Just as the mainstream media utterly destroyed its credibility in trying to remove President Trump from office, the medical establishment is committing credibility suicide in a mad rush to try to suppress the truth about hydroxychloroquine, an off-patent drug that can save patients from covid-19.
In the latest stunning demonstration of brazen quackery and junk science, both The Lancet and the New England Journal of Medicine have published a widely-touted science paper trashing hydroxychloroquine that turns out to be based on data acquired from a company run in part by a science fiction author and an adult content model. None of the individuals from the company appear to have any background whatsoever in legitimate science or epidemiology. The data from this company, known as Surgisphere, appear to have been wholly fabricated. Yet it was the dominant source of data for the study published by those science journals, neither of which has retracted the flawed study.
The study, published in The Lancet on May 22, 2020, is found at this link. Its authors include Prof Mandeep R Mehra, MD, Sapan S Desai, MD, Prof Frank Ruschitzka, MD and Amit N Patel, MD. Sapan Desai is the founder of Surgisphere, the company that claims to have provided the data for the study.
As The Guardian explains in its investigative report:
“The Lancet study, which listed Desai as one of the co-authors, claimed to have analysed Surgisphere data collected from nearly 96,000 patients with Covid-19, admitted to 671 hospitals from their database of 1,200 hospitals around the world, who received hydroxychloroquine alone or in combination with antibiotics. The negative findings made global news and prompted the WHO to halt the hydroxychloroquine arm of its global trials. But only days later Guardian Australia revealed glaring errors in the Australian data included in the study.”
