Pfizer Creates New Version of Ivermectin to Save the World

leave a comment »

The “I” word. That word that makes Fauci, Democrats, and pharmaceutical executives fume and raise their fists in defiant opposition. It made them so angry they created a campaign to discredit it and ban it. It made them so mad they asked their pals in the legacy media to call it horse and cow dewormer and mock anyone who said it should be considered as an effective early treatment for Covid-19.

Ivermectin. A medication used to treat parasite infestations. In humans, these include head lice, scabies, river blindness, strongyloidiasis, trichuriasis, ascariasis, and lymphatic filariasis. In veterinary medicine, the medication is used to prevent and treat heartworm and acariasis, among other indications.

Yet thousands of physicians, nurses, medical researchers, and other health care professionals discovered it provided amazing benefits to covid patients at all stage of the illness. These people were quickly shut down, threatened, mocked, and attacked by the legacy news media and the trolls of social media.

Dr. John Campbell PhD, trains nurses and develops open learning resources for nurses and health care professionals. He broke down the hard core science behind the Pfizer pill and Ivermectin and provided a clear and easy to understand comparison which shows Ivermectin to be KING and the new Pfizer pill to be a functional copy of Ivermectin. In other words the two “act” and work in the body in the same way. Ivermectin just does a better job of it.

That won’t stop Joe Biden and Anthony Fauci and the CDC and their water boys at the legacy media from continuing to carry their disinformation and misinformation about Ivermectin to the eyes and ears of the public so they can convince them their NEW PILL is the answer to the pandemic. Of course their new pill will cost 10 times or more what Ivermectin does.

Here’s the goods:

Bottom line: Ivermectin WORKS. Pfizer knows it. Moderna knows it. Merc knows it. Joe Biden, Tony Fauci, and the Democrats know it. They’ve known it since the beginning. They intentionally lied about it and spread disinformation using their pets in the legacy media. They pilloried anyone who tried to tell the truth. They got the top dogs at the AMA and all the medical societies to go along and put the hammer down on any physicians, nurses, or other medical professionals who even questioned their mandates.

It boggles the mind how effective the propaganda and coercion has been and how many Americans STILL believe the fools running the show.

India’s Ivermectin Blackout – Part IV Kerala’s Vaccinated Surge

leave a comment »

Part IV in a series of articles regarding the use of Ivermectin in India

Authored by Dr. Justus R. Hope, writer’s pseudonym, graduated summa cum laude from Wabash College where he was named a Lilly Scholar. He attended Baylor College of Medicine where he was awarded the M.D. degree. He completed a residency in Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation at The University of California Irvine Medical Center. He is board-certified and has taught at The University of California Davis Medical Center in the departments of Family Practice and Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation.

Ivermectin or No Ivermectin

“Kerala is in the national spotlight once again, with the state accounting for 68% of 46,265 new COVID-19 cases in India.” The Times of India published this on August 27, 2021.

https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/city/kochi/experts-cite-multiple-factors-for-covid-19-surge-in-kerala/articleshow/85675285.cms7

Kerala, the tiny state on India’s southwest coast, is the one hotspot of COVID remaining in India. Kerala led India on August 25, 2021, with 31,445 of its 46,265 new infections. With no Ivermectin use, Kerala has some 34 million people, making their infection rate nearly one in one thousand. This rate is far higher than Uttar Pradesh, India, at closer to one in eight million, where Ivermectin is widely used.

However, Kerala’s high infection rate is right up there with the United States, averaging about 150,000 new cases per day or about one in two thousand per population.

The Times of India confirmed Kerala’s lack of contact tracing. Furthermore, they confirmed that the vaccines did not help prevent transmission, and they demonstrated that the test positivity rate dramatically increased – after August 5 – when Ivermectin was dropped from the protocol.

Juan Chamie, the Cambridge-based data analyst, was quoted in Part III of our series -The Lesson of Kerala:

“If you look at the test positivity rate (TPR) of Kerala, it declined from over 25% to 10% and remained stable around it. Since the last protocol change that removed Ivermectin, the positivity rate is increasing. In less than two weeks, the positivity rate jumped and right now is above 15%, the highest in the last two months.”

https://www.thedesertreview.com/opinion/columnists/indias-ivermectin-blackout—part-iii-the-lesson-of-kerala/article_ccecb97e-044e-11ec-9112-2b31ae87887a.html

Now we see their TPR has increased to 17.3%, far greater than anywhere else in India, and this increase begs an explanation. As discussed in this series, there has been a United States media blackout on India’s overall conquest of COVID-19, particularly avoidance of any discussion about Ivermectin’s role.

We pointed this fact out in Part III of our series. The lesson learned there was that Ivermectin could make up for low vaccination rates, but vaccination, unfortunately, cannot make up for low Ivermectin use.

Now we hear grudging acceptance of some of this, especially by the Indian media.

Dr. Santosh Kumar SS, deputy medical superintendent, reported in the Times of India article that vaccination played a role in the massive transmission of the virus in Kerala. He stated, “It (vaccination) might not have helped control the spread, but it definitely helped reduce the severity of the infection, hospitalization, and deaths.”

