“Outside of a research protocol, use should be limited to patients whose clinical situation is severe, evaluated on a case-by-case basis, supported by an interdisciplinary committee of experts,” said INESSS.
The position of INESSS and therefore of the government of Quebec is irresponsible and uninformed, because it is exactly when the clinical status of a patient is severe that treatment does not work!
Treat early, as soon as the person has tested positive. This is what emerges from research and therapeutic practices in Marseille.
Perhaps these researchers should go and visit Marseille rather than take positions with deadly consequences.
To refer to their slogan, (absence of) knowledge seems to take a macabre turn with such an analysis!
Let us hope that Prime Minister Legault does not follow this irresponsible recommendation!
