Drug Donald Trump taking to fight COVID-19 best left to tests: WHO

The World Health Organization has said that the drug hydroxychloroquine has not yet found to be effective in treatment of COVID-19.

Dr Michael Ryan, the WHO’s emergencies chief, notes the drug hydroxychloroquine which Trump said Monday that he’s taking is just one of many possible therapies being now tested internationally to see if they are effective against the COVID-19.

”Every sovereign nation, particularly those with effective regulatory authorities, is in a position to advise its own citizens regarding the use of any drug,” he said.

”I would point out however that at this stage (neither) hydroxychloroquine nor chloroquine have been as yet found to be effective in the treatment of COVID-19 or in the prophylaxis against coming down with the disease,” he added.
