Rudy Giuliani tweets Covid-19 misinformation, gets temporarily suspended

Over the weekend, Rudy Giuliani's Twitter account got temporarily suspended after tweeting misinformation regarding Covid-19. The tweet, a quote by conspiracy theorist and conservative activist Charlie Kirk, stated "Hydroxychloroquine has been shown to have a 100% effective rate treating COVID-19 yet Democrat Gretchen Whitmer is threatening doctors who prescribe it. If Trump is for something - Democrats are against it. They're okay with people dying if it means opposing Trump." The drug hydroxychloroquine has been used to prevent and treat malaria but hasn't been proven to be a safe or effective cure for the coronavirus.
