Trump Administration Wanted To Distribute Millions Of Doses Of Hydroxychloroquine
Emails obtained by Vanity Fair show Trump administration officials had a plan to distribute an unproven drug. According to Business Insider, they wanted to hand out millions of doses of hydroxychloroquine to COVID-19 outpatients. While the drug is an effective anti-malarial drug, there isn’t any evidence it’ll work against the coronavirus. President Donald Trump touted the drug as a coronavirus treatment and said they had a lot in supply. The biggest patient study of the drug in the U.S. showed there was no benefit in using the drug.
