While the government delay approval for the new Pfizer drug to treat Covid one must ask who will live and who will die? Of course, we want to make sure a drug is safe before being sent out to the general public but how many people will end up 6 feet under before said approval. Pfizer claims that 50 % of the people who took this drug stopped hospitalization with Merck Roche and Atea Pharmaceuticals not far behind as well. Yet without the medicine on a doctor’s prescription pad, I wonder how many will not have this chance to survive? It seems practical then that the federal government should have an emergency authorization on said drugs and let the buyer beware of the effect that is unless the government doesn’t actually seek a cure but control instead.
