Dr. Ben Carson talked to the Epoch Times and said that people have been having tunnel visions dealing with the pandemic.
“Let’s throw the politics out. We could solve this problem pretty quickly,” he added.

“Let’s open this thing up to all the different mechanisms,” Carson said. He’s a neurosurgeon, awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2008 for his work. In 2013, he was retired and ran for the presidency in 2016.
“Let’s look around the world at things that work. Let’s look at the fact that on the western coast of Africa, there’s almost no COVID. And let’s ask ourselves, why is that? And then you see, it’s because they take antimalarials, particularly hydroxychloroquine. Let’s study that. Let’s see what’s going on there.’’ He said.
“Let’s listen to these physician groups who’ve had incredible success with Ivermectin. Let’s look at the results with monoclonal antibodies. Let’s look at all of these things. Let’s put them all in our armamentarium so that we don’t have a one-size-fits-all system.” Ben Carson added.
The FDA for some time authorized hydroxychloroquine for C-19 treatment but very fast revoked the EUA in June 2020 because there wasn’t data proving its effectiveness.
The FDA hasn’t approved Ivermectin until now, even though there is enough evidence of its effectiveness.
Using one of these drugs to treat C-19 patients is very controversial. Some studies tell that the drugs can treat C-19 effectively. The vaccine confidence insight report released from the CDC labeled these claims as misinformation.
“COVID is a virus. Viruses mutate. That’s what they do. And they will continue to mutate,” Carson said.
“We can admit that and deal with it, or we can take every little mutation and every little change and try to make it into a crisis so we can frighten people and control their lives more,” Carson said.
In a WH C-19 Task Force briefing on December 15, the CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walesnsky stated that she thinks Omicron cases will increase in the upcoming weeks, telling people to take preventive measures to get vaccinated and get booster doses.
“We should be using every tool available to us to fight the pandemic. There’s no question about that,” Carson said. “But that means, you know, therapeutics, which had been poo-pooed. And I understand why. Because in order to get a EUA—an emergency use authorization—to pursue the vaccines, you can’t have anything that’s effective as an alternative. So, that’s a defect in our system; we need to get rid of that.”
I think a lot of people died unnecessarily because we had that attitude,” Carson continued. He added that monoclonal antibodies saved him when he got contracted the virus and was seriously ill.
The FDA issued the first EUA for monoclonal antibodies to treat C-19 patients in November 2020.
“There are many things that have been very effective that we have not pursued, including natural immunity,” Carson said.
“Well, why wouldn’t you collect that information? Why wouldn’t you want to know that? The only reason you wouldn’t do that is that you didn’t want to know the answer,” he said. “Because it didn’t fit very neatly into what you’re trying to do, which is get everybody to be vaccinated.”
Precisely because of this, people lost trust in federal health agencies.
“A lot of people who probably should be vaccinated are not doing it because they see these inconsistencies, these things that make absolutely no sense,” Carson said. “This demands that everybody get a vaccination, except if you’re coming across the southern border illegally, then it’s not all that important.”
Carson doesn’t support the suggestion to vaccinate the children.
“We have a situation where you have the government advocating that children be vaccinated, even though the risk for death for a child with COVID is 0.025 percent, essentially the same as it is for seasonal flu. You don’t see us doing all this every year for seasonal flu,” Carson stated.
“The risk of mortality for a healthy child is approaching zero, and yet we’re saying do this without knowing what the long-term risks are?” he said. “And why would you subject an innocent child to a lifetime of unknown risk? It just makes absolutely no sense.”
“We need to have faith in our government. We need to have faith in our health care systems. And by injecting politics into it, I think we have put ourselves behind the eight ball. It’s going to take a while to reestablish that trust,” he said.
“Why not learn how to look at what’s logical and what makes sense? And why not encourage discussion of those things, rather than everybody getting their respective corners and shooting hand grenades at each other?”
“The only path is strong leadership. We don’t have that.” Carson concluded.