Since Ivermectin has been shown to massively reduce the spread and viral load as reviewed in Part III, and vaccination has been shown to reduce the severity, the logical result would be to use both in combination.

As they did so successfully in Uttar Pradesh, one could reduce spread by having all contacts and family members of an infected person take Ivermectin preventatively.

This method should be especially effective since Kerala admittedly no longer conducts contact tracing. Dr. A Sukumaran, state epidemiologist, reported, “An aggressive testing strategy was good till we were testing, contact tracing and isolating patients, but that is not happening now.”

With only 3% of India’s population, Kerala accounted for 50% of the country’s new daily cases on August 1, 2021. However, after stopping their occasional Ivermectin use entirely on August 5, new infections accelerated, and now they account for 2/3 of India’s cases. Kerala is moving in the wrong direction.

In Part III, this was most likely related to relaxing their lockdown restrictions to vaccinated persons. More than half of Kerala’s population has received at least one vaccination. Vaccinated persons were exempted from the lockdown, which we believe accounted for Kerala’s massive surge in sharp contrast to the rest of India.

Kerala made exceptions for vaccinated people, allowing them to mingle and travel and participate in festivals like the Hindu Festival of Onam, held annually in mid-August.

While the festival is often blamed for the spread, Kerala was already leading in cases before the festival. The real culprit is the relaxation of precautions in the vaccinated. The assumption that vaccinated people are “safe” is the real problem. That supposition is the issue, and this mistaken belief has led to global spread.

Those in the United States feel the vaccinated are safe for air travel, cruising, etc., as they have been granted vaccine passports. However, we now know the vaccinated can spread the virus every bit as quickly as the unvaccinated. A vaccinated person’s viral load is just as high as an unvaccinated.

https://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/volumes/70/wr/mm7031e2.htm

https://www.cnbc.com/2021/07/30/cdc-study-shows-74percent-of-people-infected-in-massachusetts-covid-outbreak-were-fully-vaccinated.html

Indeed, following the free travel policy in vaccinated people and the incorrect assumption they were “safe,” we saw massive surges in geographically isolated locations like Hawaii, Sri Lanka, Australia, New Zealand, and Tahiti.

The island of Sri Lanka went from an average of 200 cases per day to 5,000 cases per day. Two thousand miles from the nearest land, Hawaii saw their cases rise from 40 per day to 730. New Zealand, a country that had set an example for the world with less than a few cases per day, now jumped to 83 new cases on August 27, 2021. Tahiti, the isolated French Polynesian paradise of the South Pacific, saw their cases rise from an average of less than five per day to 1225.

These “safe” vaccinated travelers were the source of spread to those isolated destinations that previously had their pandemic under control.

A point of pride in Kerala is their high vaccination rate; they are among the top five most vaccinated states out of 29 in India. So vaccinated individuals are allowed past checkpoints and thought to be “safe.”

https://www.thehindu.com/news/cities/Coimbatore/passengers-from-kerala-turned-away-at-inter-state-checkposts-in-coimbatore/article36129173.ece

Part III shows that vaccinated patients with breakthrough infections are a potent source of spread, and we believe this has been the core source of Kerala’s rampant transmission.

https://www.thedesertreview.com/opinion/columnists/indias-ivermectin-blackout—part-iii-the-lesson-of-kerala/article_ccecb97e-044e-11ec-9112-2b31ae87887a.html

The bottom line here is that Kerala’s lesson is not being learned. Their virus seems to be transmitted more freely than anywhere else in India, and it is no longer a mystery why.  The vaccinated are spreading it as they are not subject to lockdown restrictions.

Their non-use of Ivermectin and failure to use it in all family contacts also played a significant role.

The problem now is not only failure to acknowledge the lessons of India; the problem is ongoing misleading and false publicity against Ivermectin.

https://covid19criticalcare.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/03/FLCCC-Alliance-Statement-on-Misleading-FDA-Guidance-on-Ivermectin-March7-2021.pdf

In the United States, we see a coordinated media blitz of hundreds of recent articles – all begun in unison in August 2021 – alleging increased calls to poison control – without any evidence to support this.

Why is it that nobody in Uttar Pradesh reported “poisoning” with Ivermectin? Why is it that no one who takes Ivermectin for scabies or rosacea has reported “poisoning?” Why is it that none of the 60+ studies conducted on Ivermectin involving more than 23,000 patients has found anyone with “poisoning” related to Ivermectin?

www.ivmmeta.com

Because it is not true, these reports have been fabricated to support an agenda.

However, the fact remains that in over 3.7 Billion doses of Ivermectin used over 40 years, Ivermectin has proved exceedingly safe, safer than Tylenol or aspirin and that safety record remains intact today.

When you read – incorrectly – that Ivermectin is only for the treatment of worm infestations (parasites), please think to read further and realize Ivermectin is also used to treat cancer, and it is also used to treat viruses.

https://journals.lww.com/oncology-times/fulltext/2021/05050/use_of_the_anti_parasitic_drug_ivermectin_to_treat.4.aspx

When you read that anti-parasitic drugs similar to Ivermectin – also used in both animals and humans – are now increasingly used to treat cancers, please use your common sense when the media attempts to scare you aware from them. For example, my friend with brain cancer might not be alive today without another anti-parasitic drug, Mebendazole.

