WASHINGTON (Reuters) – US President Donald Trump defended his prescription malaria drug use on Tuesday to ward off the novel coronavirus despite medical warnings. It is up to the individual to make his own decisions.
Without providing any evidence, Trump told reporters during a visit to the U.S. Capitol that hydroxychloroquine "provides you with an additional level of security," adding, "People have to choose for themselves."
The US Food and Drug Administration has warned of possible serious side effects when using the drug in COVID-19 patients.
