Friday, HUD Secretary Dr. Ben Carson issued a statement thanking President Trump for saving his life. Carson contracted COVID-19 and was treated with Oleander 4X. At first, he improved, but he has several co-morbidities and soon worsened and became “desperately ill.” He said Trump was following his condition and cleared him to get the monoclonal antibody therapy he’d received, and it worked.
I’m sure we’re all thankful that Dr. Carson is on the mend, but there’s another part of his statement that applies to us all and that deserves to quoted far and wide:
“I am hopeful that we can stop playing politics with medicine and instead combine our efforts and goodwill for the good of all people. While I am blessed to have the best medical care in the world (and I am convinced it saved my life), we must prioritize getting comparable treatments and care to everyone as soon as possible.
There are a number of promising treatments that need to be tested, approved, and distributed (sooner rather than later) so that the economy can be reopened and we can all return to a semblance of normalcy. Also, people should recognize that there are a number of defined steps that legally have to be taken before vaccines are released to the public and trying to cause alarm by saying dangerous shortcuts were taken only serves to stoke fear. Together we will be victorious. God is still in charge.”
Those who keep pushing draconian measures that destroy the economy and people’s lives until a vaccine is developed while spreading politically-motivated suspicion of any vaccine developed under President Trump also keep telling us we must listen to the doctors. Ben Carson is one of the most preeminent doctors in the world. How about listening to him?
