Japan, Andrew Hill, WHO … things are moving! while AFP misinforms

In Japan, the Tokyo Medical Association recommends administration of ivermectin to prevent it from getting worse, according to an article from the Nikkei website we reproduce a translated extract:

At a press conference on February 9, Tokyo Medical Association President Haruo Ozaki recommended the emergency use of drugs, primarily to prevent the worsening of home caregivers in order to respond to the spread of the novel coronavirus infection. He stressed that antiparasitic drugs such as “ivermectin” should be given to people infected with corona, saying they have been shown to be effective in preventing the aggravation abroad.

In addition to ivermectin, he called on the government to approve the use of the anti-inflammatory steroid dexamethasone. Mr Ozaki said, “(Both) have few side effects. I would like the government to consider ensuring that treatment can be done at the level of a family doctor.

Ivermectin and dexamethasone are both prescribed in the country. However, it has not been approved as a treatment for corona. As of the 8th, there are around 1,600 home pickers in Tokyo and around 1,600 infected people who are “under adjustment” because the destination of hospitalization has not been decided. How to cope with sudden changes in the physical condition of home care patients who are often mild or asymptomatic is also a problem.

The WHO for its part announced the news in six weeks, which did not fail to arouse reactions among the defenders of early, inexpensive and available treatments, and proven by studies which are only wrong to do not not be made in rich, western and industrialized countries.

Andrew Hill, whom we had received for a Debriefing, presented his meta-analysis commissioned by the WHO during a videoconference that we relay here, subtitled in French and offered by @ Gabinjean3 that we thank.

An AFP article from February 2, 2021 which concluded that the effectiveness of ivermectin is not scientifically proven is still not updated. By omitting important information and not updating this article following various communications, AFP and its journalist Julie Charpentrat commit fake news. For example, AFP does not mention the debriefing that we carried out with Prof. Hill or the various analyzes, preferring to confine itself to “opinions” provided by various institutes. AFP does not mention either the scientific report submitted by Me Teissedre to the ANSM in early February which contains a review of the studies and available evidence. In addition, Me Teissedre recalled during the hearing at the Council of State that to obtain a temporary recommendation for use, the simple presumption of effectiveness is sufficient. In summary, the AFP article does not represent an objective analysis of the state of science. We regret that this lack of judgment misleads the reader by omitting critical information. Evidence is mounting in favor of the effectiveness of ivermectin, Japan is recommended. Recall that AFP was very quick to publish the information on the Lancet study on May 22, 2020 and to extol the merits of remdesivir on the basis of a simple press release from its manufacturer without any other form of analysis.

France, through its drug agency, will have demonstrated that it is incapable of seeing the evidence on its own, that it has lost its sovereignty and its foresight while waiting for the green light from a snail.

Wouldn’t we also be facing the biggest health scandal of all time? That of the loss of luck.
