Keys To Understanding The US Covid Death Rate

There are several keys to understanding the problems with the official US count of the covid death rate. One of these was the deadly drug called Remdesivir. We cover in the article How Gilead Brought Off the NIH’s Support of Remdesivir, how the only reason this drug was approved was that Gilead Sciences paid off members of the NIH and FDA to obtain Emergency Use Authorization. Here are a few quotations regarding Remedesivir.

For Remdesivir, studies show that 71–75% of patients suffer an adverse effect, and the drug often had to be stopped after five to 10 days because of these effects, such as kidney and liver damage, and death,” Citizen Journal writes.

“Remdesivir trials during the 2018 West African Ebola outbreak20 had to be discontinued because death rate exceeded 50%. Yet, in 2020, Anthony Fauci directed that Remdesivir was to be the drug hospitals use to treat COVID-19, even when the COVID clinical trials of Remdesivir showed similar adverse effects.  – Mercola

The Deadly Covid Treatment Protocol Designed by the NIH

Now that we have covered Remdesivir which is the title of this article which is the covid treatment protocol.

Here is the protocol for treating covid by stage.

First Stage

Before a patient is hospitalized, there no treatment is recommended. There are many effective treatments for covid, but the NIH did not recommend any of these be used for some strange reason.

The impact of this treatment will be to maximize the number of patients that end up being admitted to the hospital for covid treatment.

Second Stage

After hospitalization, oxygen, Remdesivir, and Dexamethasone are recommended. Dexamethasone is an anti-inflammatory and, surprisingly, is off-patent—the WHO has the following to say about Dexamethasone.

Dexamethasone is off-patent and has been marketed in different formulations (e.g., tablets, liquid, solution for injection) for many years. It is generally available in most countries. There are several manufacturers of the product. One manufacturer has already been prequalified by WHO (Kern Pharma in Spain) while another is under assessment.

According to preliminary findings shared with WHO (and now available as a preprint), for patients on ventilators, the treatment was shown to reduce mortality by about one third, and for patients requiring only oxygen, mortality was cut by about one fifth.

When this protocol was selected, the WHO did not have any published findings but worked off of the preliminary conclusions. The problem with preliminary findings is that they tend to not match the findings when the study is published. Preliminary findings have been repeatedly used by Dr. Fauci to obtain Emergency Use Authorization before anyone can review the actual studies.

Third Stage

The third stage is a continued combination of oxygen and Remdesivir and Dexamethasone. But here, high flow oxygen is recommended.

Fourth Stage

The fourth stage is a combination of intubation and a ventilator and Remdesivir and Dexamethasone.

Before we get into the topic of ventilation, one might ask where are monoclonal antibodies in the covid treatment protocol. Monoclonal antibodies were approved by the FDA for treating covid but have been essentially blocked from use. I will cover this topic further in the article.

Something that makes no sense about the covid protocol is that no anti-inflammatories are recommended prior to hospitalization. This is an important topic covered in the article How the NIH Maximizes Hospitalizations by Not Recommending Anti-Inflammatories.

The Problem With Ventilation

There is no doubt that even before the NIH covid protocol was developed that includes ventilation, far too many people were placed on ventilators. Ventilators must be considered an absolute last resort.

Observe the following quotes.

Researchers in Wuhan, for instance, reported that, of 37 critically ill Covid-19 patients who were put on mechanical ventilators, 30 died within a month. In a U.S. study of patients in Seattle, only one of the seven patients older than 70 who were put on a ventilator survived; just 36% of those younger than 70 did. And in a study published by JAMA on Monday, physicians in Italy reported that nearly 90% of 1,300 critically ill patients with Covid-19 were intubated and put on a ventilator; only 11% received noninvasive ventilation. One-quarter died in the ICU; 58% were still in the ICU, and 16% had been discharged.

Older patients who do survive risk permanent cognitive and respiratory damage from being on heavy sedation for many days if not weeks and from the intubation, Gillick said. – StatNews

And this quote.

