Anthony Fauci Shares ‘Positive’ Results from New Trial on the Drug Remdesivir

Townhall.

“[The study data] shows that remdesivir has a clear-cut, significant positive effect in diminishing the time to recovery;” National Allergy Institute of Infectious Diseases Director Dr. Anthony Fauci revealed at the White House on Wednesday.

Well good.  I’m glad that could work out for Gilead.  It’s an awesome thing to see big Pharma cash in on this.  I’m sure that nothing else works.  That is, I feel certain that Fauci would tell you this is the only therapeutic that is successful at bringing any relief for patients.

    This study is rightfully criticized for being a “single arm” trial. There’s no placebo control arm of the investigation. Ironically, that’s the same criticism he levied at the HCQ RESULTS.

    Almost makes me wonder if he has some other motivations

    @Cancemi,

    That’s part of the difficulty of doing this kind of research on the fly. Control groups.

    It’s unethical to subject people to a disease when you think you may have a therapeutic for it, even for volunteers. Normally, these kinds of studies are done in epidemiological land with things like worker exposure to Benzene, hexane, organophosphate esters or other toxicants.

    But then again, that’s the same thing he’s demanding of HCQ. Right? That professionals do something unethical (as opposed to lab investigations over the long haul with primates, pigs or mice).

    Yes, there’s something amiss, and for this, you have to follow the money. Always follow the money. Fauci and Gates are heavily invested in this solution. Follow the money.

    George Webb has good investigations on this.

    Fauci angling for the Gilead board after Trump fires his shifty ass this summer?

    Ned 2: All of the senior politicians, to include Trump, seem to be slobbering all over Fauci and Ms. Scarf.

    Watch all 5 parts, before it’s banned.

    Did the CDC just come clean?
    35,000 deaths attributed to just CV-19?

    (sorry about the links)

    Re: the youtube videos above:
    A take away for all Dr. John Loannidis’ observations:

    (from a biologist friend)
    Quote:
    He is a professor of population health at Stanford University. These presentations are about an hour long. The first was in March with an update in April. I know it’s hard to spend that much time listening, assuming you even want to. Here’s my few key takeaways:

    Most of the information policymakers have been using is unreliable, leading to bad policy. “Our over-reaction is due to the early dramatic presentations…”

    Mortality rates have been grossly overstated. He estimates the actual coronavirus mortality rate to be similar to the flu, below 1% (between .2-.5% and not the 3-10% you hear on TV). This is all about an accurate denominator (i.e. total infected).

    A Decline in the infamous ‘curve’, which policymakers are basing their ‘reopen’ decisions, does NOT measure infection rate trends! It simply measures how many tests have been conducted (and tested positive). The number infected could be declining, yet this graph could be going up simply because of number of tests administrated, again leading to bad policy.

    Media is a highly unreliable source of information, inflaming panic by highly exaggerating this pandemic. Obviously, there are political motives here as well. Media loves to portray anecdotal examples with screams of horror

    Most hospitals in the country have been unaffected or grossly underutilized. Some are actually laying staff off!

    THE ‘RISK’ of the coronavirus for people 65 and under is equivalent to getting behind the wheel of a car, a manageable risk we face every day.

    Contact Tracing – not scientifically feasible for the vast majority of the US and a waste of resources.

    Vaccine – According to Doctor Loannidis , science does not have a good track record with coronavirus vaccines. He has serious concerns about effectiveness and side effects and rushing something out that is unproven. He does NOT recommend holding off returning to normal for a vaccine that may not materialize or take much longer than we can wait for.

    Number of deaths from the coronavirus is overstated.

    Most do not distinguish from deaths by COVID versus deaths with COVID!
    There are no consistent standards for measuring coronavirus deaths.
    Some use the ‘probable coronavirus death’ standard
    Isn’t it strange how the number of deaths from the flu have dropped dramatically since this COVID outbreak?
    The vast majority of individuals who have died from the virus already had a “very limited life expectancy”. Dr. Loannidis raises this interesting question. Should we not be more concerned with days of lives saved?

    Social distancing is arbitrary and a very broad, ineffective approach to this problem, causing collateral damage worse than the virus itself.

    Social distancing does NOT save lives! It just spreads them over time.
    Suicides go up with every 1% increase in the unemployment rate, which they estimate to exceed 20% shortly!
    Closing schools have had no effect on the mortality rate. Germany and other European countries have realized this and are reopening their schools now.
    Domestic violence, child abuse/molestation are all up!
    Claims that social distancing will save 2 million US lives is science fiction, a claim made for political reasons. Models suggesting deaths of 2 million were among those dramatic and highly inaccurate presentations disseminated early on.’

    I am sure if ya dig deep enough our good, esteemed dr fauci has some deep ties to the pharma companies that produce Remdesivir. Wanna take bets on that? I am sure I could find a sucker that would pay 3 to 1…

    Ned2 — Many thanks for the summary! All of the points you list agree with sources I’ve read on other sites…
