A question about hydroxychloroquine resulted in a testy moment at Sunday’s White House task force press briefing. A reporter asked Anthony Fauci his thoughts on the effectiveness of the anti-malaria drug in treating coronavirus patients.
“He’s answered that question 15 times,” said President Donald Trump, who previously spent part of the press conference touting the potential of the drug. Earlier Sunday, Fauci did answer a question about hydroxychloroquine when he was on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”
“The data are really, just, at best, suggestive,” he said. “So, I think in terms of science, I don’t think we could definitively say it works.”
