Operation Warp Speed may have saved the President’s life – ironically he was the man behind the project.
President Trump walked out of the hospital tonight after contracting the China coronavirus last Thursday.
After only a weekend in the hospital the President is safely back in the White House. He may be to blame for his own recovery.
Bloomberg wrote on April 29, 2020:
The Trump administration is organizing a Manhattan Project-style effort to drastically cut the time needed to develop a coronavirus vaccine, with a goal of making enough doses for most Americans by year’s end.
Called “Operation Warp Speed,” the program will pull together private pharmaceutical companies, government agencies and the military to try to cut the development time for a vaccine by as much as eight months, according to two people familiar with the matter.
As part of the arrangement, taxpayers will shoulder much of the financial risk that vaccine candidates may fail, instead of drug companies.
The project’s goal is to have 300 million doses of vaccine available by January, according to one administration official. There is no precedent for such rapid development of a vaccine.
This past week after contracting the coronavirus, President Trump took the following medications:
President Donald Trump’s physicians are using several medications – including an experimental drug and an over-the-counter heartburn medication — on the 74-year-old in an effort to relieve the symptoms of Covid-19 and hopefully shorten the course of his illness.
Dr. Sean Conley, the president’s physician, said Sunday that Trump was given a steroid called dexamethasone after his blood oxygen level had dropped twice in two days, but he “has continued to improve” since then. The president is also receiving a vitamin and aspirin.
Conley also revealed the other drugs Trump is being treated with. Here is a look at those medications:
Dexamethasone has been shown to reduce deaths in patients who are the sickest from the infection.
Steroids suppress the immune system, something that has been shown to help those with severe COVID-19 cases. The drug works to calm the immune response to the virus, helping some whose immune response goes into overdrive, causing other sometimes fatal responses.
Some doctors who are not treating the president have questioned the use of the steroid on a patient who is said not to be suffering from severe symptoms of the virus.
