The Daily Beast reports on West Seneca-based lawyer Ralph Lorigo, who claims to be the most in-demand attorney nationwide for people who attempt to force hospitals and doctors to give dying loved ones ivermectin for COVID-19 infections. Thomas Russo, professor and chief of infectious disease at the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences at UB, is quoted. “Until we get some sort of signal [ivermectin is] beneficial,” he said, “it’s in our patients’ best interest to hold off.” He added: “It’s not like we’re not treating these patients and don’t have some drugs that work,” he added. Russo said he believes it is dangerous for courts to enter into the argument and force the hand of doctors. The article was carried by Yahoo! News and MSN.
