Trump Put On Steroid Recommended For 'Severe' COVID-19 Cases, 'May Cause Harm In Less Severe Cases'

It appears our President is being pumped full of experimental drugs, first Regeneron's antibody cocktail, next Gilead's Remdesivir and now dexamethasone, a steroid recommended for "severe" coronavirus cases that "may cause harm to those with less severe cases."

From CNBC, "Trump put on steroid recommended for severe Covid-19 cases, even as doctors share upbeat outlook":
President Donald Trumpís doctors said Sunday they had begun treating him with dexamethasone, a steroid that has shown promise for critically ill patients but may cause harm to those with less severe cases of Covid-19.

The revelation, which came as part of an upbeat briefing on the presidentís condition, raised further questions about Trumpís health as the 74-year-old wrestles with the virus that has killed more than 200,000 Americans.

Dr. Nahid Bhadelia, an infectious diseases physician at the Boston University School of Medicine, said the steroid treatment suggests that Trump has a level of inflammation that warrants the use of steroids despite the fact that the drug also suppresses the immune system.

ďThat they made a conscious decision that the benefit of giving steroids outweighs the risk implies a higher degree of severity than what we knew on Friday and Saturday,Ē Bhadelia said in an email.
Is any of this really better than just Vitamin D, C, zinc and hydroxychloroquine?

Trump said in May he had been taking hydroxychloroquine for over a week as a preventative but stopped shortly thereafter.

UPDATE: He looks like he's doing alright:
