Financial Times: Marseille’s maverick chloroquine doctor becomes pandemic rock star

From the Financial Times:

Last week it showcased a different kind of celebrity: Didier Raoult, a long-haired, iconoclastic virologist from Marseille, who has championed an old malaria drug as a potential cure for the coronavirus ravaging the globe.  The 68-year-old prizewinning specialist in his field has gained fame outside it since posting a YouTube video in late February describing how Chinese doctors had success treating patients with chloroquine and predicting the coronavirus “endgame”.
