Fauci: Hydroxychloroquine not effective as Covid-19 treatment

Dr. Anthony Fauci, NIAID Director and WH Coronavirus advisor, reports that there is no valid scientific data that shows hydroxychloroquine is an effective treatment for Covid-19.

"You look at the scientific data and the evidence. And the scientific data ... on trials that are valid, that were randomized and controlled in the proper way, all of those trials show consistently that hydroxychloroquine is not effective in the treatment of coronavirus disease or Covid-19," Fauci told MSNBC just a day after President Trump promoted hydroxychloroquine as a working treatment. Trump had claimed that many doctors thought the drug was "extremely good" and that it was safe to take. As of now, there is no FDA-approved drug for the treatment of Covid-19.
