Trump boasts of 'great early result' against coronavirus in one Floriduh man

President Trump again touted the promise of the antimalarial drug hydroxychloroquine on Monday for use treating COVID-19, retweeting a story that appeared in the New York Post.

The piece in the Post detailed the case of Rio Giardinieri, a 52-year-old Florida man stricken by COVID-19 who was admitted to the intensive care unit at Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital in Hollywood, Fla. On oxygen in the intensive care unit and with doctors telling him there was nothing more they could do, Giardinieri asked to be put on hydroxychloroquine, a drug used to treat malaria and lupus that Trump has called a possible “game changer” in the fight against the coronavirus.

A preliminary study in France indicated that when patients took it in combination with the antibiotic azithromycin, they were clear of the virus in less time than a control group. Larger-scale trials, which could prove or disprove its benefits, are soon to get underway.

Shortly after receiving the medication via an IV, Giardinieri experienced dramatic heart palpitations and more breathing problems, but then he awoke hours later feeling “like nothing ever happened,” the Post reported.
