North Carolina Treasurer Dale Folwell is back at home after spending five days in the hospital battling COVID-19 and he’s thankful for both the power of prayer and his ability to try an experimental treatment for the virus, he said.

Folwell was never on a ventilator, but his oxygen levels got low enough that doctors administered hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin, an experimental treatment researchers hope will help patients since the FDA hasn’t approved any treatments. Folwell said he started feeling better within 24 to 48 hours.

“I’m not the expert on that to know how it impacted me, but from that point forward the goal was to get me off oxygen,” Folwell, 61, told FOX Business.

Folwell was diagnosed with the virus in late March and admitted to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem, N.C., on March 29. Three other employees in the treasurer’s office have tested positive for the virus, The Raleigh News & Observer reported.

Folwell’s goal is a full recovery as he continues to manage the state’s multibillion-dollar pension and health plans.

“We all take breathing for granted,” Folwell said. “There’s a war going on in everyone who’s tested positive, inside their chest, with the virus and their immune system.”

The National Institutes of Health said Thursday it had begun a clinical trial of hydroxychloroquine in patients with coronavirus.

Many U.S. hospitals are currently using hydroxychloroquine as first-line therapy for hospitalized patients with COVID-19.

I’ve railed against this in the media that we are a part of, and the way that the propaganda reacts to this is, “Ignore it. Ignore all of this.” I’m saying this now because the general public has to be the one that gets angry. The general public should be furious at the way people have been treated in the country by suppression of these drugs, by that kind of website that suppresses the ability of doctors to practice medicine.

A Judge Stands up to a Hospital: “Step Aside” and Give a Dying Man Ivermectin

The judge’s finest moment may have been when he dashed the most glaring myth about ivermectin—that it is not safe, despite decades of use that shows otherwise. Noting that all drugs have side effects, Judge Fullerton listed ivermectin’s effects from a government website.
“(N)umber one, generally well tolerated; number two, dizziness; number three, pruritus; number four, nausea/diarrhea. These are the side effects for the dosage that’s being asked to be administered,” he said. “The risks of these side effects are so minimal that Mr. Ng’s current situation outweighs that risk by one-hundredfold.”
