President Donald Trump says getting infected with COVID-19 was a “blessing from God.”

Mr Trump attributes him feeling well to the experimental antibody therapy he got from Regeneron Pharmaceuticals Inc.

Mr Trump said he is working on an “emergency use authorization” so other people suffering from the coronavirus will be able to get the same drug their president is getting.

Regeneron’s experimental therapy is still undergoing trials and has yet to be approved by the US government, but Mr Trump said he would be issuing emergency authorisations for the treatment, calling it a “cure”. However it is unclear if he has the power to order that himself.
