Didier Raoult, director of the IHU, the Institute of Infectious Diseases in Marseille and one of the first to champion the use of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) for COVID-19 treatment, has filed a complaint against the National Agency for the Safety of Medicines and Health Products (ANSM). Raoult’s legal representative, Fabrice di Vizio, states that the French health agency is “endangering the lives of others” by preventing doctors from prescribing HCQ for COVID-19 cases. Di Vizio adds, “it is well known that remdesevir is a dangerous and ineffective product. The criminal judge will intervene to find out if there is any contact between members of the ANSM and people from the Gilead laboratory”. [Gilead is the maker of Remdesevir.

Meanwhile, studies showing the inefficacy of HCQ are either faulty, or are outright fraud [see Scientific fraud at top medical journals affect world COVID-19 policy].
