The Epoch Times: India Won’t Add Merck’s COVID-19 Pill to National Treatment Protocol, Citing Safety Concerns

re: COVID
re: ethics in medicine

Isn’t “markedly less effective than previously thought” a huge red flag?

Big Pharma surely sees the risk of vaporizing profits from the vaccines, now that the pandemic is just about over what with most people having or soon to have natural immunity. So they’ll push anything short of Ivermectin. Together with their lackeys at the FDA, it’s just a question of “investment”.

The Epoch Times: India Won’t Add Merck’s COVID-19 Pill to National Treatment Protocol, Citing Safety Concerns

2022-01-06 by Katabella Roberts. Emphasis added.

India’s top health research body announced on Wednesday that it won’t be adding Merck’s COVID-19 antiviral pill molnupiravir to its national treatment protocol, citing concerns over its safety.

The state-run Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) said it had become aware of “major safety concerns” that prompted the decision, despite India’s drug regulator in December approving the drug for emergency use.

It comes after France in December also canceled its order for the drug, developed by Merck and Ridgeback Biotherapeutics, following disappointing trial data suggesting its drug was markedly less effective than previously thought.

Molnupiravir has major safety concerns including teratogenicity, mutagenicity, muscle and bone damage. If this drug is given, contraception must be done for three months as the child may have problems,” ICMR Director-General Balram Bhargava told local media on Wednesday...

...the drug causes teratogenicity, or the ability to cause defects in a developing fetus, mutagenicity, or permanent transmissible changes in the structure of genetic material of cells, cartilage damage, and can also be damaging to muscles...

...contraception would also have to be given to individuals who take the drug—regardless of whether they are male or female— because “the child born could be problematic with teratogenic influences.”

...

WIND: maybe molnupiravir works well? If it doesn’t kill you or maim your children. OMG.
