Do The Research

A recent headline was that the United States leads the world in COVID-19 deaths, with 150,000. Governor Andrew Cuomo warned New York State’s young adults not to be stupid and wear a mask. This from the man who ordered COVID-19 patients into nursing homes for the elderly, the most vulnerable and susceptible among us. His intent was to relieve overburdened hospitals; its result was something predictably far worse.

The media dwells on the increase in the number of cases but ignores the reasons and treatment. Obviously, as there is more testing, the total cases will increase. What is more important is the number of fatalities. On this, the United States has failed miserably with Dr. Anthony Fauci at the helm. Under his guidance, the U.S. fatality rate of 488.53 per million people is one of the highest ratios in the world.

Consider today’s statistics, compiled from Statista, listing fatalities per million people of population: India, 30.74; Japan, 8.18; Bangladesh, 20.49, South Korea, a mere 5.87. We are experiencing a death rate almost 60 times that of Japan and almost 16 times that of India, two of the most densely populated countries on the planet. Try social distancing in those places! Japan had only the briefest of shutdowns and their economy has not been ravaged by pandemic policy.

We should be looking to other countries and see why they’ve been so successful in preventing fatalities. You can do your own research and learn what treatment methods are being employed by these countries, and what they are doing there that we are not. There are, indeed, several extremely successful methodologies that I am not permitted to mention because of editorial concerns — but don’t let that prevent you from being proactive.

Many doctors’ groups across our nation are suing the Food and Drug Administration and the Department of Health and Human Services over policy. The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons lawsuit against the FDA seeks to end arbitrary interference in the treatment of patients who were front-line first responders.

Last week, Dr. Stella Immanuel, at a press conference, while surrounded by her colleagues, challenged the FDA and the National Institutes of Health to end the policy of threatening doctors’ licenses to practice, or with sanctions, if they continued treatment with unapproved medication in spite of its success around the world.

Dr. Harvey Risch, a highly respected Yale School of Public Health epidemiologist, estimates that the FDA policy will be responsible for 75,000 to 100,000 unnecessary deaths by blocking this treatment. A Texas physician, Dr. Richard Bartlett, has effectively treated hundreds of patients with a simple asthma drug administered in a nebulizer. Look him up.

Wake up, America, to what is actually happening.
