Studies Show Effective Treatment – So Why Are Nursing Home Patients Being Left To Die with COVID-19 Untreated?

“Our loved ones need not die so Fauci and Gates can have his moment in the sun with a vaccine next year.”

THE STUDIES OUT OF CHINA were clear: hydroxychloroquine improved health outcomes of patients with COVID-19. French study? The same.

In the hands of US scientists? Maybe, but they are not studying it on the full population like the Chinese scientists did, they moved the goalpost (changed the health outcome during the trial), and they used smaller (less powerful) studies.

Remdesivir? Gilead announced early promising results, and so what does NIAID do? They shut down that trial.

How about plasma convalescent therapy, where survivors donate their antibodies for other people to recover more quickly, have lower rates of serious and critical illness, lower hospitalization rates, and lower deaths? Did you know FDA recommends it for people who cannot have access to it in a clinical trial?

You won’t hear about other efficacy studies from China, and you won’t hear about the efficacy studies of hyperbaric oxygen therapy.

You won’t hear about the multicenter guidance consensus statement published recommending use of antivirals in serious pediatric cases of COVID-19.

And of course you won’t hear about the <2% hospitalization rate achieved by the preeminent Dr. David Btownstein with his high-dose vitamin regimen either, since FTC shut down his website in which he published direct interviews of patients under his care. No deaths, and the FTC shut it down.

So, we’re launching a case series study of his treatment regimen that will lead to a study submitted to a clinical journal for peer review. [Go to ipaknowledge.org now to support – see How to Donate).

In smaller, less powered US government-related studies, hydroxychloroquine seems to lose its efficacy, and the US touts the results as more definitive than the larger, more powered studies that previously did report efficacy.

Now why would the US medico-government shut down studies and reports of treatment options that reduce the rate of serious and critical illness and death? Could it be that they want a sufficiently high mortality rate to warrant continued lock-down as a justification for their vaccine?

Kinda makes you wonder, doesn’t it. The US medico-government is willing to allow people nursing homes to die with zero – ZERO intervention – not even a glass of orange juice for the Vitamin C – no compassionate use of hydroxychloroquine + Zpak, no attempts at remdesivir, no attempts at plasma convalescent therapy, no universal open-label retrospective study like are applied to vaccines all the time, well, they are simply allowing nursing home staff members to join them in an outright passive, but nonetheless willfull, massacre.

Most of the practicing and licensed physicians I know would never sit by idly and watch a patient deteriorate and do nothing, and follow up with ventilator that blows out their patients’ lung tissues after the virus has weaked the alveoli to the periphery. They would join me the condemnation of the ongoing willful massacre of our elderly in nursing homes around the country.

Wake up, America. Here is the list of studies and web resources the medico-fascists hell bent on a COVID-19 vaccine don’t want you to know about.

On March 28, the FDA issued an emergency use authorization allowing healthcare providers to make available chloroquine phosphate or hydroxychloroquine sulfate to “patients for whom a clinical trial is not available, or participation is not feasible,” adding “FDA encourages the conduct and participation in randomized controlled clinical trials that may produce evidence concerning the effectiveness of these products in treating COVID-19.”

So where are the treatments for the elderly?

My advice to people? Keep mom and dad, grandma and grandpa the hell away from nursing homes. If they are already there, get a lawyer and demand they be tested, and if negative for active infection, get them out. If they are already infected, send the lawyer this article and have them issue a letter of a threat of a lawsuit for wrongful death and malpractice for the attending physician.

And start clamoring for criminal negligence against the Board of Directors of the nursing home. Our loved ones need not die so Fauci and Gates can have his moment in the sun with a vaccine next year.

Do you have other studies that support the use of these or other treatments to add? Drop them in the comments, with a link.

  1. Thanks for a great relevant article.

    Dr. Vladimir Zev Zelenko has a very successful Hydroxychloroquine protocol using ZPak and zinc sulphate. The combination of the 3 seems to be the key. He is based in New York. Based on his facebook page they have managed to convince the Israeli MOH to use this protocol as a first line of defense.

    Note that you have miss-spelt Dr Brownsteins name in the article.

  2. They’re only interested in making money and they can’t out of natural products, or those which are not able to be patented. They honestly DON’T care about people’s health. It’s money, power and control all the way. If people die, why should they care? It’s going to get to the point where it won’t matter who dies as long as they can maintain a situation to their benefit. They don’t have a conscience. We shouldn’t expect more from them than that.

