Social media blew up after President Trump announced he was taking hydroxychloroquine as a preventative measure against the coronavirus. 

The drug has a multitude of uses, but the FDA has warned of serious, negative side effects.

The president is in the age group which would be considered high risk for the virus, but his doctor noted that Trump is in very good health, and wrote a letter saying the potential benefit from treatment outweighed the relative risks. 

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi went on the attack, and so did many others.

Dr. Robert Tiballi from the Catholic Medical Association joins Currents News to offer his insight on use of this medication during the pandemic.
