CLIVE TAKES UP FIGHT
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.”
