From the ‘Can’t Fix Stupid’ files……
AS the pandemic ravages the world there have been a wealth of ‘snake oil’ salesmen that have pushed one faux cure over and over….even the leader of the free world pushed the idea of injections of bleach as a cure…..
I have read an equally stupid cure….
the Springfield News-Leader released a blistering fact-check of Springfield City Councilor Angela Romine, who caused a stir on Monday when she claimed that COVID-19 already has multiple cures so there’s no need to get vaccinated.
“We’re not prescribing a certain prescription because it’s for off-label use, which could help people that are sick with COVID, and it’s not being used because it was politicized… and demonized,” said Romine in a speech to the council. “Right now we’re trying even a vaccine that has severe side effects, but we’re not willing to try a protocol that has helped people. One doctor even came out and said she’s treated 900 patients and she’s had zero deaths, yet we’re not prescribing them here.”
According to the report, she later clarified that the two drugs she meant are hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin.
ivermectin is a drug primarily used on livestock to remove parasites. It is not an antiviral drug,” said the report. “One study concluded it was beneficial to treat COVID, but ‘the study was retracted for plagiarism and for incorrect interpretation of data,’ Dr. Nancy Yoon, chief medical officer with the Springfield-Greene County Health Department, told the News-Leader last week. Calling the drug ‘unsafe and dangerous,’ Yoon said she believed no ‘doctor is recommending it to patients.'”
Are people really this stupid?
Or is she just passing on research?
To be fair….there is some proof that this drug may have some ‘beneficial’ results….this is a blog post that gives the research….
You decide if you want to buy into this ‘cure’….personally I will take my chances with the vaccine.
There has got to be something that can be done to people that offer unqualified medical advice.
