Fact Check : Dr. Kenny Yong On How To Survive COVID-19

Fact Check : Dr. Kenny Yong On How To Survive COVID-19

Dr. Kenny Yong is a COVID-19 survivor who is preaching fake and unproven cures.

Find out why he’s putting people’s lives at risk, and WARN your friends!

 

Dr. Kenny Yong : Rise Of An Antivax Doctor

Dr. Kenny Yong rose from obscurity to a social media celebrity of sorts, after releasing an audio message claiming to be a COVID-19 survivor who was chosen by God to teach us how to survive it too.

He now runs both a Telegram group, as well as a WhatsApp group, where he promotes fake or unproven treatments like ivermectin, as well as vaccine antibody tests, while sharing anti-vaccination videos and opinions – the irony of which is lost on his followers.

In this voice message, he explained how his mother was vaccinated with the Sinovac vaccine that resurrected like a zombie, and infected him and his whole family.

That is an outright lie because the viruses in the Sinovac vaccine are completely dead, but people still believe his lies. Even today, he continues to peddle that lie.

Ironically, he self-medicated himself and his mother with ivermectin and other alternative treatments like high-dose vitamins, ultraviolet blood irradiation, stem cells and even ozone therapy… and FAILED!

Instead of seeking medical help as soon as things got worse, they only sought help more than a week later when they were both breathless.

Even though they both managed to get beds in hospitals that were filled to the brim, Dr. Kenny Yong berated the doctors arrogant for not giving them both his preferred “alternative treatments for COVID-19”.

In the end, his mother died of COVID-19, and Dr. Kenny Yong himself only survived after being resuscitated on four different occasions.

 

Dr. Kenny Yong : COVID-19 Survivor Peddling Falsehoods

Despite failing to treat himself or his mother with his alternative treatments, Dr. Kenny Yong believes that he is a Messiah chosen by God to teach us how to defeat COVID-19 like he did.

He is no Messiah. In fact, he is an object lesson on how NOT to treat or prevent COVID-19.

He refused to get vaccinated, and falsely blamed his own mother for infecting him and his family with COVID-19 from the Sinovac vaccine, which is impossible.

And when they both got infected, he put both their lives at risk by self-medicating with ivermectin and other alternative treatments.

They were only admitted to the hospitals when they “crashed” on Day 8, after a week of alternative treatments. This clearly shows that ivermectin and all those alternative treatments they took were USELESS!

Yet, he continues to promote ivermectin, even though it FAILED to prevent his entire family from getting COVID-19, and when they all got infected, FAILED to prevent both him and his mother from getting severe COVID-19.

And he calls the doctors who treated them “stupid”, “assholes” and “royal circus clowns” – the same doctors who saved him from dying FOUR TIMES.

Dr. Kenny Yong and Dr. Vijaendreh Subramaniam of MAECC

Let me be VERY CLEAR about why Dr. Kenny Yong is not being honest with us, and why he’s peddling dangerous falsehoods :

  1. Inactivated virus vaccines cannot be resurrected. The Sinovac vaccine, for example, is made by using a chemical to scramble the virus’ genetic code, leaving its carcass to serve as the vaccine.
  2. It is impossible for his mother to get COVID-19 from her Sinovac vaccine. It is also wrong for him to blame her for infecting him and his family.
  3. He falsely claims that natural immunity works better than vaccines – 50% of survivors 65 years or older can get reinfected, for example.
  4. He almost died 4 times getting that natural immunity, and his mother died.
  5. Ivermectin has not been shown to work against COVID-19 outside of a lab. In fact, the latest clinical studies show that it offers no clinical benefit against COVID-19, and it doesn’t stop transmission either.
  6. He also falsely claimed that it’s wonderful to take 15 ivermectin tablets – a senior citizen overdosed and fell unconscious!
  7. The other alternative treatments he tried has not been tested or found to work against COVID-19 – stem cells, high-dose vitamins, ultraviolet blood irradiation, ozone therapy.
  8. The FLCCC is a fringe group of doctors that promotes alternative treatments for COVID-19, that they themselves did not even test in any trial to prove that they work!

