With the assistance of professional librarian services, Edmund Fordham unearthed medical documentation dating from the 1918 Spanish Flu epidemic, that observed the positive effect of quinine on suffering patients.

Records from the Burrows & Burrows (1918) Medical Record v94 n25 21 Dec 1918 pp1081-2 included the following observations:

“intravenous injection will prevent or astoundingly diminish the number of later progressive pneumonias and the corresponding high mortality”

“when it is evidenced that spontaneous recovery is becoming doubtful the intravenous injection of quinine is given at once”

Dec 1918 the cases were “too few to permit of scientific certainty”. By Feb 1920 “a large number of cases have been injected”. Burrows & Burrows (1920) Medical Record v97 n6 p 235


“We do not wait to see if the disease will control itself. The earlier the injection is made the better, and to do otherwise is only to run a risk”. “It is certainly advisable to make the injection on or before the third day of the average case”

“… but one injection is required to cause the disappearance of the influenza symptoms”

“The absence of a specific action upon the secondary pneumonia emphasizes the importance of early injection”

Edmund Fordham observed “Recall they didn’t have penicillin in 1918.'”

And further:

“The treatment is equally effective at all ages. The youngest injected was 4 years, the oldest 63”.

I’ve railed against this in the media that we are a part of, and the way that the propaganda reacts to this is, “Ignore it.

The general public should be furious at the way people have been treated in the country by suppression of these drugs, by that kind of website that suppresses the ability of doctors to practice medicine.

A Judge Stands up to a Hospital: “Step Aside” and Give a Dying Man Ivermectin

The judge’s finest moment may have been when he dashed the most glaring myth about ivermectin—that it is not safe, despite decades of use that shows otherwise. Noting that all drugs have side effects, Judge Fullerton listed ivermectin’s effects from a government website.
“(N)umber one, generally well tolerated; number two, dizziness; number three, pruritus; number four, nausea/diarrhea. These are the side effects for the dosage that’s being asked to be administered,” he said. “The risks of these side effects are so minimal that Mr. Ng’s current situation outweighs that risk by one-hundredfold.”
