Dr. Ben Carson, Housing and Urban Development Secretary, is thanking everyone, including God, for helping him get through the worst of his COVID-19 diagnosis.

In a Facebook post, Carson shared that he experienced a “dramatic improvement’ after taking Oleander 4X. However shortly after his symptoms worsened and he became despriatly ill, likely due to several co-morbidities.

Carson shared that President Trump cleared Carson for the monoclonal antibiody therapy that he himselfe took during his fight with COVID-19. Carson believes that this treatment saved his life.

“President Trump, the fabulous White House medical team, and the phenomenal doctors at Walter Reed have been paying very close attention to my health and I do believe I am out of the woods at this point,” Carson wrote.

He hopes that “that we can stop playing politics with medicine and instead combine our efforts and goodwill for the good of all people. While I am blessed to have the best medical care in the world (and I am convinced it saved my life), we must prioritize getting comparable treatments and care to everyone as soon as possible.”

He did acknowledge, though, that these treatments need more testing before being released to the public.

“There are a number of promising treatments that need to be tested, approved, and distributed (sooner rather than later) so that the economy can be re-opened and we can all return to a semblance of normalcy,” he explained. “Also, people should recognize that there are a number of defined steps that legally have to be taken before vaccines are released to the public and trying to cause alarm by saying dangerous shortcuts were taken only serves to stoke fear.”

“Together we will be victorious. God is still in charge,” he finished.
