President Donald Trump said he is done taking hydroxychloroquine, an enemy of jungle fever sedate, as treatment for coronavirus in the wake of finishing a fourteen day treatment.
Trump said in a meeting on the Sinclair Broadcast Group program “Full Measure with Sharyl Attkisson” that he was “done, simply wrapped up.”
The meeting was taped Friday and broadcast Sunday.
“And by the way, I’m still here,” Trump said in the meeting.
Trump had been taking the medication regardless of admonitions from his own legislature taking note of it ought to be utilized for COVID-19 just in a clinic or research setting.
A week ago, Trump said he had been taking the medication for about a week-and-a-half alongside a zinc supplement every day, as per the Associated Press.
The president has pushed hydroxychloroquine as a potential remedy for COVID-19.
A month back, the Food and Drug Administration gave an alert about the utilization of the medication for coronavirus treatment on the off chance that it was utilized outside an emergency clinic or clinical research setting. Some symptoms were lethal.
“Well, I’ve heard tremendous reports about it,” Trump said about the use of the drug for COVID-19 treatment. “Frankly, I’ve heard tremendous reports. Many people think it saved their lives. Doctors come out with reports. You had a study in France, you had a study in Italy that were incredible studies. Look, if somebody else were promoting it other than me, call it a promotion because I want people to get better.”
Trump noted two individuals in the White House tried positive for COVID-19.
“I believe in it enough that I took a program because I had two people in the White House that tested positive,” he said. “I figured maybe it’s a good thing to take a program. You know, we take a little bit of a period of time, I think it was two weeks. But hydroxy has had tremendous, if you look at it, tremendous, rave reviews.”
