According to NBC and other media reports, U.S. President trump said on the 18th that he had regularly taken hydroxychloroquine for a week and a half to prevent infection with the new coronavirus. Trump said he was not sure whether the drug would work, but he believed that even if the drug did not work, it would not make people “sick or dead.”.
Trump has repeatedly recommended hydroxychloroquine at the White House press conference, which has caused a lot of controversy. Earlier, the Washington Post reported that a study published by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs on April 21 found that patients with new coronavirus infection who took hydroxychloroquine were more likely to die than those who did not. Another FDA warning said doctors should not allow patients with new coronavirus infection to use the drug outside the hospital because it can cause serious heart rhythm problems. According to CNN, trump suffered from a more common heart disease, according to previous medical information.
