Surge Summary: The proof is in: Hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin – inexpensive and available if pharmacies will do their job – successfully treats COVID-19. Most people need not die or be hospitalized due to the virus. Political and profit concerns, however, are standing in the way.

By  Don Boys 

Federal and state health officials tell us emphatically that everyone must have COVID shots for the safety of everyone. However, no one has proved that necessity. If there were qualified people with no motive for financial gain or the stroking of egos taking that position, those health officials would have more credibility. Additionally, they would be declaring hundreds of private physicians wrong.

I seem to remember something about “first do no harm.” Moreover, the common, safe, inexpensive treatment for COVID is saving lives, not causing harm. Political physicians muddy the water by saying people have died from an overdose of one of the therapeutic COVID treatments; however, people have also overdosed on water, aspirin, Tylenol, etc.

Furthermore, one of the conditions for an Emergency Use Authorization  (EUA) is there must be no approved therapeutic available for the disease. Ahh, so there is the rub because hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) and ivermectin are now available and saving COVID sufferers as they have been used for decades to cure other diseases.  However, by using the available, inexpensive, already approved drug that works well for COVID-19 would make the EUA vaccines illegal (as well as being harmful).

Can’t have that. Gotta sell vaccines and save reputations.

Many famous medical experts tell us that the COVID-19 vaccines are unnecessary since long-time common drugs are very effective for those infected with the Chinese Communist coronavirus. Wait a minute; does that mean millions of people have died unnecessarily? And millions more did not have to spend weeks and months hospitalized, suffering enormous pain and disability?

Well, hundreds of private physicians say yes while political physicians say no. It should be remembered the private physicians have treated hundreds of COVID patients successfully with common drugs, and government health officials have treated none.

America’s Frontline Doctors allege in their suit against the state of Alabama, “The Vaccine manufacturers could not obtain the Emergency Use Authorization for a COVID-19 vaccine if there was an effective alternative treatment. So, they had to rig false studies to purport that hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) was not an effective alternative treatment.”

HCQ has been used millions of times in America since 1934 with no serious problems; however, it is now a generic drug, so there is little money for Big Pharma. But there is gold and glory in experimental COVID-19 vaccines.

In a revolting turn of events, the two most prestigious medical journals—Lancet and The New England Journal of Medicine—were forced to retract fabricated articles, meaning they were fake, false, and even fraudulent. The two articles were written using the same Surgisphere information to prove how dangerous hydroxychloroquine is—not for malaria, lupus, or arthritis but for COVID! Wow, that’s big news and shows how dishonest, desperate, or depraved some medical officials are.

The articles were not retracted for a few mistakes but for being totally wrong: a hit piece valued by the pharmaceutical companies. The Guardian exposed the hoax with a heading: “Surgisphere: governments and WHO changed Covid-19 policy based on suspect data from tiny US company.”

The Guardian’s lead paragraph was stunning: “The World Health Organization and a number of national governments have changed their Covid-19 policies and treatments on the basis of flawed data from a little-known US healthcare analytics company, also calling into question the integrity of key studies published in some of the world’s most prestigious medical journals.”

The devastating article revealed that the tiny Surgisphere company had a science fiction writer (not a scientist) and an adult model on staff. The study allegedly included data from more than a thousand hospitals as a basis for the non-study.

Both magazines played cute with their retraction making excuses for their complicity without revealing the fraud. The magazines wrote of not verifying some of the material. However, that was an obvious ploy. They published the original study because it was in the best interest of Big Pharma to denounce, denigrate, and destroy HCQ as a quick, easy, inexpensive treatment for COVID-19.

The political physicians charged failure in HCQ trials to derail, distort, and destroy any evidence to support the validity of inexpensive, effective home treatments. One study, designed to fail, gave lethal amounts of HCQ to study participants, reported the deaths and hid their clandestine deceit to rig the study. Sounds like premeditated murder to me.

Many physicians (some famous), have used this drug successfully with hundreds of COVID-19 patients without losing a single patient!

