A NETWORK OF health care providers pocketed millions of dollars selling hydroxychloroquine, ivermectin, and online consultations, according to hacked data provided to The Intercept. The data show that vast sums of money are being extracted from people concerned about or suffering from Covid-19 but resistant to vaccinations or other recommendations of public health authorities.
America’s Frontline Doctors, a right-wing group founded last year to promote pro-Trump doctors during the coronavirus pandemic, is working in tandem with a small network of health care companies to sow distrust in the Covid-19 vaccine, dupe tens of thousands of people into seeking ineffective treatments for the disease, and then sell consultations and millions of dollars’ worth of those medications. The data indicate patients spent at least $15 million — and potentially much more — on consultations and medications combined.
The article would be hilarious except for the potential danger offered to gullible consumers who let their politics supersede science and science-based health care.
Read our recent post about definitive tests on ivermectin published in the New England Journal of Medicine. There are beaucoup legitimate sources for medical information outside the pantries of right-wing nutballs.

Tennessee Senate passes bill to allow over-the-counter sales of ivermectin https://www.wjhl.com/local-coronavirus-coverage/bill-that-would-allow-ivermectin-to-be-sold-over-the-counter-in-tn-passes-senate/
The bill would authorize “ivermectin suitable for human use” to be sold or bought as an over-the-counter medication in Tennessee without a prescription. Pharmacists and other licensed healthcare providers would not be required to provide a consultation prior to the sale either.
“Sales will be pursuant to each pharmacist’s physician collaborative agreement, and to procedures that will be developed by the Tennessee Board of Pharmacy,” a release from the Senate Republican Caucus states in reference to the bill’s passage in the Senate.
The release states that under the bill, any pharmacist or prescriber who acts in good faith would be immune to disciplinary actions or civil liability related to the sale of ivermectin.
The House version of the bill has been placed on the regular calendar for consideration on Thursday, April 7.
I had to take my daughter to be tested for a second time after 2 weeks quarantined because she tested Positive 2 weeks ago. We were in an Urgent Care Center. The Nurse Practitioner swabbed her with 2 swabs, took the refuse and threw it into the open trash can. She left the room. My daughter turned to me and said–“Mom–if this is such a dangerous virus, shouldn’t she have put the trash in the Hazardous Waste receptacle?” I said, “It makes you think, right?” BOOM.

I loved reading your article about how a network of health care providers pocketed millions of dollars selling hydroxychloroquine, ivermectin, without doing any of the research to make sure the drug was safe. It was so interesting to read about how this one particular kooky health care system, America’s Frontline Doctors, exists to promote pro-Trump doctors and the right-wing agenda. It’s so funny that they’re so pro-Trump and so much of their agenda is pro-alternative-medicine that they’re still exposing people to this type of questionable information because they don’t care. It would be so funny except for the potential danger offered to gullible consumers.
