Trump threatens India: no medicine, waiting for retaliation
Speaking at the White House COVID 19 briefing on the outbreak on April 6, trump said he did not like India's control measures on the anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine and would consider retaliation.
Shortly after Mr Trump's comments, India agreed to lift export controls on hydroxychloroquine, the BBC reported today.
However, India did not directly respond to Mr Trump's threat.
In a statement, India said it would provide an "appropriate amount" of hydroxychloroquine to neighbouring countries and those severely affected by COVID 19 "for humanitarian reasons".
Trump has repeatedly recommended and praised hydroxychloroquine, saying it is effective in treating COVID 19.
But several senior U.S. public health officials, including Dr. Fauci, who is known as "America's bell and south hill," stressed that they had not yet confirmed whether the drug would work against novel coronavirus.
As of yesterday, a total of 368,449 covid-19 cases had been confirmed in the us, including 10,993 deaths, according to Johns Hopkins university.
