Since the beginning of the pandemic, alternate covid-19 treatments have been politicized. President Trump suggested that hydroxychloroquine could be an effective treatment for Covid-19 and was relentlessly attacked by the media.
One treatment that has been proven to be both safe and potentially effective is Ivermectin. The mainstream media mocked people who attempted to use Ivermectin to treat covid and published stories of people getting ill from taking high doses of it.
Earlier this month, the Virginia House of Delegates unanimously passed a resolution honoring a Virginia doctor, Dr. Paul Marik, for exploring alternate treatment options for Covid-19 even though it was frowned upon by ‘experts’ and many were persecuted for it. One treatment option that Marik used was Ivermectin.
Just a few days after the resolution was passed, Marik was notified that he was being investigated by the Virginia Department of Health Professions for prescribing a patient Ivermectin instead of Remdesivir as a treatment for Covid-19
The Epoch Times Reports–
On Mar. 11, the Virginia House of Delegates unanimously passed HR228, a resolution to recognize Dr. Paul Marik, founder of the Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance (FLCCC), for what lawmakers called “his courageous treatment of critically ill COVID-19 patients.”
“Instead of playing it safe, and going along with so-called conventional wisdom, Dr. Marik dared to take a truly scientific approach by questioning and innovating in an environment where both were not only frowned upon, but for which he was persecuted,” said Virginia Republican Dave LaRock, the resolution’s primary sponsor.
Just a few days later Marik received a letter dated Mar. 15 from the Virginia Department of Health Professions informing him he had until Mar. 29 to respond to an investigation underway by the agency into his medical practices.
According to the letter, the investigation is based on a complaint from Sentara Hospitals, Norfolk, where Marik ran its intensive-care unit before it suspended him for refusing to prescribe Remdesivir and instead prescribed Ivermectin and other alternative treatments to COVID patients.