    1. If they actually cared about people they wouldn’t have sent Covid19 infected patients to nursing homes in the first place, absolutely the worst place possible to send them (Yes, I’m looking at YOU Andy Cuomo).

  3. See Dr Rowen’s compukation and work with global doctors documenting the efficacy of ozone treatments for covid-19 patients.
    Drrowendrsu.com

  4. https://www.wnd.com/2020/05/tale-2-drugs-lives-sacrificed-altar-money-power/ In short, the CDC is in bed with Gilead Science as nine of the experts on the NIH COVID-19 Panel recommending treatment options have disclosed financial support from Gilead.

    Gilead Science created the anti-viral remdesivir which was unsuccessful for Ebola. They are now digging it out of the drug graveyard and pushing it for COVID-19 to make up for lost profits. HCQ, even though it’s clinically showing great success, stands in the way of their chosen profitable treatment. Remdesivir is not without side-effects and only showed modest benefits against COVID-19 but this is the CDC’s “golden” treatment, therefore, everything said about it is positive while they bad-mouth HCQ.

    This is the CDC’s MO – similarly to their insistence upon having their own test. They’ve done exactly the same things regarding Lyme disease: https://madisonarealymesupportgroup.com/2020/04/26/cdc-playbook-learning-from-lyme/

    The CDC has lost all credibility and until we demand they can not own patents and compete with the private sector, nothing they recommend is based on any sort of unbiased science.

  5. Not only are nursing home patients without treatment – another factoid not widely known:
    https://www.rt.com/op-ed/488584-contact-tracing-police-state-incompetence/

    “With over 22,000 deaths as of Wednesday, New York has become the pandemic’s epicenter, its casualty count swollen with an appalling number of nursing home victims thanks to Cuomo’s statewide order mandating those facilities accept infected patients despite the risk they posed to the elderly inhabitants at risk.”

    Three states hit hard by the pandemic — New York, New Jersey and California — have ordered nursing homes and other long-term care facilities to accept coronavirus patients discharged from hospitals. https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/coronavirus-spreads-new-york-nursing-home-forced-take-recovering-patients-n1191811

    States are mandating that nursing homes, filled with the vulnerable, accept sick hospital patients.

    One does begin to think getting people sick is by design.

  6. Here is a convenient compilation of hydroxychloroquine clinical results by Dr. James Todaro:

    https://docs.google.com/document/d/1O6Cls-Oz2ZAgJuyDbnICEGjMvQPEyM-aaXARUomR9Ww/edit

    Fortunately, on Twitter I discovered there are several physicians deconstructing the faulty HCQ studies such as the VA retrospective study published by three ophthamologists (none of them examined any of the covid19 pts in the report), at least one with ties to Gilead.

    Also, Dr. Kory gave testimony to a Senate DHS committee hearing on the impressive efficacy of his working group’s M.A.T.H. plus protocol featuring methylprednisolone (commonly used in ICUs); ascorbic acid / IV vitamin C; thiamine plus other supplements such as zinc; and heparin. The network working group includes Dr. Marik, pioneer of well known Marik protocol used by critical care intensivists to combat sepsis via IV vitamin C. I understand Marik has been advising Chinese physicians using IV vit C for covid19.

    One more natural nontoxic treatment. Ozone. Three clinical trials in China using ozone for covid19.
    https://isco3.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/English-Covid-19-2.pdf

    Dr. Robert Rowen has been advising on this protocol in international venues, likely in China as well. His impressive success with Ebola saved lives in Africa, esp. front line physicians, but was not embraced by government authorities to be widely used despite very low cost.

    Recent Dr. Rowen interview. https://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2020/05/03/ozone-therapy.aspx?

    Thank you, Dr. Lyons-Weiler, for your upcoming paper on Dr. Brownstein’s fantastic results. I will share it any chance I get.

    1. The team conducting a study have wasted everyone’s time completely. Just like so many vaccine studies, they believe that they can conclude that hydroxychloroquine has no general benefit after adjusting to study for many so-called confounding variables. Those confounding variables include variation introduced by people that have conditions that might make hydroxychloroquine especially important for them. Studies like this should be conducted with 100% transparent model selection that shows the significance of the factor that they’re testing for including all the variables including some of the variables including correcting for variables and not correcting for variables. Better yet they should use block designs and report groups in which HCQ is and is not effective. This is a crap vaccine science-like study picking one arbitrary result.

