Merck Price Gouges New COVID Treatment...But It's About Public Health, Right?


Anyone sucked into a belief that there isn’t a political or corporate agenda behind the China Virus might gleefully welcome some recent news from a Big Pharma giant. The liberal mainstream media got all mushy over a reported COVID-breakthrough drug from Merck.

Seems one of Big Pharma’s largest financial beneficiaries from COVID has found a new pill to battle the China-caused global pandemic. This is marvelous news, right? Well, not so much if you explore all the other potential COVID remedies that have been either ignored or discredited.

Over the last year, the corrupt liberal media have consistently downplayed successful treatments for COVID, such as hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin. But why would they do this? Take a quick look at the internal banking records of these liberal media mouthpieces, and you soon discover your answer.

The talking heads of the mainstream media genuflected to Merck for this great pharmaceutical discovery to help save humanity. However, these same talking heads failed to mention that Merck will market this little pill at 40 times the production cost.

The Intercept reported:

A FIVE-DAY COURSE of molnupiravir, the new medicine being hailed as a “huge advance” in the treatment of Covid-19, costs $17.74 to produce, according to a report issued last week by drug pricing experts at the Harvard School of Public Health and King’s College Hospital in London. Merck is charging the U.S. government $712 for the same amount of medicine, or 40 times the price.

Last Friday’s announcement that the new medicine cut the risk of hospitalization among clinical trial participants with moderate or mild illness in half could have huge implications for the course of the coronavirus pandemic. Because it’s a pill — as opposed to monoclonal antibodies, a comparable antiviral treatment that is administered intravenously — molnupiravir is expected to be more widely used and, hopefully, will cut the death rate. In the first 29 days of the trial, no deaths were reported among the 385 patients who received the drug, while eight of the people who received a placebo died, according to the statement put out by Merck and Ridgeback Biotherapeutics, the two companies that are jointly launching it.

In addition, production funding is coming out of your tax dollars. Seems this little lifesaving pill will put big money in Big Pharma’s pocket. Does this sound familiar? Go pay for necessary prescription medicine today, and you’ll soon get the feel of the experience firsthand.

These people aren’t out to be hailed as some saviors of mankind. They’re out to make money. The lunacy of the mainstream media is they lavish all over these crooks. Merck has supposedly discovered a game-changing pill that will save the world.

The problem is that the same potential lifesaving medicines have been around, some for decades. Their product value has decreased for the Big Pharma companies that produce them. This won’t meet their agenda.

So, Big Pharma comes up with new drugs, as unnecessary as they may be. That’s not really the biggest part of the problem. The biggest part of this problem is with the scatterbrains in the mainstream media who continue to peddle these insults to human intelligence.
