Hospitals treating coronavirus patients with Vitamin C

March 27th, 2020

The latest reports from New York State have seen doctors giving critically ill Coronavirus patients extremely high doses of Vitamin C, 3-4 times a day. When we say “extremely high”, we mean more than 16x the daily recommended amount given by the National Institute of Health.

Why? Well, this method has seen promising results in China, so Dr Andrew Weber, who is a pulmonologist based in Long Island, immediately started giving patients in Intensive Care 1500 milligrams of Vitamin C per day, administered intravenously.

Levels of Vitamin C have been seen to drop dramatically in patients who have suffered with sepsis, so therefore dramatically raising these levels works to safeguard against this happening.

Doctor Weber said: “The patients who recieved vitamin C did significantly better than those who did not get vitamin C.“

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.
