Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson: 'Biden’s Failure to Promote Early Treatment ‘Cost Hundreds of Thousands of Lives’'

by Paul Alexander

His failure to direct federal health agencies to research and recommend early treatment has cost hundreds of thousands of lives. His coercive mandates and other actions failed to end the pandemic

“Biden has committed huge amounts of taxpayer money to enrich Pfizer and Moderna by giving ‘free’ pills to persons who test positive for COVID,” said Jane Orient, M.D., executive director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS), in comments to The Star News Network.

“It is good that the federal government has finally recognized that COVID is treatable, especially early,” Orient acknowledged, but added the following notes:

  1. Early, affordable treatment has been available for nearly two years, but both information and availability were suppressed. Hundreds of thousands of patients probably died needlessly.

  2. Treatment is best given as early as possible–delaying to wait for a positive test could prove fatal.

  3. Tests are unreliable, giving both false positives and false negatives.

  4. COVID likely requires sequential, multi-drug treatment, not a single magic bullet.

  5. Paxlovid is a protease inhibitor combined with an anti-HIV drug (ritonavir) to prolong its action. Ritonavir has many potentially serious drug-drug interactions. Ivermectin is a more effective protease inhibitor, which has 19 additional beneficial actions.

  6. Merck’s molnupiravir induces mutations and could cause both birth defects and cancer.

  7. Hydroxychloroquine, ivermectin, and other re-purposed drugs have an excellent safety record in hundreds of millions of patients over decades.
