Rio Giardinieri, a Florida man who was on the brink of death because of the COVID-19 virus, claims that the drug touted by Trump saved his life.
In a press conference, President Trump announced that researchers are taking another look at hydroxchloroquine, commonly abbrevieted as chloroquine.
It is a prescription drug that has been FDA approved to treat malaria.
While it is not approved for treating COVID-19, there is a lot of research going into whether or not it works.
Giardinieri says that the drug, thanks to Trump's statement, has saved his life.
