Carson says he’s ‘out of the woods’ after battling COVID-19

STERLING, Va. (AP) — Housing Secretary Ben Carson announced Friday that he’s “out of the woods” after contracting COVID-19 earlier this month.

Carson credited unapproved, experimental treatments with saving his life after saying he became “desperately ill” with the coronavirus. There is no medical evidence that the treatments Carson cited in a statement on his personal Facebook page worked.

Most people recover from COVID-19. The disease has killed more than 250,000 Americans and sickened nearly 12 million, including President Donald Trump and members of his family.
