He’s saying it’s a preventive for this illness. He’s claiming that he’s utilizing it himself although these issues don’t have any help by any means. However presumably that won’t simply be one other random one of many president’s lies about this disaster. Presumably, that may lead numerous his supporters to attempt to take this drug or to attempt to get their palms on this drug as effectively, which after all will simply compound a brand new public well being hazard on high of the present one which we are attempting to outlive.
