March 27th, 2020

Doctors in New York State are giving their critically sick coronavirus patients extremely high doses of vitamin C, a method based on promising reports to have helped patients in China. 

Dr Andrew Weber, a Long Island based pulmonologist and critical-care specialist shared that he has immediatley giving his intensive care patients 1,500 milligrams of intravenous Vitamin C. 

This amount of the powerful antioxidant are administered three to four times a day. Each dose is more than 16 times the National Institute of Health’s daily recommendation allowance. 

Doctor Weber said: 

“The patients who recieved vitamin C did significantly better than those who did not get vitamin C.“

Weber said, vitamin C levels in corona virus patients drop dramatically when they suffer sepsis, an inflammatory response that occurs when their bodies react to the infection. 

He said, “It makes all the sense in the world to try and maintain levels of vitamin C.”

A clinical trial on the effectiveness of intravenous vitamin C on coronavirus patients began on February 14th at Zhongnan Hospital in Wuhan, China.
