It what can only be described as a final attempt of desperation. A Bakersfield woman is suing Adventist Health to force the hospital to treat her husband with ivermectin, a medication for parasitic diseases that some on Youtube have proposed as a treatment for COVID-19.
The plaintiff’s family appears to view ivermectin as a source of hope in an increasingly bleak situation. The lawsuit says all treatment administered thus far has failed to render improvement on the 66-year-old, who suffers from high blood pressure as well as high cholesterol and hyperthyroidism.
The medical staff has advised the plaintiff and her children to visit the hospital to say goodbye.
Unlike ivermectin, the Pfizer vaccine has been approved by the FDA for preventing COVID-19, and it has issued emergency use authorizations for the Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines. But all 3 of those must be taken before being infected with Covid-19.
