CLIVE TAKES UP FIGHT

The Gold Coast Bulletin - - FRONT PAGE -

BIL­LION­AIRE Clive Palmer has mo­bilised a $50 mil­lion se­cret over­seas mis­sion to source 26 mil­lion tablets to help fight coro­n­avirus as a global race for the drug hits fever pitch.

Health Min­is­ter Greg Hunt con­firmed that Mr Palmer’s “gen­er­ous” of­fer to buy malaria drug hy­drox­y­chloro­quine had been ac­cepted and would com­ple­ment the Mor­ri­son Govern­ment’s mul­ti­fac­eted plan to try to beat the pan­demic.

Asked why he was do­ing it, Mr Palmer said: “Aus­tralia has been good to me. I’m sure you would help your neigh­bours if they were in trou­ble.”
