Trump says he is taking unproven malaria drug hydroxychloroquine

The president would not say if other members of his family or administration were taking hydroxychloroquine, but that he had been also been taking zinc supplements as well.

"I take it", Trump told reporters after a meeting with restaurant executives.

"A lot of good things have come out on the hydroxy". You'd be surprised at how many people are taking it, especially the front line workers before you catch it.

"The front line workers many many are taking it". "I hope not to be taking it soon".

"I'm taking it. Hydroxychloroquine". Right now yeah. A couple of weeks ago, started taking it, ' he said. I want the people of this nation to feel good. All I can tell you is, so far I seem to be OK. If it doesn't work you're not going to get sick or die.

President Donald Trump said Monday that he is taking a malaria drug to lessen symptoms should he get the new coronavirus, even though the drug is unproven for fighting COVID-19. Two new ones published Thursday in the medical journal BMJ reached the same conclusion.

The findings do not support the use of hydroxychloroquine in patients hospitalised with Covid-19 pneumonia, said the team led by Matthieu Mahevas, from the department of internal medicine at Henri-Mondor Hospital, Assistance Publique-Hopitaux de Paris.

The FDA has warned of serious side effects of the drug now unapproved to treat COVID-19, though touted by the White House.

But several subsequent studies - including one funded by the United States government - appear to have doused hopes that HCQ can help patients hospitalised with COVID-19.

He did not mention a name but the description fits that of Vladimir Zelenko, a NY doctor who has promoted hydroxy as a coronavirus treatment and has been touted by Fox News host Sean Hannity.

Zelinsky is tasked now with investigating coronavirus-related crimes in the Maryland U.S. attorney's office, including fake cures for the disease.
