Doctors throughout New York state are giving their critically ill coronavirus patients massive doses of vitamin C, a tactic said to have helped those hit the hardest in China.

Dr Andrew Weber, a Long Island based pulmonologist and critical-care specialist with Northwell Health, shared that he has been immediately giving his intensive-care patients 1,500 milligrams of intravenous vitamin C.

The article goes on to state the following:

Those patients are then re-administered the doses of the powerful antioxidant three or four times a day, the doctor explained to the New York Post.

The regimen is based on experimental coronavirus treatments in Shanghai, China.

Patients given vitamin C did ” significantly better than those who did not get vitamin C,” he said.

Weber said the treatment is a tremendous help, “but it is not highlighted because it’s not a sexy drug.”

Jason Molinet, a spokesman for Northwell Health, New York’s largest healthcare provider, said the amount given to each patient varies “as the clinician decides,” adding that Vitamin C is being “widely used” to treat coronavirus.
