Dr. Ben Carson thanked President Donald Trump in an emotional post on Facebook for helping save his life from the coronavirus.

Carson Was ‘Extremely Sick’ From COVID

Carson, the Secretary of State for Housing and Urban Development, tested positive for the coronavirus earlier this month, following the positive tests of other key members of the Trump cabinet and administration.

In a post on Facebook, Carson revealed that he was “extremely sick” from coronavirus, due to the fact that he had “several co-morbidities.” This led to Carson becoming “desperately ill” after a short period of “minor discomfort.”

Thankfully for Carson, President Trump had been following his condition, and ensured that he was cleared for the monoclonal antibody therapy, which Carson is “convinced” 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 thankfully revealed.

Vaccine Coming Next Month

Carson asserted that we must now prioritize “getting comparable treatments and care to everyone as soon as possible.” He added that there are a number of “promising” treatments on the horizon and they should be tested, approved, and distributed “as soon as possible.”

The timeframe for the return to a “semblance of normalcy” that Carson talked about currently looks about May next year, according to a timeline created by Operation Warp Speed’s top advisor, Dr. Moncef Slaoui.

Operation Warp Speed was allocated nearly $10 billion from the Trump administration. President Trump was initially derided by the mainstream press for claiming a vaccine could be seen before the end of the year. However, Pfizer and Moderna announced their vaccines this month.

Slaoui told CNN’s Jake Tapper that the country may reach herd immunity levels by that point in time, with an advisory panel set to meet on December 10th to discuss whether or not to approve the vaccines developed by Pfizer and Moderna.

If approved, the vaccines should be shipped from the 11th or 12th of December. A 95% efficacy rate should allow a 70% immunity rate by May, creating herd immunity.