While the FDA has no problem with you spending 10,000 dollars per month on toxic and ineffective chemotherapy that permanently damages your organs, they object to you taking a cheap repurposed drug that can save your life. Ask yourself why?

https://www.amazon.com/Surviving-Cancer-COVID-19-Disease-Repurposed/dp/0998055425

Did it ever occur to you that Big Pharma and Big Media may be using similar deceptive tactics that Big Tobacco used to market their products? Did you ever consider that these corporations have an agenda against you taking inexpensive medications because they might lose sales of their expensive, yet more dangerous, and less effective solutions?

https://trialsitenews.com/is-the-ivermectin-situation-rigged-in-favor-of-industry-is-the-big-tobacco-analogy-appropriate/

Would you consider reading for yourself how the media has demonized safe and effective medications through the use of fear to promote the Big Pharma agenda? Read what the most credible experts from Harvard and Yale have to say. Read about why the Nightly News, YouTube, Wikipedia, CNN, and the American networks have not been truthful with you on this subject. You don’t want them to scare you away from what works.

https://www.thedesertreview.com/opinion/columnists/doctors-story-of-light-and-life-the-covid-19-darkness-overcome-part-i/article_5ae16f0c-f614-11eb-8351-cf0d67e94c25.html

https://www.amazon.com/Ivermectin-World-Justus-R-Hope/dp/1737415909

Around the world, there is a push to censor anything related to Ivermectin’s profound effectiveness against COVID-19.

The truth is often revealed in the most unlikely locations, even more remote than India. Look at this example from South America, deep in the Amazon. Dr. Flavio Cadegiani, an MD, PhD endocrinologist, and researcher, reported his experience in the state of Amazonas during the peak of the Gamma (Brazilian variant) COVID outbreak. He found all the hospitals packed with sick patients, except one city, where the hospital was empty.

No one was sick. It was as if COVID-19 had skipped over this city which was in the middle of all the others that were brimming with cases. There was no obvious explanation according to Dr. Cadegiani.

“There in the middle of the Amazon, we went to a city called Coari. We went there expecting a full hospital with thousands of patients. (Instead) the hospital was completely empty. (So) we were not able to conduct the study there. I was trying to understand (why).”

Dr. Cadegiani asked the Secretary of Health why. She was reluctant to answer in front of people. In private, she told Dr. Cadegiani it was because the whole town had been treated with Ivermectin, but she feared his judgement.

The doctor relayed this story, “And we came to another (private) room, and she said (quietly), ‘Look, we actually have provided Ivermectin for the whole population for two months now.’

The doctor asked, ‘And why are you shy in telling me that?’

‘I thought you’d accuse us of giving unapproved treatments,’ she replied.”

The doctor explained she was fearful of government criticism. See Mark 12:00

https://odysee.com/@FrontlineCovid19CriticalCareAlliance:c/FLCCC-WEBINAR-082521_FINAL_YouTube:7

In an interview on CNN, Dr. Fauci himself, the face of organized medicine, said,

“Don’t do it – take Ivermectin for COVID.”

https://www.cnn.com/videos/health/2021/08/29/dr-anthony-fauci-ivermectin-covid-19-sotu-vpx.cnn

However, if Ivermectin has been FDA-approved as safe for scabies and rosacea, and it has, then it cannot be somehow unsafe for another condition – provided a medical doctor appropriately prescribes it.

When evaluating conflicting recommendations, one should consider the potential of bias, especially financial. Dr. Fauci’s alignment with significant corporate interests is something one should keep in mind.

https://www.thedesertreview.com/opinion/columnists/gaslighting-ivermectin-vaccines-and-the-pandemic-for-profit/article_19f42a96-05c5-11ec-8172-d776656bad51.html

When evaluating the trustworthiness of witnesses, one should ALWAYS look at bias. And place the most weight on data. Compare what Dr. Fauci said with the experience in India. The graphs of the Uttar Pradesh experience with Ivermectin compared to Kerala’s debacle without it should tell you something.

The Health Secretary of Coari had nothing to gain in explaining their secret use of Ivermectin was the reason her hospitals were empty. Indeed, a statement that admits to violating a governmental order is probably true as it is against one’s interest – it could expose one to a fine or penalty – most would not lie about something that could get them into trouble. The law of evidence holds that a statement against interest contains inherent trustworthiness.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Statement_against_interest

However, Dr. Fauci’s statements are tainted by the overwhelming influence of Big Pharma and their not-so-subtle agenda. As a result, his statements are anything but credible. So, when it comes to health matters and saving you and your family, you must decide who and what to believe. Nothing beats old-fashioned common sense. Nothing beats the truth.

India’s Ivermectin Blackout – Part III The Lesson of Kerala

with one comment

Part III in a series of articles regarding the use of Ivermectin in India

Authored by Dr. Justus R. Hope, writer’s pseudonym, graduated summa cum laude from Wabash College where he was named a Lilly Scholar. He attended Baylor College of Medicine where he was awarded the M.D. degree. He completed a residency in Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation at The University of California Irvine Medical Center. He is board-certified and has taught at The University of California Davis Medical Center in the departments of Family Practice and Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation. He has practiced medicine for over 35 years and maintains a private practice in Northern California.