  • So he claimed that he was not saved by the hospital’s intervention, but his own treatments.
  • He also claimed that he was chosen by God to explain everything to other doctors and people how to treat COVID-19.
  • He called the DG Health of Malaysia and his doctors and specialists “stupid”, “assholes” and “royal circus clowns”.
  • He finally recovered and tested negative for COVID-19 on 21 July 2021.

Surviving COVID-19 Does Not Make You An Expert!

Surviving COVID-19 is something to cheer for, but it does not make you an expert on beating the coronavirus!

Find out why it is dangerous to listen to COVID-19 messiahs preaching fake cures!

 

Some People Think Surviving COVID-19 Makes Them Experts!

Surviving severe COVID-19 is a traumatising experience, and talking about it is often cathartic for these survivors.

However, some COVID-19 survivors have been using their “survivor status” to promote fake cures for COVID-19.

Most notably are a Dr. Kenny Yong, and a Lillian, whose voice messages about surviving COVID-19 have gone viral recently.

I will show you why they are NOT telling you the truth about surviving COVID-19!

 

Why Surviving COVID-19 Does Not Make You An Expert!

Surviving COVID-19 does not require special skills or abilities. Often, it is a combination of age, co-morbidities, access to medical assistance, and yes, luck.

Yet a special few believe that surviving COVID-19 gave them special insight into how to prevent and treat COVID-19.

This is dangerous, because the tips and cures they promote are often FALSE or MISLEADING.

If their health tips and cures worked, would they have ended up with severe COVID-19 requiring hospitalisation and resuscitation?

It is precisely because they FAILED to work, which is why they ended up with severe COVID-19!

Let’s take a look at two examples – Dr. Kenny Yong, and Lilian.

Dr. Kenny Yong

Dr. Kenny Yong’s call to fame is based on surviving Category 1, Category 4 or Category 5 COVID-19 (he cannot seem to decide which).

He called the doctors who treated him arrogant for not accepting his medical advice on how best to treat him and his mother for COVID-19.

Ironically, they both ended up in the hospital after he self-medicated them both with ivermectin and other alternative treatments like high-dose vitamins, ultraviolet blood irradiation and even ozone therapy… and FAILED!

Instead of seeking medical help as soon as things got worse, they only sought help more than a week later when they were both breathless.

In the end, his mother died of COVID-19, and Dr. Kenny Yong himself only survived after being resuscitated on four different occasions.

Dr. Kenny Yong and Dr. Vijaendreh Subramaniam

Dr. Kenny Yong now believes that he is a Messiah chosen by God to teach us how to defeat COVID-19 like he did.

He is no Messiah. In fact, he is an object lesson on how NOT to treat or prevent COVID-19.

He refused to get vaccinated, and falsely blamed his own mother for infecting him and his family with COVID-19 from the Sinovac vaccine, which is impossible.

And when they both got infected, he put both their lives at risk by self-medicating with ivermectin and other alternative treatments.

They were only admitted to the hospitals when they “crashed” on Day 8, after a week of alternative treatments. This clearly shows that ivermectin and all those alternative treatments they took were USELESS!

Yet, he continues to promote ivermectin, and calls the doctors who treated them “stupid”, “assholes” and “royal circus clowns”.

Lillian 

Lillian is a fan of Dr. Kenny Yong, who gave her testimony on the efficacy of ivermectin in the DrKENNY CoVid19 SURVIVOR Q&A WhatsApp group on 11 August 2021.

She revealed that her family took “ivermectin, 2000 IU of Vitamin D3 and Vitamin C” to protect themselves from COVID-19 when her eldest son tested positive for COVID-19.

Nevertheless, the rest of her family became infected – both Lillian and her husband as well as their two younger sons.

Despite continuing to take “ivermectin, 2000 IU of Vitamin D3 and Vitamin C“, now to treat COVID-19, Lillian and her husband took a turn for the worse.

Only when they became breathless about a week later, did they seek medical attention. They were taken to the Serdang Hospital, where they were given oxygen.

Four days later, they transferred to ICUs in private hospitals, where they were still breathless and required high-flow oxygen support.

They continued to take 3 capsules of ivermectin every day, but this time, Lilian claimed that they worked and she recovered after 14 days in the private hospital.

Lillian gave her testimony to support the use of ivermectin, but frankly, she serves as an object lesson on how NOT to treat or prevent COVID-19.

