Dr. Fauci / NIH knew that Remdesivir was unlikely to be effective for COVID-19, when they promoted it over Hydroxychloroquine.
On April 13, 2020 the paper
by Duxin Sun, PhD was accepted by The AAPS Journal , “An Official Journal of the American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists” (not related to the great Association of American Physicians and Surgeons).
It was published only on May 26 and under an entirely different title
The new title conceals the paper’s conclusion that Remdesivir is not effective for COVID-19. While The AAPS Journal was sitting on the accepted paper, the corrupt NIH COVID-19 Treatment Panel issued its original (April 21) Guidelines putting untested ineffective Remdesivir ahead of already proven Hydroxychloroquine & Hydroxychloroquine + Azithromycin treatment. On May 12, it recommended against clinically proven Hydroxychloroquine + Azithromycin treatment. On May 22, The Lancet published anti-Hydroxychloroquine Mehra et al. based on fake data. Four days later, when Remdesivir looked like a white knight, the article saying it lacks adequate efficacy was published under a misleading title, and went unnoticed. An example of Google search for hydroxychloroquine on May 27 (clean state):
Only when a report of adverse effects of Remdesivir (Liver injury in remdesivir-treated COVID-19 patients, Hepatology International, July 28) and negative conclusions about its efficiency (Covid-19: Remdesivir probably reduces recovery time, but evidence is uncertain, The BMJ, July 30) appeared, Fauci & co. stopped pushing Remdesivir. Now they back convalescent plasma. Convalescent plasma is effective and was known to be effective all the time they pushed Remdesivir. Of course, plasma therapy requires donors of blood with anti-bodies, and be used only in hospitals. Plasma is not a substitute for an early hydroxychloroquine-based treatment or prophylaxis.
Dr. Anthony Fauci used to be close to Hillary Clinton. From Fauci’s email to Hillary’s office (June 2012):
“Wow! Very rarely does a speech bring me to tears, but this one did it. Talk about telling it like it is. This was a bases-loaded home run. Please tell the Secretary that I love her more than ever you guys too, of course.
