Osgood’s comments are in line with what I’ve seen him say in a number of interviews. In one of them he basically said that Kory “went off the rails” (I don’t remember the exact wording but similar idea) when he was snubbed at the senate testimony where he spoke about ivermectin, and that he hasn’t been the same since. And he (Osgood) has mentioned several times that he feels Kory and others are ignoring studies that show poor results and hyping up the ones that show benefit. Essentially he feels Kory has lost objectivity on the matter and become too emotional.
I guess an unanswered (and perhaps unanswerable) question is, did Osgood honestly have a change of heart/mind or have there been external forces at work – perhaps threats from his employer, for example, that have reshaped his views.
I thought long and hard about the whole vaccine/ivermectin issue and ultimately decided for myself, to get the vaccine (pfizer) and also have a stash of ivermectin on hand in case I wind up with covid. Was that a good choice…time will tell. I’m also working on keeping the vitamin D level up and have various additional supplements like quercetin, zinc, melatonin on hand as well.
Marik was fine and the interviewer asked reasonable questions, but she needs to turn off her mic or learn to be quiet while others are talking. Almost had to turn it off because of all the “uhm hmms” and other sounds she was making throughout.
I think you can be both “pro-vax” (or maybe neutral-vax) and “anti-covid vax” but that is a concept that many are unable or unwilling to grasp. I’ve been labeled “anti-vax” by many on social media (and you can feel the hatred through the computer screen) but I refuse to accept that label. I’ve gotten all the standard vaccines along the way, a number of flu shots (but not every year), had the rabies series a few years ago after an encounter with a bat. Planning on eventually getting the shingles vax and probably the pneumo vax. So why should I let ignorant people pigeon hole me as “anti-vax” just because I’m hesitant about a completely new type of vaccine with no long-term safety data? Especially one that seems to have an unusually large amount of serious short-term side effects. Nope, no way.
I am anti vax mandate but again, won’t let that put me in the the “anti-vax” box.
People really lose it when I tell them that not only am I supportive of those who don’t want to get a covid vaccine, but that I have gotten a Pfizer shot. Then I get accused of being a liar too.
The court was right, and this physician should lose his license for blindly prescribing medication to a patient. Ivermection does NOT work when you’re already on a vent!
Previous cases where judges “forced” hospitals to give ivermectin to vented patients suggests otherwise. Now, whether the ivermectin made the difference in those cases is difficult to prove (people do come off vents and survive even without ivermectin) but…
This is NOT a good candidate for ivermectin, a person who is so close to death the are talking about disconnecting them and allowing them to die:
This seems like a perfect time to try ivermectin…why not? Obviously should have been tried sooner but what is there to lose? Maybe I’m not interpreting your comments correctly but why not give it and see what happens?
Of course you are cheerleader for vax if you are vax. You want everyone in your sinking ship if it goes down.
You are painting with a rather broad brush, something that is quite common here.
After agonizing about the decision for months, I finally decided to get the first Pfizer shot earlier this week. I’m not going to go into the details that led to my decision, but I weighed everything carefully – risk factors based on my age and severity of the delta variant, risk factors of the vaccine both known (short-term) and unknown, and others.
I still support the right of people to decide for themselves and that includes the right to not take one of these vaccines. I regularly get into arguments with people on social media about this and am frequently labeled an anti-vaxxer because I don’t spout the party line about how great these vaccines are. Even when I tell people I got the shot I get accused of lying about it. I also get into arguments with people about ivermectin but that is another matter.
So…any article that has the following sentence in the first couple of paragraphs:
“AFLD has been a leading promoter of ivermectin, a medication typically used to treat parasitic worms in livestock…”
is obviously so biased it’s not worth reading. Really, why not instead mention that ivermectin is a WHO essential medicine that has been used to treat millions over the past 30 years…” Their wording is akin to starting a story about blood thinners by saying “Warfarin is a rat poison that is used to treat blood clots.”
I did skim through parts of the article and came across this informative statement: “overdoses of the drug can lead to vomiting, allergic reactions, seizures, coma, and even death.” That can be said for almost any drug out there! Come on.
This stuff makes my blood boil. Maybe tomorrow I’ll be in a better frame of mind to slog through the whole article.
Did anyone notice whether she (I think) had a website or substack or some other way of following her? I didn’t think about it until too late – in hindsight, it was obvious that account was going to be disappeared before long.
Osgood seems to have a pretty reasonable stance on all of this from what I’ve seen.
There was a recent interview of Robert Malone, I think I found it on his twitter but it may have been posted here. He was asked about ivermectin and also stated that it doesn’t seem as good as the hype that it is getting from Kory et al. So there is obviously some disagreement in the ranks. Plus there have been a few people here who’ve gotten really sick from covid despite being on ivermectin, and I’ve seen reports of that on twitter as well.
I generally tend to not even read articles that start with something like “If you’ve ever argued with a Covidiot over vaccines” but decided to grit my teeth and force my way through this one. All I can say is…wow. Just…wow.
I don’t have anything to add regarding treatment suggestions (it’s been well covered by previous posters), but wanted to wish you a fast and full recovery. Please keep us posted.
