In addition to the experimental antibody therapy, Trump was also given remdesivir and dexamethasone
While it is obvious that quality of treatment that the US President receive will vary from a normal American, but the Covid -19 treatment President Trump has been getting is not even available to the general public.
However, President Trump seems to be oblivious to the fact that millions with the virus do not have access to the drugs and treatment he received.
Which makes the situation even more dire when Trump told millions of his loyal followers not to be afraid of Covid, reports the CNN.
Trump tweeted on Monday -"I feel better than I did 20 years ago!" - failing to mention that he only did so because of special treatment, which the general mass will never get.
Before he was hospitalized Friday, Trump received Regeneron's experimental antibody therapy -- which may reduce levels of coronavirus and has shown promising results in a trial involving 275 patients.
But the treatment has not yet received emergency use authorisation from the Food and Drug Administration. Biotech company Regeneron said it provided the drug after receiving a "compassionate use" request from Trump's doctors.
For most people, "getting access to not-yet-approved drugs through a compassionate use request can be a long and challenging process," the Mayo Clinic said, listing a series of requirements that most patients would need to meet.
But Trump received the therapeutic Friday, just one day after he tested positive for Covid-19, according to the White House press secretary and Trump's doctor.
"Of course, this is the President of the USA. He is going to get the kitchen sink thrown at him medically, offered all there is -- whether it's authorised under emergency use or not, in the case of the antibody treatment," epidemiologist Dr Seema Yasmin said.
"But then there are (almost) 210,000 Americans who have died over the past few months because the pandemic response has been so bad. And they certainly didn't get access to this kind of treatment."
That's not the only advantage Trump has compared to the hundreds of thousands of other Americans who have been hospitalized with coronavirus.
Trump may be 'the only patient on the planet' to get these 3 drugs
In addition to the experimental antibody therapy, Trump was also given remdesivir and dexamethasone.
"The President might be the only patient on the planet ever to receive this particular combination of medicines," said Dr Jonathan Reiner, a professor of medicine at George Washington University.
Remdesivir has not received FDA approval for the treatment of Covid-19, but it's gotten an emergency use authorisation from the agency.
Clinical trials have shown that a five-day course of remdesivir can speed recovery times in some patients. But the antiviral can also cause side effects such as anemia, liver toxicity and kidney toxicity.
Remdesivir is administered by IV, so patients are typically hospitalized when getting the five-day course.
But Trump's doctors let him go home early Monday evening to finish the treatment. Unlike other Americans' homes, Trump has an in-house White House Medical Unit, "where he'll be surrounded by world-class medical care," his physician Dr Sean Conley said.
