Despite assurances from President Donald Trump, there is not yet a cure for the pandemic that's caused a health crisis upending daily life across the United States.

In his attempts to assure the public that he has everything under control, the President made some wild claims about potential treatments for the disease.

One of these came in a tweet on Saturday, in which the President assured that a cocktail of hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin could treat the virus, and needed to be "put in use IMMEDIATELY."

The medicines are already FDA approved for treating conditions like malaria and lupus, but National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) director Dr. Anthony Fauci cautioned that a clinical trial would need to take place.

Nevertheless, Trump continued to praise the treatment on Twitter and in his daily press briefings on the virus.

Now, an Arizona woman is in intensive care and her husband is dead.

The pair ingested chloroquine phosphate, which is an additive used to clean fish tanks, instead of the medication form of chloroquine, because they'd heard the President touting the so-called treatment "on every channel."

She continued:

"Trump kept saying it was basically pretty much a cure."

Now, the woman is warning those who are getting their medical information from Donald Trump:

"Oh my God. Don't take anything. Don't believe anything. Don't believe anything that the President says & his your doctor."

Listen to her full comments below.

People criticized the President for his eagerness to boast a cure before one was ready.

Some even blamed him for the Arizona couple ingesting chloroquine phosphate.

Others said that, while Trump is irresponsible, it was the couple who drank aquarium cleaner because they saw chloroquine in the ingredients that bore the blame for this one.

Trump has been retweeting endorsements of hydrochloroquine repeatedly on Twitter.
