Fox Business host Neil Cavuto revealed that he had almost died after a five-week battle with COVID-19.
Cavuto had been mysteriously absent for over a month, and many viewers were left in the dark about what was happening. Now it turned out that Cavuto was enduring a nightmarish battle against Covid-19 that almost cost him his life.
Cavuto, who is 63 years old and immunocompromised, told viewers, “I did get COVID again — but a far, far more serious strand, what doctors call ‘COVID pneumonia. It landed me in intensive care for quite a while and it really was touch-and-go. Some of you who’ve wanted to put me out of my misery darn near got what you wished for, Sorry to disappoint you.”
Cavuto was already vulnerable to the worst effects of Covid-19, and even vaccination could do little to help prevent infection.
Cavuto explained that “Because I’ve had cancer and right now I have multiple sclerosis, I’m among the vulnerable 3 percent or so of the population that cannot sustain the full benefits of a vaccine.”
Thankfully, Cavuto made a full recovery and will hopefully avoid a serious infection in the future, but his case illustrates the importance of advancing therapeutic treatments for Covid-19.
The much-lauded vaccine that the Biden administration has poured all their resources into is not a silver bullet to either preventing infections or curing infections.
Americans like Neil Cavuto, who are seriously Immuno-compromised, are at grave risk of serious infection even with the vaccine. Those Americans need treatment options, and so far, the Biden administration has been far from helpful in that area.
Cavuto continued explaining that “This was scary. How scary? I’m talking ‘Ponderosa suddenly out of the prime rib in the middle of the buffet line’ scary.” How many more Americans have found themselves in Cavuto’s position that weren’t so lucky.
Focus on treatment
The Biden administration must shift gears from crusading to get Americans vaccinated and instead should be pushing for more effective and cheaper treatment options.
No amount of campaigning from the Biden administration and other Democrats will change anyone’s mind on the vaccine. The responsible thing to do is to work for Americans like Cavuto who aren’t going to be able to rely on their natural immune system or the vaccine.
Thankfully Neil Cavuto has recovered and will continue to work at Fox News, and that alone is worth celebrating.