Most coronavirus patients who end up on ventilators go on to die, according to several small studies from the U.S., China and Europe.

And many of the patients who continue to live can’t be taken off the mechanical breathing machines.

“It’s very concerning to see how many patients who require ventilation do not make it out of the hospital,” says Dr. Tiffany Osborn, a critical care specialist at Washington University in St. Louis who has been caring for coronavirus patients at Barnes-Jewish Hospital.

That concern is echoed by Negin Hajizadeh, a pulmonary critical care doctor at the Donald and Barbara Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell on Long Island, N.Y.

“We have had several patients between the hospitals across the Northwell system that have come off the breathing machine,” Hajizadeh says. “But the vast majority are unable to.”

The largest study so far to look at mortality among coronavirus patients on ventilators was done by the Intensive Care National Audit & Research Centre in London. It found that among 98 ventilated patients in the U.K., just 33 were discharged alive.

The numbers from a study of Wuhan, China, are even grimmer. Only 3 of 22 ventilated patients survived.

And a study of 18 ventilated patients in Washington state found that nine were still alive when the study ended, but only six had recovered enough to breathe on their own.

All the early research suggests that once coronavirus patients are placed on a ventilator, they will probably need to stay on it for weeks. And the longer patients remain on a breathing machine, the more likely they are to die.

“We’re not sure how much help ventilators are going to be,” Osborn says. “They may help keep somebody alive in the short term. We’re not sure if it’s going to help keep someone alive in the long term.”

Unfortunately, Osborn says, “the ventilator itself can do damage to the lung tissue based on how much pressure is required to help oxygen get processed by the lungs.”

And coronavirus patients often need dangerously high levels of both pressure and oxygen because their lungs have so much inflammation.

Another risk from being on a ventilator is that the tube carrying air and extra oxygen to the lungs provides a pathway for dangerous germs. Many ventilated patients get a new lung infection, a problem known as ventilator-associated pneumonia.

Ventilators have been seen as critical to treating coronavirus patients because the devices are very successful when used to treat common forms of pneumonia, says Hajizadeh. – NPR

And this quote.

“People need to understand, even in these occasions, you’re going to have long-term damage to the lung, you’re going to have long-term damage to your brain and heart,” said Hassoun. – Fox

And this quote.

But some health professionals have wondered whether ventilators might actually make matters worse in certain patients, perhaps by igniting or worsening a harmful immune system reaction.

That’s speculation. But experts do say ventilators can be damaging to a patient over time, as high-pressure oxygen is forced into the tiny air sacs in a patient’s lungs

Some say it is simply a result of patients being extremely ill when they are put on the machines, which pump oxygen directly into the lungs via a tube down the throat.

But others suggest the ventilators – which can make inflammation in the lungs worse – are being implemented too soon and harming coronavirus patients.

In the most life-threatening cases, COVID-19 can permeate deep into the lungs and cause severe inflammation, making it hard to breathe.

Pumping pressurised oxygen into the lungs can irritate the organs and damage them further.

Dr Paul Marik, chief of pulmonary and critical care medicine at Eastern Virginia Medical School, said this was a ‘vicious cycle’ for coronavirus patients.

Scott Weingart, a critical care physician in New York, told Stat News coronavirus patients get worse ‘as a direct result of intubation’.

He added: ‘High levels of force and oxygen levels, both in quest of restoring oxygen saturation levels to normal, can injure the lungs. I would do everything in my power to avoid intubating patients.’ – Daily Mail

Covid is not that deadly that it justifies using a ventilator.

It seems many people either died on ventilators or had their health worsened and permanently damaged by being placed on a ventilator.

This is reinforced in the following quotation.

But some health professionals have wondered whether ventilators might actually make matters worse in certain patients, perhaps by igniting or worsening a harmful immune system reaction.

