Dr. Anthony Fauci, head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), is casting doubt on studies showing that hydroxychloroquine can be an effective COVID-19 treatment.
“We know from another study (corticosteroids) gives benefit in reducing deaths with advanced disease,” Fauci said during a House subcommittee hearing on Friday.
“That study is a flawed study, and I think anyone who examines it carefully is that it is not a randomized placebo-controlled trial,” Fauci added, meaning that he wants the feds to sanction a Big Pharma-approved study on hydroxychloroquine.
When Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer (R-MO) interjected that the study conducted the Henry Ford Health System was peer reviewed, Fauci denigrated the peer review process that is typically vaunted by academics, intellectuals and experts.
“It doesn’t matter, you can peer-review something that’s a bad study,” Fauci said in response.
“The fact is it is not a randomized placebo-controlled trial. The point that I think is important, because we all want to keep an open mind, any and all of the randomized placebo-controlled trials, which is the gold standard of determining if something is effective, none of them have shown any efficacy for hydroxychloroquine,” he added.
Fauci does not seem to be as concerned about vaccines. He is calling for COVID-19 vaccines to be synthesized as quickly as possible and is downplaying the potential risks.
“From everything we’ve seen now — in the animal data, as well as the human data — we feel cautiously optimistic that we will have a vaccine by the end of this year and as we go into 2021,” Fauci said at the same subcommittee hearing. “I don’t think it’s dreaming.”
Big League Politics has reported on how Fauci is considering unethical human experimentation, actually infecting people with COVID-19 purposefully, in his mad rush to get vaccine shots into the public:
Scientists are actually considering purposefully infecting patients with COVID-19, as part of a supposed “human challenge trial” that would help them synthesize a vaccine for mass production, the New York Times has reported.
The Times argues that vaccine researchers have performed similar human experimentation with malaria, cholera and typhoid in the past. However, they note that the process could be dangerous because of the contagious nature of COVID-19 and the fact that there is no cure for the virus.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has stopped short at endorsing human challenge trials. They issued a report created by a 19-member advisory panel last month in which they offered recommendations regarding the safety of such trials though. The virus would be dripped into the noses of patients in order to infect them with COVID-19.
The National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), led by the infamous Dr. Anthony Fauci, is working to develop viral strains that could be used in these studies to infect patients. However, Fauci does not anticipate that these type of experiments would be necessary given the large number of individuals already infected with the virus.
Fauci does not rule out the possibility though. He said that any human challenge trial must be conducted “with absolute intense examination by a group of independent ethicists and independent people who have nothing to do with the trial.”
While Fauci entertains the idea of conducting these controversial trials, the National Institutes of Health (NIH), which oversees NIAID and other health-related bureaucracies, has come out firmly against the proposal.
Fauci’s Mengelean megalomania is more dangerous to Americans than COVID-19 itself.
Alameda County, California Will PAY Those Who Test Positive for Coronavirus $1,250
Bad Idea Hall of Fame?
A northern California county has approved a trial plan to pay anyone who tests positive for the coronavirus disease $1,250, with the idea that paying them to stay home is the only way to deter them from spreading the disease.
Alameda county supervisors are arguing that it’s the only way to prevent people from spreading the disease. “Many of them just could not afford to lose two weeks’ worth of wages to quarantine and isolate,” said policy director Vanessa Cedeño.
It’s unclear how Alameda County plans to deal with the prospect of individuals intentionally contracting coronavirus with the promise of filing for unemployment and receiving the county’s generous stipend for a positive diagnosis. The trial plan does require documentation of a positive test to receive the payment.
The plan may be geared towards illegal immigrants, as county supervisors are maintaining immigration status may not be taken into account. Recipients of the payment also can’t be receiving unemployment benefits, but it’s unclear how the county government plans to verify this.
The plan could unwitting set off a firestorm of coronavirus within the county, incentivizing hundreds or thousands of young and healthy people to intentionally procure the disease, acquire antibodies to it, and secure a Alameda County check in doing so.
There’s a strong case to be made for renewed unemployment payments, another round of TrumpBux-style payments(possibly recurring), or even more social safety measures in the duration of the coronavirus epidemic, but paying individuals on the mere basis of a coronavirus diagnosis could be a strong contender for induction into the Bad Ideas Hall of Fame.
