Renowned microbiology specialist on why he believes coronavirus measures are ‘Draconian’
- The Facts:
Dr. Sucharit Bhakdi, a specialist in microbiology and one of the most cited research scientists in German history shares his thoughts on the measures that are being taken to combat the new coronavirus.
- Reflect On:
Reflect on Bhakdi's thoughts, and examine the references he uses. Does he make any valid points?
It’s a very interesting time in human history. The birth of alternative media outlets has allowed information to spread across the globe, rapidly. Today, extreme measures have been taken and are being taken to label information as ‘false news.’ Granted, a lot of information out there is indeed false news, but media outlets are getting flagged, demonetized and censored for sharing information that is perfectly valid.
Intravenous vitamin C treatment for covid-19 patients is one of the latest examples, multiple media outlets claimed that it is very unlikely that it can do anything to help, and ‘fact checkers’ even flagged some articles providing evidence suggesting that it may. Meanwhile, as far as Vitamin C treatment for Covid-19 goes, regardless of what some media outlets are claiming, Medicine in Drug Discovery, of Elsevier, a major scientific publishing house, recently published an article on early and high-dose IVC in the treatment and prevention of Covid-19. Vitamin C was successfully used to treat 50 moderate to severe covid-19 patients, and some New York hospitals have even started to use the treatment.
The author of that publication (mentioned above), Dr. Richard Cheng, has been updating everyone via his YouTube channel about vitamin C treatment cases out of China prior to the publication of his article.
Cheng also had a message for the ‘fact checkers’ as posted in the description of his latest Youtube video.
I was made aware that FB Fact Check claims “Shanghai did not officially recommend high-dose IVC for the treatment of Covid-19” . Let me make it clear that not only Shanghai, but also Guangzhou, Guangdong Province, another major city in China, publicly endorsed high-dose IVC for the treatment of Covid-19. Those who Fact Check, please be more careful.
We are even fearful of our Facebook Page being deleted, so we are encouraging all those who want to continue to receive and be able to find our content to sign up for our email list. This is very important if you want to continue to follow our work in-case Facebook deletes our social media platform(s). We are constantly receiving ‘false news’ strikes and page distribution limits despite the fact that we share credible sources. Again, we are even getting flagged for presenting scientific experts who are simply sharing their opinion. It’s quite concerning, and I am even concerned as I share the opinion of this expert.
How can opinion be ‘false news?’
One of the latest experts to share an opinion that counters what we’re seeing within the ‘mainstream’ comes from Dr. Sucharit Bhakdi, a specialist in microbiology and one of the most cited research scientists in German history.
Bhakdi created a Youtube channel on March 18th, and has since posted four videos that have received more than one million views, total, in a very short span of time. He has, just like Dr. Cheng, been subjected to irresponsible fact checking that has attempted to discredit him.
He recently uploaded what appears to be his last video, and reads an open letter from him to the German Chancellor. His sentiments echo those of three Stanford professors of medicine who recently shared their expert opinion that extraordinary claims require extraordinary data. You can read more about that specifically, here.
If you can’t understand German, be sure to turn on the English subtitles.
Implementation of the current draconian measures that are so extremely restrict fundamental rights can only be justified if there is reason to fear that a truly, exceptionally dangerous virus is threatening us. Do any scientifically sound data exist to support this contention for COVID-19? I assert that the answer is simply, no.