That’s speculation. But experts do say ventilators can be damaging to a patient over time, as high-pressure oxygen is forced into the tiny air sacs in a patient’s lungs – Daily Mail

Is it speculation? Look at the statistics of people put on ventilators. Why is it only considered speculation to observe those statistics? It appears that placing people on ventilators in the first place was speculation.

The quote continues.

The Death Toll From Ventilators

In ventilated patients, the death toll is staggering … [attorney Thomas] Renz announced at a Truth for Health Foundation Press Conference that CMS data showed that in Texas hospitals, 84.9% percent of all patients died after more than 96 hours on a ventilator.

Despite that, putting COVID patients on mechanical ventilation is “standard of care” for COVID across the U.S. to this day. Without doubt, most of the early COVID patients were killed from ventilator malpractice, and patients continue to be killed — not from COVID but from harmful treatments.

Supressing Generic Or Off Patent Drugs

The following slide deals with the incentives to suppress off-patent drugs for outpatient treatment like Ivermectin to reduce hospitalizations.

The answer to this comment is very obviously “yes.”

Quotes from a Nurse on the Treatment of Covid Patients

Some of the least censored information to come out of hospitals on treating covid have come from nurses.

“I have been a nurse for almost 25 years. Most of my career has been in ICU. I have never seen anything like this in my whole career,” Smith confessed. “They are not allowing doctors to do what they want to do to help the patients. Everything is being regulated by higher-ups in the hospitals.” – The Gateway Pundit

This relates to the treatment protocol that has been dedicated by the NIH, CDC, AMA, and FDA to the hospitals and that they have dictated to the MDs. MDs are not allowed to deviate from this treatment protocol.

The quote continues…

The veteran nurse described in detail a litany of unorthodox, unhygienic and dangerous practices that were implemented within medical facilities at the start of the bio war and worsened month after month.

Prior to the Covid vaccine administration, patients were not actually dying from the virus, but from medical malpractice, Smith explained.

“They were dying because doctors were immediately intubating patients and providing them with Remdesivir, an expensive drug that does nothing to treat Covid or respiratory illness, but shuts down the organs,” the nurse, who worked at Cleveland Clinic Indian River Hospital exclusively during Covid, recollected.

During the first wave of Covid, doctors abruptly abandoned protocol typically administered to patients suffering from severe respiratory illness and were instructed to comply with regulations that in retrospect amount to the administration of mass murder. – The Gateway Pundit

This is, of course, the covid treatment protocol.

Interestingly, in the early stages of the pandemic, there was a proposed shortage of ventilators. However, it appears that the vast majority of those placed on ventilators should never have been placed on them. Therefore, the ventilator shortage was driven by a faulty treatment protocol.

The quote continues…

“At the beginning, they weren’t even allowing them oxygen; they were just intubating them right away. At the time, they said they didn’t want to spread the Covid so they wouldn’t do high flow, or BIPAP or any other therapeutics, they just automatically got intubated with a breathing tube, a ventilator,” Smith asserted. – The Gateway Pundit

This is precisely what you do not want to do to a covid patient.

In the early stages of the pandemic, the protocol was worse than the one we just reviewed earlier, and it moved people directly to ventilators. Finally, later in the pandemic, breathing machines or BIPAPs were added before placing the patient on a ventilator. But there is no doubt many people were killed with this protocol.

The quote continues…

Adhering to the American Medical Association, Center For Disease Control and Food and Drug Administration directives, doctors began withholding Hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin, medications that were effectively treating Covid patients, and began exclusively administering Remdesivir, a drug that ineffectively treats the virus and has lethal side effects.

“A major part of why people were dying from Covid is because they were putting people on Remdesivir and intubating them. The only drug they were giving people is Remdesivir – and we still are. Remdesivir costs $5,000 a bag and it doesn’t do anything. It can shut your organs down. A lot of the covid patients treated with Remdesivir end up on dialysis,” she said. “Intubating patients is basically a death sentence, especially with the Delta variant, we save very few. – The Gateway Pundit

Ivermectin was the most effective drug available, and that continues to be available. Hydroxychloroquine is another. And unlike Remdesivir they are cheap and have very low side effects. Furthermore, many effective supplements like vitamin D address vitamin or mineral deficiencies that allow the immune system to function as it should. However, all of those treatments were blocked by the NIH.

