Donald Trump hails virus treatment


US President Donald Trump on Wednesday credited an experimental drug treatment with helping his recovery from Covid-19 and suggested his diagnosis could be a “blessing in disguise" for the nation's battle against the pandemic — even though there is no way for the president or his doctors to know that the drug had any effect. In a new White House video posted Wednesday evening, Trump said his illness had shed light on an experimental antibody cocktail that he credited for his improved condition.
