Trump: “You Don’t Really Need Drugs” To Beat COVID

The New York Daily News reports:

President Trump boasted Thursday that he doesn’t need any help beating coronavirus — and you don’t either. The COVID-stricken president said he is strong enough to win his fight against the deadly virus without treatment, an ill-informed statement considering that 210,000 Americans have succumbed to the pandemic.

“I think I would have done it fine without drugs. You don’t really need drugs,” Trump told Fox News. “You catch it and then you get better. And then you are immune,” Trump added. Trump praised the experimental anti-body treatment that he was given last Friday, calling the drug a “cure” for COVID-19.

“I view it as a cure because I took it,” Trump said. “It’s great, it made me better, I’ll tell you right now.”“I don’t think I’m contagious at all,” said Trump, without offering any evidence to back up his claim.