Just like Dr. Kenny Yong, they chose to self-medicate with ivermectin and supplements, and only sought medical help when they were both breathless.

At that point, their lungs were damaged and they required high-flow oxygen. It took them more than 2 weeks and many days in expensive ICUs to recover from COVID-19.

Does that sound like ivermectin helped at preventing or treating COVID-19? Or does it look like a complete failure?

Don’t tell Lillian that. She continues to believe that taking ivermectin saved their lives.

I feel so sorry for the doctors and nurses who actually saved their lives. And not forgetting the high-flow oxygen that kept both Lillian and her husband alive.

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the FACTS really are!

 

Claim : Mount Sinai New York Is Using Ivermectin To Treat COVID-19!

People are sharing this message on WhatsApp, claiming that Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City is using ivermectin to treat COVID-19, even in their ICU!

Note : I “defaced” the website listed, because it peddles fake information on ivermectin.

THEN AUTOMATICALLY WE BECOME ALSO LIKE MMA THEIR MOH PUPPET TRYING TO LIMIT EVERYBODY AND PASS IVERMECTIN TO BE BACK TO STUPID PHARMACY UNIT CONTROLLING IT TO BE FEEDING ONLY TO THE FOUR LEGGED ANIMALS. THIS IS INTENSIVE MADNESS

i honestly felt, any doctor and every doctor is disqualified to touch ivermectin, UNLESS U FULLY UNDERSTAND THIS WEBSITE : https://covid19xxxxcare.com/

ABSOLUTE UNSHAKABLE FAITH AND TRUTH IN BELIEVING IVERMECTIN TRULY IS THE ANSWER TO END THE PENDEMIC AND PROVIDE FREEDOM OF CHOICE OF THERAPY RIGHTS, BACK TO THE HANDS OF EVERY PATIENTS AND REAL COMPASSIONATE HEALER DOCTOR !

 

Truth : Mount Sinai New York Is NOT Using Ivermectin To Treat COVID-19!

Like 95% of viral news on COVID-19 on WhatsApp, this is also FAKE NEWS, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Mount Sinai Hospitals Not Using Ivermectin To Treat COVID-19

The Mount Sinai Health System (MSHS) is a hospital network in New York City, where they have eight hospital campuses.

No hospital in the Mount Sinai Health System use ivermectin to treat COVID-19, so the claim is FALSE.

In fact, the latest MSHS COVID-19 treatment guidelines (updated 28 June 2021) lists ivermectin under “Medications not currently recommended for the treatment of COVID-19

This status has been there since the 4 May 2020 edition of the MSHS COVID-19 treatment guidelines.

Fact #2 : Mount Sinai Says Ivermectin Should Not Be Used Outside Of A Clinical Trial

The latest MSHS COVID-19 treatment guidelines (updated 28 June 2021) states that ivermectin should not be used outside of a clinical trial.

In vitro studies demonstrate ivermectin inhibits SARS-CoV-2 replication and suggest the dosing required would be above what is recommended by the FDA for parasitic infections.

Observational studies and small clinical trials evaluating the use of ivermectin for COVID-19 have been published or are available in pre-print. Most patients included in these reports are prescribed ivermectin early in diagnosis and/or hospitalization and variable comparators are used to determine outcomes including mortality. Regimens are variable in dose and duration. Randomized controlled trials evaluating the potential role of MSHS COVID-19 Treatment Guidance June 28, 2021 ivermectin are limited especially in hospitalized patients with severe or critical disease.

Use of ivermectin for the treatment or prophylaxis of COVID-19 is currently considered unlabeled use and is not recommended outside of a clinical trial.

Fact #3 : Ivermectin NOT Proven To Treat / Prevent COVID-19

Ivermectin has only been shown to work against COVID-19 in lab (in vitro) studies, but does NOT appear to improve clinical outcomes or prevent transmission.

That is why the WHO and the vast majority of health authorities around the world DO NOT advocate using ivermectin to prevent or treat COVID-19.

Read more : Did Australia Approve Ivermectin Treatment For COVID-19?

Fact #4 : Mount Sinai Hospitals Do Not Use Vitamin C To Treat COVID-19

Mount Sinai hospitals also do not use vitamin C to treat COVID-19, so the claim is also false.

There is no mention of Vitamin C in the latest MSHS COVID-19 treatment guidelines (updated 28 June 2021).

