US President Donald Trump (74) will be given a preventive cocktail of synthetic antibodies, his doctor said in a Friday statement. Earlier in the day, Trump reported on Twitter that he and his wife Melania have tested positive for the corona virus.

What treatment will Trump receive?

Sean Conley, Trump’s doctor, says the president has mild symptoms of the virus and is fatigued. The doctor adds that Trump is “cheerful” and that his wife Melania only suffers from a mild cough and headache.

Trump is receiving experimental treatment from the American pharmaceutical company Regeneron, Conley writes. He also takes zinc, vitamin D, famotidine, melatonin and paracetamol supplements.

The president would also have a mild fever since Friday morning, a source said CNN who knows about Trump’s condition.

Regeneron treatment is a so-called “cocktail” of one or more antibodies made in a lab. Research into this cocktail is currently in phase three, testing the safety of a drug on larger groups of people.

Scientists have called the treatment “promising,” said CNN. Last Tuesday, Regeneron reported the first results of a clinical trial, which would be positive. The company emphasized that it was a small group of only 275 people. They are also preliminary results, which have yet to be checked by colleagues according to the rigorous scientific peer review system.

Since Trump’s positive test, there has been feverish testing within American politics. Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, who was on stage with Trump last week, has been tested negative.
