SEAN HANNITY (HOST): Dr. Oz you are telling me we are beyond saying it's anecdotal.

DR. MEHMET OZ: You know, this word anecdote is an interesting one. It's sort of an insult actually within medicine because you're basically saying the best you could do is just give just your personal opinion having watched something. It turns out that a lot of these advances came because people were observant. And so I don't mind anecdotal reports, but you can't crutch on that to make big decisions. But it's unfair to say hydroxychloroquine is purely an anecdotal observation. You have a large case series and that's different from an anecdote. The case series is we tracked a lot of people, we had a protocol, we watched what happened to them, it's not one person or five or seven.
