When you look at news and research about the coronavirus, you may notice how much is negative and how little as positive.

What you might not infer, but what is now known to be the case, is that this difference is the result of different standards of peer review, with papers rejected if they have the same (or even more) scientific support if those same papers have positive implications. That’s not science. It’s politics.

There appears to be another double standard for studies supporting the efficacy of hydroxychloriquine and those supporting the efficacy of masks.
