“I was very sick,” says Ben Carson, a writer on HIV.
Carson, for his part, said he had received experimental treatment, as was done to President Donald Trump last month. Carson said, “I will save his life.”
Carson said: “I have a lot of comorbidities, and soon after I felt a little uncomfortable, the symptoms subsided and I became very ill. I was convinced that President Trump had survived my condition and that I had been treated for monoclonal antibodies.
There are several mononuclear antibodies in the trial that are not approved for FDA emergency use. It is not clear which drug Carson was given.
Carson was among a large number of White House staffers and Trump contacts who had contracted cholera in the past seven weeks. In addition to Corson and Trump, former New Jersey governor Chris Christie was among those who met with Trump to be treated at the Coronavirus Hospital.
“I hope to stop playing politics and join our efforts and volunteer for the benefit of all,” Carson said. Although I am blessed to have the best medical care in the world (and I am sure it saved my life), we must prioritize access to affordable treatment and care as soon as possible.
