Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, October 07, 2021

Jeffrey Smith has died following a lengthy battle with COVID-19. The 51-year-old Fairfield Township man had been in an intensive care unit for months. Smith was diagnosed with COVID-19 on July 9. He was admitted into the hospital six days later and has been on a ventilator for several weeks.

So the guy that the doctors were afraid to give doctor prescribed ivermectin to, died when he was taken off of the drug. In some liberal's fevered dreams, ivermectin was too dangerous and could cause the guys to die....which he did anyway.

The medical establishment and liberals in general should be ashamed of themselves.

Sister takes brother out of hospital to give him ivermectin. He dies. I doubt she feels shame either.

That might be true. I haven't seen any of the homeless junkies dying of COVID. Is it the heroin or is it the sunlight (and vitamin D)?

Did you seriously link to a reddit post which was screen shots from somewhere else that made completely unprovable claims? Sorry, this is the very definition of fake news.

After you awake from your drunken stupor, realize that getting that Pfizer tattoo probably wasn't the best decision, and actually look at the studies, you will realize that you have blood on your hands. Even with the fact you make $1/hour more than a fry cook, your demonizing of ivermectin will be your biggest regret.

I love it. An idiot who probably barely passed high school biology is suddenly an expert and is adept at reading and analyzing studies.

Which we know he's not because the studies themselves state low to moderate strength of evidence. They state it explicitly.

So STFU moron. Stick to being a slumlord.

I can't say definitively that ivermectin would not have helped this man. What I can say is that clinical trials have not produced sufficient evidence to support the claim that it may have. The evidence from his case also does not indicate the drug was helping him during the 2 weeks it was being administered to him. What I can say is that had he been vaccinated then it is a near guarantee that he would not have become critically ill and died from Covid. Jeffrey Smith willfully refused to receive the demonstrated effective preventative treatment against Covid. It wasn't liberals or healthcare workers to blame for Jeffrey Smith's death. It wasn't the judge or Ohio laws either. If fingers must be pointed then the only finger to point is at Jeffrey Smith.

Studies have indicated that Ivermectin was effective during the early stage of covid. By the time the wife asked for it, the patient was already very sick and it's unlikely ivermectin would have been helpful.

What we do know is if the patient had been vaccinated, the chances that he would have had to have been hospitalized would have been very low.

"y the time the wife asked for it, the patient was already very sick and it's unlikely ivermectin would have been helpful."

They testified that while on ivermectin, his ventilator requirement was cut by 50%. They took him off and then he died. Of course, you are correct that by the time he was given it, he was already very sick so it is not possible to say that ivermectin could have saved him. But, with the data from Israel, we know that we will have to treat more vaccinated people that get covid regardless so we need to establish more effective treatment protocols which likely include ivermectin early in the infection.

Um...don't look now, but that's not considered a "good" outcome.

Regardless, anecdotes are relatively worthless without controlled studies.

#22 There are effective treatments for Covid that have data from properly conducted studies to prove. There have been studies of Ivermectin as a Covid treatment, but no benefit was found.

What is your weird obsession with trying to convince people that a de-worming drug works for Covid?

I don't mind your efforts though, you will reduce the number of people gullible enough to believe reich wing talking points.

That is a mis-information. Benefits were found but liberals want to cry about peer review and any other excuse they can find like not using a control group. If you take the example of the Pfizermectin pill, they did the control study and allowed 2+ people to die in their placebo group. That is unconscionable.

"It appears that one of the pivotal, key trials of ivermectin in humans may be an elaborate work of scientific fraud. It's hard to know if the study even happened. If true, this may mean that ivermectin has absolutely no benefit for COVID-19, and 10s of millions of people worldwide have been scammed."