The Ivermectin EffectIndia Ivermectin use

The New York Times reported India’s colossal drop in COVID cases was unexplainable, while the BBC declared that Kerala’s rise was also a mystery. While new cases of COVID in Uttar Pradesh are rare as million-dollar lottery tickets, in Kerala, a tiny state located in southern India, new daily cases are the same as the United States, nearly one case per thousand. Yet, as we have seen in this series, there has been a curious media blackout on India’s overall success against COVID.

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-india-58054124

https://www.nytimes.com/2021/07/30/briefing/coronavirus-delta-mysteries.html

“Kerala has been reporting over 22,000 new COVID infections in the last three days. No other state in India is even close to the 10,000 mark. The COVID conundrum in the southern state has led to several questions, with no certain answers.”

https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/india/this-may-explain-why-covid-cases-are-still-soaring-in-kerala/articleshow/84862049.cms

The Times of India published this statement on July 29. Kerala has continued to have the majority of new daily cases and almost 25% of India’s daily deaths despite a population of 34 million, less than 3% of India’s total population.

On August 15, Kerala accounted for 18,582 of India’s 32,937 new cases and 102 of India’s 417 new deaths. By contrast, the Ivermectin-using state of Delhi, with nearly the same population size, recorded only 53 new cases and ZERO deaths. In comparison, Uttar Pradesh, with almost eight times as many inhabitants, had only 30 new cases and ONE death.

Kerala had 619 times as many new cases as Uttar Pradesh and over 100 times as many deaths.

So what could Kerala be doing wrong?

Hint: Over-reliance on vaccines and under-reliance on Ivermectin.

Uttar Pradesh led India in its use and has done even better than Delhi because they use Ivermectin early and preventatively.

“Uttar Pradesh was the first state in the country to introduce large-scale prophylactic and therapeutic use of Ivermectin. In May-June 2020, a team at Agra led by Dr. Anshul Pareek, administered Ivermectin to all RRT team members in the district on an experimental basis. It was observed that NONE OF THEM developed COVID-19 despite being in daily contact with patients who had tested positive for the virus,” Uttar Pradesh State Surveillance Officer Vikssendu Agrawal said.

https://indianexpress.com/article/cities/lucknow/uttar-pradesh-government-says-ivermectin-helped-to-keep-deaths-low-7311786/

Uttar Pradesh has a policy of treating ALL the contacts of an infected patient prophylactically with Ivermectin.  In other words, in Uttar Pradesh, everyone in the house gets Ivermectin treatment even if only one is infected. Ivermectin is known to reduce mortality in infected and dramatically lowers the viral load, thereby helping reduce the spread of the virus to others.

https://www.medrxiv.org/content/10.1101/2021.05.31.21258081v1.full

Dr. Tess Lawrie discussed the Ivermectin-related reduction in viral load and reduced transmissibility.

https://journals.lww.com/americantherapeutics/fulltext/2021/08000/ivermectin_for_prevention_and_treatment_of.7.aspx

Tamil Nadu rejected India’s Ivermectin protocol on May 14 in favor of Remdesivir and mirrored our U.S. FDA policy. The U.S. also reflected Tamil Nadu’s dismal results.

https://www.thedesertreview.com/opinion/letters_to_editor/tamil-nadu-leads-india-in-new-infections-denies-citizens-ivermectin/article_32634012-ba66-11eb-9211-ab378d521f9a.html

To be clear, on April 22, the All India Institute of Medical Science (AIIMS) and the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) added Ivermectin to the protocol as an option for the early treatment – even in mild cases – of COVID-19.

https://www.indiatoday.in/coronavirus-outbreak/story/aiims-new-treatment-guidelines-for-covid19-1794038-2021-04-22

https://www.amazon.com/Ivermectin-World-Justus-R-Hope/dp/1737415909

This guideline was updated May 17, 2021,  and continues to incorporate Ivermectin, although some states like Tamil Nadu and Kerala have chosen NOT to adopt this Ivermectin protocol – much to their detriment.

https://covid.aiims.edu/clinical-guidance-for-management-of-adult-covid-19-patients/

Despite a widespread attempt by the media and WHO to convince the world that India has dropped Ivermectin by citing the DGHS, the ICMR and AIIMS have not changed their position, and Ivermectin remains in the India National Protocol.

https://m.economictimes.com/industry/healthcare/biotech/pharmaceuticals/hcq-out-of-dghs-covid-care-list-but-still-present-in-icmr-protocol/articleshow/83321687.cms

While Kerala included Ivermectin in their state’s guideline in April, they restricted it’s use to only in Class B – severe cases or those with associated disease, making its use much less than if mild cases were allowed. This meant it was reserved as a late treatment if used at all.

https://health.kerala.gov.in/pdf/treatment_guidelines_apr_2021.pdf

Finally, Kerala abandoned Ivermectin use altogether on August 5, 2021.

https://health.kerala.gov.in/pdf/Kerala_state_Covid_19_Treatment_guidelines_V4_August_5.pdf

Juan Chamie, the Cambridge-based data analyst who has provided graphical insight and published on COVID, provided his answer to why Kerala’s COVID cases have spun out of control.

