Coronavirus is hitting every state and country all around the world. New York is one of them, every sick case of COVID-19 is being treated in the hospitals of New York. The hospital system is giving them huge doses of Vitamin C. it is been given on the reports which say that vitamin C has helped affected patients in China.
A pulmonologist as well as a specialist in critical care, Dr. Andrew G. Weber is linked with Northwell Health facilities in Long Island. He says that during the intensive care his patient hit with coronavirus are given 1500 milligrams of vitamin C.
The antioxidants which are similar to vitamin C are checked around 2-4 times in a day, Dr. Andrew said.
Every dose of vitamin C which is given to the patients is 16 times more than recommended by the National Institutes of Health’s Daily. The dietary permission of vitamin C to men is about 90 milligrams and women are 75 milligrams.
The complete rule is sheer experimental on the people who are facing coronavirus in Shanghai, China as said by Weber. He further added that “the patients of coronavirus have shown some sort of improvement getting vitamin C but is the complete opposite in people who have did not.”
A spokesman managing 23 hospitals, as well as Lenox Hill Hospital located on Upper East Side of Manhattan, said, vitamin C was in use as a treatment to coronavirus during the system but the results of the medication procedure were different in every case.
Jason Molinet, a spokesman said, “as the doctor decides.” Around 700 patients are getting complete treatment for COVID-19 all around the network of hospitals. But it is difficult to say which patient is getting vitamin C treatment, he further added.
The use of vitamin C is directed in the count to medicines including anti-malaria medicine hydroxychloroquine, anti-biotic azithromycin, and different blood thinners, etc. Weber said.
On the basis of “compassionate care” the patients who are highly suffering are permitted by federal to give medicine of hydroxycholoquine and azithromycin. This happened on Tuesday.
On the other hand, tweet done by President Trump says an unproven combination of medicines can prove to be the greatest game-changers in medicinal history.
Weber said that vitamin c level in the body of a patient gradually decreases when they face sepsis. This is an inflammatory result which happens due to overreaction to the infection by the body of a patient.
Dr. Weber said that “all this completely makes clear sense that there is a need to maintain the level of vitamin C in the body.”
At the epicenter of pandemic coronavirus, Zhongnan Hospital, Wuhan, China a trial of clinical efficiency of intravenous vitamin C was tested. This began on 14 February in China.
A piece of information published on the website of the US National Library Of Medicine’s said that a random and triple-blind study will be conducted including 140 participants. This study is estimated to be completed by September 30.
