Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson announced Friday on Facebook that he thinks he’s “out of the woods” in his fight against COVID-19.
“Thank you everyone for your support and prayers as Candy [Carson] and I battled COVID-19,” Carson wrote. Carson said he was “extremely sick” and initially had “dramatic improvement” after being treated with Oleander 4X.
“However, I have several co-morbidities and after a brief period when I only experienced minor discomfort, the symptoms accelerated and I became desperately ill,” Carson said.
“President Trump was following my condition and cleared me for the monoclonal antibody therapy that he had previously received, which I am convinced saved my life,” Carson said, according to his Facebook post.
Carson tested positive for coronavirus in early November.
“I am hopeful that we can stop playing politics with medicine and instead combine our efforts and goodwill for the good of all people,” Carson wrote in his Friday Facebook post. “While I am blessed to have the best medical care in the world (and I am convinced it saved my life), we must prioritize getting comparable treatments and care to everyone as soon as possible.”