Mount Sinai relies mainly on supportive case, as well as :

  • SARS-CoV-2 antibody therapy
  • Dexamethasone
  • Remdesivir
  • Tocilizumab

Fact #5 : Science Is About Evidence, Not Faith

The fake news creator is attempting to blind people to the truth about ivermectin, by asking them to have “absolute, unshakeable faith” in ivermectin.

Is ivermectin now a religion too?

Science – the lynchpin of modern medicine – is all about evidence, not faith. Treatment for COVID-19 should be based on evidence, not faith.

So please stop believing in charlatans promising alternative treatments. They are called “alternative medicine” because there is NO EVIDENCE that they actually work.

COVID-19 Home Treatment Advice By Dr. Noor Hisham???

Did Dr. Noor Hisham Abdullah share his home treatment advice for COVID-19 recently?

Take a look at the viral message, and find out what the FACTS really are!

 

Claim : COVID-19 Home Treatment Advice By Dr. Noor Hisham!

This post, allegedly by Malaysia’s Director General of Health, Dr. Noor Hisham Abdullah, has gone viral on WhatsApp.

It’s really long, so skip to the next section for the FACTS…

FAMILY MOVEMENT CONTROL ORDER – PKPK

_Tan Sri Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah

Covid Medical Kit Needed at home:

1. Paracetamol.
2. Betadine for mouthwash and gargling.
3. Vitamins C and D3.
4. B complex.
5. Steam + capsule for steam.
6. Oximeter.
7. Oxygen cylinder (for emergencies only).
8. Breathing Exercises.

 

Truth : Fake COVID-19 Home Treatment Advice, Not By Dr. Noor Hisham!

This is yet another example of the many fake news circulating on WhatsApp, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : It Was Not Written By Dr. Noor Hisham Abdullah

Dr. Noor Hisham Abdullah is considered to be the Malaysian equivalent of Dr. Anthony Fauci in the United States, which is why fake news creators love to attach his name to the fake news they create.

For Doubting Thomases who think they are smarter than everyone else, this was confirmed as fake news by the Malaysia Ministry of Health on 9 August 2021.

Fact #2 : Home COVID-19 Medical Kit Is Fake

The Malaysia Ministry of Health does not advocate the items in the fake home COVID-19 medical kit attributed to Dr. Noor Hisham Abdullah.

  • Paracetamol is useful for bringing down a fever, but does not work against COVID-19
  • Betadine mouthwash helps with bad breath, but is useless against COVID-19
  • Vitamins C, B complex and D3 have not been proven to work against COVID-19
  • Steam and capsule for steam are completely USELESS against COVID-19
  • Breathing exercises are completely useless against COVID-19

Do NOT rely on these useless “home remedies” from a random WhatsApp message to treat COVID-19.

Read more : Can Inhaling Steam + Supplements Prevent COVID-19?

Fact #3 : There Is No Such Thing As 3 Levels Of COVID-19

There is no such thing as three levels of COVID-19.

When you get infected by SARS-CoV-2 – the coronavirus that causes COVID-19, it immediately infects your cells to replicate.

The virus doesn’t stay in your nose for a short holiday, before taking a slow hike to your throat and then hitting your lungs. It’s a virus, not a tourist.

Fact #4 : SpO2 Levels Should Not Drop Below 90%

The normal oxygen saturation level, SpO2, as measured by a pulse oximeter, is between 95% and 100%.

If your SpO2 level drops below 90%, you need oxygen supplementation, because :

  • your brain gets affected when it falls below 80% to 85%, and
  • you become cyanotic (your skin turns bluish) when your SpO2 level drops below 67%.

You will be dead before your blood oxygen level reaches 43% – the point the stupid viral message says you need an oxygen cylinder.

Fact #5 : Alternative Treatments Do NOT Work Against COVID-19

Hospitals do not provide alternative treatments for COVID-19 like Vitamin C or Vitamin C, eggs, sitting in the sun, and all the bullshit listed in the viral message.

Neither will they prescribe warm water with lemon to “get rid of the virus before it reaches your lungs”.

All those “alternative treatments” are made-up BULLSHIT, and do NOT work against COVID-19.

Please SHARE this fact check with your family and friends, so they won’t fall for this nonsensical advice!

