President Donald Trump of the United States of America has described his novel coronavirus (COVID-19) infection as a “blessing from God”.
President Trump stated this in the over four-minute video filmed outside the Oval Office and posted on his Twitter page on Wednesday.
The US President said his COVID-19 infection was a blessing in disguise, as he understood what Americans went through.
He said he wanted all Americans to have access to the treatments he was given – and promised to provide the drugs free of charge.
He also claimed the experimental antibody cocktail he received last week was a cure rather than a therapeutic – and said hundreds of thousands of doses were nearly ready.
But the drugs produced by Regeneron Pharmaceuticals have not been approved by the US federal regulators.
“This was a blessing in disguise – I caught it, I heard about this drug, I said let me take it and it was incredible,” he said, adding that he would seek emergency use authorisations for the drugs.