The quote continues…

“At one point we had a doctor giving patients Ivermectin because he was having such success in his outpatient clinic and they came through. The management of the Cleveland Clinic, the higher-ups, threatened to fire him if he continued to do so. He’s not confrontational, he just kind of goes along to get along. I will say, in his defense, that he will give it to the nurses if we get it.” – The Gateway Pundit

MDs have been repeatedly fired or threatened to be fired for prescribing Ivermectin. If MDs had success with Ivermectin, the word would have gotten out (as it has already gotten out in other countries like Japan, Indonesia, India, and other countries). So the medical establishment needed to stop that from happening.

The quote continues…

“We even plead with patients to stay calm – because they can’t breathe, and they freak out and they end up on the ventilator. We beg them, ‘You don’t want to go on the ventilator. We are not having good success.’ We even tell the patients that.

“The vaccine doesn’t do anything to help you. It doesn’t. We think it caused the Delta variant. The nurses, among ourselves, we all talk. It got worse after the vaccine.

“What they are trying to do now is put them on what we call high flow oxygen or we are putting them on a mask called BiPap,” Smith said. “If they then continue to defect, then we intubate them. So, we are at least giving them a chance before we intubate them now. When we were still using Hydroxychloroquine on our patients, we only lost two people a day from Covid. During the Delta wave, we had twice as many patients sick from the variant and we only saved 5 a day. And we couldn’t use Hydroxychloroquine. Dealing with the delta variant was the worst thing I’ve ever seen.”

They’ve all gone rogue,’” she argued. “The CDC and the FDA need to stop regulating everything and let the doctors do their job.

“The doctors complied and said they were administering Remdesivir because ‘That’s the Cleveland Clinic way.’ They told us it has no bad side effects. There was a point when the vaccine first came out that the doctors were bullying us, by telling us they lost all respect for us and belittled us saying, ‘I thought you were smarter than that.’ All but 2 doctors at the hospital I work in have been vaccinated. Now, they are all admitting it’s not working. Now they are saying it isn’t as effective as they believed it was going to be.” – The Gateway Pundit

That is amazing that MDs are telling people that Remdesivir has no harmful side effects.

The published studies show terrible side effects. After reading the studies, if I were told I was about to be put on Remdesivir, I would flatly refuse, and I question the medical training or the honesty of an MD who would try to convince me to use Remdesivir. It is deeply unethical to place people on Remdesivir after what is known about it.

As most of the studies are paid for by Gilead, the side effects are worse than what is published, and this is lying on the part of the MDs. The side effects of Remdesivir are covered in the article How Safe Are the Vaccines Versus Ivermectin and Remdesivir.

Where Are The Supposedly FDA Approved Monoclonal Antibodies?

The NIH discusses monoclonal antibodies on its website. I pulled this quote on January 4th, 2022.

You can treat mild symptoms of COVID-19 at home with over-the-counter medicine and reduce the chances of viral spread with basic safety steps. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has guidance for at-home treatment of COVID-19.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is studying the safety and effectiveness of molnupiravir, an antiviral drug developed by Merck & Co. that could be taken at home to reduce symptoms in people with mild to moderate COVID-19.

The FDA issued an emergency use authorization for monoclonal antibodies, which may help your immune system recognize and defend against COVID-19. Not everyone who gets COVID-19 qualifies for this treatment. If you have COVID-19 and are at high risk of severe illness, your doctor may recommend monoclonal antibodies. Your doctor also may refer you to a clinical trial for a potential COVID-19 treatment – NIH

The tricky thing about this quote is that most people do not qualify for monoclonal antibodies. And even though they are effective, the health authorities block their use. Furthermore,

Despite being the only authorized outpatient medical therapy for preventing the worsening of COVID-19 symptoms in high-risk patients, there remains no steady supply of monoclonal antibodies from the federal government a year after its approval for use by medical regulators.

