New Delhi. Doctors are giving strong doses of vitamin C to Corona patients admitted to hospitals in New York. Actually, vitamin C, which strengthened the body’s immune system, was also used by Chinese doctors to treat corona patients. The results were also good.
Recovery is better
Dr. Andrew Weber of Northwell Health Hospital in New York said that he provides 1500mg of vitamin C dose through veins as soon as serious corona patients start treatment. After this, three to four times a day, and vitamin C supplements are delivered to the body. Actually, the work of giving extra doses of vitamin C was started by doctors at Zhongnan Hospital in Wuhan. Doctors found that patients who were given vitamin C along with other drugs had a better recovery than those who did not take vitamin C.
16 times a dose
American doctors are also following this experience of Chinese doctors. Dr. Weber shared his experience that an adult male in the US needs 90 and a woman 75 mg of vitamin C daily, but a corona patient is being given sixteen times this dose at once.
Dr. Weber said that patients are being given the malaria drug Hydroxychloroquine and the antibiotic azithromycin along with Vitamin C. Apart from this, blood thinning medicines are also being given.
According to Dr. Weber, when there is more outbreak of corona infection, sepsis is created in the body. It causes a complete lack of vitamin C in the body. This causes the body’s resistance to deteriorate greatly. Plenty of vitamin C is given to the patient to correct it.
Over 25000 cases in New York
Northwest Health Group spokesman Jason Molinet also said that vitamin C is being used to treat corona patients. The group operates 23 large hospitals across the state. More than 700 Corona patients are under treatment. However, he did not clarify how many are being given vitamin C along with other medicines. Corona currently has 25,665 cases in New York.
According to the US National Library of Medicines of America, vitamin C trials have been going on since 14 February at Zhongnan Hospital in Wuhan. A complete report regarding this trial will be available till September.
