The FDA Still Hasn’t Approved 2 New Drugs That Could Help End the Pandemic

The number of COVID-19-related deaths is on the rise. Politicians tell us to put on masks and get vaccinated.

In the midst of all this fear, it’s surprising that there hasn’t been more information about COVID-19’s potential threats.

Pfizer’s Paxlovid reduces the chance of death and hospitalization by 89 percent in blind testing Pfizer was compelled to use it. StopThese are the tests.

They stopped the clinical trials! Michael Cannon, Cato Institute director of health policy in his new video exclaims.

They decided that it was unethical [not to give the drug to people in the control group]. If it isn’t ethical to deny, TheyIt’s illegal to refuse the drug The American publicThis drug is addictive!”

This is a great point. That’s exactly what the Food and Drug Administration does. We are forced to wait for them to make sure that all drugs meet their strict standards.

They might be delayed for as long as possible

Cannon states that “if FDA continues to follow its current policy,” it’ll only take a few months.

It is a significant improvement on the previous months 10-yearsIt usually takes the FDA. The FDA loosen regulations in order to provide medicines faster during the pandemic.

“[But]Cannon says that thousands are being lost unnecessarily.

The FDA withheld approval for many AIDS medications at the start the AIDS crisis. To purchase AIDS medications from Mexico, some Americans created “buyers’ clubs.” It’s exactly what this movie depicts. Dallas Buyers ClubIt was approximately.

However, it is against the law to purchase unapproved medicines from another country.

The United Kingdom now approves Molnupiravir (Mercck’s coronavirus-antiviral pill). It reduced hospitalizations by 30% in tests.

It can’t be done in America. FDA says that more input is required.

While more input is helpful in general, FDA’s response time is slow.

Cannon points out that Molnupiravir was approved in the United Kingdom at the start of November. The FDA has not even acknowledged that molnupiravir was approved by the United Kingdom. Get togetherIt is not possible to determine whether or not to approve the bill before November 31st. “In the meantime, many Americans perished.”

President Joe Biden praises FDA employees for their hard work, even though people continue to die.

Cannon says, “We shouldn’t be applauding them for doing something that no one should do. Which is violating your right to make health decisions.” We would make a big difference in restoring your rights to health if we allowed patients to buy drugs approved by other countries.

FDA regulators do not want to cause death but have an incentive for slow progress. Bad publicity can result if FDA approves a drug that causes pain or suffering. They could be fired.

No bureaucrat should be blamed if people are killed due to delayed approval. It is impossible to know which individuals could have been saved.

Cannon states, “That’s why FDA always tries it to ensure that an unsafe drug is never allowed on the marketplace.” Cannon says, “Even though it costs years and many lives to do so.

His solution? No FDA.

I disagree. “Some people will try drugs that could kill them.”

He replies, “Yes. Some people will have adverse drug reactions.” But the amount of lives saved by unsafe drugs would be greater than those lost.

Because some individuals were being harmed with quack medicine, the FDA was established 100 years ago. Some are still being affected.

Cannon states, “The whole premise of an FDA agency is that you aren’t smart enough to take these decisions for yourselves.”

Maybe we are. NotHe is smart enough to know that I am. “I am not smart enough for me to know if the pill actually works, or whether I’m being sold snake-oil.”

John says, “It is not true that your brain doesn’t have the ability to make these decisions for you.” Experts, such as your physician or medical journals, can be consulted. Consumer Reports is another option. Consult with other governments. Every day, the FDA delays cost lives.”

He’s right.

After a regulatory agency was established, it is easy to believe that government alone can handle the task. This is false.

Cannon concludes, “The FDA must get out of our way.” Cannon concludes, “Let the patients take their own decisions.”
