Did Rudy Giuliani ignore Covid-19 symptoms? Trump attorney in video says he might have had signs for a few days
Giuliani said, 'I probably did have symptoms for a few days, I was traveling, I was traveling very fast and going to one state after another testifying at the hearings concerning the election'
Rudy Giuliani, recently, in a video talked about getting Covid-19 and how he dealt with it. The Daily Mail reported that the 76-year-old was released from Georgetown University hospital on Wednesday, December 9. He received the experimental drug Remdesivir and was treated in part by Dr Sean Conley, the physician to the president.
In the video, at one point, he requested Americans to be diagnosed as early as possible if they start to show symptoms. He said, “I’m not going to say I passed that test completely. A couple of times I did because a couple of times I was exposed and immediately, within one day, I went for a test reported my symptoms to a doctor.” He continued, “But this time though, I had symptoms, I probably did have symptoms for a few days, I was traveling, I was traveling very fast and going to one state after another testifying at the hearings concerning the election.”
Giuliani said, “I had gone in 5 days to 4 states - Pennsylvania, to Michigan, to Arizona and to Georgia - and about five to six hearings in that period of time, preparing witnesses.” He said by the middle of last week he was feeling tired but went on with his work until he was told he looked pale while doing his radio show.
On the insistence of his son Andrew and the doctors, he went to the hospital where it was found that he had low blood oxygen. He said, “When I got admitted, I had shortness of breath, fever, mild cough.” The attorney shared that his X-rays showed he had pneumonia. He was placed on oxygen before taking four days of Remdesivir and one day of a monoclonal antibody treatment manufactured by Regeneron.
He also said, “I recovered the doctor thought it was almost miraculous how fast I recovered. From the first day to the second day there was a remarkable recovery. By the third day, I was just about fully recovered and on the fourth day, I was able to leave. Now it's the end of the fifth day and I feel 100%.” But he also still needs to ‘expand’ his breathing by using a machine, which he demonstrated by telling his viewers “you may have to use it someday”. He said, “It helps a lot, I've tripled my ability with that. It makes me feel very good. I probably have more energy now than I did before I went in and I’m very thankful for the care.”
The Daily Mail notes, only about 200,000 doses of the experimental antibody treatment have been available to US hospitals, according to Health and Human Services Department data. The POTUS, former New Jersey Governor and Trump aide Chris Christie and Health and Human Services Secretary Ben Carson were also treated with the emergency antibody treatments after contracting Covid-19. This has raised some questions about why Trump and his aides are getting easy access to the treatment that’s not easily available to the public.
At one point in the video, he also said, “I quarantined in the sense that stayed in a lot. I don’t go to restaurants and I didn’t go flying around all over the place but I also didn’t stay in a basement and lock myself out of life for the past eight months. If I did, I don’t know what I would have done to myself and I see the damage that has been done to this country.”
