Lost actor Daniel Dae Kim has claimed that an antimalarial drug has left him feeling better after being diagnosed with coronavirus.
The Hawaii native was able to confirm he had contracted the bug by using a coronavirus test kit – which he says he will not use again due to the shortage of testing materials.
The age-defying star, 51, whose only symptom was congestion, took to Instagram to share his story on battling the virus on Saturday night.
Hawaii 5-0’s Daniel explained that he was given a “drug cocktail” by his physician – which included antimalarial drug Hydroxychloroquine, which he says was “crucial” in battling the bug.
The list of medicines he took consisted of the antiviral medicine TamiFlu, the antibiotic Azithromycin, a Glycopyrrolate inhaler alongside Hydroxychloroquine.
Daniel was careful to remind his fans that he is not a medical professional and added that he believed his recovery was so strong because he started the prescription before he got a high fever.
