At the Start of the Pandemic, Dr. Paul Marik Handed Health Authorities the Way to Save Millions—But No One Wanted to Listen.
Now the CDC says they "fell short", but it's more than that. Their failures — and those of other public health agencies — ultimately cost hundreds of thousands of lives here & across the globe.
On March 24, 2020, as COVID began raging across the U.S. and people were dying in alarming numbers, Dr. Paul Marik — the world’s most highly published practicing critical care physician and esteemed professor of medicine — wrote and sent what has now become a letter of global, historic and IMMEDIATE importance. The letter—with a critical, lifesaving attachment—was addressed to then Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York, who received the letter via fax to his office.
Then Dr. Marik waited.
After two weeks, as COVID claimed life after life in increasingly horrifying numbers, and despite desperate follow up inquiries, no response came from Governor Cuomo, who was busy holding daily televised press briefings featuring slide after slide illuminating the calamitous humanitarian crisis unfolding in New York. But not one of his press events included a single slide containing Dr. Marik’s lifesaving information — which the governor’s office had in its possession.
While he waited to hear from the governor’s office, Dr. Marik spent untold hours huddling in deep academic and clinical discussions with several colleagues—some of the country’s foremost critical care physicians and top experts in their field—to share and refine the COVID-19 protocol he developed and sent to the governor—and tried to share with Dr. Anthony Fauci, the CDC, the NIH, etc., but came up with ZERO responses.
That protocol they discussed would soon come to be known as the MATH+ Protocol — Methylprednisolone (a steroid), Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C), Thiamine, Heparin and several additional co-interventions. The group of eight esteemed physicians turned Dr. Marik’s plaintive letter into a nationally distributed press release which included the protocol that was already saving nearly every critically ill COVID patient in Dr. Marik’s Norfolk, Virginia ICU.
The release was conveyed to federal health agencies, health officials and numerous elected officials — including the White House where it was received via courier.
It was the first press release ever distributed by what would soon become the FLCCC Alliance.
BUT NO ONE RESPONDED. NOT THE GOVERNOR OF NEW YORK. NOT THE CDC, THE FDA OR THE NIH. NOT THE WHITE HOUSE. NOT THE MEDIA. NOT EVEN ONE ELECTED OFFICIAL. NO ONE.
Here is what Dr. Marik wrote, in part, to Governor Cuomo on March 4, 2020:
“While it is true that there is no definitive treatment for COVID-19 there is substantial information on treatments that could be of potential benefit. Many of these are FDA approved drugs with an extremely good safety profile. In addition, simple interventions such as Vitamin C, Quercetin, Zinc and melatonin hold great promise in the mitigation of this disease; however as big Pharma will not profit from these agents, it gets no attention. The use of these drugs for COVID-19 are supported by experimental and pre-clinical studies published in the most respected peer reviewed Journals (available on request). In addition, they are cheap and safe; so what does one have to lose?
Dr. Fauci and others are promoting the idea of performing randomized controlled trials (RCTs). I believe that it is unethical to do such trials. How can you offer patients a placebo when testing a drug that you believe may have clinical efficacy? Every patient needs to get the best treatment we can offer; we would expect no less for our loved ones. Furthermore, once these trials are eventually completed we will all be dead, or the pandemic will be over! This does not mean we should not be studying the impact of these interventions; detailed observational studies can provide very useful information."
Now it’s August, 2022. Over one million Americans are dead. Over six and a half million have died worldwide, with hundreds of thousands of others experiencing symptoms of long COVID or vaccine injury. But just this week—two and half years after Dr. Marik, arguably the nation’s premier critical care physician, handed the world the way to save millions—the CDC announced a restructuring of the agency and admitted to systemic policy failures throughout the pandemic.
The CDC noted that their flawed policies included a misguided focus on the publishing of scientific studies—rather than urgent action…for which Dr. Marik pleaded. They say they failed to act quickly…which Dr. Marik begged them to do. They said they should have recognized the value of public health efforts…which Dr. Marik had proposed and delivered to them on silver platter. They said they should have heeded the potentially lifesaving and immediately actionable information available to them in preprint studies (pre-peer reviewed medical papers.) Does that mean they now also regret their fatally flawed rejection and vilification of ivermectin when the brilliant FLCCC physician/scholars, led by Dr. Marik, recognized the data signal in dozens of studies showing that ivermectin was safe, cheap, globally available and overwhelmingly efficacious in the prevention and treatment of every stage of COVID-19?
These unconscionable failures led to hundreds of thousands of completely unnecessary deaths during the course of the pandemic. While Dr. Marik and the other FLCCC physicians were saving their patients in the early days of the pandemic with the MATH+ Protocol, America’s public health agencies sat on their hands as people perished NEEDLESSLY waiting for a Randomized Controlled Trial (RCT) on steroids to be published to PROVE it worked. They weren’t about to recommend it until they had an RCT in hand…the dying be damned. In late June of 2020, the UK’s Oxford University published the results of its Recovery Trial, which showed that COVID was indeed a steroid responsive disease. In fact, the Oxford researchers had to stop the trial early because too many of the control subjects were dying because they did not receive the steroid they needed to survive. But Dr. Marik, Dr. Pierre Kory and the other physicians of the FLCCC already knew that—and said so. The sound-waves of their raised voices somehow could not penetrate the ears of those who had tragically and fatally placed them on permanent mute.
When the FLCCC told the world of ivermectin’s ability to save millions and help bring the pandemic to an end, this time the CDC—and the equally complicit FDA, NIH and the WHO—responded to the FLCCC by participating in a well-coordinated government agency/media/Big Pharma campaign to censor them, mock them, defame them, and call for disciplinary measures to be taken against them and any other healthcare provider who believed like them. They tried like hell to do whatever it took to withhold from its own citizens a lifesaving component of a multi-modal protocol that saved millions in the countries where it was being used. They called it “horse paste.” They lied. God, how they lied—for the vile love of money.
CDC, no need to restructure. RESIGN. ALL OF YOU. GET THE HELL OUT. The magnitude of your systemic failures — and those of the other duplicitous “public health” agencies, along with Big Pharma and the media —can only be measured in one way: By the body count of murdered citizens.
A REMINDER THAT THE FLCCC ALLIANCE WAS FIRST…
…to recognize that COVID was a steroid-responsive disease
…to identify the respiratory pneumonia caused by COVID as “organizing pneumonia.”
…to identify COVID-19 as an airborne transmitted disease
…to show that cleansing the pharyngeal space with virucidals reduces the COVID-19 viral load.
…to show that fluvoxamine’s antiviral properties were effective in the treatment of COVID-19.
…to report that anti-coagulation (blood thinners like Heparin) reduced the risk of clotting in COVID-19 patients
…to show that there was a powerful data signal from rapidly emerging studies across the world that ivermectin had the capacity to prevent and treat COVID-19.
