American Hospitals Treat Coronavirus Patients With Vitamin C by hbatagarawa: 8:42pm On Mar 25, 2020
Two New York-based hospitals in USA are treating coronavirus patients with Vitamin C, the age-old immune-system booster, an indication that sometimes the most difficult situations can be addressed by the most simple of measures.

The treatment of large doses of Vitamin C comes from the positive reports of success from Shanghai, China’s own outbreak in the global pandemic, the N.Y. Post reported.

“The patients who received Vitamin C did significantly better than those who did not get Vitamin C,” Dr. Andrew Weber told the Post of prescriptions of 1,500 milligrams of intravenous Vitamin C three or four times a day to the most seriously ill patients.

That dosage is more than 16 times the daily recommended dietary allowance as set by the U.S. National Institutes of Health.

“It helps a tremendous amount, but it is not highlighted because it’s not a sexy drug,” Weber told the Post.

The dosage above is not unilateral across two Northwell Health facilities on Long Island, spokesman Jason Molinet told the Post, “as the clinician decides.”

China has also reported success with traditional Eastern medicine remedies, pushed as a “Chinese solution” to the coronavirus pandemic. China has given 85% of its coronavirus patients herbal remedies in addition to mainstream antiviral drugs, according to the Ministry of Science and Technology.

About 700 patients at Northwell Health are administered Vitamin C in addition to such medicines as the anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine, the antibiotic azithromycin, and various biologics and blood thinners, Weber told the Post.

“It makes all the sense in the world to try and maintain this level of vitamin C,” he concluded.

I won't doubt this hypothesis, at a time like this, medicine needs to fire from all cylinders to see if we can stumble upon the possible remedy.

Vitamin C has always been a wonder drug, right from the history of the discovery...during the days of scury.

The vitamin is an immune booster, and it biochemicaly plays a vital role of Hydroxylation, in the build up of collagen formation.

However, that is not to say Nigerians should start abusing it like they did to chloroquine, sticking to the routing dose of one tablet a day can do, as a prophylactic

They should be careful with misinformation. People have died from chloroquine.

Yes, there is an overdose for every medication. The daily prescribed dosage for an average adult ranges from 65-90mg, depending on the patient. Meanwhile different fresh fruits and vegetables we eat already contains vitamin c.


The maximum limit is about 2000mg, after which there might be symptoms like nausea, diarrhea, heartburn, headache, aggravation of gastritis, etc.

Please let us endeavour not to abuse any medication, drugs are small but mighty, eating them in large quantities like food is mostly toxic than therapeutic.
