STERLING, Va. (AP) - Housing Secretary Ben Carson is crediting unapproved, experimental treatments with saving his life after saying he became “desperately ill” following his infection with the coronavirus.

There is no medical evidence that the treatments Carson cites in a statement on his personal Facebook page worked.

Carson says in the post that he believes he’s “out of the woods.”

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.
