquire that authorization and received harsh pushback from CNN anchors, including John Berman, and medical experts such as Fauci.

Berman and Navarro clashed during a television interview in July of last year and had an argument about the effectiveness of the drug in which Berman questioned its effectiveness and Navarro said, “There are two sides to this.”

Around the same time of that interview, Fauci, a member of Trump’s White House coronavirus response team, definitively stated that all “valid” scientific data showed that hydroxychloroquine was not effective at treating the coronavirus.

Several studies, including a study in early July 2020 from the Henry Ford Health System, showed positive signs regarding the effectiveness of the drug in treating the coronavirus.

Some medical experts continue to downplay the effectiveness of hydroxychloroquine and cite its potential negative side effects. Earlier this year, the World Health Organization warned against using the drug.
