Attorneys Daniel Watkins and Michael Hamilton represent the families of patients who claim their loved ones were injured or killed in hospitals after being administered Remdesivir for covid.
Remdesivir was one of the primary drugs for covid given emergency use approval by the FDA to hospitals across the US, and the world.
Remdesivir was originally developed in 2009 by Gilead Sciences to treat hepatitis C and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), but it didn’t work against those diseases. So they “repurposed” it for Ebola and Marburg viruses in 2014. It wasn’t effective in stopping the replication of those viruses either. So it was then “repurposed” for Covid.
Ironically, and sadly, the World Health Organization advised that Remdesivir shouldn’t be used on hospitalized Covid-19 patients.
“The antiviral remdesivir should not be used as treatment for hospitalized Covid-19 patients, the World Health Organization said Thursday, only a month after the Food and Drug Administration approved the drug to treat patients over age 12 who are hospitalized with Covid-19.
Remdesivir, also known as Veklury, and the steroid dexamethasone are the only drugs authorized to treat Covid-19 patients. But a recent massive global study of remdesivir’s effectiveness, run by the WHO, showed that remdesivir had little or no impact on hospitalized patients, contradicting previous trials.
“Remdesivir has no meaningful effect on mortality or on other important outcomes for patients, such as the need for mechanical ventilation or time to clinical improvement,” experts from the WHO Guideline Development Group wrote in a statement. The review was published in The BMJ, a medical journal.
In light of the interim data from the WHO’s “Solidarity” trial — which included data from more than 11,200 people in 30 countries — “remdesivir is now classified as a drug you should not use routinely in Covid-19 patients,” the president of the European Society of Intensive Care Medicine, Jozef Kesecioglu, said in an interview with Reuters.”

The Truth for health Foundation reports this about the lawsuit
“Attorneys Dan Watkins and Michael Hamilton announced in a national Press Conference September 7 the filing of their first-in-the-nation landmark lawsuit against three hospitals on behalf of families who had lost their loved ones with the “bounties” paid to hospitals for using the toxic combination of food and fluid restriction, remdesivir, mechanical ventilation, high dose morphine-midazolam respiration-suppressing cocktail to spiral patients down the dark road to death.
After more than 2 ½ years of daily COVID deaths in America’s hospitals, we finally have the first two attorneys in the US to take legal action boldly and courageously against three hospitals in Fresno, California for wrongful death, medical battery, elder abuse and other violations of patients’ rights to hold these hospital administrators, doctors and nurse accountable for such horrific patient abuses.
The truth for Health Foundation has pledged financial support for this lawsuit as one of our human rights defense efforts to serve the public good by helping protect public safety, defend patient rights, and defend life. Both Attorney Watkins and Attorney Hamilton have been engaged by Truth for Health Foundation to assist on several legal initiatives to help defend human and civil rights secured by law.”
