Well, the icu's in germany running full.
Wake up, Aidan. The ICUs in Germany and around the world would be empty if all the judges in the world ORDERED THE HOSPITALS to administer ivermectin without any hesitation.

Now please note this article carefully and tell your hospital administrator to stop being a criminal. Here is how an honest judge saved a man's life:

Covid Patient’s Life Saved After Judge Ordered Hospital To Treat With Ivermectin

A Hong Kong man visiting Illinois to celebrate his only granddaughter’s first birthday found himself in the hospital with Covid in what became a life-threatening battle.

The grandfather, 71-year-old Sun Ng, is alive to tell the story thanks to a judge who respects freedom of choice and a man named Dr. Alan Bain, who was willing to prescribe him the controversial drug ivermectin.

In October, a hospital in the Chicago area refused to give Mr. Ng the Nobel Prize-winning, FDA-approved drug that his doctor prescribed him because Dr. Bain is not vaccinated for Covid.

Edward Hospital argued allowing Sun Ng to be treated with ivermectin could result in side effects, that it would violate their policies, and that a court forcing the issue would be “extraordinary” judicial overreach.

By November, Sun’s daughter Dr. Man Kwan Ng filed a lawsuit against the hospital in an attempt to have him treated with ivermectin as he was on a ventilator and not doing well.
A photograph of Ng showed the grandfather lying in the hospital as his health deteriorated.


Fox 32 Chicago
The family attorney Kirstin Erickson told Fox 32, “Mr. Ng is as good as dead in the picture, which was taken on November 4. And at that point the hospital still wouldn’t give the ivermectin.”


In a November 5 decision, DuPage County Circuit Court Judge Paul Fullerton ruled, “I can’t think of a more extraordinary situation than when we are talking about a man’s life. I am not forcing this hospital to do anything other than to step aside. I am just asking—or not asking—I am ordering through the Court’s power to allow Dr. Bain to have the emergency privileges and administer this medicine.”

At one point, Judge Fullerton cited a government website to prove ivermectin is not a dangerous drug, telling the court, “(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. The risks of these side effects are so minimal that Mr. Ng’s current situation outweighs that risk by one-hundredfold.”

Between November 8 and November 12, Dr. Bain was allowed to administer a five-day course of 24 milligrams of ivermectin.

Dr. Ng said her father’s recovery “is beyond our expectations,” and thanked both Judge Fullerton and Dr. Bain, saying, “Our family especially thanks Judge Paul Fullerton. Without him, we couldn’t bring my father home and couldn’t see him smile at us again. We also sincerely thank Dr. Alan Bain for walking along with us and his administration of ivermectin to my father.”

“Every day after ivermectin, there was accelerated and stable improvement,” Dr. Bain explained. “Three times we’ve shown something. There’s a signal of benefit for ventilator patients.”

By November 16, Ng was out of the ICU and breathing without supplemental oxygen, and he was finally released from the hospital on November 27.

“My father’s recovery is amazing,” Dr. Man Kwan Ng said in a statement. “My father is a tough man. He was working so hard to survive, and of course, with God’s holding hands. He weaned off oxygen about three days after moving out of the ICU. He started oral feeding before hospital discharge. He returned home without carrying a bottle of oxygen and a feeding tube installed to his stomach. He can now stand with a walker at the bedside and practice stepping. After being sedated for a month on a ventilator in ICU, his performance is beyond our expectations. Praise the Lord.”

The medical establishment is so hungry for money and power that it would rather watch tens of thousands of Americans die on ventilators all because ivermectin is cheaply made and therefore not profitable.

Back in December 2020, Dr. Pierre Kory went before a Senate committee to explain the effectiveness of ivermectin. Is it any wonder that he went on to treat 200 members of Congress.

What we should do is all wear masks and social distance for two weeks until we can flatten the curve.
What needs to be flattened are two evil individuals -- Joseph Biden and Anthony Fauci. Then every curve would be automatically flattened.

Marcus Lamb, head of Christian network Daystar who has been a vocal opponent of the coronavirus vaccine, has died of COVID-19, his family announced
Marcus Lamb had encouraged unapproved treatments for COVID-19, including ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine. He called ivermectin, an anti-parasitic drug that federal health officials have not approved for treating the virus, a "miracle drug." The Food and Drug Administration, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the National Institutes of Health have warned Americans against using the drug to treat COVID-19.
Joni Lamb said they were trying to treat the virus "with the different protocols we use, including the ones we talk about on Daystar."

