Here’s a sampling of some of the more “interesting” conversations I’m having nowadays. I’ll add to this over time. I’ve omitted names to protect the sources when appropriate.
December 16, 2021: After the Together trial results were published in the Lancet showing a 12X mortality benefit, the NIH subsequently claimed in their COVID Treatment Guidelines that fluvoxamine doesn’t work and refused to recommend it. I talked with three researchers who were familiar with the drug and they all said that the NIH decision was “disappointing.” I asked them if they would express this on camera and they all said “No.” Clearly, they don’t want to jeopardize future NIH grants. That tells you everything you need to know, doesn’t it?
December 19, 2021: I asked a surgeon in NY what people in NY thought about the proposed law to force quarantine people. I asked “Do people know? or are clueless?” He wrote, “Probably both and afraid bc people getting fired as I was threatened. So the focus is on working and probably not on this craziness. I will tell you the more conflicting the data, the more they and many docs double down but this is terrifying and if anyone hears I say anything you’re immediately labeled and then fired for not being part of the culture. I’m trying to figure out how to help while maintaining a career as a surgeon as I feel all of this is insanity and the data is pathetically biased and manipulated and dangerous especially for healthcare moving forward. If you can think of a way I can help please let me know. ”
December 19, 2021: It looks like the CDC is making very sure that nobody breaks ranks. One of my friends with connections with whistleblowers inside the CDC wrote, “Also, my friends [inside the CDC] are completely radio silent now. Cowards, when it comes down to fighting they clearly don’t have what it takes. They even stopped checking on my health while I was in the hospital.”
