Chloroquina: Trump / Jhonson Contraste de pareceres

Downing Street distanced itself from Donald Trump's decision to self-medicate with the anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine to protect himself against coronavirus today, saying it was not a good idea.

The US president, 73, astounded the world last night when he revealed he began taking the drug 'a week and a half' ago because 'good things are being said about it', including by medics who have written to him.

The admission at a White House press conference led to a wave of criticism from medical experts and politicians around the world, who said the leader was being irresponsible.

Asked about the claim this morning the Prime Minister's official spokesman said: 'It is not something which our own medical experts are recommending.'

Pushed on whether Mr Trump was setting a bad example, he added: 'I can only set out what the UK’s advice is, it is not something we recommend doing.

Mr Trump has often touted hydroxychloroquine as a treatment for coronavirus, even going so far as to call it a 'cure' after a few early studies showed positive results in patients.(Más)

TUESDAY, May 19, 2020 (HealthDay News) --  
Despite numerous studies suggesting that certain drugs touted by President Donald Trump as "game changers" against coronavirus are actually useless and even harmful, Trump on Monday claimed he has been taking one of them for more than a week. 

Trump said he has been taking the drug hydroxychloroquine for about a week and a half in an effort to help prevent infection or illness with SARS-CoV-2, the new coronavirus. He said he is taking the drug with the approval of the White House physician. 

Trump said, "All I can tell you is, so far I seem to be OK," The New York Times reported.(Más)
