Dr. Abdul El-Sayed on Trump’s Promotion of Hydroxychloroquine

The coronavirus hot spot Detroit is the site of the first major U.S. study into whether or not the anti-malarial drug hydroxychloroquine could help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

This comes after weeks of President Trump promoting the drug despite warnings from medical experts.

“There’s been a lot of hype from the president, and that is so problematic because we know that hydroxychloroquine … has some potential side effects that can be really dangerous,” responds Dr. Abdul El-Sayed, a physician and epidemiologist who is the former head of Detroit’s Health Department.
