Germany to Use Experimental 'Trump Treatment'

Germany becomes the first European Union country to use the same experimental antibody treatment that helped former US President Donald Trump recover from COVID-19.

Minister of Health Jens Spahn said this on Sunday.

"The government has bought 200,000 doses for 400 million euros," Spahn told

Bild am Sonntag


, which amounts to 2000 euros per dose.

The minister describes the drug cocktail as a "passive vaccination".

"Administering these antibodies at an early stage can help patients at risk avoid a more serious disease course."

The German order comes at a time of growing frustration in the EU over a slower-than-expected rollout of vaccines.

Vaccine makers Pfizer / BioNTech and AstraZeneca have both said they will deliver fewer doses to Europe than expected in the short term due to manufacturing issues.

The German government nevertheless expects to be able to give all Germans a vaccine by the end of August.
