MUST READ! U.S. Medical News: White House Removes US FDA's Power To Regulate and Standardize All Medical Laboratory Tests Including For COVID-19!
U.S. Medical News
: In what is shocking the medical community not only in America but also internationally, the white house has issued a new policy order midweek that removed all regulatory powers from the US FDA with regards to regulating and standardizing all medical laboratory test.
The new order which even stunned the US FDA, shocked health experts and laboratories because of its timing, American media reported.
The new change could result in unreliable coronavirus tests getting on the market, potentially worsening the testing crisis in the United States, experts told the media.
Also, the one thing the change won't do is solve testing shortages, because those are due mostly to a lack of the swabs and chemical reagents needed to perform COVID-19 tests, medical experts are warning.
Many are saying that intense lobbying and bribery by big pharma companies and biotech corporations could be behind the move.
The new policy would make erode America’s medical industry and also the American diagnostic and medical equipment perceived reliability in international markets.
Supporters however claimed it could help get innovative tests to market more quickly. They said that the US FDA review process sharply slowed testing at the beginning of the pandemic, and that the new policy could guard against future bottlenecks.
White House administration officials told the media that the decision was made for legal reasons.
However U.S. FDA Commissioner Stephen Hahn staunchly opposed the change, arguing that such authority is critical during a public health emergency like the pandemic.
The laboratory tests affected by the change are those developed by and used at laboratories regulated under the federal government's Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments program. Such labs are in big academic medical centers, smaller commercial laboratories , hospitals and big testing companies such as Quest and LabCorp.
The White House has already interferred in drug approvals like in the case of the dangerous drugs chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine to treat COVID-19 and also remdesivir's approvals, and also have got involved in vaccine developments and now finally diagnostics itself, often refuting any scientific or medical expertise.There is even speculations now that even a toxic herbal product manufactured by one of the President's close associates containing the cardiotoxic product called Oleandrin might be approved as a supplement to treat COVID-19 despite dissaprovals from the medical community.https://www.axios.com/trump-covid-oleandrin-9896f570-6cd8-4919-af3a-65ebad113d41.html
The history of the U.S.FDA's power to regulate lab-developed tests has long been murky. For years, the U.S.FDA has asserted authority over the tests but has typically only acted on it in the midst of health crises.
It was reported that during the Obama administration, the U.S.FDA proposed tighter regulation during normal times, a move that drew intense opposition from labs and never happened. But during public health emergencies, the
U.S.FDA has required test developers to seek an emergency use authorization that allows regulators to review the tests for accuracy.
Americans are facing the worse times in the history of the country with millions of Americans getting infected with the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus and more than 178,000 Americans have died so far with projections for much more to die over the coming months. As for the estimated 70 millions already infected (official figures stand at about 5.8 million but the US CDC and NIH has already projected that the real figures could be 10 to12 fold!) and still alive, almost all will have to suffer long term health and medical conditions as new studies are emerging to support this and even worse, certain medical experts are now speculating that these individuals will most probably have shortened life spans.
It must also be noted that unfortunately many Americans are arrogant despite being ignorant, and have the mentality that only America is smart enough when it comes to medical issues. We at Thailand Medical News for instance found that Americans have the stupid mentality that only news media or medical media from their country is the only reliable source of information or that only their greedy doctors that are making huge commissions from pharma companies know what is best. It was laughable when Thailand Medical News recently interacted with a couple of facebook groups of COVID-19 survivors, some of these stupid ignorant American administrators had the attitude that foreign medical media were not reliable sources of information or that their doctors who were prescribing the wrong drugs knew better than us in countries like Thailand.(where we only have had 58 COVID-19 deaths of which almost 95 percent were infected Chinese Nationals who flew in to Thailand and about 3390 infections of which 67 percent were foreigners and the rest Thais returning from foreign countries) There was so much misinformation being shared on these American facebookgroups and its was laughable to see the degree of stupidity. Already a lot of these stupid Americans had toxic drugs like chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine shafted down their throats by their own stupid doctors who do not question and now drugs that do not have any long term safety studies ever done on them like remdesivir. The American mainstream media, the American social media, the American pharma and biotech giants, the American Government, Huge American corporations, etc have all brainwashed the majority of these ignorant Americans into not believing in that there are cheaper and better alternatives like cheaper generic drugs that could be repurposed, supplements and herbs that could be used to help and treat certain aspects of the COVID-19 disease or even act as prophylactic agents.
Only a handful of American doctors, researchers and common Americans are smart enough and taking things into their own hands.
With the new announced changes, we can expect to see a lot of bigger American entities that had their cheaper but not reliable diagnostic products made in China (but rebranded) now flooding America and more Americans are going to be misdiagnosed and mistreated and most probably die but no one is to be blamed as its their arrogance and ignorant attitude that is allowing this.
