US President Donald Trump is currently taking hydroxychloroquine pills to protect against the corona virus. Trump himself made the announcement on Monday. Trump’s own government has instructed COVID-19 patients in hospitals to take the pill only on doctor’s advice. But Trump is taking a pill of hydroxychloroquine regardless of anyone.
Trump told reporters he had been taking a hydroxychloroquine pill for the past week to prevent coronary heart disease. Hydroxychloroquine is the original malaria drug. Trump claims the drug is a game changer against the corona virus. Donald Trump had warned India about the supply of this drug. He also thanked India for delivering the pills.
Hydroxychloroquine also has side effects, and some experts say it is less effective against the corona virus. Trump has been advised by his doctor not to take the hydroxychloroquine pill. “This pill is good. I have heard many good things about this medicine. That’s why I started taking this pill, “said Trump.
The US FDA has warned against using hydroxychloroquine outside the hospital to treat coronavirus. This drug also has side effects, so research is underway. Hydroxychloroquine is also used for rheumatoid arthritis.
