    Trump needs to spearhead his treatment plan to the American people, get this message out to the people as part of his campaigning. It cured him very quickly and he is older. The fact is he risked taking an experimental drug, volunteered for it, and it has been demonstrated to be a success. This is a very positive development for people who are complaining he is not doing enough or is a bad manager in the fight against the covid flu.

    https://www.uchealth.org/today/does-regeneron-antibody-drug-that-trump-received-work-for-covid-19/

    One of the treatments President Donald Trump received soon after testing positive to COVID-19 was an experimental antibody cocktail from Regeneron.

    The drug is so new that the federal Food and Drug Administration has not approved it yet for most hospitalized COVID-19 patients. Trump received Regeneron for COVID-19 under what’s known as a “compassionate use” request.

    Trump took a personal risk, knowing it could either make him or break him, and he won. He now wants to make this available ASAP for all Americans who need it. A good manager does not have to develop a product, just know how to get it implemented so the many can benefit.

    About Trump's treatment plan Bill Gates also surprisingly says this will save more lives that any vaccine will. Of course stopping short of calling it a cure.


    Bill Gates says Trump's coronavirus treatment won't work for everyone, shouldn't be called 'cure'

    What looked like the beginning of a curse for him getting covid, God has turned into a blessing for the whole country. This doctor says Trump's leadership from the beginning of the china virus crisis has allowed them to be able to develop these new drugs, getting them the money and resources they needed from the get go..

    Dr. Downey, previously you were prescribing hydroxychloroquine as a cure for Covid. Now you are prescribing Regeneron as the cure. Tell us doctor, what new research have you studied that is causing this change in your prescription?

    Except quite a few around him also got the virus, which proved he had it also. Regeneron CEO said on the news they only have enough for 50,000 people at this moment, being it is an experimental drug not yet approved. Once approved they can make a lot more of this as then the market for it is open for business. You would not make 10's of millions of doses for something you can not sell, that is a foolish business decision, so we must wait on the pleasure of the government for now.

    which is why the US leads the world in number of infections, over 8 million, and deaths, over 219k. India which is over 4 times bigger than the US, has half the deaths! :rolleyes:

    Never happen I know, but I would love for a LEGITIMATE study to be made to confirm/deny the validity of at least half of the “confirmed” covid death cases.
    I would venture a guestimate that at least 50% would be from another cause, but had some evidence of covid.
    And considering the PC nature of this virus, I may be way low in this guestimate.

    President Trump has tested negative for the novel coronavirus “on consecutive days,” according to the White House physician, who maintained that the president “is not infectious to others.”

    White House physician Dr. Sean Conley, penned a memo to White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany, with the subject line: “President Donald J. Trump’s Negative COVID-19 Test.”

    Trump tests negative for coronavirus, 'not infectious to others,' White House physician says

    He is all better now, negative testing. Regardless of how you feel about Trump, this treatment worked really fast for him. Likely will for others, of course getting treated sooner than when near dead laying in hospital is a good idea.

    Well, as per the Jr. wicked witch of the west (KH), if it's truly effective, Trump only has to endorse it & NO dem that gets covid will take advantage of it. (Well, not publicly anyway.:Biggrin)

    Decimate the ranks of the left then. It does seem so many more of the left have died, mostly left states like NewYork and NewJersey.
    Do you recall Cuomo signing the abortion bill and proclaiming it by lighting up the city in pink? Just a few months later, came the covid virus. I always felt like that was God's judgement. If God decided the time was ripe for a major judgement against the evils of our land, instead of hundreds of thousands, tens of millions of deaths. God waits till the sins are complete to the brim before sending major judgements of destruction.
    Here God withheld the judgement on the people of Canaan for 400 years.
    Genesis 15:15-17
    15 Now as for you, you shall go to your fathers in peace; you shall be buried at a good old age. 16 But in the fourth generation they shall return here, for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet complete.”

    Y'all know the Regeneron therapy was derived from the HEK-293T cell line? Those cells come from an embryonic kidney harvested during an elective abortion in the Netherlands.

    Happened in 1973, As have many other vaccines also. They use human blood stem cells.

    Was Trump's Regeneron 'Cure' Developed Using Stem Cells and Fetal Tissues?

    However the company says they did not, snopes says it is a mixture of true and false, they use the cell lines to test against for effectiveness, not to create the vaccine. So not directly derived from human cells.

    While it is true that Regeneron has used stem cells for some of its research, no human stem cells or human embryonic stem cells were used in the development of REGN-COV2, according to Alexandria Bowie, a spokesperson for the company. An April 2020 statement issued by Regeneron confirmed that research using stem cells helps its scientists model complex diseases, test new drug candidates, and lead to scientific insights that may help spur the creation of new medicines — but the company contends that embryonic cells were not used in the production of REGN-CO2.


    “In short: we did not use human stem cells or human embryonic stem cells in the development of REGN-COV2,” Bowie told Snopes in an email.
