Doubling down on the Roundtable topics

In response to Barry,
I know you are a smart guy. Why would you look to Time Magazine or The Atlantic, or organizations like Factcheck.org, funded by domestic terrorist Bill Ayers and the Annenberg Foundation, to “discredit” frontline professionals and leaders in their fields?
As for the Cochran report you cited, I know of another report that came to the same conclusion and many doctors signed a letter condemning the results because they used patients who were 30 years old; so of course there would be little difference using Ivermectin compared to seniors with comorbidities.
And before you listen to the subjective opinion of a 24-year-old fact checker from a left leaning organization who likely believes men can have babies, please note that this additional information below is found in the National Center for Biomedical and Genomic Information, as well as the National Institute of Health and the National Library of Medicine. We don’t need to be concerned that some 24-year-old “fact-checker” “discredits” these respected leaders in their fields or their organizations.
The mission of The National Center for Biotechnology Information is to “advance science and health by providing access to biomedical and genomic information.”
Back to the point of the Roundtable discussion of last week’s paper. I offer you another example of Dr. Kory’s work and research, a peer-reviewed narrative review of Ivermectin, which ranks #38 out of 18 million publications.
After treating thousands of his own patients and looking at studies conducted in at least 15 countries (Brazil, Egypt, Argentina, Bangladesh, India, Peru, Florida, Iraq, France, Africa, Dominican Republic, Mexico, Pakistan, Paraguay), he concludes, “Finally, the many examples of Ivermectin distribution campaigns leading to rapid population-wide decreases in morbidity and mortality reduction indicate that an oral agent effective in all phases of COVID-19 has been identified.”
Five doctors compiled and wrote the “Review of the Emerging Evidence Demonstrating the Efficacy of Ivermectin in the Prophylaxis and Treatment of COVID-19” They are: Pierre Kory, MD,Gianfranco Umberto Meduri, MD, Joseph Varon, MD, Jose Iglesias, DO, and Paul E. Marik, MD.
Here’s the link: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC8088823/.
These are quotes directly from the report, “Currently, as of Dec. 14, 2020, there is accumulating evidence that demonstrates both the safety and efficacy of Ivermectin in the prevention and treatment of COVID-19. Large-scale epidemiologic analyses validate the findings of in vitro, animal, prophylaxis, and clinical studies. Epidemiologic data from regions of the world with widespread Ivermectin use have demonstrated a temporally associated reduction in case counts, hospitalizations, and fatality rates.
“In summary, based on the totality of the trials and epidemiologic evidence presented in this review along with the preliminary findings of the Unitaid/WHO meta-analysis of treatment RCTs and the guideline recommendation from the international BIRD conference, Ivermectin should be globally and systematically deployed in the prevention and treatment of COVID-19.”
India is mentioned in his report, but I wanted to go further in depth because it is an amazing testimony to early detection, testing and prophylactic treatment. Normally results like these would be global news.
The government of India’s largest state, Uttar Pradesh, with 230 million people (only 5% were vaccinated) decided to aggressively fight COVID-19.
On May 7, 2021, during the peak of India's Delta Surge, the World Health Organization reported, "Uttar Pradesh (is) going the last mile to stop COVID-19."
Government teams went house-to-house to test and treat with medicine kits. No one announced what was in the kits, apparently on purpose. The World Health Organization (WHO) reported in the above article “government teams are moving across 97,941 villages in 75 districts over five days in this activity which began May 5 in India's most populous state with a population of 230 million.
"Each monitoring team has two members who visit homes in villages and remote hamlets to test everyone with symptoms of COVID-19 using Rapid Antigen Test kits. Those who test positive are quickly isolated and given a medicine kit with advice on disease management."
The WHO later reported about the Rapid Response Teams, “RRTs are a key component of a larger emergency response strategy that is essential for an efficient and effective response…WHO has produced and published this course for RRTs working at the national, sub-national, district, and sub-district levels to strengthen the pandemic response with support from the National Center for Disease Control, Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, Government of India, and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.”
The Rapid Response Teams derive support from the United States CDC under the umbrella of the WHO. This fact further validates the Uttar Pradesh test and treat program and solidifies this as a joint effort by the WHO and CDC.
After five weeks, new cases had dropped from 310,783 to 8,986, an amazing 97.1%, and the Uttar Pradesh Rapid Response Team program with their secret medical kits was a proven success.
After an additional three weeks, by July 2, 2021, cases were down a full 99%.
On Aug. 6, 2021,the use of Ivermectin was revealed when MSN acknowledged what was contained in those Uttar Pradesh medicine kits. Each home kit contained the following: Tylenol, Vit. C, Multivitamin, Zinc, Vit. D3, Ivermectin 12 mg [quantity #10 tablets], Doxycycline 100 mg [quantity #10 tablets], face masks, sanitizer, gloves, alcohol wipes, a digital thermometer, and a pulse oximeter.
The World Health Organization praised the effort, yet omitted the use of Ivermectin, likely to avoid backlash (?), which was why the contents of the kits were kept secret in the first place.
The most populated Indian state embraced Ivermectin as a COVID-19 therapy and prophylactic while no Western press bothered to touch the subject. More recently, Ivermectin has been included in the India national COVID-19 guidance due in part to positive outcomes now emerging. Again, there hasn’t been any interest from the West, even though India has been far more successful than the U.K. or the U.S.
On Aug. 25, 2021, the Indian media noticed the discrepancy between Uttar Pradesh's massive success and other states, like Kerala's, comparative failure. Although Uttar Pradesh was only 5% vaccinated to Kerala's 20%, Uttar Pradesh had (only) 22 new COVID cases, while Kerala was overwhelmed with 31,445 in one day. So it became apparent that whatever was contained in those treatment kits must have been pretty effective.
By Sept. 12, 2021, Livemint reported that 34 districts were declared COVID-free or had no active cases. Only 14 new cases were recorded in the entire state of Uttar Pradesh.
Also of note, there have been no adverse reaction reports of any toxicity from those ten 12 mg pills of Ivermectin – in the entire state of over 200 million. According to a Dr. Campbell who has followed it closely, there was not one poisoning reported. No Indian poison control articles or telephone calls were reported. Out of millions of distributed medicine kits, each containing 120 mg of Ivermectin, not one person in Uttar Pradesh was reported to have had a problem with the drug.
According to Dr. Campbell, the entire kit cost the Indian government $2.65 each. Think of the difference between that and the billions of dollars that has been given to these pharmaceutical companies of our tax dollars to have them turn around and sell us what they created. And as far as I know, we still don’t exactly know what those vaccine ingredients include that we are injecting into our bodies. Yet Ivermectin has proven safe, inexpensive and effective for decades. Billions (yes with a “B”) of people have taken it for various viruses, parasites and diseases with little or no side effects.
Consider Remdesivir, which runs over $3,000, and unlike Ivermectin which can be given before you get sick or as soon as you have symptoms, Remdesivir is given late in the disease during hospitalization.
So, while big pharma, regulators and the media fight so hard against Ivermectin, referring to it as a “horse paste” and trying to discredit what incredibly intelligent and courageous doctors are reporting from the front lines, interest in Ivermectin is skyrocketing, for good reason. Sometimes the old ways are better – and cheaper.
