PRESS RELEASE: Placebo-controlled clinical study documents that Vitamin C greatly reduces mortality in patients at life-threatening stage of COVID-19

 A press release from the Rath Foundation:

A randomized, placebo-controlled clinical intervention study in patients at advanced stages of COVID-19 has documented that high-dose vitamin C can cut the death rate almost in half compared to a control group that received the placebo.

The multi-center clinical study was coordinated by the University Hospital of Wuhan, China, the site of the outbreak of the current pandemic. It included COVID-19 patients admitted to intensive care units because of the severity of the life-threatening stage of their infections. All these severely ill patients received standard medical treatment. In addition, one study group received daily doses of 24 grams of vitamin C, given intravenously, while another group received a placebo. Administration of vitamin C resulted in cutting the death rate (mortality) in about half, compared to those patients who only received the placebo.

Patients receiving vitamin C treatment also had a significantly better oxygenation of their blood, indicating that oxygen can better diffuse across the alveolar cells of the lung to saturate the red blood cells. . .

Why are we not being told to supplement with Vitamin C as a preventative?