Is Ivermectin Prophylaxis Cheap? Here Is What It Really Costs!

Is ivermectin prophylaxis against COVID-19 really cheap, as its proponents claim?

Take a look at the ivermectin prophylaxis protocol that FLCCC is advocating, and find out what it really costs!

 

FLCCC Ivermectin Prophylaxis Against COVID-19

Dr. Paul E. Marik of the FLCCC is advocating that health authorities use his I-MASK+ protocol to prevent and treat COVID-19.

For prevention of COVID-19, Dr. Paul Marik is recommending that we take these medication :

  • Ivermectin : 0.2 mg/kg on day 1, day 3 and then every 4 weeks
  • Vitamin D3 : 1,000 to 3,000 IU every day
  • Vitamin C : 2,000 mg every day
  • Quercetin : 250 mg every day
  • Zinc : 50 mg every day
  • Melatonin : 6 mg every night

For early treatment of COVID-19, the doses go way up :

  • Ivermectin : 0.2 mg/kg on day 1 and day 3
  • Vitamin D3 : 4,000 IU every day
  • Vitamin C : 4,000 to 6,000 mg every day
  • Quercetin : 500 mg every day
  • Zinc : 100 mg every day
  • Melatonin : 10 mg every night
  • Aspirin : 325 mg every day

The standard dose of ivermectin is 0.2 mg/kg, so that is not actually controversial. An adult of 60 kg would therefore require a dose of 12 mg of ivermectin.

Ivermectin Prophylaxis : How Cheap Is It?

Ivermectin proponents insist that its use is being suppressed because its patent ran out, and so Big Pharma does not benefit from its sale.

That is not really true, because all pharmaceutical companies that make ivermectin will make money off it. Even Merck, whose patent ran out in 1996, still makes money off ivermectin.

So let’s ignore the argument about patents. Let’s just look at the cost of the ivermectin prophylaxis protocol that FLCCC is promoting.

Ivermectin is not sold over the counter in many countries, as it is only used in animals. So it is often sold at inflated prices online.

Here is an example I found on Shopee earlier this month. A strip of 10 tablets cost RM150 (US$36). That’s RM15 (US$3.60) per 12 mg tablet.

There may also been reports that some doctors were illegally selling ivermectin at RM35 per tablet (US$8.45), and RM150 (US$36) per strip.

But the good news is FLCCC’s ivermectin prophylaxis actually uses very little ivermectin! You only take it once a month!

Recommended : Illegal Ivermectin Sale : Up to RM50K Fine + 5 Years Jail!

Then I took a look at the supplements Dr. Marik showcased in his video to work out their costs :

  • Nature Made Vitamin D3 (1,000 IU, 300 softgels) : US$10.29
  • Nature Made Vitamin C (500 mg, 150 tablets) : US$11.66 (up&up brand not available)
  • Vital Quercetin (250 mg, 100 capsules) : US$29.10
  • Windmill Zinc Sulphate (50 mg, 90 tablets) : US$7.45
  • Now Foods Melatonin (3 mg, 180 capsules) : US$9.92

Based on those prices, here is my comparison of the COST of the I-MASK+ prophylaxis protocol versus a selection of COVID-19 vaccines :

Prophylaxis US Price
FLACC I-MASK+ $1.03 per day
$31 per month
$375 per year
AstraZeneca Vaccine (2 doses) $8
J&J Vaccine (1 dose) $10
Moderna Vaccine (2 doses) $30
Pfizer Vaccine (2 doses) $39

As you can see, the ivermectin prophylaxis that FLCCC is promoting costs more than COVID-19 vaccines after just 1 month!

So it really doesn’t make financial sense to choose the FLCCC ivermectin prophylaxis over COVID-19 vaccines.

In fact, the table above shows that it is not the pharmaceutical companies making the big bucks through vaccines, but the SUPPLEMENT INDUSTRY making big bucks from the FLCCC ivermectin prophylaxis!

There is no doubt that the FLCCC ivermectin prophylaxis is ridiculously expensive, and only serves to line the pockets of the supplement industry.

 

Ivermectin Prophylaxis : Other Issues…

There are other issues with the ivermectin prophylaxis that FLCCC and their supporters are advocating.

