President Trump touts antibody drug that led to his speedy recovery
UPDATED 5:55 PM PT – Friday, October 9, 2020
President Trump has attributed his quick recovery from COVID-19 to an experimental antibody drug by Regeneron Pharmaceuticals.
While speaking with Rush Limbaugh on Friday, the President stated his doctors told him he could have become “very ill” from the coronavirus. However, thanks to the drug, he recovered within 24 hours.
The President went on to say he was not in great shape, but emphasized the drug completely wiped out the virus.
“I feel better now than I did two weeks ago, it’s crazy,” he said. “I recovered immediately, and I might not have recovered at all from COVID.”
President Trump went on to say his administration has already begun the process of getting the drug approved in the hopes of sending hundreds of thousands of vials of it to hospitals nationwide.
