Trump Organization lays off 1,500 employees amid coronavirus shutdown

An global poll of thousands of doctors rated the Trump-touted anti-malarial drug hydroxychloroquine as the best treatment for the novel coronavirus. I may take it, Ok?

"India makes a lot of it".

About India's ban on its export, Trump said, "They hold (the medicine) because they have 1.5 billion people".

"I hope they use it, because I'll tell you what: What do you have to lose?"

The federal government already accumulated some 29 million doses of hydroxychloroquine in its national stockpiles, and is seeking to acquire more, even though the drug's effectiveness against Covid-19 is still being tested and remains questionable. "In some cases, they're in bad shape", the president said.

With more than three lakh confirmed cases of coronavirus infection and over 8,000 fatalities, the United States has emerged as the global epicentre of the deadly coronavirus disease to which there has been no cure.

But during Saturday's White House press briefing, Trump stepped up to the microphone unprompted to reference the drug combination again just moments after Fauci addressed a reporter's question about the number of COVID-19 cases and deaths expected this coming week.

The state is the epicentre of the pandemic in the U.S. with 114,775 cases, anAincrease of 11,299 since Friday, and a total toll of 3,565 deaths, according to Worldometer.

President Trump did not shy away from saying he too will take a tablet of hydroxychloroquine after announcing that he has requested Prime Minister during his telephonic conversation earlier today to lift a hold on the U.S. order of the medicine.

Taking micro-blogging site, Twitter, PM Modi said, "Had an extensive telephone conversation with President Donald Trump".

"The two leaders agreed to deploy the full strength of the India-US partnership to resolutely and effectively combat COVID-19", the PMO said.