Rolled out in the same month as the COVID-19 vaccines, monoclonal antibody therapies have not gotten the attention that vaccine treatments have after they were billed as the thing to get America out of the pandemic.

Even today, President Joe Biden continues to mostly focus on vaccinating children, providing boosters to every adult, and increase testing as part of his “new actions” to combat the COVID-19 pandemic during the winter.

The first monoclonal antibody treatments were issued emergency use authorization (EUA) in November 2020, but there seemed to be little interest in utilizing the therapy when the focus was on the campaign to vaccinate every person aged 16 and older by federal and state governments.

Dr. Peter McCullough, an internist, cardiologist, and epidemiologist, said in an interview with EpochTV’s “American Thought Leaders” program that he was “shocked with the lack of fanfare on the monoclonal antibodies, there was almost no uptake.”

He added, “We heard reports that over 80 percent of the supply was sitting on the shelves. Nursing homes weren’t informed, urgent cares weren’t supplied, hospitals weren’t in supply. There wasn’t any messaging.”

HHS issued a notice on Dec. 23 that it would halt distribution of the REGEN-COV and Eli Lilly antibody therapies, based on in-vitro or “test-tube” studies—which have yet to be independently peer-reviewed—which found the antibody treatments may not be as effective against the Omicron variant, leaving GlakoSmithKline’s sotrovimab as the only available treatment. – Epoch Times

And after having MAs “hypothetically” approved, the FDA came out on Jan 25, 2022, and completely banned them as is explained in the following quotation.

“Because data show these treatments are highly unlikely to be active against the Omicron variant, which is circulating at a very high frequency throughout the United States, these treatments are not authorized for use in any U.S. states, territories, and jurisdictions at this time,” the FDA stated. “In the future, if patients in certain geographic regions are likely to be infected or exposed to a variant that is susceptible to these treatments, then use of these treatments may be authorized in these regions.”

The FDA, citing a National Institutes of Health panel, which in turn cited two non-peer reviewed papers, said two of the monoclonal antibody treatments do not work against Omicron, a recently-emerged variant of the virus. – The Epoch Times

Most likely this study was rigged by the NIH to make it appear as if MAs are not effective. Fauci has a large number of testing companies that will show whatever Fauci wants shown. Fauci tells them the outcome, and the entity provides the desired result.

The HHS is connected to the NIH, which is controlled by Fauci. Fauci wanted monoclonal antibodies killed, so he rigged a test tube study to undermine their effectiveness. Fauci has undermined any treatment for covid that is used on an outpatient basis or which prevents people from being hospitalized. This makes it appear that Fauci wants hospitalizations maximized. This is part of the continuation plan for the pandemic by the health authorities that I cover in the article Pandemic in a Box: The Specific Steps Used to Create the Covid Pandemic.

This video covers how monoclonal antibodies have been suppressed by medical authorities even though they have been proven effective. 

A Covid Treatment Protocol Designed to Maximize Hospitalizations and Deaths

This is particularly hypocritical, because as the public was told to “flatten the curve,” the health authorities were following a protocol that included an ineffective and hazardous and organ destroying drug (Remdesivir) that should never have been allowed to be used by the public and will maximize mortality, while not using other treatments before being hospitalized that maximized the number of people that would be hospitalized. And there was more than just what is listed so far that led to covid hospitalization deaths, as is explained in the following quotation.

Then there are deaths from restrictions on effective treatments for hospitalized patients. Renz and a team of data analysts have estimated that more than 800,000 deaths in America’s hospitals, in COVID-19 and other patients, have been caused by approaches restricting fluids, nutrition, antibiotics, effective antivirals, anti-inflammatories, and therapeutic doses of anti-coagulants. – Mercola

Health authorities can’t be this stupid or incompetent.

