Health experts have warned against the potentially severe side effects of taking the drug[ hydroxychloroquine], which Mr Trump has nevertheless continued to promote to treat the novel coronavirus, claiming to have taken it himself as a precautionary step.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) revoked emergency authorisation of its use earlier this month.”
