In one of those “I can’t believe it’s come to this” stories, Ohio Capital News reports this morning that a judge in deep red Southwest Ohio Butler County has ordered a Cincinnati hospital chain to treat a COVID-19 patient with Ivermectin.
Butler County Common Pleas Judge Gregory Howard ordered West Chester Hospital, part of the University of Cincinnati network, to treat Jeffrey Smith, 51, with Ivermectin. The order, filed Aug. 23, compels the hospital to provide Smith with 30mg of Ivermectin daily for three weeks.
It goes on to say,
Julie Smith filed the lawsuit on behalf of her husband of 24 years. He tested positive for COVID-19 July 9, was hospitalized and admitted to the ICU July 15, and was sedated and intubated and placed on a ventilator Aug. 1... Julie Smith found Ivermectin on her own and connected with Dr. Fred Wagshul, an Ohio physician who her lawsuit identifies as “one of the foremost experts on using Ivermectin in treating COVID-19.” He prescribed the drug, and the hospital refused to administer it.
This quack, Wagshul, who should lose his medical license, called the “science” behind Ivermectin “irrefutable,” as he panders to the same people who insist the science behind the vaccines is lacking. Just shaking my head. This herd is rapidly thinning.
