An Open Letter to Governor Ron DeSantis
Dear Governor DeSantis;
The vaccines developed and distributed under “Operation Warp Speed” are now, and have been for some time, showing themselves to be ineffective to the point the CDC is recommending booster shots to restore their effectiveness. This points out the need to expand the COVID-19 response toolbox immediately. Focusing on vaccinations, especially those with real (in some cases) and perceived (in other cases) detrimental side-effects to the exclusion of other preventive and therapeutic measures, is unwise. As I believe you have realized, vaccinations will not stop this corona virus as it is here to stay. Other effective preventive and therapeutic measures are needed.
I applaud your formation of rapid response teams to dispense monoclonal antibodies to help prevent hospitalizations and deaths, but more needs done. Specifically, I’m asking you to direct the Florida Department of Health to issue authorizations allowing the use of prevention and treatment protocols incorporating Ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine. The scientific and anecdotal evidence that these treatments work is available, yet it is being suppressed by those who have a vested interest in the big pharma vaccination approach.
Every Floridian should be able to rapidly obtain, or be issued in advance, a COVID-19 prophylaxis kit containing Ivermectin or Hydroxychloroquine and other medications with instructions for use that could be started at the first signs or symptoms of the virus. As with monoclonal antibodies, these kits should be made available without the need for a prescription. Early treatment has always been the key. The public health system failed its citizens by not recommending early treatment with off-label medicines, instead advising them to stay home until they were so sick as to require hospitalization.
Get these protocols into Floridians’ hands, tell them to use them at the first sign of illness, and watch hospitalizations and deaths decrease.
Sincerely, Thomas W. Bradley Florida Citizen