“My main current explanation is the lack of early treatment. Kerala’s COVID protocol from April 2021 included Ivermectin, but not as an early treatment. As a result, only a small group qualified, those in Category B patients having high-risk factors. The new protocol from August 5 is even worse. They removed Ivermectin (completely).”

Another factor, according to Juan, was poor contact tracing. In addition, according to an Indian Governmental Audit, FAMILY TRANSMISSION was a significant problem.

https://www.thehindu.com/news/national/kerala/central-team-pinpoints-flaws-in-states-covid-protocol/article35860715.ece

The Hindu reported on  August 11, 2021, stated, “In districts such as Malappuram and Kozhikode, where the family size is huge and joint families are the norm, the transmission was spreading within families leading to a high test positivity rate.”

Juan Chamie added this about the test positivity rate, “If you look at the test positivity rate of Kerala, it declined from over 25% to 10% and remained stable around it. Since the last protocol change that removed Ivermectin, the positivity rate is increasing. In less than two weeks, the positivity rate jumped and right now is above 15%, the highest in the last two months.”

However, the most problematic feature is Kerala’s high vaccination rate compared to the other Indian States. While vaccination should be a good thing, it can have severe negative consequences when it leads to rampant viral transmission.

Uttar Pradesh beats all other states (except Bihar) with the lowest COVID deaths and infections because of early and preventative Ivermectin use IN ALL FAMILY CONTACTS. This is despite Uttar Pradesh having only a 4.9% vaccination rate, one of the five lowest of all states in India. On the other hand, Kerala ranks in the top five most vaccinated states. Kerala has vaccinated 70%  citizens 45 years and older, and almost 56% of its population has had at least one shot.

The problem with that is that vaccination may give a state a false sense of security.

For example, in an article published on August 13, the details of the Kerala lockdown were discussed. Those with a PCR negative test, those with prior resolved COVID infection, and those WITH AT LEAST ONE VACCINATION were exempted.

https://indianexpress.com/article/explained/kerala-covid-19-lockdown-rules-guidelines-explained-7439694/

As of August 13, 56 percent of Kerala adults over age 18 who had received at least one shot were allowed to mingle and transmit the virus freely. While Ivermectin lowers the viral load and inhibits transmission, the same cannot be said for vaccination.

Viral loads of the vaccinated are just as high as those of the unvaccinated as the CDC has admitted. This means that a vaccinated infected person can spread the virus just as quickly as an unvaccinated. Moreover, the viral load of the Delta infection is often on the order of 1,000 times greater than in the original strain. Finally, a vaccinated person may have milder or no symptoms leading them to take fewer precautions.

https://www.npr.org/sections/coronavirus-live-updates/2021/07/30/1022867219/cdc-study-provincetown-delta-vaccinated-breakthrough-mask-guidance

Many people believe that breakthrough infections in the vaccinated are a rare occurrence. However, the truth of the matter is the opposite. Breakthrough infections can occur with even GREATER FREQUENCY in the vaccinated. For example, in the recent Massachusetts outbreak, the CDC reported that out of 469 cases, fully 74% occurred in the vaccinated.

Finally, the top five states surging in the United States with record COVID infections currently contain two states in the most vaccinated third: Oregon and Hawaii.

The situation in Oregon is severe enough to call the National Guard, while Hawaii’s health director is using terms like disaster and crisis.

“When we see this exponential growth in the amount of people that are getting infected with COVID-19 every day – 2,000 people in the last three days – that’s a crisis. And at the point at which we overwhelm our resources, that’s a disaster.”

As of August 16, 2021, Hawaii ranked number 17 in percent fully vaccinated at 54.29%. Oregon ranked number 12 with 56.79%.

https://www.beckershospitalreview.com/public-health/states-ranked-by-percentage-of-population-vaccinated-march-15.html

And the Indian state of Kerala ranks in the top five most vaccinated of India’s 29 states. However, if a vaccinated person spreads the virus while someone on Ivermectin does not, that would explain Kerala’s epic failure.

The lesson?

Ivermectin can make up for the low use of vaccination. However, vaccination cannot make up for the low use of Ivermectin.

No ivermectin use high vaccination rate

Part II of a series on the use of Ivermectin to treat COVID-19 in India

Delhi Covid Cases pre and post ivermectin

Delhi Obliterates COVID with Ivermectin

“In India — where the Delta variant was first identified and caused a huge outbreak — cases have plunged over the past two months. A similar drop may now be underway in Britain. There is no clear explanation for these declines.”

David Leonhardt of the New York Times wrote this on July 30, 2021.

https://www.nytimes.com/2021/07/30/briefing/coronavirus-delta-mysteries.html

TrialSite News in May reported on “Beyond the Roundup” their analysis.

https://youtu.be/pko4LldUQCI

TSN reported that the Delta variant outbreak exploded in the last week of March, primarily in migrant workers. A large percent of these workers, up to 50% of all Indian citizens, travel to Mumbai each year. However, during April, as the outbreak spread, many workers returned to their hometowns, and many resided in Uttar Pradesh, causing this area to explode with cases.

