Letter To Senate On NIH/NIAID Malfeasance And COVID Early Treatment Suppression

January 18, 2022

Letter to the Senate:

I write to you to share the concerns of over 15,000 physicians and medical scientists who have signed a declaration taking issue with the current management of the government’s COVID-19 response [1].

The FDA recently issued a notice [2] to the Federation of State Medical Boards, warning them that pharmacies and doctors should not be selling or prescribing ivermectin under the claim that ivermectin can treat or prevent COVID-19. Doctors around the country are being threatened by medical boards, at the direction of the FDA, with having their licenses revoked if they offer ivermectin for the treatment of COVID-19, even though newly leaked documents [3] show the government knew ivermectin was a highly effective treatment for COVID-19 during the early stages of the pandemic.

In March of 2018, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) was approached by a company called EcoHealth Alliance (EHA), who were responding to a DARPA grant soliciting new ways to prevent emerging pathogenic threats. EHA put forth a proposal [4] that entailed first creating a human transmissible bat borne coronavirus which would then be used to create a vaccine against the newly engineered virus for wild bats. Once a vaccine was created for the newly engineered virus, wild bats would then be inoculated against the engineered virus supposedly to prevent such a virus from emerging naturally from random mutations on its own.

The research proposal, named Project DEFUSE, was rejected [5] by DARPA over safety concerns and the notion that it violated the moratorium on gain-of-function research. After receiving DARPA’s rejection letter, EHA simply carried out the research they had proposed to DARPA under an already existing NIH-NIAID grant program [6]. DARPA became alarmed when it learned that EHA had been conducting the previously proposed research under another program grant, because they knew exactly how dangerous the research was and that it was clearly related to the current SARS-CoV-2 pandemic.

In August of 2021, a DARPA intelligence analyst sent a report [7] to the Marine Corps Inspector General detailing what DARPA knew about the EHA project that was proposed to DARPA. The DARPA report stated that SARS-CoV-2 virus matches the SARS bat vaccine variants the NIH-EHA program was making in Wuhan.  Further, it stated the government knew in April of 2020 that ivermectin, hydroxychloroquine and interferon were EFFECTIVE at treating the SARS-CoV-2 virus, and that the government engaged in a massive information suppression campaign to prevent the public from learning the truth about it. This report was just obtained and made public by the press as of 1/11/2022.  The report and supplemental documentation can be viewed at the referenced link [3].

Recently leaked emails [8] between the former director of the NIH Francis Collins and NIAID director Anthony Fauci; and several of the world’s leading virologists, show Collins and Fauci were very keen to “put down this very destructive conspiracy” of a lab leak hypothesis, even though they knew EHA was engaged in creating viruses identical to SARS-CoV-2 at the WIV lab, and doing so using taxpayer funding that they themselves had approved. 

One virologist in communication with the NIH team studying the origins of the SARS-CoV-2 virus stated, “I really can’t think of a plausible natural scenario where you get from the bat virus or one very similar to it to nCoV where you insert exactly 4 amino acids 12 nucleotide that all have to be added at the exact same time to gain this function – that and you don’t change any other amino acid in S2? I just can’t figure out how this gets accomplished in nature [8].” 

After the team of virologists studying the origins of the SARS-CoV-2 virus concluded their research, they submitted their paper to Fauci before publication for him to review. In the original draft they submitted, they stated the most likely origin was from a lab leak. Three days after Fauci received the paper for review, the team completely changed their hypothesis and published a paper saying it was impossible for the virus to have come from a lab [8].

The reason given [9] by the virologists in the revised paper for stating it could not have come from a lab was that the virus, “would have then required repeated passage in cell culture or animals with ACE2 receptors similar to those of humans, but such work has also not previously been described.” – from the leaked DARPA and NIH grant papers, we now know that is EXACTLY what EHA was doing at the WIV lab.

I mention the above story about the NIH and NIAID suppressing science about the origins of the virus because it goes to a pattern of abuse and it shows a willingness by the NIH and NIAID to corrupt the scientific process to cover for their own malfeasance.

Currently there are 52 peer reviewed studies [10], with several more undergoing review, virtually all showing ivermectin to be highly effective at treating COVID-19.  These published peer-reviewed studies encompass 18,768 patients, authored by over 538 scientists.  There are a total of 73 published studies on ivermectin as it relates to the treatment of COVID-19 patients, encompassing 56,774 patients and 691 authors.  There is evidence of a negative publication bias, and the probability that an ineffective treatment generated results as positive as the 73 studies is estimated to be 1 in 619 billion [10]. 

There are presently over 20 countries distributing ivermectin as a treatment for COVID-19 [10]. In February, the chairman of the Tokyo Medical Association, Haruo Ozaki, called on Japanese doctors to implement ivermectin to combat COVID-19 [11], as have many other doctors around the world who are not subject to the suppression campaign being waged by the NIH. Japan now has one of the lowest COVID-19 death rates in the world [12].

