Patients receiving vitamin C doing "significantly better" than those who don't, doctor says.
The critical nutrient is being administered in massive doses to severely ill patients, along with a combination of other medicines, including hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin, both of which have received increased attention recently.
Dr. Andrew G. Weber, a pulmonologist and critical-care specialist affiliated with two Northwell Health facilities on Long Island, said his intensive-care patients with the coronavirus immediately receive 1,500 milligrams of intravenous vitamin C, the Post reports.
The patients receive identical doses three or four more times per day, Dr. Weber explained.
These doctors are forgetting the zinc. It needs to work with the chloroquine.
