President Trump, joined by a notably smaller group of members of the White House Coronavirus Task Force than previous briefings, held a news conference on the response to the pandemic. The president said that hydroxychloroquine, a common drug used to treat malaria, could be used as a possible treatment for patients infected with coronavirus. While its efficacy in treating the illness is not fully known, the president said that at least they know the drug is safe to use. “It’s shown very, very encouraging early results, and we’re going to be able to make that drug available almost immediately,” he said. Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams called on millennials and members of Generation Z to donate blood. “You’ll feel good about it and you’ll be helping your country and your community during this crisis, and you might even save a life,” said Dr. Adams. close
