“The HighWire” host Del Bigtree and guest Tess Lawrie talked about why there is little news about the controversial drug ivermectin.
“For me, ivermectin is actually the key to unlocking all the secrets of this pandemic,” Lawrie said during the March 4 episode of “The HighWire.” “There would have been no lockdowns, there would have been no masking or any of that necessary because ivermectin is really good at reducing transmission.”
In the last two years, the government and mainstream media clamped down on ivermectin, which has been called a “miracle cure” against the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19). Big Pharma and the government shut it down in favor of dangerous, untested vaccines.
National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) Director Anthony Fauci is one of the big players in flushing ivermectin out of the radar.
Lawrie, a bioethics specialist and research consultant, shared her concern about the lack of evidence to support the strategies that the authorities are recommending to mitigate COVID-19.
Pierre Kory, president of the Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance (FLCCC Alliance), testified at a Senate hearing in December 2020 about looking into early outpatient COVID-19 treatment using the already expansive and still rapidly emerging medical evidence on ivermectin.
“We have evidence that ivermectin is effective, not only in prophylaxis, in the prevention. If you take it you will not get sick,” he said, adding that the drug has immense and potent antiviral activity.
Data showed that ivermectin was able to prevent COVID-19 and keep early symptoms from progressing to the hyper-inflammatory phase, and can even help critically ill patients to recover.
Kory said at the time that doctors trying to save lives considered the lack of governmental guidance and research on effective early home preventive treatments unconscionable, considering that hospitals have been overflowing with patients.
Ivermectin should be used for both COVID prevention and treatment
Lawrie herself said that it was clear ivermectin was likely a game-changer that should be used for both prevention and treatment. (Related: Japanese study finds that ivermectin is “safe and effective” for treating covid.)
Moreover, ivermectin was on the World Health Organization‘s (WHO) list as an essential medicine. In reports, ivermectin was shown to reduce inflammation and speed up viral clearance, so it can get rid of viruses quickly. In studies with severe infection, there was a 75 percent reduction in mortality in ivermectin users.
But instead of promoting something that seemed to be showing a lot of success, the government with the help of a non-governmental organization that collaborated with the WHO, influenced the conclusion of the studies involving ivermectin.
In the U.S., the use of ivermectin can take away a doctor’s license. It has become a sort of flashpoint in people’s lives, and the government wants them to agree to defer using it as treatment, essentially destroying ivermectin. (Related: Secret documents reveal FDA’s attack on Ivermectin.)
“So there would have been no emergency use authorization of experimental novel treatments. And that includes the new gene-based vaccines. So, if you want to understand what COVID is all about, then you’ve got to start with ivermectin. And that really unlocks the whole mystery.”
Bigtree added: “We’re going to need an investigation into what to me could lead to crimes against humanity, there was a known solution, a miracle drug if you will, that could have saved millions of lives. And it was purposely stopped by some group of people or health departments, then we’ve really got to question the motives there.”
