Nearly two weeks after testing positive for COVID-19, Dr. Ben Carson, U.S. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, believes he’s “out of the woods at this point” and is confident that “together we will be victorious” as “God is still in charge.”

“I have several co-morbidities and after a brief period when I only experienced minor discomfort, the symptoms accelerated and I became desperately ill,” the 69-year-old retired pediatric neurosurgeon shared on his Facebook page Friday.

Carson, a member of the White House coronavirus task force, said President Trump was following his condition and “cleared me for the monoclonal antibody therapy that he had previously received, which I am convinced saved my life.”

Thanks to Trump, “the fabulous White House medical team, and the phenomenal doctors at Walter Reed,” he added, “I do believe I am out of the woods at this point.” . . .

After the president tested positive for the novel coronavirus last month, he received antibody treatments from Regeneron Pharmaceuticals. Contrary to some claims, the drug was not derived from embryonic stem cells.

Regeneron is still awaiting emergency use authorization by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, according to NPR, which also said Eli Lilly’s monoclonal antibody therapy Bamlanivimab received authorization for emergency use last week.

“We did not use human stem cells or human embryonic stem cells in the development of REGN-COV2,” explained Regeneron’s Alexandra Bowie in a statement to The Christian Post last month. “We did use the HEK293T cell line to test our antibodies’ ability to neutralize the SARS-CoV-2 virus (they were used to make ‘pseudovirus’ that looks like the Spike protein).”

“I am hopeful that we can stop playing politics with medicine and instead combine our efforts and goodwill for the good of all people,” Carson continued in his post. “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.” . . .

Carson said “people should recognize that there are a number of defined steps that legally have to be taken before vaccines are released to the public,” cautioning that attempts “to cause alarm by saying dangerous shortcuts were taken” will only “stoke fear.”

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

Carson’s positive COVID-19 test came days after he attended an in-person, indoor party at the White House on election night.

Mark Meadows, the president’s chief of staff who also attended the White House party, also tested positive. At least five other people in the White House have tested positive for the virus.

I thank God so much for Dr Carsons recovery, for the good science involved, for all the faithfilled men and women working with and for the President including this websites producers.
I’m a wee old lady patriot, but I won’t stop praying and I won’t give up. It’s SO good to know that we’re all on the same team. Ultimately of course, that’s God’s, then President Trumps’s, America’s, and the world’s.
God bless you ALL!

Yes, Father Yhovah is in control! He told me that I and my household were COVERED IN THE BLOOD and the plague would pass over. Therefore, I do not wear a mask and I will not be getting any vaccine. JUST AN ASIDE HERE, He gave me this Word just before we knew about Covid-19. I trust Father to continue to care for me until I am caught up!!!

Lord. Thank you for using this circumstance to bring knowledge of the inequalities of treatments offered to all patients that are ill with this virus.We can see humbleness and an awakened spirit flowing through Mr Carson. May you rise up others that will take a stand toward helping those patients that Providers are not providing the medications that could save their lives. Breakdown the barriers to make accessible to all. Amen
