One dose of ivermectin was all it took to get 81-year-old John Swanson off the ventilator. John’s wife, Sandra, couldn’t believe it. His story is remarkably similar to other cases of patients who were doomed with advanced COVID-19 but were saved by the administration of ivermectin.
Don’t patients have a right?
Ralph Lorigo is the attorney who has now obtained three court orders forcing New York hospitals to administer ivermectin to dying patients. Incredibly, these three hospitals and their lawyers fought the patients, arguing that they had no right to receive the drug even though their doctors had written a valid prescription. Essentially, the argument was that they did not have the right to try a potentially life-saving drug.
In each of the three cases, the New York State Supreme Court justices sided with the patients, and in all three cases, the patients made an almost miraculous recovery after being given ivermectin. In all cases, the patients were on a ventilator in the ICU and could not breathe on their own, and in all cases there was a rapid improvement after the drug was administered, allowing them to breathe on their own.
Judith Smentkiewicz made national headlines in January when her family hired Lorigo after the hospital refused a fourth dose of ivermectin. Smentkiewicz’s son and daughter referred to ivermectin as a “miracle drug” in court documents. Attorney Lorigo and his associate Jon F. Minear reported, “This woman was on a ventilator, literally dying, before she was given this drug. As far as we’re concerned, the judge’s order saved this woman’s life.”
The family of Glenna “Sue” Dickinson happened to see a newspaper article about Judith’s remarkable story and decided to try ivermectin as well.
Sue Dickinson, 65, contracted COVID-19 on Jan. 7, 2021, and her condition progressively worsened and she was admitted to Rochester General Hospital on Jan. 12. Her condition continued to deteriorate and she was placed on a ventilator on Jan. 17. Hospital staff advised that her chances of survival were about 40 percent.
With nothing to lose, Natalie Kingdollar, Dickinson’s daughter, contacted her family doctor, Tom Madejski, who wrote the prescription. The hospital refused to give Sue the ivermectin. Lorigo and Minear’s legal team drafted an affidavit from Dr. Madejski and sought a temporary restraining order. State Supreme Court Justice Frank Caruso ordered the hospital to provide the ivermectin.
Dickinson, as well as Swanson and Smentkiewicz, were taken off the ventilator and also recovered. The family reported on Facebook, “She is making progress every day, and it’s Ivermectin and God that make it possible.” She has since been released from the hospital.
Ivermectin is widely used by doctors
Ivermectin is widely used by physicians, as there are now 51 studies from around the world, 50 of which show a clear benefit and one of which shows a neutral benefit. However, the one study that showed a neutral effect was criticized as flawed in an open letter signed by a group of 120 physicians.
Experts worldwide have called for the global and systematic use of ivermectin to prevent and treat COVID-19. Physicians have recently written about the profit motive of regulatory agencies and Big Pharma blocking cheap, safe and effective treatments like ivermectin and HCQ in favor of experimental and potentially more dangerous and arguably less effective vaccines and drugs like remdesivir. With remdesivir costing $3,100 per dose and failing to reduce deaths, the decision to use ivermectin is a clear one, according to many physicians.
Ivermectin costs about $2 per dose. It is safer than Tylenol or most vitamins, says Dr. Pierre Kory of the FLCCC Alliance, a group of medical specialists who promote access and information through a nonprofit organization. Dr. Kory and Mr. Lorigo have teamed up to help other hospital patients gain access to the life-saving drug.
Dr. Fred Wagshul, a Yale-trained physician, is a lung specialist and directs the Lung Center of America. He is also a founding member of the FLCCC Alliance. Dr. Wagshul notes that the typical dose for hospitalized patients is 0.3 mg ivermectin per kg of body weight for four days, which translates to nine 3-mg tablets daily for four days for a typical 200-pound patient.
Dr. George Fareed, former Harvard professor, advocates combination therapy of ivermectin with HCQ in outpatient cases. For readers among physicians, specific dosages are given in this link.
Information is being censored
The big problem is that information promoting ivermectin is often censored or silenced as quickly as it surfaces. Facebook, Reddit, Change.org, YouTube and others have recently deleted posts about ivermectin on the grounds that they violate “community standards.”
Doctors who use good judgment and scientific studies are considered violators, as are those who post factual reports of healing success with ivermectin. A recent article exposed the connection between big pharma and government regulators who have financial entanglements and massive conflicts of interest. Читай здесь.
The disinformation campaign is evident in the publication of articles that attempt to cast ivermectin in a false light by calling it an “animal dewormer” that may be a “bad idea” for humans. In reality, many drugs are used to treat both humans and animals, including antibiotics, antifungals, and antiparasitics.
Ampicillin, a form of penicillin, has been widely used to treat infections in children such as whooping cough, salmonella and meningitis. In adults, it is routinely used to treat bronchitis, pneumonia, and rheumatic heart disease. It is also regularly used in veterinary medicine to treat calves, cattle, dogs and cats.
Never would you read an article trying to malign ampicillin as a veterinary drug and warn people not to take it. However, we see this propaganda being used daily to try to sway the public against ivermectin, a life-saving drug that has been safely prescribed in billions of doses for parasite infestations over the past 40 years.
Dr. Satoshi Omura received the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 2015 for his discoveries that led to the development of ivermectin. In praising ivermectin and its potential to help with the COVID-19 pandemic, Dr. Omura recently compared ivermectin to penicillin, “one of the greatest discoveries of the twentieth century.” См. pdf в конце сообщения.
Currently, ivermectin is already used to prevent and treat COVID-19 in 25 percent of the world’s countries. In Bangladesh, where ivermectin is used in almost all households, the per capita death rate from COVID-19 is 99% lower than in the United States. Bangladesh, with a population of 160 million, has half the U.S. population. Yet there are only 10,000 COVID-19 deaths there. By comparison, there are nearly 580,000 deaths in our country of 327 million people.
Hospital Advocates and Disinformation Campaigns
However, censorship, corruption, hospital attorneys, and disinformation campaigns have continued to prevent widespread adoption in the United States. Many have never heard of it.
Recently, ivermectin won in court in South Africa after a lengthy legal battle. Ralph Lorigo has now obtained his third injunction in New York Supreme Court. Will legal strategies also be required in the U.S. to obtain FDA approval for ivermectin for the treatment of COVID-19?
Dr. Tess Lawrie has entered this David versus Goliath battle. She is an independent research consultant to WHO, and her work has been used time and again to support international clinical practice guidelines. In other words, she is one of the scientists on whom WHO relies for its recommendations.
She has founded a non-profit organization to promote the global approval and use of ivermectin for COVID-19. With this video, she is asking for support.
We owe it to ourselves as humans to support this work. We owe it to future generations who need medical truth, not corruption, to guide our health policies. We owe it to the principle of basic human rights.
