Trump's medical advice triggers run on malaria drugs in Mexico
US President Donald Trump’s unproven endorsement of hydroxychloroquine as a treatment for COVID-19 has triggered a run on the drug worldwide — including in Mexico. Also, the spread of the coronavirus and the border closures have slowed down humanitarian aid to war-torn Syria. Host Marco Werman speaks with David Miliband, the chief executive officer of the International Rescue Committee, about what help is available for Syrians. Also, a round of applause for doctors, nurses and medical professionals. That's what people in London, Madrid, Wuhan and other major cities around the globe have done to show their support for those on the frontline of the coronavirus pandemic.
