This is the common sense we can’t listen to. Give this video 5 minutes.
Yesterday, Australia’s Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) banned general practitioners from prescribing Ivermectin as a treatment for Sars-Cov-2 and Covid-19.
This decision was made by the Advisory Committee on Medicines Scheduling (ACMS).
This committee comprises three pharmacists, a pharmacologist, a sports physician, an accountant and a pharmaceutical company tout. No clinician or infectious disease expert appears to have been directly involved in this decision. There is nothing on the TGA website to contradict this understanding.
Lie Number 2 There are no safe and effective Covid-19 treatments
This is simply untrue. A more open public debate would expose this fraud. There are many well-credentialled, intelligent and capable medical professionals who are excluded by media. Unsocial Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Google play their part too.
For example, you may well find links blocked by the Google’s Chrome or its partner YouTube on this site. If you do, choose another browser.
Essential and obvious questions are neither asked nor tolerated; even questions our excluded experts might easily answer. Instead, we get the bleating of well-connected celebrity medics and a media committed to stenography rather than investigative journalism.
This is a patriotic time. Especially, with all these people injected and feeling pretty good about themselves. Some curmudgeons would call them smug. Not me. I simply want a bit of that admiration. With this in mind I want to put myself forward, and only me, as part of an experiment.
Alfred Hospital in Melbourne is using a new anti-viral drug, Favipirivir, in an experiment involving 120 people. The one I’m proposing will be much cheaper. The Melbourne experiment requires participants to take 18 tablets one day and 8 the next. You’d feel like putting a lid on yourself. Again, my test will use much less.
Every morning Sydney hosts its 11am Covid-19 ritual. New South Wales Premier Gladys solemnly records the newly infected, newly hospitalised, ICU entrants and the dead. Our chief health officer, Kerry Chant, performs a short liturgy: “Test…Isolate”. These announcements are then reannounced in various formulations over the next half hour interspersed with urgent calls for us to vaccinate. The media then asks the same questions it did yesterday using today’s numbers. This allows for further reannouncements and even more urgent calls for us to be vaccinated. We are also reminded that this is the only way out of lockdown. Other Australian states go through a similar daily process.
As an unvaccinated person, the liturgy is of particular interest to me. In my uninfected state my main concern is to avoid Delta. If it is as dangerous as we’re told, it will come looking for me. It will then be time to action the “Test……Isolate” strategy. Let’s say I find myself in an exposure zone or one comes here, I’ll need a PCR test. If the PCR test works and I remain uninfected then I get on with my useless life.
Yet, if the test works and I become both an infected and infector, it will be time to implement part 2 of Kerry’s “Test……Isolate” plan. Go straight to my meticulously designed isolation chamber with the ensuite and stay there awaiting further instructions. This is easy if you’re living by yourself especially if you’re a doomsday prepper. The rest of us will be relying on family or housemates to keep us fed and in contact with the rest of the world.
So you’re in the isolation chamber having completed your “Test….Isolate” civic duty. Covid-19, from hereon known as Spike, is happy because no-one has interfered with his plan to raise a family and move to your lungs. This is where Kerry’s plan seems to be short an action or two. It was this concern that prompted me to go looking for the rest of Covid-19 survival manual.
I don’t have a medical background Yet, why should this disbar me from commenting on the state of the present politically and now military driven Covid-19 response. We have some incredibly sycophantic, uninformed members of the media doing exactly that right now. Other players seem to have stridently anti-social views and agendas. I am not denying Covid-19 can have extreme adverse effects on people who contract it. I do believe our response would be improved by broadening participation to include clinicians and experts who are not so tightly wedded to the vaccine or nothing outlook. The discussion that follows is based on my experience as a resident of Australia’s most populous state, New South Wales.
