COVID-19 Early Treatment Options - where are they?

Micky Turner made this Official Information request to Andrew Little

Response to this request is long overdue. By law Andrew Little should have responded by now (details and exceptions). You can complain to the Ombudsman.

From: Micky Turner

Dear Andrew Little,

Can you please advise if you have organized the supply of and are offering people with Covid-19 any of the following:

Fluvoxamine 89%
Budesonide 81%
Vitamin D 81%
Vitamin A 79%
Quercetin 79%
Melatonin 78%
Zinc 74%
Povidone-Iodine 71%
Sotrovimab 67%
Ivermectin 67%
Vitamin C 43%
Aspirin 21%

I have included their early treatment efficacy % beside each one. This information can be found at c19early.com

These vitamins and OTC meds should by now be being handed out to everyone with Covid 19 and their close contacts:

Vitamin D 81%
Vitamin A 79%
Quercetin 79%
Melatonin 78%
Zinc 74%
Povidone-Iodine 71%
Vitamin C 43%
Aspirin 21%

Ivermectin should also be given to people who wish to take it, so long as they have been shown the various study data and give informed consent. At worst they may get diarrhea - at best - it may save their life.

The Ministry of Health should also have enough Budesonide and inhalers for 100,000 people.

You have had 20 months to prepare for this. People are now dying. We no longer have time to play politics or who has the biggest medical degree. We need to take notice of the data and respond rapidly.

Dear Steph Harding,

Thanks, but this request is specifically for the Minister of Health.

Legislation allows the Minister to organize and purchase medication directly for the public.

I think that if a person doesn't have a broad understanding of all medications which may be needed 2 years into a pandemic - and is unwilling to familiarize themselves with them - they should not be in the role of Minister of Health.

Please shift the request back to the Minister of Health.

Yours sincerely,

Micky Turner