'It's making a real difference': Faith leaders are encouraging vaccinations, framing the decision as a religious obligation
Vaccine misinformation: Texas hospital suspends doctor for spreading false information about COVID-19, vaccines
About a week before Lamb's death, his son, Jonathan, said on a Nov. 23 broadcast that he believed his dad's illness was a "spiritual attack from the enemy" in order to "take down" his dad.
It's unclear if Lamb was vaccinated. Arnold Torres, a spokesperson for Daystar, confirmed Lamb's death in a statement to USA TODAY but declined to comment on his vaccination status.
"He will always be remembered for his fierce love of God, people, and his family," the statement said.

Joining the broadcast from the hospital, Joni Lamb asked viewers to pray for her husband's "lungs to clear" and "his oxygen levels to continue to be strong."
The Lamb family and Daystar have made controversial statements about the pandemic and promoted misinformation about the virus and vaccines. The network hosted prominent anti-vaccine advocate Robert F. Kennedy Jr., whose Instagram account was removed for sharing debunked claims about COVID-19 vaccines.
Daystar's website also peddles a host of misinformation about vaccines, urging readers to rethink getting vaccinated and raising concerns about vaccine mandates. For one episode, titled "A Hidden Crisis," the Daystar website says, "What if the most dangerous thing your child could face in life is the very thing you’re told by your doctor is safe?"

Vaccines remain the safest and most effective way to prevent serious illness, hospitalization and death from COVID-19. Meanwhile, amid mounting concerns over the omicron variant, the CDC is encouraging Americans to get their booster shots as soon as possible.
White evangelical Christians have resisted COVID-19 vaccines at higher rates than other U.S. religious groups and report greater vaccine hesitancy. Experts point to a mistrust of government and mainstream science, fed by online conspiracy theories, as reason behind the group's distrust of vaccines.

I've seen years of information and long ago made up my mind. No amount of media wizardry and computer-assisted schemes are going to change my mind. I don't care what anybody thinks, says, or does, I won't be taking the jab! You are free to do what you want.

I don't doubt Covid exists. I don't doubt people die from it. But if this guy wasn't vaccinated, that was his choice. I assume he was a Christ follower so he now is at peace with God. Probably in glory, celebrating having run the race faithfully til the end.
To live is Christ, to die is gain, right?

Well, the icu's in germany running full.
The goal in this pandemie Was always that we will not come into the situation that we could not help those which need medical help.
Till now to less people take the vaccine.
To mandatory the vaccine is the last way.
But present the mayoriy of the chitzienship would support it.
There are reasons why people would not need to take the vaccine(health problems) and those would be respectet under a mandatory.
So i would support it. Of course!
You are misrepresenting the situation though. The German healthcare system has been overwhelmed for years.
Overstretched healthcare systems & a drive for more vaccines in Europe didn't begin with Covid-19


These were complaints in 2015:
  • German hospitals are increasing security to protect doctors and nurses from violent attacks by migrants who are unhappy with the medical treatment they are receiving.
  • Critics are warning that German taxpayers will end up paying billions of euros to provide healthcare for a never-ending wave of asylum seekers. This is in addition to the billions of euros already being spent to provide newcomers with food, clothing and shelter.
  • In addition to the massive economic and social costs, as well as the burden of increased crime, including a rape epidemic, Germans are now facing the risk of being exposed to exotic diseases — and tuberculosis.
  • Roughly 5% of asylum seekers are carrying resistant germs. In real numbers, this works out to around 75,000 newcomers with highly infectious diseases. — Dr. Jan-Thorsten Gräsner, director of the Institute for Rescue and Emergency Medicine.
  • Twenty types of vaccines are now in short supply, and 16 others are no longer available at all. Because of production bottlenecks, some vaccines will not become available until 2017.
  • Muslim women refuse to be treated by male doctors, and many Muslim men refuse to be treated by females. — Max Kaplan, director of the Bavarian Medical Board.
  • German media outlets are downplaying the extent of the healthcare problem, apparently to avoid spreading fear or provoking anti-immigrant sentiments.

