Trump defends disproved COVID-19 treatment


President Donald Trump has once again touted the disproved use of a malaria drug as a treatment for the coronavirus, hours after social media companies moved to take down videos promoting its use as potentially harmful misinformation, report Darlene Superville and Amanda Seitz.

The president’s tone shifted markedly from the more measured and heavily scripted approach he’s displayed about the virus in recent days as he promoted hydroxychloroquine as a treatment for COVID-19. Scientific studies have shown the drug can do more harm than good when used to treat symptoms of the virus.
