Donald Trump used an interview with Sean Hannity of Fox News on Tuesday night to whine about the ingratitude of New York governor Andrew Cuomo, again push his preferred but unproven remedy for Covid-19, hydroxychloroquine, and attack the “lame stream media” for its coverage of his administration’s response to the crisis.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) has hit back at the president after he threatened to stop US funding to the body as he seeks a scapegoat for the disaster wrought by the coronavirus pandemic, saying the WHO had “missed the call” – despite himself ignoring a memo from trade adviser Peter Navarro in February warning of the coming storm.
