In a press conference streamed Oct. 27 on the Life Site News website, a parade of speakers described “coordinated plans” that are restricting nutrition to COVID patients, keeping family members from visiting them, and denying them “vital” medicines that aid their recovery.
"Patients' civil rights, human rights, and families' rights to be with their loved ones during hospitalizations have just literally been thrown out the window," Dr. Elizabeth Lee Vliet, who leads the Truth for Health Foundation, said at the press conference.
Attorney and patient advocate Ali Shultz denounced hospitals that are pushing for COVID patients to be treated with Remdesivir.
That drug is used in monoclonal treatments which use antibodies to attack the China-born virus. Monoclonal treatment itself was unfairly described as a controversial, experiment-like treatment earlier this year and, more recently, the alleged side effects of Remdesivir have caused concerns among those who otherwise defend monoclonal treatment.
"It's known to cause kidney toxicity and failure, which ultimately leads to more pulmonary congestion," said Schultz. "I feel like this is really part of a scam.”
Dr. Bryan Ardis advised people to get their affairs in order and take documents with them if they go to a hospital for treatment.
"If you ever consider taking yourself or a loved one because you feel the threat of life is coming to an end, and you need to go to a hospital,” he advised, “you better be armed with a few things: An advanced medical directive; a medical power of attorney; and the chart from NIH that shows Ivermectin is just as approved by Remdesivir is.”
Medical doctors are under pressure to refuse prescribing Ivermectin, which began as a veterinary medicine for treating parasites in livestock. Medical researchers won a Nobel Prize for creating a human version that is common in Third World countries but that fact has been ignored or twisted by the media and much of the public that is openly critical of any treatment other than The Jab.
Ivermectin's use for COVID patients has split the medical community but anecdotal success stories from patients, and official medical documentation showing its promising effects, are making that hesitancy harder to defend.
"Their job is to do no harm but try to preserve life and save your life," Ardis said of medical professionals, "and that's exactly what we are trying to do."