The influx of more than one million asylum seekers from Africa, Asia and the Middle East is placing unprecedented strain on Germany's healthcare system.
Hospitals, clinics and emergency rooms across Germany are being filled to capacity with migrants suffering maladies of all kinds, and medical personnel, including thousands of volunteers, are increasingly complaining of burnout.
Diseases are also reappearing that have not been seen in Germany for years. German public health officials are now on the lookout for Crimean Congo hemorrhagic fever, diphtheria, Ebola, hepatitis, HIV/AIDS, malaria, measles, meningitis, mumps, polio, scabies, tetanus, tuberculosis, typhus and whooping cough. As refugee shelters fill to overflowing, doctors are also on high alert for mass outbreaks of influenza and Norovirus.
Compounding the challenge, tens of thousands of migrants arriving in Germany — particularly migrant children — have not been immunized, and German doctors are finding that needed vaccines are not readily available due to a lack of supply. Some German parents are panicking that there are not enough vaccines to immunize their own children.
Many migrants are also suffering from a host of traumas and mental illnesses. According to the Chamber of German Psychotherapists (Bundespsychotherapeutenkammer), at least half of all migrants arriving in Germany have psychological problems, including post-traumatic stress disorder and depression, and roughly 40% have contemplated suicide.
German hospitals are also being forced to hire a virtual army of interpreters so that doctors can communicate with asylum seekers, who speak dozens of languages, dialects and variants.
At the same time, German hospitals are increasing security to protect doctors and nurses from violent attacks by migrants who are unhappy with the medical treatment they are receiving.
Critics are warning that German taxpayers will end up paying billions of euros to provide healthcare for a never-ending wave of asylum seekers. This is in addition to the billions of euros already being spent to provide newcomers with food, clothing and shelter.
Many say the German government failed fully to consider the unforeseen consequences of opening the door to so many migrants. In addition to the massive economic and social costs, as well as the burden of increased crime, including a rape epidemic, Germans are now facing the risk of being exposed to exotic diseases.
German media outlets are downplaying the extent of the healthcare problem, apparently to avoid spreading fear or provoking anti-immigrant sentiments. But a growing number of German healthcare professionals are sounding the alarm.
In an interview with Die Welt, Dr. Michael Melter, the chief physician at the University Hospital Regensburg, said that migrants are arriving at his hospital with illnesses that are hardly ever seen in Germany anymore. "Some of the ailments I have not seen for 20 or 25 years," he said, "and many of my younger colleagues have actually never seen them."
Marc Schreiner, director of international relations for the German Hospital Federation (Deutschen Krankenhausgesellschaft), has echoed Melter's concerns:
"In the clinics, it is becoming increasingly common to see patients with diseases that were considered to have been eradicated in Germany, such as scabies. These diseases must be reliably diagnosed, which is a challenge."​
Schreiner said that in cases of highly contagious diseases, including tuberculosis, patients must be quarantined, an expensive procedure, the costs of which are paid for by German taxpayers.
According to Schreiner, about 15% of the newly arriving migrants require immediate medical treatment. With 1.5 million asylum seekers expected to arrive in Germany in 2015, this means that 225,000 migrants will have an urgent need for medical attention.
Siegfried Hasenbein, director of the Bavarian Hospital Association (Bayerische Krankenhausgesellschaft), estimates that in 2015, between 25,000 and 30,000 migrants will be treated in Bavarian hospitals alone. In addition, this year between 75,000 and 90,000 migrants will receive ambulatory or outpatient care.
According to Hasenbein, these numbers appear insignificant when compared to the three million hospital visits that normally occur in Bavaria every year. The problem arises in that the migration crisis is straining the Bavarian healthcare system unevenly, with hospitals in migrant "hotspots" such as Deggendorf, Ingolstadt and Passau bearing the brunt of medical care.
Markus Beier, director of the Bavarian Association of Family Physicians (Bayerischer Hausärzteverband), says that doctors in areas with large concentrations of asylum seekers are being called upon all hours of the night and day, making it impossible for them to provide anyone with superior levels of care.

Max Kaplan, director of the Bavarian Medical Board (Bayerische Landesärztekammer), says that the challenges associated with medical treatment for migrants are exacerbated by language and cultural barriers, which are "tiresome, time consuming and sometimes impossible to overcome."

We are now in 2021 and not in 2015!
And the immigrants have nothing to do with Covid.
