The US has supplied Brazil with 2 million doses of hydroxychloroquine for use against the coronavirus, the two governments said, despite medical warnings about risks associated with the anti-malaria drug. The White House released a joint announcement on the drug, whose use has been touted both by US President Donald Trump and Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, just days after the WHO suspended testing it in COVID-19 patients.
