Hong Kong resident, Sum Ng, 79, was visiting the United States in October to celebrate his granddaughter’s first birthday when he contracted a severe case of COVID, requiring hospitalization and a ventilator.
CBN reports that when doctors at Edward hospital in Naperville, Illinois stated that Ng had a 50-50 chance of surviving, the family requested that he be administered Ivermectin.
When the doctors refused, the family went to court and a judge granted Dr Alain Bain emergency privileges at the hospital, allowing him to administer Ivermectin to Ng, who at this point had been on a ventilator for 22 days.
Bain gave Ivermectin to Ng for five days and on Nov 27, 2021, he was released from hospital fully recovered.
In a statement following his release, Ng’s daughter, Man Kwan Ng, said:
“My father is a tough man. He was working so hard to survive, and of course, with God’s holding hands. He weaned off oxygen about three days after moving out of the ICU. He started oral feeding before hospital discharge. He returned home without carrying a bottle of oxygen and a feeding tube installed to his stomach. He can now stand with a walker at the bedside and practice stepping. After being sedated for a month on a ventilator in ICU, his performance is beyond our expectations. Praise the Lord.”
This is not the first time that courts have ordered hospitals to administer Ivermectin to COVID patients.
FOR THE RECORD: America’s National Institute of Health (NIH), an agency of the US government’s Department of Health and Human Services, even lists Ivermectin as a possible treatment for COVID on its website.
