Israeli scientist says COVID-19 could be treated for under $1/day

Double-blind study shows ivermectin reduces disease’s duration and infectiousness • FDA and WHO caution against its use .

In Schwartz’s study, some 89 eligible volunteers over the age of 18 who were diagnosed with coronavirus and staying in state-run COVID-19 hotels were divided into two groups: 50% received ivermectin, and 50% received a placebo, according to their weight. They were given the pills for three days in a row, an hour before a meal.
The volunteers were tested using a standard nasopharyngeal swab PCR test with the goal of evaluating whether there was a reduction in viral load by the sixth day – the third day after termination of the treatment. They were swabbed every two days.

Nearly 72% of volunteers treated with ivermectin tested negative for the virus by day six. In contrast, only 50% of those who received the placebo tested negative.

IN ADDITION, the study looked at culture viability, meaning how infectious the patients were, and found that only 13% of ivermectin patients were infectious after six days, compared with 50% of the placebo group – almost four times as many.

“Our study shows first and foremost that ivermectin has antiviral activity,” Schwartz said. “It also shows that there is almost a 100% chance that a person will be noninfectious in four to six days, which could lead to shortening isolation time for these people. This could have a huge economic and social impact.”

The study appeared on the MedRxiv health-research sharing site. It has not yet been peer reviewed.

Bill Gates has major shares in both Pfizer & BioNTech, and an FOI has revealed he is the primary funder of the MHRA

An investigation has revealed that the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation are the primary funders of the UK’s Medicine & Healthcare products Regulatory Agency, and that the Foundation also owns major shares in both Pfizer and BioNTech.

The Medicine & Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) extended the emergency authorisation of the Pfizer / BioNTech mRNA jab in the UK to allow it to be given to children between the ages of 12 – 15 on the 4th June 2021.

At the time, the Chief Executive of the MHRA, Dr June Raine said the MHRA had “carefully reviewed clinical trial data in children aged 12 to 15 years and have concluded that the Pfizer vaccine is safe and effective in this age group and that the benefits outweigh any risk”.

We are left wondering if Dr June Raine and the MHRA have even read the results of the extremely short and small study. If they have then they would have seen that 86% of children in the study suffered an adverse reaction ranging from mild to extremely serious.

Just 1,127 children took part of the trial, however only 1,097 children completed the trial, with 30 of them not participating after being given the first dose of the Pfizer jab. The results do not state why the 30 children did not go on to complete the trial.

The information is publicly available and contained within an FDA fact sheet which can be viewed here (see page 25, table 5 on-wards).

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation also “coincidentally” bought $55 million worth of shares in BioNTech in September 2019, just before the alleged Covid-19 pandemic struck.

I knew that they had invested in both companies, but not that about the regulatory agency. Info on the Pfizer trials for young-uns seems interesting to say the least.

I did know much of the information in this article on how the FDA routinely allows bad drugs to be approved and how hard it is to get them off the market when they start harming and killing people.

As pharma companies underwrite three-fourths of the FDA’s budget for scientific reviews, the agency is increasingly fast-tracking expensive drugs with significant side effects and unproven health benefits.

Nuplazid, a drug for hallucinations and delusions associated with Parkinson’s disease, failed two clinical trials. In a third trial, under a revised standard for measuring its effect, it showed minimal benefit. Overall, more patients died or had serious side effects on Nuplazid than after receiving no treatment.

Patients on Uloric, a gout drug, suffered more heart attacks, strokes and heart failure in two out of three trials than did their counterparts on standard or no medication.

Nevertheless, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved both of these drugs — with a deadly aftermath. Uloric’s manufacturer reported last November that patients on the drug were 34 percent more likely to die from heart disease than people taking an alternative gout medication. And since the FDA fast-tracked approval of Nuplazid and it went on the market in 2016 at a price of $24,000 a year, there have been 6,800 reports of adverse events for patients on the drug, including 887 deaths as of this past March 31.

The FDA is increasingly green-lighting expensive drugs despite dangerous or little-known side effects and inconclusive evidence that they curb or cure disease. Once widely assailed for moving slowly, today the FDA reviews and approves drugs faster than any other regulatory agency in the world. Between 2011 and 2015, the FDA reviewed new drug applications more than 60 days faster on average than did the European Medicines Agency.

The FDA is going to give full approval

Revisiting the number of deaths from Covid. It’s over 600,000 according to whoever is keeping track, but how many died from it opposed to those who died with it on board?