On April 22, the ICMR and the AAIMS groups added Ivermectin to the India National protocol, and following this, according to TSN, cases dropped exponentially.

“At the national level, the massive surge that overtook the country at the beginning of April slowed exponentially after the new COVID-19 protocol was introduced, which includes the use of Ivermectin and Budesonide.” See Mark 6:58

https://youtu.be/pko4LldUQCI

“Cases in Uttar Pradesh, hometown to many migrant workers who fled Mumbai, have been dropping since April 24, and deaths have dropped since April 30.”

The narrator stated on May 15, 2021, that “the media is resistant to report on this topic (Ivermectin).”

“An important subsequent topic of study would be to compare the transmission rates, disease progression rates, and death rates among population exposed to the current Ivermectin and Budesonide regimen versus Remdesivir and other courses of action for more granular insight into care strategies.”

Subsequently, this question was answered. A natural population experiment unfolded where the Indian state of Tamil Nadu outlawed Ivermectin in favor of Remdesivir while Delhi and Uttar Pradesh continued Ivermectin.

The enormous success of Delhi was reviewed by this author twice:

https://www.thedesertreview.com/opinion/letters_to_editor/ivermectin-crushes-delhi-cases/article_31f3afcc-b7fa-11eb-9585-0f6a290ee105.html

https://www.thedesertreview.com/news/national/ivermectin-obliterates-97-percent-of-delhi-cases/article_6a3be6b2-c31f-11eb-836d-2722d2325a08.html

The contrast with Tamil Nadu was reviewed:

https://www.thedesertreview.com/opinion/letters_to_editor/tamil-nadu-leads-india-in-new-infections-denies-citizens-ivermectin/article_32634012-ba66-11eb-9211-ab378d521f9a.html

The Burgundy graph above reveals the numbers in Delhi after they included Ivermectin in the protocol. Delhi is a city with 30 million inhabitants and, as of August 11, saw 37 new cases and ZERO deaths. By contrast, Tamil Nadu, a city of 78 million, saw 1964 new cases and 28 new deaths.

Tamil Nadu shares their rejection of Ivermectin and choice to use Remdesivir in common with the United States.

As of August 10, the United States, with 331 million inhabitants, saw 161,990 new cases and 1,049 new deaths. Uttar Pradesh is a state in India of comparable population to the US. Uttar Pradesh contains 241 million people. On August 10, Uttar Pradesh saw only 19 new cases and ONE death, over 1,000 times lower than the US.

The evidence in favor of Ivermectin is massive and overwhelming, which includes W.H.O. scientists Drs. Tess Lawrie’s and Andrew Hill’s recent highly-regarded and peer-reviewed publications [for anyone who wishes to show scientific data to their doctors]:

https://academic.oup.com/ofid/advance-article/doi/10.1093/ofid/ofab358/6316214

https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/34145166/

Dr. Pierre Kory also published a review:

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC8088823/

Dr. Peter McCullough similarly published via preprint yet another review and all of these strongly showed the drug to be safe and effective against COVID-19.

https://www.medrxiv.org/content/10.1101/2021.07.06.21259924v1

What should alarm any reader is that Dr. Tess Lawrie reports that Dr. Andrew Hill’s paper’s conclusion was changed by his sponsor, and Dr. Hill was given a gag order on speaking to the media.

https://www.amazon.com/Ivermectin-World-Justus-R-Hope/dp/1737415909

But the bottom line remains why India’s Ivermectin experience remains under a media blackout. Why does the New York Times, who should know better, say it is all a great mystery?

TSN offers an answer, “Despite the (Indian) government’s insistence on promoting Ivermectin and Budesonide, the media hasn’t shown interest in sharing this news. (Instead), the comments continue to promote Remdesivir as an effective drug, and the few media outlets that do refer to Ivermectin call it an unproven medicine or an outdated treatment. It is as if there are two different treatment realities, (one) on the ground and (one) in the local health systems. Millions of patients are now receiving Ivermectin, yet one would never know by the media topics.” See Mark 5:15.

“It’s almost as if there is a blackout on the topic.”

Allow me to offer an explanation. The cost of Remdesivir is $3,100 per dose, while the cost of Ivermectin is pennies.

https://www.thedesertreview.com/opinion/letters_to_editor/big-pharma-uses-big-tobaccos-strategy-to-defeat-ivermectin/article_fc17022e-9ba6-11eb-8c7b-633764c1bf9e.html

While the US FDA is against using Ivermectin for COVID-19 outside of a clinical trial, the NIH is neither for or against and leaves the choice up to individual doctors treating individual patients as a matter of choice.

If India’s Ivermectin-using states have 1/1000 of the deaths non-Ivermectin-using countries have, why would you not?

India’s Ivermectin Blackout

with one comment

Part I of a series on the use of Ivermectin to treat COVID-19 in India

Authored by Dr. Justus R. Hope, writer’s pseudonym, graduated summa cum laude from Wabash College where he was named a Lilly Scholar. He attended Baylor College of Medicine where he was awarded the M.D. degree. He completed a residency in Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation at The University of California Irvine Medical Center.

