The CDC has issued a bit of a warning on Paxlovid. Quelle Surprise…
Epoch Times wants me to make an account but let me read this article as I was coming from a link on Dan Bongino report. Since I don’t know how well a “link from me” will work in comparison, I’ll quote more heavily than usual to be sure folks can read what I’m talking about. I’m posting the link with the Bongino “partner” information tags included.
CDC Director Issues Alert on Pfizer’s COVID-19 Pill
By Jack Phillips May 31, 2022 Updated: June 1, 2022
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Rochelle Walensky warned that Pfizer’s COVID-19 pill Paxlovid can lead to a rebound in symptoms.
“If you take Paxlovid, you might get symptoms again,” Walensky told CBS News on Tuesday. “We haven’t yet seen anybody who has returned with symptoms needing to go to the hospital. So, generally, a milder course.”
Another researcher who is not affiliated with the CDC said that he has observed such a scenario.
“People who experience rebound are at risk of transmitting to other people, even though they’re outside what people accept as the usual window for being able to transmit,” Dr. Michael Charness of the Veterans Administration Medical Center in Boston told CNN on Tuesday.
After a patient recovers from COVID-19, the aforementioned rebound has occurred between two and eight days later, according to the CDC. The agency, however, told CBS that the benefits of taking Paxlovid outweigh the risks of COVID-19, namely among those who are at a high risk of developing severe symptoms from the virus.
So what a pill! You get Covid, they charge a lot to make you feel better, and then a few days later it turns you into a carrier who can attend all sorts of superspreader events since you are “outside what people accept as the usual window for being able to transmit”. I.e. you feel good but are dumping virus on friends, family and randoms in the street. Nice profit leverage for Pfizer there!
About a week ago, the agency issued an alert to health care providers about the rebound, saying that patients who took Paxlovid either test positive for the virus after having tested negative or will experience COVID-19 symptoms.
“A brief return of symptoms may be part of the natural history of SARS-CoV-2 infection in some persons, independent of treatment with Paxlovid and regardless of vaccination status,” the federal health agency said at the time. SARS-CoV-2 is another name for the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus, which causes COVID-19.
The Epoch Times has contacted Pfizer for comment. Pfizer told CBS that it is observing a rebound rate of approximately 2 percent and is continuing to monitor patients.
“We have not seen any [COVID-19] resistance emerge to date in patients treated with Paxlovid,” a spokesperson for the company told Reuters this week.
Um, if a lot of these folks are asymptomatic or having nearly no bad effects, how would they ever know it was only 2% having “rebound”? Say I had Covid, got treated and sent home. A week later I feel like a bit of allergies, maybe. Am I really going to run off to the M.D. for a Covid test? After all, I’m cured now and have antibodies….
IMHO for me, I’ll take Ivermectin over Paxlovid. And have been. We’re pushing 3 years now of zero problems despite several cross continent road trips, 100,000 scale crowd interactions, no masks and no worries in LOTS of public venues, and generally just living life normally. All with a weekly dose of about 2 ¢ of Ivermectin.
A couple of times I’ve missed a week, and felt like “allergies maybe” and slathered on the stuff, and the next day all is gone. No idea if it was allergies, a ‘common cold’ or whatever. But zero sick is a pretty good batting average. So I’m just not going to trust Pfizer on anything. They have a demonstrated track record of preferring profit margin over curing diseases rapidly and cheaply. At least, that’s my opinion from what it looks like when I observe their track record.
