Trump starts mad rush for tonic water

Tonic water contains no more than 83 mg of quinine per liter—a much lower concentration than the 500 to 1,000 mg in the therapeutic dose of quinine tablets.Aug 20, 2019

The dose for coronavirus is 1 gram per day, but this may kill you more than the virus.  Side effects include death.

So you can get that dose by drinking 12 litres of tonic water a day.  Surely no side effects from that.

So, we just need someone on fox saying that guy drank a gin and tonic and was instantly cured.  Could happen one in a million.  Then it will be a 'truth', until everybody starts dying, then 'it was never said'.

ps.  the US is on an exponential, but it takes more than one week to fully report.  Slow, repub mess.
