A doctor from Mississippi who is against the COVID-19 jabs is speaking out this week to claim that he was fired for trying to treat his coronavirus patients with Ivermectin.
Dr. John Witcher, an emergency room doctor, told CBS News that he was fired from Baptist Memorial Hospital in Yazoo City for taking three COVID-19 patients off Remdesivir and putting them on Ivermectin. Witcher was fired because this move violated his hospital’s policies since The FDA has not approved Ivermectin for treating COVID-19.
Dr. Witcher explained that he believes that Remdesivir “has not proven to be beneficial” to COVID-19 patients.
“I was there at the hospital for three days straight in the ER, and so I felt like this would be a good opportunity to try ivermectin on these inpatient patients that I had been following very closely and just see how well it worked,” Dr. Witcher said.
“I was very surprised that I was basically told to not come back at the end of the day,” he continued. “These patients were under my direct care, and so I felt like taking them off Remdesivir and putting them on ivermectin was the right thing to do at the time.”
Baptist Memorial fired back by confirming that Dr. Witcher “no longer practices medicine as an independent physician” at its Yazoo facility. A spokesperson added that Dr. Witcher was an independent contractor and had not been an employee of Baptist Memorial.
Baptist Memorial went on to say that it follows “the standards of care recommended by the scientific community and our medical team in the prevention and treatment of COVID-19.”
Ivermectin has been seen as a controversial way of treating COVID-19, as the FDA has yet to approve it.
“Ivermectin tablets are approved at very specific doses for some parasitic worms, and there are topical (on the skin) formulations for head lice and skin conditions like rosacea,” stated the FDA which claims that large doses of Ivermectin are dangerous. “Ivermectin is not an anti-viral (a drug for treating viruses).”
However, earlier this year, the popular podcast host Joe Rogan revealed that he used Ivermectin to treat his own case of COVID-19.
“I did that three days in a row,” he said of taking Ivermectin. “And here we are on Wednesday, and I feel great. I really only had one bad day — Sunday sucked.”
Red Voice Media would like to make a point of clarification on why we do not refer to any shot related to COVID-19 as a "vaccine." According to the CDC, the definition of a vaccine necessitates that said vaccine have a lasting effect of at least one year in preventing the contraction of the virus or disease it's intended to fight. Because all of the COVID-19 shots thus far available have barely offered six months of protection, and even then not absolute, Red Voice Media has made the decision hereafter to no longer refer to the Pfizer, Moderna, or Johnson & Johnson substances as vaccinations.
