    Given the side effects/aftereffects of hydroxychloroquine, it's no surprise that it should be withdrawn from use. Our president claims to have been on a two week course prescribed by his personal doctor. This surprised me, as my understanding is that hydroxychloroquine is a treatment for COVID-19, not a preventive. Then again, there's no assurance that our president was telling the truth since truth is a rarity from him.
