Filmed live at the Hive, Atlanta, Georgia, on October 7, 2020. Dr. Baxter discusses President Donald J. Trump’s recent COVID-19 diagnosis and treatment. The President’s case is unique because he received a treatment cocktail that is unique in the world. Dr. Baxter cautions against asking for these unique, non-standard treatments.
A few baseline comments: The disease progresses relatively slowly. Up to 14-day incubation period. Guideline: quarantine/stay away from others for 10 days after last symptom.
What was in the president’s unique cocktail? A big dose of monoclonal antibodies – currently being studied as a treatment. Quite a few treatments from the Marik/EVMS Critical Care COVID-19 Management Protocol: Famotidine, Melatonin, Zinc, Vitamins C & D. He also received Remdesivir and the steroid treatment Dexamethasone (Decadron®).
