US President Donald Trump has said he is taking hydroxychloroquine as a preventive medicine against the coronavirus despite medical warnings about the use of the malaria drug.
“I’m taking hydroxychloroquine,” Trump said. “I’ve been taking it for the last week and a half. A pill every day.”
Trump said he had asked the White House physician if it was OK to take the drug, and the doctor told him, “well, if you’d like it.”
