Even after the US Food and Drug Administration, the World Health Organisation and research teams around the globe caution against using the drug with reports of “serious heart rhythm problems” and additional health issues, Trump continues to recommend the drug as an treatment.
Trumps own Health officials do not recommend the drug as treatment.
He states the only reason the anti malaria drug is not seen as a suitable treatment is because he has recommended its use.
Twitter removed one of his tweets, and blocked his sons account for promoting the use of hydroxychloroquine as a treatment, classing it as Fake News.
The FDA say “there is no absolutely no evidence the drug can fight the virus, and regulators warn it may cause heart problems.” and the WHO say “there is currently no proof that it is effective as a treatment or prevents Covid-19”
With 1,600 US deaths reported in the past 24 hours, Trump still maintains many areas are corona free. The camera company KODAK has just received nearly 800 million dollars in loans from the US government to research and produce generic virus beating drugs.
Also US biotech company Moderna have stated “its experimental coronavirus vaccine had induced a strong immune response in a study on monkeys. It said the vaccine protected against infection in the lungs and nose and prevented lung disease”
Originally announced by Trump in March as a viable treatment, he amazed media outlets by claiming he had begun to take hydroxychloroquine to protect himself against the virus.
In a press statement yesterday Trump said “I can only say that from my standpoint, and based on a lot of reading and a lot of knowledge about it, I think it could have a very positive impact in the early stages. I don’t think you lose anything by doing it, other than politically it doesn’t seem too popular. When I recommend something, they like to say don’t use it. Additionally large numbers of masks and gowns are being produced and 55 million tests had been carried out. More than anybody in the world”
