Trump states he's taking the controversial drug Hydroxychloroquine

On Monday, Trump stated that he has been taking Hydroxychloroquine as a "preventive measure". The drug, which has been used for preventing or treating malaria, has not shown compelling evidence to suggest it's an effective preventive medication in regards to Covid-19. Many health experts, including Dr Rick Bright who recently was fired by the Trump administration, have been warning of the drug's potential health hazards and have now again raised concerns about the president's handling of the drug.

Trump said he's taking the drug because "I think I hear very good things,” and that he gets "a lot of tremendously positive news on the hydroxy".
