Another story of a hospital refusing to give a COVID patient Ivermectin, even to the point of watching a patient die, even to the point of defying a court order.
Ivermectin is being called an “alternative treatment.” I don’t see why. What is it an alternative to? There is no treatment for COVID. All the hospital does is supportive care. That is, they administer oxygen and vitamins, then wait to see if you get better. Those who begin to deteriorate are given drugs to maintain their blood pressure. Even if the patient survives at that point, they are likely to lose fingers and toes as a side effect of the blood pressure medication.
I don’t see the harm in giving Ivermectin, especially the ones who are in the final stages. However, there are hospitals all over the country who are refusing, because they would rather play politics than actually save lives.
When we are to the point that medical professionals are actively denying care to patients while watching them die, even to the point that they are defying court orders, then there really is only one remedy.
If my wife were to get sick and the hospital and its staff watched her get sick and die while actively refusing to provide treatment, there would be a list in my pocket of each and every person who killed her. I would then have a close and personal discussion with each of them, so that I could explain to them in unmistakable terms the consequences of this decision.