@QMS to see if we could get the orders to get to us here in France. They took awhile, we paid duty, but heck we got them. We ordered 12 mg. Our protocol is the FLCCC essentially.
We are pretty vulnerable, so we are trying to do everything we can.
- 24 mg Sunday and Thursday at evening meal. It's fat soluble, so food helps get it into the system.
- FLCCC Vit D3, Zinc, B12, Vit C (500-1200mg 1x daily), Aloe Vera and L-Lysine (for inflammation). Allergic to Quercitin, but looking for other bioflavinoids like dark berries.
- FLCCC Provodine (three or four drops) iodine into a small mug of iodine free sea salt in water. It should taste like the ocean and the Provodine should not be so strong it irritates or burns. Using a large syringe, wash eyes, inhale one nostril at a time (does not cause a problem, just snort); then gargle as low in the throat as possible with a low humming sound to activate the Vagus Nerve which tends to quiet as we get older.

We have a mug, salt, spoons syringes (like the vets use to irrigate) Provodine, and bottle of non-chlorinated water at the ready. To be really good about it we should use it before we go out as it forms a barrier on the mucus membranes and kills virus particles as they come in. We tend to use it after any contact with people at our house or at a store.

If we can't get pill form Ivermectin/Stromectol, we will get the horse paste. People are getting quite aware of this protocol, so the run on it is getting intense. Supplies may be less available. Thanks LO for the table and confirmation.

We really don't want to get sick but if we do we figure from what we've heard, this will be the way for the lightest infection. I wouldn't mind somehow getting natural immunity. But not willing to gamble.

As to horse paste ivermectin, hey it is exactly the same stuff used in human medication. If you can't get a script, or your pharmacist refuses to fill your prescription (yes they've been doing so) I would use the horse formulation. Not advice just my opinion. You can purchase it at any farm supply for about $10/tube (which typically contains 112 mg of ivermectin)

I have the pills and know others that have taken the paste. It's affordable. It works.

The FLCCC has a tab with doctors who will give you ivermectin:

I looked at their dorsal fins compared to the grey one, and at the skin, it looks like chemical contact to me. God help me, I hope I'm wrong.

I have written elsewhere that I fished the PNW coastal waters especially Barkley Sound BC from 1975 to 1990 or so. I remember the first Black Mouth (King, Tyee,Chinook) we pulled in, cleaned and filleted on board which had round worm-like parasites in its skin.

Chinook were the Sequoia gigantea of fish: no pests, or diseases, good fat, super meat. Seeing a diseased fish was a warning. We actually got that it was in reaction to changing sea conditions.

I quit fishing a couple of years later. I had seen year around runs of seven year return fish to two year go extinct just as I came into the fishing life. Heartbreaking.

We are listening to Leonard Bernstein's Mahler Second Symphony 1963 with the New York Phil.

We listen to a guy named David Hurwitz. He's hard to listen to at first, but after you get used to his grating voice and connect with his enthusiasm, he's funny, smart, thorough and worth the time. He's a Tam Tam player, and of course comments on percussion. The fifth movement of this symphony, oooh the harp, and waiting for the big bell bar chimes toward the end. It reminds me of Richard Strauss: complex, shifts from full orchestra to small sections, shifts from bombastic to sweet, atonal to lyric in a heartbeat. This recording is one of his top picks.

First of all he is NOT the inventor of the mRNA treatment. Second, I followed a link to a twitter post he made about the issue of the dangers of the mRNA (prion disease, etc) and he directed people to this site to back up his arguments... Technocracy News and Trends. This site also often posts his writings. So I looked up the background of this site and this is what I found...

History
Founded in 2015 by author Patrick Wood, Technocracy News is a conspiracy and pseudoscience website that reports on technology, and its supposed dangers that lead to government control. According to the about page, Patrick Wood describes himself as “An economist by education, a financial analyst and writer by profession and an American Constitutionalist by choice; Wood maintains a Biblical world view and has deep historical insights into the modern attacks on sovereignty, property rights, and personal freedom. Such attacks are epitomized by the implementation of U.N. policies such as Agenda 21, Sustainable Development, Smart Growth, and in education, the widespread adoption of Common Core State Standards.”

There are now multiple articles debunking this guy. I would really encourage people here to take a closer look at all this.

to make mRNA work in mice. Katalin Karikó wanted to "go further". It is described in the link you provided.

Malone has repeatedly told the story how he used DNA luciferase expression vector. The light emitted could be picked by a sensitive detector to prove how long it lasted in vivo. This obviously predates Karikó. He has admitted dozens of people/companies then started experimenting with this new technology.

The story of mRNA: How a once-dismissed idea became a leading technology in the Covid vaccine race
...
Before messenger RNA was a multibillion-dollar idea, it was a scientific backwater. And for the Hungarian-born scientist behind a key mRNA discovery, it was a career dead-end.

