American Treatment Kit Movement Begins in Hawaii?
The Chloroquine Wars Part LXXIX
"Ua Kuluma Ke Kanaka I Ke Aloha.
It is natural for people to behave in a loving way." -Hawaiian proverb
Sunday afternoon I got a call from Honolulu Fire Department Captain Ka’imi Pelekai. He shared with me that the firefighters are fighting vaccine mandates with a lawsuit (Pfizer has been added to the suit over the use of fetal cells in vaccine testing). Such mandates for an experimental program strike me as disturbingly dangerous and immoral---particularly given the lack of long term safety data or time for fertility studies.
But the veteran firefighter also had something extremely positive to share with me---one of the best things I've heard about during the entirety of 2021. In order to keep hospitalizations and mortality down, the firefighters have banded together and established a nonprofit (freecovidhelp.org) organization that designed and intends to deliver their own COVID-19 early treatment kit. They were inspired by such programs in parts of India, Brazil, Mexico, and other nations.
Since hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin are complicated and controversial, and oddly cannot be obtained without a prescription, the kit includes quercetin, a zinc ionophore promoted by Dr. Vladimir Zelenko and others. The kit also includes vitamins/minerals, povidone-iodine, a pulse oximeter, and other items. I am working on an educational packet insert to offer them that will include an array of scientific citations regarding the contents of the kit and information about helpful behaviors such as keeping windows open when and where feasible. I plan to donate the entirety of all new subscriptions to Rounding the Earth received in the next 24 hours to their program, so if you're planning to subscribe to RTE, I'd say this is the best time. I would love to see this program take off, succeed, and set an example that helps end the pandemic.
The Simple, Obvious Program Trend?
Given that the pharmaceutical companies that, along with allied interests, run most of the more centralized nodes of U.S. government, and promote what Peter McCullough appropriately calls "therapeutic nihilism", somebody needs to step up. The "wait at home and do nothing but worry while you get sicker and maybe need hospitalization or die" approach to COVID-19 has done nothing but destroy lives, destroy businesses, and fuel demand for experimental gene therapies. If the first locally-run early treatment kit and education program is run outside the continental states, that may be the best possible start. It's harder to get further from the D.C. Beltway than that.
Who can effectively run such a program?
Perhaps anyone, but what helps the firefighters is that they get calls about people who test positive for SARS-CoV-2. They can give kits to anyone, but targeting people before or just after symptoms emerge, while viral replication has not yet given way to moderate or severe respiratory or cardiac illness, clearly provides the best opportunity to save lives and resources.
So, here's what I would like to do: encourage those of you with the time to set up a call with your local fire department (or other entity), or set up a foundation yourself, to do so. I personally plan to talk with a close friend who serves in the Dallas Fire Department this coming Friday to plant that seed.
There are multiple potential kit designs, and educational materials can be varied. On that note, the volunteer group I've put together over the past several months is moving toward wikifying the hundreds of pages of research notes [on scientific publications and newsworthy information regarding everything pandemic-related], so we will have a great base of information to contribute.
It's time to reject the mindset of cargo cult public health. Participate in the solutions you would like to develop.