The Indian province of Uttar Pradesh also ranks among the lowest COVID-19 death rates in the world [13]. Looking at the chart of daily deaths on the referenced website [14], we can see that after the provincial government distributed care packages containing ivermectin in mid-May, the death rate in the province fell off a cliff and has since completely flatlined [15]. The effect was so dramatic that the Indian Bar Association sued WHO Chief Scientist Dr. Soumya Swaminathan for misleading the Indian government about the effectiveness of ivermectin [16], while directly blaming her for thousands of deaths. Meanwhile, the American press was busy writing “fact checks” about this, claiming there is “no evidence” that ivermectin was responsible for the elimination of COVID-19 deaths in India [17]. 

In contrast to the overwhelming evidence demonstrating ivermectin’s efficacy, the FDA approved the antiviral drug remdesivir, produced by Gilead Science, under an EUA based on a single study [18] composed of 1,063 patients. Seven members of the panel responsible for determining COVID-19 protocols happen to have ties [19] to Gilead.

When the government of India investigated remdesivir, they found the drug to not only be ineffective, but it also complicated recovery and increased mortality [15]. Dr Surya Kant Tripathi, who is the head of the Respiratory Medicine Department, King George Medical University, Lucknow, stated, “All trials are saying that this drug is not effective in the treatment of COVID-19, rather it is complicating and resulting in mortality of patients. At so many centers, remdesivir trails were stopped. Also, remdesivir is costing minimum of Rs 5,000 per vial. [15]” US scientists reached similar conclusions [20], yet it remains a recommended treatment by the NIH.  Hospitals are being enormously incentivized to treat with it over repurposed medications due to the federal New Technology Add-On Payment program [21].  Some hospitals are being reimbursed up to $100,000 per COVID-19 patient if they can be put on a ventilator and remdesivir.

It has now come to light that the Pfizer vaccine trial [22] showed an elevated all-cause mortality in the vaccinated group, and that most of the placebo control group was subsequently inoculated with live vaccine after only four months of observation, making long term follow-up comparisons between the groups impossible. This is OUTRAGEOUS! Several large studies [23] have just come out showing the vaccines are associated with HIGHER infection rates and deaths!

It shocks the conscience that the US media has reported virtually none of this, but it comes as no surprise given that the majority of US media organizations are owned and funded in large part by the same asset management firms that own and fund the pharmaceutical industry [24]. This montage [25] of “brought to you by Pfizer” ads that were run before news shows highlights the issue better than any report ever could.

It is unprecedented that doctors are being threatened by medical boards, hospital administration and the FDA for legally prescribing an FDA approved drug off-label, when that drug is on the WHO Essential Medicine list and it has a better safety record [26] than any over-the-counter NSAID like aspirin or ibuprofen.  Studies have shown ivermectin is safe even at 10 times [27] the maximum FDA approved dose. Further, the precautionary principle [28] requires the NIH to recommend ivermectin unless they have proof that the risks outweigh the benefits, which they do not.

The FDA, NIH and NIAID put pressure on state level medical boards to go after doctors for prescribing off-label repurposed drugs for the early treatment of COVID-19 by coercing national level medical organizations, like the Federation of State Medical Boards, and by threatening to withhold funding from hospitals and research organizations that do not go along with the witch-hunt. In the face of this, the International Alliance of Physicians and Medical Scientists has garnered more than 15,000 signatures of  doctors who have signed a declaration [29] denouncing these actions.  The declaration calls for unrestricted access to all drugs that have been given regulatory approval, prohibiting health agencies from interfering in physicians’ prescription practices, long term safety studies of the vaccines, limiting vaccines to consenting adults, and an end to any vaccine mandates for those with natural immunity to SARS-CoV-2.

To this day, the only early treatment medications “authorized” by the NIH are expensive monoclonal antibodies which must be administered in-patient and are not widely available or easy to get, even though we now know a wide range of therapeutics are able to treat the disease at an early stage. People are needlessly dying every day because the NIH is actively working to stop cheap and effective repurposed drugs from being prescribed as early treatments in order to drive up the profits of the pharmaceutical industry. The reasons behind this are clearly laid out in this Roosevelt Institute whitepaper [30] on regulatory capture by the pharmaceutical industry.

Given these facts, the HHS Office of Inspector General needs to investigate: 

  • EcoHealth Alliance for violating the moratorium on gain of function research.

  • The NIH and NIAID for funding and approving dangerous prohibited research that led to the creation of SARS-CoV-2 virus.

  • The financial ties of NIH and NIAID leadership to the pharmaceutical industry, and the role they may play in the suppression of cheap and effective repurposed drugs used in the early treatment of COVID-19, as well as the promotion of dangerous experimental drugs.

  • Whether the NIH and NIAID leadership put pressure on any medical journals to retract or refuse publication of papers supporting the use of repurposed drugs.

The legislature must act to:

  • Prohibit the FDA, or other federal public health agencies, from declaring medications or vaccines are “safe and effective” while they are being used under an Emergency Use Authorization and limit their use consenting adults only.

  • Require the immediate and complete public disclosure of all research and documentation filed with any federal public health agency for any medication or vaccine seeking approval under an Emergency Use Authorization.

  • Prohibit the New Technology Add-On Payment (NTAP) scheme from providing bonuses to hospitals for using treatments that are under an Emergency Use Authorization.

  • Make liable any employer or educational institution requiring a vaccine as a condition of employment or enrollment for any damages resulting from the side-effects thereof.

I hope this letter finds you well, and I hope you keep the information here in mind should anyone you love ever become ill with COVID-19.