Katalin Karikó spent the 1990s collecting rejections. Her work, attempting to harness the power of mRNA to fight disease, was too far-fetched for government grants, corporate funding, and even support from her own colleagues.

It all made sense on paper. In the natural world, the body relies on millions of tiny proteins to keep itself alive and healthy, and it uses mRNA to tell cells which proteins to make. If you could design your own mRNA, you could, in theory, hijack that process and create any protein you might desire — antibodies to vaccinate against infection, enzymes to reverse a rare disease, or growth agents to mend damaged heart tissue.

In 1990, researchers at the University of Wisconsin managed to make it work in mice. Karikó wanted to go further.

Direct gene transfer into mouse muscle in vivo
1990 Mar 23
J A Wolff 1 , R W Malone, P Williams, W Chong, G Acsadi, A Jani, P L Felgner

Abstract

RNA and DNA expression vectors containing genes for chloramphenicol acetyltransferase, luciferase, and beta-galactosidase were separately injected into mouse skeletal muscle in vivo. Protein expression was readily detected in all cases, and no special delivery system was required for these effects. The extent of expression from both the RNA and DNA constructs was comparable to that obtained from fibroblasts transfected in vitro under optimal conditions. In situ cytochemical staining for beta-galactosidase activity was localized to muscle cells following injection of the beta-galactosidase DNA vector. After injection of the DNA luciferase expression vector, luciferase activity was present in the muscle for at least 2 months.

It is Dr. Katalin Karikó and her collaborator Dr. Drew Weissman who are more commonly credited with laying the groundwork for mRNA vaccines.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, "mRNA vaccines teach our cells how to make a protein—or even just a piece of a protein—that triggers an immune response inside our bodies." mRNA vaccines are a new sort of vaccine; the COVID-19 vaccines from Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna were the first.

On his personal website, Twitter, and LinkedIn, Dr. Robert Malone has been promoting himself as the inventor of mRNA vaccines. This is misleading. In 1989, Malone published a paper titled "Cationic liposome-mediated RNA transfection." While this paper is an example of his important contribution to the then-emerging field, it does not make him the inventor of mRNA vaccines.
According to Stat News, "for decades, scientists have dreamed about the seemingly endless possibilities of custom-made messenger RNA or mRNA." According to the New York Times, "For her entire career, Dr. Kariko has focused on messenger RNA, or mRNA — the genetic script that carries DNA instructions to each cell’s protein-making machinery. She was convinced mRNA could be used to instruct cells to make their own medicines, including vaccines."

While Malone's research may have been important, scientific breakthroughs don't always boast a sole "inventor." Instead, they come about through the work of many.

UPDATE: Malone reached out to Logically, stating that he did not invent the mRNA vaccines, but instead the "vaccine technology platform." He also presented us with copies of nine patents – none of which showed that he invented the mRNA vaccines. The judgment for the claim has not changed.

Please take the time to read this...https://www.logically.ai/articles/scientists-vs-science-interviews-with-...

From the interview..."Malone shared with me a series of emails between his wife, Karikó, and himself. In March of this year, Malone’s wife Dr. Jill Glasspool sent Karikó an article in the New England Journal of Medicine, accusing her of erasing Malone from history. (The article was written by Dr. Angela Desmond and Dr. Paul Offit.)

Karikó replied that she acknowledges Malone and especially Felgner for their research, and cites them in her papers, even thanking Malone alongside a few others in the acknowledgments section of one. She also said that the first to use mRNA vaccines were a group of French researchers working on influenza in the early 90s, which is when she herself had been working on them. The exchange escalates through to June, with Karikó eventually asking them both to stop sending “threatening letters.”

I'm sorry but ever since I watched him in an interview, I had an uncomfortable feeling about him. He is an anti-vaxxer (says he got trolled into getting the Moderna shots because he wanted to travel). who is trying to scare people out of getting mRNA vaccines with a lot of disproven claims.

Be careful what you believe.
My view on it is that if the right wing "nutjoboshere" promotes it = not true
Here is a LINK to a peer reviewed meta-analysis study

A meta-analysis is a statistical analysis that combines the results of multiple scientific studies to determine what the overall scientific literature has found about a treatment or intervention.

From the conclusions;

We found in our systematic review that, compared with SOC or placebo, IVM did not reduce primary outcomes (all-cause mortality rate, LOS, and AEs) or secondary outcomes (SARS-CoV-2 clearance in respiratory samples, and SAEs) in RCTs of patients with mostly mild COVID-19 disease. The QoE was low or very low for all outcomes. Results of subgroup analyses by severity of COVID-19 disease or RoB were mostly consistent with those of the main analyses, except for a significant effect on all-cause mortality rate in 3 RCTs with high RoB.
