President Donald Trump said on Monday he's been taking hydroxychloroquine for about a few weeks now after being prescribed it by the White House physician.
'I happen to be taking it. I happened to be taking it,' Trump said at an event at the White House.
The president repeatedly has touted hydroxychloroquine, used to treat malaria, lupus and other diseases and the antibiotic azithromycin, often sold under the brand name Zithromax, or as a"Z-pack,' to be used to treat the coronavirus.
Trump said he is taking both medications but has tested negative for the coronavirus.
