Withholding medicines during a pandemic is criminal, genocidal behaviour

Sydney gastroenterologist Prof. Borody (above) and Prof. Harvey Risch of Harvard (below) both support deployment of therapeutic drugs to treat COVID-19.

WILL Scott Morrison’s vaccine-pushing super bureaucrat Jane Halton of the COVID-19 Coordination Commission be furiously pulling strings for her real boss Bill Gates to stop the latest very effective and safe COVID-19 treatment – Ivermectin?

Worldwide, Trump haters and scamdemic perpetrators have been putting up blocks and cooking up dodgy studies to stop therapeutics like hydroxychloroquine being used instead of the grotesque DNA-meddling vaccine they want us all to submit to.

Halton is a key player in the so-called “global health” network that has been working on a “pandemic responses” since at least 2010 when the Rockefeller Foundation published a major report floating scenarios to drive its globalisation efforts. Last year Halton was prominent at Event 201, the last of the game-planning events before the predicted pandemic.

And yes, you heard it right. Ivermectin, the popular parasite dose for livestock, is a “sure-fire COVID-19 killer” – at least the human version of it. So says Sydney gastroenterologist and professor, Thomas Borody, speaking to Chris Kenny on SkyTV. The professor called on the governments to ramp up and mobilise the anti-parasitical drug for treatment of nursing home patients and others in Melbourne.

And why wouldn’t any decent specialist in medical science – or any decent doctor for that matter – do such a thing when the need is so obvious.

Reasonable, thinking people would know that withholding readily available medicines from sick people is a crime against humanity – genocide even on a large scale. Prime Minister Scott Morrison and Premier “Dictator Dan” Andrews of Victoria can be rightfully accused of this crime unless they act right now to make common medicines available to treat COVID-19 patients across Australia.

The PM and the premier and/or their advisers and Ms Halton and others on the PM’s COVID-19 Coordination Commission should be asking themselves why any government – unless it were some sort of dictatorship exacting revenge on some group of people – actively restrict a medicine to treat a disease among its own constituents and allow them to die?

Oh, that’s right, we momentarily forgot, the state of Victoria is currently a dictatorship, a police state that has placed its people under house arrest. Victorians are all guilty, apparently, of being potential “spreaders” of the deadly COVID-19. But don’t talk about treatments.

That aside, restricting a medicine to a suffering sector of elderly Australians in nursing homes is exactly what has happened as hydroxychloroquine, a widely used treatment for COVID-19, has been severely restricted by the Australian TGA and the health departments of both Victoria and Queensland, where a $13,000 fine is imposed for unauthorized prescribing of HCQ.

Let’s underline the gravity and scandal of this situation. Hundreds of people are infected and sick with COVID-19 across Australia and both state and federal governments are withholding at least one widely used and readily available medicine that can treat it and reduce death rates.

The other medicine is Budesonide, the common, generic steroidal inhalant used to treat asthma. It was used recently by a Texas doctor Richard Bartlett to cure a dozen patients of COVID symptoms. The doctor has called it a “silver bullet treatment”. The medicine is also used in Asian nations for this purpose and has several studies to back it up as a COVID-19 treatment.

But surely there’s got to be good science behind any move to repurpose these medicines, you might ask? In the case of these three medicines, it’s actually not valid to argue that repurposing them for COVID-19 can only be justified by the “gold standard randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trials”, as pointed out by Harvard epidemiology professor Harvey A. Risch, who supports the immediate mobilization of hydroxychloroquine.

Risch has no illusions about the primary reasons for the suppression of HCQ – politics and in particular the fact that President Trump endorsed and took hydroxychloroquine himself. A bunch of Risch’s Harvard colleagues published an open letter distancing themselves from his stand. The mob is always right, apparently.

The case of Ivermectin arose in May this year. NewsMax reported on May 22 that “multiple trials in the United States and abroad indicate a drug already approved by the FDA to treat parasitic infections is showing “astounding” results, and could represent a breakthrough in efforts to vanquishing the SARS-CoV-2 virus at the heart of the global pandemic.

“Doctors have administered the drug ivermectin in several simultaneous trials in several countries sometimes in combination with other common medications. Physicians who participated in the study report that patients’ viral loads began declining almost immediately after they began administering ivermectin, a widely available prescription drug approved to combat parasites, scabies and head lice,” NewsMax reported.

Anyone who has followed the news on these drugs as potential and actual treatments for COVID-19 will know that government health departments and drug approval agencies have obstructed the use of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) while the media chimed in across the board against it.

Scott Morrison, the premiers and his health ministers could reverse scandal tomorrow by declaring any of these medicines an emergency treatment for pandemic cases. It makes absolute sense, even without large-scale trials because doctors worldwide attest to its effectiveness.

And as pointed out by Los Angeles ER doctor Simone Gold, HCQ is available across the counter in much of Africa, South America, and the Middle East including Iran. Dr Gold’s outspoken campaigning for hydroxychloroquine use resulted in her hospital employer sacking her. Such is the cost of truth in this day and age of corporatist deception.
