The treatment of American President Donald Trump during his encounter with Covid-19 was interesting. I cannot comment about the specialist anti-viral drugs he was given but it was notable that he was supplemented with some of the nutrients mentioned in my previous article ‘Diet in the age of Covid-19’.

In particular, the focus on providing him with supplemental zinc and Vitamin D was curious and therefore these nutrients are worth a closer look. One must also assume he obtained adequate amounts of other nutrients as he was staying at an extraordinarily exclusive hospital.
