We will be following closely The Nevada Pharmacy Board to see if they reverse Gov. Sisolak’s State of Emergency order from earlier this week. On March 25th Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak signed yet another politicizing State of Emergency Declaration. Sisolak went on TV and announced he was banning the anti-malaria drugs chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine for use against the Corona Virus outside hospitals and limiting how many a pills a patient can receive for approved uses unrelated to the COVID19. This set off a firestorm in Nevada and across the nation. He also ordered that only doctors in a hospital setting can prescribe the drugs. The drugs have been around for 70 years and have a very safe track record. The 5 day course costs on average $10. Millions of doses are expected to be available within the next couple of weeks. Even though the Governor of Michigan just reversed her ban, Gov Sisolak still has not reversed his ban yet. Sisolak bans doctors outside hospitals from prescribing the reported life saving drugs. Only hospitals can prescribe the drugs in Nevada, but for many that is way too late to survive. But many online, out of state and even Canadian online pharmacies are ready and willing to fill prescriptions for anti-malaria drugs chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine. Most online pharmacies appear to have significant supply on hand as well. According to staff we spoke with at the Nevada Pharmacy Board they have no authority to discipline and or regulate out of state pharmacies if they violate Sisolak’s drug ban, especially after the Trump administration lifted the ban on the use of the drug Sunday.