Taking Pills Every Day…

The FLCCC calls for people to take ivermectin like a monthly supplement, together with large amounts of vitamin D3, vitamin C and other supplements every single day!

And for how long does FLCCC expect people to pop these pills? Until the pandemic is over? That could be months!

How long do you think people can keep up with the daily regime of popping 5 to 6 pills? What if they forget?

It would be far EASIER for people to simply get vaccinated. Most COVID-19 vaccines require two doses, but some require only one dose.

Would you prefer to just get one or two injections, or consume 5 to 6 pills every single day, until the pandemic is over?

Ivermectin Not Proven To Prevent COVID-19…

The biggest problem with the ivermectin prophylaxis that FLCCC is advocating is that – it hasn’t actually been proven to prevent COVID-19.

The latest Lancet study on high-dose ivermectintriple of what FLCCC is advocating – showed no difference in clinical outcomes!

This February 2021 study that was also published in The Lancet showed that ivermectin did NOT reduce transmission of SARS-CoV-2.

Even more troubling – neither Dr. Marik nor the FLCCC has actually run any clinical trial to test and confirm the efficacy of their ivermectin prophylaxis protocol!

FLCCC Uses Very Little Ivermectin…

What’s even more surprising is how little ivermectin FLCCC is actually using in their ivermectin prophylaxis against COVID-19.

They are not only using the standard ivermectin dose, it is only taken once every 4 weeks! Even if you were exposed, you only take ivermectin for two days!

The bulk of their ivermectin prophylaxis protocol involves eating lots of supplements on a daily basis.

If ivermectin really works against COVID-19, why is it used so little in the FLCCC ivermectin protocol?

Ivermectin + Supplements : Better Than COVID-19 Vaccines?

The FLCCC is promoting the use of ivermectin and supplements over vaccines, to protect against COVID-19.

Find out what whether ivermectin and supplements really work better than vaccines against COVID-19!

 

FLCCC : Ivermectin + Supplements Better Than COVID-19 Vaccines

On 21 June 2021, MAECC (Malaysian Alliance for Effective COVID Control) held a press conference, claiming that ivermectin works and can control COVID-19 in 6 weeks.

You can read my fact check of the MAECC expert panel @ MAECC Ivermectin Briefing : Control COVID-19 In 6 Weeks?

The MAECC briefing started with a pre-recorded briefing by Dr. Paul E. Marik on ivermectin’s efficacy against COVID-19.

He describes how his I-MASK+ and MATH+ protocols focus on pre- and post-exposure prophylaxis and early treatment on COVID-19.

For prevention of COVID-19, Dr. Paul Marik is recommending that we take these medication :

  • Ivermectin : 0.2 mg/kg on day 1, day 3 and then every 4 weeks
  • Vitamin D3 : 1,000 to 3,000 IU every day
  • Vitamin C : 2,000 mg every day
  • Quercetin : 250 mg every day
  • Zinc : 50 mg every day
  • Melatonin : 6 mg every night

For early treatment of COVID-19, the doses go way up :

  • Ivermectin : 0.2 mg/kg on day 1 and day 3
  • Vitamin D3 : 4,000 IU every day
  • Vitamin C : 4,000 to 6,000 mg every day
  • Quercetin : 500 mg every day
  • Zinc : 100 mg every day
  • Melatonin : 10 mg every night
  • Aspirin : 325 mg every day

Dr. Paul Marik then shared this slide on WHO VigiAccess, to demonstrate what he called “misinformation” on the safety of ivermectin.

When it came to the COVID-19 vaccines, he claimed they resulted in over 5,000 deaths (the 1,928 deaths in the slide was apparently outdated).

 

Ivermectin + Supplements : Better Than COVID-19 Vaccines?

Do ivermectin and supplements really work better than COVID-19 vaccines? Let’s consider these facts…

Fact #1 : Dr. Marik Misrepresented VigiAccess Data

Let’s start with the slide that Dr. Marik used to prove that ivermectin is safer than COVID-19 vaccines.

He claimed that the WHO VigiAccess system showed that ivermectin resulted in only 16 deaths, while COVID-19 vaccines caused over 5,000 deaths so far.

That’s completely false.

The WHO VigiAccess system just collects data from pharmacovigilance surveillance systems like the US VAERS and the UK Yellow Card.

