Nearly two weeks after testing positive for COVID-19, Dr. Ben Carson, U.S. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, believes he’s “out of the woods at this point” and is confident that “together we will be victorious” as “God is still in charge.”

“I have several co-morbidities and after a brief period when I only experienced minor discomfort, the symptoms accelerated and I became desperately ill,” the 69-year-old retired pediatric neurosurgeon shared on his Facebook page Friday.

Carson, a member of the White House coronavirus task force, said President Trump was following his condition and “cleared me for the monoclonal antibody therapy that he had previously received, which I am convinced saved my life.”

Thanks to Trump, “the fabulous White House medical team, and the phenomenal doctors at Walter Reed,” he added, “I do believe I am out of the woods at this point.”

The secretary received the test at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland.

After the president tested positive for the novel coronavirus last month, he received antibody treatments from Regeneron Pharmaceuticals. Contrary to some claims, the drug was not derived from embryonic stem cells.

Regeneron is still awaiting emergency use authorization by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, according to NPR, which also said Eli Lilly’s monoclonal antibody therapy Bamlanivimab received authorization for emergency use last week.
