India lifts ban on exporting hydroxychloroquine

The Indian government has decided to partially lift the ban on the export of two key drugs, hydroxychloroquine and paracetamol. The move comes two days after President Trump requested PM Modi for an urgent supply of the drug. On Monday, Trump threatened ’retaliation’ were India to hold up supplies. India banned the export of 24 drugs as the country went into lockdown to ensure domestic supplies.

Wait lmao, if you just read the article it isn't even a threat. Trump was just saying that if you put a ban on an experimental drug that could potentially save thousands you'd obviously encounter some retaliation.

A lot of these comments are completely nonsensical. It was kind of a threat without it being one. Trump is right to ask what he thinks is best for his nation but the issue is he is strong-arming "allies" and disregarding the impact it could have later on others.

Stealing masks bound for other countries. Demanding drugs from 3rd world nations cause they can't make anything themselves anymore. Americans talk big about morals and values. They're just a bunch of Pirates.

Reminder that studies were already done by India and China on this drug showing no improvement for covid-19 over those not on the drug. Any limits to its availability for treating covid-19 is of benefit for the people who actually need it.

Thank you India, I am most grateful. U.S. I hope we have learned many lessons from this experience. It is my belief that we need to bring production back home and reduce our DEPENDENCE on other countries, while fostering an opportunity for all countries to be a successful partner of world trade without an overwhelming dominance. I know, a tall order, even tiny steps are a success. Thank you again India.

Why do these countries not ban together against a bully?!! So very sad and disheartening to watch "corruption" being thrown about as if he's a king, he's not nor will he ever be in my eyes!

This drug does not address the cytokine response storm that ends up taking one's life..in fact if mis administered it contributes to it by creating hypotensive dysrythmia n hyperkalemic imbalance. Thus creating a spiral into organ failure on patients on vents .I bet that is y France stopped using it for covid... Think atypical antihistamines... To arrest the crs crisis...

Seeing as how these are potential key components in fighting the virus, yeah, it makes sense to get in India's face about this
