The FDA tweeted out a bizarre statement telling Americans that they are not horses or cows, in order to discourage Americans from an early treatment that coincidentally is also used for animals in higher doses. “You are not a horse. You are not a cow,” the FDA exclaimed in its fake wisdom. The FDA’s twisted logic is to disparage early treatment any way it can. Meanwhile, it insists on approaches that increase government control through vaccine passports and masks.
Yale Professor Harvey Risch, M.D., observed that “we’ve lost at least 500,000 Americans needlessly who could have been early treated with medicines that we know work [with] at least 85 percent” effectiveness. Two months earlier, ICU and lung specialist Dr. Pierre Kory expressed his hope “that every household has ivermectin in their cupboard.”
Despite the warnings of these doctors, HHS continues to hoard more than 60 million doses of HCQ in its Strategic National Stockpile that were donated by pharmaceutical companies last year for use as early treatment for Covid. Medication loses its efficacy over time, and all those doses could be thrown out.
The proper response to the FDA’s sarcastic tweet about cows is that it approved ivermectin (and HCQ) long ago as a safe medication, and cannot properly interfere with its use now. The FDA has no authority to practice medicine, and physicians have always been authorized to prescribe approved medications for “off-label” uses, such as treating Covid. If early treatment for Covid were not blocked, then vaccine passports and the masking of schoolchildren could become unnecessary. Covid could then be treated just as other viruses are, without panic or fear.
Americans are smarter than the FDA, and would take HCQ, ivermectin, and other early treatments in safe doses. It is only because hospitals now control most physicians that patients are left to fend for themselves, resorting to buying ivermectin prepared for animals. More than a year into the Covid pandemic, public health authorities should be promoting early treatment to keep people out of hospital ICUs. The symptoms of the virus are familiar now, and everyone – vaccinated or not – should have access to immediate, effective treatment to overcome it.
