Interesting podcast from lawyer who sued hospital on behalf of 80-yr old COVID patient - Ivermectin

I just stumbled across this podcast with the lawyer who sued on behalf of the family whose 80-year old mother was in the ICU with COVID, given a 20% chance of living. Family wanted doctors to administer Ivermectin but the hospital refused after initial dosage (after which she improved enough to be taken off ventilator but started going downhill when her second dose was refused).

Very interesting insider details on the timeline of events. The lawyer also mentions another patient who family had to sue to get Ivermectin prescribed. In this case the hospital called the husband in as the patient was dying and wasn't expected to live. Finally got the Ivermectin administered and the patient stabilized within a few hours.

Here's what I don't understand. Ivermectin isn't something new. It's been used in humans for over 30 years. It's routinely used "off label" for scabies treatment. Why not allow "off label" use for COVID?

"MAGAt" not happy about mask mandate

I have to admit, I didn’t realize this was satire until the very end. (This guy is Canadian, does comedy)

Anyone been following Ivermectin use against COVID?

Ivermectin has shown some promise as having a powerful antiviral effect on COVID. I heard about Ivermectin v COVID a few weeks ago but wrote it off as the new hydroxychloroquine “miracle” hype. However, new data has come out which is showing this anti-parasite drug might actually be effective.

The FLCCC has added it to their COVID protocol (the FLCCC rules hydroxychloroquine as NOT effective BTW).

Hope it’s ok to post this info. I don’t take it as quack science based on the new information coming out. This drug has been used in humans across the world for over 30 years so the safety data is known. Not without some side effects but overall very safe.

I dunno...interesting..