  7. SARS-CoV-2 spike protein had the highest overall binding energy for human ACE2, greater than all the other tested species including bat, the postulated source of the virus. This indicates that SARS-CoV-2 is a highly adapted human pathogen. The binding energy between SARS-CoV-2 spike protein and ACE2 was highest for humans out of all species tested, suggesting that SARS-CoV-2 spike protein is uniquely evolved to bind and infect cells expressing human ACE2.

    This finding is particularly surprising as, typically, a virus would be expected to have highest affinity for the receptor in its original host species, e.g. bat, with a lower initial binding affinity for the receptor of any new host, e.g. humans. However, in this case, the affinity of SARS-CoV-2 is higher for humans than for the putative original host species, bats, or for any potential intermediary host species. Overall, the data indicates that SARS-CoV-2 is uniquely adapted to infect humans, raising important questions as to whether it arose in nature by a rare chance event or whether its origins might lie elsewhere https://arxiv.org/ftp/arxiv/papers/2005/2005.06199.pdf

  8. Without the malaria drug – hydroxychloroquine – Europeans would have never survived the tropics and never colonized all those countries or would have gotten wealthy beyond imagination.

    What is a big deal if one takes hydroxychloroquine and wears a wrist EKG monitor for heart rate abnormality. Run to ER if it happens. It is not that hard to get arrhythmia under control… All those SLE people and arthritic people have been taking this stuff regularly, and, for life!

    But, if you want to reduce (State’s) Medicare outlays in future, the best bet is to kill all those who are chronically ill (called comorbid) while telling them they are so sorry and at the same time shoving tubes everywhere.

    I appreciate your post. I hope someday you will come around that this virus was engineered; how did it get out probably will never be found, unless Dr Shi sings.

  9. Did you mean Dr. BRownstein?

    Nursing homes are highly flu-vaccinated populations (stats can be found on the CDC’s website). I have heard 2 stories of people getting this year’s flu vaccine and subsequently becoming very ill. In one case, it was my sister-in-law, who had to be taken to the ER by my brother, she was so ill. She was told that she did indeed have flu, but that this year’s vaccine didn’t work at all.

    Is it possible that nursing home residents have been very sick with flu, have not received appropriate care even for that, and that a lot of cases are being labeled as Covid-19 that perhaps are not?

    Also, I hope everyone saw this article:
    ——
    https://www.nytimes.com/2020/06/04/health/coronavirus-antibiotics-drugs.html?

    Doctors Heavily Overprescribed Antibiotics Early in the Pandemic

    … Dr. Chopra said the doctors, and others across the country who liberally dispensed antibiotics in the early weeks of the pandemic, soon realized their mistake. …

    Dr. Chopra of Detroit Medical Center estimated that UP TO A THIRD OF CORONAVIRUS PATIENTS WHO DIED AT THE HOSPITAL WERE KILLED BY OPPORTUNISTIC PATHOGENS LIKE C. DIFFICILE, a pernicious infection that causes uncontrolled diarrhea and is increasingly resistant to antibiotics. That figure, she said, was quite likely heightened by the poor underlying health of patients who also had diabetes or hypertension or were obese. …
    ——
    Now, extrapolate that… And pair it up with the very important story that PBS Nova reporters told—and totally dropped the ball on:
    ——
    “As soon as I started taking the [prescribed] medication, my symptoms got worse. I lost my appetite, I couldn’t keep anything down, and I had TERRIBLE DIARRHEA.” [Video image at 9:34 shows a bubble-packed sheet of green and white capsules and an outer package with Chinese characters on it.]

    —Liu Qi, approx. 9:30, PBS’s Nova program, “Decoding Covid-19”
    ——
    So, doctors have been killing patients both with ventilators and with antibiotics!

    What a crime! Not one public health official has offered any advice as to how to maintain a healthy immune system, that I have heard.

    I hope Western Medicine takes a good look in the mirror after this.

  10. Yet another effective covid-19 treatment. He uses nebulized steroids (budesonide is his preference) to clear cytokine storms in the lungs. Says nebulization is the key to effective dosing in the affected tissues.
