Trump’s Covid Infection Curable – Not by Toxic Experimental Drugs
by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)
There’s nothing unusual about Trump falling ill from exposure to the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes Covid disease — notably because of his close contact to numerous people daily.
Millions of Americans and countless others worldwide contract seasonal flu/influenza.
It happens annually with no fear-mongering mass hysteria, no mandated or voluntary house arrest, no mass shutdowns of businesses — no economic collapse that’s happening in the US and elsewhere.
According to Trump’s physician Dr. Sean Conley, he experienced a mild cough, nasal congestion, fatigue, and a low-grade fever that came down, adding:
He’s “cautiously optimistic” about his condition, saying as well that he’s “not yet out of the woods.”
According to medical experts, Covid disease can worsen days after contracting it.
Initial mild symptoms can become more serious.
According to reports by Trump’s doctors, he’s being treated with two experimental drugs — remdesivir and a neutralizing antibody cocktail.
If true, he’s playing Russian roulette with his health, notably because a proved effective Covid disease treatment exists.
When used as directed, hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) combined with either azithromycin or doxycycline and zinc is highly effective in treating Covid-infected individuals when administered within around 10 days of being diagnosed with the disease.
Everyone infected with Covid disease should be treated with this protocol.
No one should use potentially toxic experimental drugs. No responsible medical providers should prescribe them.
If reports are accurate, both drugs administered to Trump received emergency FDA authorization for his use.
Neither one cures Covid disease.
Earlier, Thailand Medical News (TMN) said “Americans are getting their lives placed (at) risk (because) the US FDA…rapidly approved remdesivir as a drug to treat COVID-19 despite conflicting study results, and the fact that the drug does not clearly demonstrate any specific efficacy against the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus,” adding:
Use of the drug in trials “show(ed) hepatoxicity effects coupled with even slight indications of nephrotoxicity and even cardiotoxicity, and there are insufficient studies to demonstrate its safety on humans.”
Claims by the US National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases that use of the drug shortens hospitalizations for Covid-infected individuals are dubious at best.
The conclusion was based on use of the drug by small numbers of patients with the disease, far too few to be meaningful.
According to the WHO, remdesivir used in the study failed to improve patients’ health or reduce pathogens in their blood.
The FDA endorsed “an unproven but toxic drug,” TMN stressed — defying medical ethics and patient safety.
If widely marketed following its use by Trump, it’ll be a potentially large-scale experiment that may be harmful to countless numbers of Covid-infected patients.
The same may be true for Regeneron Pharmaceuticals’ experimental neutralizing antibody cocktail administered to Trump — if reports are accurate.
These drugs may potentially be more harmful by administering them in combination.
Big Pharma-controlled FDA has a history of approving inadequately tested drugs.
In her book titled “The Truth About the Drug Companies,” former New England Journal of Medicine editor Dr. Marcia Angell said the following:
Big Pharma is “primarily a marketing machine to sell drugs of dubious benefits, using its wealth and power to co-opt every institution that might stand in its way, including the US Congress, the (FDA), academic medical centers, and the medical profession itself.”
Maximizing profits is prioritized over human health.
Despite US federal law requiring that FDA approved drugs must be “safe and effective,” Public Citizen’s Health Research Group revealed otherwise, explaining:
Meds that “don’t work” get approved. Virtually all drugs have labels that warn of potential hazardous to human health side effects.
Enough drugs in combination with each other increase the risk more greatly.
An estimated 100,000 American die annually from the toxic side effects of prescription drugs.
On October 3, TMN warned that remdesivir “causes kidney problems,” adding:
“An urgent immediate safety review of…remdesivir (was) called by the European Medicines Agency after numerous COVID-19 patients taking the drug developed serious kidney problems.”
The EU regulator said the drug appears to cause “acute kidney disease.”
Medical authorities in some EU countries are halting remdesivir’s use until more safety studies are conducted.
So far, no longterm safety studies on the drug were conducted in the US or elsewhere.
According to TMN, profiteers in the US called “Scientists to Stop COVID-19” were behind remdesivir’s rapid approval.
Last week, Trump’s physician Dr. Sean Conley said he received a single dose of Regeneron’s antibody cocktail (REGN-COV2 – perhaps more at Walter Reed) along with remdesivir.
If Trump is being treated with these drugs in lieu of the HCQ combination explained above, he may or may not recover fully from Covid infection.
He’ll be vulnerable to other serious health issues that at his age (74) and obesity (around 240 lbs.) may be life-threatening over the short or longer-term.