News of India’s defeat of the Delta variant should be common knowledge. It is just about as obvious as the nose on one’s face. It is so clear when one looks at the graphs that no one can deny it.

Yet, for some reason, we are not allowed to talk about it. Thus, for example, Wikipedia cannot mention the peer-reviewed meta-analyses by Dr. Tess Lawrie or Dr. Pierre Kory published in the American Journal of Therapeutics.

https://www.thedesertreview.com/opinion/columnists/wikipedia-and-a-pint-of-gin/article_22ffa0d8-dde9-11eb-be75-d7b0b1f2ff67.html

Wikipedia is not allowed to publish the recent meta-analysis on Ivermectin authored by Dr. Andrew Hill. Furthermore, it is not allowed to say anything concerning www.ivmmeta.com showing the 61 studies comprising 23,000 patients which reveal up to a 96% reduction in death [prophylaxis] with Ivermectin.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk%3AIvermectin

One can see the bias in Wikipedia by going on the “talk” pages for each subject and reading about the fierce attempts of editors to add these facts and the stone wall refusals by the “senior” editors who have an agenda. And that agenda is not loyalty to your health.

The easy way to read the “talk” page on any Wikipedia subject is to click the top left “talk” button. Anyone can then review the editors’ discussions.

There is a blackout on any conversation about how Ivermectin beat COVID-19 in India. When I discussed the dire straits that India found itself in early this year with 414,000 cases per day, and over 4,000 deaths per day, and how that evaporated within five weeks of the addition of Ivermectin, I am often asked, “But why is there no mention of that in the news?”

Yes, exactly. Ask yourself why India’s success against the Delta variant with Ivermectin is such a closely guarded secret by the NIH and CDC. Second, ask yourself why no major media outlets reported this fact, but instead, tried to confuse you with false information by saying the deaths in India are 10 times greater than official reports.

https://www.npr.org/sections/goatsandsoda/2021/07/20/1018438334/indias-pandemic-death-toll-estimated-at-about-4-million-10-times-the-official-co

Perhaps NPR is trying so hard because NPR is essentially a government mouthpiece. The US government is “all-in” with vaccines with the enthusiasm of a 17th century Catholic Church “all-in” with a Geocentric Model of the Universe disputing Galileo. Claiming that India’s numbers are inaccurate might distract from the overwhelming success of Ivermectin.

But in the end, the truth matters. It mattered in 1616, and it matters in 2021.

India Uttar Pradesh State Data COVID/Ivermectin

The graphs and data from the Johns Hopkins University CSSE database do not lie. On the contrary, they provide a compelling trail of truth that no one can dispute, not even the NIH, CDC, FDA, and WHO.

Just as Galileo proved with his telescope that the earth was NOT the center of the Universe in 1616; today, the data from India shows that Ivermectin is effective, much more so than the vaccines. It not only prevents death, but it also prevents COVID infections, and it also is effective against the Delta Variant.

In 1616, you could not make up the telescopic images of Jupiter and its orbiting moons, nor could you falsify the crescent-shaped images of Venus and Mercury. These proved that the earth was NOT the center of the Universe – a truth the Catholic Church could not allow.

Likewise, the massive drop in cases and deaths in India to almost nothing after the addition of Ivermectin proved the drug’s effectiveness. This is a truth that the NIH, CDC, and FDA cannot allow because it would endanger the vaccine policy.

Never mind that Ivermectin would save more lives with much less risk, much less cost, and it would end the pandemic quickly.

Let us look at the burgundy-colored graph of Uttar Pradesh. First, allow me to thank Juan Chamie, a highly-respected Cambridge-based data analyst, who created this graph from the JHU CSSE data. Uttar Pradesh is a state in India that contains 241 million people. The United States’ population is 331 million people. Therefore, Uttar Pradesh can be compared to the United States, with 2/3 of our population size.

This data shows how Ivermectin knocked their COVID-19 cases and deaths – which we know were Delta Variant – down to almost zero within weeks. A population comparable to the US went from about 35,000 cases and 350 deaths per day to nearly ZERO within weeks of adding Ivermectin to their protocol.

By comparison, the United States is the lower graph. On August 5, here in the good ol’ USA, blessed with the glorious vaccines, we have 127,108 new cases per day and 574 new deaths.

Let us look at the August 5 numbers from Uttar Pradesh with 2/3 of our population. Uttar Pradesh, using Ivermectin, had a total of 26 new cases and exactly THREE deaths. The US without Ivermectin has precisely 4889 times as many daily cases and 191 times as many deaths as Uttar Pradesh with Ivermectin.

It is not even close. Countries do orders of magnitude better WITH Ivermectin. It might be comparable to the difference in travel between using an automobile versus a horse and buggy.

