President Trump announced Sunday that he expects emergency authorization for the antibody treatment he believes is the "cure" to coronavirus will be coming "very soon."

Trump said Regeneron's experimental mix of monoclonal antibodies that was prescribed to him during his recent hospitalization for COVID-19 was a "miracle."

"I know people call it a therapeutic, but to me it's a cure," Trump told Fox News' Maria Bartiromo."We're going to be delivering that to hospitals all over the country — and ultimately all over the world — because it's, it's incredible."

The president said that once the Regeneron treatment was widely available, "We'll clean out the hospitals."

Trump expressed confidence that he would have done just fine without the treatment because he is so healthy, but added "who wants to take a chance?"
