Man, 71, Was on His Death Bed with COVID, Then This Saved His Life: Lawyer

Western Journal

Published

on

A man dying of COVID-19 in a Naperville, Illinois, hospital has recovered after a judge ordered him to be treated with ivermectin, his lawyer said.

Sun Ng got the drug despite ongoing attempts by Edward Hospital to prevent him from receiving it, the man’s attorney told WFLD-TV.

Sun, 71, traveled from Hong Kong to the U.S. to visit his daughter and family as they celebrated the first birthday of Sun’s granddaughter, The Epoch Times reported. Contracting COVID, he entered the hospital on Oct. 14.

His condition declined and within days he was placed on a ventilator, while the hospital treated him with remdesivir — a controversial drug being used, with questionable FDA approval, to treat COVID.

Remdesivir has shown some effectiveness in reducing reduce the length of time one is sick with COVID, but has not effectively reduced the death rate, according to the New England Journal of Medicine.

Sun’s daughter, Man Kwan Ng, has a doctorate in mechanical engineering; she did her own research and came to the conclusion that her father should be given the medicine being resisted by the medical establishment: ivermectin.

In the U.S., ivermectin is approved for treatment of internal and external parasites in humans and for treatment of animals. There is strong evidence that it also is effective in treating COVID.

According to the Ng’s family attorney, Kirstin Erickson, Edward Hospital said no to Man Kwan’s request, and refused a physician willing to administer ivermectin access to the family.

So Man Kwan sued in the Circuit Court of DuPage County and on Nov. 1, Judge Paul Fullerton issued a temporary restraining order requiring the hospital to allow ivermectin to be administered to Sun.

The hospital refused to comply.

Meanwhile, Sun was described by one physician as “basically on his death bed” with no more than a 15 percent chance of recovery, according to testimony in a Nov. 5 court hearing, The Epoch Times reported.

Describing the testimony, Fullerton said risks of possible side effects from ivermectin — dizziness, itchiness and diarrhea — “are so minimal that Mr. Ng’s current situation outweighs that risk by one-hundredfold.”

So on Nov. 5, Fullerton immediately issued a preliminary injunction calling for Sun’s physician, Dr. Alain Bain, to administer ivermectin to Sun.

The hospital again refused to comply, saying Bain could not be granted temporary hospital privileges ordered by the judge because Bain was not vaccinated for COVID and the hospital’s chief medical officer was not available to oversee the administering of the medication.

Through her lawyers, Man Kwan filed an emergency report with Fullerton’s court on Nov. 8.  The judge issued an admonishment to the hospital and told them Bain — who presented proof of not having COVID — must be allowed in the hospital for 15 days to treat Sun.

The hospital filed to stay the order but Fullerton denied the motion and ordered compliance.

Upon receiving ivermectin, Sun showed improvement literally overnight, according to Erickson. “Today, he passed a breathing test that he hadn’t been able to pass in the last three weeks and he looked more alert and aware,” she told WFLD.



Regarding ivermectin, Erickson said, “It’s really important because it’s a lifesaving measure and there’s almost no downside to it.”

Apparently, the ivermectin was so effective that on Saturday, Sun was discharged from the hospital.

“My father is a tough man,” Man Kwan told the Epoch Times. “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,” she continued.

“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.”

Erickson told WFLD that Bain has given ivermectin to other patients, including, despite hospital objections, to a woman on a ventilator in a facility within the same hospital group as Edward Hospital.

“And she walked out of the hospital and she’s alive today,” Erickson said.

“And that’s the power of ivermectin. This isn’t about villiainizing the hospital, this isn’t about red or blue, this is about saving lives. And vaccination status, you know, when someone’s on their death bed, that’s irrelevant.”

Asked by WFLD about pressures on the Ng family during the ordeal, Erickson said, “ It’s been really hard for Man Kwan — she’s here alone with her husband, she’s an only child and her father came over from Hong Kong just to celebrate her daughter’s birthday, so it’s been really, really hard on her.”

“But we’re Christians here at Mauck & Baker [law firm], she’s a believer and we believe God’s on the move and healing her father.”

Like Edward Hospital — which, citing privacy issues, has refused comment on the Sun Ng case — the medical establishment has resisted the use of ivermectin, resorting to debunking its effectiveness and safety, mocking its use and even threatening licenses of doctors.

The answer, according to the establishment, is treatment similar to what they gave Sun, or the use of mRNA vaccines of which some have questioned the efficacy and safety.

