State Blocks Use Of Hydroxychloroquine For Treating COVID-19

The drug that had been touted by President Trump as a treatment for COVID-19 is being banned in Ohio. 

The Ohio Board of Pharmacy has blocked hydroxychloroquine for treatment of coronavirus patients. Board officials say several independent studies found it isn't effective and may cause long-term heart problems.
