5:31 am PST. It looks like finally someone is using Intravenous Vitamin C in the United States in a conventional hospital setting. It looks like the NY Post is the only one who has reported on this. I will repost parts here with a link: https://nypost.com/2020/03/24/new-york-hospitals-treating-coronavirus-patients-with-vitamin-c/
“Seriously sick coronavirus patients in New York state’s largest hospital system are being given massive doses of vitamin C — based on promising reports that it’s helped people in hard-hit China, The Post has learned.”
“The patients who received vitamin C did significantly better than those who did not get vitamin C,” Dr. Weber said. “It helps a tremendous amount, but it is not highlighted because it’s not a sexy drug.”
The vitamin C is administered in addition to such medicines as the anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine, the antibiotic azithromycin, various biologics and blood thinners, Weber said.
A spokesman for Northwell — which operates 23 hospitals, including Lenox Hill Hospital on Manhattan’s Upper East Side — said vitamin C was being “widely used” as a coronavirus treatment throughout the system, but noted that medication protocols varied from patient to patient.
