    Reply To: President Trump Tests Positive For SARS-Cov-2

According to CBS News, Trump is has taken a dose of an experimental antibody cocktail from Regeneron Pharmaceuticals. Regeneron’s press release about this product explains:

To develop REGN-COV2, Regeneron scientists evaluated thousands of fully-human antibodies produced by the company’s VelocImmune® mice, which have been genetically modified to have a human immune system, as well as antibodies identified from humans who have recovered from COVID-19. The two potent, virus-neutralizing antibodies that form REGN-COV2 bind non-competitively to the critical receptor binding domain of the virus’s spike protein, which diminishes the ability of mutant viruses to escape treatment and protects against spike variants that have arisen in the human population…​

Which sounds like it could be the effective and yet profitable remedy that our pharmaceutical industry has been waiting for.

    A Story about Masks

Sorry to hear that Trump has been hospitalized. Hope the Regeneron drug therapy is good. Would be interesting to hear Chris’ take on it. This was the first I had heard of it.

Since he’s the president, whatever happens to him will probably affect our national narrative about Covid more than the next 20,000 (or however many) people who get it.

If Trump recovers easily from corona virus, he might double down on “you don’t really need to wear masks” narrative. At the debate he mocked Biden for wearing masks and Trump’s guests were reported to mostly not be wearing masks and to have refused masks when offered them.

If Trump experiences a serious bout of the illness, might he change his tune on masks? Who knows. But either way, I think there’s a good chance it will strongly impact the mask debate in our country.

    effective yet profitable

jerryr-

I find your observation about this “insightful” – a term a friend of mine and I tend to use whenever someone says something we wholeheartedly agree with.  🙂

Yeah.  Still, effective yet profitable (antibody cocktail?) beats profitable, but useless (remdesivir).

And if there is an approved treatment for COVID-19, that means they can’t make vaccines mandatory.  Theoretically.  From what I heard anyway.

    What Trump is and may be using

Careful going to sources like CBS News for information about this. Does anyone here expect them NOT to lie, in every way they think will benefit their election chances?

He might still be using HCQ prophylactically (although if he does he likely wouldn’t’ve caught the virus and developed symptoms).

An official statement was released yesterday saying he has taken / been given Regeneron’s polyclonal antibody cocktail, and that he’s been taking “zinc, vitamin d, famotidine, melatonin and a daily aspirin”.

He “remains fatigued but in good spirits” (as of Oct 2nd).

CBS says:

Regeneron has confirmed it provided the experimental antibody cocktail REGN-COV2 to the White House under a compassionate use request, which allows a patient who has a life-threatening condition or serious disease or condition to receive a trial medical product when “no comparable or satisfactory alternative therapy options are available,” according to the FDA.

I hadn’t heard of this one yet. It’s “experimental” but I suppose it’s perceived to be superior to meplazumab, tocilizumab, leronlimab, STI-1499… I would’ve probably opted for convalescent plasma first, after of course HCQ+zinc+AZM, ivermectin, NAC, and maybe CDS. Who knows what’s really happening though… this is an information war and the other side is forced into playing in every situation.

 

@David Henry

We wish. Does Trump control the narrative? Absolutely not, and that’s why we’re all in the same boat as Trump. Their attacks against him, and their attacks against Western society (the concept of the nuclear family, men and masculinity, heterosexuality, gender/biological differences, white people, etc), are the same attacks by the same people against ALL of us.

If Trump recovers easily from corona virus, he might double down on “you don’t really need to wear masks” narrative. At the debate he mocked Biden for wearing masks and Trump’s guests were reported to mostly not be wearing masks and to have refused masks when offered them.

He “mocked” him (kinda) for wearing the mask everywhere as a virtue-signalling political act. I mock those people too (to hopefully plant a seed that can help them wake up). People wearing them in their cars, in empty streets, in the mountain in the middle of nowhere…

If Trump experiences a serious bout of the illness, might he change his tune on masks? Who knows. But either way, I think there’s a good chance it will strongly impact the mask debate in our country.

I don’t understand the continued over-focus on masks… when a far bigger factor is the suppressed known effective treatments (of which he’s officially using only 1 [we don’t know the dose though], unofficially possibly also HCQ, and if he were smart he’d be using ivermectin and/or chlorine dioxide).

    President Trump Tests Positive For SARS-Cov-2

I ll make a prediction.  The president lives if he is taking HCQ.  He dies if not.( I believe this because i know the more experimental our drs try to play god, the more harm they do.  )  cant go with the cheap stuff, that is old and proven,  because no money there.    I bet the deep state and the HCQ cover will never let you know the truth.  I would be very surprised if he says FU to the remdesivir  and give me the HCQ..   but the govt says he is on the remdesivir   I call BS right now.

    latest update – 10/3

https://youtu.be/Kj7Arj03nUk?t=2496

From the WH doctor, Sean Conley, at Walter Reed: apparently, Trump had a fever before – but now, no more fever.  He had a first course of Remdesivir. I hope it doesn’t end up causing too much organ damage.

Trump hasn’t needed oxygen.

It all sounds positive.  He’s been dosed with anti-viral treatments early in the course of the disease.  Next few days we should know for sure.

I would have asked about his viral load.  That’s the key (in my mind) to tracking resolution of his case.

All the treatments sound pretty good.  No HCQ.  Maybe his staff talked him out of that.  Or like TBP said, maybe its top secret.

The good doctor is also a capable politician.

    Perhaps a Stool Transplant

Maybe both the incumbent and challenger would benefit from a fecal microbiota transplant for a variety of health issues.

    President Trump Tests Positive For SARS-Cov-2

For many days it all sounded positive for Boris Johnson too. Fine. Mild symptoms. Still working as PM. Nothing to see here folks. Fine. Hospital for precautionary measure. Then very bad ….. then eventual recovery.

For many thousands of other people it all seems fine too …. at first…

    seems fine

YLS-

Trump is so much better off than poor BoJo.

The WH doc knows about zinc, about that vitamin-D trial in spain – where everyone who got vit-D was able to avoid the ICU.  And all the rest.  They caught it early.  I mean, its possible remdesivir does something evil to him – there are stories that it causes organ damage.  But apart from that, odds are, he’ll be over this in a week.

They should be able to track his progress using viral load – as Raoult did in his trials.  Once it drops to undetectable, it will all be over.

Pity those reporters asking questions had no clue about viral load.

    President Trump Tests Positive For SARS-Cov-2

Chris stated in his last video he was no longer afraid of having COVID-19, because there is now solid evidence of the effectiveness of drugs like Ivermectin.

Chris,  you should still be afraid as those drugs are not being used in the USA.  The President is being treated with Remdesivir not Ivermectin.   If we get sick the treatment will be the same for us.   Seems like the NIH holds money for Big Pharma above human life.  Even the Presidents life.
