Should’ve listened to Dr. Fauci
PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla —47-year-old Florida teacher, Tamara Drock, hospitalized with COVID-19 has died after her husband, Ryan Rock, sued in an unsuccessful effort to force doctors to treat her with ivermectin.
He sued the hospital last month in an attempt to require doctors to administer ivermectin, a drug used to treat conditions caused by parasitic worms. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has not approved the drug to treat COVID-19, saying it hasn’t proved effective in pre-clinical trials.
Palm Beach County Circuit Judge James Nutt rejected Drock’s lawsuit last month, saying allowing judges to countermand doctor’s decisions could set a dangerous precedent.
Nutt encouraged the Drock family to try to negotiate a deal on their own with the doctors at the hospital. A doctor at the hospital did eventually agree to administer ivermectin, though the family attorney said it was too low of a dose, per ABC.
“I’m hoping they name a law after her so no one has to go through this. If she had walked out of the hospital she could have had the medication,” Drock said.
He was also infected with COVID-19 but recovered, according to ABC.
She was unvaccinated for COVID-19.
