The “experts” recommend against Ivermectin for the treatmeant of COVID-19, except in a clinical trial because... it’s “not approved”, not because it doesn’t work. The FDA warns against it in generalities, not because it doesn’t work.
So does Ivermection save people, or not? Dr. Pierre Kory is emphatic that it is a life-saving miracle drug, as per the video and transcript below.
So why don’t we know here in January 2021 when this testimony below is from way back in August 2020? Another 200K dead people while the US government sits around with its collective thumb up its ass.
People are dying in droves, and the best these incompetent parasites at NIH can do is say (in effect) “we’re thinking about working on it”. Now we have a defeatist President saying nothing can be done to change the course of the pandemic. What is the truth here? Why don’t we know? The whole thing reeks of incompetence.
January 14, 2021, NIH.gov: The COVID-19 Treatment Guidelines Panel’s Statement on the Use of Ivermectin for the Treatment of COVID-19
Since the last revision of the Ivermectin section of the Guidelines, results from several randomized clinical trials and retrospective cohort studies of ivermectin use in patients with COVID-19 have been published in peer-reviewed journals or made available as non-peer-reviewed manuscripts. Updates to the Ivermectin section that are underway will include discussion of these studies.
Because many of these studies had significant methodological limitations and incomplete information, the Panel cannot draw definitive conclusions about the clinical efficacy of ivermectin for the treatment of COVID-19.
As such, the Panel has determined that there are insufficient data to recommend either for or against the use of ivermectin for the treatment of COVID-19. Results from adequately powered, well-designed, and well-conducted clinical trials are needed to provide further guidance on the role of ivermectin in the treatment of COVID-19.
Pierre Kory, M.D testimony to Senate
When a doctor who is part of a research group and frontline treatment team gets in front of a Senate committe and begs for something to be done, it really makes me wonder just how incompetent and downright evil Big Pharma and the FDA and the NIH are.
If Dr Kory’s statements have even moderate validity, then the government’s inaction is killing people by the tens of thousands.
Pierre Kory, M.D., Associate Professor of Medicine at St. Luke's Aurora Medical Center, delivers passionate testimony during the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee hearing on "Early Outpatient Treatment: An Essential Part of a COVID-19 Solution, Part II."
"All I ask is for the NIH to review our data that we've compiled of all of the emerging data -- we have almost 30 studies. Every one is reliably and reproducibly positive showing the dramatic impacts of Ivermectin. Please, I'm just asking that they review our manuscript.”
And when I say miracle, I do not use that term lightly, and I don't want to be sensationalized when I say that. That is a scientific recommendation based on mountains of data that has emerged in the last three months.
When I am told...that we are touting things that are not FDA or NIH-recommended, let me be clear. The NIH, their recommendation on Ivermectin, which is to not use it outside of controlled trials, is from August 27th -- we are now in December. This is three to four months later.
Mountains of data have emerged from many centers and countries around the world, showing the miraculous effectiveness of Ivermection. It basically obliterates transmission of this virus. If you take it, you will not get sick.
“In early outpatient treatment, we have three randomized control trials and multiple observation as well as case series showing if you take Ivermectin, the need for hospitalization and death will decrease.
"The most profound evidence we have is in the hospitalized patients. We have four randomized control trials there, multiple observation trials, all showing the same thing, you will not die, or you will die at much, much, much lower rates...It is proving to be a wonder drug.”
Dr. Kory noted that two researchers won the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 2015 for their studies on Ivermectin's efficacy in eradicating parasitic diseases, and now "it is proving to be an immensely powerful anti-viral and anti-inflammatory agent."
We have 100,000 patients in the hospital right now, dying. I'm a lung specialist. I'm an ICU specialist. I've cared for more dying COVID patients than anyone can imagine. They're dying because they can't breathe. They can't breathe...And I watch them every day. They die.
By the time they get to me in ICU, they're already dying, they're almost impossible to recover. Early treatment is key. We need to offload the hospitals. We are tired. I can't keep doing this. If you look at my manuscript, and if I have to go back to work next week, any further deaths are going to be needless deaths, and I cannot be traumatized by that.
I cannot keep caring for patients when I know that they could have been saved with earlier treatment and that drug that will treat them and prevent the hospitalization is Ivermectin.
[elder and minorities] "It's the most -- the most severe discrepancy I have seen in my medical career, and we are responsible to protect those disadvantaged members. We have a special duty to provide counter-measures. The amount of evidence to show that Ivermectin is life-saving and protective is so immense and the drug is so safe...it must be instituted and implemented."
