Lost star Daniel Dae Kim took to Instagram this weekend to let his fans know that he is doing much better after his coronavirus diagnosis. The 51-year-old actor says that the anti-malarial drug hydroxychloroquine – which has been touted by President Donald Trump – was the “secret weapon” to his recovery.
Kim says that after getting the treatment from his doctor, he is “practically back to normal” just days after revealing that he had tested positive for COVID-19. Kim added that the drug was “critical” to his speedy recovery.

“HYDROXYCHLOROQUINE ' AZITHROMYCIN, taken together, have a real chance to be one of the biggest game changers in the history of medicine. The FDA has moved mountains – Thank You!,” Trump tweeted on Saturday. “Hopefully they will BOTH … be put in use IMMEDIATELY. PEOPLE ARE DYING, MOVE FAST, and GOD BLESS EVERYONE!”
In his tweet, the POTUS tagged the official Twitter accounts for the Centers for Disease Control, the Food and Drug Administration, the Department of Homeland Security, and FDA boss Stephen Hahn.
“This would be a gift from heaven, this would be a gift from God if it works,” Trump said at a weekend press conference. “We are going to pray to God that it does work.”
