Excellent analysis and points...this is what the lay people can't understand science and pharma regulatory process. Sadly, the press runs with whatever conclusion from a snippet in the claims of a study make, rather than critique the papers. Same happened for every fake 95% effectiveness claim. At this point, I have no confidence in the FDA or any other regulatory agency and sadly, many will be hurt.

I can’t get past that they let some people die on a placebo.

Do we know what the vaccine status of the trial participants was?

From what I gather they want to use the vaccines and these antivirals together.

Covid 19 or the Chinese Flue variant BS shmozel have well and truly ERODED all confidence in a whole array of professionals,to state a few ;






Law professionals


The list is so long, that I fear the very fabric of society have been torn apart.

The only way out of this misery now is to start accepting that The Whole west minister system must be torn down and rebuilt with a new blood.

There is No way we can have our crooked politicos run this shit show

and expect a vibrant and advance society.

It is a do or die kind of dilemma.

"Because that’s the standard of care for early COVID-19: go home, incubate, get sick, and die if you must. But don’t call us until you are seriously ill."

It's appalling. And true. I know, because my elderly, double-vaxxed parents got COVID this summer, and this is what they told (not the "die if you must" part). They languished at home for 10 days with no treatment, getting sicker and sicker. I was frantic, I offered to drive to them with my personal stash of Ivermectin, but they were convinced (by the FDA website) that it was poison. Fortunately, they did not die, but it was in spite of, not because of, the healthcare system.

Some day, America will look back on this period and be sickened by what is happening and how people are literally being murdered by the intentional lack of care for sick patients, all to support either the pharma industry or the political agenda. Not certain of which it is.

I'd be looking at the adjuvant in the placebo group. That sounds to me like murder.

What I find also annoying is that the FDA mocked people taking Ivermectin because it was horse medicine, but it's okay to charge 700 dollars for Molnupiravir, which is also horse medicine.

While we are pointing out

MERCK’S many flaws, y’all look into the VIOXX debacle. MERCK lied abt data and between 15.000-60,000 were killed and thousands had to undergo open heart surgery! MERCK, “safely

& effectively leading people to their death”.
