US President Donald Trump on Friday said he and his wife Melania had tested positive for Covid-19.

It is said that he was given an experimental treatment designed to combat the virus as well as a small array of treatments including aspirin and Vitamin D.

As reported by Indian Express, One of the most anticipated classes of experimental Covid-19 drugs is monoclonal antibodies: manufactured copies of human antibodies to the virus. The injected antibodies are designed to begin fighting the virus immediately and are being developed to prevent and treat Covid-19. The technique is already in wide use for treating a range of illnesses.

Trump is taking several medicines including Immune system booster such as Vitamin D and mineral zinc

Heartburn drug famotidine which has not been proven to work against Covid-19, but researchers are studying it as a potential treatment.

Melatonin, often taken as a sleep aid. Aspirin, which Trump previously has said he takes daily.

Also, he would be given extra oxygen or fluids if needed. Supportive care would depend on symptoms, things such as cough syrup or fever-reducing drugs.
