On Wednesday, President Donald Trump stated that being diagnosed with COVID-19 was a "blessing in disguise." Before people start getting their knickers in a twist, he is referring to the fact that he was treated with the experimental drug Regeneron, which appears to have helped heal him quickly.
“I think this was a blessing from God that I caught it. This is a blessing in disguise,” Trump said in a video on Twitter.
The president said that when he went to Walter Reed Hospital, he asked his doctors about taking Regeneron’s drug to treat COVID-19. The company provided the drug to Trump in response to a compassionate use request from his doctors. The drug is an antibody cocktail called REGN-COV2. The drug has not been approved by the Food and Drug Administration although it is in a phase three trial that began in July.
“I went in, I wasn’t feeling so hot, and within a very short period of time then they gave me Regeneron … I think this was the key … It was like unbelievable, I felt good immediately,” the president said. “To me, it wasn’t therapeutic, it just made me better."

"I call that a cure," he added. "That’s what I want for everybody, I want everybody to be given the same treatment as your president, because I feel great."
The president also promoted a similar antibody drug under development by Eli Lilly and Company seeking approval from the Federal Drug Administration.
Trump said he wanted to make the drug available for the rest of Americans and also make it free.
“If you’re in the hospital, and you’re feeling really bad, I think we’re going to work it so that you’re going get them, and you’re going to get them free,” Trump announced. “Especially if you’re a senior, we’re going to get you in there quick.”