As stupidity cannot be the reason, the health authorities knowingly implemented this protocol, knowing precisely what it would do.

While this treatment protocol is terrible for patients, it is profit-maximizing for Gilead Sciences and hospitals. This means that those designing the covid protocols could not have cared less about public health.

The US Federal Government Created A Bounty of $100,000 Per Covid Patient

This is explained in the following quotation.

..one of the most obvious answers to how this could have happened is that hospitals are receiving massive incentives to over-treat COVID patients to death. In the simplest terms, every patient has what amounts to a $100,000+ bounty on their head. Hospitals receive bonus payments for:5,6

COVID testing and COVID diagnoses — Hospitals receive a 20% “bonus” on top of the standard cost for the treatment of a COVID patient7

Admission of a “COVID patient”

Use of remdesivir — The U.S. government actually pays hospitals an additional bonus when they use remdesivir,8,9,10 and that’s in addition to the 20% upcharge. Remdesivir was developed as an antiviral drug and tested during the Ebola breakout in 2014. Results were beyond disappointing. In the early months of 2020, the drug was entered into COVID trials.11

Those trials were also beyond disappointing.12,13,14 Not only was the drug ineffective against the infection but it also had significant and life-threatening side effects, including kidney failure and liver damage.15 Despite its clear dangers and lack of effectiveness, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration authorized remdesivir for emergency use against COVID in May 2020,16 and then gave it full approval in October 2020.17

Use of mechanical ventilation, which CMS whistleblowers claim kill 84.9% of COVID patients within as few as 96 hours,18 typically due to barotrauma19 (trauma to the lungs from the elevated pressure).

COVID deaths — In August 2020, former director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Robert Redfield, agreed hospitals had a financial incentive to overcount COVID deaths.20

According to Renz, hospitals are raking in a minimum of $100,000 extra for each and every “COVID patient” when they follow the directive to only treat with remdesivir and ventilation. On the other hand, hospitals that refuse to follow this deadly protocol and use things like ivermectin, antibiotics and steroids forfeit all government payments.

Still, financial incentives dictating drug treatment don’t explain why some hospitals are now withholding basic nutrition and fluids, quite literally torturing — starving — the patients to death. Such cases make it clear that death simply must be the desired outcome. Why else would you withhold food and water?

Initially, these COVID incentives were justified as a way to make sure hospitals would not be financially destroyed by the pandemic as they were losing revenue from routine care and elective surgeries they could no longer provide.21 – Mercola

Not the FDA’s, NIH’s, and CDC’s First Rodeo?

And the way this was done demonstrated so much disregard for public health and was so unconcerned with facing any repercussions if discovered that this cannot be the first time this type of profit-maximizing protocol has been developed for treating a disease.

  • This is the problem of having a treatment protocol and overall medical establishment that is entirely controlled by pharmaceutical companies – where entities that are paid for by public funds, are controlled by profit-maximizing firms.
  • A second problem is entities like the NIH and CDC that appear to demonstrate a long-term pattern of trying to promote pandemics in order to improve their profile and their budgets.

One can observe from the treatment protocol that these government entities do not work in the public interest.

Conclusion

  • The covid treatment protocol is horrifying and entirely illogical — until one considers that the protocol has nothing to do with public health, that it damages the health of patients, and that it is designed to maximize the revenues and profits of hospitals and Gilead Sciences — the manufacturer of Remdesivir.
  • The covid treatment protocol is not related to the evidence of what works versus covid. None of the effective treatments against covid were included as part of the protocol, and the medical establishment actively discredited and banned the effective drugs which were Ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine.
  • The covid treatment protocol was instrumental in increasing the covid death rate.

This treatment protocol is an excellent reason not to go to hospitals if one has a covid. The treatments available outside of the hospital are far superior to anything offered within US hospitals.
