Believe it or not, there is a very organized effort against using the most effective drug treatment (HCQ, Z-Pak and zinc) for victims of the coronavirus. In the latest example of this, a prominent doctor has been told he’s no longer allowed to prescribe these drugs at his current hospital.
One way of restricting Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) use is for the governor to restrict its use to a “study” in a particular state. This flies in the face of the “Right to Try” law, which allows any American to try an alternative treatment for a disease rather than be limited to only officially approved procedures.
Over 90,000 Americans have died from the coronavirus despite President Trump recommending HCQ and Z-Pak as a safe, effective treatment in a speech on March 19th back when only about 200 Americans had died. Deep State Fauci immediately tried to cut the legs out from under Trump, dismissing earlier studies by Dr. Didier Raoult and Dr. Vladimir Zelenko as “anecdotal.” Fauci should have been on top of all the latest research, but instead, he would not support the one effective treatment (HCQ) and he eventually recommended Remdesivir, which costs 300 times as much and is about half as effective as HCQ with Z-Pak and zinc.
A WorldNetDaily article reports “The infectious-disease specialist who briefed President Trump last month on the safety and effectiveness of hydroxychloroquine will no longer be allowed to prescribe the drug to patients at the New York City-area hospital where he has admitting privileges unless it’s done in a clinical trial.”
“Dr. Stephen M. Smith forwarded to WND an email he received Friday from the leadership of the infectious disease division at Saint Barnabas Medical Center in Livingson, New Jersey. The co-chair of the department, Dr. Lincoln Miller, announced the new policy to physicians, citing the recommendation of the hospital’s Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee.”
“‘I have never heard of a hospital doing something like this,’ Smith told WND late Friday.”
“‘It goes against all my understanding of medical ethics in research,’ said the physician, a graduate of the Yale University School of Medicine and a former research scientist at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases under Dr. Anthony Fauci.”
“‘It’s totally unethical. You are not allowed to steer people into a clinical study,’ Smith added. ‘That is strong-arming people.'”
It’s also unethical for Democrats and Deep State hacks to kill over 90,000 Americans to try to keep the panic going and to keep the economy shut down so that they can use all the resulting economic devastation as a tool to try to defeat Trump in 2020.
Many people think Governor Cuomo’s biggest blunder was sending old folks back to their nursing homes –after getting no treatment or quarantine period, where they quickly spread the disease causing nearly 20,000 deaths. This blunder pales in comparison to NOT giving the Covid 19 victims a five day dose of HCQ, Z-Pack and zinc. Remember when Cuomo refused to use those Navy hospital ships? He was trying to embarrass Trump with that move by saying: Look at Trump doing these unnecessary things. If those old folks had gone through a quarantine period (even a short five day quarantine in a Navy hospital ship) after getting HCQ, they would have been no threat to their old folks home and could have returned safely.
The article continues “WND reached an assistant in Miller’s office who said the infectious-disease section co-chair would respond to a request for comment. But he did not call back by time this story was published. A member of the committee that made the recommendation, Alison Brophy, the assistant director of pharmacy for the hospital, also could not be reached for comment.”
“Smith said he has been under pressure for some time from management at Saint Barnabas to stop prescribing hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin to his patients. But each time he was pressed to stop, they backed away.”
“Now, he said, the hospital is inhibiting the use of a protocol he and many physicians have found to be effective and is backed by controlled studies worldwide, including a French study. Conflicting studies cited by media, he argues, vary widely in dosage and many other factors, making comparisons impossible.”
“‘It’s never happened before,’ he said of the new hospital policy. ‘It’s a bad sign for medicine going forward.'”
“He will continue to administer the protocol to patients at the clinic he directs in East Orange, New Jersey, the Smith Center for Infectious Diseases and Urban Health.”
“In an interview with WND on Wednesday, Smith expressed his frustration with the politicization of the issue and the disconnect between the scientific data on hydroxychloroquine and the statements of scientists, media and politicians who have access to that data.”