 

Uttar Pradesh on Ivermectin:  Population 240 Million [4.9% fully vaccinated]

COVID Daily Cases: 26

COVID Daily Deaths: 3

The United States off Ivermectin: Population 331 Million [50.5% fully vaccinated]

COVID Daily Cases: 127,108

COVID Daily Deaths: 574

Let us look at other Ivermectin using areas of India with numbers from August 5, 2021, compiled by the JHU CSSE:

Delhi on Ivermectin: Population 31 Million [15% fully vaccinated]

COVID Daily Cases: 61

COVID Daily Deaths: 2

Uttarakhand on Ivermectin: Population 11.4 Million [15% fully vaccinated]

COVID Daily Cases: 24

COVID Daily Deaths: 0

Now let us look at an area of India that rejected Ivermectin.

https://www.thehindu.com/news/national/tamil-nadu/tn-drops-ivermectin-as-covid-19-drug/article34561235.ece

Tamil Nadu announced they would reject Ivermectin and instead follow the dubious USA-style guidance of using Remdesivir. Knowing this, you might expect their numbers to be closer to the US, with more cases and more deaths. You would be correct. Tamil Nadu went on to lead India in COVID-19 cases.

https://www.thedesertreview.com/opinion/letters_to_editor/tamil-nadu-leads-india-in-new-infections-denies-citizens-ivermectin/article_32634012-ba66-11eb-9211-ab378d521f9a.html

Tamil Nadu continues to suffer for its choice to reject Ivermectin. As a result, the Delta variant continues to ravage their citizens while it was virtually wiped out in the Ivermectin-using states. Likewise, in the United States, without Ivermectin, both the vaccinated and unvaccinated continue to spread the Delta variant like wildfire.

https://www.cnn.com/2021/08/05/health/us-coronavirus-thursday/index.html

Tamil Nadu off Ivermectin: Population 78.8 Million [6.9% fully vaccinated]

COVID Daily Cases: 1,997

COVID Daily Deaths: 33

Like the JHU CSSE data, Galileo’s telescope did not lie either, and the truth can usually be found in plain sight. Ivermectin works, and it works exceedingly well. Harvard-trained virologist Dr. George Fareed and his associate, Dr. Brian Tyson of California’s Imperial Valley, have saved 99.9% of their patients with a COVID Cocktail that includes Ivermectin. They have released versions of their new book published in the Desert Review that everyone should read.

https://www.thedesertreview.com/opinion/columnists/doctors-story-of-light-and-life-the-covid-19-darkness-overcome-part-i/article_5ae16f0c-f614-11eb-8351-cf0d67e94c25.html

I could talk about how every one of my patients who used Ivermectin recovered rapidly, about my most recent case who felt 90% better within 48 hours of adding the drug, but I won’t. I could write about how Wikipedia censors more than Pravda, about how you should always read the “talk” section of EVERY Wikipedia article to go behind the scenes and understand what the editors DO NOT want you to read, but I will refrain.

I could write about VAERS and how it is so much easier to navigate by following Open VAERS or how Wikipedia has unfairly portrayed Dr. Peter McCullough, one of the world’s sharpest and most credible doctors. But I will hold back.

https://www.openvaers.com/

I could also discuss our current cancer treatment system’s dangers and how chemotherapy and radiation stimulate cancer stem cells and cancer recurrence. About how this information has been suppressed and how the addition of repurposed drug cocktails can help prevent this, but I digress.

https://www.amazon.com/Surviving-Cancer-COVID-19-Disease-Repurposed/dp/0998055425

I could recite the history of early outpatient treatment of COVID-19 with repurposed drugs, including Ivermectin, with all the specifics, and EXACTLY WHY this lifesaving information has been censored, but instead, I will leave researching these topics to each of you readers as individuals.

https://www.amazon.com/Ivermectin-World-Justus-R-Hope/dp/1737415909

Because you already know what will happen if you simply sit back and swallow what the media are feeding you. You MUST question what the government tells you, and always DO YOUR OWN research.

Following the 1616 Inquisition of Galileo, the Pope banned all books and letters that argued the sun was the center of the Universe instead of the Earth. Similarly, today, the FDA and WHO have banned any use of Ivermectin for COVID outside of a clinical trial.

https://www.fda.gov/consumers/consumer-updates/why-you-should-not-use-ivermectin-treat-or-prevent-covid-19

https://www.who.int/news-room/feature-stories/detail/who-advises-that-ivermectin-only-be-used-to-treat-covid-19-within-clinical-trials

YouTube and Wikipedia both consider Ivermectin for COVID as heresy.

“YouTube doesn’t allow content that spreads medical misinformation that contradicts local health authorities or the World Health Organization’s (WHO) medical information about COVID-19… Treatment misinformation: claims that Ivermectin is an effective treatment for COVID-19.”

Wikipedia defines heresy as:  “any belief or theory that is strongly at variance with established beliefs or customs, in particular the accepted beliefs of a church or religious organization. The term is usually used in reference to violations of important religious teachings, but is also used of views strongly opposed to any generally accepted ideas. A heretic is a proponent of heresy.”

Heresy is disagreeing with the government, or their health authority, even if they are all wrong and even if their policies harm people. Today we no longer call it heresy; it is labeled as misinformation.

Galileo was found guilty of heresy and sentenced on June 22, 1633, to formal imprisonment, although this was commuted to house arrest, under which he remained for the rest of his life.