Those are open reporting systems, where anyone from anywhere can report any side effect without verification.

I wrote about them earlier (here, here, here), showing how I can create fake adverse effect reports in VAERS and Yellow Card.

It is irresponsible and wrong to claim that COVID-19 vaccines are dangerous using unverified pharmacovigilance reports by the public.

Fact #2 : FLCCC Protocol Doesn’t Use Ivermectin Much

Despite FLCCC’s promotion of ivermectin, it doesn’t actually figure much in their I-MASK+ protocol.

For prophylaxis, ivermectin is only taken once every 4 weeks! Even if you were exposed, you only take ivermectin for two days!

On top of that, ivermectin is only used at its standard dose of 0.2 mg/kg, when the latest Lancet study using TRIPLE that dose for 5 days straight showed “no difference” in clinical outcomes.

The bulk of the I-MASK+ protocol involves eating lots of supplements on a daily basis.

If ivermectin really works against COVID-19, wouldn’t it figure much more in their protocol?

Fact #3 : Vaccination Far EASIER Than Daily Supplements

The FLCCC calls for people to take ivermectin like a monthly supplement, together with large amounts of vitamin D3, vitamin C and other supplements every single day!

And for how long does FLCCC expect people to pop these pills? Until the pandemic is over? That could be months!

It would be far EASIER to simply get vaccinated. Most COVID-19 vaccines require two doses, but some require only one dose.

Would you prefer to just get one or two injections, or consume 5 to 6 pills every single day, until the pandemic is over?

Fact #4 : Vaccination Far CHEAPER Than Daily Supplements

COVID-19 vaccines are provided FREE of charge in most countries around the world, whereas supplements are certainly not free. Neither are they cheap!

Sure, anti-vaccination proponents claim that COVID-19 vaccines are expensive, and ultimately the people end up paying for it.

But exactly how expensive are COVID-19 vaccines? And how do they compare against the ivermectin + supplement course that FLCCC is advocating?

I took a look at the supplements Dr. Marik showcased in his video to work out their costs :

  • Nature Made Vitamin D3 (1,000 IU, 300 softgels) : US$10.29
  • Nature Made Vitamin C (500 mg, 150 tablets) : US$11.66 (up&up brand not available)
  • Vital Quercetin (250 mg, 100 capsules) : US$29.10
  • Windmill Zinc Sulphate (50 mg, 90 tablets) : US$7.45
  • Now Foods Melatonin (3 mg, 180 capsules) : US$9.92

Ignoring the cost of ivermectin (since it’s so rarely used and you can’t buy it over-the-counter), here is my comparison of the COST of the I-MASK+ prophylaxis protocol versus a selection of COVID-19 vaccines :

Prophylaxis US Price
FLACC I-MASK+ $0.90 per day
$27 per month
$328 per year
AstraZeneca Vaccine (2 doses) $8
J&J Vaccine (1 dose) $10
Moderna Vaccine (2 doses) $30
Pfizer Vaccine (2 doses) $39

As you can see, the supplements that FLCCC is promoting cost more than COVID-19 vaccines after just 1-2 months!

So it really doesn’t make financial sense to choose daily supplements over COVID-19 vaccines.

In fact, the table above shows that it is not the pharmaceutical companies making the big bucks through vaccines, but the SUPPLEMENT INDUSTRY making money hand over fist!

Fact #5 : Vaccines, Not Ivermectin, Proven To Protect Against COVID-19

We already have prophylaxis for COVID-19 – vaccines. They are cheaper and more convenient than popping pills every single day.

So there is simply no reason to advocate for ivermectin as prophylaxis. More so when vaccines have been proven to protect against COVID-19, while ivermectin has not!

The Pfizer and Moderna mRNA vaccines, for example, were shown in large Phase 3 trials involving over 70,000 people, to offer 94% to 95% efficacy against symptomatic COVID-19.

The latest Lancet study on high-dose ivermectintriple of what FLCCC is advocating – showed no difference in clinical outcomes!

I should also point out that FLCCC has not run any clinical trial to test and confirm the efficacy of their I-MASK+ or MATH+ protocols.

So why bother with ivermectin that has not yet been proven to work? Just stick with COVID-19 vaccines that have already been proven to be safe and effective, cheaper and far more convenient!
