Peter Navarro, the US trade adviser overseeing the implementation of the Defense Production Act amid the coronavirus crisis, has acknowledged reports of a heated exchange with Dr Anthony Fauci, the leading infectious diseases expert, about the wisdom of using an anti-malarial drug to fight Covid-19.

Fauci, 79, has been director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases since 1984.

Navarro, 70 and a leading China hawk behind much of Donald Trump's hardline trade policy, said he was qualified to debate the use of hydroxychloroquine with Fauci because he has a PhD – in economics.
