Source: U.S. Navy photo by Mass Communication Specialist 2nd Class Erwin Jacob Miciano New York’s Department of Health issued a memo this week to health care providers and facilities in the state warning that there is a severe shortage of Covid-19 treatments.
In order to be eligible to receive oral antivirals or monoclonal antibody treatment products, patients need to meet five conditions. The first four are not controversial—there are age and weight requirements, having a mild or moderate case of Covid-19, and able to begin treatment within five days of symptoms. The fifth criterion, however, is more controversial. In addition to meeting the other requirements, patients must also “have a medical condition or other factors that increase their risk for severe illness.”
The memo goes on to state, “Non-white race or Hispanic/Latino ethnicity should be considered a risk factor, as longstanding systemic health and social inequities have contributed to an increased risk of severe illness and death from Covid-19.”
So while white patients can certainly get the treatment, they must have another condition that elevates their risk of severe illness. NY State Department of Health warns they don’t have enough Paxlovid or Monoclonal Antibody Treatment and white people need not apply. https://t.co/shbMWDomLJ […]
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We just launched a GiveSendGo page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
