Trump says ‘miracle’ antibody treatment will get emergency use ‘very soon’
President Trump on Sunday said emergency use authorization should be coming “very soon” so that everybody can get the “miracle” antibody treatment he believes is a “cure” for coronavirus.
“I know people call it a therapeutic, but to me it’s a cure,” Trump told Fox News of Regeneron’s experimental cocktail of monoclonal antibodies he took while hospitalized from COVID-19.
“We’re going to be delivering that to hospitals — we’re waiting for the emergency use authorization,” he said, promising it would be coming “very soon.”
“We’re going to be delivering that to hospitals all over the country — and ultimately all over the world — because it’s it’s incredible,” he said, calling the treatment made by a New York-based firm a “miracle.”
“We’ll clean out the hospitals — we’ll get everybody out of the hospitals,” he told Maria Bartiromo on “Sunday Morning Futures.”
Trump again said he “felt really good almost after taking it” — while stressing that he “would have done well anyway” battling the contagion because he is so healthy.
“But, you know, who wants to take a chance, as the expression goes,” he said.