Renowned epidemiologist Dr. Didier Raoult, leader of a French research team, administered hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) and azithromycin to 80 patients and observed improvement in EVERY CASE except for a very sick 86-year-old with an advanced form of coronavirus infection. Raoult added, “When this inexpensive oral medication is given very early in the course of illness, before the virus has had time to multiply beyond control, it has shown to be highly effective, especially when given in combination with the antibiotics azithromycin or doxycycline and the nutritional supplement zinc.”

Dr. Raoult referred to his article in the American Journal of Epidemiology (AJE): “Since publication of my May 27 article, seven more studies have demonstrated similar benefit. In a lengthy follow-up letter, also published by AJE, I discuss these seven studies and renew my call for the immediate early use of hydroxychloroquine in high-risk patients. These seven studies include: an additional 400 high-risk patients treated by Dr. Vladimir Zelenko, with zero deaths; four studies totaling almost 500 high-risk patients treated in nursing homes and clinics across the U.S., with no deaths; a controlled trial of more than 700 high-risk patients in Brazil, with significantly reduced risk of hospitalization and two deaths among 334 patients treated with hydroxychloroquine; and another study of 398 matched patients in France, also with significantly reduced hospitalization risk. Since my letter was published, even more doctors have reported to me their completely successful use.

“In the future, I believe this misbegotten episode regarding hydroxychloroquine will be studied by sociologists of medicine as a classic example of how extra-scientific factors overrode clear-cut medical evidence. But for now, reality demands a clear, scientific eye on the evidence and where it points. For the sake of high-risk patients, for the sake of our parents and grandparents, for the sake of the unemployed, for our economy and for our polity, especially those disproportionally affected, we must start treating immediately.”

How could any sane person not be impressed with such results from one of the world’s most qualified medical experts with vast experience dealing with COVID?

Ivermectin is also having remarkable success in treating COVID patients as a cure and a prophylactic. It is safer than Tylenol and has been dispensed about 4 billion times, killing threadworm (infection with a type of roundworm that enters the body through the skin and lives in the intestines) and curing other diseases.  Additionally, it is 86% effective as a prophylactic for COVID-19. Because it is used for other diseases is no reason not to use it to save COVID-infected people.  

Satoshi Ōmura and William C. Campbell were awarded the Nobel Prize for discovering ivermectin in 2015.

Ivermectin works. I’ve seen that in my patients. Ivermectin can really be the game-changer against COVID-19. It’s safe, it’s cheap, and it works,” declared Dr. Alessandro Santin of the Yale School of Medicine.  

Yale, you know, the little school in New Haven.

Paul Marik, M.D., Chief of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine, Eastern Virginia Medical School, asserted, “Ivermectin for COVID-19 is effective and has been given to us on a silver platter. It can completely change the history of this disease. Ivermectin is one of the safest medicines you can give a human being. It has been in use for 40 years and is on WHO’s list of essential medications.”    

Many countries are now using ivermectin against COVID-19; fifteen of them country-wide with official endorsement according to the British Ivermectin Recommendation Development (BIRD) panel, March 25, 2021. Yet, U.S. health officials ridicule ivermectin as a “horse dewormer” as they seek to hawk their hastily produced experimental vaccines. Interestingly, over 100 members of Congress treated Covid 19 with ivermectin!

I have always thought most of Congress needed deworming, but I never expected it to happen. It’s also interesting that they have no trouble getting the drug, and you and I must almost bully our way to the prescription counter to get it.

A surprisingly supportive article in the July/August 2021 issue of the American Journal of Therapeutics overwhelming supported ivermectin as a treatment for COVID.  The study concluded, “Using ivermectin early in the clinical course may reduce numbers progressing to severe disease. The apparent safety and low cost suggest that ivermectin is likely to have a significant impact on the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic globally.”

So, two groups of highly trained professionals, allegedly dedicated public servants, are telling opposite stories about the same issue. Whom do you believe? I tend to believe those who have the most to lose if they are wrong, and I look suspiciously at those who have much to gain. While that is not a perfect formula to follow, it is close to perfect in an imperfect, selfish, egotistical world.

I believe the independent physicians who have everything to lose rather than political physicians who have everything to gain by pushing the quick and expensive vaccines.

You have one vote, and it is your life that’s in the balance.
