Breaking News: COVID-19 patients getting vitamin C therapy in N.Y. hospitals

• by Sara Middleton

Diving headfirst into a flurry of clinical trials and experimental drugs are medical teams in New York, one of the hardest hit areas in the U.S.

One "therapy" out of New York City that doesn't seem to be getting quite as much press coverage as it should – despite actually having years of research to back up its use – is higher than normal amounts of vitamin C.  Could something as simple as a nutrient be a potentially successful remedy in the fight against such an unknown (life-threatening) viral infection?

New York doctors express optimism over a vitamin therapy given to COVID-19 patients

Earlier reports out of China indicate that high amounts of vitamin C – delivered intravenously – have been effective in managing COVID-19 cases.  Critical care doctors from New York have taken note, and in some places are reportedly administering 1,500 milligrams of intravenous vitamin C – three to four times per day – to confirmed COVID-19 patients.
