A country that couldn't take care of its citizens wanted to take of the health of foriegn countries citizens. Stupidity at its maximum level👍

So Says VIP Sid May 6, 2021 - 12:44 AM

Can't believe Modi is still in power he is to blame for this crises. Modi is a human violations leader and is known to have blood on his hands, he is heartless. He ignores facts and his nationalist media faked to the public all the time. This man is not equipped to care for the Indian Nation as all he knows is hate, war and lies.

Fake news. Indian residents are coming out saying this isn’t all true with videos of people walking around normally. People aren’t dying on the streets. People sleep on streets. More fear tactics that the mainstream media pushing to push global new world order agenda. If anything the software so called non FDA approved MNRA jab is the one killing people just like over here. MANIPULATION with restrictions.

Usa Blocking Rawmaterials to india for 2 months to make vaccines have pushed India 2 months ahead to reach its supply demand.
At same time india didnt block rawmaterials to usa. India believed sharing is caring.
But when usa had 0.50 million deaths to flatten curve.
If india can Reduce them to 0.10 million it will be great.
All states again imposing Timely lockdown so cases will have to slow down for few weeks and give time to meet supply demand to vaccinate india.

5/4/21 A CURE FOR COVID IS BEING SURPRESSED BY THE VACCINE INDUSTRY. PEOPLE NEED TO DEMAND that IVERMECTIN be made available QUICKLY. The steps for its approval are loaded with bureaucratic red tape. Public health directors do not RECOGNIZE THE URGENCY and are not proactive during this health CRISIS. They are a hindrance by COVERING-UP the SUCCESSES of IVERMECTIN on critical Covid-19 patients and ignoring the reduction in the death rate. The physicians’ oath is hard to achieve when politicians and Heads of health agencies DON’T KEEP UP WITH THE LATEST MEDICAL DATA. The Hippocratic Oath: “I will apply the regimens of treatment according to my ability and judgment for the benefit of my patients and protect them from harm and injustice,”

IVERMECTIN has many curative properties, mainly: anti-parasitic, anti-viral and anti-inflammatory. Positive IVERMECTIN results can be seen quickly after administering the initial doses and it is an extremely safe and inexpensive drug. Contraindications list warfarin, however, with proper monitoring this is not a problem as the Covid-19 virus sometimes causes blood clots. Some people with allergies have been treated with Epi-pens or taken to the ICU after their injection of Covid-19 vaccines (see for drug contraindications) Transplant medications need special monitoring as well. There are two forms of IVERMECTIN: one is for pets and farm animals and another more refined medicine is for human use.

HOW TO GET IVERMECTIN AND DOSAGES IICC DAY 2 – Dr. Kory. Dr Pierre Kory discusses current protocols for covid-19 prevention and treatment.

4/29/21 The dosing instructions and vitamin supplements ( Apr. 28, 2021—FLCCC Weekly Update: The COVID-19 Humanitarian Disaster in India–& PROTOCOLl updates

Article on IVERMECTIN appearing in “Pharmacy Magazine,” Ivermectin for Covid-19: a cheap drug with a remarkable effect 3/22/21

It is not surprising that pharmaceutical vaccine companies deny the efficacy of Ivermectin and try very hard to confuse the public stating it’s only for animals (never stating they are developing anti-viral drugs currently which will be more profitable). These drug companies have rolled out their vaccines quickly with INCOMPLETE SAFETY DATA. The US FDA, US CDC, and WHO have been given evidence-based and clinical trials data but they have refused to scrutinize/accept them which is causing so much pain, suffering and deaths.

The USA CONGRESS NEEDS TO INVESTIGATE why these agencies are acting willfully and deliberately to cause non-recommendations against medicines which are needed to prevent and treat COVID-19. These health agencies have been compromised by the highly profitable vaccine industry. Heads of health agencies are opposing the use of Ivermectin because their knowledge is based on OLD MEDICAL DATA from March to August, 2020; they believe in the lies and false medical data creating confusion about these medicines; or they have a vested interest in the vaccine industry.

IICC Day 1 – Dr. David Chesler


Doctor says 98% of 52 studies on Ivermectin show positive effect against COVID-19 – ANC


Doctor: There are at least 80 studies, 26 trials on use of Ivermectin vs COVID-19 | ANC 4/11/21

Detailed Ivermectin clinical studies, etc. and (Latest)

The virus vaccines are being released with questionable safety records on an “emergency usage authorization,” As of Feb 18, 2021 vaccine-related deaths were 1,095; serious injuries secondary to vaccination totaled 3,767. Reactions mostly go unreported because people who have bad reactions to vaccines cannot sue the pharmaceutical companies. One-third of the deaths occurred within 48 hrs of the vaccine shot. No deaths have been recorded using IVERMECTIN for prophylaxis. It has a proven safety record for 45 years, yet medical officials clamor for more data when so much already exists. The cost of treating 100 people with IVERMECTIN is about $3.00; with the double-dose Pfizer vaccine $4,000.

Well, one can play magic tricks with numbers. Here is a short analysis of the situation in India. I am also including below it an assessment regarding the effectiveness of mask mandates and lockdowns by Prof. Michael Levitt. He is the 2013 recipient of the Nobel Prize in chemistry.

Whenever the number of COVID patients rise so much in a country that there is not enough beds in their hospitals, I wonder why don't their neighbor countries and other countries which their hospitals are not crowded transfer as much as possible of their patients to their country and hospitals. Some may say this may spread the disease but the disease has already spread and we human beings should not be so selfish. For example in this case of India which their hospitals are full, why doesn't the world airlift their patients to the other countries with relatively empty hospitals? Since COVID started the air travel has dropped and thousands of planes are grounded which can be used to airlift the patients to other countries which have empty capacity. Since COVID We have all heard of the sea travel reduction with cruise ships which has lead to the scrapping of these ships due to economic reasons. Before scrapping them, Why don't we turn them which have a lot of room and beds into floating hospitals and send them to the harbors and ports of COVID hit countries?

Sooth Sayer May 6, 2021 - 1:28 AM

#ResignModi get rid of this sad clown already! The Indian Covid Disaster is a politically engineered disaster where mismanagement and manipulation were used for political gain at the expense of Indian lives!

Abhinav Paul May 6, 2021 - 1:30 AM

Is the US halting export of raw materials under Defence production act not a factor for crunch shortage ??? They had. to be reminded of a vital raw material supplied by India for Pfizer vaccine after which it was lifted

When millions upon millions are jammed together in relatively small places, the spread of disease is bound to happen. Disease is the great leveler & tends to reduce uncontrollable population growth. And look at the Ganges River. While thousands, if not millions make a trek to this "Holy" place to bathe, it is perhaps the most polluted waterway in the world.
