COVID-19 - Facts or Fears? Solutions or Shutdowns?

A successful infectious disease protocol is called "common sense thinking."

(MYRTLE BEACH, SC) - medical nurse COVID "Physical" distancing and limiting contact with others makes sense until this virus gives us some credible information and treatment. In the meantime, has fear taken over common sense? Now we are dealing with a virus that is taking over our country in lives and livelihoods and rationale and answers are badly skewed.

My question is -- who is calling the shots as far as how people are dying -- accurately?

Should COVID-19 Treatment Involve Ventilators Being Reprogrammed Because of Damage to Lungs?

"COVID does not appear to be a pneumonia, instead resembles something similar to high altitude sickness. We are treating the wrong disease." -Dr. Sidell

(MYRTLE BEACH, SC) - ventilators I recently began following Dr. Sidell on Twitter and was struck by his first-hand accounts of treating patients with COVID-19 on the front lines at hospitals in New York.

This is in no way an endorsement of the protocols this young emergency department physician suggests -- it is more of an eye-opening challenge to question and determine for yourself if we need to rethink the treatment of COVID-19 before it is too late.

Marianne Skolek - USA / Canada

Salem-News.com Investigative Reporter

Email: Marianneskolek@aol.com

Marianne Skolek is an Investigative Reporter focusing on the Prescription Opioid/Heroin Epidemic in the U.S. and Canada. In particular, Marianne has covered the criminal marketing of OxyContin going back to 1999 and continuing to the present.

In 2002, Marianne lost her daughter, Jill to prescribed OxyContin which her physician referred to as "mobility in a bottle." It was, in fact, death in a bottle. After doing extensive research on the maker of OxyContin, Purdue Pharma, Marianne began working with the Department of Justice in Virginia in their criminal investigation into Purdue Pharma and in July 2007 was asked by the U.S. Attorney John Brownlee prosecuting the case to testify against the three CEO's of Purdue Pharma, Michael Friedman, Paul Goldenheim, MD and Howard Udell, Chief Counsel. The CEO's pleaded guilty to misleading the medical profession about the dangers of OxyContin. Marianne also testified against Purdue Pharma at a Judiciary Hearing of the U.S. Senate in July 2007.

In addition, a dangerous and highly addictive opioid named Zohydro has been approved by the FDA against their Advisory Committee's advice and Marianne continues to alert Attorneys General, Senators and Congressmen as to the FDA's irresponsibility in the out of control prescription opioid/heroin epidemic killing and addicting in the tens of thousands each year. Zohydro has been referred to as "heroin in a capsule" and its lowest dosage (10mg) contains twice as much hydrocodone as found in a Vicodin pill. The highest single dose of Zohydro contains as much hydrocodone as 5 to 10 tablets of Vicodin or Lortab. Zohydro mixed with alcohol can be fatal and has no abuse deterrent built in which will make it easy to crush and deliver a fatal dose of the opioid.

Currently Marianne has been instrumental in calling for the termination of Margaret Hamburg, MD, Commissioner of the FDA as well as Bob A. Rappaport, MD and Douglas Throckmorton, MD for their lack of commitment to safeguarding the American public against the prescription opioid/heroin epidemic. Marianne's research, writing and contact with government agencies and attorneys has also exposed the heavily funded pain foundations set up by the pharmaceutical industry and their paid physician spokespersons who convinced the medical boards in 50 states and Canada that dangerous opioids such as OxyContin were less likely to be addictive. These physicians -- in particular Scott Fishman, MD, J. David Haddox, DDS, MD, Perry Fine, MD, Lynn R. Webster, MD, Russell Portenoy, MD also downplayed the risks of addictive opioids in books as authors. These books are still available for sale and promoted to the medical profession.

Here are links to Marianne's involvement in exposing the national conspiracy of the prescription opioid/heroin epidemic, the FDA, the pharmaceutical industry, their pain foundations and paid physician spokespersons.
