WILL CAIN (HOST): A study published in the American Journal of Epidemiology by Dr. Harvey Risch, a professor of epidemiology at Yale by the way, we're talking about serious people here, said the following, estimated mortality is less than 20 percent as compared to the 10,000 Americans now dying each week, so it was a little bit earlier in the pandemic. Now these medications need to be made widely available and promoted immediately for physicians to prescribe. Last night, Dr. Risch told us here on this program that this therapeutic treatment could reduce hospitalization and death by as much as 85 percent. 85 percent. But that conversation, it's not considered by the media. It's mocked, much less by the scientific expert consensus, only the vaccine can be discussed. Second, ivermectin, it's an anti-parasitic drug used as an anti-viral for children in Africa, and some studies have shown the following. Ivermectin treatment was associated with lower mortality during treatment of COVID-19 especially in patients with severe pulmonary involvement, randomized controlled trials are needed to confirm these findings. And no doubt more studies need to be done. But you can't even discuss ivermectin. Professor Bret Weinstein's popular DarkHorse Podcast has been censored by YouTube for doing just that, only discuss the vaccine.


Look, we can't just fight each other about the vaccine. There are those, again, who fit the risk profile who should get the vaccine. But if we just keep fighting each other over the vaccine, we're not fighting COVID. And isn't that the goal? To keep everyone safe and free? And look, some people can't get the vaccine or simply won't. Is Fauci's solution to make them?

And -- and what if Fauci's one solution doesn't work? Just entertain that idea for one moment. What if it doesn't work? Won't it cost lives if we pursue simply one solution, put all our eggs in one basket? Won't it cost lives if we can't even discuss any alternatives?
