Responding to Trump asking "what do you have to lose?" by taking it, Cavuto said: "A number of studies, those certainly vulnerable in the population have one thing to lose, their lives. A VA study showed that among a population of veterans in a hospital receiving this treatment, those with vulnerable conditions, respiratory conditions, heart elements, they died."
"The president says, what have you got to lose. It sounds like, what you're saying, you have a risk of losing your life," he said to a doctor he had on as a guest. "Those who took it, in a vulnerable population, including those with respiratory or other conditions, they died. I want to stress again — they died. If you are in a risky population here and you are taking this as a preventative treatment to ward off the virus or, in a worst-case scenario, you are dealing with the virus, and you are in this vulnerable population, it will kill you. I cannot stress that enough. This will kill you."
"So again, whatever benefit the president says this has, and certainly has had for those suffering from malaria, dealing with lupus, this is a leap that should not be taken casually by those watching at home or assuming, well, the President of the United States says it’s okay," he said.
