ideological postions and power grabs that this info is withheld.
If you want to pretend that it's "withheld", then it evidently isn't "withheld" very well. Given that it's on Quora, has been widely reported elsewhere, and is searchable on Google...
There's a bit you missed from the Quora post. An important bit. Very important even:
- "They will not recommend a drug unless it passes Phase 1, 2, and 3 trials because doing so would violate the public trust"
The CDC of course is an organisation relating to one country only. I don't see other major countries racing to recommend other treatments, without proper trials either.
There's a couple of other interesting quotes in the post:
- "The biggest mistake people make is underestimating this disease."
- " I will try to get vaccinated as soon as possible. After you are fully vaccinated (2 weeks after your second dose is the safest margin), you can generally ignore the rest of this article."
