Coronavirus infected patients in the US take large doses of vitamin C and feel better
Patients who are seriously ill in New York State due to coronavirus receive large doses of vitamin C.
This is based on a promising report that has helped people who have been badly affected in China. Dr. Andrew G. Weber, a pulmonologist, says his coronavirus intensive care patients receive 1500 milligrams of intravenous vitamin C.
Identical amounts of strong antioxidant are reused three to four times a day, he says. This dose is 16 times the daily vitamin C dietary recommendation of the Institute of Health, which is 90 milligrams for adult men and 75 milligrams for adult women.
Hospitals in New York are administering the experimental treatment applied to people with coronavirus in Shanghai, China, Webber told NYpost.
“Patients who received vitamin C were significantly better than those who did not receive vitamin C,” he said.
Otherwise, the clinical trial of the efficacy of intravenous vitamin C in patients infected with Covid-19 began on 14 February at a hospital in Wuhan.
