There are several very concerning parts to this “Test and Treat” plan. First of all, the pharmacist who is dispensing the Paxlovid appears to also be prescribing it unless these pharmacies are now hiring a bunch of new practitioners. In the past, these tests were conducted by laypeople who worked in the pharmacy. The question I have is, who is actually prescribing these red-flag waving drugs? Because that person would be practicing medicine without a license if they are not authorized to write the prescription. It appears as though that person may be Joe Biden, just as he ran ahead and tried to push boosters before they had even made it to the FDA for consideration!
According to the FDA approved Fact Sheet for Healthcare Providers: Emergency Use Authorization for Paxlovid:
PAXLOVID may only be prescribed for an individual patient by physicians, advanced practice registered nurses, and physician assistants.
Immediate prescriptions could be given to people without thorough consideration of other prescriptions and the long list of contraindications. Especially if someone without the right credentials is handling individual cases. According to the American Council on Science and Health:
For people who aren’t taking prescription drugs, the plan is straightforward, but, as I wrote last month, Paxlovid consists of two different medicines: nirmatrelvir, the antiviral drug, and ritonavir, a “booster,” which significantly decreases the metabolism of nirmatrelvir, permitting it to remain in the blood at higher levels and for longer. (See The Drug That Makes Paxlovid So Effective Can Also Make It Dangerous.) The ritonavir has the potential to cause serious problems for people who are taking certain prescription drugs such as statins (for high cholesterol), antiarrhythmics, blood thinners, sedatives, and at least two asthma drugs.
It is here where the program could face difficulties. To prevent dangerous drug-drug interactions, the dispensing pharmacist must have an accurate list of other drugs (and herbal supplements) being taken by every patient.
And that list of dangerous interactions is long and common. Contraindications also include hormonal birth control, anticonvulsants, sedatives, antipsychotics, antifungals, several anti-cancer drugs, and antidepressants. The list goes on for several pages. As mentioned above, statins, are a concern. These cholesterol lowering drugs alone are taken by up to 40 million Americans.
All people would need, according to Biden’s State of the Union, is a positive test. Did you see that quote on false positives? How many people could be taking this dangerous drug due to an inaccurate test? There’s a potential recognized by the FDA of 70%?! And somehow, these unreliable tests are dictating the whole process.
Paxlovid is authorized for people who are at high risk for severe COVID, not the entire population. Also, I find it disturbing the EUA was granted for people aged 12 and up, however the studies were done on those ages 18 and up. We have no idea how this drug will affect a young, pubescent, developing teen.
In reality, we don’t know how it will affect anyone long-term. It is still being evaluated. This drug was just authorized in December with only 28 days of follow-up. We don’t have any data to consider for long-term effects. I guess in that way it will match the vaccines!
Let’s look at that “main outcome” benchmark used under the FDA’s EUA:
The main outcome measured in the trial was the proportion of people who were hospitalized due to COVID-19 or died due to any cause during 28 days of follow-up. (emphasis added)
Nowhere is safety mentioned as a concern. And anyone who died due to any cause affected the numbers? So, wait, an untreated person in a car accident could skew numbers for efficacy? Is that what they are saying? Because that’s what it sounds like they are saying.
Follow the Numbers
I see this plan ending much like many of the policies and procedures surrounding COVID. Costing the American tax-payer a lot of money, especially in waste and unwanted product, as well as the potential for devastating effects on those who take the drug. Nearly half of Biden’s 500 million “free” tests he launched in January have gone unclaimed. And with mask mandates crumbling around the nation, how many of those 400 million “free” N-95 masks that he just started handing out in January are going to be claimed anytime soon?
According to an internal memo, it seems less and less of this is being dictated by science, and more and more is being indicated by poll numbers and mid-term elections. One thing’s for sure, they can’t keep their science and plans straight as polls plummet.
