A Hong Kong man visiting Illinois to celebrate his only granddaughter’s first birthday found himself in the hospital with Covid in what became a life-threatening battle.
The grandfather, 71-year-old Sun Ng, is alive to tell the story thanks to a judge who respects freedom of choice and a man named Dr. Alan Bain, who was willing to prescribe him the controversial drug ivermectin.
In October, a hospital in the Chicago area refused to give Mr. Ng the Nobel Prize-winning, FDA-approved drug that his doctor prescribed him because Dr. Bain is not vaccinated for Covid.
Edward Hospital argued allowing Sun Ng to be treated with ivermectin could result in side effects, that it would violate their policies, and that a court forcing the issue would be “extraordinary” judicial overreach.
By November, Sun’s daughter Dr. Man Kwan Ng filed a lawsuit against the hospital in an attempt to have him treated with ivermectin as he was on a ventilator and not doing well.
The family attorney Kirstin Erickson told Fox 32, “Mr. Ng is as good as dead in the picture, which was taken on November 4. And at that point the hospital still wouldn’t give the Ivermectin.”
In a November 5 decision, DuPage County Circuit Court Judge Paul Fullerton ruled, “I can’t think of a more extraordinary situation than when we are talking about a man’s life. I am not forcing this hospital to do anything other than to step aside. I am just asking—or not asking—I am ordering through the Court’s power to allow Dr. Bain to have the emergency privileges and administer this medicine.”
At one point, Judge Fullerton cited a government website to prove ivermectin is not a dangerous drug, telling the court, “(N)umber one, generally well tolerated; number two, dizziness; number three, pruritus; number four, nausea/diarrhea. These are the side effects for the dosage that’s being asked to be administered. The risks of these side effects are so minimal that Mr. Ng’s current situation outweighs that risk by one-hundredfold.”
Between November 8 and November 12, Dr. Bain was allowed to administer a five-day course of 24 milligrams of ivermectin.
Dr. Ng said her father’s recovery “is beyond our expectations,” and thanked both Judge Fullerton and Dr. Bain, saying, “Our family especially thanks Judge Paul Fullerton. Without him, we couldn’t bring my father home and couldn’t see him smile at us again. We also sincerely thank Dr. Alan Bain for walking along with us and his administration of ivermectin to my father.”
“Every day after ivermectin, there was accelerated and stable improvement,” Dr. Bain explained. “Three times we’ve shown something. There’s a signal of benefit for ventilator patients.”
By November 16, Ng was out of the ICU and breathing without supplemental oxygen, and he was finally released from the hospital on November 27.
“My father’s recovery is amazing,” Dr. Man Kwan Ng said in a statement. “My father is a tough man. 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. 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.”
The medical establishment is so hungry for money and power that it would rather watch tens of thousands of Americans die on ventilators all because ivermectin is cheaply made and therefore not profitable.
Back in December 2020, Dr. Pierre Kory went before a Senate committee to explain the effectiveness of Ivermectin. Is it any wonder that he went on to treat 200 members of Congress.
