BEIJING, 25 (Xinhua) — U.S. President Donald Trump says he has completed a course of treatment for oxycodone to prevent infection with the new coronavirus. It is a controversial drug that Trump has touted as a treatment for new coronary pneumonia, despite warnings from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and medical professionals that its effectiveness is questionable and has potentially dangerous side effects.
“It’s done, it’s just done,” Trump said in an interview with Sinclair Broadcasting. By the way, I’m still here. As far as I know, I’m here. “
Mr. Trump’s comments come as a new study shows that new crown patients who take hydroxychloroquine have a higher risk of death than those who do not. The study, published Friday in the medical journal The Lancet, also found that patients with new crowns were more likely to have severe arrhythmia if treated with hydroxychloroquine or chloroquine.
