The Wuhan virus has done unthinkable damage to the country.
Tens of thousands are dead and millions are out of work.
And it turns out that experts were dead wrong about one potentially life-saving coronavirus drug.
There have now been over 2 million cases of the coronavirus in the United States, and 113,000 have died as a result.
Governors and mayors on a power trip have cracked down hard on citizens desperate to resume their lives.
Americans were told they couldn’t go to work while they watched the unemployment total skyrocket to 40 million.
Thousands of small businesses have been lost forever and deaths of despair are on the rise.
What’s more infuriating for these people was they were called monsters for wanting to return to normalcy, meanwhile, the rioting and looting over the murder of Minneapolis resident George Floyd is being excused by politicians, journalists, and politically motivated health experts.
The hypocrisy over the protests is one mistake in a trail of many made by the experts that citizens were scolded to obey.
And now these experts appear to be wrong yet again in a significant way.
Medical journal, The Lancet, published a piece saying that a potential coronavirus treatment which included the use of the antimalarial drug hydroxychloroquine was increasing the risk of heart complications and death in patients.
This study came out after the FDA approved the drug as treatment for the coronavirus and many patients and doctors had anecdotal success with it.
But now Lancet has issued an “expression of concern” over a negative study regarding hydroxychloroquine that was conducted by a dubious company named Surgisphere.
According to The Lancet, “The authors have not adhered to standard practices in the machine learning and statistics community. They have not released their code or data….There was no ethics review.”
If the study was so porous, it makes one wonder how it ended up published in the first place.
The Lancet’s statement continued, “There was no mention of the countries or hospitals that contributed to the data source and no acknowledgments to their contributions. A request to the authors for information on the contributing centres was denied…Data from Australia are not compatible with government reports. Surgisphere have since stated this was an error of classification of one hospital from Asia. This indicates the need for further error checking throughout the database.”
The fearmongering over a potentially life-saving drug was based on a medical journal that published a spurious report.
And it turns out that Surgisphere lied about the number of employees it has – they claim to have 11, but the company’s LinkedIn page only shows a handful – and supposedly one employee is a science fiction writer and another an adult content model.
The other employees listed have no scientific bona fides.
This was the basis for the media’s scurrilous attacks on Donald Trump showing optimism about the drug and admitting he’d taken it himself.
The so-called mainstream media and the experts should be ashamed of themselves for peddling such fake news.