But despite ongoing pressure and draconian censorship, alternate opinions and evidence leak out, and learning those things in a literal life-and-death fight, the Ng family has more things to celebrate as they enter the Christmas season.

And there’s a lesson from Man Kwan: Do your own research.

A personal disclosure: Although not admitted to the hospital, I was diagnosed with COVID in March. While I felt too sick to comprehend it, my wife noted immediate improvement to my symptoms after she, a retired nurse in consultation with my physician, administered to me ivermectin. Then, after several weeks of severe fatigue, I was glad to be fully recovered.

Americans Unleash on Biden After Encountering Bare Shelves at Grocery Stores Across Country

Western Journal

Published

on

President Joe Biden’s supply chain crisis has been raging for some time, and it is now wreaking havoc on Americans trying to live their everyday lives.

According to Fox News, a growing number of Americans are experiencing massive shortages at their local grocery stores, and they are directing their ire at Biden because of it.

Many Twitter users began using the hashtag #BareShelvesBiden to showcase the precarious situations at their local stores.

Some users told stories of the lengths they had to go to in order to find seemingly basic food items.

“This was the 2nd store we went to looking for bagels,” one user said. “Found the bagels but zero — ZERO — plain cream cheese. If you want Kraft parmesan cheese or Top Ramen, you’re pretty much out of luck.”

Even CNBC senior White House correspondent Kayla Tausche compared the situation to the apocalypse, which is surprising coming from an employee of a leftist establishment media outlet.

Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms noticed the problem too, albeit only through the third party she hired to shop for her. She suggested that the supply shortages were a localized issue.

Some commenters felt Bottoms was trying to insinuate that southwest Atlanta was having problems because it is a lower-income area. If that was her intention, residents from other portions of Atlanta and surrounding areas quickly rebutted the claim.

By the looks of it, Biden’s supply chain crisis is affecting almost everyone, regardless of income or political affiliation.

As a general rule, it is not a good development for a president when his failures start to greatly affect the lives of everyday Americans.

Will supply chain issues hurt Democrats in the midterm elections?

While many less politically inclined citizens may be willing to overlook foreign policy issues or government spending excesses, they are much less likely to ignore their own inability to buy the food they want.

In a time where Biden’s approval is tanking and Democrats are panicking about the upcoming midterm elections, empty grocery store shelves are just another point in a long list of problems for the Biden administration.

Soros-Backed Prosecutor Marilyn Mosby Indicted on 4 Federal Charges

Western Journal

immigration

On Thursday, a federal grand jury chose to indict Baltimore’s top prosecutor on four counts.

Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby now faces charges of perjury and “making false mortgage applications in the purchase of two Florida vacation homes,” the Office of the U.S. Attorney for the District of Maryland told The Associated Press.

The charges are related to Mosby’s alleged lies about “meeting qualifications for coronavirus-related distributions from a city retirement plan in 2020.”

Prosecutors say Mosby lied on multiple mortgage application forms when she attempted to buy homes in Kissimmee, Florida, and Long Boat Key, Florida.

Mosby first entered the spotlight in 2015 during the infamous Baltimore riots following the death of Freddie Gray.

The openly progressive prosecutor pursued charges against the six police officers involved in Gray’s death.

In the end, none of the officers were convicted.

Mosby has long been criticized for her progressive approach.

Under her tenure in Baltimore, which began in 2015, the number of murders, rapes, aggravated assaults, burglaries and robberies all rose, according to an Oct. 27, 2020, report from The Heritage Foundation.

Most recently, Mosby faced criticism in November for defending Joseph Rosenbaum, the convicted sex offender who was shot while allegedly attempting to murder Kyle Rittenhouse during the Kenosha, Wisconsin, racial justice riots of 2020.

This most recent federal indictment comes months after a federal investigation into her affairs was first announced.

Both Mosby and her husband Nick Mosby, the president of the Baltimore City Council, faced various accusations in March of 2021 related to their alleged illicit use of campaign funds.

The duo was purportedly using campaign funds to pay off personal legal fees and travel expenses.

A federal probe was issued into their financial dealings at the time.

The accusations and alleged discrepancies did not stop at the campaign funds, however.

An additional federal subpoena had been issued to two churches in order to investigate whether Nick Mosby had been making financial contributions to either institution.

Both Mosbys were reportedly issued a lien by the IRS following three full years of unpaid taxes on their property. It is unknown if that lien was paid.

The two perjury counts carry a maximum sentence of five years in prison and the two mortgage-related offenses could carry with them a maximum of 30 years in prison each, according to the AP.
